wtf did I just read..... it was so incoherent I am still not sure
I find it a bit of a problem using the custom modes (sony alpha), although to be fair I only tried it a couple of times and then avoided so perhaps I was doing something wrong. Whilst shooting weddings, I'll set up for 25fps and 120fps, but as the day unfolds and I'll switch between different appertures and iso's for the right exposure in a particular scene - I'll switch to a saved setting and find I have to set the exposure all over again, quicker just to have changed the FPS only.
being able to use their capsules to open up the usability is a big plus, having 1, small and portable device that can be used as an on belt lav, on camera shotgun or XLR inputs for external devices, all for under £300 is sounds pretty good to me. If you can offer an alternative that gives me all of that (my personal requirements) then I am all ears. thanks
Can someone please explain this section in more detail :
"Zoom added a tone generator for calibrating audio levels on a camera without the need for an attenuation cable. "
being relatively new to audio, I'd like to understand what the attenuation cable actually and how the tone generator is used in its place.
I love Inarritu's work, but if I break it down and look at it, I find the long takes have me often sit there gasp wide open, in awe of how did he manage to pull that off. Which is great, but maybe it distracts from the telling of the story and pulls me out into thinking about 'how' the story was filmed and I guess on some level that's a negative. Whereas something like the fight scene in Old Boy, I was able to enjoy that and feel the moment without thinking about the logistics of how insane that fight was.
