Hi, my name is Nicholas Wiesnet and I'm a cinematographer at Chapman University. I have a lot of experience with film but hardly any with HD . . . I know, strange right? Anyway, I'm shooting an independent in a month and we'll have handheld work - best accessories for stability? Any recommendations on zoom lenses (I'm going to use microforce)? Can the Varicam take 35mm lens adapters? What's your favorite if so? On board monitor recommended for handheld?

Any cautions about the camera? What has been your experience? How is the latitude? I'm planning on using grad NDs for several sunrise shots - even worth it? If I want exteriors to have a grainy textured feel, like with the 5229, do I just increase the gain? What tricks in camera have worked best for you?

I know these are a lot of questions, but I like hearing personal feedback and experiences rather than trudging through the manual.

Cheers, Nicholas
