When you import, check the options and select the option you need. I'm not in front of an Avid right now, and I don't remember the right one. I think in the newer version, there's an option called mai

How would you give them the footage if you were shooting on P2 Surely you were not going to walk the footage from station to station and have them copy it from the card First decide how you are going

Re: who is buying the new Nitris DX or Mojo DX?

I am looking at them. But then again I was cutting 30 minute shows on a media composer when the big step forward was getting the Avid Broadcast Video Board (a steal for a mere $10,000) which if I reme

Can AVID's Media Composer line edit from this camera at 1080p 30 Just got the EX-1 camera and want to shoot and edit 1080p 30 and am considering Avid.

Re: NAB in Flux
by Kyle Self 12 years ago
What NAB means to a company really depends on what they do. In the rush to show products and be seen everyone seems to have forgotten a long time ago that the B stands for Broadcasters. It was a no wi

This is my first post so a big hello to everyone. I am new to Video, coming from a DSLR background, so please forgive me if this a stupid question. I read on some review for the EX-1 that it took SxS

Sigh, the good old days, lol. I could call a free lancer 4 states away and of course he had a betacam. He would shoot, send the tape back, I would pop the tape into my old trusty BVW, and it played ba
Sony EX1 versus the Panasonic HVX200
by Pete Sake 12 years ago
Could someone give me the pros and cons of the Sony EX1 versus the Panasonic HVX200 I'm about to buy the Sony EX1 Thanks
Re: Sony EX1 versus the Panasonic HVX200
by Kyle Self 12 years ago
I would have to echo what Craig said. Before the 200 arrived I couldn't wait for it. I wanted one, then I got one to try and it was a huge disappointment Not only the 200 the 500 as well were way off
Tapeless Workflow For Freelancers

You misunderstood or had a rep who was lost. The EX is the only one which has CMOS chips. The 350 has ccd's.

Re: Selling video to National TV Show
by Kyle Self 12 years ago
Key part here, "I was hired to shoot a video". The video belongs to the person who hired you. They paid for it. Don't sweat it, if you got anything it would only be a dribble, maybe $50. K
Question about AJA and Leopard.

Oh god, lucky for me the worst I ever had to deal with was the Sony 5850 and 5000. I think I still have nightmares about tying to conform edit list on a CMX. K

Neither the z1 or HVX-200 are approved for anything more than partial content by Discovery, but I think you already know that. I think many of us are with Steve hoping that with the chipset thats been
Discovery and the HPX-500
by AccountNeedsRealnameUpdate 13 years ago
My understanding is that Discovery Communications has rejected the HVX-200 as a primary HD camera and only accepts it under their HDV guide lines. Of course they will take DVCProHD 60P from a Varicam,

by Kyle Self 13 years ago
I think the only one that can answer you question is Discovery. I don't know if they have an answer yet. Off hand as picky as they are it would not surprise me if the answer was no. If I had to guess
Why SONY FX1 could be better than JVC GY-HD201E

Hello All, Just thought I'd give everybody a heads up on the JVC HD200 series... I am primarily an editor, occasionally a cameraman on small shoots. The crew I work for has been working with a Sony FX

Re: P2 limited / patented to panasonic or 3rd party offers possible ?
by Kyle Self 14 years ago
I don't think most pro photographers use the cheapest cards. I also think recording a continous video stream would be more taxing on the card than even a burst of 3 to 5 pics. Thonk about it this way,
