We are working with such a large variety of camera's these days from DSLR's and modular systems mounted to Erector Set like contraptions, to the awkward hand held, back wrenching, mid sized units and of course the old standard, shoulder positioned pro HD cams. Every job is a different, camera hop, mounting challenge and on top of that every DP/AC has an opinion on how they'd like it positioned (fair enough), which sometimes verges on requests for the impossible. Let's use this forum to share our standard and not so standard RX mounting methods? Please do your best to keep the discussion to what receivers you are using, on what camera, and how you are mounting them.
I'm trying to validate purchasing an Srb for hops. More so than not, lately I've been chasing camera ops around. Honestly I like the comraderie of working as a team, and being cabled together defiantly involves a bit more team work. but having to make sure they don't trip over the snake, or I get a tug from camera, takes away from booming. I'm almost positive I'm not going to ever get a separate rental from buying a stereo hops atTHESE jobs, so it would be for a more leisure work experience. Ive aksed my usual producers and cam ops and they do not expect hops or are going to pay for them. This doesn't mean I can't redirect new clients. Thoughts?
