Codex Onboard M Recorders 3010
Cody Flowers posted a topic in Cine MarketplaceI have 2 codex onboard m recorders (Cdx-3010) and 8 256gb drive packs, but no reader. I was thinking about seeing if anyone had a desktop reader (Cdx-5500) for sale. I'm also open to offers for the recorders if I can't find a reader of my own. The Codex M recorder can record uncompressed or wavelet cinema quality HD material plus audio and metadata onto a single, removable data pack. When shooting is done, it offloads material much faster than real-time. Can record 4:4:4 and ARRIRAW. Was designed with the Alexa in mind and was used in many feature films. Would love to use them or sell them to somebody that already has a codex reader.
The time has come for me to part with my treasured Sony Cinealta F35 camera. This is a legendary camera used in many visually stunning feature films like Tron Legacy, Transformers Dark of the Moon, Real Steel, and one of my personal favorites, Once Upon a Time in Anatolia. To this day the Sony F35 produces one of the most filmic images of any camera thanks to its 4.5K (12.4 megapixel) CCD sensor, global shutter, film-like highlight rolloff and vast color spectrum. I have spent a long time finding the right camera and all the components, some extremely rare, that make up this complete, top of the line, F35 cinematography kit. Some of the rare components are the BandPro "wet dock" (interface plate), made for the Real Steel film production, that replaces the old and bulky IF box and outputs quad 1.5G HD-SDI, along with GPIO and power. Paired with the Codex Onboard Recorder M, this enables the highest quality output from the camera as well as triggering the recorder from the F35 REC button. Although you may find some Onboard Recorders on eBay, without the extremely rare Data Transfer Station to unload the footage, the recorder is basically useless. Codex Data Transfer Stations are nearly impossible to find these days and are very expensive. In this kit I am including everything you need to record, playback, and offload your footage. You just need to add a battery and a lens, and you are ready to go. Here is the list of items included in this sale: - Sony F35 Serial #11036 with 2765 hours - BandPro Codex CDX-P055 Sony F35 "wet dock" - Codex CDX-3010 Onboard M recorder - 3 x 512GB Codex Mags (SSD drives) - Codex CDX-5500 Data Transfer Station - ATTO ExpressSAS H6F0 PCI card (inside Sonnet enclosure) - Sonnet Echo Express SE 1 Thunderbolt 3 enclosure (used to connect the Codex Data Transfer Station to a modern Mac via Thunderbolt 3) - Alphatron EVF-035W-3G Electronic Viewfinder (SDI input from either the camera or Codex recorder. When connected to the Codex you can also review your footage with a LUT) - 2 Ravpower NP-F550 batteries and a USB charger (batteries used to power the Alphatron EVF) - Element Technica EVF mount - ACSE German-made custom baseplate for F35 with power distribution and quick release shoulder pad - Custom-made AC adapter with 20 feet (6 meter) cord - Custom-made V-mount battery plate with 3 foot (1 meter) cord and belt clip - All cables needed to get everything working Here is the link to 30 high resolution photos to see the kit in detail: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ZPoAQ74ej41j162JA (Please note the lens and battery you see in some photos are not included in this kit. They are for demonstration purposes only.) Everything is in good to very good physical condition and 100% functional. The only issue I have encountered is that one of the two outputs from the Codex Recorder is not functioning, however since it has two identical outputs, this is not a problem - I keep the EVF connected to OUT 2. I feel I should mention this to be completely transparent as this is a very rare and unique piece of kit. In fact, I will be very happy to help you get up and running with it as I have learned much about using this equipment throughout the years. Price: $7200 + PayPal fee + shipping. I will also accept Venmo, in which case there would be no PayPal fee. Although I have not posted much here on Cinematography.com, I have been a member of Dvxuser.com since 2004. I have posted many times, purchased and sold many items there, on RedUser.com and on eBay (eBay ID is Samana76). Everyone I have done business with has always been 100% satisfied. You can rest assured you are dealing with an honest and reliable person. I am located in the San Francisco Bay Area. If you are local, you are welcome to come see and pick up the F35 in a COVID safe environment. I also have extensive experience in packing and shipping delicate items safely everywhere in the world, so domestic or international shipping is not a problem. Please look at the high resolution photos and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

SONY F35 + COMPLETE CODEX SYSTEM + ACCESSORIES
Igor Bertolucci posted a topic in Cine MarketplaceHello Everyone, After much thought I have decided to put my complete Sony F35 + Codex package up for sale. This is the only Sony F35 kit you will find to have a complete Codex Onboard Recorder package. This includes the Codex Onboard Recorder, 1 512GB + 3 256GB Data Packs, F35 Wet Dock, Control Panel, all necessary cable, the incredibly rare and expensive Desktop Transfer Station (DTS) and an ATTO ExpressSAS H3680 card inside a Sonnet Echo Express Sel case which plugs into any MAC with a Thunderbolt port. The Codex Recorder and DTS both have all available licenses activated: 12bit 444 uncompressed DPX, compressed JPG, ARRI RAW, CANON RAW. The DTS can automatically convert to ProRes422, ProRes444 or other formats on the fly for immediate editing of your footage. Also this is the only recorder that will record everything the Sony F35 can output: uncompressed 12bit 444 up to 30fps and uncompressed 10bit 444 up to 50fps - something that even the Odyssey 7Q cannot do because you need 4 SDI connectors for this last output. In addition to all this, Start/Stop recording can be activated via the record button on the F35. This Sony F35 is a complete OTTO NEMENZ kit with, in addition to other things, 2 custom machined cheeseplates, a machined top cheeseplate with integrated single 15mm rod mount and their spectacular viewfinder mount, which I updated with custom made 3D printed parts. If desired this can be easily changed to the original Otto Nemenz viewfinder setup. I have a great many accessories for sale to make a complete "ready-to-shoot" system. These include: Red One 18-50mm f2.8 lens in great shape, a Carl Zeiss Biometar Jena 120mm f2.8 PL mount lens, a Carl Zeiss Biometar Jena 80mm f2.8 PL mount lens, a Helios 44-2 58mm F2 PL mount lens, Vocas Wooden Handgrip with 150mm offset extender, an Ikan D5 monitor, Zoom H6 recoder with Gator waterproof case and Monster Digital 32GB SD card + Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Mic, a 2 stage Chrosziel matte box with french flag, SHAPE 8000 quick-release V-Lock shoulder mount/baseplate, Sony VCT-14 quick-release tripod adapter, O'Connor 50D fluid tripod head, Lensse S5 Dual Follow Focus with speed crank, Lanparte V-mount batteries with charger, Tiffen 4x5.65 full spectrum IRND 1.2 filter, and other items for a truly complete setup. Since I have so many Sony F35 related items for sale I have created a price list with descriptions in PDF format that can downloaded from the link provided below. I believe I am offering these kits at very competitive prices. Everything is fully functional and in exceptional condition. As I said it took me 2 years of trial and error, testing various components, and finally finding the best parts for what I consider the Ultimate Sony F35 Set-Up. I have selected each component carefully and have taken exceptional care of them all. Photos and links to photos of many of my components can be found here below. Here is the link to the price list: http://www.igorbertolucci.com/SONYF35SALE/SONY_F35_Kit_Price_List.pdf As an incentive, with the purchase of multiple kits, or better yet the entire list of equipment, I am able to offer an even better price than the already very competitive prices you see in the price list. If you are interested in purchasing multiple kits please contact me. Shipping will vary depending on the kit(s) purchased and the destination. For the "Sony F35 with Codex Onboard Recorder Kit" WITH the Otto Nemenz hard cases you are looking at around $400 shipping in the US and $800 overseas. Without the cases this price drops substantially as they cases themselves are very heavy. I regularly pack and ship hand-crafted ceramic items all over the world and can pack all the equipment securely and safely in boxes without the hard cases, which will reduce the shipping cost to about half: ~$250 CONUS, ~$500 overseas. Shipping will be from San Francisco.

Hey there! I'm sorry if this is too many questions at once, but I figured it would be better to just lay my initial questions all out at once instead of peppering them throughout the thread over time. I graduated from college this May with an English degree and a minor in Communications, and I want to go to film school as a graduate student. In order to do this, I need a short film (I'd really like to go to USC). However, my university didn't/doesn't exactly have a cutting-edge film program, so I'm a little flustered. Here's a bit of background about my short film project. It concerns a young woman going to a bar in the early hours of her 21st birthday (it's like 12:08 AM) and ordering her first-ever drink. It's going to be shot without dialog--it will be all body language and sound effects, like a Pixar short, if that makes sense. I want the look of the film to be "objective" (I know that's not a real thing in film) except for a couple of wide-angle shots and a deep focus shot which pulls back over the bar to establish that she's in a bar (if there's a way to do this without deep focus, let me know). I'd also like to do something like this shot from The Music Man (https://youtu.be/CC33O52pGUg?t=2m43s). I don't know how they did it, but I suppose you can cheat it in post if you're a good/patient enough rotoscoper. Anyway, I was looking into what kind of camera I should use to film this project. I've saved up a bit of money and I want to get the best camera possible for the job without requiring me to learn a textbook-worth of information or have tons of hands-on time with the camera before I use it. Since I'll be filming in a real bar (sadly, I haven't saved up enough money to build one from scratch on a soundstage) at night, there will be low light and the possibility of competing color temperatures (since I can't exactly tear out any lights). I'd also prefer to go for as filmic a look as possible. I would shoot the project on film if I could, but I super-don't know enough about film to do that. For this reason, I was looking at either the RED camera or the ARRI Alexa XT. After reading about the RED, I came away with the impression that it was a very particular camera that had kind of a steep learning curve, and that the ARRI Alexa XT would be much easier to shoot with, although I don't know if it's easy enough. My experience has mainly been with that one miniDV Canon SD prosumer camera that everyone had. I also would like to shoot Open Gate ARRIRAW for the project to maximize the pixel count for upscaling to 4K. Since I live near Atlanta, I'm looking at renting from here: http://pce-atlanta.com/. Here is their list of cameras and lenses (PDF): http://www.pce-atlanta.com/pdf/Camera%20Catalog_4_8_2013.pdf. I'm going to be renting the camera and lenses for a weekend. So my first question is: how feasible is this? Especially as I've never used the Alexa before and I'm not an experienced color corrector. Can you just drop ARRIRAW footage into the free version of Da Vinci Resolve or Adobe SpeedGrade and get good results just by messing with a few presets, or is it going to be a month of tedious work? Because I don't have the time to devote every day to it, especially as I'll also be doing foley work. My second question is this: ARRIRAW is flat footage, correct? So how do you know how the colors are going to look when using the monitor? My third question is: how much is that Codex docking station that plugs into the USB 3.0 connection on a MacBook Pro? I've been unable to get a straight answer from their website. And do I need to buy a software license to transfer the ARRIRAW files to a hard drive using it? My fourth question is this: what kinds of lenses should I use? I was thinking of just getting a zoom lens, since that would be cheaper, but would I be able to pull off that deep-focus shot with it? And ARRI's website tells me that shooting in Open Gate ARRIRAW can be a problem because a lot of lenses don't fully cover the sensor area. Do any of the lenses on that list qualify? I'd rather not abandon the Open Gate part of my plan, but I'd sooner abandon it than abandon the Alexa XT (although if I weren't shooting in Open Gate ARRIRAW I guess I could switch to an Alexa with the XT module), so if I have to, I will. My fifth question is: do I need to get a new tripod? I mainly have the kind which you can use for still camera work or for that relatively light Canon prosumer camera I mentioned. Is the Alexa XT a heavy camera? My sixth question is: lighting. I don't understand it. I have a lot of questions about it. I'm considering just using the available light for this reason. For instance, I understand the three-point lighting method (or I think I do, anyway) and I understand how it's easy to do in close-up, but what happens when you cut to a long shot from a different angle, exposing where the lighting rigs would be? My seventh question is: how do I keep it from looking like TV? Let me elaborate on that. I initially thought that aspect ratio played a part in making TV look like TV, but Better Call Saul looks like a movie to me, and Witness for the Prosecution, mistakenly presented in 16:9, looked like a movie as well--not like TV. So my theory is that it has something to do with coverage and composition (and maybe editing and lighting, too). I want my short film to look like a film. What are some common pitfalls I should avoid if I don't want my film to be mundane? I think that's it for now. If you guys could do me a favor and keep checking this thread, I'm sure I'll have more questions. Thank you so much for your time. Also, please let me know if in the future I should make separate topics for questions with separate subject matter. I just didn't want to clutter up your forums.
Codex Action Cam
Andrew Russo posted a topic in General DiscussionI'm putting together a test hopefully in a week or so over at Radiant Cameras in LA, but does anyone have any experience shooting with the Codex Action Cam? I'm trying to do a POV shot a la Strange Days (1995) with the camera mounted to a head rig and the recorder, batteries, etc strapped to a vest. The shot will be going from a night ext to night int and will be lit, but with a low light feel so light sensitivity is important. If so, here are a few questions I have: 1) How does the camera perform in low light? 2)How is the dynamic range on the camera? 3) I know there are Kowa c-mount mini lenses you can get for it, but any other type of mini lenses that will work with the camera and are still lightweight since it's on the ops head? 4) How does the footage cut with Alexa 2k in terms of color space and dynamic range? 5) Any other small, POV cameras worth testing? Thanks! Best, Andrew
