  1. Yeah I was able to get ahold of SmallHD. They think it could be the cable and are sending me a replacement. I'll let you guys know when I figure it out. Thanks so far for all your help!
  2. Hey Guys, Question for you all since SmallHD's support part of their website is no help - I just got a SmallHD focus and while I love the UI and the form factor I noticed an issue. Whenever I send 1080p 23.98 footage to it it always shows at 1080i/59.58 and seems have movement artifacts/aliasing. Just to verify that this is an issue I sent 720p footage to it and it was fine. I am using a canon c300 MKI. Does anyone else have a similar issue with it? Should I return it? Thanks for an advice you can give!
  3. I have a bunch of NP-F style batteries that I use to power my lights and monitor(s) and so far I've just bought the best deals and haven't had an issue yet. However I have not used them to power a camera. I've generally found it better to just buy a bunch of lower cost batteries and leave some charging while I'm shooting. The best thing ever has been this dual charger with the options of a fast or slow charge. Link: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N8Y0A7B/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Are you getting an Aputure Amaran 5xx or 672x model light? If so those come with 2x 970 batteries to get you started. I have a couple of those lights and have had 0 issues with the batteries they've shipped with.
  4. Here are some examples. They are literally screen shots, no grading or anything. I used 2x of those lamps rigged with rope. The rope was tied/zip tied to trees and then staked into the ground. I also used a hand full of small battery powered leds, mostly an Ice Light 2 and an Aputure 672s.
  5. I'm not sure if this violates the ToS for the form so I'm sorry if it does but I used 2 of these as ambient fill on a night time shoot this weekend in a paper lantern and they worked great! Here are the lamps I used: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00RKLXJOQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 If you search "Corn Light" or "Corn Light LED" on amazon and the desired color temputure you'll get a lot of low heat, very bright options.
  6. I think you defiantly have a clear style. I would cut it down to 1:30-2:00. Nice work so far!
  7. The grip is glued to the focus element . I've seen the "jump" (I'm not sure a better way to describe it/I'll upload a video later in the evening) before on canon 18-135 kit lens but just assumed he dropped or damaged it as the lens was in horrible shape, I wasn't aware it wasn't a super rare occurrence. Do you think the element just needs to be cleaned?
  8. Hey Guys, Recently I picked up a used Tokina 28-70 f2.8 on eBay. For the most part it seems like a nice lens but this one seems to have some an issue: When I switch to manual focus it seems to hit some bumps and makes a grinding noise when I focus it. I would normally be okay with it if it didn't affect the image but it does. I placed the lens on a sandbagged locked down tripod and attempted a rack focus. When it hits a certain point from focusing the entire image jumps like the tripod shakes like someone hit it. Furthermore the auto focus is really really noisy (not a big deal since I don't really take stills but might be indicative of the issue). I tried several different attempts and verified the tripod was locked down. Has anyone ever experienced this? Is there a fix? Should I just return the lens? Thanks!

    It's a #2 clamp, the jaws have a 2" opening. It's rated to hold 38 lb as almost all clamps of that size are however I wouldn't put more than a few pounds on it for safety reasons. It doesn't come with the ball mount, just the clamp on the photos at the top of a page. If I were near a computer I would post a photo. I hope that helps. Thanks!

    Hey guys, I'm a new member here but I've been reading thread for a while. I just launched/created a product to help mount LEDs, Microphones, anything with a hot shoe mount. I call it the "JClamp". You can check it out here: http://jclamps.com Let me know what you think. Thanks.
