This weekly course covers the most common questions videographers encounter when shooting and editing with DSLR cameras, from choosing a frame size and frame rate to understanding moiré. Authors Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman will also help you understand the impacts of compression and the difference between cropped (or micro 4/3rds) and full-sized sensors in cameras, and much more. This continual FAQ guide is a handy way to find the answers to the questions that plague you the most.
Rich Harrington: So, we're out in the field. Robbie Carman: Yep. Rich Harrington: This particular monitor is battery operated, which is good because, I don't see any electrical outlets. Robbie Carman: Water won't work? Rich Harrington: No. We could do a hydroelectric. Robbie Carman: Yeah, maybe. Rich Harrington: But we have an HDMI cable. Robbie Carman: Yep. Rich Harrington: Really standard connection option. So this monitor just has an HDMI in the back. Robbie Carman: Yep. Rich Harrington: Says HDMI in. Robbie Carman: I'm going to hand this over to Kevin. We'll plug it in up to his monitor up there. Rich Harrington: Yeah, and Kevin is using a Zacuto Z-finder. Which has a loop out. So he can actually have his own monitor with additional controls. And then as the director and the second director, we can both.
Robbie Carman: Assistant. Rich Harrington: Both have our monitor. You just say it's fun. So we're going to swing this back around. And we've got the solid connection. And we actually are seeing a loop through of what he's getting. So the big thing is, just make sure you have enough throw. Like, this HDMI cable is not the longest cable on the market. Robbie Carman: Right. Rich Harrington: They make extenders too, right? Robbie Carman: They do, and if you, maybe sometimes need a powered HDMI cable, if you're going to go over an extended distance, just like anything else, we've said this a million times, Rich. Test it before you get out here, because the worst thing that could happen to you is, you go, oh, that doesn't work.
So, like anything else, have some backups, and that kind of stuff. Rich Harrington: Yeah, and a lot of times what I'll do is, I'll just keep a coupler that lets me join two HDMI cables together to get further reach. So everything's connected, and we can start to take a look at some of the more specific settings in the monitor.
