So here is a cool version of my 5D3 rig with my iPad Prompter on it. It’s pretty tight. The prompter is driven by my Macbook Pro using a display mirroring software over WiFi. The system is pretty light weight all things considered and I can take it handheld if needed. I am using an ATOMOS Samurai Blade to record in ProRes straight out of the camera’s HDMI. It also records the final audio in sync with the picture.
Here is another version of the rig using a SmallHD AC-7 monitor for the field. I like the size of the AC-7 and how bright it is. This is the rig when clients want to record right to CF and not deal with the ATOMOS.
With the focus on new cameras looking toward 4K this year it will be interesting to see how the world of the 5D fairs. I am intrigued by the GH4… I have clients still asking for the 5D3 and the 5D2. they like the look of the full frame sensor and want to go with a known camera. I think I’ll get another year or two out of this rig.
Until next time, Good shooting
