  1. Hi all, I wanted to ask to see what people are using on set as an on board color accurate monitors (7 inch or smaller). I find the SmallHD 702/502 to not be as accurate as I would like. Anyone have some recommendations? Looking forward to your thoughts :) Thank you!
  2. I hope I am posting this in the right section... I wanted to know if anyone is aware of insurance companies that will cover embargo countries or any of the countries which typically are exempt from world wide insurance coverage? I have searched around the web and have only been able to find Special Risk Life Insurance in wartime / conflict areas. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance!
  3. Thank you all for the responses, I'll definitely take all of this info consideration. Just to clarify, I should have been more specific that it'll be on a large lake. I'll only be out for approximately 6-8 hours. Thank you once again :)
  4. I was checking out that show actually and read the same thing. Something along the lines of they could have went with underwater housing rigs however they thought it was too bulky.
  5. Hi all, I am prepping for a documentary to shoot under some potentially rough conditions. It will take place on a 24 x 7 foot boat of a fishing trip in open water, the weather as I'm sure everyone is aware can change pretty quickly. I will be shooting on an Alexa Mini and a Fujinon Cabrio and am wondering if anyone has experience with some really top notch housings or weatherproofing gear. Would it be suggested that I take a underwater housing vs weather proof/sealed? I have looked at the bts of several shows but can't exactly determine the gear that is being used. Any suggesti
  6. Funny you mention that, I was going to start a thread regarding tripods. I have narrowed it down to 3 heads in the order of price: Oconnor 1030D --- $6,525.00 Sachtler DV 12SB ---- $3,375.00 Succed SC - V15 / 100RP -- $1,090.00 (From what I've been told, these are almost identical to the Sachtler at this point since their patent expired last year) Is it really justifiable to pay 3x or even 6x the price? I've heard some great things about all of these tripods...
  7. I think you guys are right, I just did a test at home from my balcony and the heat haze is gone. However, the tripod seems to be the problem as well. I rolled and stood still, away from the camera, and it seemed to be fine (aside from when gusts of wind would shake it) then I walked around the tripod without touching to test if my footsteps could cause the jitter and that seemed to be the culprit. Any small vibrations with this thing and it sends shockwaves apparently, guess I need a new tripod. Thank you for your help everyone! Much appreciated :)
  8. I'm pretty sure there was no vents below or in front of me (was on a balcony), and I also made sure to stand back and not hold the tripod once I hit record and released. The weird part of it is that I have a few other shots and they are all exhibiting the same problems. Would heat shimmer be possible since it was -15 degrees C outside?
  9. I just weighed the camera and it's 9.5 kg, would that cause the frame to shake like that on a totally static frame? Also, I thought it might be heat shimmer as well after seeing the footage, but I'm certain there was non visible to the naked eye... It almost looks like rolling shutter to some degree due to vibrations. Any more thoughts?
  10. Hey everyone, I'm currently working on a doc project and was shooting some shots of the city on a Alexa Mini + Fujinon Cabrio 19-90 on sticks (E-Image 7060H - with 8kg max payload) I am getting some really weird jittery / shaky footage. Here is an example: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_7y3KfocL2uSFZUaXhoaG5BUlU/view?usp=sharing There was no wind at all where I was standing and I was zoomed in @ 90mm... The tripod I'm using is definitely not recommended for this setup (it is an old one I own and didn't have time to rent one due to having to shoot these shots immediately
