Bryan from barrie

I'm a refugee from DVcom like many others here. I'm older than dirt and an amateur. A serious amateur though. I've had a TRV20 for a year now and plan to step up to either a VX2000 or a PD150 this coming week. I'm still trying to justify the price difference. oh well it's only money.

I take my video (and most other things) seriusly. I have invested a fair bit into some decent lighting gear(lowell, photoflex and Arri fresnels) and a decent NLE system

Hi Bryan, welcome aboard.

From what I've seen of the two cameras, unless you are shooting for broadcast, I'd save the cash and go with the VX. With the money you save you can add a Beechtech or the like and a better mic.

For the extra cash I really don't think the PD is worth it for anything less than pro work when someone else is footing the bill.

Hi Beaser!! (No eesleazy here, I'm sure you know what I mean.) I'd take Adrian's suggestion. Go with a VX2000, and eventually add a Studio1 or BeachTec, along with perhaps a Sennheiser ME66/K6 mic/battery unit.

Don't forget a Tiffen Black Pro mist 3, that is if you can get one in Canada (back-ordered like 10 months up here).

Hello from the new guy

Hey everyone. I've been a frequent visitor to the board for about a year, and a twice-daily visitor for about the last two weeks. I thought it was about time to register.

I'm a DV filmmaker (feature-length, mainly) in Sarasota, FL.
I'm using an NTSC XL1 and will be building an Avid XPress DV system soon (currently using Premiere 6).

I don't have any DV features finished yet, but I'm currently in production on a feature-length mock-umentary called "Adventures in Pimpin'" (I'm producing & will be editing) and in Preproduction on an untitled dramatic feature that starts filming 1 November '03 (saving $$ in the meantime for more equipment).

Erm....I'm 23 and, because this suddenly sounds like an AA meeting....I'm not at alcoholic!

And that's all I can think to say right now.

-Shawn

Hi Shawn! Welcome aboard. Your story sounds a bit like my own
(only difference is that I've also posted in that time). I've been
going to this board at least twice a day a while back too, just
to many post otherwise. Especially since I'm also wrangling
this particular forum! Thanks for your introduction and glad to
have you with us after your long reading period.

I'm in the same age category as you are (24) and am also working
on some shorts and a feature to produce.

Welcome Shawn!

Glad you decided to come in from the wings. It sounds like you have a very positive, decisive outlook. That's half the battle. Keep us posted on your work when you get a chance. We love "war" stories here. And, of course, don't hesitate to call upon your fellow members when you need info or opinions.

Best Regards,

I guess I should have replied early, but any way, nice to see more English people on this board and I hope you find it a useful resource, just like I have.

Hope everything is well,

helpful tips would be nice!

My name is Jasen and I've just started a company that mainly does Graphic Design: Print and Intactive. Some projects just came up and I have to shoot a couple 3:00m videos. I have a XL1 but for the past year and a half I've mainly used it for personal use. The video I have shot looks pretty good but it's nothing special. Well, I want to push my Canon and make these videos look great. For starters, I'm renting an old western dolly and jib arm but I still need a lot of help. I see tons of XL1's with filters, different lenses, microphones, etc., and that's the kind of info I need!

I'll be shooting mainly outside and interviewing about 10 people. Any helpful tips would be nice!

thanks

Hello and welcome

I, too, have anXL-1. the most impotant filter you can get is a UV or skylight 72mm, They are mainly to protect your lens from dirt and being scatched. For a mic set up I use a Lectrosonic UHF from Location sound. It's range is phonominal.
With it I have a lav, a hand mic, and a shotgun. They all transmit through the UNF transmitter. I'm not saying their inexpensive, but I've had fantastic results.

If you have any Questions e-mail me
