    One person? A radio lav, and a couple of cardioids on stands as overheads for the cooking sounds. Shotguns need accurate and precise aiming - no good on a moving subject. TV shows always use lavs...

    I thought I'd got it, then the conversation made me think I haven't.

    I think this is something we'll not really understand here - so I daren't ever use it, because I'd get it wrong. Have fun.

    Please forgive me, but I have read this topic, and as an old timer thought I might add something - but I have absolutely no idea what it's about "You do You" what is that? I've never ever heard the...

    I’ve been doing lighting for over forty years and although most was theatre rather than video, some things don’t change. There have always been premium products in every type and power, and for me,...

    I've got to say the same things - and I still have two of the manfrotto heads. They're OK to use as lockodd heads - I have them fixed to cast base microphone stands so I can use them to get small...

    This is intriguing - I tried it on speakers and sounded quite normal, so I tried on my IEMs and something odd happened. The footsteps went BEHIND me, not in front. Anyone else hear this? Really...

    I struck lucky with an example quite quickly.

    Here are two files. The stereo one is recorded with a zoom, with the fixed X/Y mics, with the foam windshield covered in a fur fabric extra...

    Clearly, what you and I think acceptable are different. It's not a problem for you, so that's fine. I don't record stereo outside now, or for the past ten years maybe? I don't like the result, so I...

    Pressure vs pressure gradient? Still pressure. Next time you are outside recording put a point source dead centre and watch the result on a stereo phase meter. Watch it wobble all over the place....

    Everyone is forgetting the plain and simple facts here. Stereo imaging and an accurate stereo field rely on two physical properties, time arrival and pressure. Outside there is a big problem - the...

    The blade runner scene is just very cleverly put together - the blending of lots of different elements. Absolutely real haze, but I'm also guessing there are colours here. The background is lit with...

    I try to imagine what they will do with my limited audience videos. Sometimes, I know they will date dreadfully, so I'm happy to grant licences in perpetuity - sounds good to them to have it for...

    I often smile at these kinds of things when we sort of reinvent things, claim them as new and amazing and then create a market for a product that is often sort of a mistake.

    For me - the best bit about ENG cameras was the trend to keep the controls in the same place and work the same way. You could put down your Sony, pick up a P2 and most things were exactly where you...

    I think I know the clips you mean and those would be very soft, I’m cool with this. I liked those channels in UHD and above, but I would never get a return on the equipment costs, so I’ve no interest...

    I've used a 500, and if one came up for the right money - I'd buy one still. For me the thing really is the lack of recording formats - so it will do 1080i/60, or other versions at the usual...
