    Ah that's a very relevant thread to this conversation. The circle goes round and round.

    That Godox I linked - that's actually an attachment for a standard 7" reflector so maybe it's like what...

    Thanks, Peter. I wish we had time to rehearse so I actually knew what to shoot next, but it's not in the cards.

    I mount the camera to an L bracket and mount the bracket to the Ronin normally. It's...

    Doesn't it make sense to have differentiated units to exploit their various strengths? You might need a buttload of light sometimes (when high wattage and multiple units come into play) but sometimes...

    Ah, so I'm on the right track. There's no way I'll be using ballet shoes, though. I doubt those could even take a sharp object on the floor, and not everywhere that I walk will be safe for that. But...

    The laptop increases my productivity because I can edit with my baby napping on me, or at the playground with my 5-year old, or during downtime on a shoot. But yeah obviously you're gonna get more...

    24 in FF. 24mm is lovely wide in FF. I used an 18-270 in S35 quite a bit and frequently found it to be insufficiently wide for both cramped doc situations and for scenic wides. 16 in S35/24 in FF is...
  8. Anyone used the Ronin-S with xbox or ps4 controller?

    I'm considering getting a gaming controller for my Ronin-S because it seems like the only remote control I can find that will give me a rocker to control my focus wheel (which I am now using with the...

    It's only for ultrawides - ultrawides benefit from a low-angle because of the crazy keystoning that happens when they're tilted down.

    I totally agree - I love my Ronin-S for holding from beneath...

    Yes slider is better for close-ups because the gimbal can't solve up/down side/side or forward/backward swaying of my arms.

    But that's the nature of the beast of doing a continuous take. You're...

    Haha so true. In the last year I've been doing a lot of one-shot gallery walkthroughs where I follow an expert around in a wide shot and then move in close on the piece they're talking about. When...

    They still play 'Hide & Seek' except now they call it 'Active Shooter Drill'. (I'll probably go to hell for that joke)

    When I was in high school, my friends and I were not so imaginative. We just...

    I just got this and it seems that it quickly loosens and starts to flop. I dont want to condemn it to death because I havent used it on a shoot yet and it seems like you're supposed to periodically...

    Ugh. I hope it goes all the way to 24! 24 is wide enough for most situations I encounter but 28 is not, so those several millimeters save a lot of shots and lens changes. (Not that I'll be dropping...

    Yeah it's a holy trinity I think. The middle lens is the 16-35. The left is something like a 70-200. Judging by the size of the one on the right, I'm guessing it's a 24-70 or 24-105, something with...

    They will probably come out with a full-frame midrange zoom of the same caliber as their new autofocus cine 16-35, but who knows what the exact focal length range will be

    Maybe it's just me but I find next to no use for the touch bar. I'd much rather have those buttons in a fixed arrangement and not shifting around on me.

    Their loss may be someone else's gain. Residential housing costs are nutso in places like NYC and LA/SF. It wouldn't kill people if the housing stock increased from to converted office spaces. (Sort...
