  7. I just did a shoot like this a few months ago. I used this car mount inside the cab of the truck. http://www.filmtools.com/filmedweigca1.html I used a suction cup on the windshield and then clamped to the hand bar and the front seat. I mounted a battery powered HMI to the cheese plate with the camera.
  8. I am not a soundman, nor do I play one on TV. Can someone explain to me the Nordic Scale that is used on the 442N and how it differs from the standard 442. Thanks. Brian
  9. We bought the gear from Filmtools. It was a complete kit with 3 suction cups, a cheese plate, three or four short arms and grip heads. I have used this rig on everything from snow plows to motorcycles.
  10. I did this exact setup two weeks ago using a DVX-100. I used a suction cup on the windshield with a short arm to the cheese plate. I used a second suction cup with a longer arm coming in at an angle as a second point. Then I took another arm with a maffer clamp down to the frame of the seat. It was very solid and we got everyhting we needed. I might have some photos of the setup. If I find them, I will post them here. Good Luck Brian
  11. The squeak is gone, the track is shiney and everything smells lemony fresh. Thanks Mitch.
  12. I have a Panther Lightweight dolly with their old style track wheels. I just replaced the 14 year old Panther track with new Matthews track. On the new track, the wheels squeak. This did not happen on the Panther track. One of our guys remembers hearing about some product(like WD-40)you can spray on the track to eliminate the squeaks. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I probably should just replace the wheels, so if you have recomendations for wheels let me know. Thanks Brian
  13. I will be travelling to Geneva, Switzerland for a shoot in a few weeks and was wondering if anyone knows of a rental option for an SDX-900 NTSC. The project has already been started in the US and we have been shooting 30P. If there isn't an NTSC option available, does anyone have experience with the look of 25P vs. 30P? Any information would be helpful. Thanks. Brian

    LCD Teleprompter

    I am looking for recommendations for an LCD teleprompter for field use. I am looking for 15 or 17 inch that is capable of battery operation. It will be used primarily with an SDX-900. I appreciate any information. Brian
