I shot with a DSLR and I have been looking into getting an xlr adapter box such as the one made by Beachtek so I can use xlr mics. After thinking, I was wonder what the difference would be if I just bought an xlr to 1/8 (1/8 goes into my dslr) cable as long as my mic is powered? Thats $10 vs $300...am I missing something here?

Some friends and I decided we'd like to try and do a short film. So we made an outline to write, score, film, and edit in 12 hours and this is the outcome! Shot entirely with a hacked GH1 and a 50mm canon fd lens

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

Schizophrenic short film about a girl staying alone in the university dorm at a weekend. She starts to experience some inexplicable and mysterious phenomenons like time travels. There is also rumors about a guy who fell down the dorm stairs and died a few years ago.
This is my first DSLR short film and I'm new to this stuff. If you have any advice let me know, I'm open to constructive criticism.

Hello gentlemen and ladies...

I'm currently writing an article on capturing fluid on-screen movements as seen in action sequences and i'm pouring my brain juices out. Is there any feedback for how it can be done effectively using minimum equipment?

The article i wrote can be found here: http://fadlywychowvski.blogspot.com/2011/08/recording-fluid-action-movement-in-6.html

Perhaps I can include more tips and tricks into the article to edit it further. I did some research, but some is never enough. Gurus out there! help enlighten me please

Hi Guys

I have a Sony Z1(E) but it's not something you have by your side all the time to shoot any unexpected/ interesting opportunities on the hoof. I've been looking for a camcorder that suits my budget to support my Z1 so I can take it on trips/ have in the car, etc.

Hey Everyone!!!

So sorry, if this is already posted somewhere or is under the wrong heading...

Okay so I'm an actor and photographer, but I am directing a music video for the first time. It's a group of 4 girls, one of which is a close friend of mine (kind of a pop feeling song). I don't doubt myabilitiesto execute it well, but some "experience" questions have come up in my mind and the answers are only in experience which I don't have so here I am...
