Re: Bresser 60mm F/2.8 Macrolens for MFT

2:1 magnification is insane! I have 1:1 and have shot similar as photographs, but that looks much, much closer, and for the price, that's a brilliant bargain!

I have always wanted to do a, 'Bug's...

Re: My final wedding...

Great film. Had a lot of heart. I liked it a lot until I saw the MCFC cufflinks... then I didn't like it so much... haha just joking. I thought the shots with the Grandad were going to be terrible...

Re: Renting 3rd Camera for Wedding

The Father of the Bride - that explains it! Did you try any de-noiser software, because the audio from him sounded audible and fine, but the hiss was quite present.

The other issue I had with the...

Re: Renting 3rd Camera for Wedding

How did you capture audio for your wedding film? The background noise is something serious... I'd definitely recommend investing in audio capture before taking on another camera... I think that your...

Re: Beware: Vimeo's new default setting

I respectfully disagree from my own experiences. I guess you've never experienced the terrible quality Vimeo can happily output now unless you select your preferred frame rate, whilst I haven't...

Re: Beware: Vimeo's new default setting

IMDB does have good playback, particularly when considering that it also displays footage based on a user's Internet speeds. IMDB's 'Auto' function actually leaves a lot of room after the playhead of...

Re: A Wedding or a Funfair?

Congratulations, Pete! Hope you had a great day!

Re: Beware: Vimeo's new default setting

Mine too. If the default or lowest possible was 540p, then I would accept that... but sometimes it's a buggy mess. The codec is breaking up and it looks absolutely terrible. NO ONE wants to watch a...

Re: Beware: Vimeo's new default setting

Old news, really, not that it should be ignored.

I absolutely HATE what Vimeo has done. I would rather force my users to buffer at 720p, than to have them watch it in 360p. Non-HD content should...

Re: Another wedding

Seriously? In the UK, we are always wanting the extra angle I find, as I'm sure you have too, Steve?

Noa's headshots provide him with great moments to capture as and when necessary during the big...

Re: First foray into 4K with a AX100 - tips?

Re: First foray into 4K with a AX100 - tips?

Daft thing I've done - shoot indoors with the ND filter on setting 3! I was in a rush, and didn't realise why I needed to up the gain so much - figured it was just being poor in low light and...

Re: Wedding with a JVC gy ls300 and a Panasonic gx80

The more you watch it, the better it becomes. I loved the framing of the shoes using the foreground and symmetry. Such nice play with real audio and the background music. The opening sequence is...

Re: Memory card management on the day

I use the following case:

Each slot has a memory card, and each memory card is colour coded by a sticker. That sticker...

That's great to hear, Pete. I think you would be able to do deliver a great trailer either way! You're an inventive videographer and great at solving problems, so I'm sure you'll get worthy footage...

Re: Harsh?

In fairness to your viewpoint though, I really don't think we take much credit for the photographer's part.

If anything, it's sometimes cringe-worthy what some photographers set up (and it...

Re: Panasonic gx80 for weddings

Noa, the film you posted earlier that's 2 minutes and 2 seconds in length is well worth everyone's time! To think that is all shot handheld is commendable. I absolutely loved the movements and the...

Re: Went Crazy and got a GH4

Definitely. It's worth paying a premium for this too! I would pay another 250 for the GH5 if it enabled unlimited time recording.

Re: TV company wishes to use my footage

Or ask that your company name is clearly shown on all clips shown in the TV programme. If it's a local couple, often people in the area will watch the programme. That way, you might get more weddings...
