  1. Just purchased an ikan vl35, it has a battery plate for lp-e6/n. It works perfect when the ac is plugged into the wall, but won’t turn on with batteries. I’ve tried 2 lp-e6 batteries that are fully charged. I’ve looked everywhere an no one else seems to have this issue. Anyone here had this problem
  2. Thanks for the help, I actually have a friend who’s gonna let me borrow a set of filters for landscape work, other than that I’ll try to play around with front light tomorrow
  3. One of my biggest issues in my photography and videography is exposing for the skies and the forground at the same time. Many people have told me that it could do me good to get a circular polarizer, but I’m gonna wait till I have a little more money. Then I thought there might be something I overlooked, does time of day affect this at all. I’m aware of the affect golden hour and magic/blue hour have on color and light, but will either or some different time of day help to balance out the exposure.
  4. I will need to rethink the shot list and pre vis, in order to make it more safe and practical. Anyone know a good source where I could talk to professionals, I haven’t had any luck finding a stunt man forum
  5. I understand, perhaps I’ve been blind sided by ambition, ambitions always a good thing but it should never overcome the actors safety.
  6. Not sure if this is the right forum for this question but people here have always been just as helpful as can be so I'll give it a shot. I'm going to be shooting a personal short soon in the near future. I guess you'd label it in the horror genre but there a scene where one of our characters is attacked by a man twice her size. I'm going to be filming this scene in my parents bathroom. Our main actress will need to fall back in a chair on tile floor, fall to the ground with wrapped in the arms of a man twice her size(maybe not thaaaat big) and be thrown against a wall(I say thrown, but it's more like pushed a distance of 2 feet into wall). I've had many conversation with her about choreography to make sure she's feel safe and comfortable doing this. However, I remember seeing this video on the "Corridor Crew" youtube channel. I think it's this one... He talks about using insulite to cover a floor and then painting to look like tile. This sounds like it could be necessary to do to the floor for the falls, but whens she get's pushed into the wall would it be necessary to pad the walls aswell. Anyways , not sure anyone will have an answer, but if could some resources or other forums that would be great.
  7. Okay so I'm wondering how do i record a color temp preset versus white balancing each shot. I've been recording all my most recent stuff in cinema DNG Raw, will that mean that any white balance i set is simply meta data that can be changed in post or will i need to simply apply presets via an external monitor. By the way thanks for being so helpful, sorry about all these questions, i just wanna make sure I'm doing it the right way
  8. Thanks David. This has given me a lot to think about. Would setting the camera to daylight give me the most information to work with then
  9. This is sort of a mixed question. Long story short I've just bought a sigma fp as my first "cinema Camera". I'm in the process of growing to the next stage as a filmaker. One thing I've always wondered is what are the methods of white balanceing in digital cinematography. I've always liked the look of tungsten balanced film stock so in the past i would just set my camcorder and iphone to 3200k for mostly everything. When digital cameras change color temp is actually changing the way the image interprits light or is it just an affect of in camera post processing. If so wouldn't it just make more sense to this in post. What is the correct methods people use to set white balance on a proffesional setting, both in camera and in post production
  10. Thanks for the info Mr. Mullen. By the way, how did you light the pool scene in Jenifer's Body to get the reflecting water effect on the walls.
  11. I’m planning on purchaseing a sigma fp. They have a full frame aspect ratio of 3;2. I’ve haven’t been able to find any suitable anamorphic support that will work on at least a 35mm lens. Is their an equation to calculate anamorphic squeeze in relation to initial aspect ratio that will give you the end result.
  12. I understand, a viewfinder is not necessarily a necessity i guess, ill just live without one for now
  13. I’m planning on buying a sigma fp. I don’t know if this camera will allow you to hookup a monitor. If so, could you use one of these apps with a homage viewfinder attachment
  14. I've been researching the small hd sidefinder. I love the design of how it's composed of a modular monitor one can use a flip screen. My only question is, why hasn't someone made a side finder for a phone. I-phone's can play 4k footage easily nowadays, and with most camera companies having their own proprietery apps to regulate camera settings externally, I don't see how this wouldn't be feasible. I was thinking if there was enough room, one could model and 3d print a casing for the I-phone so that it could fit inside a small HD viewfinder, or perhaps print a whole new setup entirely and use the scope from an old zacuto z finder. Just wondering if it's possible, good EVFs sure dont run cheap.
