  1. Depends on the camera, some easier than others to configure for swapping. I have the Alexa Mini down to about 3 minutes between handheld/sticks and Movi Pro. The key is trying to build all the aks that you will remove into one package. With Alexa Mini I run an MAP1 with the Movi top bracket installed on top of the camera and then MAP2 on top of that. 15mm rod mounted battery plate attaches to that MAP2. On board monitor on quick release from front of top handle. EVF also mounted to top handle. Now it is just 4 screws to loosen from that MAP2 and you remove all of that aks in one piece revealing the MAP1 w/ Movi top bracket ready to go into Movi. For the bottom, having the new CBP baseplate is super helpful as you can have the Arri stabilizer plate living on the Movi. You just slide the shoulderpad/dovetail adapter off and you are ready to go into the Movi there. Also has a nice mounting spot in the front for an RMB where you can keep your focus and iris motors. Teradek TX lives on the dumb side MSB. I don't know if that all makes sense the way I wrote it. Maybe I will do a video one day. It is nice to have dedicated cameras for each mode, but if I am the only 1st AC it is actually more convenient to swap one camera between modes so that my wireless hand unit and monitor remain paired to the one setup and there is less gear for me to schlep around.
  2. They are quite rare. A good friend of mine just picked one up with a nice set of lenses and surf housing. He is also looking into video tap options. I will ask if he will demo for you next time you are in NYC or if he is down to rent or sell at some point.
  3. Rocknrollers are trash. Get yourself the Remin KartMaster. I have travelled with both extensively. The KartMaster is a bit heavier and more expensive, but it is built like a tank and rolls like a Cadillac. Because of the way it folds, you don't have to worry about it opening up in transit. At the airport I typically lay my folded 42" inovativ on the bottom and stack another couple hundred pounds of cases on top of that.
  4. Hey Marco, I am interested. Please send pics and price to me at James@JJLCinema.com
  5. As a 1st AC, when I am hired for a checkout I tell the producer that I will need all equipment in one place for a minimum of 6 hours for single camera. The place to be is whichever rental houses you are getting the lenses from. This way if there are any issues with the lenses they can be addressed on site.
  6. Working link to pictures. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1caoLRHLbhGVh49e2VVGsLisHLsTvLNRg Make me an offer!
  7. This AMC kit came with my WCU-4 purchased new from Innocinema this fall. I work mainly with Alexa mini so it has only been out on 2 jobs. Most of the cables have not ever left the case. This controller is great for use with any camera platform and can drive up to 3 cforce plus or cforce mini motors. You can connect with WCU-4 and SXU-1 wirelessly, as well as wired connection to other LBUS devices.

  8. Any interest in selling just the cforce mini rf motor?
  9. Best tip is to overwork yourself through summer and fall so you can take the winter off, but maybe not realistic. One idea that I want to test this winter is using usb powered heated scarves in a number of ways. You can find these things on amazon and they work very simply off any battery with a usb output. Applications that I want to test include keeping batteries and mags warm on camera and in the case, besides the obvious personal warmth applications.
  10. I have experienced a similar issue and deduced that the cause was the Cfast cards overheating. When rolling long takes and filling the cards to capacity they get quite warm. Try letting them cool for a couple of minutes before offload.
