99 percent of my time is involved with designing new products, building stock of the existing products, answering emails, phone calls etc. I was never a film maker, more of a technical guy, I used to...
I started making really simple follow focuses and a few years later, my full time job and my only source of income is making follow focuses.
I know something like this can seem frustrating, that something so seemingly small and insignificant can cost these ammounts, but you really need to appricaite the whole process.
Just so everyone knows, the Sony Z7 does 250FPS, and has done for quite a while. Does it in 1080 too. It does bursts of three, six or twelve seconds, and the longer your burst is, the more compressed...
Il be there, along with the Hocus Focus and the new HoFoPro.
Would be good to meet some of the people that posted in the 50,000 page long thread about the remote... ]

Looks good Wayne, I see you got your waiting room thing sorted out, hopefully will get to see it soon!
It makes no sense for a company like Zacuto to make an entire EVF from the ground up, when they already have their Zfinder in production, and is a tried and tested and popular product.

Well its priced in GBP, so the price could be anything depending on what the exchange rate does.
We are aiming for £3200 which at today's exchange rate is $5083.
Don't forget that includes the...

We will have a range of cables available for powering the RX off various different cameras, steadicam sleds or other power supplies.
The HoFoPro is a single channel system, we have...

A video of the HFP I found on my iPhone from IBC, just uploaded it.
Note the speed and noise level of the motor etc...

The Bartech is a great system, but has not been updated for a while. The HoFoPro does the same job, but it has a few extra features.
For a start, if you price up the cost of the...

Thanks a lot, I am happy with the products progression.
We have a new system announced now anyway. A lot of you will have noticed that the original HoFo is made for DSLR lenses, and...

Well, I guess there's always....
Hi Everyone, Pete the HoFo guy here.
The current Hocus Focus is really made for DSLR/SLR and Broadcast lenses. The motor is pretty strong, but the rotation on the motor is not always enough to...

This is strange.
Its odd how the camera lifecycle goes, a few years ago it was all the rage to stick an slr lens on your small chip camera. Now its all about full frame dslrs. Maybe in a year or...
Oh, but remember to be really really careful if you start doing this type of pyro, in my first experiments, I used a steel champaign bucket to hold the maroon to duct all the force upwards.
No, the smoke pot is an actual physical effect, its a small pyrotechnic device, its a little pot (looks like a black can of tuna) with some wires hanging out the back. Usually these would...
These will do it for you:

The operating style is a lot like Johan Sandklef, who usualy does the main ESC show. This was from a warm up show, where the country vote for the act they send (as far as I know anyway)

So a while ago the SC forum found this video:
Looks like someone did some clever computer stuff and managed to extract the original...

There is a neat trick you can do with a rubber band, I use it all the time with cheaper tripods and panning, not tried it with tilt but it should work.
Just loop one end of the elastic band round...

Speaking from the spud gun world, where we mke stuff from plastic pipe all the time, Krylon Fusion spray is the paint of choice. Ifmthe pipes bend, it will crack off more, but it should stay on...

I would look at the D Focus too, fairly similar in design, but proven track record and customer service. Ive made the guy (Dave, the D in D focus) and he knows what hes talking about. Also works out...
