  1. Hello,

    I am looking for some vintage tube video cameras for an upcoming project.  Ideally I am hoping to find some Ikegami HL-79's or Ikegami ITC-730.  I would be interested in other Tube Cameras from the 80's those just happen to be the models that I have the most experience with.  I am located in Los Angeles but if anyone knows of someone who might have one sitting in a garage some where please let me know.  Please feel free to email me davidedsall@gmail.com

  4. Hello,

    I am selling my Tiffen 6x6 ND Grad Set. SE 3,6,9, HE 3,6,9. I have had these filters about 6 months and they have spent the whole time in their filter case. The 6 SE and 3 SE have come out a handful of times. Hopefully this set can find a new home.

    Brand New $2688 plus tax.

    I'll take $50 off each filter.

    $2400 total for the set.

    I'm located in Los Angeles, if a local pick up is available that would be ideal. But I am willing to ship.

    Cash or paypal.

  6. We tried mounting 19mm rods on the f23 using the arri bp6 bridgeplate and an adapter plate (that came from somewhere) and the rods are way off center. What kind of plate do we need for this?
