    I just today received the Wooden Camera PL mount. It comes with a set of shims (and also 3 support posts that can presumably be used with a WC cage). Feels quite solid, and was recommended to me by...

    I own the 22" mini II, not the 34", so will comment here on the similarities.

    I love the quick set-up and breakdown that the rod design allows-- you'll never hesitate to get it out when you need...

    If speed is the primary concern, maybe next up you can invent a system to quick secure the fabric to the frame! (The elastic straps on the corners of fabrics for the Chimera 4x4 work pretty well. But...

    I'd tend to agree with Christoffer on this. Image quality can always improve in certain ways (global shutter perhaps being one of them), but we're in a pretty incredible place now with image quality...

    Very useful set, especially if you store these at home or don't always have a roomy production vehicle. And while it's not the cheapest track, the quality is really good.

    Hard for me to tell on this one-- the trailers for movies like this often can't really convey what's special about them. While I also don't love the look for its own sake, if it ultimately feels like...

    I just received my Komodo and am doing my own testing. For the kind of work you're talking about, you might also want to think about the ProRes recording modes-- they're a great option for times you...

    I use the 4x4 Chimera frame Bob references above. But agree that those clamps look really nice-- and perhaps are a little quicker and easier to connect to your support stands than the Chimera frame...

    Correct. If the LWS support is affixed to rods, and the front of the lens is attached to the threaded donuts, then the matte box can't move back and forth with the lens. In practice, it probably...

    I don't know of a donut that goes this small, so the most straightforward approach is likely to involve step-up rings.

    So does anyone have any experience filming in zero gravity, or reduced gravity? I'm trying to figure out the dynamics of filming on a parabolic flight, and tips would be very welcome.
