Hi Everyone, This is our first post on Steadicam Forum. We are a rental house with offices in both Portland and Seattle. I was wondering where else people are renting gear when they come to shoot in the Pacific NW. Do you usually find owner/operators, bring in gear from out of town or rent locally? Wondering what we can do to spread the word that we are here and have a large inventory of gear for rental. For more information on us, visit Koernercamera.com
Hello all, I'm starting a job in a few days with an "AMIRA Premium" body. First time using the camera. I found that it's a new power cable so I'll just run it with an on-board battery this time. Our lenses are SuperSpeeds and we have a CamWave transmitter, so my guess is that it will be back heavy. Is there an AMIRA steadicam or cheese plate I need to ask for to balance this out properly? What else do I need to know going into this? Thanks in advance, Jerry
Anyone tried this setup? I have an upcoming shoot with an Amira setup with CP2's, C-motion running one motor and video link. With the Amira body being approx. 4.1kgs, the CP2's weighing about 1 kgs each, with batteries and accessories I would probably be pushing 10kgs. I can consider losing the mattebox to lower the weight, but I thought I'd check with you guys if any of you have experience with this setup, or if you think it's simply a bad idea to even try. I can alternatively access an Epic which I know for sure I can fly on the Zephyr, but would be interested in trying to rig up the Amira, if possible of course. Also I'm assuming I would have to run power off the camera battery unless I can power the Amira with 12V from the Zephyr. Any thoughts?
