    It sounds like issue is chroma noise, and film grain won't fix that. Does your editing software support noise reduction? The Fusion page in the free version of Davinci Resolve has a couple noise...

    I have Rise(UK) ones from China, and Sensei ones from B&H; mine are aluminum, but brass ones are more durable.

    Thanks Chris, I'll have to check the fabric stores in my area of the USA, Hancock and Joann's are the ones I've driven past in Des Moines.

    I put step up rings on all my lenses to bring them up to 77mm and use a variable ND filter with a rubber lens hood (the hood will vignette on ultra wide lenses though). A filter holder wouldn't allow...
  9. What kind of stretchy black fabric works as a scrim net?

    Does anyone know what kind of fabric Matthew is referring to in this video?

    Also, has anyone tried using a generic mesh tarp to cut background window light? I'd imagine that the background would...

    How about pairing it with something like Zhiyun's Telescopic Monopod? Use it like a video monopod for interviews, and collapse it down for gimbal shots.

    B&H has a bunch of options at varying prices. You can probably get used vests on eBay pretty cheap as well.

    Borrowlenses is the cheapest, but Lensrentals offers better damage/theft insurance. Lensrentals shipped the gear in Pelican cases, I'm not sure if everyone does that or not.

    It's difficult to make recommendations without knowing your exact kit, but I'm going to guess that a new light will be more useful than an anamorphic lens, and possibly more useful than a zcam f6,...

    If you start with a UHD or greater source, I doubt that the intended audience would be able to tell the difference between anamorphic and spherical 16:9 that's been cropped to 2.39:1. I know that...

    Try removing the battery and cycling the power switch on and off, let it sit for a few minutes to an hour, then try again with a battery or AC adapter.

    Flycam had major quality control issues back in the day, hopefully they're better now. It's kinda funny to watch a knock-off compared to a knock-off of a knock-off.

    Now that I've got all my clips deinterlaced, I think that I actually figured out the Fusion deinterlacing scaling issue. In Resolve's project settings, set the resolution at 1920x1080, set scaling to...

    As someone who's never used a motorized gimbal, I'd be interested in hearing your reasons for switching back to old-school steadycams.

    I went with a counter-weighted steadycam because they're...

    I got it to work by changing my GPU settings from Metal to OpenCL. I don't understand why that would make a difference, as the other videos rendered correctly with Metal. Anyway, I'm just glad that...

    Update: I had about 2.5 hours of footage to deinterlace, and am down to one 35 minute clip, but Resolve is consistently crashing on me somewhere between 3% - 20% of rendering. I'm not sure why this...

    Thanks Chris. I downloaded the trial version, but I haven't tested it yet, as my last round with Resolve and Yadif worked, although, Resolve crashes on me sometimes.
