This is me with an early prototype of the XHA1. I had to dress up like Santa as part of the deal. I'll explain later.

175fps but the rubber band snapped...hence the completely different design of the finished product :)

This is my A1 with my brand new head and tripod system from Panther Broadcast in Munich.

The head is a T6 fluid head with two steps. Great and solid product. Everything was made in Germany.

Hey, Steven, where'd you get that shot of me and my Linhoff?

Chris Hurd September 20th, 2007 04:10 PM

I thought there was a resemblance Bill.

Bill Pryor September 20th, 2007 09:56 PM

Well, it's close, but my view camera is a Calumet with Schneider lenses, and the "snapshot" 4X5 isn't a Linhoff--it's an ancient Crown Graphic, and no I didn't buy it new--I'm not THAT old. I did buy the Calumet and lenses new, however.

Marcus-
Can you please comment on the quality of the Panther head? I'm looking for a fluid head right now and just came across this new product line. I'd be grateful for any feedback you can provide.

Resurrecting the thread...

I was looking for pics of setups, it's interesting to see the mods to the cam.

I just received my XH-A1 and was looking for more "inspiration" for a great setup!

I saw this pic for modding the headphone jack...

Here's mine:
XH-A1 with Rode NTG-2/Rode SM-5 shockmount(removed 'thin end')/custom made XLR cable with 2 right angled plugs/'windcutter' fur over internal mic/Sony eyecup/WD-H72 wide angle lens/10 mm drilled hole for headphone/Manfrotto 351MVB/503 tripod and Porta Brace raincover.
Sorry for crappy cellphone pictures.

Jeff Mayne May 3rd, 2008 05:42 PM

Hubert, you are the answer to my prayers. I have been looking for a rain cover that would fit with my Rhode Shock Mount setup just like yours. I am assuming that the Porta Brace rain slicker fits with the shock mount still attached? Thanks a bunch,
Jeff

Josh Chesarek May 3rd, 2008 06:10 PM

It doesn't look like at least the mic is loaded up for the rain cover shot.

Steve Lewis May 4th, 2008 01:32 AM

What tripod model is that?
