  1. I worked on a music video years ago. I was the loader but we had a "mesmerizer" It was an anamorphic element that was housed so it could spin thus creating distortion. here's a thread about it. http://www.cinematography.com/index.php?showtopic=45517
  2. The date on that article is April 1st!
  3. I am selling my chrosziel 4 x 4 mattebox as well as my chrosziel follow focus. On ebay. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260714823893 http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260714821192&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:US:1123 I hope they find a good home! -Rob
  4. I just had some files corrupt on my 7d CF cards. So I was missing the good old p2's!
  5. Does anyone have an opinion on the longevity of the P2 format? The ag af 100 will not record to P2 directly. Do you think Panasonic will make a p2 version some day? Are there limitations in the cmos chip that dictate not to go to p2? hmm....
  6. I guess so. I have had it happen with a BPM or UV filter. Maybe the front element was dusty? Or had a flare on it? -R
  7. Do you have a filter on the lens? Say a UV filter? This kind of ghosting can happen when the light bounces around between the lens and the filter. -Rob
  8. For various reasons I have to shoot a white cyc on location - in a warehouse. I would love more than the 12 foot width set paper can offer me. I am thinking of putting three set papers side by side and trying to light away the seams. And relying on post to smooth it out. Any other ideas? I have used a 20 by green screen in the past but do not want to go that way this time. Thanks!
  9. Interesting! So my choices (in an ntsc environment) are really only 24, 30 and 60 fps. Thanks for the info
  10. Has anyone shot 50fps in PAL and used it in a project where the bulk was 24 fps ntsc. I love 48 fps and I am wondering if I can toggle between 50 fps PAL and 24 FPS ntsc. Does PAL/ NTSC even matter when you are shooting 1080P h264 in the canon 7D? Let's assume it's for a music video that will live primarily on You Tube. Thanks!
  11. My research was about 10 years ago so things are probably really different now! -R
  12. The think about strobes for still cameras is that they expose for exactly 1/60 th of a second you expose exactly 1 frame of film. I shot a test on black and white reversal and when I looked at the clip there really was just one exact frame exposed by the flash. I believe the options are to use "lightning strikes" or paparazzi flashers that available light in NY has. You can program the length of the exposure and I believe you can either have someone randomly fire it or program a sequence. The other option, which doesn't seem like it would work for you is to buy some vintage flash bulbs on ebay and fire them with an old camera (or sveral old cameras). Because they are "analogue" they expose (over expose?) several frames.
  13. thanks Ram: That's great information. Do you know if there is a way to record the usb feed. say at a different frame rate. Like 6fps? Thanks!
