    "nailing focus" on a 1/3" chip SD camera is kind of liking throwing a brick at a dart board--a lot of leeway there! This may be something you already know, but just in case not--the legacy routine of...

    I can't remember anything more about the Miranda unit, but there remains a question whether the signal is coming out of the camera into the Miranda, or if the Miranda itself is working.

    Here's a...

    Many shadowy memories of various downconverters (Miranda, Evertz) which all cost an arm and a leg--finally the $500 Decimator came along to save the day!

    if you do go that route it would be three bncs carrying component signal out to the convertor.

    Mostly, I can only marvel at what 48 hour filmmaking has evolved into - this film is several light years ahead in terms of production value than the best of what we were doing in the early days of...

    Eric, that all sounds tasty and I'm heading over for some fresh fried fish.

    The fish I'm frying is all metaphorical...I have rarely made fish at home (love fish but it can stink up the place but...

    I just took it as a comment on the officers of the local, not the members, or maybe unions in general, etc. I probably should be standing up for my "brothers and sisters", as we say, but as you may...

    Doesn't bother me, I leave that stuff to the mods.

    Strong advocate? mmmmm no comment.

    I did a ton of small crew jobs but perhaps it was more of the type of production, I was doing more corporate and narrative back then than broadcast. Maybe we didn't bring one out on two-man crews but...

    Oh interesting. From your previous posts it seemed like you were on set for union shows...no?

    Same here, stipend of $250/day for testing on non-work days. On union jobs this appears to be standard from my experience and what I've heard from others. Were the 80% that didn't compensate you...

    I wouldn't know what to do with those thumbnail versions of waveforms on onboard monitors other than laugh at them. This is my downsized version of scopes which lives on my lightweight cart (the full...

    Just to be fully cautious here I am going to re-iterate this part again since Chris posted a similar cable to the one I linked (Lemo to 4 pin d-tap splitter). Unless your rig has already been...

    Wow, a Provid 1! That's going back a while. OK, yes, the route you described will probably work. Generally I think it's best to avoid powering a camera via D-tap connector as there may be a bit of...

    Anon, in my experience the 4 pin Hirose is rated around 1 amp of draw while a d-tap connector provides 10 amps. You'd have to check on the various components to see how much they add up to--a high...

    FWIW, I bought a reconditioned Samurai Blade(looked and performed as good as new) direct from Atomos two years ago for $375. If they still have stock, they may even be cheaper now.

    Let's just go back to the beginning with a fresh start. What's the difference between 24p and 24pA modes again?

    I remember seeing a demo of a solid state (chip) camera at the SMPTE show in NYC in '84. So I would have to assume that they started making inroads over the next 5 years. I do remember primarily...

    Haha, "they" is kind of funny--yes I can indeed discuss what "they" were using!

    For Aerobics Meltdown we (!) used SDX900's, Panasonic's last 2/3" SD camera, which had 24p capability. I can't...

    From a long term standpoint, my SVHS homemade tapes have lasted the test of time vs the Hi8 (same with VHS and 8mm), surely due to the larger surface area of the tape. Lots of dropouts with the small...
