  1. This is a very nice thread! The key is in the intentions. Of course this is about voyeurism, to look what people do normally, not in a staged situation with actors! There is nothing wrong about it! About the people not living the experience, but shooting it I don't understand them!!! I live in Rome and I see people who didn't watched directly anything. They watched it in their iPads, smartphones, camcorders viewfinders... It's pretty sad. I wonder if in their memories they include metadata like: "The first time I saw the Pantheon I just 20% of battery left and my SD nearly full" "When I arrived at the Coloseum, I made sure the UV filter was tight, format the SD and started shooting".
  2. If you want to record long interviews (more than half an hour), you'd better get a camcorder. At least for the general shot. Any actual camcorder will do. The other cam can be an DSLR or mirrorless. The Sony ones for example should record 29 minutes straight, instead of the 12 minutes of Canon. But don't trust me: check before buying!
  3. The video is very In the Mood for Slow Mo!!! It's very nice! Keep your feedback edgy, we are talking about a camcorder that costs like a cheap car!!!
  4. ​Maybe it's me, but I really can't understand to buy a 30K$ camera to record at 50Mbit/s........
  5. In the mean time you could really improve your skills by using a simulator in your computer several hours a day!
  6. If you really want to have a little drone, get a DJI phantom. Even a used one. Those cheap drones you are proposing will probably never give you any satisfaction (vibrations). And you will be flying them over your clients...
  7. I have one of this: http://wildiron.com/products/the-steadywheel It works great with small cameras with OIS. I have an LX100 and it works.
  8. http://***URL removed***/articles/0224203550/3-200mp-lsst-camera-gets-construction-approval I know what you are thinking: which Iscorama to use on it?? Does it goes on 15mm rails?? ;-DD
  9. ​Probably IVK, we still don't know if MMMDCCCXL by MMCLX or MMMMXCVI by MMCLX!
  10. My second name has an accent and it looks weird. I have seen other names with accents and they look weird too!!!
  11. It can be easily done. Put your audio on the "storyline" track and the clips over it!!!
  12. I personally think color correction is getting overblown. There is too much correction, it's easy to see masks all over any actor face several times during a movie. Like too much audio compression on CDs, it will peak and I hope people will complain.
  13. The FCP X timeline needs a bit of mental readjusting, but once you learn it, you don't want to come back!!!
  14. ​ FCP X does that for you automagically!!!
  15. I got the LX100 yesterday and there are a couple of things I don't understand. I change Iso, aperture or shutter and I don't see any change on the rear LCD. When I press record, the settings took effect and the look mostly change. Is there a way I can see changes on the LCD?? Also I set Iso to Auto, and when I press record, the Iso is fixed. Is like when recording video settings change. Clearly I looked at the manual, but they didn't explain what I need! Thanks!
  16. In fact, that's another problem. 24/25p watched on a (probably!) 60Hz monitor. In any case when you go to a movie theater and there is a pan, image "judders". And there is noise. Sometimes even in daytime scenes. Nobody cares, if the story is good!
  17. ​Patrick you are not reading the answers. There is no fault or problem. Recording 24p/25p there is "judder" when things or the camera moves. Have you ever watched a motion picture in theater??
  18. On your window video it didn't change, on the second video exposure changes in every single clip! Even stranger, it seems to increase exposure when recording a brighter scene!!!
  19. I didn't read all the answers, but if you are working in a church, placement is 99% of success. A little recorder, like a Zoom H1, can make "miracles"... ;-DD
  20. ​If you can't blame your tools, 90% of this industry stops!!!! ;-DDD I read people on forums talking about denoising all the time and every single time I go to a movie theater I see glorious noise all over the place. Even in daylight scenes. And I don't care, I'm watching a film!!!
  21. ​If you need to take pictures and/or love to work handheld, a native AF lens with OS is a must.
