Red One Unboxing Pics

February 9, 2008

The cam arrived yesterday morning at Vienna airport. FedEx called me at 7:30 because they needed some documents signed for customs. Luckily they were able to accept them via email which meant I could send them back immediately without driving to the office and use the fax machine.

Since all trucks had already left the station once the custom declaration process was finished I drove by and picked it up myself (btw. that was the first time my new used BMW 320d touring I got this week payed off - I would not have been able to get those boxes into my old Mazda 121 Baby).

Today I started unboxing the cam and putting everything together as well as making the first test shots. The cam is much bigger in size than I had imagined. And fully configured it is very heavy. I am looking forward to the Nikon mount since that will reduce the total weight a lot - those Cooke lenses are really heavy!
