    I've worked with both the still/ART and the Cine versions of the Sigma zooms, and the Canon 70-200 (both f4 and the FANTASTIC f2.8), but not the Canon 18-80. I own the Sigma ART 18-35 and have rented...

    The financial boondoggle that is the Olympics has long been criticized as wasteful. Frankly, I think it's good that people are finally paying attention. I'd like it to be more of a sporting...

    I haven't seen an official announcement yet. What I did see was that Dick Pound, a longtime IOC member (whom I've interviewed a few times) but who is not currently on the IOC Executive Board, told...

    Thanks for that. As I mentioned, I haven't done much live streaming, and when I do, I don't run the board. So the preview screens I've glanced at were all multiview, so I conflated the terms. D'oh....

    Yes, there are lots of weird variables with livestreaming. Luckily, I know some IT stuff (from past jobs and from growing up in Silicon Valley). Still a bunch I don't know.

    Sorry to sound cranky, but I think part of the issue with the NAB wasn't just that they'd worked hard on the show... More that they count on the $25-million (or so) net profit to fund their lobbying...

    Mcbob, the website says you can, "Save rough footage or final cut video by connecting an external hard drive to the USB-A 3.1 port." Presumably in h.264.
