What the hell is a DSLR Baseplate Kit?

I'm waiting for their cell-phone baseplate. I hear it's amazing.

Wow! Those DOPs in the pictures look just like the typical DOPs I see on sets all the time.

Well, sans beer gut of course ;)

If by "revolutionizing the industry" they mean selling me a Letus Extreme that was a demo at NAB(which I had to send to back to Letus for calibration), but charging me the full price and not even doing me the courtesy of including everything that was supposed to come with it, then they are definitely living up to this claim...

I think the general idea is these new digital SLRs can shoot 24fps in HD resolutions are going to be revolutionary . . . we'll see, though some of the videos I have seen look pretty good.

Why...


so that you can take a really nice small compact mobile lightweight camera and turn it into a really big awkward heavy immobile cumbersome pain-in-the-butt camera!

I think the camera and lens cost 1500-2000 dollars. The matte box and tinker-toys cost over $5000. The wedding memories- priceless ;)

The new Canon 5DII does that. Apparently it is quite surprising!

Last I heard the 5D mkII only did 30 fps. Perhaps specs have changed?

Revolutionary? Looks pretty revolting to me (except for the hot chicks). Someone should Photoshop some nekked parts on the chicks and re-email it around.

Resistance is futile! Pretty soon, human civilization will have to surrender to her and, eventually, will be assimilated. :P
