We have such a fun time posting each other's cameras, I figured why not make a thread with pictures!

Rules of the thread:

- FILM CAMERAS AND FILM EQUIPMENT ONLY (one's and zero's not allowed)

- REDUCE THE SIZE OF YOUR IMAGES BEFORE POSTING (don't toss up a 5MB picture, it will break the server)

- TELL US ABOUT WHAT WE'RE SEEING AND WHY IT'S COOL (that's right, don't just post a pix, but give us a bit of background TO the pix so we can all learn)

- DISCUSSIONS ABOUT WHAT'S IN THE PICTURE ARE GOOD, JUST KEEP IT BRIEF (no 20 pages of discussions with 1 pix)

 

- MODEL NUMBERS/NAMES WOULD BE NICE TOO

LTR_steadicam_profile.jpgI'll start! This pix is right after I got my Aaton S16 LTR. I was helping some of my students with a project and they wanted me to shoot it. So there I was with a camera and NO monitor, whoops! I shoved my eye in the viewfinder and it wound up working. Stuff came out a bit shaky, but it was better then NO steadicam!

I love shooting on location and this pix comes from a recent commercial for Republik clothing that we shot in Venice. This is my XTR Prod + Super 16 camera with Optar cine prime, Chrosziel follow focus and extension viewfinder. Aaton did make a zoomable extension, but I haven't been able to find one.

Well here's another XTR Prod, this one paired with a Zeiss 10-110mm for some driving and car crash elements. The Aaton batteries we had could barely last an hour or so each, so we rigged a v-mount plate to the camera and switched to using my Anton Bauer Cine 150s instead - that was rather nice, because we'd use about 10% of a single 150w/hr battery for the entirety of a 12-hour day!

I always wondered about that. For some reason, Eclair NPR footage never seems as shaky as these Aaton cameras. Could be because of who is holding them but I don't know.
