  1. I do luv that 1DC look. I can't risk buying a used one with a hot pixel issue! Spending $1700 - $2500 for a used Canon 1DC, and if you get unlucky with the hot pixel, you're stuck with it. I think I'm going to buy the Nikon D850 with an extended warranty. I think I'll be happy with that camera.
  2. The Zacuto does cost a few dollars, but you will be very glad to have spent the money when it comes to monitoring your image and keeping everything sharp, and well exposed. I use the Gratical HD it is a little large and powers from a Canon LP E6N for a long time, or when I"m working with an Anton Bauer system camera I use a D Tap. The features in the Gratical are many and you can customize the features you need. The plus with the Gratical HD versus the Gratical Eye is you can power the unit from one Canon LP E6N and also use SDI or HDMI to connect to your camera, the outputs also loop through for another device if needed. I paid $1250.00 used, with an Axis arm a year ago. For outside, or anywhere you will be glad you have it.

    merry christmas

    Merry Christmas all! I hope everyone has a great 2019. EOSHD is pretty much my third website I visite everyday
  4. Ed, this is on par with Spinal Tap and Best In Show. You have a great sense of humor combined with an awful lot of creative talent! These tests are fun and informative.
  5. Stick with a good condition used or overhauled: Sachtler, OConnor, Vinten, Cartoni. Those fluid modules in these heads are worth the extra cash!
  6. Those Jem Ball units are a work of art! I like the adapter for the Joker 200. They still make the Jem Balls here in LA. I bought three Jem Balls last year. Come to think of it I also bought one of your old, well used Dedo 1x1 Led lights ( has your logo on it ) I Still use my Kino 4x4 and 2x2's a lot. I love my tungsten 150w Dedo lights. And I kept my old 400 and 200 Joker par's, for punch. I still burn my fingers once in a while on these hot lights?
  7. Oliver, what was your playback sync method? Did you use timecode for playback.
  8. Be sure to use one of the A or B top BNC outputs for the RGB 444 I don't think it comes out of the SDI BNC on the side of the F3.

    C300 vs F3

    I thought we all covered this Sony F3 and Canon 100-300 pretty intensely on the last redimp thread?
  10. I wonder if Canon would fix the pixel if it was sent in from someone other than the original buyer? I'm itching to buy a used 1DC but only if I can get a pixel blemish fixed if it shows up and not be charged for a new sensor? $2-3K for a used camera is not peanuts, and god knows what they charge for new sensor in the 1DC.
  11. I don't know how Canon deals with the pixel? You can check out a long thread on DVXUSER about the pixel problem someone had with the 1DC. http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?333479-Dead-Pixels-random-errors-terrible-support-anyone-else&highlight=canon+1dc+pixel
  12. That was lucky! In the old days of CCD's and my Sony BVW 400, and 600, I had to send the camera in for pixel remapping. Most pro cameras now have the ability to remap the pixel problems without a visit to the service center. It was horrible to get any footage back and have a hot pixel ruin the footage.
  13. Dave, and Olly, You both bought your Canon 1DC used, have either of you had any noticeable pixel issues at any ISO? the only thing that ever put me off the 1DC was some of the nightmares some owners had with pixel problems and repair of them as the 1DC doesn't have a way to remove those pixels when they show up. Just would be such a pain to spend close to $3k and have this problem come up. It sure does put out a lovely image.
  14. Some nice frame grabs John. Olly, I like the shape cage for the Q7+ and the 15mm adjustable rod mount, but what I've been using and it works very well is one of these 1/4 -1/8 with Arri rosette adjustable plate, cheap as chips and works! https://www.ebay.com/itm/ARRI-Type-Rosette-Cheese-Plate-Mount-Baseplate-fr-DSLR-RIG-15mm-Rod-Support-GH4-/361508743028?hash=item542b99a774:g:tbUAAOSwP~tW4neq
