Dv Ny

Probably most people in the NY area already know this, but thought I'd post it just in case... I received this message in my mailbox:

Wired.com: "Crooked Path Ahead for Digital TV"

An interesting article reflecting on the prospective effects of the upcoming Republican-controlled Congress. Bottom line: no need to rush to Best Buy any time soon.

WeibeTech FW drive

Is it possible to contect the super desktop gb directly to the GL2 and film? In another words, capture directly to the FW drive and not use the minidv tape.

Panasonic AJ-SDX900

Pro shoulder mount, 24p, records DV25 and DV50, dirt cheap at the bargain-basement lowball introductory price of only $35,000:

See http://www.panasonic.com/PBDS/subcat...AJ-SDX900.html

From Jan Crittenden:

It will be 24P, 30P, and 60i, 16:9/4:3 switchable, dual resolution in 50Mbs and 25Mbs. We have a little bit of information about it on our web page, www.panasonic.com/broadcast look for the
camcorders and click on the link. It will have 12 bit DSP allowing for a matrix that is unrivaled by any standard def camera. It will also have more adjustability to the gamma, with a preset for Cine Gamma, but still have some handles. There is a wireless receiver pocket and a lot of small but thoughtful features. I am the product manager for this camera and this is the nicest SD camera we will have brought to the market ever... we will start to show the camera in January and deliver in March of next
year. Wish it was sooner.

And probably without lens. I was excited when I read about this camera.
I went to the site and saw the price (which I thought would be no more than the DSR570WS).

I am sure it is wonderful, but for that kind of money, I want HD (with lens).

Oh, by the way . . . another panasonic rant ;)

I ordered the varicam DVD demo. Hey, even if the varicam is out of my personal price range, you never know if the U. of M. will eventually buy HD.

To make a long story short . . . the DVD won't play. I am SURE panasonic has its own lovely DVD spec (what is it again . . . DVD-RW?).

Well, just like ALL the reasons I heard about why Panny's firewire was NOT delivered on time, and then why Panny firewire wouldn't play with ANYTHING, I am positive there are_plently of excuses_.

Bottom line, I want to put their DVD into my player (new magnavox) and have it work. So far, this is THE ONLY DVD this new player has "no disc"ed.
I won't be taking chances on Panny DVD burners.

Sorry Panasonic, BUT when are you going to WAKE UP!

No. Shooting to disk (as with the Firestore or other similar units) requires more than just a Firewire disk. There is additional programming and circuitry involved.

Nikon Fans might be interested to know . . .

This link about Nikon's finanical outlook http://www.siliconvalley.com/mld/sil...ey/4493506.htmmight be interesting to a few of you. Nikon had long been rumored to be for sale. But with their stock so low (7 year low) no sales are imenent.

I know the price sounds high, but it isline with other cameras like the JVC D9 cineline d90w, which lists for 25k without lens and doens't offer progressive output. Would like to see a JVC alternative though.

Magic Bullet used on feature film 'Jackass'

Came across this article http://www.theorphanage.com/webconte...ass_10-02_web/ about The Orphanage using MB on this MTV feature film. It was mostly shot on NTSC Digi Beta (some S16). MB was used to conform the video to 24p and reduce video artifacts.

Interesting. Too bad Magic Bullet couldn't remove the artifacts of inane, insipid imbecility from this feature. <g>

Ah, I think your referring to their new plug in MI (Magic Intelligence). When I saw who produced it, MTV, I had a clue what it was.
