  1. 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
  2. Getting Hvx P2 Footy Onto A Mac?

    Connect camera to computer VIA usb, import through final cut, you'll get nice easy solid .mov files to play with.
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. psh get that pee some more suckle, that should be your damned resolution you plebeian
  11. easy for you, impossible for me brah - i'm da sickest. and this is the sickest new years rez i've seen. I'm throwin out my "paraphernalia" and walking away from the devil's lettuce for a while. Not for good, but not at my damn computer desk anymore into late hours of the night. such a classic scenario...
  12. Well..... wait what? No it's bad for the VX1 because the camera has been shooting on those heads since 1993 most of the time. This dvx is probably 15 years newer than whatever VX1 and that's why it can easily still operate as the manufacturer intended. We have "workarounds" to get more and proper usage out of the VX1. These workarounds are not to be confused with how regular cameras operate and how you should operate a regular camera. Skateperception's Misconceptions, you'll come to know them as you learn more about being a camera operator outside of skateboard filming.
  13. Congrats Josiah! I met your lady when I took a road trip down to FL years ago and met up with David Stoessel and Michelle Blades and such. SP has brought a lot of people together throughout the years, none like this I'll bet though!! I gotta do my own lil thanks to the SP community, I work in television now and play with cameras for a job. I developed my love for images and technology A LOT on this website. Learning, watching, trying, failing, buying, selling, all of it. Thanks again SP, cheers 2014.
  14. It won't make any difference on a camera with only 183 hours on it. Guaranteed. Capture footage only once, don't play it back a gazillion times, and never re use tapes or switch brands. You will be FINE. The fisheye is so close the exact same width as a mk1 on a vx1 that it's no difference. Switch from SD to HD fisheye is a change, this is just difference camera. Back in the day there would have been countless replies in this thread telling you to just search instead of asking. It's weird how that stopped happening. I will say this, however, you will learn more about the camera just by using it and not knowing what you're doing a few times and then FIGURING IT OUT, than you will by asking us to tell you how to use it. 100 % guaranteed, using the camera > talking about the camera.
