Hi my next job is with an arri lite lt I thought was a light camera in the manual said 5k(ligther than the red) and now I went to check and I weight it and is like 8 kilos (17 pounds)just the body and eye piece + 3 kilos magazine (6 pound) + accesories
is gonna be over 14 kilos and the shoot is gonna be really complicated in a jungle trail with clif on the side so I wanna be walking thithout so much strees.
there is any way to take the eyepiece section off????? wich is huge and I thing is gonna make a big change in the camera weight.
somebody work with tha camera before??? advice?
thanks
Luciano

A video top as per most film cameras should do the job and cut off all the weight of the optical finder.

Don't forget to ask for it.

Hope it helps

You should ask for the "100 percent video top" which will allow you to replace the not very heavy optical viewfinder and supply you with a low mode bracket as well.

Like Doc said, make sure to get the 100% video top - this lets you lose the eyepiece and optical block. Also make sure to get the 400’ steadicam mags (not the regular 400’ ones), and the low-mode bracket. Make sure they also get you a clip-on mattebox and you’ll be good to go.

thanks so much for the advice guys but I dont gonna be able to get the 100% video because the production company that I work with own the cameras and they never worked with steadicam before so they just have the accesories for shouder mount only. by the way we are in the philipines shooting so we can no rent it. im pretty much fucked hahaha, but is ok we are shooting in 2 weeks that scene so I will star training and carrie the camera like it is. over 30 pounds and I weight 156 p.
one other question if I take the whole video and eye piece out I dont gonna have any plug for my monitor right?
thanks

Luciano,
The camera is really quite light, even with the optical block intact.I am not sure about the exact weight, but I don't think you need to be overly concerned .It balances very nicely and is ( I think) one of the lightest sync 35mm cameras around. I think you will enjoy working with it.

Sincerely

Sanjay Sami
