Re: Club Forum Hosting

Firstly, I must say I agree with Chris - to a large extent. We have one and it is rarely used for precisely the reasons Chris has stated: basically better forums already exist. I'm a frequent poster and a mod on another forum which almost perfectly matches my own needs. The club forum is (almost) su...

Re: COPY BARRING

Thanks for reporting your findings, Lee. I think you've missed the most important test though. In practice, people will be making a few copies only and almost certainly will not be using pro equipment. What is the result if you place your scratched "master" in a standard PC and try to copy it? That ...

Re: Club Showreel Required for Sept 9th

Many thanks to both Fraught and Roy for your kind offers (and in Fraught's case the potential of reducing Staines membership by causing severe heart problems among some members!). However, i'm really after a club reel - something that contains films made by a number of different people. Hope you und...

Re: H2 ZOOM DIGITAL RECORDER

Roy, The sync issue really isn't an issue. It's very easily dealt with. The Zoom is far more convenient than the mini-disc. I'm not even sure you can transfer mini-disc output digitally to PC (minidic uses ATRAC, not wav or mp3) so you have to use the analoge output to the analogue input of your PC'...

Roy, On eBay several vendors are selling replacement batteries for the MZ-R35 for under a tenner.

Club Showreel Required for Sept 9th

Does anyone have a recent Club Showreel I can show to our members on September 9th. We have a couple of evenings a year where we like to sit back and enjoy films from another club and I realise I haven't filled this date yet. I'm asking on here as it's good to make contact with clubs we don't often ...

Re: New laptops-no firewire- how to transfer HDV footage?

Tim Black Magic produce some very good products, I have just looked at the cost which from Creative Video is £135 so it is not just an adaptor lead Indeed (I have the Intensity Pro internal card) I was just posting this as a possible solution as there is justified concensus here that a firewire to ...

Re: The camera that changed the world

We appear to have come full circle as eyebrows are raised at a hint of that roving and wobbly camera, whether the content is relevant or not. Was all this pioneering work in vain or does someone have to break the mould again? There's a certain amount of irony in that the wobbly hand-held look is no...

Re: H2 ZOOM DIGITAL RECORDER

I have the H" but found that hen I connected my Sen MHK300 that it introduces hiss whereas the mikes on the H2 are silent- far better! I find the same when connecting my Sen ME66! However, at least in my case, the hiss is very specific and easily removed using a noise reduction tool in an audio edi...

Re: old film effect premiere pro cs3 or cs4

I don't claim to be any expert on this and I don't claim the example I've posted is perfect, but I spent quite a bit of time doing this last year and my experiences may save you some time. I can't help you with specifics, but I can give you some general advice which I discovered when doing the post ...

Re: COPY BARRING

There are copy protection solutions, for example: http://www.fortiumtech.com/patronus_dvd-anti-rip-copy-protection.aspx Whilst no solution is going to totally prevent duplication, this sort of solution is likely to put off the average user once they've tried a few DVD copying programs. What was the ...

Re: H2 ZOOM DIGITAL RECORDER

There's even a high and low mic sensitivity switch, so you can therefore have any level you like with whatever mic you like. Actually it's even better than that, Tom. There's a mid setting as well :lol: Everything does have it's limits though. Even on the low setting it can't quite cope with church...

Re: H2 ZOOM DIGITAL RECORDER

Arthur, I rarely bother with the fiddly folder system on the H2. I simply remove the card, copy everything to my computer, delete it from the card and then do my file management on the PC for that very reason. I know some people don't like removing the card because of the flimsy door/flap on the H2 ...
