    Something I said to a friend years ago when he told me he was looking for a client to send him into the Middle East for war coverage, “Money is no good to me if I’m not alive to spend it”.

    And as...

    HMI's really aren't "full spectrum", either. Depending on the age of the lamp, you can get noticeable color shift. I own multiple HMI's, but I'm only using them when I need the power(this can mean...

    Probably the way everything was allocated/packaged. This recent sale, I'm presuming, was a package from Litepanels/Vitec, because B&H was running the exact same deal/rebate. So I'm presuming there...

    Pull the diffusion panel off of the 1x1 and you will see that the green LED's are always on with "white light"/CCT. I was kind of surprised...

    I'm still a tungsten guy, at heart. I have several Pelicans full of 150, 300 and 650 Arri fresnels and Source Fours. Source Four's used to be the best 'bang-for-your-buck' in the industry. You...

    I picked up a pair on the group buy last year and they are good lights. Lots of bang for your buck. But I only use them occasionally, because they're such a pain to put together and break down,...

    Most of my indoor, lit shoots are interviews. It's now changed a little, but over the last two years it's gone from 'bi-color Astra's and Hive 100-C's' to 'bi-color Astra's, 2x1 Gemini's and 100 &...

    It wasn't for frame rates, per se. I believe it is actually for progressive and interlaced signals. I think the F55 spits 23.98 out as PsF which is seen as interlace instead of a true progressive...

    My battery plates for my 1x1's finally came in yesterday while I was still out of town on a shoot. Finally got a chance to put them on after lunch today and there are two pretty big things that I...

    I wonder if Sony found that at the higher ND grades, with less light coming through they needed more IR control specifically tuned for each grade that you wouldn’t be able to achieve with variable...

    The F55 is very big in the Network and Network Sports world. It's kind of a swiss-army knife of a camera that can do narrative(like The Crown and Vinyl), Live Shots, interviews, doc work,...

    It’s not RF mount, but technically, I don’t see why Canon couldn't do it, if they made an RF mount version. Sony F55/5, Fs7 series and Venice* all have built-in ND systems under their FZ and E mounts...

    Murky and grey? Maybe if someone took ungraded log and ran it. I guess itís like every other camera out there today. Itís all in the grade or the look you bake-in. I have an original C300, among...

    Just got an email from Abel today that they have finished moving to their new place in Brooklyn. Since they're a RED dealer and do classes, etc. maybe that made more sense to have a big dealer with...

    Glad I could help. I don’t think I’ve ever bought any Tenba cases/bags before. I’ve mostly used PortaBrace, Pelican, Petrol and Kata for most of my gear(The latter two no longer exist. Gobbled up by...

    I don't know what your budget is, but in my world, Lectrosonics is the de facto standard. But it'll cost you several times what one of the AVX systems runs. For reference, for a system consisting of...

  20. Case for Gemini 1x1's

    If anyone out there ordered a pair of 1x1's outside of the kit like me and is looking for a good, inexpensive case for them, I found one.

    I was originally just planning on using one of the...

    If you want a very capable, but lighter set-up, may I suggest my "everyday" set-up: a Vinten 100 head with Flowtech 100 legs. The head is capable of a max payload of 44lbs. I shoot a variety of...

    The Flowtech 100's are great. I pulled one of my sets of SpeedLocks out and put a Flowtech in its place last year after they came out. Very easy to carry, quick to deploy and even more rigid(less...

    True. The 17-120 does ramp and the 19-90 does not. But... the Canon also does not ramp from 17-91. So you can get a little philosophical and say you have a 17-90 T2.95 lens with a bonus 91-120...
