  1. Ryan, when you say you compared the inverse square, are you saying you measured the same falloff with both sources? As in, you took a measurement, x=distance from the 216 frame, then doubled that distance and it was 1/4 of the brightness?
  2. I'd try opening a clip in resolve, or FCPX or something else. see if it's a Premiere thing, or in the clip. (maybe you did that already) But it's not something I remember seeing personally.
  3. Try exporting a clip, or frame. Is it still there? Premiere does dumb stuff to the color and gamma.
  4. Is this a screenshot from Premiere? Or is it a exported still?
  5. Hi Phil, I like Kits too. Generally what I'll be carrying is handheld monitors with 3stud mounts on the back for batteries. Camera accessories that usually all go out together. Naturally every job isn't the same but they're usually close enough. What I used to have was the Portabrace Car2 bags (semi rigid) for most things, and Pelican hard cases with padded dividers for batteries and chargers. I usually fit around 6 blueshapes, and 1x 4bank charger in an im2500 carryon size case. (not for flight, that's just the size) I love that custom case. Makes me wonder if Lmount would work for me now that I need to kinda start over. hah... *whimper*
  6. Hi everyone, I recently have a unique opportunity to replace most of my kit after 15 years or so of building it up. 😐 Over that time I ended up with different cases and bags to protect things in and out of regular production. Now that I have to repurchase stuff I'm interested in what people are doing for every day use. Most of the time the gear is in my house, then in the Sprinter, so I've usually gone with semi rigid bags instead of pelican cases because of the big waste of space with hard cases. When I fly, or someone rents something, I put it in hard cases. How do you carry the following: Handheld monitors (ready to go, with wireless) matte box and filters like VIV or Obox Wireless Follow focus like WCU4 or Bartech Misc cables? Primes lenses like Sigma FF, and Canon Cine zooms like 24-105mm etc. Batteries? I hate the giant cases to carry 4 batteries, how do you carry 8-10 plus a charger? Would love photos if you have them. I liked the system that I had, and will just do that again if needed. But I'd love to see what you guys are doing.
  7. Yeah! Funny you bring it up, it was after hiring Luke, and using his Skypanels that I bought my own S60 (he's in CA, I'm in TN) Then I saw his video on the J16 and it made me more interested.
  8. Good points. As for rentals, most of the time it will be with me. Only occasionally do I send it out with clients when I'm not with them. I've used the M18 for years and it's been great. But it was just a solid 1.2/1.8k light. nothing special. I've rented the Joker1600 a few times and it seems great too. Slightly more versatile, but that might be a placebo. One of the reasons I liked the joker was because of it's size. I have a sprinter, and it seems to pack better in the sprinter. Is a 1600 too big (hot) for a jem ball? or Leko?
  9. Just wondering what your opinion has been between those two lights. Easy to use, durability, usability? I'm asking as a purchase, not a rental. I have my own opinion about them after using them both, but I'm looking for others. Thanks!
  10. Thanks everyone for the advice. I'll check out these things and see what I can find.
  11. Hi guys, I'm looking for some super cheap glass. Something in the 35 to 50mm range. I see some stuff on eBay from the Ukraine for pretty cheap, but it's 80 or 135mm. Anyone have thoughts on some cheap glass sources? I realize it's going to be rough glass, but that's ok for what I need it for. Thanks!
  12. I'm looking for a used, but in good working condition, set of tripod legs. I have a 1030s head already. Sachtler or Oconnor would be at the top of the list, but I'm open. If you have some that you'd like to sell, PM me here (or better yet, email me) Be sure to include your asking price with best guess on shipping if you can. I'm in TN Zip 37363 Thanks! Bryan
  13. Well Sanjay, that's because you are a nice person. =)
  14. My normal grip just brings me what I need. I don't ever have to specify. But when I working with a new guy I use 1st, 2nd, top. And if it's a student, I just ask him to go get Tad. =)
  15. Back when I tinted windows for money, heating and curving film was a pain. And took a while. Sometimes we took the window out, if it was easy. (Jeep cherokee) Other times we... brb doorbell.
