I just had a local machinist make up a set of new camera numbering cards, and it got me thinking that there has to be a better way to mount it than I'm doing it.
Back when I used notecards and black electrical tape, I would put a loop of tape, sticky side out, around my center post. I'd stick the card on just above the gimbal, and it worked fine. Still, it was rather low, and the talent couldn't always see it.
I would put them right over the lens, but that would block my ambi mic and the tally, so I'm having a hard time thinking where to out it. While I'd love to buy a 2-digit tally/number setup, I can't invest $1k in a tally just now.
Where do all you TV guys put your numbers?
I appreciate the help.
