  1. Hi, I've seen a lot of AC's using their own FPV antennas on different types of wireless video links. It got me interested so i started researching the topic. But i couldn't find any answer in what scenarios it's beneficial with omnidirectional antennas instead of the standard (for example) teradek ones you get with the kit? Does the range improve? Or is the range the same but with less signal drop / weird effects? Teradek claims you can use any third party 5.8ghz antennas for some of their products but doesn't wanna give any recommendations. Also of course i don't want to fry any transmitters so is there anything you should think of before testing? The main reason i'd like to use it is to have "stubby" antennas on the transmitter to make my camera builds as compact as possible. Thanks!
  2. Thanks Loren! That's what i expected. Ive been in contact with Cmotion and they're gonna have a demo version at a retailer so i can try it out hopefully later this year.
  3. Hi everyone, i'm looking in to buying my own focus handset. Obviously i've been looking at the WCU-4 since it's the standard where i work and i'm really used to it. But then someone recommended the C-motion C Pro handset. (roughly the same price as a smaller used wcu-4 kit) Which i have never heard of until now. I looked it up and it looks really promising. But have any of you guys had any hands on experience with it? Would love to hear your thoughts on it. I'm also afraid that the second i get the wcu-4 arri releases a new system. Thanks! Rasmus
  4. I highly recommend the Cine RT & personally prefer it over the udm and cinetape. Their team at Focusbug is great and super helpful as well.
  5. Great, thanks i'll go for a clamp on then.
  6. Hi all, i'm wondering what the safest mattebox to put on a black arm / russian arm is for a car commercial where i assume the DOP will use polarizers and different filters while shooting. (And i want a clear filter in front of the lens for possible chips flying from the car we're filming.) Obviously i feel like a clamp on mattebox feels a bit risky. But wouldn't a mattebox with rods cause small vibrations near the lens while going at faster speeds? What's your experience with this? What works, and what doesn't? Best, Rasmus
  7. I'm not sure. We stayed with 25fps in the edit. Obviously your synced clips are going to slide out of sync once they play for a bit. If you have an artist that's lip syncing to the song and have many different angles of it you can make it work. I'm not sure if you can "convert" it to a different framrate though.
  8. I did this once by mistake. 25p project rate and 24fps. Luckily there wasnt much sync so it worked out with some magic while cutting it.
  9. Thank you Matti! Exactly the types of tricks i was looking for! Do you find the preston or WCU-4 better in the cold? Have you tried just increasing the motor torque for older lenses in cold conditions? And regarding the zeiss / HS or SS. A trick i usually do for the mattebox is that i take off the outer part of the mattebox, only using the backplate and filter array holders. Then the wireless follow focus usually manage the weight. Best, Rasmus
  10. Also regarding keeping batterys warm. One thing i was thinking about trying instead of the heated scarves is using these glove heaters in my runbag/floorbag between the batteries. Might do the trick as well! Here's a link. https://www.amazon.com/Grabber-Hand-Warmers-Odorless-Activated/dp/B007ID2ILQ?ref_=fsclp_pl_dp_3
  11. James, i wish that was the case! Next year maybe :). Thanks!
  12. Hi, i got a Canomatic R 58mm 1.2 and are planning on getting the remaining lenses from the series. I got a sweet deal to rehouse them with a contact i have. But im wondering. Why is there almost no information at all about these lenses? Ive done some basic tests with the 58 that i own on a point and shoot with an adapter and i like the look of it. Ofcourse there are some imperfections but thats trendy anyway haha! Im doing a test at a rental on an alexa mini with an ef mount next week to see how it is before deciding. But im just a bit nervous since it seems like no-one has rehoused these lenses before. If you know anything or have links to any info about the Canomatic R lenses please let me know! Best, Rasmus
