  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Great, thanks i'll go for a clamp on then.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. James, i wish that was the case! Next year maybe :). Thanks!
  10. 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
  11. Hi, sorry if this has been posted before. I'm wondering, what is a good way to start learning to service lenses and eventually learn the re-housing process? It's not much of it at all online. I've taken apart some cheap lenses i bought just for practice & cleaned them. But i'd like to learn more. Switching mounts, making the f/t-stops click free, putting on better focus rings and so on. Any ideas on where to start? Best, Rasmus
  12. Hi, Winter is slowly but surely coming. What are your fellow AC's best tricks for shooting in the winter? Any must know tips and tricks? Good gloves for pulling focus etc. Also! I read somewhere that you can use Cilica Gel bags near the lens in humid conditions. Does this work when moving between warm interior and cold exteriors in below 0 circumstances as well? I've been AC'ing for a while but always strive to get better! Thanks! /Rasmus
