Dear all,

 

I'm shooting a short film next month with an Arricam LT. Our number of mags are limited, so we will go with 1000' rolls. On the ST I've seen that the magazines can be mounted on top of the camera. My question is whether it's possible to do this with the LT as well.

 

We need to do this, since many shots will be on a jib, and if the magazine is mounted to the rear, it will undoubtedly knock against the jib if we're in a steep low-angle.

Alternatively (and this might be a question better suited to a gripping subforum) is there a way of extending the jib to avoid the aforementioned problem? '

 

Many thanks in advance!

If you check out the various quick guides online such as:

or

you can see there is an adapter that allows you to use studio mags on an Arricam LT at a slightly elevated and angled position, but there is no facility to mount a mag directly on top.

Thanks for your reply.

 

Do you know if this would still work on a jib arm?

Depending on the jib, you may be able to undersling the camera which could solve the problem. Long cameras are not usually a problem for something like a Jimmy Jib. Most broadcast and Alexa/zoom lens rigs are longer and work fine.
