    The trouble with any directional mic is they need aiming. I always think of mics like a torch - with a beam, and while some light up the whole room, others light up just a face, leaving the chest...

    When we used tungsten, tungsten halogen and then discharge in CSI, HMI and MSD variants we always had colour differences, and we'd open up the case of gels and look at the scene and then sort it....

    Are people willing to pay for higher and higher qualities? I'm not. I could shoot in 4K, I don't (well apart from when I need to do things planned in post) and the reason is simply that my HD chain ...

    I always found auto white balance produced bizarre results on the sodium spike - it sort of assumes the level at the spike is the general 'colour' and the adjustment can be quite unexpected.

    Do you want to match existing footage shot in real sodium lighting, or do you want to simulate it? Real sodium light is the virtual absence of anything other than the sodium spike, so recreating that...

    Alcohol works fine. However, the sanitising cloths everyone is using is by far the simplest - they dry out when the alchohol evaporates in a few minutes - so ideal for mics. We've used them for...

    You've got a bit confused here - 1080 and 720 are variations of HD - this is an SD camcorder, so your capture device will extract the best it can manage. The 720x576 EU/UK SD frame size should...

    He's not really shared anything at all - just the differences in gain required between different mics. It sounds good because he has nice mics in a decent room. His equipment is normal, plus olde...

    If the free audio and video editors/DAWs are so good, then why do many of us pay lots of money for what we use? It's because they offer what we need and can put up with the price.
