  1. Do stock footage licenses hold up to reality? (Enjoining & injunctive relief)

    If you're looking for review of the latest Sony camera, you'll find dozens of them. If you're looking for distribution information... good luck.

    Thanks for all the responses - happy to be wrong in this case, and glad to hear there are many possible ways to improve my situation, because I might do the same shoot again in a month.

    Shot a first project with a couple of (rented) C200's, and I'm processing the footage for post now (in Premiere CC2018). The reality of having to choose between RAW and MP4 just hit me...

    I assume you meant "a LANC controller". I posted a very similar question last week... zero answers so far. Also posted in the Sony forums, only crickets.

    They sure do - the RM-30BP. I've been on a...
  5. FS7: FS5/FS7 LANC lens control - any RM-30BP owners?

    I'm trying to put together a remote head solution on a budget. I'd love to use the FS5/FS7 paired with the new servo zooms for it.

    They offer excellent value, but require LANC control to get full...

    At least for California, the advice djkarn105 gave (and received) is absolutely wrong. The duration or short time limits of the job are largely irrelevant. But that old post was also in 2011, and in...

    That's exactly what I'm saying. I'd be happy to find that I'm wrong. I foolishly only checked this visually and not with a waveform monitor, which would make it very clear. There are also plenty of...

    FS7: FS7 lets you change ISO without realizing it

    One more idea, if you want something lighter or more compact than full-sized V-mount and Anton-Bauer bricks: Sony EX1, EX3 and F3 owners are familiar with BP-U batteries, which offer the same...

    I have no plans to be a Sony F55 soon, but I just noticed that one of its accessories is the Sony DVF-L700 - a 7" onboard LCD with a full 1080p panel. Besides a proprietary 26pin viewfinder...

    Why is this program called 5DtoRGB when it has nothing to do with RGB? Everything about its features implies that it stays in YUV space... doesn't instill confidence.
