    Yes, in theory the insert cars (Shotmaker etc) all re-route the exhaust. We always end up building some version of a tent out of solids for monitor visiblity and it traps enough of the residual fumes...

    As usual is the case with commercials, the grade is out of my hands. I did use external recorders on the A7's, Shogun Flames.

    This great lens still available! I used this to shoot the pilot of Key & Peele way back in 2011, including the now-famous "I said b-i-i-i-i-tch" sketch. I phased out my EF mount lenses, this is the...

    This isn't necessarily the strongest stuff I've shot but it's maybe helpful to see in terms of skin tones? Dunno. It was a clip reel I made when I was up for a feature (actress at the beginning was...

    Harkening back to the question of putting a Varicam on a Movi...here is the setup on my current show, two cameras on 7' Chapman Miniscopes with LT's and Cabrio 19-90's. Tight fit but works fine.

    There are still levels within those three levels. I primarily work in that rarified air of the third level you are describing but I am almost always struggling with the camera budget and while rental...

    Hi!

    5 yrs on, I can't remember the specifics too well. It looks to me to be a smaller unit relatively close, like a 2x4 Kino or equivalent from maybe 6 or 7 feet away (in that last season of the...

    I'm hoping they are finally going to do something with the Active Diffusion product they acquired from Zylight a few years back.
