  1. I go between x mount lenses for small jobs, and PL glass on bigger ones.
  2. Mine arrived in Aus a couple of days ago. Camera still a few days away however very impressed with how solid the build is while keeping it very light compared to its competitors.
  3. Here are the Redback photometrics. Not sure how the small Mozzie compares as I haven't used it - https://www.hudsonspider.com/photometrics As for configurations I've used it in all kinds. For interviews though if I have the space I'll run it bounced into a 7' umbrella, or in standard configuration. Check out their instagram for a bunch of different uses - https://www.instagram.com/hudson.spider/ Some of the accessories are designed more for gaffer use with various rigging and space for storage however can be scaled back to simply the light head on a c-stand arm.
  4. Another option if it's just carry on would be a Carpetlight. Not cheap but packs down extremely small. https://www.carpetlight.com
  5. Depending on how portable you need, look at the Hudson Mozzie. While the unit and ballast aren't tiny, you won't need any extra grip or frame work. I've been travelling with my Hudson Redback for the last year and regularly all I take is it and one stand. Mozzie is the half sized version.
  6. DXL2 has the same sensor as the Monstro VV so coverage would be the same.
  7. @Erik A., here are some tests I did with my TLS Leica R's on a DXL2, Mini LF and Venice to check coverage.
  8. @Nezih, that's a very good point. I have always had that issue with my Varicam LT EVF mount. Never been able to get it far enough away to operate comfortably when balancing for front heavy package (and pushing camera back).
  9. Great news @Tim - Bright Tangerine, if I do end up with one of these cameras I'll be very keen to check it out and add it to the list. The weight, or lack of is what really excites me about this setup.
  10. Thanks Tim for the info. Will be keen to check it out once available. Juggling act between keeping the shoulder pad low while trying to get it central on the balance front, particularly with a reasonably heavy lens where you want to slide the camera further back on the shoulder. Additionally do you know what viewfinder mount is on that particular rig? On the lookout for options additional to the one the EVF comes with. Anything BT may be looking at? Cheers, Mark
  11. Hi Tim, do you have, or are you looking at any integrated shoulder pad solutions? On the lookout for options that don't take the camera too high.
