Wow, were did Tuesday go?

COW Blogs : gary adcock's Blog : Wow, were did Tuesday go?
This has been one crazy show, I have counted more that 500 products that I have found interesting, inbetween working at the Aja booth and running / speaking at the Director of Photography Conference at Post Production World. I understand that some of my comments have been short but I will be filing a full report on technology and trends later this week. Unfortunately running on 4 hours of sleep a night do wear on your ability to communicate in a coherent fashion.

Cool things this time.

Promise Technologies has a 100M Optical Thunderbolt cable on display in their Booth,



Charlie Kendall of SPYDER Support Systems is showing a $400 mounting plate to allow you do shoot Green Screen footage at the highest possible rez by setting your camera on it's side! It works with ENG style camera all the way down to prosummer versions, any type baseplate, any mounting screw position.



3aility Technica is showing some great stuff this year, but I loved the cheeseplate "armor" for using an F3 in the TS rigs.



Not to be outdone Cameron Pace Group is also outside between buildings showing next gen versions of their "Shadow" rig technology but the Smart Slate they are showing is by far the most advanced that I have seen, as alll of this metadata is being caputured along with the images.




Lastly, because food is a big deal in Vegas (and for me) this was what we started dinner with last night - Iberico ham from Spain at Jaleo

Gary, I understand the horizontal resolution helping for green screen but doesn't the rotate and scaling back to 1080 create other issues? I know software like AE does a great job with that sort of rescaling but is the final result that much better?

No, not if you properly setup the camera to shoot P. This technique has been used for years, mainly so that you can get a larger image on the camera thereby increasing the usable resolution available to post by using the entire frame to shoot a person standing on set rather than less than 1/4 of a horizontally shot image.
