Hello fellow Cinematographers,
This will be my first post on here (minus my introduction) and I hope its a good one.
I have been having problems with the optical block on my HDW-F900/3 and was very lucky to find a mint condition Panavision HD900F body on ebay for cheap. It arrives tomorrow (very excited) and my plans are to remove Panavisions front plate and install the stock plate from my HDW-F900/3 which has the B4 mount and control panel (which panavision made as a remote with a lemo cable.) My question is, is this going to be possible? I'm thinking the one hurtle i might have is the control board that hooks into the panel on the front of the camera which is located below the cooling fan for the sensor will not be installed in the Panavision version so i will have to transfer that as well. If the pin connectors to these things are not on the mother board, im pretty much screwed.
I know its been ahwile since these two cameras' heydays but I have to believe someone with some engineering background could help answer some of my questions before the camera arrives tomorrow.
