News Shooter | Newsshooter hack: Make your own Sony a7S control grip with start/stop and servo zoom

News Shooter | Newsshooter hack: Make your own Sony a7S control grip with start/stop and servo zoom | HDSLR | Scoop.it

If there is one common complaint from Sony a7S owners, it is the placement of the start/stop trigger on the side of the camera. It is about as inconvenient a location as you could possibly think of. Why you can’t just assign video triggering to the shutter button is beyond me.

Film’s Not Dead Yet: Four Reasons Why

Film’s Not Dead Yet: Four Reasons Why | HDSLR | Scoop.it

The demise of 35mm film has been so widely reported by now that it's easy to believe film has been completely supplanted by digital cameras and projectors. But that's not quite true. News broke last week that 35mm negative stock had a new lease on life, as a coalition of Hollywood studios made a financial commitment to keep it alive for a few more years, and there are even places where you can still see a movie projected in 35mm, if you know where to look. We don't want to overstate the case — film really is on the ropes in a digital era. But here are some reasons filmmakers and film fans alike still have a shot at making the most of the last days of film.

Handheld vocal microphones: a trend towards condenser electret? | HDSLR | Scoop.it
With new handheld vocal microphones I am currently testing for reviews, there is a new trend toward condenser electret, which challenges the long established thinking. In traditional ENG (Electronic News Gathering), for decades there has been a preference for dynamic handheld interview mics. One of the reasons for that is because dynamics are generally much more durable. However, several factors are changing, so we must have an open mind when evaluating.
