  1. Is $1,500 your absolute maximum? It may be hard to find one for under $1,500 when you take into account not only the price of the camera itself, but shipping to Italy. If you'd be willing to curve that price just a bit, I'd say it'd be worth it. Here's two of them that I found on eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/330760069095?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Arriflex-SRii-SR2-super-16mm-camera-color-tap-speed-control-nightglow-etc-/330755620750?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4d02923f8e Of course, one of the two has a reserve, and it's unlikely that the seller will accept something so much lower than the asking price of $4,000 USD, but I'd say it's at least worth a go if you're really after it. And as for the other package, it's more than likely that the bidding price is going to far exceed where it's currently at, so it may not be for you. Either way, good luck with your future endeavours, - Jordan
  2. The question is not why are people so obsessed with viewing things on a screen. That's not the question at all. The question is: why are some people so obsessed with ushering in this "new era" of totally unnecessary technology (considering the technology we currently have is perfectly satisfactory). And I will say, it is an interesting concept. But is it really practical? Look at the Virtual Boy for example. It was built around the same idea of "head-mounted display helmet". Not to say that the Virtual Boy was a total failure, but it was exactly what something like VS would be, unnecessary. Movies were simply made for screens, and there really aren't any truly damning flaws with screens. And as Chris mentioned above, movies shown on screens are still popular for a reason.
  3. Don't attempt to create a feature simply because you obtained 10,000 feet of stock for a remarkably good deal. There's much more to a film than that. I agree with what the previous posts have stated; keep that film in a safe place for a while and develop a nice, clean-cut script. Above all, don't rush things. Take as long as you need to develop the story. Then, once that's all said and done, you begin the filming phase. It will be a great experience. Usually difficult, but always rewarding. Best luck to you. I hope you make a wise decision. - J
  4. Looks very useful. I think I'll be purchasing one of these soon. Thanks for sharing the information. - J
  5. Looks quite nice... certainly an interesting video too.
  6. Sometimes it's not about you finding inspiration, it's about inspiration finding you. Good things come to those who wait. It might sound like I'm just spewing babble, but believe me, what I said is true.
  7. Yeah, that's what I thought as well. That was a part of the message that I sent the guy. And as Mike mentioned above, XL-H1s(s) are black. I suppose I'll just have to wait to hear back from the guy as the picture on the listing might not even be accurate.
  8. Well, I've been looking to purchase a new camera for a while now. I turned my eye toward the Canon XL-H1S. I found a listing on ebay, but the picture on the listing confuses me. I already asked the seller but I have not yet received an answer. I think that the picture looks more like an XL2 than a XL-H1S. Can you folks give me your opinions on what the camera in question appears to be? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180685509300&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
