Hi Christian, I really love your work. This for me is a very interesting thread and has given me a lot of information. I am new to the whole Red camera set up having shot mainly on Sony F3 and DSLRs before, but have just got a Scarlet( by the way I am picking up the new LED viewfinder on Friday so I will post on what I think of it). I am about to start a project on Buzzards and I am intending to use my Canon 500 f4, but I am really unsure of how to mount the camera and lens in the best way using the Scarlet ........ help! You can check out my stills etc on http://www.stevehoskins.co.uk/ All the best Steve
My name is Brian Hockenstein and I am a local photographer/filmmaker living in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada for the past 12 years. I've been eeking out a small living for that time shooting photos and video, and editing, mostly locally, mostly action-sport related. I have recently begun to take a serious interest in filming Natural History & Wildlife subjects and hope to make this a major part of my work in the near future. Only problem is, I am not quite sure how to break into it, as I am not particularly familiar with that industry. In the meantime, I spend most of my free time filming nature and wildlife as much as I can.
Ideally I'd love to be a freelance Natural History cinematographer, shooting for others productions, locally and beyond but again, I have zero idea where to start and any advice would be more than appreciate.
This is a little rough edit of some black bear shots I scored last sunday:
as well as my cinematography reel:
Just wanted to share a frame grab from a doc I did some work for. Epic, Canon L 100mm Macro + extensions. Love the Camera & love the lens.
No one has any advice to offer? Was looking forward to hearing from some top shooters in the field.
Hi Brian, nice to see your work, you have some nice shots. I don't know about being a top shooter, but I do keep busy here in Canada, and have shot my own series for Animal Planet, discovery, Nat Geo, and Oasis HD.
If you want, send me an email at michael at serengetifilms dot com I would be happy to share what I know. I used to live in B.C. and miss having the wildness in my back yard.
I have been too busy to post anything recently, but thought I would showcase some images from a recent trip to Africa last month. Weather was not great, the sun barely came out. But dam nice to finally have an epic with me. I'm heading back in a few week and expect some great wildlife.
Hi Guys, I just recently purchased a Sigma 300-600mm and I'm investigating lens support options for mounting the lens on my Epic.
Has anyone used this lens on an Epic / Scarlet and if so, would you be willing to share your lens support solutions?
If it were me I'd use 19mm rods, either with a dovetail if on a big tripod head http://www.x.com/bridgeplate-19mm or something like this http://www.creativevideo.co.uk/index...ocas_0480-0300 which is just a small plate that you screw your Sachtler wedge or whatever onto.
I personally feel that 19mm rods are much better for long lenses and they're not that heavy.
