You should see the bedlam going on in my kit room. My PDW-700 is preparing to lynch my EX3 and my EX3 and EX1 are working as a tag team ready to take on the 700. The NanoFlashes meanwhile are looking down from their shelf, goading the cameras on as they know their safe (smug little buggers).

You see the problem is I have a PMW-350 coming and someone has to go! I expect one morning to walk in there and find plastic and circuit board carnage!

The tripods have taken a vote and they tell me the 700 must go, as he's just too heavy and they are feeling old and arthritic. The V-Locks concur as they are fed up with becoming exhausted after little more than an hour. The U1 however is pleading for me to save the 700 as it will be lonely without someone to feed it.

Oh man, I'm the proud owner of a EX1R as of two days ago, thank God I mentioned to my wife that besides the camera, there are minimum extras that must be purchased too, like cam warranty, 32gig cards, batteries, UV filter, bag, etc... And those costs are just a little over half the cost of the camera. But now I've been eyeing the Nano Flash and Nexto DI, after all, they're part of the minimum kit too, right?

Dang, she won't be laughing now, I should have given the wife a higher budget to start with, then I get hollered at only once... now where are those earplugs...?

My EX1 came into work with me a year ago and has since convinced my boss that it needed friends.

It made us buy 3 ex1s and 3 ex3s as well as 6 decks several mac pros. Even more iMacs.

Then it made us buy an editshare.

Next, it wants us to buy better tripods, letus and a steadicam.

and then... another editshare... much bigger.

And I hear all of the cameras chatting amongst themselves about how we need more media and how nice it would be to get some rosco litepad HO's to work even better...

and late at night, we hear whispers about getting little brothers for the community members to use.....

Now, if we could just get an HD channel.
