dv lighting + power

I was wondering what everybody was using as
a lighting kit for their DV shooting.... I hear a lot
of things like tungsten, lowell... But I need some
help to grasp it all... What are good kits to get?
Any articles or books i might want to check out
on this topic? How can I use my lights while i'm
on location where there isn't any power available?

Thanks for any help!

Best Wide Angle Adaptor for XL1s?

I read somewhere that there are wide angle adaptors that you can zoom through and would be considered better than a wide angle lens?

I'm new to the XL1s and don't have either but I need a wide angle solution.

Can anyone give me their opinion/feedback? Thank you.

You have a European camera model. Tell the computer the US equivalent (Optura, Elura, etc.). Contact your dealer or the nearest Canon office to find what the US equivalent model is. Make sure your editing system supports PAL, because that's the system in which your camera records and plays back. Hope this helps,

NLE Buyers Guide website improved

For anyone interested in nonlinear video editing, we have just launched a redesigned website for the NLE Buyers Guide at http://NLEguide.com, which, thanks to user feedback, is simpler and faster to use.

New features include an enhanced Search page with a 'System Name' field that allows you to select from more than 200 NLE products. Additional Browse features have been added, and the whole site has been re-designed to be much quicker to load.

Background
The NLE Buyers Guide covers all types of NLE product, including turnkey systems, hardware platforms and software packages, and covers prosumer/professional video editing applications from DV editing and content creation for DVD/Web, to high-end finishing for HDTV/film. The Guide also covers disk recorders and servers designed to work with editing applications.

You can search our database by application, system type, host platform, video input/output, cost range as well as manufacturer and system name.

With kind regards
-Yasmin Hashmi

JVC HRDVS2-U - Any Problems?

Any problems using theJVC HRDVS2-U deck for playback and capture to save wear and tear on my XL-1 ?

What about software settings and such.

Am using DVRaptor, RAPTORVIDEO (v 2.01) for capture and ADOBE PREMIERE v5.1C for editing.

Once the season is over, I will upgrade both DVRaptor to 2.11 and Premiere to 6.1 (or is it 6.01 ?).

Howdy from Texas,

ProMax is without a doubt the *top* dealer of Mac editing systems in the world -- and they are one of my sponsors. Yes, by all means, you can trust them!

Ask them for a PowerBook laptop Mac with Final Cut Pro 3, now that would be an impressive portable system. Hope this helps,

EBU, PAL color bars

Hi everyone!

I'm going to pick up my XL1s PAL this evening! (yummie)..
Hope all goes well. One question I have is how to calibrate
with PAL EBU color bars! I have seen many NTSC SMPTE
color bar calibration tutorials, but not one on these PAL
bars. Any help, pointers or URLs would be greatly
appreciated!

Thanks!

please advise-Lcd monitor for xl1s

Hi,

I want to buy a lcd monitor for my xl1s.

Will I be able to fit any 4" lcd monitor that sells on ebay by buying the necessary brackets separately or should I be looking at only a particular kind of lcd monitor.

Also for 200$ more , is it worth and necessary to buy a 7" 16:9 lcd monitor. (This particular model has both 4:3 & 16:9 modes). Will a 2lb monitor be too bulky ?

Kindly advise.

Thanks,
Raj.

Thanks Bill,

The forums have been great because they really just run themselves. I'm glad we've got such a dedicated group of high-quality folks who are participating. Hopefully this whole thing will grow significantly next year -- but I'm most pleased with the way things have gone so far! Holiday greetings from the Rottweiler,
