  1. Hello! I didnt realize but I recently learned from an op you cant record from a dslr while running hdmi which is why my set up didnt work! The power worked, Im having to try to find a cable set up to run it through the micro usb on camera Thanks for the reply!
  2. Hello all! I recently started using a Nikon d600 dslr to practice with in a cam cage. I have it hooked up with a hdmi cable to a Black Magic HDMI to SDI converter and then SDI to sled. Everything works well and shows up on my monitor (a transvideo hd6) while in record mode on my camera but as soon as I hit the record button it stops displaying on the monitor and stops the recording on the camera. Anyone know what may be going wrong or solution on how to fix this? I also tried with a friend's canon and it was doing the same thing, im wondering is the converter the culprit and any solutions? Thanks all for any help, Joseph H.
  3. Hello! I recently was out in shoot in the desert when I noticed a clicking-like noise coming from what sounds like my gimbal, I own a GPI Pro rig if that info helps. Does anyone know any leads of what might be the cause of it? I noticed it particularly when i was walking with the rig. Thanks, Joseph H.
  4. Hello all! Im deciding between two types of batteries for my first pro rig, between Core's batteries ( https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1135054-REG/switronix_gold_mount_4x_hypercore.html ) and BCB (https://broadcastcamerabatteries.com/shop/monster-kit/?mount=v-mount). I've used Core before and love them, last long, convenient and easy to see what the battery life is at, usb plus ptap in them, but I wanted to hear from other operators who own Core or BCB batteries and what they think of them (particularly BCB). I can afford the difference but I'm wondering is the price difference between Core and BCB worth it? Thank you, Joseph H.
  5. Thank you all for the replies! Really helpful! In the end I went to Terry West for my power cables, Bought some hyperthin SDI cables from media blackout and bought some curly SDI cables from B&H along with a ptap extension cable and a ptap splitter. Adding all that to my previous cables I think it may be a pretty good starter cable set Thank you all for the replies :)
  6. Hello all, Looking for a camera cage to practice with a dslr set up, cant find any place online selling them so hopefully someone here is selling one cheers, Joseph H.
  7. Hello all again, I've recently built my rig part by part (pro) and I'm finishing up buying accessories. I know there will be a plethra of cables I'll be buying through out my career as there are different cables for different cameras and what not, but I was wondering what would you guys say is the standard cables to own as a new operator? Right now I have power cables for the alexa, amira, a p tap splitter, power cable for my monitor, and gonna buy a variation of lengths of SDI cables from Media Blackout. Also what other places do you guys suggest buying cables from (like power cables for Reds)? So the tldr of all of this is what is the standard cables a new op should own? Thank you for any info on this question, Joseph H.
  8. Thank you all for the input! I think I know now what direction to go buying a stand, i think i may go with the set up similar to what Lisa has, thank you all so much! As a steadi-newb I am super appreciative of the support I've found in this community :)
  9. Hello all, I noticed American Grip has multiple variations of stands for steadicam with different diameter footprint and other size differences, what size stand has worked best for you for holding and balancing your rig? Also I've seen multiple brands but what wheels have best worked for your stands? Im looking for the more heavy duty/off roading kind of wheels (not that I would use them for transporting my rig because of possibly damaging my rig from vibrations). Also what are the mounts to attach the wheels to the stand called and where would i find them? Or is this something I could ask for/buy at American Grip? Thank you for any help, Joe
