    Thanks for helping me out!

    It appears I made a couple of errors in navigating the labyrinthian Sony menu. I originally set the button while

    Hey...any idea what the warning "This function is currently disabled. Change the lens status or change the lens" means? Button C2 had nothing on it, so I mapped the Focus mag to the button, and...

    You, sir, are a genius. And I am an idiot who probably should not be trusted with this camera. Or sharp objects.

    James: yeah, it says push release, swing open door. :huh:

    AH: no, nothing is blocking it.

    Weird.

    Here's a headscratcher. (for me, anyway) Just got the A7S3, went to put a card in it, and the card door won't open. At all. Slide the release, and I can see the crack give just a little,...

    Pure Drifting: That is weird. Did you try it with both a battery and no battery in the camera? I wonder if you had a bad Refuel unit.

    The Sony FZ mount found on the F3, F5 and F55 is very strong, no worries, especially with a DSLR lens. If you are using Nikon, you should really get the Optitek Nikon prolock adapter, which gives...

    As with any piece of kit, YMMV. But: I have had excellent success using the "Refuel" power system on the GoPro 7, and hooking up an Anker power core battery to the GoPro 8 for almost all day...

    Don't worry about the busted up rear viewfinder. I've owned three F3s, and still use two of them. I've never once looked in the rear viewfinder. If your Alphatron still works and isn't burned too...

    I have the uber-cheap DFuze soft boxes for my two 1x1 panels. Quick, easy set up, although I find just the Dfuze by itself can make a shiny person look really shiny. Another level of frost on the...

    Maybe it's time for an enterprising young lad to begin distributing foreign puchased Zaxcom units that "fell off a truck."

    Yep...have had producers say, "But in LA, our shooters show up with (names insane list of cameras and gear) all in for $400/day!"

    yep. That's currently the front runner in the auditions for The Camera Capades. What lenses do you use for video?

    Thanks, Doug. I hope a good cold beer at the end of the day can wash away the distasteful rumination I made you perform. :beer:

    You're new to this whole internet thing, aren't you? :) EVERYBODY has an opinion. (sometimes whether you really want it or not)

    Doug: would the S1H work well as a gimbal camera? I've got a run & gun sports series coming up where the marching orders require one. The F55 is probably NOT
    my best choice. And by "gimbal"...

    R&G: do the Focus OLED monitors have the ability to get power from a dtap, or are you locked into using the NP-f battery?

    I have the 702 Bright. I'm a bit underwhelmed. Typical smallHD yellow cast to the video, especially on default, and the image seems a bit over exposed/washed out compared to the viewfinder and the...

    If you do get the Multi-cart, be sure and get the "Grip and Gaff" bag to go with it. Very handy. Just be careful not to grossly overload the bag. My handle is bent back a bit and I have to use a...

    Yes, the F55 can record 4K files and proxies onto the same card at the same time. It cannot, however, dual slot record full rez files. (to the best of my knowledge)

    Charles: I see a lot of references to UAV kit on the Amimom site, but when you follow the "cinematography" product link, it just dumps you onto the Teradek site. Is there a difference between the...

    While watching the product release video shot at the sea shore, I couldn't help wondering how well that extending tube would work with a healthy dose of sea salt and blown beach grit in it.
