Hai ,I have just finished my shoot in Varicam.I have used a HD zoom lens 7.3 to 110mm. I was told the mark inside the viewfinder is the scope mark. I also used very low light for the shoot .my producer cannot afford for a ultra prime lenses. I ALSO used dvpro 126 mins tape but when used in HD it compresses to 33mins .i am planning to use carl zesis (old lenses) is it fine the WAY i am working or any guidenses


FIRST TIME IN HD AM I IN THE RIGHT TRACK ?????

There are 10 different frame line options in the varicam settings. There are no "scope" lines. 16x9 is the widest screen available (unless there have been upgrades made since we purchased our camera).

You are correct about the running time of the tapes. The length printed on the box is not relevant when using the varicam.

As for the low light situation...This is a matter of taste. The varicam can produce great images in low light if you are familiar with all of the settings the camera makes available. Lot's of practice along with trial and error are the keys to finding the right combination of settings.

Respectfully,

Jeff
