  1. A great 1080p cinema camera with PL lens mount and lots of great features. Listed on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/222065320662 Starting bid: $1,300 Buy Now: $1,800 I've shot numerous broadcast television commercials with this camera that aired both internationally and nationally, as well as theatrically. I've posted some images from a few shoots that had no additional lighting so you can see the quality. It has truly been a asset for my career and hope it can be a good asset for whatever needs you may have. The reason I'm listing it at a fairly low price is it has been very well used and shows plenty of signs of wear. The image is still great and I most recently used it last month as a second camera on a fashion web series for Target. My main purpose for selling it is I don't use it much anymore (Have a Sony PMW-F5 now). Included: Sony PMW-F3 Camera 2 Sony Batteries (BP-U60 & BP-U30) 1 Battery Charger 1 32 Gb SxS Memory Card. S-log firmware upgrade (already installed w/ original cost $900) 1 Stereo mic (came with the camera) 1 Microphone mount Camera Specs: With PL Mount Adapter 35mm Cine Lens Compatibility 1920 x 1080 HD, Native 23.98p & 24PsF MPEG-2 Long GOP 1080/720, Interlace/Progressive Modes S-Log Gamma/LUT Workflow 12.5-Stop Dynamic Range Dual-Link RGB 4:4:4 HD-SDI Output Genlock, Timecode (2) SxS Memory Card Slots
  2. Cooke Varotal 20-100mm T3.1/ PL mount Zoom lens for 35mm motion picture format. Serial No. 787404 The lens has a re-polished front element, new cam-followers, and new rollers & bearings (focus & zoom). It has only been used twice (on two-day shoots) since this work was done. I purchased the lens through Serious Gear Company in Seattle for $5,878. Kit includes: Clamp ring support 15mm lens bridge pair 15x440mm stainless steel support rods fitted transport case. I have it listed for sale on Ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/222065415693 Starting bid: $4,000 Buy Now: $5,400 ABOUT THE LENS Lens designer Gordon H. Cook designed the 35mm Cooke 20-100mm, T3.1 Varotal zoom lens, released in 1971. It was the first high quality zoom designed for professional motion picture photography that incorporated a totally new design concept that has remained the basis for all Cooke zoom lenses subsequently produced. It was produced through the late 1980s. The lens was made with a sealed front focus unit and fixed front element that eliminated the risk of dirt and moisture being drawn into the lens and allowed for easy fitting of matte boxes and filter holders onto the front. The lens was enhanced with anti-reflective wide-band Varomag high performance coatings. This advanced technology achieved new standards in shadowed area definition, light transmission and durability, in addition to giving ghost and flare-free characteristics. Gordon H. Cook received the 1988 Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Gordon E. Sawyer Award for this and other technological advancements during his career as an optical designer.
  3. I've just been asked by a client to use footage I shot in a TV commercial for usage on regional TV in the NYC area as well as on TV in Greece and in public "outdoor" displays and they're asking for my usage rates. Unfortunately, I don't know what to charge (I've only ever had footage used for web and non-broadcast media). Does anyone here have experience with this and have recommendations on what "standard" usage rates for this would be? They're using about 20 sec of footage and it's for a major department store. Thanks so much for any advice you may have.
