The Camera

Post  Admin on Thu Jun 19, 2008 8:25 am

I thought you might be interested in the camera which is being used for the shoot:

Shelly says:
"Its a Panasonic HVX202 although in the states its HVX200. It retails
for about $7000 (less in the US). Its a really great camera. There is
a new one coming out that is similar but without the tape deck (only
card) that will be about $1000 cheaper."

The camera uses a cartridge to record on, not a tape or disc...
the cartridge is full of SD cards, though I forget how many.

After shooting, they dump the video to a laptops hard drive for storage.

The name of the doco right now, as this will probably change,
is "CyberStars" and it's by December Films.

Hi Wolfie
the camera uses memory cards (although can also record to tape - but not in high def)
we are using a 2x16GB memory cards - but if I had the $$ I would be using 32GB cards
its basically sucking 1GB/minute in high def
cheers

Thanks Mixin, I don't always take details in straight away, when I get a new thing, I'll generally play around with it and then read the manual when i get stuck, takes a while to sink in.

I didn't realise the SD cards held so much now, so my understanding was that it had loads of 2GB cards in it, and it would need loads. Smile

At least they're not floppies, wouldn't that be a nightmare. Smile
