    Jurassic Park; Fallen Kingdom

    Besides the name, and the occasional reference to JP and John Hammond, the franchise has jumped the preverbal shark, or in this case the Mosasaur.

    SPOILER alerts, I suppose, but my thoughts are...

    10 years later.

    For many years I was with InsureMyEquipment (https://www.insuremyequipment.com/Home/Insure-My-Equipment/) which is just a front for Heffernan Insurance. I was...

    Just like shooting non-macro, you need to ask yourself about how you'd like the compression to look. I can shoot a person with a 50mm and I can shoot a person with a 100mm.... I can get the same...

    A little off topic, but when I read documentary and events, I immediately thought zooms too. However, some documentaries aren't all spontaneous, and you can use prime sets and more traditional...

    Thought I'd post this funny Chinese salesperson's theft of my article. Although posted five years after the debut here, they thought it wise to launder the article through a language translator and...

    The absolute best way to keep condensation off the camera is to keep it in a sealed container while it acclimates.

    It is as simple as a plastic bag, as you mentioned.

    They make lens hoods that are threaded. I use a rubber 82mm hood that can be adjusted to three positions depending on lens FoV

    I own a lot of vintage nikons with 52mm fronts. I use a 52mm -> 62mm ring + 62mm-72mm ring + 72mm-> 82mm ring.

    I also have a 77mm -> 82mm ring.

    So I can use my 82mm filters on 52, 62, 72, 77...

    I bought a set of 82mm Firecrest IRND's and stepping rings down for all my lens threads below. 82mm is pretty future proof for 90% of photography lenses. I use these on cinema lenses sometimes (drone...

    I am not home to check my Nikon mounts, but that looks like the arse end of a CP.2.... if it's not PL, and it's not EF, it would be Nikon F mount.

    For what I work on almost all Arri work is 3.2k ProRess 4444 in LOG capture and ProResHQ 1080 deliver. When using Red it's almost always 5k-6k capture and 1080 finish with maybe a 4k master that...

    That is interesting. I don't know what cameras you shoot though, because none I work with can do that. I think the C300 might have some sort of long shutter mode. Otherwise, this is new to me. Arri...

    What's great is that you can also frame up the camera without the camera being on!

    As mentioned you can save weight by removing the OVF if you don't want it and just operate via a monitor feed or...

    +100

    Variable ND is terrible. When used on the higher ND end, it will create uneven and strange artifacts. If you absolutely have to, and will not have time to change ND's, than go for it. If you...

    Not to take us down another road, but to add, the Cooke 20-100 is a 1970's lens, and the much newer (1980's) 18-100 is much better. If considering a 20-100, PLEASE test an 18-100. It's my favorite...

    It's 'smooth' like say, pretty much every lens that gets made for photography or cinema reasons.
