Are you sure about this? I am looking through my copy of DV, and can't find anything like that. I do know that you can get a "Free" subscription to VIDEOGRAPHY magazine, by filling out the card.

Basically, they review your card info to see if you are "professional" level - that is, are you likely to spend enough money on equipment each year to warrant giving you a free subscription? Then they sell your info to their commercial clients. (Watch your mailbox for ad campaigns from digital equipment manufacturers.) I knew this going in, so no problems.

Even if you pay for a subscription to DV, it's not much money and well worth the expense. Hope this helps,

I am positive. Chances are someone took the "Free Subscritpion Application" out and used it.

Free? I like it. Hook me up, or direct me to the hookup. I will lie on this "card" you mention. Yes, I am Josh Bass, master of the digi-Beta world. Why just last week I used a 35mm prime lens as a doorstop, and AGDVX100 to prop up the wobbly leg of my kitchen table.

XL1S Used in AMERICAN CINEMATOGRAPHER

FYI

A picture of a cameraman documenting behind the scenes schtuff ("DREAMCATCHER"), it looks like, with the Canon XL1S or XL1. (Page 68, April 2003, With Nightshade (X2) on the cover).

Nourishment for the soul...

Cheers!

Does the article discuss or feature the XL1s? Is it just a picture of an XL1s?

BTW, please don't use "**" to set your headings off.

Ken,

Right on with the latter question. Nothing...

Its a picture of the XL1/XL1S... The 16x Lense Pocking out of the right hand edge of the photograph. Nothing said.

I've been hearing a lot about behind the scene documentaries using the XL1/XL1S.

Its a good reference magazine...

Cheers!

Derrick

What Magazines do you read and why do you think they are worth your time??

With Ken bringing up the latest issue of DV Magazine it got me to thinking about the assortment of magazines I infrequently buy at newsstands and probably should just subscribe to and get it over with... so I thought I'd ask here.

(( The reason I posted this in this Area and not the Open DV area was that my interest is mostly in filmmaking with DV ))

Currently I read:

FilmMaker which doesn't always have any viable DV related stories but it's a good Indy Film magazine.

American Cinematographer I don't care if you are shooting with a Super 8 film camera, a 1987 K-Mart special VHS videocamera or the latest million dollar DV set-up, you can ALWAYS learn something from each and ever issue.

DV Didn't subscribe just did on-line a little while ago.

Videography sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not... is it just me??



I buy an assortment of other film, video and screenwriting magazines based on their articles... and I"m sure I'm forgetting some too.

Which ones do you think are worth the effort and time to subscribe to?

The only two I subscribe to are Computer Arts and Computer Arts Specials. The first is a pretty good general read, but leans heavily towards Photoshop (good) and 3D (bad...IMO!) CAS covers one subject in great depth. Although the subject changes from issue to issue, it leans a lot towards 3D and Flash...both of which are of such low interest to me that I really should hang up my subscription. Both CA and CAS occasionally cover DV, but it's rare and usually insubstantial.

The same publisher used to publish DV World, which I was about to subscribeto when it was cancelled after 8 or 9 issues... :-(

Perhaps I should have a look at DV.

Video magazines

I was at my local paper pusher recently and they had a new magazine - Digital Video. This is an import (for me at least) from the UK.

After looking through it I have to wonder why the U.S. can't seem to have a magazine like this. It's not just this field either, I've seen a similar disparity of quality of content in outdoor photography and birdwatching magazines.

It's not that Digital Video is more advanced. The first issue covers a lot of the basics that you might expect to see covered in Videomaker, for example. It's just that the coverage seems to be much more in depth than you see in U.S. mags. The reviews seem to be more thorough as well. On top of all of that, it came with a DVD-ROM (PC and Mac) that showed examples of what they were talking about in their 'how to' section and clips from each of the camcorders they were testing. I've seen books with less information.

Has anyone else seen this magazine? Is the disparity in content quality between U.S. and U.K. magazines all in my imagination?

I pick up Videography from time to time if there are a few good articles. Same with American Photography (I think thas the name).
FWIW, I find I learn more from some of the photo magazines than the video production 'zines.

Although I haven't checked out any UK video or media magazines
I do have read several (and still do) magazines from the UK
for my profession -> programming/computers. Those mags are
far superior then anything that is written in my native language
here in Holland.

So perhaps they do put more in them generally?

Last year I had a subscription to Scr(i)pt which
I liked pretty much. Had some good solid advice on scriptwriting
and writers talked about how they came up with ideas, transformed
them into (spec) scripts and finally how some of those turned into
(well known sometimes) movies. It is primarely targeted for
writers that want to write for Hollywood. So no indie work, but
still interesting (in my opinion).
