    That's very kind but if I really knew what I was doing, I would have had the foresight to bring my whole filter pouch instead of just the one filter! ; )

    The combination of the Canon focal reducer with the 24-105mm f/4 lens was a big factor in my decision to go with the C70, and I'd highly recommend it if you ever find yourself with an RF mount body...

    Just noting it in case the images look soft due to diffraction. I only had a 2-stop ND filter with me and it wasn't nearly enough.

    There is a 'Remote' terminal on my C70. The manual says that it can be controlled with the astronomically-priced Canon RC-V100 or "commercially available remote controls". No mention of LANC...

    What I meant is that I don't think any of the more recent Canon cinema cameras have a LANC interface.

    A little update here. Thanks to all of the advice and pointers and observations in this thread, I ended up buying two new rigs: the Dougmon (with the sling) and the Varizoom Media Rig. I haven't used...

    I recently bought a GH1 to play around with. Sometimes it's fun to go back to the older bodies and be reminded of what we had available to us a decade ago. It kind of puts into perspective what we...

    Oh, man. Creating depth will be tricky. And you have pretty much zero space for staging gear.

    The building outside is like a giant beadboard, which means that your light will be soft from the get...

    I used to drink that stuff when I lived in Japan. It's been 25 years, but I think the milky white flavor of Gatorade has some similarities. I'm pretty sure you can find it at any H-Mart these days....

    Thanks for the detailed response. This is the most current information on this rig on the internet. Glad it's still working well for you and serving your purposes!

    Based on your reels, which are great, I don't consider myself "a few steps up the ladder" from you. But I'll share some thoughts and observations.

    We live in a time when DPs are a dime a dozen,...

    Good breakdown! Scores more points for the monopod.



    See, this is what I'd be concerned about. It's already hard enough to get around as it is.



    My favorite and always my first choice....

    So, another vote for the EasyRig. Fair enough. And it doesn't look like I could cheap out on the Flowline either. I came across a review that showed specifically how it doesn't work for taller people...
  14. Thanks for all of the great responses so far. I...

    Thanks for all of the great responses so far. I have a Benro monopod with a swivel base and it performs well enough. Definitely transfers the weight. I've shot two weddings in my life and the monopod...
  15. Go-to rigs for longs days of handheld work?

    I'm operating a C70, which weighs about 7lb with lens, battery, and shotgun mic. I currently have a couple of improvised solutions that are great for controlled situations where I can periodically...

    We made this today, committing to the full two-hour simmer. It is very, very tasty. It might be the best I've ever had. Thank you so much for sharing. We doubled the recipe so that we can get a few...

    Looks great! Made me hungry just watching it. I have never made it quite like that, especially with the long simmer time. I'll see if I can convince my fiancee to make it with me this evening.
  18. I thought that the original C100 was great for...

    I thought that the original C100 was great for documentary work with its small form factor, NDs, and center-weighted AF. I haven't used the C70 for doc work yet, but I suspect that it would be even...

    Yeah, I have no idea if this would be practical for video. I didn't know that BM already did something like this with the original Ursa (which explains its size). This is a new idea to me. By this...

    Cooled cameras

    I have done a lot of work with a particular thermal imaging company and I'm familiar with the concept of an actively cooled sensor. I never thought that this kind of technology could be applied to...

    I thought the whole point of an expensive RAID array was that this kind of thing was, statistically speaking, nearly impossible. Any idea what caused it?

    @ozmorphasis

    Thanks for the info. I have two Lightstorm LS1s, and I could swear that they are warmer than daylight. Between the pandemic and a good run in 2019 with budgets for a gaffer, I haven't...

    Am I deluding myself by thinking that two 200ds on a double/triple header punched through a 4x4 will yield a similar output to a 300d ii? If I buy them, I also fully expect that I may need to swap...

    Thanks, @morgan_moore. You seem to have the ins and outs of this down and I may very well take you up on your offer. I have purchased something from you before and it's a quality piece of gear. I...

    Thanks, Paul, for sharing some of your knowledge on this topic. I've looked into having someone else do the design to my specifications but so far it's been prohibitively expensive. And I could be...
