View Full Version : can't wait for HVX! Check out my new camera!!!

12-16-2005, 10:19 PM
Ok, all this waiting and talking has been making me crazy, ruining my marriage and killing my garden. I was about to give up on life when I found a new camera that might give me everything... and more than the HVX in a much smaller package. It records to a 2 gig solid-state memory card and downloads easily into my edit system without capture. Again, it's a much smaller package.

I can't wait to take it out tomorrow and get some footage with it to see how it looks.

I might even get a chance to run it on my magicqam rig this weekend.

Pictures are resized below. Thanks Luis.

whoah, so much for fun. I can't get the images smaller. I thought it was just a mess up when previewing. Help please.

Alright...just delete them from your post.

Here you go:



Edited to add:
Oh hey, it was a handle after all!

Hahahah, that little camera seems a bit out of place on that rig.
I didn't even notice it until now.
Looks like you'll have a little fun.

12-16-2005, 10:29 PM
what type of camera is that, give some specs man!


12-16-2005, 10:33 PM
What the heck is that?
Make and model? just wondering.

Saw that picture and had a good laugh. Definately in need of a follow focus system and matte box.

12-16-2005, 11:03 PM
Matte box and rod system! Ooo Ooo!

I've got a Formatt box, I'll try and rig as well as a piece of junk Focalizzare ff. :)

On a serious note here's the link to the camera. As for specs I'm not sure, but I think it has about as much resolution as one of those old fisher-price black and white cameras that recorded to tape. :)


The video is so bad that I don't even think that it would make for decent behind the scenes. The upside is I can strap it to my helmet for sky diving if I ever take that up as a hobby. Also, it's about as big as a cell phone and water resistant.

emphasis on LITTLE.

Definitely could use a Stedicam...

I might run some stedi tests on my Magiqcam tomorrow. ;)

Somebody give this poor man a technocrane.

Somebody give this poor man a technocrane.

Ooohh, that might just be the ticket. I can do through-the-window shots all day long. I'll be big-budget in no time.

Any one have an extra technocrane laying around i can use? :)

Dude, who needs a steadicam, try this instead:

Hey insanityfw,
leave some booze for christmas eve will ya. Cause I think you had allmost everything...

12-17-2005, 09:21 AM
how do you like the habbycam?

12-17-2005, 10:20 AM

I think that it might be overkill for my usage of family picnics and strolls in the park, but I'm not sure because I can't tell what it does. It sounds more like it might be used for levitating small animals, but I'm not sure. :)

After some more testing and a bit more whiskey as Oliver picked up on, I've decided it might be a better to be patient and wait for the HVX. I'm going to just give the litte junkie cam to my 6 month old and let him use it as a teething toy. :)

Strap it to your dog and make a doggiecam.

Gyros are awesome.

Yeah, but I like mine with beef rather than lamb.

12-18-2005, 07:13 PM
Oh, insanity went there!
Man, I previewed my message three times and then took if back, I figured Barry G and everbody would slaughter me for that one :grin:
I was gonna post that the "best gyros are manufactured in Greece :laugh: "

I dunno, I had some mighty good ones in Cyprus
