  1. Always be aware that many compressions really do a number to the shadows. If you under expose on certain cameras that use a lower bit-rate you might get smearing in the shadows (not the case on the f7, but this almost killed me on a movi shot using a GH4). I would always rather have to pull down the shadows in post than risk loosing detail in the shadows of an under-exposed image. Light the faces 1-2stops under anticipating the grade but no more than that. This will help highlights or hard hits of lights from being over.
  2. Thank you so much Charlie for the very thourough response! This has definatly gotten me on the right track with this motor.

I purchased a 60hz - 42v sync motor without its transformer for a reasonably low price on ebay. I shouldn't have any trouble building my own transformer but the connector on the motor is a little confusing to me. Does anybody know what the pins are on these 60hz - 42v motors? I assume there is a ground, pilot tone, +/- 42v, maybe a secondary at 8vdc for the torque motor on the SB model? Any help would be appreciated!!
