I’m a cinematographer mainly working on documentary projects. For the next feature I’m about to work on, we’ll have to shoot two characters in a car, driving from Belgium to Lebanon over a period of one month.
We’re thinking to rig a camera in the center with a wide lens to have a 2-shot, and shoot in 6k in order to be able to crop the image and have 2 different close-ups. The camera we’re planning to use is the Z CAM E2-F6, mainly for it’s small form factor.
I’m looking for advise on how to monitor and control the camera from another car (we don’t want any crew members in the main car). Do you think the wi-fi antenna and the app would cover the distance? Or is it better to use a something like Teradek (Teradek Bolt 500 LT )? But in this case, would it be also possible to control the camera settings? Or is there something we could do with the camera’s Gigabit Ethernet connection?
Any hints or advise on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
