Okay Denny, I'll see your UMatic and raise you ski slopes.
We've always done a lot of work in the ski industry, winter Olympics and such.
You've brought memories of my team doing just that, often backwards on race courses and off-piste.

I see your Umatic and ski slopes.
Try being portable with this. The Sony BVH 500 tethered to an Ikegami HL79D.
I dedicate this post to the trusty video engineer that had to carry this "portable" device.

Yes, young ones, count your blessings.
This was considered a portable camera setup.

That was the standard “portable” field setup when I started doing location work. The video engineer ran the recorder, the cameraman the camera. The recorder was useually mounted in a small van, with cables running between. 8-)

Today’s Picket 4K, runs circles around this setup. I know which one I prefer to “haul” around...
Cheers.
