    To me, adding all this “stuff” just kind of defeats the purpose of the small and lightweight systems(because it doesn’t take much before they become unwieldy and too heavy for all but the very...

    Thanks.

    While the smallHD monitor control isn't all it's cracked up to be, the app is pretty darn cool. Me and my friend were both able to access, see and control his camera simultaneously from each of our...

    My .02... The camera control isn't quite ready for prime time. Using a friends on a shoot recently, it was more of a hassle than anything. It's a process for the monitor and camera to connect to...

    Pretty sure you can’t... Did a multi-cam shoot with a friend last week and two of the cams were their Gemini and Komodo. It was just a “normal” SDI cable on the Komodo and we were shooting 4K and...

    The Outrigger handle isn't that great. I shot with a friends all day on a multi-cam shoot we did together last week and I didn't like it. It's too far away from the body, too skinny(despite the...

    The first thing that went through my head when I read this was “What?”. So I had to look it up. The cam has a one-year warranty and it’s just cheaper to buy the extended warranty within the first...

    Call Porta-Brace. They used to make insulated shoulder cases for ENG cameras for extreme cold weather shooting and still make them for current cameras. They also do custom designs, as well, if they...

    Here's the real question: Are most consumer printers going to be able to print it sharp enough/high enough rez on normal printer paper to be truly useful? But maybe some of the large format...

    As someone that has spent a large portion of their career over the last almost 2 1/2 decades doing "doc style" shooting(sports/news/follow/features), these little 3x style zooms don't seem very...

    Canon 17-120 and call it a day. It's THE workhorse s35 lens for this type of work(ENG/Doc). Or if you don't need it as wide on the back-end, the Canon 25-250. A friend demo'd it recently and said...

    This may get some snickers and laughs, but don’t forget that the first season of Altered Carbon used Canon CN-E primes and Cooke S4/S5’s on the Alexa 65. I only bring this up because Phil mentioned...

    Yes. I love wide angle lenses, but not everything needs to be shot with one. Or put another way, you don't need to shoot with one all the time.

    I have a friend with one, but he's still waiting...

    Bad song and dancing aside, the image looked really good. Continues to show how much the grade plays a roll in and how important it is to the final look and feel of the footage.

    Was there a massive earthquake? Or is this “new” geography. Last time I checked, the UK was still in Europe. I even checked with Google, just to be sure nothing happened overnight and yep, the UK...

    I completely disagree. Europe is a continent and EU is the ‘European Union’- a political and economic union of member states/countries.

    To keep the overall weight of the gimbal/camera package down so you don't have to support it with your arms, you could get pretty much any "brick" battery(gold mount/v-mount) that has a power tap...

    Yep. There is a reason that pretty much every single camera shooting live, broadcast sports, from the "handhelds" up to the bodies with 100x+ box lenses are sitting on Vinten heads. Plus most of...

    I've had good luck with the Aja U-TAP when I've needed to send my F55 through Zoom. Facebook Live and YouTube Live are both also listed as compatible. They have SDI and HDMI versions. It's pretty...

    For $2K, I’d be hitting eBay and getting a Vinten Vision 100. And it’ll probably come with a set of stix.

    I was surprised that the 552 wasn't dropped right after the 6 series came out. Much less still...

    Good job, brother.

    I can remember shooting a handful of super short Lego animations in the 80's when I was a kid with a consumer camcorder that had stop-motion recording capability. I don't think...

    Check out Rand's post on the main Komodo thread, about the micro A/B Gold Mounts and bracket. That may keep it small and light enough to work. Although I'm not sure how long you'd want to carry it...
