Was recently hired at a job with no knowledge of cameras, and somehow I've turned into a 'DP' still with no knowledge of cameras.
They gave me a Canon 5D Mark III to use and I've been shooting with it for 2 weeks but still have no idea really! (Also gave me a panasonic, will post in that forum too!
My main question is, I have all these wireless mics and transmitter, yet the camera only has 1 mic slot. What are my options to ask the company to buy so I can hook up say 3-4 mics at the same time? (also have same question for the Panasonic AC160)
Also, trying to put these files on a Quantel Edit server has been a nightmare. I originally shot in 1080 24 but that took hours to upload a 3 min piece of footage. So I then shot in 720 x 60 but it still does'nt work well.
So another question is, does anyone have any idea how to compress these files w/o losing quality? Final cut pro tricks?
