Moviecam Compact to Panavision Millenium XL weight?
Posted 20 October 2005 - 02:16 PM
Just got a call, they need me tomorrow to shoot either with Arricam or Moviecam Compact. I don`t know if my EFP will handle it. Can someone tell me how does those cameras compare to Panavision Millenium XL in weight? More or less thesame, lighter, heavier? No accessories just cammera.
Thanks in advance.

The Millenium XL is heavier then the Arricam LT.
Don't have numbers in front of me...
Go with the XL or the Arricam LT and you should be fine.

(all cameras with 400ft mag, 400ft film, steadicam optics, Low mode bracket, Zeiss prime and clip on mattebox)
Moviecam compact: 29.5 lbs
Moviecam SL: 22.5 lbs
Arricam ST: 29.0 lbs
Arricam LT: 23.5lbs
If someone had similar figures for the Pv cameras and a few hd cameras im sure it would be helpfull to put them all together on a webpage, maybe on the steadicam guild?
Hope this helps you Marcin,

One other thing - I was doing run with 100mm and after running to a reception (it was police dept.) I had to make a stop and start with a smooth, slow dolly like shot. Suprisigly it looked ok!
For the first time I had a problem with my Seitz Follow Focus - the focus ring on the 40mm Hawk lens was so huge that my system could only do from 1m to 6m - I couldn`t go further on setup pots :/ My M28VP has a standard gear on it - maybe I need a bigger gear?
I don`t have any photos to show, because my assistant couldn`t be with me yesterday - another horror thing to teach a grip how to take care of you.
Anyway I have to find a buyer for my EFP and go for a bigger rig cause more and more I come accross 35mm in my work.
Thanks for info guys! Although I didn`t managed to read it before I leaft but I will have the data for the future.
Back to relax
