Some of the time. Otherwise I have a grey card I like to read off of when possible, and lock my exposure to that-

Re: nizo camera help needed

Its always a gamble with Ebay. My good friend decided to enter the S8 world and purchased a minty 801 Macro on ebay for $400. When it came, everything worked fine untill we put film in it and the motor struggled really bad. He ended up sending it to Du-All camera for repair... $300. So in the end, i...

Re: nizo 561macro and ektachrome 100d

The second post is right, The Nizo is a little different than most S8 cameras as to how it adjusts for notched carts. The Knob setting controls the 100/160 reading... sun=100ASA, bulb=160ASA

Re: 100D Test Roll Comments

I watched my new 100D after reviewing some kodachrome from the early 70's and 100D blows it away completely. The Polorizer i used rotates for different color temps based on the scenery. I didn't have any jitter-

Re: 100D Test Roll Comments

I just got 2 E100D rolls back today. This time I used my 814XLS and a 2 stop polorizer, and holy crap it looks good. The colors, density, and sharpness were probably the best I've seen on S8 reversal. I'll post some scans over the weekend.

Re: Thought film was dead?

That's great news. The lab I go to still makes optical prints, but I always get my negs scanned to a CD as well.

Re: Shooting a live music performance with sound

Yeah, having a video camera with audio and video reference come in handy when syncing sound. Look for cues like drum symbols when syncing... comes in handy like a slate. You'll find a lot of shots like close ups of instruments, various shots around the stage ect... don't have to be synced right to l...

Re: Shooting a live music performance with sound

I used to do this a lot with 2 Canon 814XLS's. It worked out pretty well. You can hold lip sync for at least 10 seconds. I would add in a video camera that would make it easier to sync shots and audio. I would actually use an HD cam to mix with 2 S8 angles going for many aesthetic cuts ins.

Re: 16mm Experimental Short

Thanks everyone! It played in the Shorts Corner at Cannes in May, and will be shown in and around the train system in Madrid next month. I think I spent a total of 8 months shooting it. The whole time I was unsure if I could pull it off, but I got pretty close to the look and concept I was going for...

Re: Why negative film?

With reversal, your limited to a certain look. Not much head room... what you get is what you get. With negative, depending on a viariety of ways to expose and process your film, there is a lot you can do in post telecine to create certain looks.

Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

Vegas 10 is coming out on Oct 11th! http://www.sonycreativesoftware.com/vegaspro10

I like that is has a stabilization plug in that also handles rolling shutter issues.

16mm Experimental Short

I did this project while I was off the forum, so not many here have seen it. Pretty much a one take experiment, the hard part was finding out where to begin and where to end. With various conditions, I think I used one roll of each Kodak color neg in regular 16mm with my Bolex Rex4. enjoy- http://ww...

Re: Editing software: any clear front-runner?

Final Cut and Avid have just been more heavily "branded" as the standard, but maybe thats changing? Vegas is on par and even better in some areas. It does really come down to what your compfortable with, what your needs are, and maybe even your system. I've been using Vegas since 4.0, on 8.1 now... ...

Re: 100D HD Test

Yes, i'm using the condensor setup. Like I said, still getting the kinks worked out. I'm also still trying to tune up the new 100D. Going to make some white card shots for WB and more accurate colors, got a new 2 stop polorizer for the Canon 814XLS. And eventually going to try my hand at transferrin...

100D HD Test

I've upgraded my Workprinter setup (and drove Roger crazy) to do HDMI caprutes with my Sony HDR. I'm really liking it, starting to get my techniques dialed in. here's a sample of what I would call my first success in making the jump to HD...
