“The JTZ DP30 Filmmaker System offers a great set of classic rig-parts in a high-end fashion. JTZ is the high-end brand from Fotga!…”
Every so often I wonder whether I should look further into the idea of shoulder-mounting mirrorless hybrid video cameras in order to approach the way I once used the Super 8 and Super 16 movie cameras on which I learned cinematography.
Then I take a serious look into the prices and the carrying weight of contemporary shoulder mount systems and set that idea aside for another day.
Until I came across Lucas Pfaff’s series of videos on the JTZ DP30 system.
JTZ, Lucas Pfaff tells us, is the higher-end brand of Fotga, the Chinese camera accessories makers whose DP500 follow focus device is used by documentary moviemaker Sol March of Suggestion of Motion.
Neither Fotga nor JTZ appear to have their own websites or retail through B&H Photo Video, so the only recourse is to buy from Amazon or ebay.
Meanwhile I will be looking for videos and other reviews of the JTZ DP300 in action on location to see how it bears up in the field.
