The steadicam is a flyer. We had a DIY of sorts- the magiqcam- for a year or so but quickly outgrew it.

Dennis,

I do a lot of grading to every shot. Maybe 1/3 of the shots receive color/exposure correction, then I throw on 3-4 other filters to customize the look. These days, every shot in an SDE or highlights is thoroughly graded. I'm using FCP and a combination of the built in filters.



Wow that is a lot of grading. What filters do you use in FCP if you dont mind me asking?

Hi Dennis,

I use several copies of the 3-way corrector quite often. Nattress's simple curves are also a staple for my color work.

Shooting wedding is a sure way of slimming down, especially with all those steadicam gears. You be sweating most of the time I guess. :)

Congratulations on the partnership with Canon, Patrick. Your team certainly deserves some more exposure (pardon the pun).

Thanks Travis,

which Canon vid cams

Hi Patrick,

I'm sorry if you've posted this already, but what Canon vid cams were you using for this shoot? I'm still quite pleased with my PD/VX combo (thank you) and I plan on using those for the next year. About a year from now I may be ready to go HD. I had an XL, now I have the Sony cams that you know about. Maybe my next move will be back to Canon. (?) Seems as though their marketing idea of working with you is working. ;-) I am impressed... not just with your work, but also with the performance of the cams.

BTW: I've learned a bit of working with the Magiqcam but I still have a way to go before I consider myself good with it. I think I need to experiment more with balancing.

Always a treat to see your stuff. As always, thanks for sharing.


-Don B.

^^ Hi Don,

on behalf of Pat,

http://stillmotionblog.com/?page_id=153

In short we use pretty much all the 1/3" ccd/cmos canon hdv cameras available today (other then the xh-G1).

Thank you Michael. I knew I saw the info somewhere. I forgot it was on the blog and not in this thread. Thanks.

Thanks for posting that for me Mike.

Right now we have the XL-H1 as the steadicam cam, several XH-A1s for the brevis, tripod cams etc. and hv20s to import and backups.
