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.
Robbie Carman: Hi there, I'm Robbie Carman. Rich Harrington: And I'm Richard Harrington. Robbie: And Rich, this week on DSLR tips, we're going to talk a little about Adapters. Now in my experience when you go out in the field, sometimes you think you have everything, but sure enough situations pop up where you say I need to adapt by audio in somewhere or adapt by video. And if you are not prepared with the correct adapters, that can be a problem. Rich: Yeah, what I generally find is that, there's wealth of things that we have here and I kind of came from a school being slightly paranoid on a shoot. You are there, you are on set, if you don't have what you need then you are going to stop shooting, and you might lose the moment.
So I come from a school of thought that you generally want two of everything, if at all possible. Of course, you know, that would be like Noah's Ark sized proportions. So it's not totally practical of two of everything. But two of every major cable, two of every major adapter, we're going to want to bring that stuff out there. So in this week's episode what we're going to be looking at is all the major things, right? Robbie: Yep, we're going to talk about adapting audio. Audio is one of those things that you never will have to go from you know, Quarter-inch to XLR or to RCA and so on and so forth. So we'll first start talking about that, and then we'll come back and start talking about adapting video, which is equally important, and then we'll wrap up talking about other adaptations that we might need to do such as power adaptations.
Rich: All right, so a lot of things to talk about. When we come right back, we'll jump into the world of audio.
