    You might not even need to turn the contrast all the way down, run some tests and see what looks good to you. For indoor interviews, under controlled lighting, I think it's good to shoot close to the...

    How does it look when you open it up in VLC? This might be the QuickTime gamma shift issue.
  3. Imitation S-Cinetone for A6xxx series cameras

    I just ran across this video on how to set imitation S-Cinetone in your A6xxx series camera. I haven't had a chance to shoot anything with it yet, but it should be fun to test out.

    The creator...

    It's good to know about new scam tactics, as I'm sure most of us also sell things other than video gear on services like Craig's List. People have been scammed here before too, no place is safe, and...

    Not to mention ads targeted to your age demographic 365 days a year. I lied about my birthday to FaceBook, just to throw off datamining.

    I started video with a Handycam on a Slik U-9000 tripod, what a piece of garbage, it was short, and the center column crank broke on the first use. I then upgraded to a Davis & Sanford FM18 head and...

    I agree with the sentiment, but it doesn't apply in all cases. I could say everyone should spend $20K on a set of sticks and a head, buy once cry once. The problem is that people don't necessarily...

    E-Image has lousy inspectors and quality control issues, at least on their more budget product range. Last year I bought an E-Image EG05A2 set of sticks with a GH05 head, the sticks were fine, but I...

    It can be used to gauge if blue/green screen is lit evenly, but that's about the only use I can think of.

    My current Lilliput 664/O/P has false color, but the scale is only on screen for a fraction of a second, and it doesn't display corresponding IRE levels, so I just use zebras.

    An incident light...
  11. Do waveforms in budget field monitors accommodate video levels and full range levels

    I've noticed that budget field monitors are starting to include waveform, scopes, and false color, but the descriptions and specs don't make it clear whether the waveform can be set to correctly...

    When using a DSLM on tripod shots, I mount my audio recorder onto the pan arm using a rubber electrical clamp and QR plate, which helps keep the center of gravity low.

    I made the switch to Arca-Swiss style QR plates a few years ago, but I bought everything off eBay. I got a 40mm Sunwayfoto lever clamp and Haoge QR plate with an adjustable lip. Due the the weird...

    I talked with an engineer about liquid lenses 15 years ago, glad to see the technology coming to fruition. You could argue the that photography has a long history of liquid lenses, as the old trick...

    I haven't tried matching my Nikon D7000 to my Sony A6300, but if the interview took place indoors under controlled lighting, I'd set both cameras as close to Rec.709 as I could get them, gamma to...

    The OpenMemories tweak is handy for unlimited record time and time-lapse.

    If you're indoors and don't have have a high contrast scene, I would recommend setting gamma to ITU709 and color mode to...

    Ideally you would add more light, however, raising the ISO to ETTR should yield less apparent noise. Flat profiles raise the noise floor, and ETTR helps counteracts the higher noise floor.

    You need to expose to the right (ETTR) with flat profiles to avoid excessive noise.

    Do those shots really warrant using the Flaat 11 profile? Flaat 11 is intended to extend your camera's latitude...

    To reiterate a couple things previously mentioned, Apple killed Shake and rolled out FCPX with tons of missing features, so there's precedent for Apple killing and crippling popular software. I don't...

    Is Fusion not a replacement for AE, granted there will be a learning curve? Have you tried Affinity Photo as a PS alternative?

    If we're losing people who've "out grown" the site, then perhaps we should try to attract people who are new to video.

    Since the video DSLR revolution, photographers have started experimenting...
