    C200: Way back in the early '80s, I had a Canon 2/3"...

    Way back in the early '80s, I had a Canon 2/3" ENG zoom on my Ikegami - probably their cheapest 13:1 SD servo lens, with the old B3 mount. Two days before a big important shoot, a couple of the iris...

    Panasonic UX90, UX180 or CX350 would be my recommendations. All are 4K cameras with a 1" sensor but produce decent 1080p. The UX180 has a longer lens than the UX90 (possibly valuable for sports) and...

    In the same vein as studying music theory but from a different angle, a college course I took on "acoustic phonetics" - basically the physics and anatomy of sound production in the human vocal tract...

    I use a CX350 and EVA1 for the bulk of my shooting, but there are subjects and situations when it would be helpful to have a small camera with even deeper DOF than the CX350. The footage I've seen...

    Where did the cat go between the first and second pictures? Make sure your gel rolls aren't meowing. :-)

    Make sure you get the right kind. The BLUE Loctite can be loosened with a bit of force, but the RED is intended for permanent bonds and can only be removed by essentially burning it out with a torch....

    I watched both the launch and recovery of the Crew Dragon on NASA TV and the thing that struck me most was the anchors, who seemed like recent college grads in their first TV news jobs, haltingly...

    I suspect masks will look really quaint by the time Ryan finishes writing, financing, shooting and editing his movie. If we're not all dead by then.

    I totally get how frustrating this can be, but I've been lucky enough so far that I've never lost any footage on a SD card and therefore have no experience with the software that's available. After...

    Did you lock the card with the little physical slider immediately after removing it from the camera? That's SOP to minimize the possibility of damage during offloading and other handling. It's...

    I have yelled and screamed this exact point at poor Ryan on several previous occasions. I've come to the conclusion that not only does he not like to experiment, it's far from certain that he has the...

    Too bad they didn't follow through. That would probably have made them some money.

    Disappointed by the event overall. They had a wide variety of loosely related bits and pieces, but the discounts were very modest. I was expecting something more like the B&H daily deals where you...

    7247 wasn't introduced until 1974 when Vietnam was already starting to wind down. It's far more likely that a film crew in that era would have been shooting its predecessor, 7254. (The first feature...

    That Brakhage film reminds me that when I first started out teaching media production, we used to give our elementary school age students a 10' length of clear 16mm film leader and a box of colored...

    Although I'm reasonably OK with the current performance of my setup, I'll get an extension cable and try it out. Couldn't hurt even though I remain skeptical!

    I, too, grew up on professional ENG...

    I think much of the price difference between the PX270 and CX350 is explained by their having moved the manufacturing to China.

    To respond to a few random points ...

    I like the onboard zoom...

    I'm not particularly impressed with ANY of the LCDs when shooting outdoors, including the DVX200, which washes out quite easily. In fact, I use them very little, and depend on the rear viewfinder...

    Can you be more specific about what you see as the disadvantages of the CX350?

    I have a PX270, UX180, DVX200 and CX350 all here within a couple of feet of me, and for me, the CX350 would be the...

    Beautifully done. I couldn't help but wonder what your kids will think when they view it again 50 years from now. It will be quite a family heirloom.

    LTO tapes operate in a repeated forward and reverse manner. To oversimplify a little, a track is recorded from one end of the tape to the other, then the recording head mechanically moves down a bit...
