I thought I would post this, from Mandy.com:

"You know your way round the middle of the HD camera market , and have
made more than one feature film using either a Varicam, CineAlta,
Viper, Arri D20, Genesis or a Dalsa camera. Ultimately the informed
decision on which camera is used will be yours, versus our budget! Not
knowing these cameras as well as you, all we can specify is that we are
keen to record straight to hard drive, and are shooting far more
exteriors than interiors. You are keen to push 'the HD envelope'. You
adore wide angle, DOF, and are experimental with angles, aesthetics,
and method. You want an opportunity to exhaust your talent in a
challenging environment. You will be shooting a small feature film in
North India for approx. 3 months, travel and expenses paid, with the
possibility of a small salary, but the adventure is why you want to do
this. You will be working with a first time director.
Please do not reply to this advert if you do not fit the
above criteria."

I'm not quite sure why someone with experience of shooting more than one feature with a Genesis/D20/Dalsa (is there anyone with this experience?) would want to work for nothing on this film, but just in case....

Well according to a recent Panavision add in AC Dean Semler shot both 'Click' and Mel Gibson's new film on the Genesis. But I'm not sure if these were all-HD shoots as I was told by my ARRI rep that on 'Click' Arri rented them Arricam STs as well.

I'd probably take it, if I could get it.

there was a post on mandy or craigslist, don't remember which, a little while back from a production looking for a private genesis owner so they could rent one for cheap!
