I'm shooting a short on steadicam with the penelope that leads two characters up a steep hiking path. I want to get the camera and rig as light as possible. This is my first time shooting 35mm.
Cam power will come from sled - 1 dionic 90 through xlr 4 pin 12 volts cable
Preston will be powered off my sled zoom and focus
Lightweight zoom hasn't been chosen. Starting around 35mm and zooming to just over 50mm. The dp wants to shoot at f11 so we can get away with an inferior lens at that stop. Something light. Any suggestions?
I noticed there is a bridge plate that has the rod inserts. Will my pro plate fit on the camera sans bridge plate and dovetail?
Any vibration issues having only one spot to attach plate? (ie alexa vibration issues)
I'm going to have to compromise on balancing the rig to make up for film movement and zoom weight transfer. Any thoughts or suggestions?
Anything I'm missing here?
