Thank you for this feed back. It raises, for me, some new questions. What kind/brand/product No. of parametric equalizer should I shop for. I have no idea? Do not even know where to start? How do you plug it into your system, computer? I need some more basic information. Smae questions for a “notch fliter”? What is it? where do you buy them?
I am in the market for a new Lavalier system too with more than one mic hook up.
I purchased an inexpensive unit on Ebay for a shoot and it worked just fine EXCEPT if you had any flourescent lights on over head! Then you got a terrible hum on the audio track. I learned a tough lesson, check your audo track before you shoot a scene. I had to do the shoot over again because I did not test before I started filming.
It is my understanding that the UHF systems are not as sensitve to flourecent hum. There are a number of different UHF systems for sale on EBay but I have not been able to find any reviews except on Amazon.com
Hello, I did end up re-shooting the 2 parts of the video with the over head lights off. It was a pain because I had to set up a lot more lights. Question is, I am using Compact Flourescents in my light stands? So why are they not creating any noise? Also, Anyone know of a full spectrum screw in light bulb in the 500W range I could use in my fill lights? I was using just regular spots from Lowes, because it was all I had yesterday when I had time to do the shoot again.
Thanks for these leads… I am going to start looking into this and will post back what I find. We are starting a brand new video production very soon and it would be really great to test the waters with this new title.
Is there any chance you have a part number for that RCA to AV cable? It is shown in my manual but no indication as to whether it is an accessory? I bought my camera on EBay, so I am not sure whether I recieve everything that came with the camera new?
OK, Thanks for the reply. I will either try and find that cable if I received it when I bought the camera, or try and buy one, new. What LCD monitor did you purchase, if you do mind me asking? And are you happy with it?
Thanks for this information. I was not aware of the CreateSpace on Amazon, but it does not seem to be a “great” deal for the Video Owner, like me. I may have missed it, but nowhere do I see that the DVDs are encrypted so people cannot just whack copies of your work and sell them for nothing?
Right now we are using a local duplication company who is able to do good encryption but, of course it adds to our over all cost.Since our DVDs are not “movies” people would watch for intertainment we do not go to the trouble of expensive packaging. Just plain envelopes with full color labels. No one is going to place our educational material DVDs on their bookcase for all their friends to ohh and ahh over.
My understanding from reading Amazon.com is that you have to have a UPC to sell your self produced DVDs. No big problem. Lots of firms sell UPSs on line. We ahve been warned to get a gaurantee that they are Amazon.com approved UPS before you buy them, though. Next, if you made your DVD and are not just distributing a hollywood film, you must create a “New Product” page with the UPS and your standard Amazon white background pictures. Only “Professional” Pro Merchant Subscribers can do this. Not the Individual, Sell my stuff subscribers. This is what cost you $39.99 per month.
Ah, but wait! There is more… Amazon gets 15%”Referral Fee”of your sales and $0.80 “Variable Closing Fee” per DVD sold! So you are looking at about the exact cost for selling through Amazon.com that is costs us to sell on EBay. But we were hoping for a larger audience on Amazon.com .
OK, Thanks CraftersOfLight and EarlC. I still do not know whether this “older” Sony camera requires a Blue Screen (older process?) or Green Screen for filming (is it called fiming any more? I use to shoot “real film” inmy Bolex wind up camera! That was great! )
But I will get some paint samples and give it a try. The article had the CMYK that I needed. Hope to hear from anyone else out there…
