Hot Rod Cameras 7D-PL Short Test


by: Chris Marino

Earlier this weekend I kept getting texts from a friend, Rich Cascio, with photos attached of a Hot Rod 7D-PL. Needless to say there was not going to be any chance that I would miss that opportunity. So this Sunday I met up with him out around the beach near San Francisco to film. The lens we used was a Carl Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.9. I had the 7D-PL mounted on a Redrock Micro baseplate with their follow focus. I also used my Switronix Powerbase 70 and a Marshall 7″ HDMI. The only ND filters I could get my hands on so quickly were 4×5″ 85ND’s. No big deal I just white balanced the camera for 3200K. Have a look at the short videos we shot today. Cheers.
