    4K is so awesome *drool*, but I think I will most likely stick with HD now, since I would have to upgrade the 'puter also…and I am just not "pro" enoughh to justify that expense.  I haven't learned to use what I have now – I have much to learn, even at the HD level.  Thanks again!

    Hey Bill – should have read your post more closely – I see you answered my question with your first video….  =D

    Thank you for your prompt response Bill.  The reason I asked about "pairing" was to find out how the footage of a camcorder would match up with footage from a DSLR / DSLM  (I will eventually be shooting and combining static as well as sports footage.)  Will the footage from your G4 "play nice" with your Sony camcorder (color and aspect ratio)?

    Hey Bill – you always post such great informative posts, how about a challenge:  Would you please publish your "Wishlist" of your most wanted cameras….and in this case, money is not a factor.  Looking forward to your answer!

    Same error for me too – no ipad for me, just a laptop.  I can only access posts from the "shortcut" that displays on the right hand side of this website.   

     

    FYI:  Very sad that the forums changed and the most prolific / most knowledgeable contributors are not to be heard from anymore.  I MISS YOU!

    The general public does not really understand the beauty of Aikido: re-direction (it is not flashy).  The most impressive demonstration I have seen of the essence of aikido involved a sensei of very small stature, fending off attackers from multiple directions.  There were no Hollywood effects, no slow motion camera work.  He was incredibly smooth and agile against men who were taller and heavier.  Before he got "Hollywoodized" Steven Seagal was the most accessible demonstrator of what is possible using Aikido.

     

    Perhaps you could film closeups of the sensei's footwork, his posture, how he shifts his weight during the attack.  Perhaps focus on how he uses his hands: their speed and fluidity.

     

    But mostly – he really needs to give you a better sense of what he expects to see in the final product.

    @ Woody- no pic needed – your description covered it just fine (and BIG thanks for going the extra mile on that).

    Great response Woody – this will help me too in my foray into interviews.  You have suggested a "target" for the interviewee too look at – what do you use for them to look at?  And I might be over-the-top exasperating to ask this, but, could you please post a pic to demonstrate what you mean?

     

    Thanks!

    Cool Birdcat! Hope you will post more “behind the scenes” photos. (Also wish you were located onthe other FL coast – I would love to visit your set and haul cables or “gofer”for you.) Looking forward to the final product!
