Over the past 8 years, I have worked as either a camera operator or utility on various Film/Reality TV and event productions. Soon I may make a push to get my feet wet in sports production.

 

I have set up a lot of camera systems, but I never had to set up a camera with the big “box” lens (such as a Canon DigiSuper 100) as seen in the photo, nor have I set up the housing the camera body sits in. If I work as a utility on one of these broadcasts, I am more than likely going to have to build some of these guys. I’m sure from prior experience I can figure out some things, but I want to be as knowledgeable as possible going into the gig.

 

So my question is… Is there any books/manuals/resources or rental houses that can show me how to properly unpack, assemble and break down this set up? Or anything else I should know about these powerful lenses. And better yet, if any of you have had experience with these setups, I would love to hear your input.

 

Thank you so much.

Joe

Hi Joe,

 

Don't know if you got any PMs about this post, but I can send you info about setup if needed, as I have worked with these beasts for many years.

 

Claus.
