    The fresnel came in a little while ago and man, it's a beast. That's a big 'ole piece of glass. After attaching it to the head, it's way heavier than my Bron Kobold 800 HMI with barn doors and...

    Yeah, the idea of "counter moving"/counter balancing like you would with a Steadicam when you push the camera out away from your center of gravity is similar.

    The vast majority of the time when...

    If you keep going back to the EasyRig, I’d rent one for a week(that’s what I did) from somewhere like Lens Rentals and really evaluate if it’s something that can work for you and WITH you. The...

    The HipShot is great for certain uses and situations. I have one and have used it over the years(also a lot of reality shooters used it and I believe the DP on Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown...

    Sweet Baby Jesus... There IS something that looks more ridiculous than an Easyrig.

    It’s like an inner tube/pool float with shoulder straps. I’m having flashbacks of cartoons with hillbillies...

    If it had maybe only been on one of the barn doors... I mean, it doesn't change the important thing of how the light actually works, it's just drawing unnecessary attention to itself, IMO.

    Yeah, I wish the SteadyGum would have been introduced around 2007 when I was doing ludicrous amounts of handheld work. Have you ever shot a "group interview session"(to be politically correct) with...

    I knew what you meant. I meant Aputure could have played that one up in their marketing. And have the dimmer scale calibrated to top out at 11.
  9. I have the ErgoRig and SteadyGum(which I used a...

    I have the ErgoRig and SteadyGum(which I used a lot last week doing handheld on one of the real estate shows), both of which are mainly for shoulder use. I hate the EasyRig, BUT I shot a few days on...

    That could have actually been pretty funny. Something like, "Our light actually DOES go to 11".

    When I was an intern back in the mid-90's, the senior photog that I went out with most of the time used to dabble in the music video scene back in the 80's and he said there was always money for...

    Barn doors arrived on-time. They are fairly heavy, but they are fairly large, too. They came with an "adapter" that locks right into the Bowens mount of the light, so you can use them with the bare...

    Okay, now make sure you have a BNC plugged into the HD-SDI OUT on the Miranda(this Miranda does not use the component connectors on the camera) and then plug the other end into the SDI IN on the...

    And there is knowing where the advise/point of view is coming from. I'm coming from the perspective of someone who is almost always putting a fairly heavy set-up on a tripod, even if it is...

    With all due respect, I disagree. I've always said, "If you don't want to hear the answer, don't ask the question". If someone asks a question, I feel I should give them my honest answer, that...

    It's not just movement, it's overall reliability, too. Who cares if I can buy 100 copies of some "cheap" set of sticks for one pair of "great" ones, if they break while I'm using them and they ruin...

    No, you do need to weigh things out (no pun intended), because it doesn't make sense to put a 2lb DSLR/Mirrorless cam with a kit kens on a $5K-$10K head and tripod(unless you already own it)(but even...

    Remember the little "mini" Miranda that bolted on over top of the side mounted analog component outs?

    It's a little tough to tell from the pic, but make sure the dip switch for Cam/HD-SDI is towards Cam(left) to receive the signal from the multi-pin(Can't remember if there are any menu settings in...

    There's an old saying, that can be applied to many things, "Buy once, cry once". Meaning instead of trying to save a little money and take a chance with less expensive and quite possibly...

    Do you have the Miranda set-up correctly? It’s been close to 15 years or so since I’ve shot with a 900 with a Miranda or Evertz on a regular basis, but I believe there were dip-switches on the...

    Don't know anything about that brand, but when it comes to tripods and heads, I stick with the "big boys". I replaced my first set of sticks(Carbon Fiber Vintens) after about 10 years in with a set...

    I live in a right-to-work state and don't do any "union work", or at least not enough for it to matter(have to join). BUT (historically), even in the freelance, non-union world, we have(had?)...

    Yep. The repair with shipping was ~76% of what it cost me brand new, with the swivel mount arm, BNC cable and screen protector. But I imagine the Pro SDI versions will come down pretty quickly. ...
