  1. Prices of F3 bodies are going to be shooting through the roof on eBay now... :-/ Didn't they include the upgrade essential "for free" (they held the price of the body the same) with the F3L? As the original C300 put a lot of pressure on Sony to be price competitive.
  2. My GF too his an artist, we perhaps could make our place an art gallery too if I for once tied up the place and organized all my sound gear! oops
  3. It is expensive to properly store and maintain a film archive.
  4. If you're wanting a frugal IFB/Comtek alternative for small shoots, then this from Leicozic is surprisingly good and extremely affordable:
  5. I'm not disagreeing about the F5 being a better camera! Is why I keep on being tempted back to the dark side, to buy a new camera such as the F5 to upgrade from my F3 However, most people don't see the point in an F5 over and FS7 and won't pay extra for an F5. Thus why we're seeing a situation where an F5 can sell for very similar prices (or just slightly more) to a FS7 secondhand. Yes, I've got a friend who is an F5 owner and just got the FX9. We're doing a shoot together for an advert this monday. BTW, totally random factoid: I just heard about a Sony F5 that had been modded to have a Lemo timecode input instead of BNC!! :-o
  6. Prores Pro??? Do you mean ProRes RAW?
  7. Cheers for your contribution Tyler, I'd just add as well that the editor and his assistants are just a small part of the total post production team! Like you said, there is also color grading, but also an entire post production sound team, plus the VFX, and much much more.
  8. Just look at the credits of any blockbuster. The answer is clearly: YES
  9. Where are the 160K+ deaths in Sweden? The proof is lacking. While we're certain to experience economic devastation. We're on the fast track to double digit unemployment. (if we're not there already) Based on a discredited model. That article was from March, don't think anybody can say with a straight face now in May that we'd have got 80K deaths without a nationwide lockdown.
  10. Do you only make music videos?? What about boom ops.... Nope, I simply don't buy the claim our PM made that 80K kiwis will die unless we got put under pretty much house arrest. That was a total over the top reaction our government did, we could have taken a more moderate balanced approach instead.
  11. No, my point was we were sold lies as the basis for our lockdown in NZ. (80K deaths in NZ, which is ridiculous. A total lie, no way that would have happened. That number for instance is far higher than in Sweden. Which has double the population of NZ, and not to mention is in a very different situation: is closely connected to the rest of Europe, vs a very isolated island nation)
  12. In our country we were told there could be eighty thousand deaths which is why we must shut down (the harshest lockdown in the western world!), that turned out to be total lies and nonsense. In future, if we know "nothing" then perhaps we shouldn't take actions which we know for 100% certainty will massively negatively impact millions of people's live? I hope we learn a lesson from this not to overreact on the basis of very shaky evidence, but I fear we won't and in only a few years from now we're going to repeat this entire mess all over again!
  13. An American friend of mine made this video about the film industry, and how shutting down our "non-essential" industry impacts jobs across the wider economy and not just us in the film industry.
  14. Don't think I've ever recently seen a product for the sound department get leaked so much before the manufacturer even says anything officially about it, there has been lots of chatter already about the Wisycom MCR54 on social media! As this a major new announcement, the first time ever that four channels of wireless has been squeezed into a SuperSlot receiver. (true diversity too, that's eight receiver boards crammed into there!! And all that only uses at max 2.5W) The pricing is cheaper than expected: https://www.raycom.co.uk/product/wisycom-mcr54-four-channel-slot-in-receiver/ £2,880.00 inc VAT (£2,400.00 exc VAT) Maaaybe this means it will come in just slightly under US$3K in the USA? https://www.raycom.co.uk/product/wisycom-mcr54-quad-4-channel-rx-with-4-x-tx-and-base/ £6,360.00 inc VAT (£5,300.00 exc VAT) for a kit.
  15. South Africa is open for business again: https://www.juicefilm.tv/news/south-africa-reopens-for-filming-2 Am sure the general economic crisis across the world will lead to many countries cutting support for the arts
