I will be working with this camera in a few weeks as a 1st AC on a pretty big, multi-camera shoot. I am reasonably familiar with it already but was wondering if there's anything else I should keep in mind that I might not initially know about. I plan to take it out at work and play with it to refresh my memory, and of course I will obtain a copy of the manual as well, but if there are any random pointers anyone can think of, it would be cool to hear them. Thanks!

If it's a multi-camera shoot, then one of your biggest concerns will be that all the cameras are set up the same (at least when they are supposed to be). This is the kind of thing that really should be worked out in prep, not only programming the cards or cameras, but also working out a protocol for changing settings in the field. There are a LOT of little menu controls on this camera, and one slip can come back to bite you. ;)

Not to worry, it's a great camera. Learn what the setups and looks are ahead of time so that you're prepared for the changes when the time comes.

I posted some of my thoughts about the camera's quirks on the project Loading Zone in the "In Production" conference.
