The cinematographer is David Mullen. If I'm not mistaken, I believe he is (or was in the past) a member of this forum, though I don't recall the handle he went by.

My bank says my credit card offers a 1 year extension to the warranty. They also say I can use any authorized repair center, it doesn't have to be the manufacturer itself. Anyone have recommendations?
