  1. Sorry my last two thoughts were a bit stream of consciousness. Streamlined for clarity: Other thoughts: Don't buy the super cheap stuff - that stuff just breaks and ends up costing more (both in being a waste of money, but also a waste of time when it breaks in use on set). Don't get addicted to buying gear. If you're not sure but feel a burning desire to get something, sleep on it a day or better yet a week. Factor in equipment insurance Buy what you need now - not what you think you might maybe need one day for that very unique scenario. I find camera grip accessories (a good grip, shoulder pad, ergo rig, top handle) to be very useful to me and something I use almost every shoot and which I can move from camera to camera since a lot of times I don't even shoot on my own camera The end goal is probably to not own anything ironically 😛
  2. with that budget off the top of my head go: cam - bmpcc 6k (or URSA Mini Pro if you can swing it); lenses - 25mm and 75mm dzo vezpid (add a 50 if you can swing it)... disclaimer - I haven't shot on these but have heard good things and the price point is crazy affordable; lighting - Nanlite 720 bi-color (or 300 or 500 if you can't afford 720 ) and a Softbox (or better yet a 6x6 or 8x8 butterfly frame...I like the chimera pro panels) ; nanlite 60b or pavotube; a good light meter - spectra cine maybe; audio - a used audio recorder h4n maybe and a good lav (others might have better suggestions.... I don't really worry about sound anymore so not up to date... I think audio stuff is relatively more cheap to rent though); tripod/head - a used miller ds20 fluid head and legs; misc- flags, diffusion (maybe a Matthews road rag kit for portability); use the rest on stands (Matthews digital combo or maxi steel... maybe a few cheaper aluminum ones, grip heads, gobo arms, Cardellini, etc. etc.), bags, batteries, misc. grip and cam accessories and a rock n roller cart to lug it all around. Looking back I wish I had 'bought once cried once', but I don't think I was really in the financial position to realistically do so. I'd say buy what you can afford and make good stuff and then you'll organically grow your kit too (and know what kit you personally need as your career progresses... everyones different and only experience can teach this to a certain extent). That said, don't buy the super cheap stuff - that stuff just breaks and ends up costing more (both in being a waste of money, but also a waste of time when it breaks in use on set). Also, don't get addicted to buying gear. If you're not sure but feel a burning desire to get something, sleep on it a day or better yet a week.

  3. Hi there, I'm curious what everyones preferred throw is when operating solo and having to pull your own focus on a follow focus in a documentary type setting? I'm asking because I'm prepping for a doc where things will be a bit unpredictable and trying to decide which gears and swing arm to use to get to an ideal 'general use' setup. For me, 1 turn on the follow focus knob (or 360 deg) can get a bit hard on the wrist on a long pull, and is sometimes hard to track on a fast follow... so I'm starting to lean towards less than a turn of the follow focus knob for close focus to infinite... maybe 270. Seems to me that cinema lenses with their 270 or 300 degree focus throws on the barrel, whilst ideal for a narrative setting with an experienced puller, actually sometimes have too much throw when operating and pulling focus solo (considering 300 degree on the barrel of a large-diameter/tooth lens usually equates to over a turn of the knob on the follow focus depending on gear and swing arm). This also got me to wondering on a large-scale narrative movie, is there a general throw focus pullers aim for generally? I guess it is dependent on the shot, but let's say for just a 'normal' shot with no extreme whips etc. would they generally map the entire focus movement from close to infinite to one turn of the knob on a wireless unit? How does this work with manual follow focus units? Correct me if I'm wrong, but like I mentioned above, on a manual follow focus, even on a 1:2 arm with a large tooth gear you're still getting probably a bit over a turn of the focus knob to get from close to infinite on most lenses (unless they are really small diameter). Thanks 🙂
  4. I'm selling this used Easyrig Cinema 3 with 5" extended arm (rated 17-24lbs). I've installed the new easyrig quick release to it, and it comes with the 3 extra ball studs as seen here - https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1410621-REG/easyrig_erig_ea033_q_quick_release_camera_hook.html I also had a new line installed when I installed the quick release, so functionally this unit is as new. Comes with a spare line, and the original Easyrig hook as well. I got this with the backpack style Easyrig bag instead, as I prefer carrying it that way personally, fits great. Asking $3000 USD or $4000CAD within North America + shipping. I am located in Vancouver, BC, but head to the U.S. often. I'd prefer to use transferwise if possible, but paypal works too potentially. Feel free to shoot me any questions, thanks!
  5. Looking to sell this like new Misfit Atom. I bought two a few months ago for a project, and only need one now. As you probably know, these are amazingly lightweight, well built, and functional. I am located in Vancouver, BC, but work often in the U.S., so can easily ship within North America. Asking $300 USD or $400 CAD plus shipping; I'll cover pp fees.
