    Anomaly Issue 1

    These rule. Lovely framing on all three. The first one is really great.

    Don't Call It A Comeback

    I like the timing on the top shot better, gives that sense of alleyoop a bit more than the bottom. But the angle is better on the bottom shot. That dirty left part of the frame on the top shot seems useless to me, not motivated.

    Asher Stringer - bs tailside

    Agree, sensor dust on the upper left. Nice shot though I like the composition for the most part. The line of the board lines up a little too close with the blue part of the elevated roadway for me though. If you were a little lower you might have been able to avoid that
  5. What's up 2018 skate perception? I'm sure lots of people on here are still in school, but for those who are done with school - and still shooting skating, anybody getting paid to do it full time? My full time job is a freelance camera operator for various productions, but it all started here on SP for me. Learning the ins and outs of my mistakes and making my footage better and better. I really fell in love with the technical part of filming on this website. Also, if anybody is looking to talk about making a career of shooting television or online content i'd be happy to discuss my role in the productions I work on. But i'm just curious who pays the bills with cameras on here. -Wes
  6. WORD Thanks for the revival. This place shaped a lot of our careers... this was my first group of friends I've never met. Lots of prime time memories here

    Tamron 17-50vc Sticky Zoom

    Yeah, i'm with you. I'm not a huge fan of this lens. Ive used the canon 24-70 f2.8 L and that lens is worlds smoother, but I swear that the aperture does not remain constant when zooming. It definitely gets a little darker to my eye. Nothing zooms as smooth as a 70-200 f2.8 L, 100% my favorite lens I've ever zoomed with on a canon
  9. Hey there, I sold this camera to mike and now he's looking to sell it to move on to a different platform. Mike was great to deal with and I can easily vouch that this is a great camera and a great seller. Here are mikes words regarding the hvx200 included is an e-series 16gb p2 card (grey exterior). I have one panasonic battery and one aftermarket battery, as well as the original charger. I also have a 1510 Pelican hard case. And ill even throw in a FREE go pro hero. Works perfectlly, only issue being the bottom left corner of the camera was hit by something when it was owned by the guy before me so the remote control function doesn't work. I've never needed to use that and it has not affected me at all. other then this, this is a fully functioning camera. Asking price, $1350 and you pay shipping. This price has already dropped drastically, I'm not going to just give it away. It's a great camera. WILL SHIP TOMORROW. You can reach me by email. michael.d.allan@hotmail.com Please either respond here, personal message mike (hell post below) or email him at the address listed above. Mike will post some pictures below this. Thanks, -Wes

    Colors And Quality Like This

    On a vx1000, I used to never use the ND filter. I personally believed that was the way to get the sharpest video from that ancient camera. I would always shoot at f5.6 - never higher and I'd always TRY to avoid lower - but what are you gonna do. I compensated with a super high shutter speed at times. This gives the footage a distinctly sharp look, some like it - some don't. I would surmise that this guy probably did something similar. Little boost in the CP's for white balance shift and color level and probably a little contrast added in post along with maybe a little saturation. Obviously these aren't standard practices - just what I used to do when I was shooting with a vx1000 to get the look I wanted.

    The Filming Netjiot

    http://www.amazon.com/CowboyStudio-Shoulder-Support-Camcorder-Camera/dp/B0036NMQ7S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1388962047&sr=8-1&keywords=cowboy+studio+brace I bought one of these and freakin love it. So simple, so cheap. Gives you the sturdy-ness you want while still maintaining mobility and "handheld" ness. This lets you hold the camera like normal with your right hand, lean the support against your chest or even hold it up a little and just rely on the over the shoulder part, and use your left for zoom and focus if needed. I shoot for TV at work and I use this with my ex3 a lot. Great for "run and gun" style shooting - which sounds like exactly what you need.

    The Filming Netjiot

    You could shoot on a 70d and invest in some very long glass? The autofocus on that is supposed to be amazing. For quicker zooms, use the manual zoom ring instead of the rocker? I use an ex3 a lot for work and that's a great camera. But SxS cards aren't going to be any kind of cheap either, nor is the camera. ha.

    Buffalo Moon - Machista (official Video)

    Really cool, Kevin! Inside the bar and the performance shots near the end were my favorite. Great job dude! How'd you shoot those first walking shots? Was it steadi cam or on a dolly cart or something else? -Wes
  14. Great cut man, loved it. Had me smiling more than a few times with these random people I don't know. Lots of beautiful shots in there. Very well put together.
