  1. I agree that for professions it's not serious to buy gear from grey market, because you and others as well are getting payed pretty well from different projects, so you need to be sure that the gear which you have and use has a factory warranty and you have purchased it from authorized dealer for not having any issues and etc... But there is a sector of people who wants to make a risk and buy more gear with less price for a long time shooting, because they don't earn enough money like professions which will allow them to do like you.
  2. Did you bought a camera or lens on this online stores? If yes which are the pros and cons? Does any of them has a shop to go their and physically choose and test the camera or lenses? https://www.e-infin.com/ww/ http://eglobalcentral.eu https://panamoz.com https://slrhut.co.uk https://www.hdewcameras.co.uk https://www.lensauthority.com https://www.camerajungle.co.uk https://usedphotopro.com https://www.keh.com
  3. If so, any item above of 200 euro i need to pay 15% tax. It's better and cheaper to buy physically instead of shipping.
  4. Because in Yerevan we don't have Canon, Sony, Red and other companies authorized dealers or just a dealers our market is very small and majority of here's cinematographers/videographers go to Dubai, others go to US or Europe to buy their desires gear and bring back or asking friends to bring one of the item during travelling from US/EU or Dubai to Yerevan or if the item price is not high they buy online. For me the best place to buy is B&H but it's too far i won't go NYC.
  5. In late this summer i'm planning to buy camera (Canon R5 / Sony A7IV (if it will be announced) / Red Komodo), RF lenses and different accessories for one of that cameras. So i need to travel to one of the european cities like London, Berlin or ... or to Dubai to purchase them directly from Canon shop or specific brand representatives or large markets specialised in selling video equipment. As you are more experienced in purchasing camera gear so from where would you suggest me to purchase in which city of the Europe and or in Dubai? Please if there is specific shop, store add their website, thanks.
  6. sure, so which gel filters can be the best ones for CTO / CTB (Rosco / Lee or) ?
  7. very interesting, so what do you think does 300d ii with his brightnest is enough for you're documentaries? Or you gonna buy/rent when 600d will be available? as 300d ll is a daylight with 5600k (+/-200 - how i know), for getting closer to tungsten do you use gels? If yes tell which one you use and which Kelvin do you get?
  8. Ok i see about mark i light, yes you're right i am planning to rent those lights and understand which one i will choose. I didn't heard it before that flexible lights need to be sent back and repaired very often, but i suppose that it's very possible. Sure intellytech's would be more useful and no leds would be damaged, so they will last longer. Is there any online store like ebay with more oriented on a used video/photo lights ?
  9. Which are the best or affordable batteries and chargers for V-Mounts? 1. for using on lights (Aputure 300di/120dii,, forza 300/500, fotodiox factor prizmo 150/300, intellytech 160, arri s60c) 2. for charging cine cameras(Red, Canon c200/500, Alexa mini,) and mirrorless (S1H, ...) I understand that each light or camera need's specific voltage, that's why for some lights it should be this one for the others that one..., but you can suggest such a versions which will work good on any lights and cameras for long time.
  10. I was renting Fotodiox 300RGB (actual price 2000$) , that one can be called as a competitor for s60 by my opinion. Watch this review, i guess it can be helpful for you.
  11. I am gonna mostly use them for interviews and b-roll, that's why i will prefer to have soft light in bi-color or daylight with V mount plate, because gonna use them everywhere. Sometimes i have narrative project requests or clients asking to shoot small budget music clips that's why i was thinking that RGB lights gonna be very useful during that shoots, but obviously i bought Rosco Color Filter gels, so i can use them as well. I am agree with you, there is no such a light which will do everything. I wont use 300d because of it's noise. So which lights do you use mostly or during interviews, narrative stuff, musical videos? And what can you suggest me? Thanks
  12. By your opinion, let's not include pricing, why 300d is better over 300d II ?
  13. I wanna hear you're suggestions which is the best options for video/photo light between 700-1200$ or with less price? These lights i am gonna use mostly 80% taking videos, the rest 20% it would be some photo shoots. After watching some of the reviews on youtube i find that these are really good lights for use, if you are agree or disagree please tell me. 1. Aputure 300D II or wait until they will start selling Aputure LS 300X Bi-Color 2 Fotodiox Pro FACTOR Prizmo 150 RGB 3. Intellytech LiteCloth LC-160RGBW and in cheapest segment 4. Falcon Eyes RX-24TDX 150W 5. Falcon Eyes RX-818 RGB 100W 6. Menik CB-102A 102W
  14. HI to all, just wanna hear your thoughts that's why don't be too sarcastic ) As you know RED is testing and maybe during this year they will introduce most afforbale camera in their product line - KOMODO, which price will be approximately 5000-6000$ Sources: https://www.cinema5d.com/red-komodo-what-we-know-so-far/ https://ymcinema.com/2019/10/07/komodo-6k-camera-a-badass-little-red/ https://www.4kshooters.net/2019/11/26/red-komodo-6k-sensor-size-revealed/ So here is the question, is it possible that ARRI's engineers are working or will start to work in nearest future to create affordable camera in their line as well?
  15. Wanna get the highest video quality with Sony A7III camera and turn it into "Cinema Camera"! So which brand accessories should i buy for achieving best quality? 1. External monitor for recording with the highest frame rate & please add your suggested settings for external video shooting. 2. SSD or SD for your mentioned external monitor. 2. Rig/Cage. 3. Follow Focus for manual and for wireless using. 4. Matt boxes. 5. Power supply (V mount/Gold Mount or) 6. V mount/Gold Mount/or Lock plate 7. Wireless transmitter so the director or focus puller can see the image If there is something that i forgot, but you advise me to use or add, please tell me, thanks.
