New Varicam 2700 Just Delivered...What Now?
on Nov 3, 2009 at 7:57:51 am

My company just received two brand new HPX2700s. I've never had to work with a high end camera straight out of the box before so I am wondering what my first course of action should be. I was considering sending them out to have them set up and matched. Is this wise or should I just look for established scene files and start working out my looks from there. I've been an operator for several years working with rental house cameras that were already set up by DPs. Now I'm moving into the DP role and the look we give these cameras is entirely up to me for the first time.

Have you gone to a Varicamp yet- that would be an excellent idea. Your dealer can point the way.

Just got back from Varicamp in Burbank. It was an excellent hands on seminar. A couple of participants had just come from the Maine workshop as well.

I highly recommend Varicamp in order to get the most out of the Classic Varicam, HPX2700 and 3700 P2 Varicams. Well worth the time and cost, IMO. It was taught by a DP and DIT, so it was practical information, not lab theory.
