Yes, there are plans for the sun to go nova in another 5 billion years and swallow up the Earth, so you might have to quickly go run'n'gun because there is no second take.
Looks like Canon have responded with a very major update to 5D4. They must have had GH5 in mind for a while.http://www.canonrumors.com/crop-factor-change-for-4k-canon-eos-5d-mark-i...
Looks interesting, even gives Planet of the Apes a run for it's money !
So they have not been transferred yet ? That is a critical stage. Identify if the player is good and if you need a TBC in the chain to avoid dropped frames. If you find JVC 9911 and Panasonic 1980 SVHS players in genuinely good serviced condition, then good, but there are others.
Due to VHS and SVHS being a "lowly" format, some people will say it doesn't need a robust uncompressed codec and you can just encode to Mpeg, but I would maybe try for as much signal integrity preservation as you can, then output down to whatever you want. Bottom line - it's up to you, but have a good think beforehand.
Simpler process - there are certain dvd recorders, elite specific models from 2006-2008 (with caveats), which will make decent dvds or encode to hard drive (depending on model). Again, you will need a good serviced machine. You could just pull those into your editing and refine from there. Good luck.
Interesting conversation. I hadn't thought about it before, because a lot of tutorials I see just show a software screen or graphic or something. I get what Josh. R is saying but I think it works. I popped over to Film Riot and clicked on a couple of random vids and saw that guy pretty much in the middle of shot.
Truth is (and I'm guilty of this myself) it's easier to make fun of the kid, but underneath that I do admire him.
Aidin, the quiff could have been fixed in post, but thanks for the vid !
