    Tapeless VX1000 recording

    Whats up guys, i was wondering if someone has tried using the vx without tapes... like, ive seen this guy on youtube who uses a cf card recorder through firewire and manages to record without using tapes and with no loss of quality... im really interested in doing the same thing, i really like tapes but what i dont like is the problems i usually get from the heads.. think about it, you can get rid of glitches and have a more reliable vx, the problem is cf card recorders are discontinued and the ones ive seen on amazon are around 500 bucks, i dont know if its worth it, but maybe getting a used one for less will do, another thing that came to my mind is, and what about a composite recorder (which are like 60 bucks) and powering the recorder through an external usb charger? Its a lot of stuff, but you can manage to attach it to a belt or something i guess.. do you guys know if there is a difference in quality from recording firewire vs composite rca? Thanks!

    Tapeless VX1000 recording

    Oh, sorry, my bad, the device comes with a mounting bracket, it sits on the handle hotshoe, you can do everything without a problem, i was afraid it would be kinda uncomfortable, but nah, if you want to use a light maybe you can attach the device to a belt or something like that, or use the light handheld hahaha, its not a problem for me because i dont usually film at night, but i would just carry the light in my hand i guess...

    Tapeless VX1000 recording

    Its super easy, i can show you, if not, there is someone using a similar device, with the exact same procedure that he uploded on to youtube, called, tapeless vx1000 or something like that, well, so ive been using the device for a couple of days, and for now, so far so good, yes, i use AVI because im on windows, and thats the default file type that the mrc1k uses, this is another clip that i just made, entirely using the device... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBW9XCDNbP8

    Tapeless VX1000 recording

    I thought the device was going to make it super heavy and unbalanced, but its actually really comfortable, at least for me, that im used to the eazy handle v2 with the cam plus the mic, cant believe im filming with my now digital vx haha, when i knew i had to get new heads, fix drum and eject mechanism, i immediately started to look for these kind of alternative which turned out to be super good, its funny this device exists since like 2005, i always dreamt of having something like this haha

    Tapeless VX1000 recording

    well so my mrc1k arrived, i used it for a couple of hours, and it works perfect, quality is super good, no dropped frames, no glitches, long battery life, drag and drop files on to my pc, i have nothing to complain about it so far... ill leave you this random clip that i just filmed with the device note: this is a clip that has been compressed by Premiere AND Youtube, raw .avi clips are CRISP https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB51SJ-0aA4

    Tapeless VX1000 recording

    idk if its more grainy or not, could be, weird though, because its just like recording with adobe premiere capture, but portable, i dont see any difference between footy from tape than firewire recorded, i will let you know once i get the device in about 2 weeks, it comes with a mounting bracket, its small, smaller than a led light, and lighter, but yeah, thats the only thing that is kind of a bummer for me

    How To 4:3 Hd?

    Hi guys, i know that some one posted a similar topic, but they actually didnt say how, there is this filmer named James Cruickshank, who films for grey skate mag, that films with apparently a full frame dslr with the canon 8-15 fish, and crops it 4:3 HD, i guess he crops it in post, but i cant figure out if its fake vig or if its real, i personally asked him but he didnt answer, so i guess ill ask u guys, ive got my 8-15 on its way so thats why i didnt try it myself, but, im so hyped that i cant even wait lol, here is an example...

    Which Handle?

    Hey so im getting a 6d apparently, and i want to get rid of my opteka x grip and dive into something more professional, i referred to the ''handle hungry'' topic but links are down or its just messy... I love the eazy handle v2, but its like 230 bucks, and my budget is around 100-150... I want something like the eazyhandle style if you know what i mean

    Best Dslr? Dslr Vs Hd Camcorder

    if you guys notice, the guy who started this topic who's name is cruickshank, i think he is James Cruickshank, which now filmed the 4:3 grey skate mag videos... its funny to see him two years ago asking this, and now watching his vids which are actually really good

    The D-slr Netjiot.

    whatt??? I recently ordered the v2, and then received an email from them saying something like ''hey, thanks for your purchase, your among the last of buying the v2, hope it serves you well'' and i was like, oh ok, maybe they are releasing the v3.... but now i go into their website and it doesnt appear anymore...

    Which Long Lens?

    hey man, you know we are both miguel fans lol, i just messaged him a few months back, he told me he uses a 6d with the 24-105 in his videos, and the 8-15 fish... he just got the a7sii body 3 weeks ago, but those videos, like, search the horizon, bunkers down, and sucius hd were filmed with 24-105 and 6d... that lens has IS and constant aperture, i just ordered my 6d with that lens as a bundle, cant wait

    What Did You Do To/ Get For Your Camera Today?

    Canon 6D + Rode Videomic PRO + Eazyhandle V2 + 24-105 f4 And im saving up for the Canon 8-15 fish right now, so hyped
  16. tomicardenas

    Which Handle?

    yeah, you are right, but its true that the go has a lot background noise, and not that ''bass'' sound, im thinking of maybe spending about 60 bucks more and buy a PRO used... Because i know it is worth it, and it will be probably my mike forever haha ps: i already ordered my 6d with the 24-105, eazy handle v2, and now ill order the pro used, cant wait for stuff to arrive, so hyped, but now i just need to sell some stuff, and save so i can get the canon 8-15 fish asap
  17. tomicardenas

    Which Handle?

    i dont have $$ for the PRO, so, should i go for the takstar or the GO?
  18. tomicardenas

    Which Handle?

    the takstar sgc 598 is a 40 dollar mic that is really good actually for its price, i just sold mine so i could save for my 6d, there are lot of comparisons between the takstar and the videomic PRO, but there is none versus the GO... But i think i might go for the GO, lol
  19. tomicardenas

    Which Handle?

    yeah its just for skateboarding, should i go for the rode GO or the takstar 598?
  20. tomicardenas

    Which Handle?

    I have seen the SE but i think ill ask for some extra cash and get the v2, it seems like is really worth it hmmm, and quick question, does someone have the rode videomic GO? Is it worth it? Cuz videomic pro seems kinda expensive

    Which Camera Should I Go For?

    Hey guys, so im actually selling my t3i setup, and im aiming for a full frame with the canon 8-15mm fish, and the 24-105 lens, i was thinking of getting the 6d, orrrr the 5d mk2, which one do you think i should get? and why? thanks
  22. tomicardenas

    Which Camera Should I Go For?

    hmmm, i dont really need more than 720/60p, but yeah, i want the 60 frames, so you leave me thinking bout the 6d vs the a7s edit: nevermind, i just saw the a7s price tag and its too high for me, i was looking for something like 1000-1200, so... should i get the 6d? I know that search the horizon from habitat, and bunkers down from aworkshop has been filmed with the 6d and it looks really good actually

    Miguel Valle Color Correction?

    Hi, i know ive posted something similar to this, but its killing me, i just cant get my color grading to look even similar to what i like, does anyone have any recommendation on which settings i should adjust to kinda achieve this look right here? Ill post this video as an example, but any Miguel Valle video will look similar... I just know that he uses Filmconvert, which i have installed... Any tip? Thanks
