NAB 2010

Robbie Carman did two wonderful workshops on Saturday. One on Color and the other on safeguarding media. He made a complex-looking app (Color) look do-able for the ordinary person. Thank you.

Jeff Greenberg, whom I did not mention, spoke about setting up a FC editing suite. Very dynamic and entertaining.

James Ball and Matt Gottshalk spoke about monitoring for HD-DSLR. These cameras are a royal PITA to focus. You need either a finder or a monitor or both. James and Matt did a good job of reviewing the options. Matt is generous with his knowledge over at

Production Notes:

Canon 7D with 50mm Zeiss ZE, shot “flat.” Sekonic light meter. Ambient light.

Final Cut to Color round trip.
