    Hey guys, I have an idea. To help bring SP back to life, I propose we should come together and create something great. We can use social media as our platform to announce the relaunch and tell people who don't already know about SP that the community even exists. Lets get this conversation going. Feel free to contribute any ideas you may have big or small and lets collaborate. Lets bring SP back to its former glory!

    What’s up guys. It’s been a minute. Me and Andrea just recently moved back to Florida and bought a house. I’m a full time UI/UX designer now working remote for a small start up, and make electronic music in my free time. Andrea is also a UI/UX designer as well. We’re 27 now and coming up on a 10 year anniversary. I still skate a little bit, but the majority of my free time is spent between working on personal design projects for portfolio and making music. But I’ve been trying to skate more lately. Most of my FL homies moved out of state but my filmer homie just moved back so we might go out and skate soon. I’m a chubby fuckin piece of shit now so on top of not skating very often, it’s also 100x harder lol.

    This is one of the first photos I ever shot that I was really stoked on. Wish the spot was still there, only went once and then it was removed a couple months later. I have been told it's too tilted. Opinions?

    Feels great to be posting here again. Its pretty crazy to see the people I looked up to on here are still active and ready to bring these forums back to life. A lot of you have shaped the way I film & edit skateboarding videos to this day. With that being said, I'm excited to share this new video series I am releasing through Transworld Skate for 2018. Filmed entirely in Toronto, Canada. More volumes to be released throughout the year. Enjoy

    Trying out a new GH5 at the park the other day: All of it shot with a Sigma 18-35 and Canon 8-15. The GH5 is fucking incredible.

    before you start trippin realize that 90% of the old japanese vx1000 threads are confusing as fuck, have broken links, expired photobucket pics and shit like that. i'm posting because japanese vx's are super cheap and i'm sure there are still lots of people who are just getting into it now. it can be a little intimidating at first and the full translation is scattered in a bunch of places so this will hopefully help. i tried to leave the japanese characters visible because it'll be easier if you just know what the symbol means. like on and off, you will see them a lot throughout the menus and stuff. also, this was just the first attempt at these pictures, so if i notice some room for improvements i'll do so. theres one here that i dont know. but i dont use the vtr mode at all anyways. and neither should you. the options in each menu are listed in this thread . maybe later i'll do all of those too this is only a translation. i'm not gonna give you lessons on how to use the camera cause that is well covered in many many many places like this pdf manual https://upload.cyfrowe.pl/cyfrowe/instrukcje/kamery/sony/instrukcja_sony_vx1000_eng.pdf if you have a jap vx and arent fuckin with it you can try hitting up kerry@videoelectronics.tv http://forums.skateperception.com/profile/4008-video-electronics/ and he will possibly convert it to english for you, for a fee shoutout to swackedflapjack, mkcolgan2, gaygaygalen, and flipsrowleykid

    Decided to submit an entry for this contest: http://girlskateboards.com/contest/ It's been snowing in Salt Lake and I've always wanted to make a video like this but never got around to it. Filmed in one day with Kaleb Hadlock.

    Welcome back to SP. As you may realize, things may look a little different but it's all still here. Things to make note of: I updated the software to the latest version so your display name will be your original user name... I could manually go and update them if necessary If you were a moderator, you may still be one but I'm likely to clean up the extensive list to something reasonable Many forums got merged together to save on wasted scrolling space just to get to AAG While SP was down, Photobucket changed their policy for hot linking photos, so there's bound to be thousands of broken images on here... That's out of my control This new software is way different than the stuff that was used previously, so hang with me as I figure stuff out There's an abundance of pinned topics cluttering everything up... This is an artifact of merging so many forums together and will be a manual process to clean up So what happened to SP? Long story short, I was getting a little bummed on the place as it had been a great collaborative community for nearly 10 years and then went off the rails as a spot for idiots and trolls so when some big bills for overages came in, I said "screw it, shut it off" and let it die. Fortunately over that year and half I received many emails, DM's and even people giving me shit in person about bringing it back. So here's to seeing if we can restore it to a place that fosters learning and all of that stuff. I hope you all enjoy, I'll look forward to seeing what everybody has been up to.

    It’s the was the 3CCD chip is alingned. No camera is absolutely perfect. Some are much better then others however it was never noticed from factory because the only thing it effects is the vig on the fisheye. With that said you can’t fix it without taking apart the whole vx.

    every VX1000 ive ever had has had this problem at one time or another and the solution was always to hit the camera, hard.... good luck
  21. 2 points
    Well, there's always that approach! If you don't get the desired result....hit it harder. The video runs through pretty much every board in the cam except a few. Thee CC/MG boards are often near the top of the list,

    id say use frame sampling if your not planning on slowing it more than the frames needed if that makes sense. if you're editing in 24 then you should be able to slow ur 120fps footage to 25% without needing to use any other interpolation option.

    I always thought that running this forum for such a long time was a real feather in your cap, Steve. I was around back in the EmpireofDirt days although I preferred the Shumways board. Is NightLifeMike still going on weekend-long benders? Funny... when I first was using this board back in 7th grade, I would wonder if I would be active on here forever. I would think of an older version of myself sitting in a cubicle watching clips in the montage section. I always sucked at skating and filming and was too scared to pursue something that I had passion for, like most of you seem to have done. Not sure exactly when the boards went down but I graduated school a few years ago and have been in NYC working at an investment bank. I'm still best friends with the guys I used to skate with 12+ years ago but we all sold our souls. Spend my time outside of work doing stupid bullshit, visiting my parents dogs and trying to figure out where the time went.

    the locations, shots, colour, pacing were all great. only gripe was that the script was a little too cliche/'written' for what seemed like was an amazing adventure and the speaker sounded like he was reading a paper/it was dishonest. the fully flared zoom was a little jarring but it was for effect obviously. some of those shots were super epic though! can't wait to see what else you do with the red. <3

    calipers are definitely not the right tool for this, the points are thin and not designed for something like this at all two small nails are better (that's what i've used in the past) , but if you can get snap ring pliers that will make front element removal a hell of a lot easier

    Thought I'd use this thread as a shameless plug for the previous year's GSD edit I made. It's not the best of edits, but it was a good day. The spot where all the blocks were setup has been a place you couldn't skate for years and they suddenly lifted the 'ban'. It's filled with cracks these days, though.

    One time on irc I talked to someone about flossing. Cant remember who but the convo lasted for like 20min and iirc it made Jordan leave the chat

    i know for a fact they have changed their optical coatings a few times since the mk1 release, and with those different coatings comes different flare colors and i would assume vignetting .

    Ask if they have any sample shots that were made recently. At that price it doesn't seem to bad, especially since it's 220. I'm sure if you don't like the results, you could make your money back selling it to someone else.

    My turbo e30 has been sitting since 2013. Ive been trying to give it to my brother and uncle for like a year and I think theyre finally going to take it. Shortly after finishing the build I realized that all I really wanna do is ride my skateboard so I said fuck wasting time and money on a car. My volvo 850 is still the greatest dd that ive ever owned and i fucking love that thing.

    Cheers for this - I know there are guides still from the old SP site on the Wayback archive and all, but this clears it up a lot and is easier to look at!

    I have never seen anything like that video you linked before.. That was something I never thought was possible. But about the SD vs HD thing. It all depends on what you like. I like vx but eventually I would like to own an extreme set up one of these days along side with my vx.

    Damn, it's like a class reunion in here. Worked a lot shooting commercials and feature films. Almost moved to Chicago. Self published a few photo books. Made a skate video. Started a magazine. Still skate everyday. Trying to move to LA soon...

    I got a Canon 1014 auto zoom, I love it. It has full manual aperture and a few shutter angle selections. The built in light meter works well to. I would say look on eBay, I got mine for 185$ but I've seen them go for cheaper. It also just depends on how much your trying to spend. You can totally find a cheap 40$ camera and still get that nice super 8 look your after. When buying them just make sure the motor runs well at all the speeds it offers, and that the seller has specified that it is tested and working. For Developing and Scanning, I use Pro8mm, Its a company in Burbank California. The develop & scan i get is a 2048 x 1080 2K 16x9 full format over scan, Its comes out to 75$ and looks great and works well in both HD and SD timelines. I believe you can also get a basic scan in 980 x 720p HD 4x3 and that costs 45$ They have a super 8 tips page one there website you might find useful https://www.pro8mm.com/pages/super-8-tips The Sekonic L-398 is a nice light meter, They make much nicer but also much more expensive options as well. A Kodak Cartridge goes for about 29$ http://store.kodak.com/store/kodak/en_US/DisplayCategoryListPage/ThemeID.4792758000/categoryID.70237500

    I went to UNCC for Poli Sci but I work for a beer distributor out here in Raleigh which is obviously directly related, hah. Don't really skate anymore, though I did hit the park a few times this fall and had a good time. Still sort of doing the photo thing, but mostly racing when I feel like being credentialed/working and not just drinking beer at the track. Really into guns and shooting. Hoping to start shooting some matches this year, eventually doing some 3-gun. Otherwise, still the same old stubborn libertarian that loved to argue in AAG and such. Fuck it's good to see some of these names again. Great times.

    I'm headed off to Santiago, Chile in a few weeks here. Mainly spending some time with my grandparents to meet the new parts of my family (wife,brotherinlaw,daughter). I'm pretty hyped because there will be some skating to be done, soccer games to attend, and LOTS of portraits to take of the family I see 2 times a decade.

    So good I won't lie though, seeing dudes sitting on a ledge a few hundred feet in the air to shoot a photo gets a physical reaction out of me.

    I graduated high school, got really into cars, went to college at central Michigan university where I’m still attending now. Lotta bullshit happened, I met Logan Burris and nich Estes at a car show in Georgia too. I went to Europe which was dope. It feels so good to be back and part of the community! Heres a pic of my car, if you wanna see more follow me on my Instagram! @joeyjacobss
