genus hurricane rig, questions

Hi,
I want to buy a genus hurricane rig from New York. Can anyone help me with info ? B&H and AbelCine don't have it listed in their website even though they are listed as dealers in Genus's website.
For those that already have it ; is it possible to fit in front of the rig a quarter wave retarder at 45 deg?
Thank you very much for your help,
Eugen

Re: genus hurricane rig, questions

We are developing an upgrade mirror box that can take a quarter wave retarder. We will have the first examples of these at IBC in September. The upgrade hood can be retro fritted to any Hurricane Rig.

Re: genus hurricane rig, questions

Thank you very much Alister.
I appreciate that you'll design something compatible with actual HR models.
Would you be so kind to help me with two infos in this respect;
1. what will be the dimensions of the qwr filter?
2. can you recomend me a shop that sales quarter wave retarder filters in Toronto or New York?

Thanks again for your help
Eugen

Re: genus hurricane rig, questions

There are no shops that simply sell quarter wave retarders that I know of. Genus will be supplying a custom produced retarder designed to work at the correct angle to the rig's mirror. Price and timescales are yet to be fixed. We need to make sure it works correctly first.
