REDpooliRIG for BMPCC

I really like some aspects of your design. It reminds me of several rigs meant to duplicate the Aaton, but those are either DIY rigs or kind of expensive and a bit silly.

 

What I like most is the lightweight but sturdy take on a top handle. Leaving it hollow makes it easy to run cables, as you've done. Also, mounting the EVF or monitor on the handle makes a lot of sense to me, especially if it were mounted with an upgrade from a friction arm to something more sturdy and easily reposition-able, like the Edelkrone Monitor Holder or the simple 15mm cross-rod of the Lanparte BMPCC Rig. I tend not to trust hanging a field monitor off either a shoe mount or a friction arm.

 

Having essentially 2 vertical cheeseplates is also great for mounting additional equipment, and I like that they're as wide as the rods, for a big shoulder pad and room to mount internally, if desired.

 

My biggest concern would be with the center of gravity, which ideally should sit right over your shoulder. I doubt that the Sony NP power supply is heavy enough to offset the glass/monitor/mattebox/cam in front of your shoulder. Couldn't you move the camera up and back, and attach the handle to the very rear to get a less front-heavy rig?

      Hey guys,
      I have a SpeedBooster for the Pocket and the Micro for sale, Canon EF lens version.
      Asking price is 450€
      I'm in Italy and I can ship to Europe for fair prices and even WW if needed (postal or UPS).
      BTW I also have a brand new Wooden Camera cage for the BMMCC plus the Wooden Camera PL Mount Pro kit for it in another thread

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?

      Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 25mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter.
      Nippon Kogaku Japan Cine-NIKKOR 10mm F/1.8 wide angle lens. Close focus up to 1 foot / .3 meter.

      Bought on eBay, used with C-Mount to Micro Four Thirds lens mount on Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. 
      Optically in excellent condition. Inside no specks of dust, haze, oil scratches that I can detect. Clicks work as expected. Focus is smooth.
      Cosmetically clean on outside. Very good for its age. 

      Close focus up to 2 feet / .6 meter. Very light weight, and tiny size. Smallest lens I've ever owned. Paired with BMMCC or BMPCC this makes a fantastic combination. BMMCC / BMPCC is super 16 sensor so I didn't need a speedbooster, and no vignette. I would expect to see vignetting on any sensor size larger than super 16.

      EXTRA
      Comes with a 40mm Switar C-mount lens, Metabones MFT to C-mount adapter.
      SELLING as a complete set. Asking $570 OBO.

      Hi,
      I've got a BMMCC for sale. I've only used it three times.
      It comes with 6 batteries and a charger, and a Smallrig cage.
      Another equipment I'm selling is the Metabones Speed Booster for BMPCC.
      Both are in great shapes. No signs of use on the Micro, and the optics of the metabones is perfect.
      Price is 750 euro for BMMCC and 400 euro for Speed Booster.
