Post I'm new and have no idea really!
I'm new and having just bought a pro video camera that takes some nice quality interval record timelapses, please see: [vimeo]http://vimeo.com/13101458
I know what I want but don't know the lingo you guys use for it! I am not too concerned about capturing the timelapses themselves as I will probably be restricted to daylight, but more making the movements
Basically I would like to be able to dolly along and possibly around objects, I know many of you use DSLRs etc. but I have a 9kg camera with legs, and that's what I''ll be using.
I'm sure there's no need to re-invent the wheel with my question as I'm sure many of you are more than familiar with a system that will work as I have described.

What is the common solution to this set-up? Best result/lowest cost is always best but I'm happy to look at anything, buying it off the shelf (preferably)
or building it. There must be a best-practice consensus, model, brand, what is it do you think? Just in case there is software involved by the way I use Mac.
Thanks a lot.

From your description you sound like you want to to do more realtime moves rather than timelapse?

Most of the rigs that people on this forum buy/build are more suited to shoot SLOW time lapse sequences. eg. a 10 second shot may take several hours to shoot.

Perhaps a suggestion for starters is to examine the camBLOCK system to see if it covers your requirements :http://www.camblock.com/sect-parts.php

Welcome and good shooting.
