Hi all

I am PMing a film in the UK and we have to use the Viper cam as part of our deal with a financer. Unfortunately there are no Flash Mags with the package. This means I have to hire them seperately.

I have tried the usual suspects arround the UK to no avail. I am told that you can get an addaptor for the D20 flash mags but there are not enough of them to cover the arri fleet of cameras so they wont rent them out (not even sure if this info is correct)

I am now at the stage of looking worldwide.

I have tried Plus 8, Camera House and various others but am having no joy.

Does anyone out there have any suggestions as to where I can get these ?

Also if anyone knows whether the D20 mags can be converted that would be very helpful also as it may give me another rout to try.

Many thanks in advance
Stephen Burt.

You might have a look at S.two. They work with Viper, though they're disk rather than RAM based.

Hi John

We are using the S.Two system for all our non steadicam work but we are looking for Dmags for the steadicam work we are doing.

Cheers
