    Audio Improvement - Mobile Streaming

    Hello all, I originally posted this to another forum, but this is less camera specific, so I thought this community might have some great insight... By introduction, what I'm trying to do is primarily helping out the Chapel here in Sicily with the streaming setup for their weekly services, but...

    Sean Tucker Video on Portrait Lighting.

    Sean Tucker on reproducing the portrait style of Martin Schoeller. A nice technical video on lighting with links to his PS techniques, which I plan to watch tomorrow. I found this very interesting but your mileage may vary.

    Sigma Sigma FP Manufacturing Process Video

    I'm a sucker for a factory process video - here is the process for making the FP, a surprising amount of manual process (I'd assumed there was much more end to end automation), hand-fitting and testing/QC - Bonus, Sigma lens manufacturing process - in many ways, this is the more interesting video

    Microphone external vs built-in

    Hi folks! I wonder about this small thing. Have newer liked movie shooting too much. But I am quite fond of going on concerts and occasionally record a part here and there just for memories. And I shoot some documentary things sometimes also. Rarely, I must say, but anyway. However. These last...

    Sony Interesting video compares A1/A7R V/A7 IV/A7S III normal and low light

    This is a pretty decent video, kind of long at almost 1/2 hour but some very interesting results, including the A7R V in crop mode compared to the others. I'm not familiar with this reviewer but then I don't watch many of them, maybe some of you know who he is. The A7S III is kind of irrelevant...

    Advice Wanted Lapel Mic Recommendation

    I sometimes use an Olympus LS P4 voice recorder as a video microphone on my Olympus OM-D EM5iii. This picks up ambient sound way better than the camera's built in mic(s). A friend's just asked me to record a few teaching videos for her clients and I need a lapel mic for the LS P4. I'm in the...

    Advice Wanted Need help with low-light video settings

    The most I ever do with video is push the red button and take whatever it spits out. I figure as long as it's as good as my Betamax it'll be fine. :p I have need for some low light settings that will see limited use. This will be on a Sony A7 IV, but I am assuming (probably incorrectly) that...

    I have a box of old 8mm home movies from the '40's through the '60's and want to convert to digital and share with family. Looking at the Kodak REELS or the Wolverine Pro. Anyone have any experience with either of these? I'm leaning toward the Kodak for the added resolution but not sure how much...

    Is Video Driving Most of the Innovation in New Cameras? I find Thom Hogan interesting, if a bit curmudgeonly. It's an interesting idea that stills photography might be leveling off for many so that all of the new innovations are aimed at video.

    Upgraded to Mercalli V6 AI

    After 4 years or so of using V5, I saw that 6 was out. Now with Dual IS on my G9's I get very steady video. That being said sometimes you just need the extra or have to save an important take. 5 was very good, 6 is magic with the AI. I have a 12 core / 24 thread with 12 gig GPU and 3600 mz 64...

    Going to go with the Gh6 and the 14-140mm...anyone use this combo?

    My "good glass" (all M43 is good glass if you ask me) is 7-14, 12-35,35-100,100-400. I've also got the 7.5 FE and 60mm Oly macro (which is a fantastic lens). I was going to go for one of the f1.7 zooms and realized heavy and very duplicative of the FOV's I have for my non-PRO use. So I've been...

    Micro 4/3 OM-1 for video

    First time out with the OM-1 for video. I took 68 videos on Saturday, 1920x1080 at 60fps in 'normal' colour. Indoors, auto ISO ranging from 400 to 5000 (as the day progressed and the light started to fade) and the subjects were dancers. I used the 12-40 pro II, mostly at the 12-20mm range, and...

    Leica Interesting Video: Sold all his gear to switch to Leica

    Sony A7RIV as a video camera
