I've always wondered what it would be like to mount a longer lens like an 85-200mm on to a gimbal and get footage with it. I feel like a lot of video we see shot on a gimbal is from a wide angle lens, but in this video we see something a little more interesting.
My curiosity about mounting a telephoto lens to a gimbal came from a while ago when I saw that the Inspire could mount different lenses. Being so into drones, I really wanted to have that ability and create this new look from the sky. Once I ended up with my Inspire 2, I began to learn how to fly a 25mm and 45mm lens which both double in focal length because of the micro 4/3 sensor. After a good amount of practice flying, I was finally able to achieve the shots I wanted and have been using this for a lot of my work ever since.
The other day, I stumbled upon this video where Fritz Bacon was able to mount a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to his Ronin - S on his 5D mark IV. I thought this was pretty cool because for the past few months we have been thinking about ways to get a bigger lens on our gimbal. With the 70-200mm being so heavy, it does not seem like a lens that should be mounted but for the sake of look, I think this is a pretty killer combo if you can learn how to use it the right way.
