    I'm lightly horrified at ramifications of this (as if we as DP's haven't already lost enough control when we are shut out of color, now our footage can get re-lit as well). But, at least I'm...

    KIND of...in that they are small and can be easily shaped. Dedos are much punchier though.

    Really? I always thought the Minis were surprisingly cheap. The high CRI LED ones are $400, they don't seem to sell the older halogen versions but I recall those being around $100 less (we just...

    I used a bunch of those last year for mounting puppeteer monitors for a forest walk and talk, the puppeteers thought they were great. One caveat is that the elasticity of the straps would be a bit of...

    All of these numbers are virtually arbitrary. If UHD was 4096 across and DCI was cropped from that and both versions were presented side by side, it's incredibly unlikely anyone would detect the...

    If there is some confusion between why we have 17:9 DCI and 16:9 UHD when they are so close: 17:9 matches the framing of traditional film projection of 1:85 aspect ratio, 16:9 is the broadcast...

    HDMI over CAT6 will extend the run longer than just HDMI, but still not as much as you need it to be. I think your cheapest version is to do the two runs of SDI with the equalizer between. Fiber is a...

    Josh, my rule of thumb with wireless systems is whatever they are rated at for distance, divide that by 5, especially when reliability is a factor (as it would be for streaming). My systems are rated...

    Definitely there was no "free ride" in the film days, in fact it was more challenging because you didn't really get to see it either in camera or via the video tap, you just had to instinctually know...

    As Mitch already knows, I'm one of those people. We talked about it recently because of the passing of director Richard Rush. It's a big weird jangly surreal film and it may be feeling its age in...
