  1. Hello, I've recently video-tapped my Beaulieu for a project that has required video dailies - it works quite well; just an 8mm bullet camera attached to an external battery with the image being converted through a HDMI into a recordable monitor. It's a pretty simple set up but it's extremely messy -- lots of wires, a chunky battery, it's all quite annoying to set-up/deal with. As I expect to be using this set-up again for further projects, I was wondering if anybody had any thoughts on how I could tidy this up a little bit. My initial thought was a universal frame/adjustable arm but the issues I've ran into here are: a) it's just not capable of supporting the weight of the monitor and external battery and b) the camera has an uneven top, so, even if it did work, everything is way too crooked to really work with. Is there anyway I can merge all of these components together like a Mini or RED set-up that allows me to quickly just slide the camera into a slider/tripod/rig and go, only having to really set-up and break-down once?
  2. Currently, my 5008 MS is in Sweden with Björn being serviced, re-celled, and having a Angenieux 8-64mm collimated - it's a lens I'm very happy with as I've always found it to be sharper than the Schneider 6-66mm. That said, I've recently been offered a chance to buy a 10mm 1.8 retrofocus Angenieux which I've seen be compared to the Cinegon 10mm! But is it worth buying this and then paying for it to be collimated if I've already got a 8-64mm?
