    There's absolutely something to be said for the group experience of watching a movie. Jokes are funnier, drama more intense, action more exciting.

    To this day my most memorable cinema...

    To add to Noah's comment on the Nucleus Nano, the thing is only $235. With some cabling and mounts maybe $300. It's worth investing in a Nucleus M motor (another $250), which is much beefier than...

    It's the slippery slope argument. Theater chains want to keep a minimum 90-day window even though they would make the vast amount of their money in the first three weeks. The problem is that the...

    One of the nicest aspects of wireless control systems is that they allow the human beings to remotely do their work. This means that it's easier to get multiple cameras covering a scene without...

    You’re not stuck at either native ISO unless you choose to be. You can add or subtract gain to either on the fly just as you would from any other camera. But when you leave the native ISO it will...

    If your camera has a native ISO of 800 and you set it to 400 ISO, then you are reducing the dynamic range by one stop, clipping off the top. On the VariCam this would mean going from 14.7 stops (8...

    Depth of field functions on some basic mathematical properties. If you switch dramatically between focal lengths then this would be jarring no matter what the aperture is set to. In general I remain...

    I like a consistent t-stop within a scene and sometimes throughout an entire movie. The reason being that my eye and brain get comfortable to a certain level of exposure and that leads to a...

    Not quite. Super-35 was resurrected as a format in the early 80s and became fairly popular by the end of that decade. Jim Cameron was a champion of the format, working out a complex custom frame line...

    Yeah, and I still say it's contextual as it refers to how much attention we pay to our peripheral vision. Human angle of view is something like 120 degrees, but we pay attention to something between...

    YouTube Spaces shoots live music performances all the time, mostly using EVA1 cameras kitted out for a live studio style configuration.

    Part of my rage against the so-called normal lens is that over the years there’s been a good deal of pseudo-science and math doodled up on it. There are people with math theories based on the...

    Normal is based on societal norms. I like to be closer to the screen and fill my vision more than most others. So a “normal” lens looks incorrect, at least it does if I’m not also someone who like to...

    No point in dogging the OP for not finding the S1H appropriate to his needs. If workflow/file naming is important - and I can absolutely see where that would be true owning a VariCam HS and a...

    Focal length indicates how much magnification is occurring within the lens. But a lens has no idea what is behind it so it doesn't know how much of the projected cone of light will be used. Think...

    It sounds like for you and the way you prefer to use your gear that a VariCam LT or perhaps a mildly accessorized EVA1 would be a better choice.

    There's a reason we offer different modes. Horses...
