I'm not sure if there is a topic on here where you can post pictures of your camera, so I thought i'd just start one. I wanted to brag for a minute about my Arri S' recent makeover. I got her converted to 12v, then took her on a shoot and hooked up a video tap, which was connected to a wireless transmitter so the DP and Director could have their own portable monitors. This was also the first time she was able to use her 400' magazines, so that was cool, too. Make sure your wives/ girlfriends aren't in the room... they might get jealous...

I'd also like to see some of your cameras and the getup you have for them. Post them here

Very cool Gino.

What lens and lenses are you using? And who made the video tap you are using? Is it the type that attaches to the eyepiece of the viewfinder? Can you post a picture of the camera where we could see the video tap?

Thanks,

I only have 3 prime lenses (16, 25, 50) and we were switching between all 3. The video tap was rented from Alan Gordon in Hollywood (next to Paramount). It had a small Sony CCD camera hooked up to a simple rig that screws into the eyepiece slot. The image you see was taken with my cell phone because my digital camera broke and the quality of the photos with the rig isn't good at all. I took some with a disposable camera and will get that developed sometime early next week. I'll toss those pictures on as soon as they show up.

That's a big honkin' fluid head for a 16s! What was it, an O'Connor 100?

It was an O'Connor head... I don't remember what model it was, though. Overkill, yes, but it worked great!

Here is one from the back. You can see the video tap fairly well, but again, this was taken with my cell phone, so excuse the poor quality.

wow thats a sick setup but its way overkill for anything I'd do. If I had that cam I'd just use the 100' magazine with no sound sync or anything. I like it simple.

Here is my Eclair ACL S16 camera. It has a full set of Optar Illumina primes, a Zeiss 12-120 T2.4 zoom lens and a Kinoptic 5.7 mm lens. The motor is 4-75 fps crystal synced. It also has a B&W video tape, Matte Box, FF, etc. :) Eclair_small_CML.jpg

Okay Gino, here are my two cameras. The Arriflex 16SR (my production camera) is for sale so I probably won't have that much longer, and the Arri 16S is my personal camera and would be very hard to part with.

Wow, who makes the rods and mattebox for the K3? Also, is that a speed governor or something on the side..?

I'm shooting a short this weekend and I happened to take a quick snap of the A-Minima with my 20D while waiting for the sun to go back under a cloud. Note the Oppenheimer powerbase. It has a much smaller profile than the Aaton powerbase, but you sacrifice the rod's being at the proper height for any rod-mounted mattebox system. Clips-ons work well though. I very much recomend shooting with primes on the camera, I have a Canon 11/165, and I try to avoid it (great lens, just makes the A-Minima front heavy). My goal is to shoot as much of the film as possible with the one Zeiss 16mm. So far so good, I've only needed the zoom for one shot and as the rest of the film (85% of it) will be stolen shots on the subway, I doubt if I'll be taking the time to throw the zoom on.

That A-Minima belongs to my employer, but I used to own an Arri S, which I miss dearly. I had to sell it to finance my own film.

On a side note, I absolutly love my 20D... with a 50mm prime... it's all I need!
