That rig includes:

- Canon XHA1
- Letus Extreme (the picture includes a Nikon Mount and a 200mm Nikkor lense)
- Marshall 7in Monitor
- Redrock Micro Shoulder Mount with 28mm rails
- Redrock Micro Follow Focus
- a Cavision Rail system is inbetween the Redrock and the Camera (basically a glorified lift for the camera so the Letus doesn't touch my rails

Glad you enjoyed the screengrabs :)

Kyle,

Thanks for sharing your faith.

If I missed it, my apologies, any chance to see the A1+LetusEX footage as film?

Tx

Great "look and feel` of the movie!
Have you shot whole film with an adapter, or some scenes done without?

I think all I shot without the adapter is a few plate shots of exteriors and a few things. Other than thats its always been the adapter and whole setup together. Even if I wanted to shoot something without the adapter on set its a pain to take it all apart and put it back together again. Time is money.

Kyle,

All I have to say is wow! Everything I've seen looks great! Your movie looks very compelling. Loved the trailer! And thats one serious rig.

What tripod and head are you using for that?
Did you use any type of steadicams or just the Redrock shouldermount for any moving shots?

Bogan 519 head with a different set of legs...I'm not positive of the name right this second.

Kyle, have you had a chance to watch Religulous? If so, I'd be interested in hearing your evaluation of it.

Unfortunately I would like to see it to see if its what I think it is...but that means supporting it by giving my money...which I wont do.

Great screen grabs and trailer, Kyle. It really shows the range the A1 has. I'm assuming you're shooting 24F?

Also, did you have a budget for this feature? Looks like a decent one.

Thanks for the kind words. Yes 24F. (it would be foolish not to take advantage)

The A1 is truely an incredible camera for its price. The only downside I really see in using it so far is the lack of audio options and having to deal with tape. Its image is nice and sharp, and the range of the HDV codec is much better than most know. Canon really used the codec to its best implimentation in their HD cams, no other HDV cam can match this thing!

The budget for the film (if you want to call it a budget) is right now around $35,000.

How much of a hassle is it to move that rig around for different shots and stuff?

Also, you said the budget so far was $35,000. I'd very interested in knowing what kind of things led to that price...just general ball park numbers.
