Hi all
I have a day coming up soon on a pilot with a Sony 1500 camera (whatever the fack that is) with smpte fiber. Anyone have a short jumper I can beg, barrow or steal for Friday Feb 8th?! I hear these cables are about $800 to $1000 for a 4' to 6' jumper...it's a favor for a friend so I'd rather not have to buy one just for one day or fly with the full size cable which seems to rival my extension cords in my garage in both size, weight and inflexibility.

Can offer booze, food, or loaner sheep to keep you company in the absence of the afore mentioned cable.

Thanks, Ron

On a Pilot??? We'll you've reached the upper weight limit of that rig with just the body of an HDC-1500 let alone the Lens and Camera Plate plus the fibre jumper weighing you down. Or am I confused?

Phil

Just realised you probably mean pilot show rather than Steadicam Pilot. Sorry

So, I'll throw this question in here,

Does any of you know where I can buy an smpte fiber extender cord? I've tried googling but can't find any place to buy from :(

Any suggestion on a website or a manufacturer?
