    After Cinegear get together

    Saturday evening after Cinegear a bunch of operators will be getting together at Fat Dog on Fairfax. It's a bar/restaurant. I've set up a happy hour deal on booze that starts when we get there. Just tell the bartender you're with me and you get the discount. The food is very good, and so are the drinks. Please spread the word. Everyone is welcome to join. I hope to see everybody there.

    Is Victory Battery still open?

    I called the number I used to have for them and it's not working. Anyone have a new number for them? If not, is there another good receller in town? Thanks.

    Import tax (UK to US)

    I found this website which seems legit: http://www.dutycalculator.com/ It says steadicam has an import duty rate of 2.5%. Does this sound accurate to anyone who's done this before? Brad

    Import tax (UK to US)

    Anyone know what the import tax into the US is? I'm considering buying some used gear from someone in the UK and would like to know what to expect to pay. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Brad

    Arm squeak fix after shooting in rain

    My master series arm is squeaking pretty badly after shooting in heavy rain the other night. I need some recommendations to get rid of the squeak. Is ACF50 the way to go, or something else? Should I have it serviced? Thoughts? Thanks.

    First time with the F65

    Looks like an Alexa clone.

    First time with the F65

    Thanks for the info guys. In a surprise last minute twist the decision was made to shoot with Alexas, so I won't have to deal with this quite yet. If anyone else has anything to add, please do. I'm sure I'll need the info eventually and it will probably be helpful to others as well.

    First time with the F65

    Hey guys, I have a pilot coming up with an F65 and since I've never flown one I thought I would ask for any tips and advice anyone has regarding the camera, for steadicam, handheld and conventional operating. Can you use onboard batteries? What power and run/stop cables do I need? Thanks in advance for any tips. Brad Grimmett
