  1. Hey all. I hope all is well. I'm looking for Moviecam Compact Ground glasses (specifically Academy ground glasses with scope markings and 1.33/1.85 markings). If you have the frame glow masks for them as well that would be great as well. Best Mayer
  2. Looking for one Aaton XTR magazine for my Aaton XTR plus (I think any XTR magnetic magazine should work on it right ) ? Feel free to email me. Best Mayer Chalom mayermaxchalom@gmail.com www.mayerchalom.com
  3. Looking for an Aaton Xtr Prod Camera PL Mount (with 2-4 magazines, charger and batteries) for purchase. Preferably would like to buy from somebody based in the United States (I'm based in New York). Feel free to PM me or send an email to me at mayermaxchalom@gmail.com Best Mayer Chalom www.mayerchalom.com
  4. Are there any particular brands/types of lights that can be programmed/mechanically controlled? Also are there any particular strobes you would recommend?
  5. Hey I hope all is well. I have an upcoming shoot that involves a party scene and I would like to include strobes and lights that pan and pivot. I've recently been looking at the work of Evan Prosofsky, Stuart Winecoff, and Steve Annis who have been producing some amazing work (in particular party/night scene work). Please find attached the links to the videos I'm referencing and some frame still frame grabs. If you guys could point me towards the kinds of lights I'm looking for that would be great. https://vimeo.com/129187816 - Stuart Winecoff (music video for Astronomyy) https://vimeo.com/95145651 - Steve Annis (music video for Wilkinson- see 1:45) https://vimeo.com/50873621 - Evan Prosofsky (music video for Grizzly Bear)
  6. Hey guys. I am shopping around for prices for an upcoming project on super 16. I am interested in processing and 2k raw scans. I've contacted both Cinelab and Colorlab about their services and pricing. Cinelab is a bit more competitive with the pricing for the project but uses Xena scanner where as Colorlab uses a Spirit Scanner (not sure about the quality difference) Can anyone chime in with their experiences with these two labs and the quality of their 2k scans? Can anyone also recommend any other labs that do 2k scanning for a reasonable cost? Best Mayer
  7. Hey I found a used SR2 pl mount and super 16 with a built in video assist for a very good price. From the pictures the camera seems to be in great cosmetic condition however there are some things that seem strange about the camera. In particular where there is supposed to be a Start/Stop Lever there is foreign looking knob. Also in the area where there is supposed to be the APEC (exposure control system) there is nothing. (Please reference photographs) Can anyone venture to explain this. From my own research I discovered that Arri manufactured an SR II-E which did not include the exposure system which would explain the blank space.
  8. Hey all a couple questions. I am in the process of aquiring an Arri SR I (with a super 16 modification to the gate) and have some questions about Arri(s) mounts. Can Arri Standard Mount Lenses fit onto Arri Bayonnet Mounts? Can an Arri SR (I) be modified to have an Arri PL mount? If not, can PL lenses fit onto the Arri Bayonnet Mount (SRI). Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
  9. Hello all. I'm interested in learning more about S Log but I'm quite confused by the various information about what it is and it's practical use. Forgive me for being blunt, but what is S-Log? Is it a file format? A kind of Color space? In addition how does S Log correspond with the post process with LUTs ? Thanks.
  10. Thanks. EVFs aside what are some cheap monitoring solutions that work with the pocket.
  11. Hello I'm a student on a budget building a rig for my blackmagic pocket cam. I'm interested in purchasing and lcd/evf for shooting hand held on a shoulder mount with the blackmagic pocket. I have found only a few off brand hdmi evfs and I am looking into the Cowboy Studio EVF (see link below). (http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-EVF-Electronic-ViewFinder-E-350/dp/B00DUGZYU2/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1421709287&sr=8-1-fkmr1&keywords=feelworld+evf) Has anyone tested this with the Blackmagic Pocket Camera? If so how well does it work? Thanks.
  12. Hey I'm a student interested in building up a light kit and I'm looking into picking up some older 1kw and possibly 2kw Colortran Fresnels. Can anyone tell me more about these lights. From what I've gathered they were mostly used for stage lighting in the 70s and 80s. Also how do these older units compare to a newer 1kw/2kw arri fresnel/mole richardson light. In addition, If I understand correctly, the power rating of a light is not indicative of its intensity as different systems (i.e florescent) outputs more lumens per watt than tungsten. Does this hold true when comparing fresnels to other fresnels? Thanks and I appreciate any input. Mayer Chalom
  13. Hello I am interested in improving my craft with handheld shooting and learning more about different kinds of handheld techniques and support gear. On a technical matter I'm interested in acquiring a shoulder rig for a blackmagic pocket cinema and a shoulder rig for a blackmagic production (4k) camera. Does anyone have any economical suggestions? In particular I'm looking for a rig that can be built up as well offset the camera as to allow me to use the camera's lcd. Recently I shot a short handheld with the blackmagic 4k and a Wooden Brand Shoulder Rig. I loved the build quality of the rig and the handles really ergonomic but the lack of a counterweight made it difficult to shoot scenes where I was pointing the camera down (high angle shots). Also an evf was mandatory as the cameras lcd was completely out of my line of sight. To no fault of the equipment I also quickly came to the realization how difficult it was while operating to pull focus, especially when shooting wide open at 1.5. On large budget productions what kind of tools do DPs employ to shoot hand held? On shots where the camera is tracking a character's movement (running, walking etc) is the focus puller adjusting focus remotely or moving with the operator? Thanks. Best Mayer Chalom
