looking for a 2perf camera
Posted 28 May 2008 - 09:41 AM
I today found myself in a situation I thought was nearly impossible.
I´m in preproduction for a feature and we find out today that
the camera we boked will be four! weeks late. Crazy I know, the camera are for some reason stuck on a shoot in russia. Help!!!!!!!!!
Any ideas where we can get another sync 2perf for our first weeks.
We need the camera from 12th june-4th july.
Highspeed serie also of interest.
The shoot is in sweden but the hole europe is of interest.
Of course we can go 3perf the first weeks but budget is tight and I really need that extra
Any ideas, please!!!!!!

I know about the arricams, but the problem is that they are a bit expensive,
in that case it´s probably more economic to rent an older camera and go 3perf.

Have you contacted Anders Banke? firstname.lastname@example.org
Perhaps that's who you are renting the camera from that's going to be late, I don't know. Last I heard he had about 6 Kinor bodies converted to 2 perf.
I have one of his conversions (2 perf, vid tap and modern electronics) and it is a very nice piece of work. The Kinors are limited to 40-50fps for speed unfortunately.
I could rent my rig to you, but I think the shipping costs to and from Los Angeles would equal or exceed the additional costs of shooting in 3 perf.
Good luck and let me know if I can provide any addtional information that would be helpful.

Yes, it`s anders Bankes cameras that´s going to be late, all of them kinors and bl4!
I will have the producer to check shipping costs and contact you if.
Thanks alot for trying to help us out.
