  1. Maybe one day we can have some 4x4 frames filled with soapy water too haha
  2. this might be off topic, but it kind of has to do with reflecting light off a mirror. This guy makes an artificial daylight room in his house. He used a satellite dish and put an LED where the antenna would go so it makes it seem the source is at infinity and get a consistent shadow size at different distances. Thought that was pretty smart. He also made a diffusion frame with soap in it to scatter the light and have a blue sky ambient with out effecting the kelvin of the actual LED source.
  3. Thanks again Dom! Valuable information
  4. Hey Dom, I have one other question for you. My SR is a non high-speed model but it came with two HS mags. I know arri doesn't recommend using them but I've never had a problem. I recently bought 4 non-HS spare mags for parts for super cheap. I know the main difference between the two is the HS has a fixed pressure plate and the non-HS has a sprung plate. Can i just take the throat assemblies from the non-HS and put it in the working HS mags to eliminate any possible flange focal depth issues? They look to be exactly the same. Thanks!
  5. The locking mechanism on the PL mount for my SR seems like it has more play than it should. When I put lenses on the camera, the PL lock can loosen much too easily. Some lenses fit a little more snug than others but overall it seems like it's loose. Is there a way to adjust this tension? I don't want to mess up the flange distance on it by taking the whole PL mount off.
  6. This feels more natural to me since the highlights have room to breathe and aren't taken down below 60IRE.
  7. Alan, I'd be down to ship my SR3 to you. About how long do you think it would take, a couple months maybe?
  8. how much for one of the 4Ah batteries? Is it a Lentequip one?
  9. Hello Danner, 

    Are you still selling the Arri Alexa  Classic, and does it have the option to go to 4:3?

      Apologies for the late reply. I've been dealing with some things out here. If you're still in the market I can send you a video of the Alexa powering up and whatever else you might want to see. In terms of the price, I can come down to $5,500 if you can pay for the shipping. Let me know if this works for you. Thanks!

      Hello Danner, 

      I've met a seller over the phone in NY who has offered me a similar package for the same price. Would you be able to come to about $4600 and I'll cover shipping?  All my jobs are cancelled here in NJ, but I'd like to use my time with mandatory quarantine to play around with this camera. Also which state would you be shipping it from?

      Unfortunately I can't come down that far. I have somebody else who just offered me $6000 but I'm paying for shipping. It would be shipping from CA.

  11. It's about 2.5 Amps with normal accessories with a 6.3 Amp fuse in the body so that's the absolute max. It's specifically for a Moviecam Compact. I wanted to make a 3 pin to 4 pin XLR adapter along with 3 pin XLR power extension cables. Hoping to use the 3 pin XLR's on a variety of cameras, if need be, and adding in the adapter when using the Moviecam.
  12. I thought about using mic cable but was didn't know what gauge the wire is usually. The power cable would be used to power camera (24V). I would be terminating it to XLR.
  13. Greetings, I'm wanting to make some custom power cables but wanted some suggestions on a decent, two conductor cable with a flexible jacket. Let me know what you recommend. Thanks!
