Need Advice re Lipstick Cam for Bolex (Toronto)
Posted 20 September 2007 - 02:23 PM
I have a shoot coming up next weekend. My DP wants to do some Steadicam work, we will be shooting with my S16 Bolex RX5.
I am wondering if someone can advise me where I could rent a lipstick cam to use as a video tap? Any idea of cost? I am in Toronto.
Also might very well need to rent a Tobin variable speed motor, and a couple of RX lenses (> 75mm, 16mm) that I don't own. Where would I get these?? Does anyone have some of this stuff and would be willing to rent to me?

Setting focus "by eye" will be worthless, but you an at least see what you're doing while running the steadicam.

Dont undo the other two or face the possibility of the associated nuts falling into the internals - yuck!
please enjoy my professional photos:
Near on hopeless for focus - but fine for situations where the finder is otherwise a poke in the eye

Check out www.qvcvideo.com I got a helmet cam from them and it works for a video tap- you just need the right lens.
Bring yer cam by the studio in Toronto, we can test it out and figure out what you need.
