Ooh, what colour is your camera strap !

Post by El Brenty » Mon Jul 23, 2007 3:42 pm

Like anyone cares, but anyone reading the how many DV tapes will understand the purpose of this topic.

Mine is black and gray by the way.

For my Canon MVX100i, it is dark grey with the Canon logo in white. With the XM1 (GL1), it is black with the Canon logo in white. :D

My own cheapo camera has a nice black strap with Panasonic written out in white letters with the font Arial Bold. :D

The cameras that I prefer to use (namely the school's Canons and Sonys) do not have straps, thus adding to the excitement if you lose your grip for a second.

I believe that we should have a thread for the weight of your camera, and one for the type of tripod you use. :lol:

Along with some threads for the filter diameter on your camera, and the size of the LCD!

Well, my camera's (Canon XM1) weight is 1.2 kg, the tripod I use is the Slik 504QF, the filter diameter is 58mm and the size of the LCD is 2.5 inches.

For the MVX100i, I couldn't care less!

So Ornsack was the one that got the Wii recalled because he broke his tv by using the controller too strenuously...

:D

Thanks, Brent! It's called the Canon XM1 (known in America as the GL1).

Isn't that right, Dave?

It drives my mate mad. But then he does put his iPod in a special scratch-proof pouch

Show off! I'm jealous because mine is actually quite probably worse.

@Film Fanatic - I don't see a strap on that camera!

No straps on the XL2 I use...

Should have used one though, it was a pity when we went on a trip to Erie, PA. It was firmly attached to the tripod, and someone carried it by the tripod - it fell off, but still works! Yeah Canon for sturdy equipment!

Well here is the thing...I really don't own a camera. I have a Panasonic PV-GS15 but it has been broken since I filmed Code of Dissolution back in the summer of '05. I rent equipment from the place I sort of work at right now and when I'm done with that I'll be likely renting equipment from the University of Utah's film school I'll be going into soon...

To answer you question...I normally use a DVX without the strap.

I'm as dangerous as Ornsack. No strap (drives the ladies wild)

Oh yeah, and I have "This machine kills fascists" written on the side of the camera.
