    • Microphones: The Proximity Effect

      When you transition from vacation videos and birthdays to something a little more serious, your first frustration will be audio. And if you ask the "pros," they are going to recommend fancy super-cardioid DC biased condenser XLR mics with 48V phantom power starting at about $1,500. Too much money and too complex - audio is both much easier to understand and harder to master than you'd think. So make sure your camcorder has a mic jack, check out this video and get ready to take the first step into professional audio for video. It's a thousand mile journey, so bring comfortable shoes! - http://videopia.org

        For the "Make it Interesting" project: http://vimeo.com/forums/topic:4117 Almost unchanged since it first appeared in 1885, the Lyle's Golden Syrup tin is a design classic. The dead lion and the quotation from Judges chapter 14, verse 14 were the idea of Abram Lyle, a Victorian sugar entrepreneur and religious enthusiast. Golden syrup is inverted sugar syrup, made in the process of refining sugar cane juice into sugar. It is widely available in the UK, and is a crucial ingredient in Treacle Sponge, a classic British dessert. It is not so widely available in the US.

          The boys from DMR Bikes (Olly Wilkins,Sam Reynolds, Ray and Blake Samson) came over to the Land of the Dutch. They were invited for the This is Trash Jam in The Hague. A jam with street, park and dirt. The guys arrived on friday, so we ourselfs headed over to the trails early to get the last humps and bumps out of the trail before they came. We also just build a new booter jump to get some good tricks down on. Well I`m happy to say that the guys loved the jump. They were just happy to see that there were some descent trails, cause they thought there were`nt that much trails in Holland. Shorlty after arriving the guys were quickly getting some nice tricks down on the booter jump. Sunday was the day of the Jam. Me and my mate`s headed over to the trails to get everything ready before everybody of the jam came over. All day long people were coming more and more, and it was getting more and more crowded on the trails. It took a little while before all the DMR guys were there, but when they did, it went crazy! Frontflips, flipwhips, double whips, superflips, no handed flips and so on..... Monday was the day of their departure. They still had to get some more pictures for MBUK and wanted to ride the trails a little more. First they helped out with patching up the trails because of all the damage of the Jam. Thanks for that one boys! After that we had a nice session and I shot some footage in 50fps. To bad they had to leave early, but they had to catch the ferry to cross the pond. We kept on sessioning a bit and later on Roy came and pretty much killed it. He finished of with a nothing can to oppo can, and we closed it down right there. All in all, was great having them over and were good times on the berm in the middle!! For the rest just check out the video!!! Hope you enjoy it!

          • Not All ND Filters Created Equal

            A quick field trial to evaluate the low-cost Nature ND vario filter against the expensive Singh-Ray counterpart. No big surprises, but some useful info on what useful purpose each may serve. For more information, go here: http://rilstone-naturephoto.blogspot.com/

              My second test of the Samson Zoom H1 recorder. I handed over my camera to a friend, so pardon the wobble and the brief moment out of focus. I'm still pretty impressed with the H1, but as I say I've got some more testing to do. Special appearance by the star in my soon-to-be shot short film, Bryce. Special thanks to Heidi for shooting me, Bryce for jumping in, and Rocco's Cafe for serving us many, many mimosas before this was shot.

                A sound test moving away from the receptor up to 50 feet, with walls in between and landscape. I think this system speaks for itself!

                  **I uploaded this last night and noticed some audio drift this morning. After verifying that the source was fine, and up uploading to YouTube was fine, I realized it had to be my compression settings. Yep. I was not using Vimeo's recommended audio codec. Hopefully it works now.** I received my Samson H1 unit today and I couldn't wait to get home and test it out. I've never set my gear up to shoot myself, and I kind of just went for it. First time was much better than I expected! Although I needed my dog as a prop lol. I got everything ready, hit record on the camera, then record on the H1, got in place, snapped my finger to create a starting point, and got to business. In the near silence of my bedroom the snap was plenty to synch the audio. I'll synch this way as long as I can, but I don't have any issue using Plural Eyes sometime in the near future too. My camera was on a tripod about five feet away, and the H1 was mounted on a small tripod a couple feet in front of me. I'll be testing differences in distance, as well as outdoor sound, coming up in the next couple of weeks. I have never used another external mic, so I don't have a lot to compare to, but I hope this will be a good piece of equipment for my grab and go kind of ideas. Cheech suddenly thinks he's a star, and refuses to be in any more of my test videos without a Milk Bone. Thanks for watching!
