    Thanks for the reply. I figured the rising temperatures would pose a problem as I assume the amount of contraction and expansion would be virtually microscopic in size. I am glad you recovered all...

    If I were you, I would send the old drive to a data recovery company. It would be worth it to spend $300 to recover $6500 of data.

    Batutta, did you lose data or was data corrupted? I thought at least some data loss or corruption would be a likelihood when the read arm crashes into the platters. How long did you keep it in the...

    I remember the 3D fad in the 1980s. I think I saw two movies in 3D and the fad fizzled out within about two years. I have not seen Avatar, but based on all the buzz about it, I am assuming it must be...

    Thanks, Joe. At closer inspection, I can see the small lens hood. I usually use a hand-held mic, which has more flexibility than an on-camera mic in that you can get it close to your subject's mouth...

    Does anyone know if the low light sensitivity has been improved over the HMC40?

    Joe, thanks for posting. I am almost certain to get the TM700 and considering the Rode SVM. I have seen raving reviews of the Rode, but I was wondering how it compares to others of its type. Have you...

    I have usually been very satisfied with the audio on my camcorders, provided I bypass the internal camera microphone and use external microphones plugged into the camera (with an XLR adapter). The...

    Oh no! If all you have is the one channel of audio from the shotgun mic, the only thing I can think of is to use an equalizer to enhance the sound quality. One channel of poor audio is better than no...

    The nomenclature has evolved along with the technology over the years. ‘Prosumer’ and ‘Videographer’ were new terms 20 years ago. I would agree something at Best Buy would generally be consumer....

    Speaking of clients wanting to pay nothing, I have seen ads on Craigslist from people seeking free videography services. I can imagine someone starting out in the business and doing a freebie to get...

    I agree the boundaries have shifted, but they have also blurred in many cases. Although it is lower than the HDCAM, Sony does market the EX1 as a "CineAlta"camera, just as they do the HDCAM. And...

    I recall it was Sony that coined that term about 20 years ago, when they introduced camcorders that were more than 'consumer' quality, but a bit short of professional standards. It really is more of...

    Barry, I read your review of AVCCAM vs. XDCAM-EX. Based on your observations and sample images, AVCCAM is at least as good in quality, but with higher bit efficiency (24 vs 35 Mbps) and instant...

    I agree. Based on the announced details, this camera will substantially exceed the performance and features of an HD camera of a comparable price just a few years ago. Although $6,000 is more than my...

    I agree. It is not scheduled to be released for more than six months and no firm price has been announced. The price of the HMC40 was substantially lower upon its release than the initial estimated...

    That is a nice looking camera. I sort of missed that form factor, which is similar to my old Sony V5000 Hi8 camera I used in the 1990s. Of course, the HMC80 would be vastly superior.

    I don't have a GH1, but if I wanted to get a DSLR type camera immediately, it would be a GH1. Among the HD DSLR cams, it has the best video capabilities, which is what I would be looking for, such as...

    I often think about that. As technology has improved at a faster pace, the less and less patient we become. Before the internet, you may have learned of new cameras by either going to a trade show or...

    You are correct that freedom of speech laws were intended to protect unpopular speech, but that is not the issue in this case. The controversy is not over her making a nude video, but that it was...

    Can you ask if Panasonic or any other manufacturer plan to feature GPS (geo-tagging) in future cameras, as Sony is doing with their cameras. Thanks!

    I actually liked 'District 9.' I didn't see 'Avatar' but I agree with your criticism about it. Even some people who said they liked 'Avatar' thought the story was weak. If a film is more...
