Re: Nikon Mirrorless Z6 and Z7 announced. 10BIT HDMI OUT!

I'm looking forward to getting a Z6 if finances allow that in a couple months. It ticks all the right boxes for me.

The Video AF I've seen is just as good as Canon's DPAF and this will be mostly...

Re: Vimeo alternatives

I've never noticed any playback issues on Vimeo - but right now I'm more concerned about the complete account take downs that have been going on for music violations etc with no warning.

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!

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: 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?

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.
