Will a Wiral cable system hold a Nikon D800?

4 months 4 weeks ago #675904 by Toby J
Would you trust this single cable system to hold your D800 with 24-70mm?  Or better to go with dual cable system like the one Syrp has?  I need something to cover about 60m.  Wiral as I see it has a 100m line or 50m option.

Honestly that would be a much larger camera than I would put on that.  Agree, go with a smaller camera for that purpose.

I wouldn't trust it.

Why so serious?

Those things look fun, but I would be nervous about my camera hitting something.

The problem with heavier cameras on something like this is that if you are going with long runs, by the time you reach the center, the weight would have pulled the camera down 10-12" easily.  That will noticeable.

Honestly speaking, I wouldn't put anything but an action camera on that.  If it had 2 cables, ok.  But just one, if something were to happen, your camera is on the ground.

I've seen some good video's shot on one of these.  Impressive, but not something I would trust with heavier cameras.  Smaller yes, all day long.

One thing you need to keep in mind is on this sort of cable system, there will be a lot of camera shake which unless you have a crazy good IBIS system in the works, the footage will be unusable.
