  1. Yer in a pickle here. In between a practical and fixture rules. Technically the cord would need to be hard or extra hard usage as it is now more of a lighting fixture, but even 18/3 SJO cord might not fit through the lamp's metal tubing. How are you going to mount this on set/location? There are Quick On or Snap on lamp cord connectors you can put on the end of the existing cord so that you'll have a 2 prong edison plug that can plug in to a dimmer.

  4. Balance is not the issue: The issue will be possibly bending the steel tubing if you go over the 10kg max weight at max extension. For a sliding boom like the 650 a bent extension will need to be replaced as it will not slide in to the other extension once it gets bent. Same as a bent riser on a stand. Menace arm set ups are great because there are no sliding extensions.
  5. We put about 5kg on the end of the Superbooms regularly and those are rated a little less in capacity. You'll be fine with the 650 Jr. boom. The counter weight that comes with the 650 boom will work good , no additional weight needed.
  6. It's not at the full extension though. This is a Jr Boom not a Mini Boom; the tubing is bigger and can support a sturdy child when not extended.
  7. would a narrow cheese plate work? https://modernstudio.com/collections/plates
  8. We carry the Scrim Jim kits in rental and they survive 🙂 In our rental stock we carry: 4x6 Cine kits 6x6 Cine Kits 8x8 Cine kits. I assume you would be getting this kit: https://www.fjwestcott.com/scrim-jim-cine-dp-kit I don't have anything good or bad to say regarding the Roadrags as we do not stock them
  9. Interesting. The Harry Box tech handbook states that all 12k and above are now PFC but this is Fourth Edition 2013 Edition. How old is the ballast? anyhoo- the "excess" power returning on the neutral matters because in a normal load if all phases are balanced then there should be no load on the neutral but w/o PFC things get weird and the neutral will see excess load and you need to factor in this extra load when sizing the cables and the generator. It still maters when using house power too. On 240v the excess power still exists. With a .7 PF 30% of the current does not cancel out. You'll notice on the spec sheet 12,000 watts Line Power 18,000 VA Nominal Current 72amps @ 250v So that ballast is a power hog since the PFC is so terrible or non existent according to Arri. looks like if it had a PFC of 0.97-0.98 it would be 55amps @240v Ref: Set Lighting Handbook Fourth Edition Harry Box
  10. Jason send me an e-mail. My world is strobes too. ed@screamingbroccoli.com I can send photos. I did a quick test comparing the 2k Tungsten Fresnel and the Aputure 600d. 600d LED: No Diffusion 10’ 160 ISO 1/350 at 2.8/9 2k Tungsten Fresnel : No Diffusion 10’ 160 ISO 1/350 at 2.8/6 600d LED: 6x poly silk @5’ 160 ISO 1/350 at 2.8/1 2k Tungsten Fresnel : 6x ploy silk @5' 160 ISO 1/350 at 2.8/6 We have the Aputure 600d and it is about the same as a 2k Tungsten fresnel.
  11. Try ɢɪʟʙᴇʀᴛ ɴᴀᴠᴀʀʀᴏGalaxyRS.com he might be able to help ya out on the repair/walk through.
  12. hey Adrian, This is what I got from my guru: Arri: High Speed Mode The High Speed mode generates flicker-free light for High Speed shootings. High Speed Mode has been tested up to 25.000 fps and down to 2° shutter angle with no flicker or roll bars. The intensity is fixed in High Speed mode. The only settings are 0% (black out) or 100% (full intensity). In High Speed mode the settings for low end mode, tungsten mode, effects and PWM frequencies are ignored.The operation modes CCT, HSI and GEL are available in High Speed Mode. When modifying a parameter the SkyPanel performs a short black-out when applying the new value. The operation modes SOURCE and RGBW are not available in High Speed Mode. To set a special control mode 1.Press the MENU button (10) to open the fixture menu. 2.Turn I/S, until „Light Control“ is selected. Press I/S to open the menu. 3.Turn I/S, until „Special Modes“ is selected. Press I/S to open the menu. 4.Select the special mode by turning I/S. Press I/S to confirm the setting. 5. Press MENU to close the menu. My dude, I think you really have to let your customer decide. My gut reaction is that the 360 is going to be way more stable than an HMI with a High Speed ballast as there is no arc dancing. If the customer doesn’t follow Arri’s directions to use High Speed mode… who knows.
  13. Looks like a spinning wheel gag. Cut out a round piece of wood and then mount the Small Aputures to the board. Spin the rig on an axle mounted in a c-stand.
  14. Now you can request powder coated parts on yer stands for identification.
