    Sums up my opinion to a tee!

    Audiphools are objectively subjective or subjectively objective. Nobody has designed a test meter at any price that can measure audio quality, because nobody can...

    I had an image of New Zealand as a bright, colourful magical place - but the overal look of the short was a bit depressing. The ending especially after the credits - as the upbeat section, that girl...

    College and university kids are just big kids, and the snooty attitude is usually (certainly in the uK) provided by the teaching staff who determine 'quality'. If you want to show lighting off,...

    Vinten used to make cameras in WW2, because they were an engineering company, who already had the machinery in the factory and critically, the staff who knew how to use it. As soon as it was no...

    Have I misunderstood the topic? Are we talking about studio multicam 'TV shows', or the more film style productions? I suspect I misunderstood totally, probably "TV show" conjuring up in my...

    I suppose it's because film making can be a solo sport, or at least it often appears to be. individuals can make movies, hiring in the key people, but I can't imagine how any of the tV shows I've...

    When I smashed one of my two prompters, I needed a replacement in a hurry and had no idea of the spec, so the glass company suggested the stuff that was used in old overhead projectors and they...

    Today cleaning out a cupboard in the store - I came across two flight cases - one has ANOTHER of those Ampex cameras in it, but with a Fujinon lens, and the other has DXC-537 camera bolted to a Hi8...

    Recommended distances, with decimal point results are as daft now as they were in the 70's when 26" was considered huge! The figures are seemingly based on subjective criteria that change so...

    19ms would be unacceptable in my audio DAW, quite noticeable, and as video editors work in frames, what happens if both mics hear the same source? A voice perhaps and you cannot align them on the...

    Going back to the original post - I prefer that to the now heavily processed version. Surely we are really talking about a very average recording with poor signal to noise. We can try to repair...

    You try them again, side by side and do the test. My guess is simply a fault that will either return or never show up again. Hiss I have never found from a grounding issue, only hum. Unexpected hiss...

    All the common OB style camera headsets reduce noise to a safe level (Peltors and the Bose aviation series worn on flight lines) but their audio quality is not wonderful. It's brilliant for hearing...

    Unless I'm being thick - in the good old days, we'd have fixed this simply by turning up the treble - not faffing around with parametric or graphics - it's a bit dull, so turn the treble up - that...

    What? You mean the follow spot? Most LED followspots have colour fringing around the beam, which is present in that video. HMI have a pretty sharp projection and minimal fringing. However, cheap...

    Can't say for the US, but long cable runs here would fall foul of our fairly tough electrical regs and the issue for us would be disconnect time in a fault condition. Plus of course our rules on...

    I was kind suggesting that the white card approach in the camera is the best way to start. The article on colour correction is a kind of repair job, and I've done the same thing myself, but also had...

    er, the area of constant hue has to fill the frame. the camera has no way of detecting which bit of the picture it's supposed to use as a reference. You either need to zoom to fill the frame, or move...
