    I got a paper advertisement in the mail that had them at $150 in Ankeny Iowa. I'm not sure if you can order it online for $150, or if you have to go into the store on Black Friday. It will be...

    I think the 5D MK II shots in Act of Valor were run through DarkEnergy and exported to DPX; however, this method isn't needed in software like Resolve that operates in a 32-bit floating point.

    I really wish that Nikon would release an APS-C hybrid stills/video camera with internal 10-bit N-Log, zebras, waveform, & scopes. I begrudgingly bought an A6300 before Nikon had a viable mirrorless...

    Mounting the TV high won't be an issue if you can recline the couch to achieve the correct viewing angle.

    Here's a couple DIY mods to consider (if you don't plan on moving anytime soon):

    A mirrorless camera seems to be the cheapest continuous record option, outside of a consumer camcorder, but I wonder how cheap they could get a used 1080P camcorder with XLR inputs that writes to...

    I put up a bunch of Sanus wall mounts back when I was installing home theater systems. The LG 84" weighed more than I did, so it was very important to have a good mount when TVs were heavier. I just...

    I know the situation is far from ideal, but I'm just trying to roll with the punches.

    I read that the 5D doesn't output audio over HDMI, so I tried this HDMI capture device with a mic input, but I...

    Specific gear recommendations are helpful, as there may be good options that I've overlooked.

    I didn't have a C-stand on the last video I shot for my parents, so I just put the AT875R on a regular...
  10. I wish I could be more specific on a budget for...

    I wish I could be more specific on a budget for audio gear, but I think it's best to present my parents with a few different options at different price points and see if they like any of them.
  11. I'm leaning toward a lav option for mics, but...

    I'm leaning toward a lav option for mics, but want to also consider supercardioid options. I just remembered the Takstar sgc-598, but it has a regular cardioid polar pattern, so it probably wouldn't...
  12. My Mom doesn't want any mics in the shot, but I...

    My Mom doesn't want any mics in the shot, but I think she'd be okay with lavs. They want to sit side-by-side and look directly into the lens, so they could definitely get by with one supercardioid...

    My dad would be comfortable manually focusing with his 5D, But I still have to convince him to let me install magic lantern on his camera, he’s rather nervous about that sort of thing, I on the other...

    They don't have much money to put into this at the moment, and I want them to prioritize audio, so that's why I'm trying to make it work with cameras that they already have.

    I plan to make an OBS...
  15. Need gear recommendations for talking-head videos

    My parents would like to make talking-head workshop videos, and I'd like to get them up & running with an autonomous setup that doesn't require me or my gear, so that they will have the flexibility...

    I remember reading an article by a photo retoucher, who said that retouching typically adds mass to enhance a models figure as opposed to making them look thinner. I've herd people say that most...

    Projectors require more maintenance than TVs, you'll need to clean the lens, clean/change the dust filter, and keep an eye on the lamp hours.

    I maintenance the projectors at work, and I've had...

    Same here, at first I thought that Walmart was scamming everyone. I placed three orders only to have it tell me that the TV was out of stock, but the fourth try went through somehow. I sniped the TV...

    If HDR is important to you, look at TVs with full array local dimming. I think the cheapest option that look decent are the TCL 6 series and Vizio M series, but I'm not sure about the longevity of...
  21. Parabolic softboxes vs. regular softboxes

    What do you guys think about this video on parabolic softboxes vs. regular softboxes? The video is specific to photography, but the principles should carry over.

    Depending on the shot, a CPL can really help in holding highlight detail. It looks like there are a number of people who made their own flat profiles and are advertising them as C-Log for DSLRs,...

    My Nikon's 64 Mbps bitrate hack helps me push the files further than normal, but I'm only making slight adjustments. After applying a corrective LUT, I generally apply a little selective contrast,...

    I've shot with flat profiles on my Nikon, they're a compromise, but sometimes it's worth it to hold highlight detail. Flat profiles raise the noise floor, reduce perceived detail, and increased...

    AF might have come in handy for Wolf Hall's (2015) wide open hand-held shots. In an interview, Gavin Finney said the AC had to tweak focus as he inhaled and exhaled. Here's the interview:...
