The Teradek Bolt Pro 600 will work at up to 600' line of sight and comes in an HDMI model. Why would you need all four TX going to the same RX unit?

If the quick release base isn't holding, try connecting it at a second point (two 1/4" screws should suffice for a DSLR setup). This will stop it from twisting under its own weight, causing the screw...

I think you may do well to read your camera manualů the ratio given on the front of the lens (e.g. 1:1.8 or 1:4) is the maximum aperture value, not the only one. You can adjust the aperture from the...

I'm sure a basic understanding of VFX would be useful, but Kingda Ka was asking about SFX (i.e. physical, practical effects on the set/in camera).

I can't really answer the original question, but...

Hey Joseph,

I have a friend in London who owns an Aaton LTR and another who owns an ARRI SR2. Shoot me an email (me at olliecraig dot com) and I'll put you in touch with them.

Cheers!

The 6D will record a 1920*1080 frame at 91 Mbps (ALL-I) or 31 Mbps (IPB). Use ALL-I for the best picture quality.

Shooting flat can be very useful but is not always appropriate. In a lower...

As it's for a stills rather than motion shoot, this should be relatively easy to achieve with a couple of off-camera flashguns.

We used Sennheiser G3s, as a link between the camera and audio mixer and for wireless mics. The TX and RX units are both pretty small - you can see the receiver mounted on the camera in...

You don't mention which model of GoPro you plan to use, but you should be able to shoot at 25fps (depending on resolution).

Yes, the C100 resolves significantly more detail than the 7D. If you plan on intercutting them the difference may be less noticeable if you shoot wider on the C100 and tighter on the 7D. Careful...
