as much as a 6 hour trip to deflate your ego once you realize how much more style this American has would be worth it, I think work will interfere.

Next time though, or if you are ever in Boston (the land where all the people went when they realized that England was a bad place to live) we can meet and get a drink.

Cheerio,

I've been working on a methane power source for my ex1/pilot/zylight z90.... it's quit simple really.... just a 1.5 meter lenth of 1/2 tubing and a 1cc honda 4 stroke. Only downside is that I have to down 3 cans of baked beans a few hours before the shoot.

You should stop using .mac. Can't see your page or add a comment :
This service is temporarily unavailable.
....

For the SxS unloading software, I see 2 options I would like you to comment :
1) format the card after unloading : when the card is not formated on the EX1, it seems the EX1 doesn't like it... Have you experienced that ?
2) renaming the card : same problem here. If you rename the card, the EX1 will ask you to "recover" the media at each start or each time you plug the SxS card in.

Last question on your LCD change : why did sony send you the LCD screen ? Don't you have a guaranty ? Did you ask to do that way so you don't have to return your EX1 back ?

Many thanks for your work and sharing !

Apple was updatng .mac account servers for the new mobile.me service, so the server was down.

I wanted to replace the LCD as it went bad, and I did not want to wait 10 days for service, plus it gives others a option to do their own replacement. I did it for the good of the video community!

I do not use format in ShotPut or do I rename the card in ShotPut, the only exception, I will rename the card before QT import and or the folder that contains the media so the media is referenced by a name that I give it, Shotput will make that name of the folder you are transferring into for you, in the menu.

Letus and EX1

I will be purchasing an EX1 thanks to the briliant work of two people; Philip Bloom, and Tom Guilmette. These two men produce work that truly conveys the beauty created for this Earth by a higher source. The stunning quality of the work of these two I aspire to achieve.

These two masters of our trade endorse the Letus used with a EX1. That having been said I come to my question. Finally.

I am looking at also purchasing a Jib Arm with a motorized head (over and underslung.) I would love to know if anyone, including Tom and Philip, have tried or have any advice where using the Letus Extreme with the EX1 on a Jib with Dutch Head. Anyone?

Very nice stuff Steve. Are you using a dolly or indieslider type thing for some of those tracking shots?

Still love to meet up sometime and see your Ultimate.

Phil,
I've left the following questions on the Redrock Micro's website, but they were never answered - could you please tell me:

- what parts (if any) are needed to use the mattebox straight on the EX1
- same with the Letus Extreme (and Canon FD lenses I'm using)
- is it possible to mount it using the Letus 30+15cm rail system?

Does it come with some set of step-down rings, or is it taken care of in a different way? TIA!
