  1. That looks like a Preston Light Ranger. It essentially works by making a bunch of different measurements, stacked horizontally across the screen. That way a focus puller can choose a focus distance based on the most relevant measurement. https://www.fdtimes.com/2017/01/17/the-gods-of-focus-speak-lr2/
  2. I agree with Phil. The shape of the sides as well as the curve at the bottom point to an ellipsoidal. Hard to say without anything else for reference, but it's possible it was a Jo-Leko, a Joker HMI attached to the barrel of a source four Leko.
  3. Hi David! I own an FS7 and unfortunately I don't think you'll have much luck using it with the Ronin M. The body is a little too big and it is over the max payload weight wise. One option worth looking at would be the FS5. It's similar in many ways to the FS7 but with a smaller form factor. It requires some special pieces, but people have had success with it:
  4. Hello! The info about QLM is still very helpful 8 years later, many thanks! I have one additional question. I picked up a Minolta Color Meter II on eBay. Knew the risks, and low and behold it's wayyyy off. metering 4k on a cloudy day. Does anyone know if the calibration happens in the head or in the meter itself? There are a few new heads available online. However, these heads are all labeled "Flash Color Receptor" as opposed to "Minolta Color Meter II" (which is how mine is labeled) Does anyone have experience swapping out the head?
  5. You've probably already solved this, but.... If everything was working properly on it's own P-tap, the splitter won't do any harm. The only risk would be if you pulled more amperage than the battery could provide, but that wont be an issue with the a7s and the shogun. I've used that exact splitter, it works great.
  6. Preparing for a documentary shoot which will shoot in six locations, each with a different crew and DP. We're searching for a universal package that can get each unit matching as close as possible. Cameras are Sony FS7 across the board. For the most part, we'll be renting the Canon 15.5-47 or the 14.5-60 along with the Canon 30-105. However, in one of our locations, the only short zoom available is the Angenieux 15-40. My gut says that the Ang won't mesh well with the CN-E zooms, but it's been a few years since I've shot with the Ang and wanted a second opinion. Does anyone have experience matching the Angenieuxs to the CN-E zooms?
