XL-h1 owners in Atlanta

yo, my friends need an xl-h1 to some digitizing off of for a couple of days in atlanta, and rather then paying me to ship my camera out I figure why not just rent it from one of my atlanta bretheren. e-mail me or respond to this thread if you can help out. Sorry, all of the footage was shot in 24F so it has to be an xl-h1.
I have a dream that one day canon will release a 35mm ef to xl adapter and I'll have iris control and a 35mm dof of all my ef lenses, and it will be awesome...

Need mpeg2 compression and DVD master in L.A.

I am in Los Angeles. I need someone to compress my footage for a 15 minute short and make me a clean 24p DVD-R master. Footage is currently in FCP on a 24p timeline.

Please respond to this thread with a price and your location. Westside a plus.

HONEY! I suggest to put a spoon with honey in front of the lens. The magnifying factor of the lens will show them an unbeliavable amount of honey so they have to run out everybody to check if it is true. Then grab your camera! Don't let them in again with dirty feet! /Johan

Buy a sticky tray and place your camera in the middle of it for a week. When the ants come out to forage or get some dirt to take back into their swanky new abode, they will get stuck.

I had a rat in my car once, after getting it back from a repair shop. Apparently they had rats in their shop and had left my car open. When they gave it to me, I started noticing visible chew marks near the windows, where it was trying to get out. It even built a nest out of shredded paper towel in the ventillation systems. I know this because the inside of the car was filled with confetti and rat droppings when I turned on the AC.

It was special.

Finally got it out by leaving the windows rolled down.

Someone with XL1-2-S in Jacksonville, FL?

I'm doing a shoot in Jacksonville and am looking for a second (backup) camera for March 3rd and 4th. It will be a hellicopter lifting up large signs to the top of a 28 story building. Pay is only $100 a day but it should be a low pressure gig.

Score my movie?

Hi everyone,

I'll get straight to it. I am looking for somone to score a short film for free. I am a student completing my final year in college and this is my final and only production for asessment this year. I have made a number of films which have won a number of awards. I am soon to embark on shooting the film (currently in pre-production) and so am trying to figure out what I can get before I get to post. The film is a suspenceful thriller, or thereabouts.

Basically I am looking for three pieces or cues of music. Total length of all three tracks from 5 - 8 minutes. The film is guaranteed to be released on a DVD, although neither I or any of the production crew will actually get paid for it. However it will be disctibuted and screened, so exposure is guaranteed. I also plan to enter film festivals.

If anyone is interested, please do not hesitate to contact me at I have the script ready and will send it to potential composers.

Best regards,
Alex Mizin

I actually had a similar experience when I took my ZR-45 on vacation - there were ants in the viewfinder and it was really irritating. At first it was scary - the viewfinder lens magnifies them a lot and they looked like monsters lol. I actually opened up the viewfinder and blew them out, but I don't know if that's a good idea with a lens unless you know what you're doing.

I had the same problem with a radio once, the ants got inside when I was on a building site. Open every possible entry point, tape door etc, put the camera in the centre of a table and place a small saucer of honey about a foot away. The ants can smell it from a great distance, and once they leave the camera they will feed on the honey and head off looking for their original nest, not the inside of your camera. Of coarse, this all depends on if they followed a queen ant intent on starting up a new colony inside your camera. If that’s the case, then it could be time to start stripping. (The camera I mean) Never go naked near angry ants.

Thanks to all that responded. Again, if I missed following up I apologize.

The project is wrapped. The footage that was provided was great. I was pleased to find so many professionals available on these boards.

I hope to do it again.
