  1. Alan Gordon MARK V Director's Viewfinder. Comes with black leather case and attached neck cord. Also comes with wide angle lens adapter in nylon case. All of this is nuzzled into a carefully plucked yellow Pelican 1200. I bought this from the original owner many years ago. I used it about 10 times, and it's spent the last 7 years in a closet. I take excellent care of my things, so it's in excellent condition: clean glass, no faults, no chips, no breakage. Only problems are: missing lens cap (I never received it), previous owner's name has been scratched out and my name written on t
  2. Minolta Color Meter II + original case. Good to great cosmetic condition. Works fine, although probably needs to be calibrated. $275 OBO
  3. To massage both the reverse shot of the forward actor, and the shot of the building, I'd consider whether there are any lights on in or outside the building--an entry light or two, as well as rooms that may be lit inside. They could appear brighter than your moonlight, the color contrast is always nice, and you'll have some motivated light behind your forward actor when he turns, if you can compose the shot so that it is visible in the background. (Picture a lit window behind the actor on his far- or off-camera side.) This light does not need to "hit" the actor to adequately provide separat
  4. There was a brief mention in a recent AC article about using a hazer outside, but I can't remember which model or for which picture. Sorry. The image displayed was of a grove or meadow with a row of trees...something like that. I imagine it would necessitate the rigging of some very large rags overhead and just out of frame to prevent the haze from dissipating too quickly, although I seem to recall (or perhaps I'm making it up) that wetting the ground/grass will also help--but perhaps that only helps to sell the effect. It's early and I haven't had my coffee yet, forgive me. I'd c
  5. Unfortunately, not yet. I'm just now getting around to building my website. I hope to have it all complete by the end of the summer.
  6. Ram, I didn't use any 35 adapters on this one, just an HVX200 right out of the box. It's been 2 years, so I don't recall all of the details, sadly--I always want a dedicated note-taker, but it never seems to work out. :blink: All I can say now is that I'm pretty sure I went with the Cinelike gamma setting--whichever is flattest. I cranked the detail level down quite a bit, set Master Ped at -3, and pulled the color a little (except that last frame grab, for which I dialed in a little more saturation). No bump in gain. UltraCon 4, and underexposure. Sorry I can't be an
  7. Please do! Have fun. I think you'll like 7205.
  8. With the Low Contrast filters, you'll also get halation in the highlight areas. The Ultra Contrast filters, on the other hand, will evenly lower contrast over the entire frame without halation. I've used them before, but only for video (ultracon 4), and they do help. Of course, as others have already indicated, choosing your color palette (location, design, wardrobe) is extremely important. Here are some frames from my last short film, shot 2 years ago with an HVX200 and the Ultra Con 4, with deliberate underexposure. I was going for a specific look, but I think it's close to what y
  9. I agree that they are Paparazzis, and I agree with Adam's comment as well, having been there myself. You will be sorely disappointed with a readily-available, low-wattage strobe light. Especially if you are shooting daylight exteriors.
  10. I've got a few Altman par cans, very similar to the Chauvet, and I've got a few Mole Pars. I prefer the Moles for two reasons: they are very small (almost 1/3 the size), and you can rotate the fixture to position the beam without removing the globe. Very handy. I don't know if that is enough incentive for you to merit the significant price difference. However, if you're willing to wait, you can sometimes find the Moles on eBay. I bought 4 Mole Pars for about $35 each. --S
