  1. That doesn't look like the Gh2 viewfinder on the last picture you posted of your rig.. What is that? Is that a zacuto?
  2. ​You were right, shoulder pad is terrible... I may try the one you got. Counterweight is nice though.
  3. And the dremel worked! It was risky for sure but I covered it with a lens cloth and rubber band. Blew everything off the back lens and then took the cloth off. The back of the lens is fine. Thanks for the help! And now my the lens works fine in the Gh2- but people should know if they buy the metbabones contax g to micro 4/3 adapter, with a biogon carl zeiss 28mm lens, they will need to cut the ears off to make it work.
  4. Sorry what is a drimmel? Cant find that on the internet? CAn you show me a picture of the tool you would use?
  5. How would I test it without owning the lens? I'm not in a good place where I can rent lenses, so I'm not trying to be snarky either but I was just looking for an opinion from someone who is experienced with shooting with two different lens manufacturers, on the same film.. But you are right, there are probably a lot more variables, I was just wondering if it was a big problem right out of the gate using these two lenses together. Maybe someone who has experience with these two lenses. Thank you!
  6. If I used an SLR magic 25mm .95 as one angle and then a voigtlander 17mm .95 from another angle, in the same film, would this look weird? Can you use two different brands of lenses like that? Will it be more super noticeable? The slr magic and voigtlander in particular.. Thank you!
  7. I did try and unscrew the rear lens mount but no luck. It seemed to fragile like all the pieces would fall apart... I am struggling finding the right tool to cut these ears off- without scratching my glass- anyone out there have experience with this?
  8. Thanks so much guys? Gini Rig it is. I hope the shoulder pad/counterweight isnt too bad..
  9. I can't decide between the Gini rig and this one http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IVIHDRQ/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3QGM6ILKNM1RM both have great reviews, Gini rig is almost triple the price. Is it worth it? What makes the Gini rig more money?
  10. ​Would you say the ginirig has upgradeability? I am leaning towards this rig now with the recommendation but still open to other options, and are curious what other gh2 users use for rigs! Show me!
  11. Thanks! Maybe I will just keep this fotodiox rig as my back up.. I can't really afford zacuto, but could you or anyone recommend another rig with off set rails? (Under $500)... Follow focus isn't TOO important- I'm really looking for some good stabilization that's smooths but still gives the handheld look.. Im im deciding between these three but will take other recommendations ! http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00MLNMQZG/ref=ox_sc_act_image_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A32RC70H1ZRC9F http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IVIHDRQ/ref=ox_sc_act_image_2?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3QGM6ILKNM1RM http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00D0LQUQY/ref=ox_sc_act_image_1?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=AJCV7FG5IT9ZY thank you!!
  12. I just bought this rig, is there a way to add 2 bars instead of 1? and Cinegain- can you recommend a good/better rig? and does anyone know of anyone selling just the counterweight shoulder pad? From something like this http://www.amazon.com/Koolertron-Shoulder-Camera-Stabilizer-Olympus/dp/B00OJXMMZA/ref=sr_1_27?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1421797695&sr=1-27&keywords=counterweight+shoulder+rig
  13. I recently purchased this rig http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0095PTKMA/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 which is pretty solid but the shoulder mount is super weak. I need some type of counterweight because the rig is pretty heavy as is.. Can anyone recommend a good counterweight that I could purchase online? something like this but just got the counterweight- http://www.amazon.com/Koolertron-Shoulder-Camera-Stabilizer-Olympus/dp/B00OJXMMZA/ref=sr_1_27?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1421797695&sr=1-27&keywords=counterweight+shoulder+rig Thank you!
  14. If anyone has any tips how to cut these ears off easily, that would be great! Im struggling trying not to scratch the backside of the glass..
