There are a few ways to spin cameras. Traditionally a Scorpio head has been used this comes with its own issues. I have a few ways of spinning the MK-V AR head independently of level for different types of applications enabling the camera to fly anywhere at any angle and that camera can rotate in shot. I was asked by Will Sheldon to spin the camera for an effect for an Orbital video “Wonky”.
Here is a little making-of the video demonstrating the MK-V AR IRHU (Independent Rotating Head Unit).
Below is the final video shot by a couple of cameramen on a mixture of 5D and RED cameras.
