Video Production and Hardware: April 2009 Archives

The Sony line of tapeless acquisition cameras are becoming more popular everyday. They offer a superior quality image without the hassle of ingestion tapes and all of the pitfalls that tape media offers. The most popular models are the EX-1 and EX-3 cameras, they are affordable and offer an image that is similar to Sony's upper proline cameras in the tens of thousands of dollars. Here at Genius DV we offer training on these two particular models of Sony cameras. We chose these EX-1 and EX-3 for many reasons largely due to field testing and our teachers have extensive knowledge with these cameras in the field! I have received many requests from my students to compile a list of the most popular settings to get the most out of the EX camera. These settings can always be adjusted but this is a great launching pad for successful shooting. I highly recommend setting up a Picture Profile with the settings I give you, this will not only give you a superior picture but will cut down on costly post production color correction. Also, never ever run your camera in Full Auto mode. I know this is very tempting but you will end up with a very amateurish production that is sub-par of your EX's capabilities. There are external settings and internal menu settings, I have listed them both:
Media Recovery Software... I guess you learn something new everyday.  At least that's what I found out today just by reading this article from MacVideo Magazine.  It's advanced Photo Recovery Software by Disk Doctors.  This software actually helps you recover digital photo, audio, and video files even when you thought they were lost or deleted.  The software "has highly advanced algorithms ever designed to support all major graphic, audio and video file formats.  It almost includes all professional RAW photographic file formats."

Disk Doctors Photo Recovery supports both Windows PC and Mac.  You can even download a demo version before you decide. 
Here's a testimonial:

 "Yes it really did work! My drive was "unreadable" by windows or anything else I threw at it. The drive was good, but no data. This software brought back about 95% of a 500GB drive!"

The easy to use program will deep scan any kind of digital storage media and give you a preview of the picture and file you thought was lost. Disk Doctors Digital Media Recovery Software supports smart cards, memory cards, USB drives and even RAW camera files.  This software is the ultimate answer for photo recovery dilemmas.
