43 rumors says its a 42MP Pana sensor, both excellent video and photo oriented, still March 2019 release. Heres a WILD thought - NHK is going 8k for the japanese summer olympics broadcasts isnt it? This has HDMI output. I meant gh5 6k is already here. No displays now, but great way to improve 4K post and really get BIG market attention and then be ready for 8k. Comment away... :happy:

Maybe somebody can help me:)
I'm looking for the device to stream from playback monitor to android devices.
I have a team working on table-top shooting, and I'm looking for the decision for everybody on the set to monitor through android phones the signal from camera. Team is about 5 people.
The device I'm looking for I want to connect to Odyssey 7Q to hdmi out and stream to androids.
There is a wi-fi router in studio, but its good to have decision without being bound to router.
Is there any easy way to do it?
No recording or any other feature is needed, the resolution can be not HD (just monitoring, thats all).
I understand, that lots of devices offer much more, but i'm looking for the most budget way.
Teradek vidiu can do it (still, is not covered enough on there site and for me is not clear enough, how the whole system works in real life).
But its $600-700, and i'm trying to get only one small feature ) Looking for the cheaper way)
thanks in advance for any hepl!

Hi guys,

We're pairing an F55 with the Ronin 2 tomorrow, and it's not a combination I've used before. With Reds and Alexa Mini there's specific power cables they've built, but I've been through DJI's literature trying to find some info on the combination with the F55, and had no luck so for.

Does anyone know what you'd need to power the camera through the Ronin 2's battery system? (I'd prefer to avoid the added weight of a battery onboard the camera if possible).
Cheers,
Mark

In a story you have your character on a mission to achieve something. In the first quarter or so you're supposed to get to the part where they need to blow up the death star, or find the Holy Grail, or rescue the princess. It seems like Goodfellas doesn't really have that. It's just about a couple of guys in the mafia over a few decades.

I'm writing a fictional book involving the mafia and I'm finding a problem. I don't really have a specific plan or mission that my characters are on other than make lots of money. I thought about Goodfellas and realized they don't really have something specific either. Yet the story works. All my little writing books about plot and story say I need to come up with a princess to rescue but I really like my Goodfellas style plot.

Any other movies have similar stories without a clear goal? I read John Truby's book on screenwriting and I never realized what the plot of The Godfather is. It's about a son seeking revenge on those who tried to assassinate his father. Never realized that was the actual plot since it takes place over a decade or so. We have the wedding, the horse scene and then we jump into the plot starting with them wanting to get into narcotics which drives the rest of the movie. I never really noticed that before. It seems like it's a just a movie that observes a mafia family for a decade or so.

I thought about bio-pics but they usually give the subject a huge personal burden to overcome such as Walk the Line or Ray.

Any advise on writing a book where it's just "about" some guys in the mob?

So I'm using a MixPre-3 for recording Musical Theatre singer auditions in my low budget studio. I'm mainly a video guy, but I have a (barely) above-average handle on the audio situation. But for the love of me, I can't figure out if I should be using the adjustment knobs for gain (in basic mode) or as faders (in advanced mode). My biggest issue with these recordings is that the kids will sing very very softly... and then BELT TO ALL HOLY HELL. Sometimes THEY SING real soft AND THEN LOUD and then soft just because it's the NATURE of their VOICE. It's quite a challenge to keep up with them. Traditionally I've been riding the gain and adjusting on the fly as I learn the song through multiple takes, and by the end I'm able to follow them pretty accurately while avoiding any spikes. But with my total lack of knowledge and experimentation with faders/advanced mode, I can't help but think I'm doing it wrong.
Can you guys school me on this and tell me how to handle it correctly??

Hi all. We've had discussions before how our field has largely gone down the toilet when the DSLR revolution hit about 10 years ago. Rates plunged, gear got cheaper and so many people trying to do video production now.
It is not fun competing against guys that will work for a $100 a day.
So I've been thinking of areas of work to focus on.

1. Live events.
Multicamera live switched events require more cameras and crew.The average Joe with a camera cannot easily do this.
Some clients want the event shown on screens at the event. Some want it streamed.
How many of you guys do this and feel it is a good avenue?

2. Higher end productions.
Landing these clients takes work. Average Joe cannot do this due to gear and crew needed. It seems that since the market saturated, there is a lot more low and bottom end, while the mid level work took the place of some of the high end work.

3. 3D animation
Years ago if you did this you were in the minority. Today it seems you can farm it out to another country. Plus the built-in 3D capabilities of even our NLE's now even offer some of what is needed when it comes to graphics/titles. Seems the solid modeled client demands are relatively low and most of my clients don't want to pay for it.

4. Aerial
Years ago this was something most people couldn't do. Today lots of people have drones and will do it cheap and even illegally so it's commonplace.

I think getting to the right people, selling yourself and helping them succeed is key, of course. But some areas of work are better than others to do that going forward.
What are your thoughts?
