Still have to solve power

A way to store the SSD card in a handle is fine. And except for the fact the monitor is a touchscreen it would be relatively easy to put a Loupe on the BMCC4K. It wouldn't be off-axis like regular cameras are, but rather the viewfinder looks right down the lens. I mean, not really. But it's in line with the lens. I still need either a Western dolly or a doorway dolly.

Linear Baby Wipes

I keep forgetting how to make a film-like wipe, with a nice feather in it, in Premiere Pro. The effect is called "Linear Wipe." You need to put it on the outgoing clip.

The photographer's ephemeris is a great online tool for figuring out where the heck the sun will be at a particular time on a particular date in a particular place. If you don't want the sun behind the camera (or, if you do), you need to have a way of figuring out where it'll be. Won't account for clouds though. Of course.

If you need to rent a Stryker in Canada, you can go to BlueLeader.
