I am buildin my camera gear package and have some questions.
There are some visual thing I want to do like streaks in shot by defasing the shutter, compensating exposure when I do speed ramps by shutter change during shot.
I am looking at the Gold II camera which can change shutter and ramps fps with accesories but the speed ramp is not crystal sync which for me is ok because it will be exteriors.
The other camera I am looking at is the millenium which has all this possibilities built in. As well I will be doing some steadycam shots.
Any one can comment me on their experience with his cameras?

I believe the Millennium will allow you to the manipulate the shutter timing fairly easily.

Since the film gets pulled down for such a short time compared to how long it stays still, the streaking mainly affects highlights and bright parts. It is very visible, but not completely blurry as one would have expected. Only problem is you can't see thorugh the lens, so you have to set the shot up beforehand.
To access that function you have to go in to the service menu on the Arri, something an experienced camera tech/serviceman/focus puller can do. If they're in a good mood they'll let you have the secret buttons to press. I'm afraid I can't divulge them since I was sworn to secrecy by the guy I got them from.
