  1. Hi William, Yes it is. Cheers
  2. Hi Cory, I found the standard Sniper pan bracket has too much play or wobble and pushes the sensor array up too high from the lens, so I had a solid low profile piece made without the pan gearing. Also included in the kit is an original pan bracket with gearing. See photo attached. Cheers, Scott

    3d and Filters

    What issues have you had exactly? When you are rating the camera at 400ASA and shooting in full sun, filters are a must. The ND1.5's worked perfectly on the front of each lens, no dramas whatsoever.

    3d and Filters

    I've just finished a movie shooting with Qasar rigs running Red One's. We just attached a PSR sized filter tray with circular clap-on ring to the front of each lens. ez :)
  8. Hi Jamie, I did a job a few weeks back on Alexa recording log-C 444 to SRW-1. The deck we used had a LUT installed (I think it was a D-21 Rec709 LUT) that output an image very close to the Rec709 output on the Alexa. This was not perfect but gave us another output to use for Client monitors etc. instead of daisy-chaining all across the universe, which helped as this particular shoot was 90% hand-held. It wont be long before an Alexa Rec709 LUT is released for the SRW-1. I'm not exactly sure of the process for installing them onto the deck (something involving a Sony formatted memory stick into the side of the controller), but I know you can store up to four different LUT's on a SRW-1 device. However this LUT-applied output is only possible when recording 444 SQ/HQ. So when you drop down to 422 for overcranking, you will only get the Log-C image. Hope this helps.
  9. True, a fair assumption. But the 'white' clips are very mysterious. If anyone else has seen this, please let me know. Cheers

    Alexa teething

    The other day we had some dud clips appear with a data transfer from an SxS card. There were 4 clips in succession, all around 3 to 5 seconds in length with nothing but white frames. The clips before and after were all fine, and no footage was missing from what we shot. Also we were getting an irregular problem while using a BFD system powered from camera and using remote run. Occasionally the camera would cut by itself, after having been rolled by the hand unit. This happened maybe five times over three days. We never had this problem if the camera was rolled via camera body. This is the first time I've seen such issues with the Alexa after half a dozen or so jobs. Anyone else had similar problems or know anything about the mystery clips? :huh:
  11. Hey Guys, Anyone have a Cinetape laying around they would want to part with? Let me know ;)
  12. Hence why I used the term "perceived"... Shoot tests and see for yourself.
  13. Anyone selling a Cinetape system? Would love to hear from you. Cheers.
  14. Hi Mate, Your Lens Expert is not entirely correct. Ultra's have aspherical elements which give you a shallower depth of field and perceived sharper image. Also much more user friendly. Good luck.
