It was actually on -3db gain (true zero), no gain up, which is how I always shoot if I can (sometimes hard to shoot that way on event shoots, but even at 6db there is no noise.. however.. at 18.. the noise is rather noticeable)

Man, I need to get myself a 35mm adapter for my camera now. It's so hard to get the depth of field similar to that of film cameras.
Keep us posted Powerbook, I would like to see more of your works.

leecho7 -- Are you talking about a dSLR or a movie/motion camera? DOF for a dSLR is identical to a 35mm camera using the same lens. The only difference is that most (not all) dSLR cameras also have a crop factor, so the lens sort of "zooms" more; but if you have a 5' wide DOF with a given 35mm camera using a given lens at a given aperture, then you will have the same 5' DOF when you put that lens on a digital SLR.

Heh, sorry for not clearing that up. I mean for a Panasonic AG-DVX 100A camcorder. It's a great camera that gives a good film like quality, but not nearly as good as Powerbook's setup.

I got this new lens a week or so ago. Nothing too crazy just wantd some zoom and was on a tight, tight budget. Takes pretty good shots gets a little soft past 250mm mark though.

Just found this thread and I too think it's awesome. Some of you have some amazing gear; here's mine.


My baby: Pentax K10D DSLR, 10 megapixels, weather and dust sealed body, in body image stabilization. It's a 28-200 mm F4-5.6 lens attached.


My other lenses: 18-55 mm F3.5-5.6, 50 mm F1.4, and a 80-200 mm F4 macro. And assorted filters. There's also an AF-540-FGZ flash unit on the right, it's a guide number 148 and it's wireless capable even without a second unit mounted on the camera.


My film gear, a Pentax PZ-20 SLR with a 28-80 F3.5 lens (the others fit this rig too.) and an IQZoom 115G point and shoot.


My entire DSLR setup!

A shot of the back of the DSLR!


My vintage cameras, two are over 100 years old and the smallest one is a WWII era model. (We mostly collect these but we do shoot with them once in a while when we can track down film.)


Finally my editing software, Adobe CS3 Design Premium, and Adobe Lightroom. Both free direct from Adobe themselves.

(2) Nikon D70s dSLR cameras (18-70mm zoom & 50mm prime plus macro extension tubes)
Panasonic DMC-LX2K (10mp widescreen point-and-shoot)
Sony HDR-HC7 1080i HD MiniDV camcorder

My wife is a part-time photographer, hence the D70s cams. Those are my favorite, the ergonomics fit my hand like a glove I just replaced my Canon A75 with the Panasonic LX2 (from 3.2mp to 10mp lol). It's a little on the grainy side at times, but I really like it. It's got 4:3 and 16:9 modes plus video, all in a tiny little package. Here's a quick video clip of the size:

My only complaint with the Panasonic is that the lens cover isn't integrated like most point-and-shoot cameras. I just picked up the Sony for doing various video projects; I can't believe how small that is either. It's a beast for it's size though

Hi everyone.

When I am not carrying a Sony900HDCA for NBC news, I shoot leisure video with a Canon XL2.

Basic gear set up specs are as follows;

XL2 - 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratio shooting formats.
20x zoom XL 5.4-108mm L IS.
Manfrotto Sticks 501,525 PKIT.
7" LCD Monitor. 16:9 / 4:3. USB . Video/Audio, in.
2 x Headphones Con.
Senheiser HD201.
Pelican Case.








My digital stills photography is pretty lame. I use a simple Canon PowerShot S5 IS.
