  1. What handheld cameras did they have with BNC outs back then?
  2. I was watching an old re upload of the Disney Summer Jam 1999 concert and there was a shot where I think it was a flawless barrel roll spin of the camera on one of the backup singers. Here is a link providing all necessary samples: https://imgur.com/a/rJ5xYGZ Was this done with just an ENG camera and nice hands? Is there a rig I'm unaware of? The fact they did this in a broadcast workflow astounds me. All answers appreciated!
  3. I bought an Alexa classic last summer because someone was selling it ridiculously low and did a couple shoots with it. You will not find a better looking camera in terms of skin tones and color science period (unless it's another Arri product). Also doesn't overheat like RED. Far more suited for a studio setting than anything else. Hit me up if you want to buy, I might need spare cash this month.
  4. I went to a machinist last week to invent a little baby pin with a 5/8 27 threading at the end of it to easier integrate my microphone clips into my lighting rigs for overheads. I googled for months and couldn't find a piece exactly like that. Anyone else have little quick tools custom made for their specific workflows?
  5. No what I'm saying is, let's say you're correct about a couple schools here and there. They are still massively outweighed by the bad schools which have far more money for advertising. Hence why I graded my accuracy. You being from the UK and me being from USA might have a big part in our disagreement. In USA kids exit secondary school at 18 and are forced to go to a University straight out of the gate. Secondary education ends for you guys at 16? Then there's some college thing that's 16-18? Then you go to Universities? That difference there probably leads to a very different way higher education is marketed. The American University system is not only ineffective for creating competent set workers, but also exploitative by coming into high schools and advertising that they're the only route to kids as young as 15. I say they're ineffective because the staggering majority of media/film schools here teach film theory, only providing education for producers/directors/screenwriters, when we both know the number of jobs for those positions is minuscule compared to camera department, grips, gaffers, set builders, etc. Kids going to film school in the NYC area told me that NYU owns the rights to your picture if you shoot using their gear? Like maybe the NFTS doesn't do that? But I don't think most kids here have the money to study abroad.
  6. If I'm only right about 98% of them being a joke then that's still an A grade, no?
  7. Fun little story on that. I was teaching a workshop to a guy currently attending film school and he wanted me to go over how exposure, stops, and dynamic range worked like essential knowledge within the technical end of cinematography. I asked why his school wasn't teaching it and he said they only did that end of education for the advanced students. Film school is a joke.
  8. I'm not an engineer by any means but essentially he routes something directly from the sensor to an internetal chip/converter thing, then runs that to the SxS slots.
  9. It's because the orange and teal thing has become a color grading trope at this point. Artists are always looking for the new new thing.
  10. 7Q would be overkill unless you have the SLOG 444 upgrade. Make sure they're promising that upgrade in the listing!
  11. There's so many things like flaring, flange distance, focus breathing, etc that comes with learning about lenses. Does anyone have a link to a video that goes from the ground up on how camera lenses work? To the point of explaining the physics of how all these different problems come to be? I know about a few problems here and there but I feel like knowing the basis of how it works will help me react to new problems down the line.
  12. I think F3L was a marketing model, same camera but just came with the Sony cine prime lenses. I know a guy in New York who can modify F3s to record 4:4:4 internal to SxS Pro+ cards if you were trying to find a better version of the camera.
  13. I mean I've hammered nails with these and they still work well. I prefer them to Matthews gripheads because the tightening handle is ergonomic for my big hands. How many years do we need our grip heads to last here?
  14. Damn Indy Mogul keeps giving me flashbacks to those 2009 tutorial videos showing how to digitally blow your arm off in Sony Vegas.
  15. Thanks.. yeah these bitcoin miner people are upsetting me for hiking these prices. The cards are 2-3 years old now and still demanding retail level prices.
