Photo Cine Expo was a great experience for Team C5D. We really appreciate all of the comments and feedback from the viewers. The Expo was held at the Los Angeles Film School here in Hollywood. It was a crazy two days, we were lucky enough to get the scoop on the new RRM EVF and also got to check out some other gear ready to finally hit the market. The new 5″ Marshall monitor is kick ass. We were also really impressed with the tiny Que Audio Eng kit. We are going to put that little bad boy up against our Sennheiser MKE 400 this week. We brought in a little extra help from El Skid and Chris Marino. They were the coolest. The best part of the expo was the community that has formed around the cameras. We were sharing gear all weekend long with everyone there. That is what makes this so much fun. Thanks to all the C5D viewers for your support. We could not do this without you. We are headed to Dv Expo in Pasadena to hunt for more cool gear to show you.
James Lee from 16 X 9 Inc. shows off the new DV balancer rig from Chrosziel. The rig is super lightweight and has a very simple system of keying into the Chrosziel DSLR baseplate making it a very fast change from studio to handheld mode. We really dig Chrosziel AKS and use them on a regular basis for Cinema 5D.
Snehal Patel from the DSLR Bootcamp was kind enough to answer a few questions about his workshops. The DSLR bootcamps have been a great resource for filmmakers getting into the HDSLR game. Snehal is a Director and Cinematographer who shares his real world experiences with his students to give them one of the best workshops money can buy.
