This is me with an early prototype of the XHA1. I had to dress up like Santa as part of the deal. I'll explain later.

175fps but the rubber band snapped...hence the completely different design of the finished product :)

This is my A1 with my brand new head and tripod system from Panther Broadcast in Munich.

The head is a T6 fluid head with two steps. Great and solid product. Everything was made in Germany.

Well, it's close, but my view camera is a Calumet with Schneider lenses, and the "snapshot" 4X5 isn't a Linhoff--it's an ancient Crown Graphic, and no I didn't buy it new--I'm not THAT old. I did buy the Calumet and lenses new, however.

Marcus-
Can you please comment on the quality of the Panther head? I'm looking for a fluid head right now and just came across this new product line. I'd be grateful for any feedback you can provide.
Greg

Resurrecting the thread...

I was looking for pics of setups, it's interesting to see the mods to the cam.

I just received my XH-A1 and was looking for more "inspiration" for a great setup!

I saw this pic for modding the headphone jack...

Hubert, you are the answer to my prayers. I have been looking for a rain cover that would fit with my Rhode Shock Mount setup just like yours. I am assuming that the Porta Brace rain slicker fits with the shock mount still attached? Thanks a bunch,
Jeff

It doesn't look like at least the mic is loaded up for the rain cover shot.
