The venerable FX1 is a true prosumer HDV camcorder.
The pro model adds XLR inputs, but lens, chips, and images captured are identical.
HDV tape still is the cost leader for recording HD images. Shoot and go, or hand it off to the client.
True 3-CCD chips – no rolling shutter, no flash banding, no jello-cam, no image distortion.
This handy little item is a combination waveform, vectorscope, and audio scope all in one. The little 4″ LCD shows you everything you need, and you can loop the output of this device to the screen of your choice (composite in and out).
So if you have a composite NTSC feed of your video, this portable device can measure it and give you calibrated IRE readings, vectors for calibrating bars or color charts and more. All this off any 12v supply. AC adapter and protective case are included. (continue reading…)

This is a great live/recorded sound mixer.
Sliders (not knobs) easily relay channel loudness.
Aux 3/4 bus makes this a 4-channel mixer.
Four aux buses (pre/post fader) make it even more versatile.
Do you need a lighting grid in a home where there is no grid? Need a vertical post between floor and ceiling to hide a light where you can’t see a stand?
Then you need the Bogen / Manfrotto AutoPole.
