Just wanted to get the word out there that, in addition to places like the Videomaker forums, I started a Facebook page called A/V Sales, with the purpose of buying, selling, and trading audiovisual equipment.
As we all know, it is hard to find good used equipment online, and even harder to sell it without getting ripped off. I was hoping maybe we could change that with something like this.
Go join the page. The more people the better. Right now there are only a few dozen on there and not much trading, but the more people who join, the more that will change.

Win a GoPro Hero 3 Camera Black Edition

OneRiver Media has put together a really spectacular head to head video comparing Blackmagic's Cinema Camera and the 5D Mark III. As you can see, the results really speak for themselves. Even though the two cameras are priced very similarly, the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and the Canon 5D Mark III are in an entirely different class from one another.
This doesn't just apply to interviews, but it's the best way to describe it. In terms of using microphones for both camera's, whats the best way to film and edit two people talking with different shots? Picture a 20/20 interview.
I'm new here and this is my first time on the forums, so hey everyone!
I'm a complete beginner in the video world so please bare with me if this has been asked before.
I am wanting to learn how to connect multiple professional camera's (possibly 4) to a computer (macbook pro) for live online broadcasting purposes.
What will be the ultimate impact on camcorders with thepopularity of smart phones.Better audio and video doesn't seem to be enough against the convenience of these devices. There are a couple accessory's on the market that would make the handhelds more user friendly which could have an impacton theirease of use, most notably the Camcist Aiming Device. Does the handheld industry need a boost or is the writing on the wall. Your thoughts?
Whether you're using a Canon, Nikon, Pentax or other type of HDSLR camera, the big issue is keeping that bad-boy in focus. Yes, you can spend a couple of metric tons worth of cash on focusing gear but whether you do or don't keeping good focus without auto settings must be dealt with. Here's a vid from Stillmotion giving some good basic tips for keeping focus with the Canon line of cameras and a few items for monitoring your image during shooting. These lessons apply to whatever camera line you're using so take notes... there'll be a quiz!
It's that time of year again and the folks at Zacuto have pulled out all the stops this time! Now they've added the top digital video formats used by the pros for making cinematic films to the test. So for those of you who wanted to know how the RED and other top-flight cameras stacked up against 35mm film, you'll get your wish. Also still in the pool of cameras are the Canon and Nikon HDSLRs for those of you thinking about making your next film with either brand. There's some pretty eye-opening stuff and you'll be surprised at how the different cameras stack up against each other.
I have the opportunity for major input to the
purchase of cameras for live streaming of hockey games. I am looking for
recommendations of a good camera.
