    If you get a really sensitive mic, you might get away without using a preamp, and just booting your computer's input gain.

    For $29 you can get this XLR to TRS preamp and the USB audio adapter I...

    I use one of these USB audio adapters to integrate my Church's sound system with a laptop running Zoom.

    in addition to an earset mic, some kind of audio software or VST plug-in that has an equalizer would be useful in removing low frequency HVAC rumble. On the post processing side, iZotope RX Elements...

    Are these reflection issues still present after having the subject wipe down their skin with a cloth to remove body oil? I recognize that's not feasible or practical in all situations, I'm just...

    What kind of videos are you shooting? If you're shooting interviews, it might make more sense to get a G7/GH4/GH5 mirrorless camera and use your X1000 for audio and a backup camera angle. You can get...

    Most dual XLR input recorders are going to be about the same size as an H5. I mount my Tascam DR-100 onto my tripod's pan arm with a rubber electrical clamp and QR plate. I don't like to put a...

    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.

    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.

    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...

  20. 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.

    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...
