  1. Hi all, I was wondering whether there are front box mount made for lower end tripod heads (instead of the usual OConnor, etc)? I understand this more then likely doesn't exist due to the weight capacity of the heads, however thought it would be worth asking. Thanks.
  2. Definitely. This is just an item of gear I own that I also listed, but would never want to step on anybodies toes - particularly the DP's.
  3. Hey Greg, Thanks for the advice. That being the case, any suggestions on anything else I need..? Jr.
  4. Hi all, I am in the middle making a few purchases for my AC kit and was wanting some tips/advice on anything I may not have, or alternative suggestions.

  5. Hi Stefan, Is this what you were referring to? Link: http://www.videoguys.com.au/Shop/p/24325/sobrante-tabletop-slate-sob-tts.html?cat=191
  6. Hi, I'm wanting to know, whats the cooling down period for HMI before it's safe to move it? Suggestions? Thanks
  7. Hey Peter, This may be of help. Link: http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showtopic=62643&do=findComment&comment=404398 Unfortunately, I live in Sydney, so any additional input would be rendered useless.
  8. I did a comparison between my 4x2ft (genuine) Kino Flo fixture with (genuine) 4x Kino Flo 5600ºK globes vs. utilising a third-party 4x2ft fixture with (genuine) 4x Kino Flo 5600ºK globes. See if you can spot which photo is lit with which light..... See Link: http://500px.com/photo/63137605
  9. Hi, Whats the difference between utilising a 4x2ft (genuine) Kino Flo fixture with (genuine) 4x Kino Flo 5600ºK globes vs. utilising a third-party 4x2ft fixture with (genuine) 4x Kino Flo 5600ºK globes? For example, Light Pro make a fixture similar to Kino Flo's Diva 400, however has a more predominant reflector unit. Thoughts? Experience? Tips?
  10. Hi all, Thanks for your replies - highly appreciated. The production is an indie feature film shooting in Sydney through February and March. The production didn't have insurance, nor signed contracts, 4 days out from commencing production, so I took other work. The production were expecting camera department to stick a C500, wireless FIZ, wireless video split, and Battery powered lights to a motion picture car, driven by the talent, with a $500 car rig. Hmmmm...... Michael, as you suggested, I requested a 'contract stating that at the very least, production will pay the deductible on your equipment policy for renting your gear'. Production agreed, however by 4 days prior to the shoot, there still wasn't a contract. Anyways, I have had a very similar discussion with another production company I shoot for, and within 24 hours they were able to organise insurance for all of equipment for their shoot. Makes me wonder why the feature film producer struggled to come up with insurance when I had discussed insurance with him over 10 weeks prior to leaving the production. Thanks again to all for your replies.
  11. Hi, Has anybody had experience with either the TruColor HS or Creamsource, and if so, what are the key difference between the two fixtures? Thanks.
  12. Hey, Over the past year or two I have start to buy equipment that I have required for jobs, such as BarTech Focus Unit, On-Camera monitor, redheads, kinos, etc. My question is, Am I expected to insurance the equipment myself, or is it realistic for the production to have some form of insurance that would cover damage and loss to the equipment? Thanks.
