    Ty Harper reacted to webrunner5 in PC hard drive shipments could fall by 50% this year...   
    Well with 8K coming, and 6K likely to be a consumer standard soon that will be an even bigger burden on Cloud Services. I don't trust squat away from my own self unless I have it backed up. And if I do that why bother even with the cloud. Sure the Cloud can save you from having 2 backups at different locations, but for what you pay it almost to me for big projects not worth it.
    There is just way too much hacking going on as of late to trust any one with all your data, that in the long run is nothing short of suicide.

    Looks like the consumer shift to streaming is having a major impact on the hard drive market (one major component supplier is already positioning itself away from the market) which will very likely in turn impact the price of hard drives in a negative way.
    Personally, there's no way I'm putting my trust in a cloud service, so I guess I'll just have to be more thoughtful about my storage strategies and take whatever price increases might be coming down the pipe.

    Ty Harper reacted to BTM_Pix in Wireless storage access   
    The drive itself is USB3 when connected to your PC but the port for external card reader devices like the one shown there is USB2.
    For my application using it in LumaFusion that bothers me less because the determining overall speed factor is the wireless transfer which is slower than USB2 anyway.

    I have the older model (ND2901)... and while I haven't used it in a bit, it worked pretty well when I did... this new one looks like it'll be a great upgrade.

    Ty Harper reacted to Kisaha in New low budget "pro" wireless: Deity Connect   
    If you are happy with the G3s, then try to find a cheap used one. They usually don't break easily. I know people still using their G2s and they are happy with them.
    Rodelink can be found for dead cheap also and can be a good solution (same Deity technology) if do not mind the size (they are huge!).
    Personally, the absolute minimum for me are the Sony UWP series, they are hybrid and have true diversity, a characterestic found in more expensive systems.
    The Deity Wireless will be a good solution, we are waiting for the first real reviews and comparisons. They can easily become your first setup.
    There are always the Rode Go and the new Sennheiser systems, but they are too consumerish for my taste.
    Wait for the new Deity (they will sell loads of those!) and see, or else check the first option (cheap used G3).

    Ty Harper reacted to kye in Sharp's new 8K M43 camera   
    I know..  think about how all the forums are full of angry people demanding 8K cameras!
    Once you understand that this progression is mainly driven by the tech companies constantly trying to find ways to make you keep buying things, then the rationale becomes clearer

    Co-sign on Sirui! I remember 3 years ago selling my Manfrotto video monopod and buying the Sirui brand new the next day with money to spare, and it's never let me down + had way more features than the Manfrotto.

    Ty Harper reacted to BTM_Pix in FujiFilm X-T3 - Thoughts After One Month   
    So, let me get this straight...
    A forum member (who contributes a lot to this place by the way) makes a cautionary post about having two separate failures of a camera model that many people on here may be looking to buy and the response is to criticise his work ?
    Are you trying to suggest he broke these cameras by virtue of taking photographs that you don't particularly like ?
    Have I got that right?
    That both of these cameras self destructed on the grounds of taste?
    Because if you are not suggesting that then you need to accept that your contribution to this particular thread is as irrelevant as it is mean spirited.

    Hey Everyone, 
    Here’s a bunch of stuff I’ve shot, graded and edited for music videos between 2012-2018. 
    The shots in the reel not done by me are the drone shots. 
     
    For you camera nerds, I used......
    Sony FS700, FS5, FS7, F55, A7SII, A6500.
    Panasonic GH3, GH5. 
    DJI X3, X5R.

    Ty Harper reacted to Asmundma in NAB 2018 sneak peak: Zoom F8n   
    Hi, I have extensive experience with RME and had the rme 400 , now UFX II. The drivers in RME is rock solid and you can record with low latencey (the is now way the Zoom will be that stable). If you record music, the RME is the way to go as it much better for that purpose (DsP with EQ, compressor, auto level of recording, high impedance input for guitar, etc.) , recording video sound the F8n will do well. Sound Devices will benefit from analog limiter, slightly less noise.

    Ty Harper reacted to IronFilm in NAB 2018 sneak peak: Zoom F8n   
    Depends a lot on the person buying it, for me who is using it every day and for paid work, then the extra cost of its life span per use is nothing at all. 

    But if a person is using it much less often, then it could be smarter to get the cheaper F4
  23. Thanks
    Ty Harper reacted to IronFilm in NAB 2018 sneak peak: Zoom F8n   
    I have no personal experience with that RME product, but a five second google leaves me with the gut feeling that the F series would be better (or bare minimum not worse). 

    Take that with the big gain of salt it deserves. 
     
    Oh nice, that is a fine old recorder to have. Popular over on taperssection. 
    (not one I'd ever use on a film set though as a soundie! As ergonomics is horrible, plus other problems)

    Do you already have more than two wireless? 
    If in no rush, then I guess Deity should bring out a new wireless kit this year.

    Nice, hope it works out! I'm looking for a bi-color option tho, and now that I think about it, I really don't want to have to be mixing LED brands.

    Ty Harper reacted to salim in Thoughts on the Litepanels Brick One?   
    I would pick something with a bit more light control ability. Like a spot LED with barn door that I can control or have ability to soften it with shooting it through a reflector or something else. 
     
    My  needs are different I need something to travel with and setup different lights. I just ordered one of these to test. Should be here on Friday and I can play with it a bit. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1305546-REG/genaray_cd_contender_daylight.html
