    Weaver steadman, ronford baker, lambda, etc, any underslung head on a jib will get you exactly what you want. If you get a jimmy jib, or something fancier with a hot head, all the better.

    I'd like to point out that basically having the same camera out for the past 10 years hasn't seemed to hurt the Alexa too much.

    What I would really like to see happen is for red to make revisions and improvements instead of making a whole new camera. Let the thing mature. Incorporate things people need to use it on set more...

    I usually wear merrell jungle mocs. I did 20 hours of steadicam in two days a few weeks ago and my feet felt great. Some one posted the same question on a FB group for film folks and lots of people...

    Again, s35 glass works just fine, you are just at 4k, which is fine, and then the frame is the correct size for the lenses. And most s35 glass covers 5k at longer focal lengths it's just the wides...

    Most of my primes cover 5k. I bought a full frame 18mm to cover that end, and I bought a rehoused Ang. 28-70 to cover the leight weight zoom end of things. The super 35 size of the chip is 4k, so if...

    Mirrors are great, but they need to be glass, and glued to a really heavy piece of plywood. A 4x4 mirrior board certainly isn't any easier to deal with than say a 4k HMI and they are more delicate.

    The whole point of this is to not have to fuck with 4k. There is a ton of stuff that is never ever ever gonna be 4k. The client that wanted me to shoot 2k said, "our channel is 720p. Can you shoot...

    2k prores is awesome

    I had a client recently who wanted me to shoot 2k prores. I had never done that before, but I figured it out, and man, it's like having a whole new camera.

    Doing a shoot next week this way. Sure,...
