  1. Low mileage... maybe less than 1200hrs. I will be shooting with it this weekend and can confirm tomorrow. $30K or best offer serious inquiries only please.
  2. May not be on all models... just like the DP7 Pro OLED also cross converts HDMI to SDI and vice versa We did that also... and by eye I was nearly 98% on the mark with a perfect match. Two actors open one refrigerator in one area of the store and close same model door but in a different location.
  3. POWER WINDOWS!!!! Thanks James, I was racking my head around that technique they would do in telecine, something to the effect of Gaussian Blur in Photoshop. But not really seeing it on these. Not Beta... ALL of those videos where film... most of them 16mm which is why you get the deeper depth of field look. Mostly all videos then where shot with standard primes and super speeds where the top choice. S4's were reserved for the big boys and 35mm jobs. Still many where on the 10:1 canon cinema zoom. Chocolate and Tobacco filters where ALWAYS in the bag. White & Black ProMist made its rounds as well as Grads all over the place as clearly seen. Not vasaline in Brown Sugar, swing and tilt lenses mad a peek in videos also... this is what you got going on here as well as flash frames... flash frames we would just cut the camera off and restart the camera. Many of the good directors could do it in a good sync area of the playback track for an effect look that would hit during certain rifts of the song. film speeds, we carried 100T, 200T & 500T. 800T was just hitting the market and was a bit pricier. Also, 50D & 250D Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I was a camera loader and 2nd AC during the heyday of music videos!
  4. 435 is a great camera for steadicam, but you should get the vertical 400' steadicam mags that will give minimal weight shifting during the shot. In terms of handheld, its a bit front heavy but not too bad... again, get the 400' mags for that work also.
  5. Alexa XT available for rentals

  6. SmallHD DP7 Pro OLED does it overly and frame grabs. I know this because I was going ballistic that my brand new monitor had ghosting frame lines from camera prep... then later in the next day another ghosting of a previous shot was there. It turned out that I had put the monitor into overlay mode and had taken a screen grab with black screen showing only frame lines and then a frame grab of a previous set. I was REALLY glad to find out it wasn't a ghosting problem. I used the Alexa feature on that shoot to setup a transition shot, it worked well, but I did not have time to figure out the output to external monitors
  7. Reg, You should be fine, I'm not sure about the ghosting issues stated. But if you have a concern, call Frank at CPT in Atlanta, Wolfgang Rossell invented the T-Rex and was the prior owner of CPT. http://www.c-p-t.net/specialty/specialty.html -Alfeo
  8. reminds me of an unprocessed RAW or LOG C footage that was not color corrected
  9. Absolutely not CGI... Electrode stimulation has been around for decades. I even tested a friends device way back around 1987 and just trying to find these clips, I'm discovering that the technology has mainstreamed to the Brazilian Ass sculpting! But really, place your finger on the side of your eye, just about where he places his (i'm assuming bluetooth) wireless electrode sync capacitors and blink your eyes. Yep, that is most likely the best place to induce blinking. The cross eyed method is too taking and no one could ever sit through an entire feature, let alone a James Cameron 3D feature without injury. Now would I prefer Francois way... NO! Not unless you like looking like you've been toe to toe with Joe Louis (reference electrode ass video on face) :blink: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmBYwTiGzXY&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xNBesE0yoaU&feature=related
  10. Pat, Thanks... that's pretty impressive, I have read many of instances where the 4x4 was a life saver as in time and efficiency in hard to shoot locations such as Grand Central Station. Any change on getting one out to Atlanta for a demo/workshop?
  11. sorry Jeremy... hadn't been on the boards for a while.... no, this is not a common practice... the photo was during NAB and I had a friend coming bring a bunch of anaglyph glasses from a screening of a project I had shot to the Tiffen/Steadicam booth which I was helping show the rigs. Normal is to look at a single eye or and overlay of both eyes which takes a bit to get use to as far as your bg.
