Steve
"Letus Ultimate Summer Day" was excellent.
What kind of hardware did you use for the "dolly" shots???

The Indieslider was used for the dolly type shots. I will be doing a blog about this. I customized mine a bit by lower the center of gravity.

Here it is for ordering @ http://www.indifocus.com/products_indisliderpro.htm

Be interested in hearing how you customized your indisliderpro Steve. Did you just make a shorter mount for the head?

Awesome device!
It's amazing you can get such distinctive shots with only 36" of leeway.

Great summer clips Steve of a very nice New England Town.

Cool find on the indislider. Can you set it up a little off level and have it run on its own?

Thanks for your help with the Fisheye it is working perfect.

Beautiful shots! Hope to have you in Tokyo again at some point. EX3 to start distribution in Japan mid-August, so, I should have a full set-up with 35mm adaptor and convergent design nanno/Flash sometime at the end of September, early October!

Hi Dean. How much does the EX3 go for in Japan? I'm travelling there from Australia later this year, so just curious on the pricing there and whether I should purchase there or not, thanks.

854,000 yen via the internet
http://www.system5.jp/ec/html/item/0...item35505.html

828,000 yen via net
http://kakaku.com/itemlist/I2020202030N101/

828,000 yen via Fujiya-Avic in Nakano
http://www.fujiya-avic.co.jp/proshop/xdcamex.html

I do not know if this includes any cards? I'm also not sure how the warranty works? I usually buy local for service reasons. I've bought lots of gear from fujiya-avic in the past.

Nice, thanks for that. Now I have to decide whether saving almost $4000AU is worth the potential warranty and import duty hassles :D

I guess it's stock out first to Europe and the US then ... Japan.

Thanks for the info. I'd probably put the box in the nearest bin :) I was thinking about knocking up a fake invoice just in case. I've been hassled before with carry on video gear that was actually brought and paid for in Melbourne. Next question is do I have the patients to wait till the end of September when I go....
