How hard would it be to program a 400 foot heigh limit on drones? They operate of GPS, so it seems that this would not only be easy to implement, but also wouldn't seriously limit one's ability to use a drone for decent video and photography. I'd rather have the option to fly a done up to 400 feet than not fly at all. Combine this will a written test for applicants (not a full pilot's license) and the vast majority of users would be happy.
Just saw Birdman, and loved it! I look forward to studying the screenplay; lots of snappy dialog, so it will be a fun read.
Agreed. Monitoring audio is crucial.
I wasn't aware of the Tascam product, but hope they will make it available in the US market. Tascam has been improving preamps in their low-end gear, and the DC-10c could be targeted to professionals.
There are a lot of "preditors" (producers/editors) who shoot AND edit their films. A lot of shooters aren't comfortable with letting someone else edit their work, so I have been wondering how to find editing work, too. I hope others have suggestions and keep this thread going.
The 12-35 lens is my most frequently used lens. Good image quality, relatively fast at f2.8, decent zoom range (albeit short), fairly fast focus, and excellent stabilization (be sure to update the lens firmware). The only flaw with this lens is that it is not constant aperture when zooming. In spite of it being advertised as such, it flickers when zooming. Regardless, I use this lens a LOT.
