  1. The zoom h4n inputs are too hot I hear. Zoom needs an attentuator. (Which one?) Which recorder can I plug directly into and achieve audio book quality? The R-26 sounds good, would the H4n sound the same because I'm bypassing the pre's? (I wish to spend $250 I'm using an mkh 415 into Sound Devices mm-1 and I could go into my computer but I want to shut down the noise during recording. That's why I want a digital recorder but also for field recording. Would it be better to use the computer if I moved it?
  2. Film is so cool looking. I like what you did. I love the subject matter too. I don't like the "fuji rip" thing. I know what you meant but vidiots will have one more thing to say.
  3. A cyber cloud is not a sufficient medium. There's no original with distinguishing characteristics. There's no look that resembles the imagination. There's no unique mixture in each frame. It's a robot that someone programed to move the paint brush for you. I give it a zero on the art medium scale.
  4. There's nothing to worry about if going by the predictions. The demand for film is pretty great. Many that switched to digital lacked the love for it in the first place and since they can't even get the death of analogue tape right nor the weather tomorrow, then who cares what they think? Judging from analogue tape still having a solid place in the recording industry and the new demand for Vinyl records, I'm wondering what prompts they're "all knowing" predictions? Certainly they don't understand the value of a tangible medium to an artist.
  5. Film looks like a separate dimension. It makes people feel like they're dreaming what's on screen. That is the right tool for the job and the right tool for the job is always gonna have a place in the tool box.
  6. Old news but; You can edit in 24fps and have a sound or a snare/whatever occur at every frame. Since film cameras are mechanical they have a repeating noise pattern that reflects the speed. If it's off, the sound will start to reverberate. You should be able to tell which one sounds faster, the camera or the repeating snare.
  7. This is so awesome. Thanks you guys. I wish I knew more. When I found out about the 2 perf I could hardly sleep. Aranda has a couple 2 perfs for under $5k I think one Camflex and 2 Arri's. I'm thinking of a 4perf Konvas that I can matt for a double pass as an option. Is that a nightmare? I've only shot 1000 ft of film. Q. Is fresh 16mm film always a better image than short ends? Q. Is fresh 35mm always better than Short? Q. Is .18cents per ft. a good price for 35mm short ends?
  8. Speak of the devil. http://www.petapixel.com/2012/05/23/omnivisions-new-sensor-could-bring-4k-video-to-your-next-smartphone/
  9. Here, here. I wish I knew the difference between size and latitude. Does it mean that in order for a lens to be capable of transmitting 4k resolution that it has to be sizable? I haven't started lens study yet. PS. I'm sure there will be fantastic cat videos by then. Internet will speed up and phones will have Auto Movie aps with Lucas Shot director. Darth Vader will audibly instruct you where to put the camera. Light Saber sounds, the whole bit.
  10. I like you Travis. I know the math. Digital is more expensive in many circumstances. Clients hire people because they don't know what to do. They want something that get's clients, attention and respect. Giving them something that causes them to lose respect in some communities isn't what they want. They don't know the difference but we do. Digital marketing has been focused on the death of film since the 70's. Do you really want to help those bastards? Plus film looks magnificent and it's timeless. You can't put a price tag on that. I care what happens to film because I want to shoot it. There are many like me.
  11. I'm just trying to help film be around. I'm trying to help and I don't care what anyone thinks about me. Film is more important to me than my pride.
  12. I always get humbled when insulting people.
  13. The gold thing was a bit much I admit. But do you make your own films?
  14. Your case was rested long time ago has been. You must feel really bad to attack a nobody like me. What did I say? I was right and you blew up. Your a filmmaker? what did you do?
  15. Isn't that were all artist' are? We know it's all about money for you. It's your master and you do what your boss says. Gary puts the lotion on it's skin, it does this whenever it's told.
  16. The camera in my phone would be worth a fortune 30 years ago. What's gonna happen when 4k cameras are stocking stuffers? Every movie made with a Red or Alexa etc... Will seem cheesy. Once upon a time in Mexico all ready looks like my camcorder. Hmmm?
  17. I want to be part of a group that just shoots film. There's got to be one, I just shoot film. Where are they? I'll start one if I have to. Anyone know?
  18. I have no respect for people that shoot digital over film. Especially now when video is so expensive. I don't care what they say, their not cool.
  19. How much did the video camera cost you? And how many hours of post did you need? I bought a 35mm cam for $900. Bought 2 U16s for a total of $700 and I can shoot a feature for the price of a few days rental of an arri alexa. How much was your camera to buy or rent?
  20. In case your too lazy to click the link. Meanwhile, here is the top 10 best-selling vinyl albums of 2011: 01. The Beatles - Abbey Road (41,000) 02. Fleet Foxes - Helplessness Blues (29,700) 03. Bon Iver - Bon Iver (27,200) 04. Mumford & Sons - Sigh No More (26,800) 05. Radiohead - The King of Limbs (20,800) 06. Adele - 21 (16,500) 07. Bon Iver - For Emma, Forever Ago (16,200) 08. Wilco - The Whole Love (14,900) 09. The Black Keys - Brothers (14,200) 10. The Black Keys - El Camino (13,800) Has anybody actually seen real fools gold? It has little square type chunks sort of like pixels but real gold has soft rounded edges. It's very much like film vs video to me. The fool buys something and get's all excited about it so his friends and family don't have the heart to tell him that it doesn't look like the real thing. Very much like digital vs film.
  21. You stand corrected but refuse to admit that your a prick. "Crack pot"? Well if that isn't the pot calling the kettle black I don't know what is. I think your seeing a reflection of yourself mate.
  22. http://www.tinymixtapes.com/news/sales-vinyl-records-increase-sixth-straight-year-popularity-lensless-glasses-possibly-related Thanks. Rubbish even. Nice word. Do some research before you insult people. Everyone in the know now knows that you talk out of the side of your neck. What a jackass.
  23. I shot some short ends of 5245 50d from Shallow Hal. I love that stock. I loved that I had the same film that a big movie had. It was my first short ends and my second 35mm roll ever. Mine didn't look as good as theirs. Poor transfer. I'm dreamin about 2 perf 5219 but I want to shoot the same scene with all of them to learn. I took a long break.
  24. I'm not sure this came across like I meant; No one can predict the future of digital no matter how it appears or what seems to make sense because it looked like CD's were going to kill Vinyl records but that didn't happen and now records have come back with "record breaking sales" So if people are going to pretend they know what the outcome of film will be then I'm going to predict it for the positive and I actually believe that the Arri Alexa will be obsolete before super 8mm will and I'll put money on it.
  25. I'm being funny, I hope I didn't hurt your feelings. Digital is very capable of getting the job done. But it's like saying a Tube amp is better than solid state and having someone say "can you provide objective test" Every guitar player I know will probably say something like; I got your test result right here.
