Well hopefully by the end of the year and after pursuing dozens of people both at work and without... We´ll be making a little short film!!!
Now i know ill be using one of those Mini Dv cams like XL2 or PD 170s BUT i´d like to build a little jib arm (tis already designed and all.. in a couple months ill post sketches n pix) but if any of you would happen to know the weight of said cameras with matteboxes and such!!!
just to know the requirements of wood and stuff (hey its gonna be real preety and hopefulle, have a lifespan of like 3-4 years) BUT im not able to fnd the weight of the durn things !!!! im thinking like around 20#s but hell it could be overkill...
thanx for the nfo AND the help, and hopefully ill be back later with some nice situational reports and preguntas!!!

I'd say, more than the cameras (unless you're REALLY going to load them up with, say, onboard monitors and such), your weight should be determined by (1) how much you will be booming out, and (2) what kind of head you will be using. Just make sure you have a nice variety of weights at your disposal
