Re: Who here offers Photo, Video, or DJ packages

In 2017 I moved into offering wedding photography to compliment my wedding videography.

I do not do combos though, they are distinct packages.

My core team consists of folks I've been shooting...

Re: Tascam DR10CS/DR10L combo for ceremonies

Wanted to follow up on the DR10L. I used these on several weddings and other gigs over the course of 2017 and absolutely love them.

I still use 2 G3s that I route into my rear camera wide safety...

Re: X70 top handle replacement.

Thanks! I picked it up. Hopefully it works!

I was going to say, I don't really need it because my sennheiser shock mount fits on there, but having it just for completeness is nice, especially, if...

X70 top handle replacement.

Is it possible to just buy the XLR handle?

I picked up a used x70 w/ 4K upgrade installed today because it was a killer deal ($875) at the local shop, but it didn't have the handle attachment.

Re: 3 new Sony 4K palm camcorders

I have an XA20 and a CX900 right now.

I have to say I really prefer the control layout on the body of the Sony over the Canon.

So just based on that, I'll probably go with the new Sony's. For...

Re: Canon USA launches three 4K UHD handheld camcorders

Looks like the XA series to me....

I wonder how this will compare to the Sony AX100 and X70.

It's about time for Sony to update the AX100 isn't it?

Re: Former/Current Tape Users - archived footage question

When I started this, we had 3 of us involved in weddings and we all used MiniDV.

When we broke apart the business in 2008, one of the guys kept on filming and took all the tapes.

Re: DSLR and a Steadicam workflow

That would be interesting to see.

But I'm guessing it's just the regular Full time AF like they've always had.

If it were a new fangled video focus system like canons dpaf, I would have...

Re: DSLR and a Steadicam workflow

I use a Nikon D7200 with a Tokina 11-16 at 5.6 on a Glidecam HD2000.

Works most of the time. I set focus and then try to stay about whatever distance away, usually 6-8 feet I guess.

Re: Do My Wedding Packages Make Sense?

Yeah, we've had some people not pay, or have had trouble getting payment after the wedding.

Re: Do My Wedding Packages Make Sense?

On solo vs team shooting - there are a ton of benefits when shooting with a second and third shooter, if done properly.

I know every time I do a wedding solo, invariably, the final quality suffers...

Re: Selling Video Downloads

My preferred approach would be to have the "DVD fee" added to the actual dance recital cost and then every parent would get a DVD and an HD download.

I'm thinking something like $30.

So if the...
