      They give around 25 minutes of battery life at 100% Brightness - which is surprisingly bright, but isn't much time on a video shoot. So typically I rig them with a power bank and haven't run out of juice yet. You can always USB power them of mains …

      Yeah - I like the Lume cubes. Best use for them is as additional fill-flash units - they will work off an optical trigger. Although can be a bit flakey. You couldn't use them on people the way I have them mounted on the cage here - squint city - …

      I loves me some OBS - I even donated. The trouble with Bluetooth monitoring is the lag. If you can deal with that then they would look more pro. Why not some studio monitor speakers? They shouldn't fold back if they are far enough from the mic …

      Hellrig II I bought a Smallrig cage for the Z6. Shooting some real estate on Sunday. This will work. I wish the damn 70-200 f/2.8 would &#$&^*$#%ing get here though. Grrrrr.

      Nice. Different functionality, but I use 'Simon Says' plug-in for transcribing sub-titles - Premiere or FCP. Upload - cut - paste - format - edit. Most of my clients want subs for playing on Farcebook. Saves so much fiddle.

      > sometimes even a crappy image is better than no image. I'm not being crusty, but I don't subscribe to that. It's a difference between Pros and Amateurs. Publication standards. My point is the results in Photography are generally commensurate …

      If you can't be bothered taking the camera out of a bag or pocket - or taking your gloves off - is that photo really worth taking anyway? 👹 I also agree there are tons of good options and I'm not really pushing this unit (It's a Mk1) - only that I …

      Cool - I should have known you'd be across LUTs. The trick I learned the hard way is to install the .cube file on the Ninja V - apply it and view and adjust camera settings for/by the LUT - not the camera display.

      If you right click on the YT video and select 'Stats for Nerds' it shows what Codec it's being deployed with. At 1080 it uses AVC1

      I've posted a few times in this thread and then deleted - because I learned some more things about ProRes recording over the course of the day. Here's some footage in my courtyard recorded in 10 Bit 4K ProRes 422 and rendered with that same …

      Yeah - it all depends on what your target res is going to be. I'm making Social Media content that will probably be deployed and viewed at 720 at best. So even 4K is mostly overkill, but my iMac deals with crunching Prores files just …

      BTW - I'm using these WD SSDs - they are a fraction of the cost of the Angelfire's or Sony. And work well. You need to buy a few caddy enclosures too, (you get one with the recorder) but no issues at all with the cheaper drives. The genuine USB-C …

      Yah - the trick to balancing the Gimbal quickly is to have only have the camera mounted on the motors. Even the Rode Go in the hot shoe or leaving the lens cap on messes with the dynamic. As for trying to balance a phone on top for the live …

      For making Art a Lifestyle - or vice versa - and getting other people to fabricate it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Roth Jeff Koons and all the other 'facilitators' of art owe him a debt.
