Making a DVD??

I am a still photographer new to all this. I need to produce a dvd for a client. Low budget. I want to do it myself. I am going to edit in Final Cut Express. I will buy either the dvx 100 or 80. I am looking for, as much as possible, a "film look" with as few complications in capturing and editing as possible. I assume 24p is out. Is 30p the way to go (over 60i)? Does this work in FCE. Final product is dvd to be view on TV. Many thanks. Grant McClintock

The gamma is not changeable by any reasonable means. However, shooting cinema gamma allows the maximum flexibility to create altered gamma's in post. Search here for much more info on cinegamma.

The opposite - 24p is ideal for DVD. Read the Sonic Foundry whitepaper for info about this. I'm not sure in Final Cut Express support both pulldown methods, but the DVX100 is the way to go for filmlook.

How close are auto Iris settings?

Hey all. Just a quick question: since it's so hard to judge exposure on the LCD and I won't have a field monitor any time soon, is it good to use the Auto Iris as a guide to correct exposure (obviously excluding situations like shooting in front of a window etc.) or is there a rule that you should stop down slightly from the auto? Thanks guys.

Hi Bryan,

In the Scene Files you can adjust the amount of opening or closing of the iris according to your wishes.

You are not the only one mentioning that it's hard to use the LCD screen. However, I do all the exposuring on the screen and it never fails me. Make sure you check the exposuring with the LCD in the right angle, as it shows a bit lighter when it's leavered a bit up or down.
After checking my iris settings with the LCD I freeze the auto exposure and twist a bit with the dial button to check if there is any special light condition. Putting on the zebra function helps to warn for over exposured areas in the screen.

I'm not sure if this a film school method, but it works for me.

Cheers,

Peter

stereo recording

I can't recommend a good stereo microphone, but I can offer you a suggestion: Try using two wireless lav mics w/cardioid pickup pattern, and connect each of the two receivers into an XLR jack on the camera. The main advantage is that no matter where you move your camera during the shoot, you'll have a consistent stereo soundfield. For example, horns recorded on the left channel will stay left even you decide to shoot from the side or any other angle. Just a thought. . . .

E stands for Europe, so it's a PAL version of the DVX100. Has the updated version been released in Europe? Perhaps contact B&H and ask them if the have the PAL version of the DVX100A, meaning not the DVX100.

I think that's an old article (although a good one) and it has been discussed here quite some time ago...

looking to get a second camera

Hi there,

I'm looking for another camera. So far I've nailed it down to the DVX100AE or the Canon Xl1s E. I currently have an XM2. The removable lens isn't an issue as much as trying to match up with the XM2 for videos. Primary use would be short films and music videos. Any ideas or thoughts on this would help

I had a GL2 and then moved up to the DVX100A. With some manipulation they could be made to match up I imagine, but you would have some difficulty. The DVX100 makes a much nicer picture, and just generally handles colors and detail in much different way than the Canon.

So if matching them up is of primary importance, go with another Canon, I'd say. But if you just want a really good camera, go for the DVX.
