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.
Male 1: In a multi-camera shoot to have a fighting chance later on in post production, you need to make sure that you sync up your cameras, and this can be very easy to do, and the way I usually do it is with a slate, like this guy. This particular slate has a clapper at the top, and you'll notice if I lift it up, I actually have timecode there, in this case this is time, daytime code, and when I clap the slate. There I have a sync point. I don't use a traditional slate. I can also a digital slate like this guy. Here this is a product called DSLR slate, and I can put information like scene, take number, who the camera operator was and so on and so forth.
And on a traditional slate, I can do that, but I actually have to use something a litlte old-fashioned. A dry erase marker. So, these go missing often, so that's kind of why I like the digital slate as well. And in a situation where you don't have either a slate, a traditional slate, or a digital slate, these two things right here, work rather fine, all you need to do is call out the scene information and then say mark. Just like that. And that can act as a sync point, as well.
