    Mid-season clip reel, to be updated once the season finishes airing.

    As seen in the picture above, I'm using Blackmagic SDI to HDMI micro converters on the first two inputs, and a Blackmagic bi-directional converter on the third input which is also converting the HDMI...
  3. Three SDI inputs (two with loop out) and SDI out...

    Three SDI inputs (two with loop out) and SDI out for program. Last box is a USB power hub for powering the converters. It's going into a rack cart otherwise I would be refining this further (the...

    Yes, got it. I have been using their switchers for five years for an entirely different workflow than they market so I'm used to thinking outside the box with them. I would just expect that this...

    All it takes to make a self-leveling head is a parallelogram design, or a cable or gear to imitate same. It should be a ground level basic of jib/crane design. Hearing that there are products out...

    They do show and describe some workflows where the HDMI is being used as a program feed, i.e. to an outboard recorder.



    Just tested that with the Quicktime player viewed full screen out via...

    It may be but I would think there would be a lot of users (houses of worship, live events with monitors for audience etc) that would use the HDMI as the program feed.

    I may try today to use an...

    Right, but there isn't a dedicated monitoring port other than the program output (and the USB-C output as noted above) (the Television Studio HD has a separate multiviewer port). So even if they...

    Well, physically it only has HDMI out and USB-C out (which pushes video into a computer as a video source) designated for program output. Doesn't really leave much room for a multiview output. The...

    I own the original version of the flextrack concept which was marketed by Losmandy along with their Spider dolly with articulating arms. Bought it in early 2000's and used it as recently as last year...

    ATEM Mini is now shipping, received mine yesterday. It is really tiny and so far seems to be living up to expectations. I think many have expressed annoyance that there is only a program output and...

    I had long admired Willis' work (who hadn't) and finally had a chance to meet the man. It was 1992 and he was in Northampton, MA to shoot what was to be one of his last films, "Malice", which is...

    Hardly! Multiple cameras doesn't mean a sitcom (and cameras and actors move around plenty in sitcoms too). Most of what you are seeing on TV and in features is shot multiple cameras without these...

    Good points, Mitch. I used to own a set of Hot Gears (as seen in the picture you posted--I assume those are Mitch Dubin's). Very handy for remote operation, quick conversion to and from conventional...

    Yes, a foreground cross in the middle of a moving shot like that would be a particularly difficult version of a planned wipe. You'd have to make sure the wipe happened on both sides exactly timed to...

    Multiple cameras per scene.

    Say for example you are shooting single camera, you start with the master at 24mm then want to move into coverage on a medium shot on a 35. Your preference is to shoot...

    It doesn't come across well with the compression online, but it only stays dark for a short time in the film, then a long slow ramp up as if one's eyes are adjusting to the light.



    It depends...

    I can't speak for that job but I have done jobs over the years where the mandate is to operate "badly" (of course there will be a buzzword used like "energy" or "organically") with the intent of...

    To each his own. I think that can get a little dogmatic. There's a good argument to be made about consistency within a scene, such as matching coverage on characters having a conversation (or...

    SHORT: Brief

    This is a short film put together by some close friends and I agreed to shoot it for them. My camera/Steadicam operator Neal Bryant was very excited to do a 12 min one'r, he had always expressed...

    I regularly shoot on Varicam at the 5000 ISO native setting and under-rate it. On my current series my standard ISO is 2000 down from 5000. Gives me plenty of latitude in any direction I choose--1...

    The challenge for them is that their jobs are essentially binary: is it in focus, or isn't it? Obviously there are degrees of both but that's mostly what it comes down to. I do think it is an easier...

    I had thought about responding to this but in all honesty, the last time I pulled focus was in the 80's!
