  1. Ya we have that capability was just curious if a hand squeezer would work as well.Sounds like it won't. Thanks Phil
  2. Hi We have a number of Led Panels that all have built in dimmers. We are rigging them into a grid thats 12 feet above our heads so we wanted to control/dim them from a lighting board and /or with some hand squeezers. The plan is to place the built in dimmers that are on the lights at 100% and then dim remotely from the ground.Any reason why this would not work. Was curious if they will flicker or possibly damage the panels in any way? Thanks guys.

  4. 1200.00 dollars more and I already have the Samurais not a great solution.Plus I like the wieght and size of the Samurai No fan either quieter and less power consumption.
  5. Care to elaborate?? I hope it involves a method to roll remotley with a LANC line so you do not have to have tape in camera. I know we can roll from the unit its self but thats not practical when handheld. My understanding with the 2 lanc ports is currently you need 2 cables to "complete the circuit" One is the lanc line with a remote roll button that goes into the Samurai in lanc and then a second one that goes from the samurai out lanc to your lens. I am not sure if Cannon EFP lenses are compatible with this set up? IT sems like they should have made this possible with just one cable with a remote button on the Lanc In????? I like the unit but this is one area that I am still not happy about. Remote rolling with no tape in camera! Thanks Bob will await the firmware upgrade.
  6. Hi we are shooting a multi camera series with Pansonic HDX 900s .Our producer does not want to record to tape so hence the Samurais. So we want to record only on the Samurais but have a question about jam syncing our time code so all three samurais have the same timecode. I know we can jam sync the cameras and then send that time code to the Samurai. My question is if the cameras are on free run can we still stop/start the Samarai or will the running time code from the camera trigger it to always want to record???? IN other words we cant stop the recording on the Samurai??? Is that a true statement?? I read on line that the new firmware now allows the Samurai to be triggered with "SDI recording flags" which is independent of timecode? If that is the case I assume that in order to use that the camera will need a tape in it which we are trying to avoid as we will end up with hundreds of shot tapes we do not need. I guess in a nutshell my simple question is can we jam sync 3 of the Samurai units with out having to record on tape in our HDX 900s.

    HDX 900

    Hi anyone out there have any leads to web sites that offer set up looks for the panasonic HDX 900. They had a great one for the SDX I have seen "Ospreys" but wanted to know if there were others out there. I have a few of my own and some others but am always looking for new looks. TIA Scott
  11. Hi any one who has any experience with shooting 3D with the HDX or other HD video with either a beamsplitter or a side by side rig. I would like to find out about a few things.We are shooting a multi camera concert and wanted to know some of the limitations. Example stop loss if any? Rolling "on air focus"? Distance to subject from camera?.I understand that there are limitations depending on the set up or which of the two rigs you are using? Basic set up time and learning curve to get comfortable with it? There will also be a jib and I wanted to know if it will have to be modified for mounting and what its limitations might be?? If any of you have experience or have dabbled with this pass on your thoughts.Thank you Scott
  12. Thanks Rob for the info. Was not a double post but a reply to the cheap leko reference(:
  13. Three dollars for a Leko Light is that a typo that seems super cheap to me??
