24 hr short in 1 minute 50 seconds

Still annoyed at color differences from hdmi out to .mov to vimeo .mp4 to playback with "Standard" setting. It doesn't matter how much calibration is used. Every monitor looks different.

Meaning, this looks a bit less saturated than the way it was graded to look on the "calibrated" monitor. At least when played back in either the "Standard" or the "Movie" settings on an older Dell monitor.

Not that anybody cares...

After an afternoon looking at photo exhibits, this might be the best photo I took during a clearing afternoon.

Early spring on a walk-around in town. The red brick architecture from that day is too easy.

a video review

Since I was renting the camera - the Sony a7s that is - I figured I might as well record my thoughts on how well it worked with the Steadicam Pilot.

Buck Mountain Song

A little ditty Kathryn Caine wrote and performed with Sam Bush. My camera was there to see them.

Note to self: use more than one camera for a multicam shoot next time.

a brief explanation

Here's a rough drawing that I came up with to explain the difference between Full Frame still photographs and motion picture images, which are after all a succession of still photographs.

NTS - dims in mm

The difference originates from the direction that film travels through the camera's film gate.

There are complications, naturally. And there are many, many aspect ratios, as can be seen here and here. But this directional orientation explains the inherited size difference between (35mm) stills and motion photography.
