Up your game NFS, constantly reading grammatical/spelling errors or just bad writing. Yet in truth this is essentially my home page, I normally read daily. I guess it just proves most people will still consume subpar content :/
Gotta second this comment. Zoom H1 has been a staple in my kit for years and always come in handy. Sort of one of those upgrades that didn't really need to happen but it seems like a decent refresh for those who don't already own one.
I love handheld for documentary and event work but agree that most current blockbusters and now television is leaning a bit hard on handheld camera work to give them a "real" feel back since so much CGI is being implemented. And don't get me started on what the Office did and didn't do for comedy/network camera work. Everyone is obsessed (and has been for years) with fake docu-style shooting now, it gets a bit boring. It's almost like handheld if the safe choice now rather than a break from the norm.
This video is amazing, mainly because of the sound recordist who is way to happy with how it sounds. Giving so many nods and approval sounds.
Excedrin & Ibprophen. Nothing worse than a headache on set/location. Eye drops for myself as well as for talent. When I shoot weddings often brides and grooms have a bit too much to drink and their eyes can show that In a bad way.
Without going into super nerdy detail HFS+ is Mac format and will work well with Mac. exFAT is pretty much USB drive format, playing well with PC and Mac. (I believe Microsoft actually owns the patent for it)
I've personally seen no difference in performance while shooting on either format. I use HFS+ when I know I will be handling the footage because I have all Macs. I feel like I get faster transfer speeds when uploading footage and I believe there is a bit less chance of card error.
If you need your cards to be uploaded to a PC, use exFAT. If you're all Mac, use HFS+.
At the end of the day I never really give anyone my cards to upload anyway, I just format an external hard drive into exFAT and dump the footage on that to give whoever needs it. So because I'm all Mac, I'm always formatting them in HFS+
Now that you've got me thinking about this, I'll probably time some identical transfers in HFS+ vs exFAT to see if there really is a speed difference.
Oh and both can handle way bigger files than an SD card can and probably will hold for years to come so don't worry about that!
