  1. Here are some of the reviews regarding the Flycam Redking https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l_r4k8TbGIQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5SGcUKltVQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HphIPPWzsGU
  2. Thank you both. Several reviews show the Flycam Redking almost identical to the latest Glidecam signature edition that costs 4-5 times more. Also, in terms of price Glidecam Smooth Shooter vest + Glidecam Devin Signature Gimbal cost around €2500. This is Steadicam Brand territory and actually more expensive than the Steadimate-S 15 and Ronin S combo.
  3. I am looking for the most affordable (but descent) option to purchase a new vest system for filming long takes(fiction filmmaking). It can either incorporate a gimbal or steadicam type. I do not mind spending some time learning to use it. But I would expect to be able to have good results after a couple of months. Mainly for dolly in/out and tracking shots. The solutions I have found so far are the following: Flycam Galaxy Vest + Flycam Redking ~ €600 Ronin S + Steadimate -S 15 ~ €1500 Ronin S + Flycam Galaxy Vest ~ €750. ( the problem with this solution is that it offers just s
  4. Well I am a member since 2009... I have posted few times. It is just weird, that I was allowed to create a new post and then not being permitted to follow up the conversation on my own thread!
  5. Thank you all. I think I have enough info to get me started. Alas, my camera is still the A7s. Currently no budget to rent.
  6. I am afraid I haven't heard of Joleko. Yes, I might need a reflector, although I'd rather fill any shadows with a small led. I have a Torchled Bolt. The model is going to be lying on the bed and the practitioner working on her with some metal tools. It's for a physiotherapy clinic. Initially I thought that direct lighting through a softbox would be a good option but thanks @androidlad for your tip. I have seen several videos online where red skin is too much. The big downlside is that with the rental price of 3 days of Aputure I can purchase a set of 2 softboxes with tripods an
  7. Thank you both. It seems that the aputure is very well regarded. I will try to rent this. Although we are shooting on a saturday and we'll have to pay for a weekend - more expensive- price. So from your recommendations I take it I shouldn't rent any softbox to come with it. Just bounce of walls/ceiling.
  8. I need some help with lighting a clip for capturing with my a7s. The client has asked for a white/ clean clinical look. I usually film with available lighting and use just a small bolt led or reflector for talking heads. Now I am a bit stressed as this might lead to more videos and want a good result. The location is a small room around 15m2 and one side has a large window which luckily has a white curtain that will prevent hopefully any burns. I will be shooting mainly medium shots of a model and techniques with tools applied to her and close ups. I don’t own any lights and wa
  9. A few years ago I produced and co-directed a documentary about a Chernobyl Liquidator and a mystical community he created on a remote Greek island. It touches upon his experience in Chernobyl as one of the events that led him to see life from a different perspective. The film was self funded and produced with great difficulty. It is not lush with fictionalised imagery and story, but very true and unique. If you are interested in the subject and find the trailer interesting, please consider renting it to watch it and support its creators. Cheers! https://vimeo.com/ondemand/immor
  10. Looking at the moondog labs one and was trying to decide about the case. I finally got the RhinoShield one with the 12.5mm. It should work better on a gimbal and easier to use. Other options are either unavailable or too expensive in Europe. That’s great insight. Thanks. I d love a case that would hold both the moment and moondog lenses, but not possible. From what I ve seen I like the moondog labs better for anamorphic. Indeed going the 37mm route is too much, I might as well grab my mirror less. Then again I don’t have an anamorphic lens for it... i think the RhinoShield
  11. Any suggestions between the 12.5mm thread and the 36mm thread? Is one of those going to be more stable or better aligning etc?
  12. Is there a website that people prefer for sourcing free music for using with their video content?
  13. Didn't have the time to read the thread, but was wondering how mark 3 colours compare to "normal colour rendition" cameras (as in canon/ nikon). I am still using my A7s mark 1 with its horrible AF and colours (no, eoshd profiles did not cut it), a purchase that was heavily influenced by this blog, and which I deeply regretted soon after. Lately, I have been considering the possibility of upgrading at a similarly priced system. So, does it come even close to Nikon d850 in terms of colour?
  14. @Mattias Burling Looking at the d500 and must say it is very tempting. It is essentialy an APSC d850 ! How do you compare the d500 you have with the d750 you were using? Also, I presume you only have it mainly for stills, but how do you compare the video between the two?
  15. horrible colors, horrible ergonomics, horrible AF, inability to properly AF with my canon lenses (need to go native, and I am not convinced to invest in Sony system - I am almost sure that when nikon or canon go mirrorless the result will be much better) 12mp barely OK (but around 20+ would be better for minor cropping), poor construction - feels like it is going to break during an accidental fall or some water spilling on it. even the most budget friendly AF lenses are TOO expensive compared to canon or nikon. I need AF for photography ridiculous batt
