  2. Try grading a monochromic image of the scene blue to see how that looks. In the past, they've shot day for night seascape scenes in B & W film and then printed them blue,.

  5. My message referred to after you've created the loops,
  6. I was told that pushing the loop up on the pressure plate, so that the film springs back to find its natural loop position is the way to go. It always worked for me.
  7. You need to be careful about avoiding knocking the viewfinder, otherwise the verticals can be knocked off. You;re less likely to get unintentional dutch angles with a tripod, but these can happen when hand holding with an off V/F..

This build will be the last of 2020, so the final release of V2021.1 has been delayed to January.
  9. Usually the traditional director's viewfinder covers a 10 to 1 focal length range. Anything out of that range involves using either mounting the shooting lens on a director viewfinder or you could use a digital stills camera and use a "crop factor" or a focal length equivalency table.

  12. Keeping fit when you can't get out is part of it. If you can't go to the gym, doing exercises in your home can work. Long walks or going up and down the stairs for 15 minutes in bad weather will help.

  20. Are you shooting on film or video? Given how complex modern windscreens can be, with bonded fitting etc, which requires a specialist window fitter, it's unlikely such a windscreen would exist.

  23. TV studio and OB camera operators do operate with the camera on the side of their hip, and cradled in their arm, using the viewfinder for framing. I've done it a number of times with Betacams. However, I wouldn't want to do it for more than a few shots.
