    • Canon XC10 versus Sony RX10 III. The Canon is underrated!
      tugelas first post ever in EOSHD was canon bashing in 2014. Talk about salty dude. I've never actually seen him post anything he has shot? 
    • Which Quick Release Plate?
      There are plenty of dovetail quick-release systems that allow the camera to be removed "from the top" -- without having to slide the plate out of the clamp.  There are even small Manfrotto compatible plates that do so.   However, don't know about specifically Manfrotto 501 compatible systems.  There is nothing that would make impossible a 501 "top-release" clamp.   I use Arca-Swiss plates for everything, except for the heavier medium-sized cameras or larger.  Those clamps and plates are prolific and inexpensive.  Just keep an Arca-Swiss clamp on each camera plate and rig.          
    • Best focusing method when shooting with stabilizer
      The RMC Tokina 17mm hits infinity at about 15 feet. If he wants to nail his focus with a steadicam and a manual lens, I would use 20mm lens or less. He should hit infinity at 20' or less with a lot of ultra wide lenses. Or at least the ones, I've owned.  Sorry, read it quickly, I thought he was using a manual lens for some reason... Hot summer brain I guess. 
    • Panasonic G7 or GH4 as "A Cam"? (And other questions)
      Andy, could you comment on why you dont set sharpness and noise reduction to any negative value but left it at 0?
    • Help Needed....
      Remember that for the "HBO Special" look, you need at least 2 operators - one to track the comedian and one to get audience responses. You have to quickly ID people that are really cracking up and get a lot of variety of reactions. Just having a static camera on the audience isn't going to be that great. It's good to use a long lens for that and stay out of people's faces, dress in black and stay in the shadows. People can clam up if they feel they're being filmed. If you have a static camera that's wider getting the stage, shoot 4K and reframe to get a "3rd operator" look if possible.
