    And let’s not forget ENG lenses. While the servos are technically housed outside in the lens grip, the grip is essentially permanently mounted in place and with regular service, the servos perform...

    That looks like it's right up my alley. I remember when History Ch and Discovery and the like aired great stuff like this all of the time, before they decided to just do cheap "reality TV" instead.

    I've spent my entire career(over 22 years, now) running around with 25lb+ ENG cameras on my shoulder and if it's well balanced(like an ENG camera), it's not a big problem, generally. Honestly, ~25lb...

    I finished it a few days ago and overall I’d give it maybe a B/B-. It definitely got better a few episodes in. Some of the jumping back and forth in time can be a little confusing as is keeping...

    HDMI needs to die in the pro world and should never have been allowed in, to begin with IMO, but cost isn’t really an issue, nowadays. Perfect example: smallHD’s Focus line are the same price in SDI...

    I've brought up similar thoughts on other forums many times before. I started out back in the 90's on SD analog Betacam. What we have available now is insane compared to just a few decades ago, BUT...

    Never heard that. They're inexpensive $15 tungsten lamps available almost everywhere that carries lights(like Barbizon, B&H, Adorama, etc.).

    That’s scary when you see your cameras life flash before your eyes. But I’ve been running one of these on my ErgoCine Bell Rocker grip that I run on my F55 and C300 in conjunction with my Canon...

    I own three and have never really messed with the feature much, but you could try getting your hands on a VariCam, as they allow you to actually ramp the frame rate up and down live as you shoot. ...

    I’ve been shooting for over two decades and I’ve owned(own) a bunch of cameras, from my first Betacam back in the 90’s to my F55 now, but never a RED. They’ve never really been big on my radar and...

    Being an ENG guy at heart, I wanna say that’s not true, because I take care of my gear and always have, but I know too many guys who you just described to a ‘T’. I used to know a guy who would just...

    I wouldn't waste my money on a 75mm set-up. 100mm minimum. I've bought every head and set of legs brand new, over the last 22+ years, until a few weeks ago, when I picked-up a studio pampered head...

    The built-in VF’s on the Canon’s are a few steps too far. I hate them for two reasons: 1) Image is way too small/low quality and 2) the movement/adjustment is way too limited.

    If you don't mind running a separate battery on the VF itself, there's the Zacuto Graticle. On occasion, I have run it with batteries instead of the dummy batt-to-dtap cable that I usually use and...

    In a nutshell, that's how the Sony servo lenses that they marketed with the Fs7 cameras work. I've heard guys say that on a really fast or crash zoom, they've "outrun" the lenses ability to maintain...

    But it would still be a 35mm lens. That doesn’t change. It doesn’t all of a sudden become a “50mm lens”, because it’s going to give you the same AoV/FoV that a 50m would on a FF35 camera. Lenses...

    I've owned a set of Canon CN-E's for years and have always loved them(as well as my clients and other shooters). Sharp, clean, fast(20, 24, 35, 50 & 85, anyway), warm and make people look great. ...
