  1. Also, I failed to mention any wisdom, advice, recommendations for this beginner are greatly appreciated!
  2. I agree! Roger, Charlie Rizek and Pete Cavaciuti did a stunning job with the camera work in this film. I love how each brought a different strength and skill set to the film in how they moved the camera. Sort of the ultimate example of tools existing to serve the story, and not the other way around. I love this video ARRI put together, despite being a bit of a sales pitch for the Mini LF, there are some great tidbits of knowledge here.
  3. Hey all! I'm a Los Angeles based Local 600 Camera Operator, beyond excited to be joining the Steadicam family. I've been camera operating for over ten years, and a few years ago added the Ronin 2 to my toolbox for lightweight remote head use, with the occasional handheld job. In the latter situation however, I would much rather be on Steadicam! I have training scheduled with Greg Smith (Steadicam Lessons) soon, and have started the process of hunting down components for the rig I'd like to build. Beyond that, I hope to start spending time in the rig doing music videos, short/student films, etc to start getting those hours in, along with additional training w/ Greg. Looking back I wish I'd made this jump a long time ago, but hey, better late than never, right? :) Cheers and thank you all for the wealth of knowledge already shared here on this fantastic site.
  4. Brian, you have the original Flyer, or the Flyer LE? Though it's not recommended, tests like these make me that much more confident in the quality and reliability of these systems.
  5. Charles, this is something I would definitely be interested in after I get my rig! I am in LA so if it is a local guy who does the mods, or if I can bring my rig in to someone, that wouldnt be a problem.
  6. Weight. A lot of friends own RED systems, and I would like to be able to fly those as well as larger shoulder cams like the F900, Varicam, etc. Even these are at the top of the Flyer LE's capacity, but it is really all I can afford.
  7. Sorry for all the questions being spread out over different posts, new things have been hitting me as I have been searching around the boards. I tried the search function for some of my questions, and didn't come up with anything, others led to pages which led to pages which eventually led to some discussion which helped. Thanks for the tips, Erik.
  8. Also, what is the easiest way to get power to the RED camera from the Flyer? Is it necessary to use a proprietary cable?
  9. Thanks for the great advice, Brian! What are the main differences between the V-Mount and Anton Bauer setups? I noticed it said the "Flyer LE model features an Anton Bauer Gold Mount for 3-Stud battery compatibility." The specs page lists this as an NP mount? This is obviously a different mount type than V-Mount, is there an adapter made for this? A friend of mine in the UK is developing an indie-friendly remote follow focus called the Hocus Focus, so I think that should cover any FF needs, what about wireless video assist? Is this usually something that is rented by production, or owned by the steadi-op?
  10. So what is the verdict there? Would the monitor still work for all intensive purposes? I notice in the "Items Included" tab they list some adapters to and from BNC to RCA, I am guessing that is how the signal would be transmitted? Any other accessories that are vital to get started with the Flyer LE? Can someone suggest a specific battery package to look into?
  11. Ok, that is what I was thinking. One other thing I noticed was on the BH page, the "specifications" tab lists the monitor as High Definition, while the "Items Included" tab simply says Color LCD Monitor. Does anyone know from experience if this is an SD or HD model?
  12. Hello everyone, this is my first post on these boards, and first off I would like to say what a great resource the site is for up and coming owners/operators like myself. I am looking into buying my first rig soon, and have been looking at the new Flyer LE system, what else should be taken into consideration when putting together a beginners package? Here is the link to the setup I've been looking at, feel free to add to the list with any/all accessories which will be needed to even get started. (Batteries, etc.) Look forward to hearing your thoughts. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/5538...zer_System.html
