Daniel, the new cases should be here any day now, and we'll figure something out once they've arrived. These ones are not "Pelican" branded, but actually made (including custom foam) for us specifically. Basically you won't be able to tell the difference. You can thank Steve for the pack job...and he'll be happy to hear the comments on his handiwork with bubble wrap.
We're very glad you're finding the tuturial helpful...7 or so more series are coming soon! Carlos, we were hoping to help out customers where English is not a first language (and there's a lot of you!) so I'm relieved to read your comment
We have approx 1300 sq/ft lot of studio space now, so any requests for more of these exciting videos (ha ha) will likely result in a quick fix. Jon, the shooter (Paul Morralee) has yet to use the adapter, and time was a big issue...so it was shot with 3 cams, with the main cam (XL2) in AF mode! I would have liked to shoot on HD, but for DVD distribution and ease of editing, we decided to just stick with SD 16:9. We've got a few pics of the setup so I'll post these up for kicks. Here's what we used:
1. XL2 on the Cinevate jib/dolly (thanks Canon!) The entire series was shot with the camera on the jib, with the camera mounted to a 503 fluid head. Essentially it was a big stabilizer that allowed Paul to shoot for hours with little fatigue. It makes for some nice dolly/crane transitions too. Paul has shot with the XL series cams since the XL1, and he fell in love with the jib/dolly setup.
2. HV20 for the wide shots (shooting 16:9 SD)
3. XH-A1 setup cam captured direct on our new Asus G2S laptop (review to come) using OnLocation.
When our HPX500 shows up, we'll have 3 HD capable cams in house so it'll be HD all the way from there.
