Hmmm, I haven't had the luck of actually seeing anything that
was shot with a DV camera. I hope to catch 28 days later on
DVD when it comes out here.

question about slates.

from what i have seen it seems that the Denecke SMPTE time code slate is an industry standard for shooting music videos. my question is...why do they need time code slates when most new 16mm ann 35mm cameras have time code counters built right in? I also see that most other types of slates have room for more information (roll number, scene, take, etc.) would one of these slates be more useful?

I've got the same problem from down here in Fredericksburg, VA. Before deciding on and purchasing the Sony VX2000, I was desperate to try it hands on, and after searching the internet, and making multiple phone calls, I could only come up with a single shop (a RITZ camera store in DC) that claimed to have the vx2k on display, but upon further conversation, they mentioned that they would have to try to find the battery or power cord if I wanted to turn it on! I didn't bother making the hour trip up there. I've had to rely HEAVILY on reviews and comments from excellent sites like dvinfo, for everything including lighting, audio, tripods, etc., making all my purchases online. Only one deal went totally sour, through ebay, and the credit card company says they'll handle that for me. That was my shot at a pd150.

Space between lines of text in PS 7.0 for Mac

Can anyone tell me how to change the spacing between lines of text in Photoshop 7.0 for Mac?

In the older versions, it was an option in the popup box when you created the text layer. Now...I can't find where to change it.

Never mind...digging around on the internet I found my answer. Amazing how I've gotten by this long without knowing this!

For those of you that don't... highlight the text, then click the newly appeared button up on the toolbar for preferences (next to the curve on a path button) and a popup window will appear. There, you'll see all the controls for text.

HTML Code for e-mail content - help quick?

Howdy. I know the code to make text automatically appear in the subject line when you click on the e-mail address. How do I make text appear in the body of the e-mail so all the sender has to do is click on the e-mail address and press send? Thanks.

How many?

This was e-mailed to me, I also found the same thing on photo.net. Pretty funny, you should all get a laugh out of it.

How many discussion group posters does it take to change a lightbulb?


1 to change the light bulb and to post that the light bulb has been changed


14 to share similar experiences of changing light bulbs and how the light bulb could have been changed differently


7 to caution about the dangers of changing light bulbs


7 to point out spelling/grammar errors in posts about changing light bulbs


5 to flame the spell checkers


3 to correct spelling/grammar flames


6 to argue over whether it's "lightbulb" or "light bulb"


... another 6 to condemn those 6 as anal-retentive


2 industry professionals to inform the group that the proper term is "lamp"


15 know-it-alls who claim they were in the industry, and that "light bulb" is perfectly correct


19 to post that this forum is not about light bulbs and to please take this discussion to a lightbulb forum


11 to defend the posting to this forum saying that we all use light bulbs and therefore the posts are relevant to this forum


36 to debate which method of changing light bulbs is superior, where to buy the best light bulbs, what brand of light bulbs work best for this technique and what brands are faulty


7 to post URL's where one can see examples of different light bulbs


4 to post that the URL's were posted incorrectly and then post the corrected URL's


3 to post about links they found from the URL's that are relevant to this group which makes light bulbs relevant to this group


13 to link all posts to date, quote them in their entirety including all headers and signatures, and add "Me too"


5 to post to the group that they will no longer post because they cannot handle the light bulb controversy


4 to say "didn't we go through this already a short time ago?"


13 to say "do a Google search on light bulbs before posting questions about light bulbs"


1 forum lurker to respond to the original post 6 months from now and start it all over again.

Here is my take on the same matter:

How many vx2000/pdx150 group posters does it take to change a lightbulb?

None. PDX150 does not need light bulbs. It shoots excellent movies in the dark.

How many trv950/pdx10 group posters does it take to change a lightbulb?

None. They become completely non-operational in the dark.

How many GL1/2 group posters does it take to change a lightbulb?

None. They have so many stacked pixels on their LCDs that they can lit a night with them.

Hope this does not sound offensive.

Hey Wentworths! You okay? (Kelowna fire)

I've been watching the photos come in from the forest fire threatening Kelowna. Let us know you guys are okay.

is Pieces of April (katie holmes+other famous actors) shot on DV?

http://www.apple.com/trailers/mgm/pieces_of_april/

Check it out for yourselves. i was very pleasantly surprised. i goto quicktime's movie trailers quite often and usually they're all in pristine filmic quality. when i recognized the 'dv nature' of the movie i was like, "WHOA MAN!" things are changing =). i know i know it's the not first certainly but it's just more and more of it are appearing =).

Video piracy ring busted in Honolulu

We may be the smallest state, but we're the best at something! You think this would come out of someplace closer to a foreign border instead of the middle of the ocean.

"FBI officials said it is the largest illegal operation in the country busted by law enforcement involving video compact disc and digital versatile disc production."

You can't tell by looking at a quicktime 6" wide screen. You have to blow it up 80x to judge that.

Yes it was done in digital on a $160k budget. It's only 81 minutes so that's a tad short for a feature.
