    The link in my first post is the one that Manfrotto customer service gave me, it is not the webpage I started on.

    I bought and sold a lot of used electronics (P&S cameras, Pocket PCs, iPods, and iPhones) on eBay in the early to mid 2000s, and items with the original box definitely sold for more than items...

    I was on the Service & Repair page, which doesn't really have a working search engine.
    The Manfrotto Spares website has a functional search engine.
  4. Solved: Help me source Manfrotto tripod parts

    Edit: I started a chat with Manfrotto, and they gave me a link to the leg clamp lever part: https://www.manfrottospares.com/r545-02-lever/

    Original post: My employer has a Manfrotto 546B tripod...

    You might have seen this already, here's the skin tone shot from the D7000 in the Zacuto 2011 Great Camera Shootout. Nikon's can produce a great image when they're exposed correctly.

    For indoor shots, under controlled light, don't use the Neutral profile, use the Standard profile with the contrast dialed down a little. To do this on my D7000, I select menu / Shooting Menu / Set...

    Select the "Standard" profile and turn down it's contrast, this will get you pretty close to Rec.709.

    The only time it would make sense to shoot in a flat profile indoors, would be if there was a...

    Could you post a sample of your shot that didn't turn out? That will help us identify what you need to do differently to get a clean key.

    It would also help if you briefly outlined the following: ...

    I think the 24-105mm f/4 lenses are as close as we've got to "one lens to rule them all." They have a constant aperture and have less distortion than the super zooms.

    I came close to getting a...

    You might not even need to turn the contrast all the way down, run some tests and see what looks good to you. For indoor interviews, under controlled lighting, I think it's good to shoot close to the...

    How does it look when you open it up in VLC? This might be the QuickTime gamma shift issue.
  13. Imitation S-Cinetone for A6xxx series cameras

    I just ran across this video on how to set imitation S-Cinetone in your A6xxx series camera. I haven't had a chance to shoot anything with it yet, but it should be fun to test out.

    The creator...

    It's good to know about new scam tactics, as I'm sure most of us also sell things other than video gear on services like Craig's List. People have been scammed here before too, no place is safe, and...

    Not to mention ads targeted to your age demographic 365 days a year. I lied about my birthday to FaceBook, just to throw off datamining.

    I started video with a Handycam on a Slik U-9000 tripod, what a piece of garbage, it was short, and the center column crank broke on the first use. I then upgraded to a Davis & Sanford FM18 head and...

    I agree with the sentiment, but it doesn't apply in all cases. I could say everyone should spend $20K on a set of sticks and a head, buy once cry once. The problem is that people don't necessarily...

    E-Image has lousy inspectors and quality control issues, at least on their more budget product range. Last year I bought an E-Image EG05A2 set of sticks with a GH05 head, the sticks were fine, but I...

    It can be used to gauge if blue/green screen is lit evenly, but that's about the only use I can think of.

    My current Lilliput 664/O/P has false color, but the scale is only on screen for a fraction of a second, and it doesn't display corresponding IRE levels, so I just use zebras.

  21. Do waveforms in budget field monitors accommodate video levels and full range levels

    I've noticed that budget field monitors are starting to include waveform, scopes, and false color, but the descriptions and specs don't make it clear whether the waveform can be set to correctly...

    When using a DSLM on tripod shots, I mount my audio recorder onto the pan arm using a rubber electrical clamp and QR plate, which helps keep the center of gravity low.

    I made the switch to Arca-Swiss style QR plates a few years ago, but I bought everything off eBay. I got a 40mm Sunwayfoto lever clamp and Haoge QR plate with an adjustable lip. Due the the weird...

    I haven't tried matching my Nikon D7000 to my Sony A6300, but if the interview took place indoors under controlled lighting, I'd set both cameras as close to Rec.709 as I could get them, gamma to...
