matthew... sweet setup!

i would second bill's recommendation for zacuto support products. i like the fact that their rods are expandable (screw into each other) -- makes for easy transport, and you don't need to carry around 5 sets of rods at different lengths. their z-mount is awesome for mounting an lcd, like the swit or marshall, to the rods -- very strong and stable, and no slipping, you also gain the benefit of the z-mount quick release, for quick attaching/detaching of the articulating arm.

Hey Matthew,

Great setup, I just ordered an M2 and rods for my XL2s/XH-A1 - looks great!

Now, where's some footage from this beast?

What do you do about external recording? I've learned that the XH A1 doesn't have anyway to take the timecode out of the camera. I'm curious what you do as an alternative.

I was going to order the rods today. What part do I need to make sure it fits on my 501 head with quick release plate?

Thanks much

hey guys, sorry, was away!

Lots of questions! AHHH!

Basically:

Cavision is awsome.
I want a follow focus, but all so expensive for a freaking gearbox! (Will by RR soon)
I have a few UV filters and a 72-82--82-72 set-up so I can space it perfectly, and use on an HVX if I have to. I have mine set up so I zoom to a preset (75) and then focus all the way right (1.3 feet) and it is tack sharp. Took some time to get it perfect, due to the A1's weak Macro photography.

The Micro flip unit should solve it cause them mirrors eat up a lot of space.

Unfortunatly, my Rigt is imposible to duplicate perfectly now cause Cavision doesn't make this plate anymore. It was designed for th XL2 anyway :P

It's my own home-made hardmount kit, had it before RR released one (followed some tutorials). I have shot a short with it recently and it looks killer! Just trying to get it up online in a decent format.

More to come.

Matt
