Questions, Answers, and a curved sensor? planet5D podcast #15

by planetMitchLeave a Comment

We had a lot of fun recording this one… I think we were all punchy because I had massive problems with the setup… I thought I had everything right after last week's show, but something just wasn't right. I spent an hour and a half getting fixed up (I'm not an audio producer thank
goodness!) and Barry was patient enough to work thru the issues with me.

As you can see below, we had plenty to talk about so this is a jam packed hour!
Discussion Notes:

  • How to achieve Film Noir Lighting – Art term – Chiaroscuro
  • Lighting Terms (Cookies, Flags)
  • Slow motion on iPhone 5 or 4 with software update
  • Apple software updates and dumbing down of software.
  • Traveling with Gear (Do you ship, take on plane or pick up local?)
  • Mitch dropped his lens (Cost and repairs)
  • CF/SD Card Issues (Format the card in camera, cards only for each camera, copying files and errors in transferring, Card ratings and the speed of card)
  • Sony's new curved sensor (Also new curved TV sets)
