    • New Canon 1DX Mkii Footage
      Does anyone have any idea how they are viewing the image on an external monitor as well as using the rear touchscreen LCD at the same time?   
    • Mac OSX/ Editing Software - Poll
      I actually learned Avid MC first, and cut in it for years so these notes about the keyboard etc don't really apply so much. I used to have edit-off's with a buddy after work to see who was faster: me (keyboard shortcuts) or him (mouse guy). Once I switched over to FCP, however, I found that because there were multiple ways of entering various functions and modes I could edit much more intuitively. Yes, I still use keyboard shortcuts as much as possible, but cropping a shot in the timeline, for instance, is way easier using the mouse than typing in numbers. For me, the "methodical" nature of how Avid MC forces you to think and edit is antithetical to creativity. I prefer to iterate through as many ideas as possible on the timeline, as quickly as possible. That way I'm not just basing edits on what I "think" will work, then jumping through so many hoops if my "plan" doesn't work, but instead each edit is determined to work based on the evidence in the timeline itself, and the many the previous iterations of said idea. That is my working style. Media Composer, for instance is very particular about how you enter segment mode, or trim mode, and back. Assigning tracks is a pain and the interface isn't very flexible. In FCP (and to a lesser extent Premiere) you are able to manipulate things directly in the timeline, use 3-point editing techniques, assign tracks, etc. without regard to the order in which you do them. There are always multiple ways to skin the cat. That is my preference in an NLE.
    • Trying to choose for a16mm camera proress/raw
      Hi, I am trying to decide which setup is the best to shoot a fimographic documentary. I need to be relatively small, lightweight and shoot handheld. I also want to shoot in a good codec (prores) but have the possibility to shoot some raw videos. I am a photographer and I just shoot (99% of the time) with a 35 mm lens (full frame). I mainly use a Leica M9. however I now also begin to be more involved in video. My second camera is an A7RII and I use it extensively for improving my video skills.... I color grade with color finale and davinci resolve it depends. I will have to shoot a documentary in 3 months but in more filmic way (I will not color grade but a professional will do it) so I need to shoot in prores in HD no need for 4K. I will shoot with one lens a 35 mm equivalent because it is the way I am use to frame in photography.  I will not be able to light properly each shot just 50% of the time... My A7RII would be perfect : internal stab is enough for me, I use It in s 35 mode with a 24mm Leica R which gives me a 35mm equivalent, it is small and lightweight. The problem is the 8bit Xavc. With an atomos it will be bigger and the camera output 8 bit so not a good idea. I was thinking using a bmpcc with a 12 mm (slr magic or Olympus) and a kind of small portable rig but I am not sure of the handheld shooting. I know there is also the new bmmicro cinema camera with the video assist I could also use with a small rig. Or a bmcinema camera with a small rig... the urea mini is gonna be too big. I also think of using an OIS lenses for stabilization (12-35 panda for example) does everybody as an experience with a small handheld kit that works for documentary shooting?
    • One Lens?
      @The Chris it happens bro. Modern lenses can be so contrasty you can lose an entire stop in DR. Happens with the zeiss glass I own now. I HAVE to throw on a diffusion filter to compensate for that. Lower contrast lenses are better for 8bit and I assume modern contrasty lenses were built with raw and 10bit log in mind
