    I do some event and documentary work. I've also done a couple weddings in the way past. No, you don't have time to turn off a camera to change lenses when a key scene is happening. Also, if I am...

    The only time I've made a point to turn off the camera before changing lenses was when I had an aftermarket AF dandelion chip attached. I might be wrong, but I'm guessing most people are not shutting...

    One of the nice things about the Zacuto lens support is that it supports the lens in all directions so that the lens mount doesn't take much stress. I've had cameras hit the ground and the lens not...

    I have two C300 MKII's that travel with the CN-E compact servos attached in their case. They both have baseplates and rods attached for the lens support. Even when I'm shooting handheld, I find the...

    I have the small rig vct baseplate 1954 and it has the ability to raise and lower the rods. The Zacuto universal baseplate also has this ability. I would very much suggest getting the Zacuto's 18-80...

    I have my Canon C500 MKII on a Zhiyun Crane 3S. I also spent the past year with an EOS R on a Crane 2. My more elaborate setup is a Ready Rig and Ronin. I was never able to have the patience to learn...

    My primary mics are Schoeps. At the time I was buying, I didn't hear much else that was compelling. Neumann's shotguns actually sounded "better" to me, but they weren't nearly as transparent. My ears...

    About 50% of my work is doing sound for corporate and docs. I also do some no budget narrative. Offering up services as both a camera op/DP and sound is not a good business decision, but I have one...

    The original mixpres and the new mixpres aren't really the same product. The older mixpres are preamps to feed a recorder and the new mixpres are really meant as recorders. I'm not sure why they used...

    I actually have a mixpre-d, which I believe have been discontinued. They can be found used, though. I use mine on all of my OMB or small crew shoots for interviews or events. Big LED's for levels....

    I split the difference on most of my shoots and use a sound devices mixpre to send line level signal to the Canon cameras. I have never been able to hear a significant difference between an internal...

    I haven't heard any government official mention "flattening the curve" in weeks. Currently, the purpose of the lockdown is to limit the risks of people getting infected. Therefore, the considerations...

    But can you catch it from sitting on a toilet seat?

    The fear of AIDS and the general misunderstanding of the risks back then were pretty extreme.

    As someone who regularly gets gigs as a sound recordist, I've always found the assumption that lavs should be used to be counterproductive. Unless talent is moving around or you have a DP that...

    The only reason I can think of to wear gloves is that they allow you to clean your hands with alcohol more often without destroying your skin. Maybe if you put some on right before putting a lav on...

    All of the RF lenses and the RF mount have been designed for continuous autofocus with DPAF. The system is supposedly faster and allows more options for speed. I would assume that RF lenses would...

    It will be a bit like the EOS R. Pixel peepers looking at a chart will be able to notice it, but you won't be able to notice a difference if you are cutting between stabilized and non-stabilized...

    You can have the mount replaced with a PL mount, but it isn't cheap.

    I'm really interested to see how this sorts itself out. Right now, in many states it is technically against the rules to do nonessential business. Almost all of my work is on location. Will...
