    Great work! Always look forward to really well shot documentaries that have an interesting story to tell.

    Since this is a gear forum I would love to see the sort of rigs you used to shoot! Always interesting to see how people rig up a camera for work in the field.

    Definitely very happy with 2D :)
    The macro-set up was a 1m alloy cheeseboard with macro-slide for coarse camera adjustment. Then I connected a bunch of lead-screw linear + rotation movers together which proportional controllers, some intense cold lights and finally a mechanised microscope stage. It allowed me to do tiny moves with very small subjects. 3 planes plus rotation. Lenses were some old Zeiss Lumix and an extraordinary Nikon 10x macro fixed focus that I found - it was F mount.
