  1. Hey guys! Quick question, Picked up my camera bag not realizing it wasn'y close up all the way and my camera fell out and hit lens side first(Fisheye not on thank goodness) and now it will only focus when i zoom in to about the middle point from zoomed all the way out and in. Any other zoom point it is blurry, any suggestion what that might be and if i could repair it myself or ship it off to Video Electronics. Thanks for your time guys!
  2. Hi guys, I've recently purchased a VX1000, and a tape got caught in the mechanism. I've managed to cut the ribbon and free the tape, however the tape deck is jammed and won't close. I've recently lost a job and can't afford a repair and was hoping one of you guys would have a soloution to fix it. If anyone has any info on how to fix it or where to buy another tape deck from, that would be dope.
  3. So i film with an hpx 250 not 170 or hvx, but theyre all the same thread size so what ever. I am looking for a fisheye for under 300$ and a tripod thats under 300$ Ive been looking at the opteka hd2 .4x 72mm but its out of stock every where or back ordered I would prefer a fisheye with no vignette, maybe the 16x9? i need some input also i am looking for a fluid head tripod, one thatll work good in cold temps, i film mostly snowbaording, and i would also like to have variable tension knobs. someone help me out im torn ;( thanks -Cal
  4. Sorry I know this question has been asked a lot but what are the best export settings for a film mostly shot with a vx2000 but also has some HD and VHS footage in there aswell? I used to live with another filmer and he used to do all the export settings for me. There isn't much HD about 1 minute all together. The video is 37 mins long and i wanted to upload it to Vimeo and maybe have a couple of DVDS for the shop. Here is the trailer which is also a mix of DV/HD/VHS mix I can't remember what settings were used to export this from final cut 7 and then on to Vimeo. Many Thanks

    Best Hd Setup $1500?¿

    Hey sp, My vx has a broken mic/messed up heads, so ive decided to make the switch to high def. Due to my uncertianty when spending basically all my money, Ive decided to ask you guys for help. Ive been looking around for hmc150's, but what bothers me is the lens options. I obviously cant afford an xtreme, the opteka death looks like crap, and the other 0.4x lens thing isnt that wide. Ive only really ever used actual video cameras, so a dslr isnt an option. Is there any other lens options for the hmc? What are my options here? As always, any help is appriciated. On a side note, im posting this from my phone since sp wont let me log in from my computer. Anyone else having problems with that or is it just my google chrome? Tnx.

    External Monitor Help

    So i recently bought a Cannon T3 and its a bit of a bitch to film with cause the lcd is tucked behind my handle. Ive been looking at cheap ways to get a monitor and found that the cheapest is to buy something like this (http://www.amazon.ca/TFT-LCD-Rearview-Monitor-Screen-Automobile/dp/B00CM3A3DC/ref=cm_cr_pr_sims_t) now if i were to buy that and run this cable (http://shop.gopro.com/accessories/mini-usb-composite-cable/ACMPS-301.html) from the monitor to the camera would the mini usb power the lcd?
  12. I have some footage I shot with my HVX200. It was shot at 480i/60i with the squeeze option on (NO letterbox). So my questions are: 1. What are the correct timeline settings/capture method for this footage. Is it DV NTSC widescreen, or DVCPRO50 NTSC widescreen? Or do you capture it in 4:3 because it is not really widescreen? Read about this somewhere and trying to get this cleared up so I can get the footage imported/exported and back out to where it needs to go. 2. What is going to happen when I mix 720p/60p footage with this? I will have to de-interlace the 480i/60i clips... correct? I am second guessing myself. I feel like I should know all this. Thanks

    Immense Lower Back Pain

  14. Hey, I recently have had the idea of starting my own streetwear/skate clothing label but I haven't got the money for it. I'm not sure how I could make money at the moment because I am at a boarding school, was just wondering if anyone had an idea of something I could do to earn money for the label? Maybe make a skate movie and try to get it sold in local skate shops? Thanks
  15. I was looking at buying a professional video camera at the end of this year. My budget is $1,250 and I still want money left for a fisheye and other needed accessories. So I was wondering if there are any good pro video cameras that suit my budget?
  16. I've been filming for a very long time, and a lot with my vx1000, I had just sent it out about a month ago to video electronics to get it repaired. (Broken VAP, dirty heads, broken viewfinder cable, sketchy tape deck) It was definitely worth the money to repair it, but when I got my vx back i was having the same issues with glitching when i imported footage, its not a visual glitch where theres distortion in the footage or audio glitching, its literally like the my footage is clipping itself into pieces so, the end result when importing is about 50 segments to one clip. Its really annoying and even if i merge the clips into 1 they have a lag to them and skip. I had contacted kerry about it because obviously I'm upset about paying so much money to get a camera back with the same issues, and he had said that it sounded like a software issue and i should hit up the forums to see who could help. So just taking a shot in the dark here, thanks guys ahead of time. - Kyle

  19. ONLY HAPPENS WHEN TAPE IS PLACED IN Recently just bought a Jap vx off Ebay and it's pretty much brand new even has that fresh smell to it haha. But it started making this weird noise when I put tapes in. It didn't happen at first and when it did start to it was really quiet and unnoticeable. Now as you can tell it is very bothersome. Any advise as to what it could be would be a life saver!
  20. I met a guy on here who said he will sell me a great condition MK1 with a VX2_00 for only $550. What do you guys think? Should I trust him?
