since nobody has started a cinegear thread....


The Arri 235... Sexiest steadicam camera to ever be built $75Large gets you a Body that does 60FPS, 3 mags, a great viewfinder and the arricams IVS! steadicam mode with a 400 435 mag, a 27mm prime, low mode bracket and clip on matte box... 16lbs!!!

The Panavision Genesis HDCam Aside from the lack of NTSC Downconverter and the Funky dual 12/24 volt requirement the HD Cam/Recorder has FINALLY Gone prime time. Dan Kneece and I talked to Al Mayer about the lack of Downconverter and funky batt requirements and if you see this camera tomorrow PLEASE hammer on those two points. Having not flow it I will say from the looks and hand holding holding the camera this will fly much MUCH better then that freaking 900 Pig that we have been saddled with.

Walter Klassen... well folks I'm finally in the back mount camp, yup the Kustom Klassen vest that Walter built for me ROCKS. I hear that Rich Davis and a few others also tried it and really liked it. The new front system which allows you to change the tip of the belly plate really makes a HUGE difference in comfort.

MK-V Howard is showing the new Gimbal and 2" post. The Gimbal is probally the best gimbal that I have ever encountered. The new Monitor (a Hummingbird) is as Mr. Baldwin said "Pretty F**king cool" TOTALLY Daylight viewable. There are other things going Round at Howards but you will have to ask someone in the T-shirt with the interesting logo on the back....

Car Mounts also seem to be the big thing this year with some amazing things.

Now I must get sleep, tomorrows going to be a long and fun day, Hope too see lot's of you there.

I took a few shots for the interest of some non-Steadicam folk. At at least they were pictures of the gear. I gave up after Denis Moran insisted on hunting me down and handing me seemingly dozens of Stella Artois each afternoon.

Thanks Charles, that´s at least some good pictures.

The Genesis looks impressive, but also in Handheld mode/ Steadicammode a big beast, like a Moviecam compact or the size of a 535b

Any news on the power consumption of this camera? Do we need 4 or 5 batteries on the rig now?

hey rob- we (kenji luster, rich davis, jim bartell, tom gleason and myself) had a conversatin about the power consumption question with panavision. thye were aware of the needs and evasive about a real answer. basically, it's still a prototype and they have no idea. they are trying though. they are aware of our field needs. also, the "magazine" record deck can be cabled out and be worn by the operator or a.c. or left cabled way behind if weight and or size is of major concern. they will have more answers soon. oh, and the eye piece was as good as i have seen on an hd camera. still a way to go though before it matches optical. but really a step up over the varicam i have been using. just my small observations.

geoff

p.s. have you been working for any of the singapore companies yet? let me know if yo are and i'll send my hellos through you, if you don't mind.

Still trying.... although there are plenty of productions, the budgets are mostly low and as things like Steadicam are often the icing on the cake, we get scraped off in an early stage.
If I get there I will say Hello (so whom BTW?)

Hi Geoff,

I'm still around in Singapore, do you need to said Hello to anyone that you know?

I can do it on your behalf.

Do you need any more jobs from a dot in the Globe?

:P

Hi Rod,

How are you? There are some stuff pending, if confirmed will let you know. Please take care of yourself.

Sincerely,

David
