Today was a full 4K day, given the circumstances, I probably should start the day now with a Special K breakfast just to get in the mood. Packed two V-mount batteries, an S160 and S90 (160 and 90Wh 14.4V), a bunch of Canon L glass: the 70-200, the 100-400 and 16-35. Two Tiffen variable nd’s: an 82 for the 16-23 and the 77 for the other two lenses. Left the Zacuto half cage at home because it flexes too much and just took the Axis EVF mount. This can be used with the NATO rail on top of the Black Magic Production Camera (BMPC). Got a 90 degree angled BNC connector for the BMPC SDI out so it doesn’t poke me in the face whenever I go ENGangnam style with the recoil. As a bit of a joke and because I don’t like the hard coax cables I put an old yellow plugged video cable between the BMPC and the Alphatron EVF. Seems to work fine and the thin cable is nice and flexible, which is good.
It sounds like a good idea: Go to Brussels for a weekend, meet like minded people, talk about film making. And because it is Brussels this will include nice food and and a lovely city. Haroun from Filmmakers Corner had organised a workshop in Brussels with Philip Bloom.
