  1. I´m learning in the hard way! I should have used the "safety channel" mode where a channel is recorded 6 decibels lower than the other. We were not brocasting live. Just recording for post-editing. TC boxes from Denecke or TCS are difficult to find here in Spain. Is easy to find Atomos (ultrasync One/Blue) and Deity. Thank you very much
  2. Well, I agree with everything. At my last rock concert, we used 6 cameras, and only 2 shared the same time code. The sound mixer during rehearsals tested all three of my usb drives and none were recognized by the console (mackie), so no mp3 for me. At least I take my portable recorder (Marantz pmd 661) and adjust the level, since I couldn't keep an eye on it, I put it recording in auto gain mode. Big mistake, because at the start of the concert they turned up the volume and since they didn't have limiter it clipped for almost the entire track. I only had good sound from the rf feed that I took with the G2 and in post production, the synchronization was a nightmare because the clipping prevents the synchronization by wave.
  3. Hi everybody. In my work I normally use multicamera in interviews with 1 Sony and 2 JVC with time code over BNC cable. But I know that it is risky to have the cameras physically linked, because of the risk that someone crosses and throws a piece of equipment when tripping. Also in live events or on stages and performances this connection is unfeasible. So what would be the recommended price-quality version of wireless TC for 3 simultaneous cameras? Deity TC-1 Kit or 3 units of tentacle E? Then another question would be that I have found it really useful to have an RF line feed from the mixing desk of the pavilion or the concert directly to the main camera, where there is no press splitter for wiring. Currently I do it with a sennheiser G2 lavalier transmitter , but the different line and mic gains and the different amplifications make it complicated. So, is there a more profesional way to send Line RF feed, to the camera, for at least 30-40 meters away?? @BTM_Pix @IronFilm@Kisaha @Anaconda_
  4. Another year, I return with my traditional police Christmas video. This year a short film of a thief who climbs the walls dressed as Santa Claus, to camouflage himself as the popular Christmas decoration. Remember that it is a video that we make in which each roll is interpreted by policemen, not actors, and that the technical section this time is made up of some more members of the squad, where only 2 of us have audiovisual knowledge. I hope it makes you laugh at least a small part of what we have laughed shooting it. A greeting to all, and especially to Andrew.
  5. I shoot this with Hollyland Lark 150 dual wireless mics. For the money, I think is good enough.
  6. I was only joking here with the character behind that project, in the same way that he did. I apologize if I have offended you. I have never developed a camera. I don't even dedicate myself full time to filmmaking. Sorry
  7. I'm so sorry to read such bad news, Andrew. You have the full support of the filmmaker community.

    Panasonic GH6

    And don't forget those used "GH5S" now on the sub-1000 land
  9. I like the YT channel "This guy edits" https://youtube.com/c/ThisGuyEdits
  10. [Small correction] I'm getting old and my memory can't remember exactly: They were 2x12 min at 800 watts. I add a photo of one of my bags. They are very hot, you can barely touch them with your bare hands after a few minutes. It exhales a lot of water vapour, probably toxic because the smell is not like water at all. In a recent project, I put a temperature/humidity sensor with a cheap IOT module, so I can check real-time data over the internet from my smartphone all over the world and see graphs of my historical data. If someone is interested I can recover the project
  11. I have big silica bags (1kg) I'm my gear closet. I usually reused every 1 or 2 month following the manufacturer instructions: Microwave at 800watts during 15min, turn upside down and another 15min.
  12. This camera is not very popular here, but since firm. update v2, it has great new features: Add the AI-based Real-time Tracking AF, and if the Touch Function is set to Tracking AF, you can use Real-time Tracking to track the subject even during manual focus Add the Breathing Compensation for consistent angle of view when focusing Note: Lenses that support the Breathing Compensation feature Add the 16-bit RAW output via HDMI Add the bokeh adjustment mode for easy adjustment while minimizing exposure changes Add new features that support High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Standard Dynamic Range (SDR) dual production for SR Live SDR Emulated Preview Display on EVF SDR Gain Metadata Recording Add the Picture Cache Recording function, which is also supported when shooting with S&Q Motion Displayed the 4-channel audio level meter on the on-screen display Add the other useful features Note: Refer to the Help Guide for details on all updated functions. Previous Benefits and Improvements Adds the 100P and 120P options to the Slow & Quick Motion frame rate menu when the codec is set to RAW or RAW & XAVC-I Fixes an issue where the EI value is not reflected correctly during playback in Cine EI mode Improves the overall stability of the camera
  13. Does the new server have some effect to the search function? Because the search of "Fx6" found 0 results now. I know it's a camera you don't like very much Andrew, but hope not so much to ban it fron the new server. 😂

  15. The konica hexanon 40mm is really really sharp. I used to use it as an anamorphic taking lens but the "dracula's coffin" bokeh is very distracting. Wish it had more blades!
  16. I don't have gx9 to test, but its really easy and safe to test. You will know that you are in a stealth mode when the screen does not show the recording mode and you generate those corrupted movs.
  17. Hi, we have repaired it successfully long time ago, resulting no real increase of bitrate. So we abandoned the investigations.
  18. I Spanish language I really like the channel of Falco Films. Great content specially those of lighting from the DOP Rita Noriega.
  19. Thank you very much for the feedback dear friends. It is very stressful to make these types of videos when out of 15 people, only 2 really know what they are doing, and the rest are waiting and chatting. So I must dedicate to adjusting the lights, the camera, the set, explaining to an administrative staff how to turn on and start recording the mixpre. Unpack the sweets, distribute the sugar, help to dress the companions ... Two different locations in 6 hours in total. The total production budget was 0. In the end you can't be at all ... Luckily more and more people want to participate selflessly in our projects, so I think we can only improve for the next time. I leave some photos of the filming. P.S. At the end of the day, the administrative person told me that he did not know why the battery level went up to the red zone and to the green zone so fast. It was the audio level (vu meter) and he thought throughout the recording that it was the state of the battery. At that moment I wanted to die 🤣
  20. As usual in recent years I have been making a Christmas video for the police force where I work. This year with more sense of humor, parodying Breaking Bad. No professional, all who appear are police officers. GH5S + Sirui Anamorphic 35mm. Hope you like it.
  21. Don´t forget that years ago most cinema lights were fresnel
  22. More than 3 years has passed and I still usin slider app.
  23. It's a shame, because the camera is able to send and receive timecode continuously. This can be seen during the TC Link process (in and out) the TC operates continuously. Once it is paired, it starts working independently. It would be software fixable in an update if they had the will.
