    I've only compared recorders on paper, and can't offer any real advice -- but the Atomos seems to limit the 1080 to 30p, but the BM recorder lists 1080 60p as an option, which seems a significant...

    There is a reason why the guys that took science in school design lenses ... not the guys that took theatre!

    If you mean the transition from inside to outside, that's what I've always called a 'natural wipe' -- you use the objects in the frame and a dissolve to create an effect similar to a wipe. You see...

    The original reason for a 180 degree shutter was mechanical simplicity. When you actually look at the complex machinations necessary to move celluloid, then stop celluloid, expose it, then move it...

    If your goal is motion blur -- and I'm not saying it should be, just that if it is -- you can achieve the same motion blur by selecting the appropriate shutter speed. You can still use 1/60 of a...

    The 'juddery' look doesn't come from a higher frame rate, it comes from a higher shutter speed. The shorter the shutter speed, the bigger the motion jump between frames ... even if the frame rate is...

    The problem with this statement is it implies that 'avi' files are lossless -- in fact avi like mov only tells us the 'wrapper' format; the codec that is wrapped is the important thing. avi files,...

    I'm confused by the fact that both 1/30th and 1/500th of a second look similar -- the difference should be striking, with the first using much motion blur to mask the strobe effect, the second...

    Glad to be of help. Note that it is important that you checked playback in the DV camcorder ... many camcorders wouldn't have played it, as the recording is likely NOT a DV recording. The camera...

    Although I'm a little confused about how you know you can view the footage on your computer if you can't transfer it ... your questions are pretty straightforward.

    1) Yes, a simple Firewire port...

    Note too that '20/20' vision is not very good ... in fact, it is the lowest end of what might be called typical vision. Many, maybe even most, have better than that -- my own tired old eyes have...

    In the first few seconds, when the drummer swings his sticks they blur -- this is by definition NOT the strobe effect. I don't like the look of the frame rate in those early frames, and maybe that's...

    Not sure what to look for in your file ...

    The strobe effect, so called because it resembles a live scene lit with a flashing strobe light, is typically created when the shutter speed is too high...

    Adam Wilt of course did the test correctly -- he also used the right terminology, save for the fact that ultimately he confused horizontal and vertical. It is impossible, that is to say there is no...

    I don't think you need to worry about SECAM -- far as I know, SECAM production is shot in PAL and only turned into SECAM at the last stage of prepartion for broadcast. I think all DVDs remain PAL,...

    What they said. Though I'm surprized no one mentioned the Canon T3i -- surely the sweet spot for cine-use dslrs with a Canon mount. APS-C chip is basically S35 sized, uses either Canon EF or EF-S...

    Respectfully, I think you have it backwards -- the DVD is encoded with pulldown (telecine) embedded, but a smart player can skip the pulldown instructions and play it back as 24p. Emphasis on smart...

    Hmm. I'm note sure I buy your limited definition of telecine -- 60i is but one option in the telecine choices. And yes, some players can look at a DVD and remove the telecine frame repeating, but...

    I suggest that the realities of manufacturing may give us 4k displays, whether we 'need' them or not. In the HDTV market, you can only get 1080 spec sets in large sizes -- a few years ago you had a...

    As I said, it wouldn't convert those that weren't fans of the original -- in this case Conan Doyle's "The Final Problem" resolves the ongoing combat with Moriarty. It wasn't a whodunit -- it was a...

    Well, I guess I have to disagree, in that 'Warhorse' isn't 'schlock', in the sense that is done badly or incompetently -- though I can cheerfully accept that you don't like it, and wouldn't have done...

    At the risk of stating the obvious -- the style of the cinematography was a choice, a conscious decision. The style sends a signal, it frames the intent of the narrative. That is not to say you are...
