Been catching up on some SBS 3D over the last week since I finally have that figured out from computer to TV now.
Watched Don's Bryce Canyon and Valley of Fire, both really nice productions. Valley.." the audio wasn't quite right between music and dialog, it seemed a little too heavy on music and was harder to understand. Bryce... sounded very good and balance between music/dialog. Very good images on both though. I haven't been to either place so it was nice to see these. I want to say one of these locations, I think it was Bryce canyon I have some footage of it recorded off of 3Net on their National Monument series. Unfortunately I have no way of getting the content off of there in 3D.
I'm hoping to get a vacation in next year and do some filming out of state. Filming locally right now. Had a really nice day yesterday filming Steam Punk Day, lots of neat costumes and attire and the people were just fantastic and willing to pose for shots and talk about their costumes, I really enjoyed going. The weather could have been better, it rained here and there but there were places to get out of the rain, right at the end I was setting up both cameras for firing of the Howitzer canon, then it started to downpour.
Luckily I had my bag covering the Z10k which was setup in front on the ridge and didn't get too wet. I got both under the tent just in time where we were all huddled up for awhile. Both of these cameras are fairly watertight but I think I'll stick them in front of the dehumidifier today, just to be sure. Got set back up after it cleared about 15 mins. later, they weren't sure if they were going to still do it, but they had the powder and they even made reference to me, "hey, we got a guy with the 3D camera here, so maybe we'll go ahead and fire it." Sounds like nothing you've heard before if you've been right at 20 feet from one when they go off. Good shots of it from the front from the Z10k, I had that one running in 2D @60p and my main 3D rig running that one @24p, I probably should have had both setup for 3D but I wanted one good shot in 2D, next year I'll probably do both in 3D.
I wish I could get some footage up, but I don't have an editing tool yet. Been putting funds aside for some gear but I might just pull the trigger on Vegas Pro instead. And, I think I'll make some rain covers and bring them along from now on. It was a little nerve racking being stuck in the open and no way to protect your equipment.
