    If I can convince a director for an interview that a visibile mic is acceptable, I'm clipping the mic outside of the clothing. The sound quality is so much better. I have a few clients that allow it....

    I found this test very well done for comparing the IQ of the camera and how it handles colors and roll off.

    Nice, I hadn't seen that tape before. Looks good and I will have to try it out. I've always used Joe's sticky stuff for the same purpose. One nice thing about the sticky stuff is that it doesn't make...

    Compressing raw is more efficient than debayering and then compressing all of the new extrapolated data created by the debayering process. This is why Canon added the 12 bit 444 2K to the C300 MK II...

    Generally, DLD is referring to the Japanese electronics cartel, but in this case I think there may actually be a problem with the RED patents on raw recording.

    That's strange. My first and last resort is always the overcover. I buy the Rycote round stickes and sandwich the mic between the stickie and the overcover. Then I just stick the mic in the best...

    The RF lenses allow incremental aperture changes beyond the normal 1/3 stop of photo lenses. The camera also has a gradual shift from one aperture setting to the next. The result is that you can make...

    Unless a client demands it, I rarely use lavs for just that reason. Especially on sit down interviews with people in any type of uniform.

    Really, the only option is to use snot tape or Joe's...

    That's the thing. I have an EOS-R but the only RF lens I bought was the 35mm f/1.8 stm for when I needed a light prime in a pinch. If Canon had a roadmap for a full frame pro DSLR or cinema camera...

    The starched white doctor coats are extremely loud. If you are shooting people wearing those coats, I doubt it has anything to do with the clothing rubbing on the mic. It is probably just the...

    Here is a list of why the RF lenses are better for video than the EF lenses.
    - Parfocal zooms
    - 360 degree focus throw
    - Works better with DPAF
    - Ability to ride the aperture with the control...

    That's interesting. It seems of limited life since I am guessing that only the EOS-R will have the 4K crop. I really only use ef-s lenses on the camera, but if it allowed the Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 be...

    I always have the C300 II manual focus assist enabled. It does work in 60p, but I guess it doesn't work in in the SFR modes. The problem with the manual focus assist is that it only works in at least...

    Based on my limited experience with the Amira and no experience whatsoever with the C500 II, I would expect that the C500 MK II would be better than both the C300 and the Amira for doc and corporate...

    I would go for an O'Connor over a Vinten just because it has a far wider range of counterbalance. The Vinten 100 only goes down to a rated 14 lbs. Also, the counterbalance adjustment is really slow....

    I think the ACE stuff is pretty good for the price. I have a couple of ACE XL's on manfrotto 055 legs with the video center column that I use for interviews and running around. It can balance out a...

    I have both an O'Connor 1030D and a Vinten 8AS. They are rated for the same weight and they both use the same sideload plate. The Vinten costs half as much and isn't in the same league as the...

    The 35mm RF f1.8 IS isn't great for video. The IS appears to be designed for macro and doesn't allow panning. It just tries to lock on. In addition, the video auto focus is extremely slow. This might...

    I might be wrong about how other cameras work, but as an example to what I mean, the other day I was shooting a two camera interview on Canon at 800 ISO and f/4.0. During the interview, I realized...

    So, is it confirmed that the SD recorders are using dual ADC's with fixed preamps and stitching together to produce the expanded range for the 32bit float recording? Mostly, I'm confused about how...

    Just reading this makes me anxious. I offload my raw footage to two separate RAID systems and I use dual slot recording, check both cards against each other, and save my proxies.
