  1. Hey Guys, Im after either a Canon 5d MK2 or a 7d. What would you guys reccommend i buy? The 7d shoots 24p full HD and 60p 720 but the 5d MK2 has the full 35mm sized sensor and I was planning on using a f1.2 lens with the camera. Thanks, Tom
  2. I too would like to know this. Has anyone tried bouncing light into Lee 272 (soft gold reflector)?
  3. Matt, About a year ago I was faced with the same problem, the tough decision of whether to get a fogger or hazer. After about a week of research I decided to go with the fogger. I chose this because it is possible to get the hazer effect with a fogger but it isn't possible to get a fogger look with a hazer. If you fan out the smoke, it should disperse pretty well, it is a little wispy but it gets the job done. Tom
  4. Hey Guys, I just bought a LanternLock from the internet. I was just wondering if it will work in Australia. It cost $200aud so it'd be a big waste if it didn't work. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom
  5. Thanks John, I went to a Cinematography lecture of yours earlier on in the year and I can recall you saying that they were one of your favorite lights. I don't think I'll be able to afford them though, I'll probably just end up borrowing them from School What are they mainly used for? I hired them one day for a Short I was making and found that they make a good hair light. Is there any other uses for them? Could guys please post photos. Thanks, Tom
  6. Hey Guys, Me again, with another of my imbecilic posts. This time I would like to know what lights you would reccommend buying. I am making a large amount of short films with some friends, we eill be mainly shooting on location. I have worked out that It will end up cheaper to actually BUY lights rather than rent them a million and a half times... I am thinking of getting a Redhead Kit (3 Redheads), A Blondie and a pole cat allong with a gel collection and maybe an Arri 150w Fresnel. Please keep in mind that my budget is very limited, so 18k HMI's and whatnot are out of the question. should I add or subtract any items? Any feedback would be appreciated. Cheers Tom.
  7. You learn something new every day. Thanks Matt.
  8. Mark, I shot in a cinema last month. You'd better check if they let you bring in external lights because they wouldn't let us bring in any AC powered lights. We had to use the cleaners lights and bounce the light around with a reflector. The motivation was completly ruined in the scene but the lighting really went with the mood of the scene. Have fun on the shoot, Tom. :D P.S. Here are some stills (Sorry about the image quality it was shot on a HV30)
  9. Cool thanks guys for your help.
  10. Wow, that seems pretty cool. How expensive is it exactly?
  11. Olivia, Kino Flo's arent generally designed to be dropped however it may be alright. When you return the light to your rental house tell the staff there and they should be able to fix it. :)
  12. Thanks for your advice JD, I'll check it out. :)
  13. Hi There. I am shooting in a hallway and would like to rig a redhead to an Autopole. I have seen it done before but I am still a little unsure as to how secure it is and what weight it can support. any information would be useful.
  14. Hey Guys, I'm shooting this weekend and I need a soft light source which would you recommend, A Kino Flo Diva Light 400 or a Lowel Rifa Light 88 (1k Softbox) . They both have their advantages and disadvantages. what are your suggestions? Cheers
