FYI, an ipad is small if you're a *normal sized* adult male. wink

It was a RED.  I have no idea who he was, but they showed up at the pie eating competition in Pie Town New Mexico, then left as soon as it was done.

Must have been using quite a wide angle as the french flag on the matte box is tilted up a tad, no?

It looked like he had a Nikon lens mounted, and I'm not good at identifying those, so I don't know what it was.

Oh, so he had the matte box (the greyish) box that has the french flag (black plate) connected to it mounted to the lens and not 15mm rods? Not a fan of mounting a matte box that way and you'd figure with a setup like that he'd have the base and 15mm rods to support the matte box. Hmmm.

No, the flag was on rods.  I'm just saying I don't know how wide the lens was because I couldn't identify it.

At first I though it was a 4x5 Cambo wink That would be a surprise.
