The images on this page are larger versions of the small photos from the two articles about the GY-HD100 and Mini35 combo, Part One: The Camera and Part Two: The Shoot, plus a few more extra “behind the scenes” shots that weren’t used directly in the articles. These were taken at Clairmont Camera in Los Angeles, and also the “Zen Garden” at Los Angeles Center Studios.

A “beauty shot” provided by P+S Technik.

The HD100 and Mini35 fully assembled at Clairmont Camera.

Another view of the rig, still at Clairmont.

Chas lounges in Video Village while Barry Green monitors the DV Rack.

Nate Weaver takes a turn at operating the HD100 and Mini35.

The view from the driver’s seat. Go ahead, take her for a spin!

Charles “Hopalong” Papert operates, despite crutches. Barry Green stands ready to administer First Aid. Nate Weaver pulls focus on the other side.

Since it’s all dressed up, we couldn’t resist another “hero” shot.

That’s a wrap. Thanks, guys! From left: Brad Littman (in back),
