  • I agree with all you say, but for the OP, who may not be just in challenging lighting conditions, but also environmental ones, there is something to be said for easily whipping out a small, ...
  • Since nothing is mentioned about shooting stills, I'd suggest OP take a look at the advantages of a small 4K camcorder like the Sony Z90 or Canon XF405. I'd pack my Sony Z90 for this assignment ...
  • Depending on your handheld shooting needs, I'd seriously consider a 3-axis motorized gimbal. The weight of your camera/lens combo will narrow down the choices. And the choices these days are ...
  • Replied in New to video
    I get less scrutiny with my little camcorder that I do with my iPhone on a gimbal, but I'm good at looking like some rando tourist making movies to bore the family back home. With my iPhone on a ...
  • Replied in New to video
    I have 3 main cameras that I shoot with including an iPhone with Filmic Pro and a Zhiyun Smooth 4 gimbal. Contrary to what you might expect, or maybe exactly what you'd expect, the iPhone is the ...
  • The camera sensor Bayer filter's pattern is 50% green, 25% blue, and 25% red. I'm told this is because the human eye is more sensitive to green and this also means that there is more green data in ...
  • NLE = Non Linear Editor = video editing program Most keyers work by removing a color. If that color is white, it would remove anything that is white such as teeth, white clothing, etc. Green is ...
  • Yes, it's called keying or pulling a key and is typically shot on a green or blue background. Most NLEs have keying capabilities. When there is no suitable background for doing it automatically, ...
  • An object dropped from a height of 2 feet will attain a speed of about 132 in/sec. when landing. With a shutter speed of 1/640, the chile will fall about 1/5 of an inch during the frame. Not good ...
  • I forgot to turn off electronic VR in "Movie" mode on a shot where the Z6 was locked down. The subject was on a motorized turntable that rotates precisely, but I was seeing some slight jerky ...
  • Yes, I shoot nothing but video/timelapse/stop motion on a Z6. I do have a great smallRig cage that I have only used in the field when the camera is locked down on a tripod (timelapse/stop motion ...
  • Watch this: https://youtu.be/HamkDcFqlAo
  • All fair and accurate observations. But I've been a Nikon customer since 1973 and I've got a pretty good sense about how they do things. And things seem different these days. I've marked my ...
  • Nikon has been full of surprises lately. When they recently announced RAW 4K video for the Z series, I got the strong impression they have a forceful attack underway for the pro video market, ...
  • The story may reveal itself only after reviewing all the moments that have been serendipitously captured. I can't count the number of times I have been cutting together one story only to discover ...
  • Replied in Z6 filming....

  • Thank you for the helpful information. On a related note, I wonder whether XLR input on the AtomX port might be available in the future for the Ninja V.
  • Audio-Technica AT897 into a Sony PXW-Z90. In my typical tabletop scenario, the microphone would 3-4' away from the Ninja V5.
  • Thank you for your help. I'm doing mostly tabletop motion control with multiple cameras and microphones. Long-story-short: no matter how I position the microphones it is likely the Ninja V will be ...
  • Created discussion thread Atomos Ninja V - Fan noise?
    I had every intention of buying an Atomos Ninja V for use with my Nikon Z6 until I read reviews complaining about the fan noise. I use off-camera shotgun mics, but typically shoot in close ...
