  1. Hello, I'm wanting to buy my first camera cart and I'm looking for advice on which one to buy. I don't really have a budget but I just want to get the best bang for my buck. The one I have my eye on right now is the filmtools/magliner senior cart. Is there a better one to go with? Any recommendations on junior vs. senior size carts? Besides the cart itself...what about accessories?...Which ones are needed? Thanks in advance! :)
  2. I've been making my own carts for years, and here's my take on the muscle cart. In the NorthEast it rains and snows, and to give sandbags, cable, apple boxes etc a chance to drip dry a little, I started making these with expanded metal. Brakes that are super easy to operate and that hold when loaded. No flat tires with large 12" tall tires in back. 4 available at $575 ea. These make sense if you are in the NYC Metro area. Don't know about shipping. Pls email me direct: karlkimdp@gmail.com
  3. I've been on many shoots that used Camera carts, but not owning one, most of the time the production just rented one for me. I'm about to make a decision - buy a camera cart for my AC gigs or just keep on letting productions rent one. The way I see about the carts are that you probably will never make money off of it. Yes it's nice to have one, but there are too many rental houses that rent out carts for dirt cheap... and as a owner/operator, I probably will never get the money you invested (perhaps in a very long run.) Owning a piece of gear has got to be a business choice, so from a business stand point when I know I cannot beat the rental company's prices, should I own one and underbid them by biting the bullet, or save the money for something else? What are your thoughts?
  4. I'm selling a yaeger mitchell mount base bar and tripod hooks bar for $375. There's a few nicks from general wear and tear but are solid and will last forever. I would sell separately if need be. (these items new would cost $466) Thanks! -coreygegner@gmail.com
  5. Hi, I recently bought some bulk super 8 film from Wittner and a reloadable super-8 cartridge. And when practicing loading with dead film, I'm struggling to get the super-8 to run smoothly through my camera, as Wittner cartridges does not come with the copper ring used to keep the film in place. I think they have replaced the copper ring with a clear plastic larger ring (seen in the photo, inside the cartridge on the right) that is suposed to keep the film (on the receiving side of the cartridge) in place some how? Here is a photo of everything supplied with the cartridge: Please could someone give me some advice on how to load these cartridges? I have seen some information on this forum about DIY reloadable cartridges but not the Wittner cartridges. I hope this makes sense, Thanks in advance. -Harry
