A C-60? I have one; a really nice object rig 8-) Not exactly something you would want to
rent, since the shipping alone would cost you a ton, much less breakdown and setup. The
rig is 12 feet tall and you need additional headroom to set it up. It is a beast, to put it
mildly. Running it with computer control can get frustrating due to the outdated Kaidan
emCee software and controling a DSLR instead of a video camera in sync with it takes
some real fiddling around. I have been trying to get VRWorx to add applescript to their
application, which would make it much, much easier to do.

I have one of the older non-motorized versions of one of these. Much easier to transport
and set up! I also have a motorized turntable (MDT-19) that I usually use to automate at
least the horizontal rotations.
