    SDI, Triax, Fiber - Oh My

    SDI is fine if the runs aren't too long and the cables are high quality. In many of the live shows I've worked, they also expect to have video return - so you can see what the current live shot is...

    None of the 7" on board monitors I've seen pass muster for critical color/contrast. FWIW, I think they are engineered with other priorities at the forefront. IAC, unless you have a proper hood,...

    Hate noisy monitors. You can put everything but the monitor/keyboard/mouse/control surface/etc in another room - but if the devices that have to be nearby are whiny, you're boned.

    Thanx Jeffery and Rand for the notes on LED dimming zones. It's particularly interesting since the XDR got dinged for haloing artifacts in dark surrounds - something easily seen in the Flanders A/B...

    I think you have already found the simple answer. There are plenty of corollary issues starting with compression ratios, but a single spinner is weak sauce for playing back R3Ds - either type....

    That's a valid point. That said, since the D-ILA tech offers such deep blacks, the ratio is pretty close. To actually see that ratio, you need a "bat cave" to kill the ambient and reflected light -...

    One of the limitations of perusing various Komodo footage examples is not knowing the creative intent. IMHO, the ideal camera is one that can achieve a wide variety of looks without the image...

    +1 on more options to dial in the look of the OLED EVF. For starters, the ideal setting might be impacted by ambient light levels, individual variations in visual properties, etc.

    Note to Rand on Clifford's "mean green". Hard to imagine creating an image that green unless you wanted it that way or the tint got pegged by accident. Even when the green is graded back, it still...

    Since you want to travel with only 3 lenses, the 100mm macro is the obvious choice for versatility.

    Curved shiny surfaces can reflect virtually everything around, including camera/lights/etc. Suggest you wear black and have a black drape for camera and sticks when possible. I'd also suggest large...

    Gemini excepted

    Whatever ISO you set during capture will impact what you see on the monitor and what it looks like when you open the file in post. It has zero direct impact on actual captured values, but, if you use...
