I just bought one of these and would like to know if anyone has had experience with them as there has not been too many posts about them.

I posted this in a previous thread but I realize there's a new "What camera should I buy?"thread every day so it may have been looked over!.

I used one once in film school and it seemed to work fine; I vaguely recall it being a bit flimsy. I'd check it at various speeds to make sure it runs and the mags aren't scratching, and do a steadiness test.

Thanks for the info David...I'll have all that stuff checked out.

Looks like it will be a decent step up from K3! lol

Does it have a registration pin?

I sent the camera straight to Ian Love at Clairmont Camera.
He's going to check out the camera,clean and service it....before I decide to do any s16 conversion.Of course the servicing may clean me out! I only paid $1200 for it so if it needs some some work I really cant complain.

By the way I watched "Northfork" tonight. Great work!
I loved the dreamy look of it and I especially liked the mixed lighting shots with rays of light hitting the faces through windows.

Did you use large lights blasted through the windows to simulate sunlight or did you just shoot at the right time of day?

That was lighting, sometimes a 6K HMI PAR, sometimes a 2K Xenon.
