    Made in China follow focus gear has an awful odor.

    Hi folks I just purchased three Fotga follow focus gear belts from China to go with my Fotga follow focus unit (which is surprisingly very good for the cost). The gear belts have a really strong odor to them, is this a health risk? Is there something I can do to deal with the odor without...

    Workout/Exercise Corporate Video

    Hi everyone, I have been asked to shoot a workout/exercise video that will be part of a corporate orientation package. This is outside of my music video/short work - where the film look is the goal. I was going for something sharper and clearer - maybe 30p or 60i (I plan on using either my...

    Atomos Ninja 2 or something (more affordable) like it

    Hi everybody, So I am going to try to get more bang for my buck by grabbing some uncompressed footage from my G10 via HDMI out (oh and can I do the HDMI out thingy and record the compressed footage via the normal card route at the same time? Why? Just curious, is all). The Atomos Ninja 2 is the...

    HELP! I messed up during whitebalancing. Can I save my footage?

    So I was working on a mini doc that touches on a charity event. It was a bright and sunny day so I opted to go the Kelvin route to whitebalance instead of custom (I know, I know - I was rushed, OK, I can give you the backstory later). It was a very bright cloudless day so I just dialed in the...

    Editing and Color Correction machine - buy or build?

    Hi, folks. My HP p6320y has done it's job but the time has come to step things up and get a proper post production machine. Now I am in no way interested, whatsoever, to spark a Mac vs. PC debate. However, I am also not ruling out Macs but must say I have a considerable investment in PC based...

    Compatible consumer/prosumer camcorder to use with DSLR

    Hi folks. I use a 60D as my primary camera and I love it. The thing of it though is that I am a beginner and have not yet perfected my workflow so I find that I waste time setting up shots and what not. Now I don't mind doing that as I close in and need more detail for medium and closer shots...
