Hello,

I'm assisting for the first time on a Moviecam SL. I'd be grateful to hear about other assistants' experiences with this system, about any quirks I should look out for, or any general wisdom.

Thanks in advance,

Emilio

If you weren't already planning to do so, it would be a good idea to spend some time at the rental house familiarising yourself with the system.

You can download the SL manual here:

If you're loading, fitting the film core onto the mag spindle properly can be a little tricky, so read up on that and practice it if you can. (It's similar to the coreholder in Arricam mags, if you know them.) It might also be worth checking that the digital footage readouts on each mag are working - the internal memory battery gets recharged when a mag is mounted to the camera, but may have died if it hasn't been used in a while. Though that should be something the rental house has checked.
