Re: Settings for dance recital

Good stuff. Yeah I don't know how I left out the camera. Sony EX1, so I was considering a way to lower contrast a bit.

I'm selling DVD's and BluRays and I have had problems in the past (shooing...

This isn't going to be a cinematic masterpiece you're saying? Good stuff. Thanks.

Settings for dance recital

With stage lighting, I was wondering if I should attempt to lower contrast by using a cinema picture profile? Anyone have a suggestion? I'm recording to an Atomos recorder in ProRes so should have...

Shooting Stage-Events with M4/3 mirrorless cameras

I hope it's OK to post here even though my question is more about just plain stage event video and not streaming. The wedding/event forum is all about weddings and no one posts about stage events.

Re: First Impressions of the GH5

To me, this seems like the ideal wedding camera. You can obtain narrow DOF when desired but the gear is a fraction of the weight of full-frame cameras. And now with in-body stabilization, my kit is...

Shutter Speed question

I know this is a basic question but it's something I've never fully understood. Sometimes I switch to 60fps when I know I want a particular shot finished in slow-motion. What would happen if I forget...

Re: GH4 low light vs GH3

Thanks Noa. So if I shoot the GH4 at 1080p, I won't see a low-light advantage?

GH4 low light vs GH3

I've read the GH4 is better in low light than the GH3. I have the follow questions about this:

Does the GH4 have better sensitivity at any given ISO?

Or Does the GH4 just have cleaner image at...

Vimeo "Album" or "Channel" for wedding clients?

Newbe - EX1 Workflow with Vegas

I'm new to the Sony EX1 world and I see that Sony divides long takes into smaller files inside of individual folders. It seems a bit clunky to open each folder individually to copy each file to...

Which SDI cable?

I'm connecting Sony EX1r cameras through a Panasonic HS50 Switcher and into a Atomos Ronin recorder. I'm overwhelmed with the selection of SDI cables. Do I need to select one with "HD 3G" in the...

Dave,

So, I'm going to take your advice and bring a dedicated laptop just for this part of my operation. I tested Handbrake and Sony Catalyst Browse and got the following results:

Re: 1st and last time I'm editing ProRes in Vegas for a major project

So you are saying Avid DNxHD would be a better choice (over ProRes)? I'm not doing color grading or anything. Just simple stage event video.

Re: 1st and last time I'm editing ProRes in Vegas for a major project

Given the problems that crop up from using ProRes in Windows/Vegas, would Avid DNxHD be a better choice for recording format? I have a new Atomos Ronin and that is one of the options.

Re: Multicamera HD-SDI set

Hey, Thanks for the response. I considered running analog house-audio directly to the Ronin but I'm thinking they'll be sync issues. Isn't the digital video delayed compared to analog audio?
