    I'd call who ever is your favorite gaffer and buy them a beer to help you out, but it's pretty straight forward. Hubbel makes good plugs, just make sure it's rated for the amps, and you are good.

    It's pretty simple really. Step one - design something for longevity. Don't use components that have one supplier and are going to vanish in a couple of cycles. Or design more sub assemblies so you...

    Looks like a twist lock for a honda genny. If you are mostly going to plug it into a wall, just put an edison plug on it. Keep the plug it came with and make a pig tail to edison at the female end,...

    Absolutely the wrong camera for this. Not saying it couldn't be done, but I would take something smaller, something with a smaller chip, something with better battery life, zoom lenses. Honestly,...

    Those lenses certainly don't have even field illumination. Point a widish one at a white wall evenly lit, pull up the wave form. You will see a bell curve.

    Ah. Yeah. That's a bit of a problem. You could use a 4x5.6 pola and rotate the matte box. Thats what we did back in olden times with a 4x4 clip on on super speeds on a BL on steadicam. Or depending...

    If one were to be into old weird filters, one might search ebay for 138mm filters as nobody uses them anymore. Then one could have sets of say, antique suede, black nets, white nets, etc, at very...

    High frame rates generally look like ass. Show scan was an attempt at HFR (60fps) and it never took off. I can't think of anything since the hobbit that was shot HFR as it is universally despised....

    Yeah, unless you got it for like $10, it's probably cheaper to go buy a Tilta. Clip on MBs usually dont work so hot with still lenses. They aren't up to the weight clamped on front. Probably better...

    Thats a clip on matte box right? do you mean step down rings so it will clamp on to non standard lenses? which sizes do you have? you can probably find somebody to make you new ones out of delrin.

    I'm 99% sure it will. It's been a while since I've used a dragon, but I definately remember sound coming over SDI to video village and having to turn the monitors down.

    Thanks. The taking lens is just a standard 210mm russian 8x10 lens. I went through every ground glass out there and landed on this exotic film transfer screen which I replaced the GG with.

    6 seemed like enough to do just about anything, and you can make a pretty big single soft source with 6 18"x24" lights.
