P+S Technik IMS for Sony PMW-F3

Need to mount every manual lens ever made to the Sony PMW-F3? Now you can. Thanks to the minds at P+S Technik not only can you mount Canon, Nikon, and Leica lenses they've thrown in BNCR and Panavision mounts to boot. Good luck finding Panavision glass for rent. The Interchangable Mount System includes an FZ flange-side mount that adapts to several other mounts via eight different mount rings.

Couple this system with the included PL mount and you can pick up glass from just about everywhere and slap it on your F3.

Briefly-- iPhone Zacuto Grip

In perusing the Zacuto website to check out the Zgrip, I came across this gem:

I don't know why anyone would want this, but it definitely reminds me of 'The Claw' from Liar Liar.

F3 Heaven

We folks in Equipment ventured out of our cave today to take a little trip down to Abel Cine Tech to check out shoulder mounts for the Sony PMW-F3!  Here are a few shots:

Iron Man 3?

No, this isn't a sneak peak of the newest Iron Man film in the works, it's actually a high-speed video of Canon 18-55mm aperture blades in action! Pretty neat!
