    Nobody in their right mind would buy a clearly un loved expensive item described as 'untested' for even a grand - are people stupid? It could be the buy of the year, if you already have the...

    Gel has never been cheap, and the price of LED gel reflects the quantities sold. It's a consumable anyway. As for flame retardant? They cannot control what people will do with it, and I've already...

    It's the interaction of gentle curves that is the key feature. If you look on the Lee Filter website you can see the spectral curve of all their filters and they are moderate to reasonably steep...

    I too would be very reticent to have published this - one Rec ent job with a broadway star effectively meant that all the material shot - a mix of video and stills was subject to approvals, and it...

    Assuming you mean it's using ACTIVE loudspeakers, then they're all a bit different. Many have loop through line level inputs on XLR, where the sub could be fed from the top, or vice versa. A few...

    What has happened to video? I'm really sorry, but until you can put quality glass on a larger sensor, the quality of images means surely that iPhones, even the 11 pro max is a convenience camera? ...

    Just remember depth of field is simply the result of lens physics - so narrower, faster shutter speeds and wider apertures reduce it, and wider, slow shutters and tiny apertures increase it. You then...

    I'm too old to see wedding videos as anything other that documentary, rather than epic, so I guess thankfully I've become obsolete. Watching some wedding stuff proves I'm wildly behind the times in...

    I'd not contact the family at all, and be practical. Your client has passed on, and you still need to make a living - so I'd be contacting them all explaining that you've had a great relationship...

    I JUST CAN'T READ THIS TOPIC. For years we've stuck to technically supported, industry standard tips and fixes and suddenly we've thrown physics out of the window and started on the most...

    Trouble is wedding clients have no interest in 'art' - so if it's grainy and horrible they'll ask for it to be 'normal' - so you are stuck. I'd also suggest the noise reduction. Only needed it once,...

    If somebody produced and marketed a camera with teeny lenses and few professional facilities we'd laugh, yet we happily faun over phone cams and find excuses for them. Nobody shoots critical one...

    Choosing a common band also of course gives everyone access to everything - so if the Deacon is being put through the PA, and the video needs a feed, then tune too the same channel and share the...

    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...

    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...
