    As far as ergonomics, all mirrorless cameras have terrible ergonomics for shooting video. They work but the ergonomics are conceived for stills shooting, which is all wrong for video. To shoot a...

    I can attest to this. In the early 2000s, we had one client who was 60% of our business. We were billing them well over a million dollars per year. Our second big client was a local print company who...

    But Wooden Nickel's website has always been like that, it's kind of endearing in a way. I've been renting and buying gear from them for more than a decade, they're a pretty good rental house.

    Wow. I didn't even know that a Zeiss 34-70 existed, interesting. I ended up using the Fujinon XF16mm f/1.4 WR on the XT-3 mounted on my Rhino EVO Motion system and some lock offs, worked great. It's...

    In my limited experience, SLog 2 and 3 are one of the most difficult to match with any other camera. Sony's peculiar color science means that their skin tones will usually bias toward magenta, plus...

    I love it. Destroying the economy and boosting Katz' in one fell swoop, I feel like Lex Luthor with a soft spot for Pastrami.

    Its funny, I was talking to a client on a shoot the other day exactly about this because she's noticed the same thing. For the first time in my multi-decade career, I literally have everything I want...
  9. The Video/Digital Cinema News Cycle is Eating Itself?

    The big headline today? "Sony a6400 2.0 Firmware Update adds Real-time Eye AF for Animals"

    Has anyone noticed traffic seems way, way down here? Very few new thread topics, mostly pontificating...

    If you want it to look good, hire a local camera person. You can always just Skype some video from your POV or just use phones to hear and have them use a marker for eyeline. Porbably best to hire a...

    I agree, just use 4K 60p and optical flow or Twixtor. Surprisingly the 120p from my cheap Fuji XT-3 is MUCH better and sharper, it's actually usable.

    Alexa Minis are expensive Go Pros. I have to say, for me, I look at Comedians in Cars with the standard three Go Pro setup in some really small, tight ass weird cars and it looks fine. I'm beginning...

    If this thread proves anything, it's an inordinate amount of male persons in our business and others only tangentially related (gaming, firearms, cars/trucks, surfboards, etc.) seem to have their own...

    Yeah, we may end up buying a cheap one over renting a high end one. We want to go really abstract and make it look very impressionist so having a super clear, ultra bright image isn't really the...

    Please tell us you aren't shooting with talent acting as they drive? I shoot interviews in cars for documentaries but I much prefer when the interviewee isn't driving.

    You said it, not me ;-) My one tip for screen and non screen writing is to write in an active voice and contractions do that.

    I agree. I shot a documentary that was produced in 2016 and sold to a cable giant for $500k, the budget was a little over $100k. I also shot another documentary in 2017-2019 that amazingly, had full...

    Thanks Bern, I'll check them out. It's a lot of trouble for probably just a title sequence but when I used to do it, I kind of went nuts with it, I think I bought half a dozen projectors and started...

    It's the epitome of hubris to a point, but thinking like an Apple marketing guy, "The customers who're going to buy this thing won't give a s*%t, make a it a grand!"
