Interview with Mark Linfield BBC NHU

There's a lengthy interview with Mark Linfield (BBC NHU Planet Earth producer) on reelshow dated 1/11/2008
He talks about film vs hd etc. for wildlife.
In summary; they like the new P2 Varicam 2700 because of 10 bit recording (gives better image in high-lattitude situations), getting to grips with the ups and downs of solid state workflows - they go to mirrored RAID drive in field then LTO tape at base.
RED etc., at 4k loses lots of res after de-bayering so would probably equal 1080 2/3" camera at best, and you'd have 35mm sensor so lenses would be about 2.5x lesss magnification so not so good for wildlife - same problem with 35mm cinecamera use.

Steve, it won't play in my browser, just a black window! Maybe this is due to limitation playing this outside GB?
Anybody else have the same problem?

Maybe, or not sure if you have to sign up? I have had issues with it in the past. Very interesting for wildlife shooters anyway. You don't get any audio either? You don't really need a picture as it's just Mark talking.

Steve, are you sure that the link is right? The link says:
Code:
http://www.reel-show.tv/
There is no sound/audio or picture in the browser, just a black window. Viewing the code tells me that this is a flash movie.

Hi again, there seem to be something wrong at the PC at my end. I was able to view the programme on my trusty Mac Pro :-)

Interesting to watch his thought about the future of wildlife filming.

Yes, sorry Per Johan, there wasn't any specific link to the interview, as you say you need to search.
