I'm not sure what forum would best address this question but I read this forum most often. I was looking to replace my 13" Sony CRT 4:3 output monitor with something 16:9, What is a affordable but dec
30p recording
by Chuck Farace 10 years ago
I know it is best to shoot sports in 30p when recording in HD, but if I shoot in SD is it better to go 30p vs 60i
Re: 30p recording
by Chuck Farace 10 years ago
I considered the 300 but have been reluctant due to the 1 3 CMOS chips with the use of fast moving sports. I attempted to rent one, but havent found a dealer in the area who has one. Most said they ha

XDCAM EX WorkFLOW FCP2
by Chuck Farace 10 years ago
I have read some of your posts on converting XDCAM EX-1 3 to SD in FCP2. I have searched the forums but cant seem to find the complete workflow that would produce good results and convert in a reasona
Re: XDCAM EX WorkFLOW FCP2
by Clint Fleckenstein 10 years ago
I've been using After Effects to do any slo-mo or downconvert work. It's an application designed to do things like that. Final Cut Pro really isn't; it does a poor job at both, in my opinion. I've alw
Format Choice
by Chuck Farace 10 years ago
Hi, I am looking at purchasing a new camera and have been reading posts on the Cow about editing in FCP2 with Sony's XDCAM SxS codec with GOP vs Panasonic's P2. I briefly rented a EX-1 and Panasonic 1

Alex Elkins "Can you definitely transcode XDCam to ProRes via L&T I'm not seeing any options at all for XDCAM transcoding" Ah...right you are. I have limited experience with XDCAM. I thought it was t
Shoulder Support for EX3
by Teresa Brown 10 years ago
Any recommendations for an EX3 shoulder support As a petite lady, the weight of the EX3 is restricting its use to a tripod. I went with the EX3 since it was allegedly more manageable than the EX1 off

Craig, I have read some of your posts on converting XDCAM EX-1 3 to SD in FCP2. I have searched the forums but cant seem to find the complete workflow you suggested, which is unlike Ken Stone's to DV
ex-3 choice
by Chuck Farace 10 years ago
Is the Ex-3 worth the difference in cost over the EX-1 How practical is it to change the lens to a longer lens cost wise Right now I will be down converting everything to SD, I'm hoping to get some HD
Re: ex-3 choice
by Clint Fleckenstein 10 years ago
I had a few minutes so I removed the EX-3 viewfinder and held it up to an EX-1. I got the impression that you didn't have one of these to play with, so I figured I'd give it a try and show my results

Re: Camera Choices

Thanks Steve for the info. I would like a shoulder mount but how decent is the new JVC I know the new HPX300 from Panasonic was a big disappointment. Everyone agrees the EX produces great images just

by Chuck Farace 11 years ago
Does anyone know where you can see the total recorded hours on the HPX 170 I only could find hours of operation which is how many hours it has been powered up. I assume there is a hidden menu

On time, record time, what's the difference There's no heads. What would be nice is a p2 card insertion meter.
HPX 170 a good choice?

I am a video producer who shoots primarily sports along with corporate and some documentary work. I have a Macbook PRO FCS 6. I was looking to add a new camera, and thought it made sense to go with an
Re: HPX 170 a good choice?
by Chuck Farace 11 years ago
Thanks Dan and Steve, You both made very good points and I will take your advice and try to pick up a used HVX 500. My budget was around $6000, but I guess like you said doesn't exist. Who knows when
