Re: PMW200 - reviewing settings recorded at

If you open the clips in Catalyst Browse you should be able to see the metadata which will contain this information. You must have the full original file structure including the XML files for this to work correctly.

Re: SxS adapter for PMW-F5

The only cards you can use in an F5/F55 are SxS or XQD cards with XQD-SxS adapters. Nothing else can be used.

Re: Waveform disappears when selecting Monitor LUT viewfinder ON

Is this with the FS7? Have you upgraded to firmware V3.0?

Re: F5 Recording XAVC S-Log3

Raw is better than S-Log3, but the files will be larger. But recording raw opens up more options as to which codec you can use in the camera. So you could use Meg2 (XDCAM HD) which is an Avid native codec for the edit and then use the raw for the grade.

Re: In EX1R, make two, three or four cup of same clip

Use Content Browser to import the clips in to a single folder. Content Browser will re-join the clips into one single clip.

This is due to the 4GB file size limitation of the FAT format used for the cards.

Re: Back Focus EX1r

Any FB settings are stored in the cameras internal memory, this does not use the lithium cell, so the settings should be remembered regardless. One thing to check... is the front element of the lens secure? Sometimes the front element can become a little loose. See if you can move the front element ...

Re: noise in dark areas and shadows even with the odyssey 7Q

All cameras will have some noise. The FS700 is not noise free, but compared to most cameras it is low noise. Getting your exposure right is very important and minimising the amount of gain used.

Re: PDW-F350 filter unit glass problem

It could be fungus, similar to the fungus that can effect lenses and filters. How old is the camera, the F350 came out in 2006, so they could be 8 years old now. The filter performs several functions, Low-Pass anti-aliase, UV and IR cut, plus color correction. I believe it's made up of a couple of l...
