  1. Congrats Jarin! That's incredible! I've still got another two weeks to wait till I get to see an "advance" screening of it down here in Oz.
  2. That looks like a horribly awkward and limiting way to rig it. 😕 If you set on having it mounted to the top of the handle like that, I'd suggest you look into something like this: https://www.smallrig.com/smallrig-swivel-and-tilt-monitor-mount-with-arri-locating-pins-bse2348.html Which will at least give you the ability to tilt and swivel the EVF towherevers easiest for you to view it.
  3. Hi guys, I'm using the Arri UMC-3a for the first time on an upcoming shoot, and I've trawled through Arri's configuration overviews but find them pretty confusing where power cables are concerned. What cable connection does the UMC-3a use for power? Is it a standard Arri RS? Is it the "PSC" connector? We want to power it via DTAP. Cheers, Mark
  4. All the current cameras can get close these days. But it generally requires developing certain recipes in your grading. I'm yet to encounter anything that make it as easy as Arri Alev III sensor though.
  5. Hi guys, Putting my maxed-out Mac Pro 5,1 up for sale: Specs: - 12-Core 3.46 GHz Intel Xeon - 64 GB 1333 MHz DDR3 - MacVidCards Flashed NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X 12GB - Sonnet 4x USB3 PCI Card - Sonnet Tempo dual SSD PCI Card - 512GB Samsung 850 Pro SSD Bootdrive - 1TB Samsung 850 Pro SSD RAID (900MB/s) Geekbench 5.0.4 Scores: - Single-Core: 657 - Multi-Core: 6179 - Metal Score: 35840 - OpenCL Score: 41816 As you can see by the benchmark numbers, she's a beast, incredibly stable, and gives me smooth 25fps real-time playback of 4k 16-bit Linear Sony Raw footage (which is seriously hefty material) in Davinci Resolve. And flies through edits in FCPX. I've put three 512GB Samsung 850 Pro SSDs inside, one for a fast boot drive (to hold the OS and all Applications) and the other two in a RAID via a Sonnet Tempo Dual SSD PCI Card, which gives 829MB/s Write and 997MB/s Read times, and allows for seamless playback of 4k Prores and Cinema DNG Raw up to 60fps, and Uncompressed 4k 4:2:2 streams up to 30fps. There's also a four port Sonnet USB3 PCI card for high-speed data transfers. The Mac Video Cards Flashed 12GB Nvidia Titan X is the highest performing CUDA-enabled GPU that you can use with the 5,1 Mac Pros. It work beautifully, gives you access to the Mac Boot Screen, and it also allows for OpenCL and Metal-based processing (which gives you the most versatility possible for software rendering options). Located in Melbourne, Australia, but happy to ship worldwide. If you have any questions or would like a shipping quote, feel free to get in touch. $2,250 USD / $3,200 AUD + Shipping Cheers, Mark
  6. **TEMPORARY PRICE DROP** The primes I'm looking to replace this with are currently on sale till the 29th of December. So I'm dropping the price to $12,500 USD + shipping for the next five days.
  7. I think it's a terrible idea. Doable? Sure, I've humped heavier combos before. But as Miguel points out, it's a really unruly sized combo. Get some primes, or at least smaller zooms, for times you need it on the shoulder. The Canon 17-120mm, Fuji 20-120, and Zeiss 21-100mm are all much more handheld-friendly options in the same range. Albeit with more modern looks to them.
  8. Hi guys, I'm after a proper EVF mounting system. No fuss, no wiggle, no slipping. And I'm wondering if anyone's used the Wooden Camera Air EVF system, and can comment on how well it performs? I want a proper EVF solution that can easily move from a shoulder-mount position (at the front of the camera), to a tripod position at the rear of the camera (using a quickly exchangable extension arm). Wooden Camera seem to be the only crowd that I can find (other than Arri) who are making a proper EVF system like this. So it'd be great to hear feedback (if anyone has any), or if anyone knows of comparably robust and easy-to-use systems from other manufacturers, I'd love to hear about them. Cheers, Mark
  9. Molebeams or Xenons I'd imagine.
  10. Selling two Arri CLM-4 Basic Motor Sets, very lightly used, so they’re in mint condition. Really pristine. These are THE motors for any Arri Alexa with the Plus module, and work beautifully with the UMC-3A, UMC-4 and SMC-1 motor controllers. The perfect blend of high torque, good size and silky smooth pulls. $1,890 USD / €1700 Euro / $2,760 AUD for each set + shipping Located in Melbourne, Australia but happy to ship worldwide (sales in Australia will have to add GST). Feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Cheers, Mark
  11. Price drop. $750 for the batteries + charger without the pelican case.
  12. **Sold** Thanks for looking.
  13. Fascinating. Could you PM me his details?
