For some reason I don't want to use my more expensive real lavaliere so I made a cheaper version lavaliere microphone from a telephone headset. See video at minute 2:35. It work fine on my GH3 but it doesn't work as intended on my zoom H1. Both devices need a 3,5 mm min jack plug. Anybody a clue why it doesn't work?
I'm testing the most optimum storage handling method for extended shoots. Being on the road with minimum back up means. Here's what I found so far - and what questions are left. Would help if you gave your thoughts on this ...
- Macbook pro SSD 1TB
- 2 x LaCie rugged mini 1 TB
- Edit on Macbook
- Store project file on Macbook drive under Films - Final Cut Projects
- Shoot more compressed AVCHD files
- Store full copy of SD card in xtra folder in the dedicated Event folder in Final Cut Events
- Run one Time machine back up copy on LaCie 1 disk
- Make copies of the Time machine back up on LaCie 2 disk
My idea is to store and edit until my notebook will be full. As soon as my notebook is full, I will empty the Original Media folder to safe space. I will restore the data from the back up disk to the Original Media folder when needed as soon as I'm in the situation to do. Tested this method and it works. Of course an accurate administration system will help.
The other method will be to import the data again from the copy of the SD card. I didn't test this method yet but I figure it will be time consuming as I somehow think the reconnecting has to be done file by file.
My questions are:
1. Can I run an automatic back up via Time Machine on back up disk 2 too or will this confuse the system?
Therefore better refrain to making manual copies whenever there has been changes.
2. I guess the data on the backup disk will be compressed. Won't this harm the quality of my footage?
3. What reconnecting methods are best? Via Time machine or reconnecting via SD card?
4. General thoughts on my storage handling as described above are welcome!
I bought a Zoom H1 and Rode Lavalier for recording interviews.
Next week I will use them at a shoot so I'm bizzy testing and getting the right settings.
What are the Optimal settings recording audio and why?
The options on the Zoom H1 are Wav or MP3 - I choose WAV. Should I use 48 Khz and 24 bit or ....?
So what Khz and Bit rate should I use? The options are...
- 48 Khz 16 bit
- 48 khz 24 bit
- 96 Khz 16 bit
- 96 Khz 24 bit
- 44 Khz 16 bit
- 44 Khz 24 bit
Thanxs for helping!
I wanted to try to learn to shoot with anamorphic lenses.
I have AndrewÂ´s guide, but iÂ´m not sure what to do in post with the footage?
I got a Sankor 16F attached with a clamp to a Canon 50mm 1.4 FD on a GH2.
Do i need to do anything on the camera before i start shooting? I use Final Cut Pro X in post, but im not sure how to handle the anamorphic footage?
Can any of you experts out there point me in the right direction?
