    Why would you jam from the camera? Do it the easy way and jam all the Sync E's and Track E's from the...

    Use the back of the metal body of the matte box. Maybe even make an angled tab you can attach to the main body via velcro, too, and mirror the angle of the hood.

    The Flowtechs are fast, but don't overlook how SOLID they are. Very resistant to torsion/twisting/backlash when panning with high drag settings. I shoot a lot of sports and I've shot on them...

    The only real issue I've seen first hand from the Canon behind-the-lens variable ND adapter, because it's two polarizers, is getting "splotchy"/blocky patterns on some automotive glass, because of...

    We’ve gotten so used to Tentacles and they’re so ridiculously easy(and small and light), we run them even on single cam shoots with a recorder. And you can get two to three average days off of a...

    Obviously it’s not a made-up issue and according to most authoritative sources, it can happen to any camera with an SDI port, regardless if it’s 1.5, 3, 6 or 12G. But I don’t recall ever seeing or...

    Yes it will.

    Have you thought about something like the smallHD Cine 7 500TX, which is the same 7” monitor, but with a transmitter built in. Unfortunately, the Focus 5 version is HDMI only.

    WC plate won’t help. It’s simply a “self healing”/resettable fuse for the D-taps, instead of a normal disposable glass fuse like in most other plates.
