    Yes, very small diameter steel bearings that ride on exposed carbon fiber rails. I found out the hard way that ANY dings in these rails (you set a wrench on it, you touch it with anything metal...),...

    Oh man, that's hot. I wonder if there's a comparable long zoom from Leica for M43. I could see going that way and losing the Metabones unit. I've been wanting to get into Leica for a while.

    I hung on to a sh!tload of incandescent lamps. I have to think there are warehouses still full of that stuff so eBay should be a great source.

    I've been using these: https://www.amazon.com/FOSITAN-Daylight-Dimmable-Photography-Portable/dp/B06XSVP7J6/

    They're bright, dimmable, portable, and inexpensive.

    Muslin and canvas are graded by weight. 4.5oz/62" is pretty standard for muslin, I think.

    If it doesn't say "lens tissue" on the stuff, it's something other than lens tissue. That said, I won't even use cheapo lens tissue, only Tiffen or Rosco.

    Haha, I doubt it. Lens coatings are pretty thin. I knew an AC once who prided himself on never having cleaned the rotating mirror in film cameras.

    Either way, kimwipes are not lens tissue. Would you rather use "Extra low-lint wipers made from 100% virgin wood fibers" or something called lens tissue that is a "Lintless, static-free micro-fiber...

    Nothing other than virgin lens tissue has ever touched any of my lenses. Using a cloth that's been handled a few hundred times isn't a great idea. Oils from hands collects on the fabric and who knows...

    I haven't used a UV filter in over a decade but I own two 82mm Tiffen filters which I would use in the event something might splash or otherwise dirty the front element of any of my lenses. On a...

    Yep, just as it was with Tangerine. And they claimed they shot on iPhone because it's all they could afford, LOL.

    I'd think you'd need legs with spreaders for better stability. A 3' slider with a Scarlet at one end will more than likely tip over on its own on 536 legs.

    I use a much shorter 20" slider on...

    Take a look at the Hive plasma fixtures. Not sure how small you need, but they-are-bright.

    It doesn't matter which of those framerates you use & I would use the fastest shutter speed possible.

    I have a bag that's similar to the Filma bag and have used it quite a bit. The Cinesaddle is about 3 or 4 times the cost and I'm not sure it offers a major advantage over the Filma bag.

    You should probably abandon that clutch thing and get a simple baseplate that allows for iris rods behind the camera. Then get an external battery plate and position it at the end of the rods to the...

    $20K two years after shelling out $20K to upgrade from Scarlet to Epic doesn't work for me, not including the cost of new SSD, etc. I'm still shooting an awful lot on my Epic and have yet to have any...

    I'm glad too especially since the brain is only about 2 years old. The last time I saw that happen was years ago with my Red One and I traced the issue to a crappy Lexar CF card reader I had. I wish...

    As it turns out, that's what it was. My older laptop was used and connectivity wasn't 100%.




    That's pretty much what I plan to do in the event it becomes necessary. So far, so good.

    Corrupt frames in Epic footage

    Anyone see this before? Any ideas what might have caused it? It's very intermittent on Epic 5K footage.
