As digital technology moves forward a nagging question remains: which is better - tape or tapeless? In this month's feature Weighing in on the Tapeless World, we take a look at the pros and cons of both tapeless and tape-based productions. We also continue our four-part series on How to Make a Documentary with Part 3 - Shooting and Editing.
If you're looking for tips for better audio gathering, great video production, or just trying to get a grasp on the 180-degree rule, be sure to check out this month's columns. Also this month, we review the Panasonic HDC-TM700 HD Camcorder, LaCie 4Big Quadra Hard Drive, the Blue "Snowball" USB 5:1 Microphone, three software plug-ins, and Green Mountain Video's tommy-Track.
