Alexa Vibrations

Hello guys,

 

I've been working with the Alexa lately and on viewing the rushes have found small but very fast vibrations - at first we thought it was the remote iris control; as it seemed to happen when the DP racked it. It was not noticeable whilst operating I.e no vibrations felt down the post (using the Ultra rig). Any theories welcome here. Thank you.

Hello Benjamin, thanks for the reply - I've been investigating the situation with rental companies and other Steadi Ops. It was the way the camera was mounted to the rig, not locking the back pin. Now another question - if you were a 'day player' on a long running production using the Alexa; who would supplying the correct Alexa plate fall down on? The operator? Or the rental company?

Regardless of who supplies the plate you must ask yourself do you want to be remembered as the operator whose footage had vibration? I always went out and got what I thought would make my work better. That being said, I never had an issue with Alexa vibration using stock PRO dovetails.

Ah yes but the problem was not that I didn't have an Alexa dovetail plate (I did) it was the Alexa wedge BP-3 that was missing on the kit - this is something I would expect only the Facilties conpany would supply. Unfortunately not in this case.
