....They are getting close. My dealer says mid-November. A friend on the opposite coast has one already. I would like to be ready to roll once they get here. Who will be flying one? Here are my questions for anyone who has investigated- 1. What will be required to balance it? Longer tubes? epic tilt plate? anything else? 2. Apparently it can be controlled by sony LANC. What options besides gentled are there to control it? 3. SDI out only, what's the best converter to get to composite/ SD for standard downlink? 4. Will a canon IS lens help? and what are some good lenses? 5. Since it has a built-in battery, will you take it out to save weight? Or, just power it from the gimbal battery? Separate battery?
