  1. 20 years ago when I was living with another...

    20 years ago when I was living with another Steadicam operator, we used to joke about using the cost of an average Steadicam cable ($175) as a yardstick to measure all other expenses. "Got a good...

    I'm not affiliated with Topaz either, but I have used this software since before it was ported to Mac (when you had to upload it to their server to upscale for a fee). Thank you for reminding me that...

    Deserved perhaps, but it's hardly humble to describe oneself that way, one leaves that up to others (or your publicist, ha). This is just a personal reflection of mine, I don't necessarily expect...

    I hear you on this in theory, Eric. I recognized that weird discrepancy between primetime and regional Emmys years ago and have always reacted negatively to those who have flaunted their regional...

    Well, there are stories I could tell about those wild and wooly days of HD transmitters, as I was first working with each company that came to prominence...the IDX Camwave, the Boxx Meridien, then...

    I wouldn't expect so, Rob. The Connex units are nominally 12v, the actual range is 8-26v for the transmitter and 7-19v for the receiver.

    Unless they have changed in recent years, Nyrius uses the...

    Meant to say, sold the transmitter and kept the receiver, but you probably figured that out!

    I see that deal at Adorama, good price. I recently picked up a used complete Connex (not mini) system for $950 and sold the receiver for $400--so got the Fusion receiver for $550, was happy with that...

    Great, Rob! Let us know how you get on with it. I'm still using mine in many configurations with plenty of success. How much did you snag the Mini for?

    That effect would be easy enough to do with a narrow PAR bulb or an M16 or equivalent. But if those any of those were installed into those fixtures, they would not produce that even a spread and...

    Maybe I'm mis-reading but there have been a number of successful stand-up comedy theatrical features--Eddie Murphy had Delirious, and Raw; Richard Pryor's Live on the Sunset Strip, all quite...

    Maybe I'm not reading this right, but for me anyway shooting up to then after the sun sets means a gradual INcline from 5600K up to the neighborhood of 10,000K if you are trying to maintain the same...

    John, interesting story about Aaton, I remember when they had their complicated history with Panavision but never knew the XTR Prod came out of their partnership. I did a couple years of series work...

    What in the image is suggesting to you that it was shot on something other than 16mm? I took a look at a season 5 episode and it looked just like what I would have expected.

    I would say with as...

    Haha! wouldn't THAT be fun. Just thinking about going back to tape-to-tape at this point would be insane. There were good lessons to be learned from it (making more thoughtful choices etc). To this...

    I did Steadicam for the '94 World Cup in Boston, including the Argentina/Greece game with Maradona (the legendary shot of him running straight towards the camera like a wild man was from that game,...

    I know a few Steadicam operators who prefer those barefoot type shoes, I always thought it a little counterintuitive myself because of the added load on the body requiring more support/cushioning...

    Five years ago I bought a couple of DSR-1800's for this purpose on eBay for less than $200 each with the optional SDI boards installed (which were still available as new parts, for $1300 each!)....

    It takes me back even further, to the BVE3000 I used in the late 80's (which was already dated by then).

    My go-to for past few years has been the Glimmerglass, which I generally go with 1/2 or 1. My current show I'm enjoying the look of the the Black Diffusion FX 1, which is doing a nice job of...
