Hi

I'm on a shoot for an advert soon on 16mm, I have very little experience with 16mm and was wondering if it is possible to hook up a clam shell to the camera, and how it is possible.

Thanks

First you need a video tap on the camera (video assist). This is the only way to monitor what the camera is seeing without looking throught the viewfinder. Once you have a video tap, you can hook up any kind of recording device that you desire...clamshell, VCR, studio deck, computer, etc.

Keep in mind that the signal is for reference only...it will have the groundglass markings and any other information visible through the viewfinder.

Hope this helps.

Respectfully,

Jeff Tanner
