Which camera for 3000 bucks
by Philippe Orlando 4 years ago
I've been using a canon XF 300 for a while now. It doesn't belong to me. I've been fortunate to have it available through a cable access TV station. I'm mainly interested in fiction. I've done several

by Roger Martin 4 years ago
I really like my GH4 and use it when traveling, hiking, and outside Video. Even with a SpeedBooster it can not handle really poor low light. I use my A7s for that at 6400 ISO but it requires a 4k reco

Even though mine has not arrived yet, I suggest looking at the Sony A7sII. Many improvements over the A7s and you will not need an external recorder unless you want unlimited Video length.

If you want an interchangeable lens CamCorder then save up for the JVC LS300. When at NAB I went first to the Panasonic Booth then spotted the camera I wanted across the isle. If you want a really gre
LS300 Lens?
by Ron Dylewski 4 years ago
I like this camera, but need to know if there is a lens "out there" that would have the kind of range that your average "broadcast" zoom would. I would probably use EF lens, as there seems to be more
Re: LS300 Lens?
by Roger Martin 4 years ago
I wonder if the Sony FE 28-135 would work on this camera It is truly wonderful on an A7s. Maybe it could even be used with a SpeedBooster like my Nikkors I have a complete array of Lumix lens but they

by Roger Martin 4 years ago
I had an X1000 and really loved it. Only reason I sent it back and got an A7s was that nearly all my shooting is in low light that exceeded it's capability. I've been looking at the JVC LS300 and wond
Odyssey 7Q and Sony FS700 weirdness
by Jacob Giacometti 4 years ago
Hi! Why is this happening, I don't get it! I am shooting with the FS700 in 240fps, recording on the 7Q. Everything seems to be set properly. When I play back the DNG sequence on the Odyssey, everythin
Re: Odyssey 7Q and Sony FS700 weirdness
by Roger Martin 4 years ago
Check your setting again on both camera and Odyssey. I found it easy to mess mine up. One thing it allowed was to DownRes my A7s from 4k at 30fps to 1080P60 which played back crazy because it should h

I'm woefully ignorant of any all of the current video recorders, as I have never had to use one... ever. So I would welcome some advice... Here's the situation... The Canon C300 is my primary camera,

Are you using AutoISO I thought my Auto White Balance was messed up, but when I changed to a preset ISO many of my problems went away.

I got the GH3 with 14-140 and the D5300 went on the shelf although I think the Video quality was slightly better and High ISO much better on the Nikon. I then bought the SpeedBooster to use my Nikkors

I've had Canons and prefer Nikons for both stills and video However, neither will do continuous video unattended. I just got a GH4 and it is at least 10% better than the GH3 in every way. May not soun

You can set the input on the Ninja to 1080i 60 It will take at least a firmware upgrade to go to 1080P 60 That is why I am looking at the ODYYSEY. It is supposed to have the codec and also a 7 inch Hi

Re: why to use or not use vegas to burn dvd's
by Roger Martin 8 years ago
Why not If your edited video file is too large, I find it is very difficult to use Vegas Pro to produce a DVD. Typically, I have to reduce the quality too much and don't want to burn a Blue Ray disc.
