  1. Yes for the most part. I can send pics of all components and ends that need to be connected. Will Do. Thanks
  2. I need to find someone that can make a 11pin JST male to 10pin LEMO Male for the control panel for my HD900. I really don't want to have to resort to putting the stock front face on my camera as I find it flimsy and weak compared to the metal PV front plate. Any help would be most appreciated.
  3. is it possible to get the menu data from the F900/3 to output through the Miranda DVC800 back to an HD SDI monitor? I'm having the hardest time trying to figure this out.
  4. Thats the newer HDCA's that do MPEG.. the 901 is almost 20 years old and only does XLR audio and HD SDI. They are not worth anywhere near $300.. the newer ones, yes i agree
  5. I dont think it is for it's age. I had one this time last year and paid $175 for it.. I returned it because the fuse blew in it and it would not turn on.
  6. I am looking for a Sony HDCA 901 back for my HDW-F900/3. I am able to offer a little over $100 for it so to anyone who has one collecting dust but still in operational condition and wants an extra $100 in their pocket, email me at digitaltproductions@gmail.com and lets see if we can make a deal and you can help me out. Thanks :)
  7. Anyone have a copy of this I can relive? .mac is way out of date.
  8. Seeing if any of you had any Gamma, operator, scene files from the F900/3 camera you'd be willing to share? I have the digital praxis and Kodak curves already.. seeing if anyone ever made any custom ones themselves in CVP editor, or any unique full scene files? Thanks.
  9. I know this is going to be a huge longshot but does anyone by chance have the showreel Panavision put together for the HD900F in the early 21st century? Also, i know Panavision had a "Digital Imaging" shirt for awhile with the HD900F on it.. looking for one for myself. Basically any promotional material you might have for the HD900 I would love to see it purely for nostalgic reasons. Thanks :)
  10. Looking for the Sony HDCA 901 Back for the F900 camera. If anyone has one lying around, happy to take it off your hands for the right price. Thanks!
  11. David, given you used the panavision model quite a lot back in the day.. did you adhere to keeping the knee off and sticking to panavisions default settings or..? :)
  12. I was thinking of that.. if i was still living in my homeland of Chicago where i had contacts at Panavision, VER, Keslow, probably would be a good idea but im really not that familiar with the outfits in Denver here and there are very few of them. If i was still in Chicago I would just take my camera over there and have them help me.
  13. Could you read off the names of the gammas in the menu? Maybe i can track them down online?
  14. I still need to see it! Looks great and i've been a lifelong redford fan. even as a director.. that film Ordinary People he shot in Lake Forest, Illinois is one of my favs
  15. Dang. Did you make them or buy them/download them somewhere?
  16. Anyway you could share these HG Curves? All i have are the Kodak curves and the curves from digital praxis which i think were more Log like or cineon emulating?
  17. if you want to see a good example of a show shot on film that has been remastered from the negative.. get the blu ray box set of Pee Wees Playhouse. Beautiful picture!
  18. I will add though that with the mans budget of $100,000 i think in 2018 he is better off getting a used alexa package of somekind with a nice set of primes. Alexas are going for 10K on ebay for the bodies and he could get a seriously nice PL lens, tripod, etc... Just me but for 100K i would not invest in RED.. not a big fan of red but i admire what they did to continue the movement forward in digital cinema. I think Panavision and ARRI are the kings of cinematic tools.. aaton is up there as well but they i believe shutdown once film no longer was standard
  19. I've heard of people shooting in used genesis' or regular F35 bodies with the Blackmagic video assist 4K or the Oddesy monitor recorder to get 4:4:4 out of it. Always wondered if there were any internal modifications to the image block in the genesis from the F35 like how they changed things in the F900 for their HD900F? I honestly think their partnership with Sony was great! I think they panavised the F55 as well?
  20. Yeah my thoughts exactly.. I know that the gamma curves Sony made with Kodak seem to compress the highlights.. gives you more room up there but then they compressed the darks so unless you are shooting in daylight as you would with 250D stock, you are really limited to what you can do. The HD900 in panavision's default settings actually has about 10 or so stops but those highlights clip so damn fast, i know there is a happy middle ground but from professional studio level things ive seen done on the panavision model like spy kids 2 and collateral (granted collateral was shot at night) it seems like they were getting more ladditude out of the camera than what the pana settings allow? I will say that the tonal range with the pana settings are the best i have seen but the highlights just clip hard, they dont roll off like what ive seen out of the camera in older films. Maybe they were sneaky and just shot interiors with a crap load of ND on the windows or something?
  21. The internal menu settings. I never have used auto knee. I'm just trying to figure out the reasons as to why Panavision stressed to just leave all KNEE circuits in the camera off.. im a getting a better image by leaving knee off? Ive already realized that leaving detail off is best but it just seems like the dynamic range on the panavision camera is limited as hell when no knee support is applied. you have to be very mindful of highlights.
  22. New Question: Panavision listed in the 900F manual to keep the Knee settings off.. my question is why? Do you get more tonal information if you leave the knee off and just expose accordingly? Did most features that used the HD900F abide by panavision's suggestions?
  23. True, but I have never been a fan of frakensteining cameras, its just not my interest.
  24. Indeed it was shot on super16mm using the Arriflex 416 camera so, believe it :D
  25. Completely agree with you on the ENG form factor, it truly is the best.. most modern cameras dont even compare! It's one of the reasons why I still use and own an F900.. i just love the image and the ergonomics of the camera body.
