  1. You could look at the Aputure MC lights. Not sure how much light you need.
  2. Thanks for the thoughts so far David and M Joel. Right now I am planning on keeping the screen close to 40 IRE and the talent close to 60 IRE. I have done some test shots and think I am managing the green screen spill. However they have not yet picked a background so I really cannot color correct everything perfectly yet. Right now I am testing at 5.6 aputure with 400 ISO. However once I get this dialed in I'll need to redo it all because I will be placing a 70/30 teleprompter glass in front of the lens. I THINK that will take 1 to 1 1/2 stops away, so I'll have to adjust for that. I actually have no idea how to measure the amount of light stops the glass will take away. Does anyone know how that is done?
  3. I did a search but cannot find the answer, hoping someone can help me out. I am shooting on a green screen for my first time and have been doing some testing. For this spot I am very limited in space, talent will be about 4 1/2 feet away from the screen. It's waist up, 2 camera angles, and not a lot of moving around. My cameras will both be Blackmagic 6K cameras with prime lenses on them. My question is...what shutter angle should I use? I have looked in numerous places and the only answer I can find, in one space, is move my 180 degree shutter angle down to 90 degrees. This will get rid of the motion blur and I can put that back in during post, if needed. What shutter angle should I be using and does it vary with any variables? Thanks all!
  4. I have read several reviews over the last several months where users have purchased them and all of them go like this. "It was a great deal but after a few uses it a) started falling apart; b) I can't believe how uncomfortable it is; or c) I know why the original versions are so much". As much as I love the lower prices, you certainly get what you pay for.
  5. I keep waiting, more like hoping, that they will come out and allow the EasyRig MiniMax to be upgraded just a little bit more than it is. I have it and I am also going to have to buy the EasyRig Vario with STABIL and I just cannot understand why one costs $1300 and the other will cost $7,000, with nothing really in the middle. Unless you go with a cheap Chinese knockoff, or a ReadyRig.
  6. In looking at the ONE tray it looks like I can, in the space of one stage, add a circular 138mm ND filter instead of a 4 x 5.65 ND filter. The reason I am looking at this is because the price of a 138mm Tiffen ND filter is approx. $300.00 but that same filter at 4 x 5.65 is just over $500.00. Buy 3 of these and the ONE tray has paid for itself. However Joshua above stated some really great reasons for not using circular filters and I also talked with Scott Balkum and he stated much the same thing. I think I will just bite the bullet and get the 4 x 5.65 Tokina Cinema IRND filters I have been looking at.
  7. Thanks everyone. One point I have found different than stated is the price information. I am looking at close to $500.00 per ND filter at the 4 x 5.65 size and the same ND filter by the same company at the 138mm size is half that price.
  8. I am looking at the ONE Tray by Bright Tangerine ( https://youtu.be/OiduOxbE-MY) and need a bit of education concerning filter sizes. As I have no filters at all I can easily go in any direction, but I want to make sure I am heading in the right direction. Is there a danger or difference in using a 138mm round filter size compared to using the 4 x 5.65 filter size. If it makes a difference my Matte box is the Bright Tangerine Misfit Kick. Thanks for any thoughts.
