What do I need?
Posted 01 September 2005 - 03:52 PM
I've got a Super 16 MkIII Bolex EL. Fully Blimped. PL Hardfront Mount. Thru-View Finder Video Assist + 16:9 monitor. Several EL door mounted Batteries. Tobin crystal motor. 8mm Pelang. Set of S16 Mk1 Zeiss. Switar 14-112 Zoom. 4x4 Matte Box and Follow focus.
What else am I going to need (camerawise) to shoot a micro-feature? Any advice would be greatly apreciated.

Don't know if you'd count a good tripod and lightmeter as "camera-wise" stuff, but both will come in handy.
And you'll obviously need a few thousand feet of film. If you're on a tight budget, I find Fuji stock tends to be less expensive than Kodak.

Got a good set of heavy-weight Miller Tall and Short legs (still got to get hold of a decent fluid head).
What lightmeter would be best for the Bolex?
...and yeah, Fuji is the route I'm going to have to take.

You should surround yourself with good camera people and lighting people
They'll help you immensely
As for a lightmeter
I recommend the Sekonic 508Cine of the 608Cine
There's also the latest model Sekonic 558Cine
They're all both Spot and Incident meters in one
They have LCD readouts and even allow for radio transmitters.
& They all have the capability of adjusting the shutter-angle
Which is useful when shooting with a Bolex.
Check 'em out.

Thanks a million.
