    As an XT3 owner, I watched the video for technical interest. I soon forgot about the camera and just appreciated the content. My complements to the artist and production team.

    I would suggest going to B&H and search for "ram mounts". There are 100's of results centered around a system based on 1" hard plastic balls and clamps. It is possible to build almost anything,...

    I have both the version 1 and 2 ice lights. V2 is brighter, and the removable battery is useful. Yes, they seem over priced, but the light always seems to work really well. Since getting an ice...

    Flapjacks provide a great diffuse light in a small efficient package... just not very bright. Works well for quick efficient fill or backlight.

    I have used the HMC 150 and AC 90 on many multicam projects, both in low light and sunlight. The AC 90 is a fine A cam in bright light. In all cases the cameras mixed well in post, (using Avid Media...

    I use a Lexar USB3 standard SDHC reader, and it works perfectly. I'm on a PC with Avid, but works exactly like having a P2 card in a PCMCIA slot.

    I have seen the "reformat" message come and go based on a flaky USB connection. Likely the data is still available on the card. Suggest putting the card in the camera and transferring the files...

    We talk a lot about technical issues around here, but I'll comment from a different approach.

    I'll assume the singers will end up with a copy of your work. I'll bet that your video will pass...

    The Panasonic P2 SD cards have a second row of contacts above the row that we are all familiar with. Seems like the extra signal path allows faster media recording, while the card is still compatible...

    My main camera is an HPX250, and I have a PIX240 and recently acquired a Samurai Blade. Once I compared P2 media to DNxHD recorded on the PIX240 ... and could not really tell a difference. Now that I...

    FYI re sensitivity: I posted the following in 2011 when I got a HPX250.

    "This is just to confirm the HPX250 sensitivity is roughly similar to the HMC150 and Cannon XHA1. I tested with a grey...

    FYI, I just pull it from the camera and use a standard SD card reader (Lexar USB3 SD/CF reader in my case).
    Avid recognizes it as P2 card format and Avid AMA works fine.

    OK, I got curious and ordered an Icelight. So far, I have just used it for still photography, and I am more impressed than I expected.

    So as expected, the light quality is quite useful, although...

    mmaller,
    Was just proposing a test to see if your camera is less sensitive than the normal HPX250 (i.e. broken). Would need a common way to calibrate the test light source though.

    mmaller,
    If you are interested, I'd propose a test to see if your camera is functioning properly in terms of sensitivity. We could both light a white wall and record the camera settings to achieve...

    I shoot the HPX250 mainly in low light. If I had shot a similar conference setting with PAP1 and had to use 6 db of gain, I might suspect that I had accidentally left a ND filter in.

    Yep, Sound Devices Pix240. Video slightly sharper maybe, but real assets in improved audio recording capability, additional monitor for exposure or focus, and more direct post workflow.

    All I can say is that I pre-ordered the HPX250 the first day it was up on B&H. The price is lower now, but I have never regretted getting it early. Although I typically blend it with AVCHD media, I...

    I shoot the 150 and 250 in mostly low light (music event) environments. They both have similar sensitivity when the 250 is in PAP2 default mode. I can see a difference in that the 250 is sharper, and...

    I fill sand bags with 45 cal copper coated lead bullets. It's the only thing you can put in a sand bag which will go up in value over time.
