UNGRADED / ONE HOUR EDIT VERSION! THIS IS A SHOTGUN MIC TEST ... A GRADED ATTEMPT BALANCING BETWEEN VIMEO'S FLASH/HTML5 PLAYER OPTIONS IS HERE:- https://vimeo.com/55710058 DRIFTWOOD HAS NEVER BEEN PAID BY ANYONE, NEVER RECEIVED A DONATION, IS NOT RELATED TO PANY, HASN'T MADE ANY ENDORSEMENTS. MY OPINIONS ARE MINE. A humorous look at some of the new features of the GH3 against the GH2 together with a insight into the raw recording capabilities of the new Panasonic shotgun microphone, the DMW-MS2, all made in a day using the GH3. No lighting (apart from a few +brightness tests for Vimeo in readiness for a grade), OR sound changes (apart from volumes for phone simulation) was used in the production of this mini-epic. We make NO apologies that this was a very hastily put together - scripted in an hour, filmed in two, edited in about the same. Grading is to be done and will replace this version over the next few days... for sure. There's lots of dialect errors & bad acting - of course! (including Jim's ever-changing pronunciation of the word 'sensor' !!) We feel we need to apologise to Italian Americans intensely. :-) All in all, this feature was to give a quick overview of the GH3's new features over the Lumix GH2 camera AND to give the new Panasonic shotgun mic - the DMW-MS2 - a (virtually) unedited workout. For run-and-gun the mic was very good on this shoot, however, fiddling within the GH3 setup menus is advisable. To summarise, its not really a replacement for a pro audio setup but is much better than Pany's earlier offerings. The electret condensor mic's freq response is 80 Hz to 20 kHz, features uni-directional (GUN) and uni-directional (STEREO) characteristics, sensitivity of -35 dB with a s/n ratio of 70 dB. Its a 3.5 mm mini plug weighing 4.7 oz. A wind breaker, camera clip and tripod mount shoe comes as standard. 4 out of 5 for the mic.

      • Nice Shot!

        This is a single take steadicam shot during a photographic workshop at the Elk's Tower in Sacramento. The workshop put on by Mark Behrens and Lookpw titled "Gun's Gut's and Glory" featured 22 photographers and 20 models. This shot actually came together completely unplanned, when most of the photographers and models had gathered into one room. It started out as a "wouldn't it be cool" and turned into an "alright everybody, listen up" in about 30 seconds. This shot stands completely uncut and is a good example of "speed ramping" for maximum effect. It took us about 5 minutes to bring everyone up to speed, place people around the room, and figure out a rough path. The original shot is a little over two minutes long. It's obviously really hard to get 40 people to hold still for that long, so a lot of the sped up sections hide some of the movement. The other sped up and slowed down parts were just to emphasize it's epic awesomeness. Thanks to everyone who made this possible! www.blownapartstudios.com www.lookpw.com Equipment GH13 (hacked GH1) Steadicam jr Lumix 7-14mm Premiere CS5 Colorista II

        • Hyper & Shotgun Indoor Shootout: AT4053b Vs. Rode NT3 AND NTG-2 Vs. NTG-3

          This is my second shootout between the Audio-Technica AT4053b and the Rode NT3. I didn't like the results of the last shootout, so I tried it again in a different room. This time I also engaged the AT4053b's low-cut filter, but didn't hear much (if any) difference in my voice. The more I use it, the more I like the AT4053b. I find it rich and full. BUT WAIT!!! I also threw in a shootout between the Rode NTG-2 and NTG-3 used indoors, though shotguns are designed for outdoors. I also A-B-C-D compared all 4 mics used indoors hoping to show how bad it is to use a shotgun indoors, HOWEVER I found that it wasn't that big an issue in this test.

              • A Trip to the Gun Range with Two Sony FS700 Slow Motion Cameras

                ================================================================================== Please note this was created as a camera TEST for us to learn the FS700 and we filmed with out even reading the manual and having the cameras for less than 24 hours. We learned a lot and I hope you enjoy! There are some overexposed shots in here, trust the zebra! Will try and fix when I do a proper color grading. ================================================================================== When a Sony FS700 shows up after you have been waiting for it on back order what do you do with it in the first 24 Hours? Well you load up your camera and gun gear and head to the shooting range to film slow-mo gun stuff of course! I had to step out from behind the camera on this one to get us some good firearm shots. It was funny to be in front of the camera and calling out shutter speed reminders every time we switched frame rates, directing and making sure the set was safe since the camera guys could only shoot back with the FS700's and no live rounds :) What a blast working with Jason and Derek on this test project. I think we all came away with a lot more knowledge of how to use the FS700 and how to make the slow-mo workflow a reality in the field. This is my first proper video camera since I have just been using the 5D and 7D. A lot of the DSLR knowledge translates directly into using this camera, but there are some learning curves too. Shot with QTY 2 Sony NEX-FS700's Canon 50mm 1.4, 70-200mm 2.8 IS II, 70-200mm 4.0, 24-105mm 4.0 Philip Bloom Pocket Dolly This was shot in PP6 and just had the CineLut with some light grading in Magic Bullet added to it to get a quick version out.

GOOD OR BAD ... IT'S HOW I LEARN TO BE A BETTER FILMMAKER :) ====================================================================================

                  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
