Good call Brent.

I originally created that tutorial for the DVD so I will go back and do close-ups of the FCP screens for the smaller internet version.

Old Fart : New Tricks

For that reason (wanting everything bigger) I just saved and opened them in the QT Player, viewed at 2x. I learned some stuff! That's always good =D

..and as soon as my lazy clients pay me, I'll be ordering this as well. I have 5 interns at the moment, with a sixth on the horizon ;=)

Wow Tim. Just got the DVD. Looked over the main menu and got sucked in to the depth of field section instantly. Can I say this on here - Holy $&*%# you did a great job visually explaining all the angles on this subject. I'd go through more sections now but I need to be wide awake for this..

Thanks for all the work you put into this DVD. Tremendous value.

Tim,

The DVD arrived today -- thanks so much! (Now just waiting for my 1-year-old to take a nap long enough for me to watch this and take it all in...)

I couldn't resist loading it up for a second, though, and it looks fantastic.

Thanks again,
Brent

Wow. That was shipped April 24th from Canada so that isn't bad at all. One week for halfway around the world!

Tim, that's not fair-mine was shipped the 23rd and it's still not here. And I'm in New York City. What's up with that?

I can't speak for the USPS. The odd thing is that some customers in California received theirs in under 3 days. It's probably luck of the draw with USPS nowadays.
It is supposed to be 4-7 business days. That means your shipment should arrive today or Monday. We say "allow up to two weeks" just incase.

I got my DVD the day before yesterday.

VERY IMPRESSED.

It was well worth the money, and will take me some time to go through it all. Thank you so much for being so thorough, detailed, descriptive, and for making it all available to us.

DVD previews look good, Tim. Looking forward to getting mine soon.

Question for you: does the DVD discuss use of your wonderful scene files? I'm expecting my order to go thru this week for my new 200 and I don't have a LOT of time to make some serious decisions about how to shoot: native or ultrawide. I do have time to do grading in post, just not sure what the absolute best work flow is.

I discuss and demonstrate the effects of each and every control found in the CAMERA PROCESS menu.
The printable pdfs with all of my scene files are also on the DVD-ROM portion of the DVD. I added them in case anyone wanted to laminate and keep them with their camera rig.

I'm quite confident in the HD200 wide latitude scene file being the best way to go for colour correction in post. I use it all the time. I made some matrix adjustments in there that I had not done on the original HD100 versions, and the extra bit of black stretch gives you room to underexpose an additional 1/3 stop or so and still retain some shadow details.

Ultimately though it is really best for you to use my scene files as a starting point and then make adjustments that suite your lighting style. I try to light within a 5 stop range and adjust the contrast in post, which is very limiting in some locations or natural light conditions. Some people aren't comfortable working that way and prefer a WYSIWYG approach.

Dear Tim,
I can't wait for the PAL version so I placed my order today. I presume that I will be able to see it on my computer or on the multiregion dvd player that I have.
Let's see, how lucky am I ? How many days for shipping to Romania?!
Thanks again,
Eugen
