  1. The second revision of the V14.6 beta is now available https://www.lwks.com/index.php?optio...emid=81#199690 This has a number of fixes.
  2. The film and TV industry isn't like going to college, you will find all sorts of negative forces going on, as well as positive ones. Phil points out the downsides, which is only fair, you will find praise, but don't always expect it to be genuine. There can be all sorts of politics going on that you're not aware of. All you can do is be upbeat and positive, regardless of what's going on, even on a cold wet day, with the rain running down your neck.
  3. No, grain size is a factor because of the smaller S16 neg and if you want a really shallow DoF. You can have a visually great S16 film, but they are different.
  4. Seems Russia has it's own version of events: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-48559289
  5.

  6. A discussion with Yosuke Yamane, Director of Panasonic’s Imaging Network Business Division https://www.fdtimes.com/2019/06/02/panasonic-s1h-full-frame-24p-6k/
  7. You seem to be doing a whole series of topics on the meaning of characters/camera/vehicles doing this or that. .
  8. Panasonic have announced their new cinema camera; https://www.redsharknews.com/production/item/6400-the-new-lumix-s1h-full-frame-at-6k-this-is-a-serious-cinema-camera https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/06/01/panasonic-s1h-full-frame-mirrorless-6k-24p/
  9. Cooke have started a website where you can compare films shot on Cooke lenses. http://shotoncooke.com/videos/ Some background information https://www.provideocoalition.com/shotoncooke-a-new-online-gallery-to-show-how-cooke-lenses-are-used/
  10. Back in the day, professional editors cutting 16mm camera originals (i.e, reversal), which is going to be transmitted, wore cotton gloves.
  11. Don't confuse VHS with D-VHS. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D-VHS Mini DV took over on the camera side, so HDV would be the equivalent for HD on camcorders. JVC made some 720p HDV cameras, there are 1080i cameras made by other manufacturers such as Sony and Canon. These have been replaced by later cameras, but you can still find them on ebay.
  12. I suspect your handle has become worn over the years, so working loose. If you can find a newer one, with less worm components, you will find it to be very firm for hand holding. I changed mine a few years before selling the camera.
  13. Not great, but some Lightworks users do manage to run the program with Intel HD graphics cards.
