I thought its a great improvement that JVC formed the HD200/250 that way that its sitting on the tripod plate with it´s front and back "foot".

With the compendium you seem to loose that option...

?

Hi Uli,

It's a little less stable without the "foot". but not a big problem. I'm going to find out if somebody (maybe Vocas or JVC) can make a little bus between the plate and the HD. I do have a extra level bubble on top of the HD. I think there's no other solution when using a matte box... or is there?

Further, I'd recommend to take a look at some other lenses. Perhaps the 17x5? If you buy you might get a decent price for the package, whereas when you change your mind later and want to buy the 17x (or another) anyway, it might be somewhat more expensive...

The Camrade bags are also very good, but you might want to try them for a nice fit first. I bought mine in a big store in Belgium and they allowed me to test various bags for a perfect fit first - that way I walked out with another bag then I intended first on the specs of the manufacturer.

Ah, by the way, I'm still having a Rycote Softie lying around here (it's not on the pictures of my website, as I use a Reinhardt now), if you would want that one, you might save yourself some euro's as wel...
Uhhhh... did you read the entire post and see the pictures? I already have the complete set.

I'm getting my new CamRade bag tomorrow, because the HD-100 version isn't the right size. They made a new one for the HD-200/250.

I mainly use this lens for interviews, all other project are going to be shot with a MINI35 with Cooke or Zeiss lenses and NO I don't own a MINI35 (I wish I did) (still have to test it with the HD-251).

Sorry, I was a little distracted (damn those pretty women...). I realised as I posted it. Sorry again.

The only thing you might be missing in this rig is a steadicam/glidecam/motioncam/..., perhaps?

I got my HD back from Vocas and they fixed the problem! I'll post a picture tomorrow!

Hey, that looks far better!

:-)

BTW: I see thats a Vinten Tripod (Pro 10...)

How smooth is PAN/TILT with the cam and this tripod - especially on extreme tele settings?
