Yesterday I talked about the problems of using the Scarlet-X with a conventional HDSLR rig (or any other lightweight, handheld rig for that matter).
On the left (click on it) you can see one possible solution that will be offered by rig manufacturer Letus.
In a phone conversation with Letus president Hien Le Tu he made it clear to me that they had cracked their head open to get their design right.
You might have heard about the “MCS line” by Letus which they have also developed in collaboration with acclaimed Hollywood (and HDSLR) shooter Shane Hurlbut asc. They’re offering packages for Canon HDSLRs, 1Dx, FS100, F3 and now also Epic and Scarlet-X.
Dave forwarded this very well done funny video he made about the mark 3 buzz.
From Dave Dougdale’s website:
Chase Jarvis, Shane Hurlbut, Philip Bloom and Vincent LaForet have awesome blogs, if you are not already following these industry leaders you should definitely start soon.
I sent all of them emails days before I released this video to see if it was OK to use their footage and I enjoyed Philip Bloom’s response of, “Nice job Dave! Toilet is other way…”.
It’s my guess that Canon will announce the new 5D Mark III on Oct. 26 in NYC. Or perhaps Canon will release it at the Hollywood effect on Nov. 3.
Rumor has it that there will not be a 5D mark III as of this year, but instead an EOS 1D is expected (tomorrow Oct 18th) and a Canon large sensor video camera by Nov 3rd.
