  1. Hopefully together with a culture shift (I might be dreaming!) and Content Aware Fill then we might find more and more multi camera shoots allowing boom back into the frame as they know it will be able to be easily remove in a snap.
  2. Good luck! Bollywood is meant to be the 2nd biggest location in the world for filmmaking :-) Message @soundtrane for advice: https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/profile/145-soundtrane/
  3. Some people might argue if you look at a small enough level all analogue signals are digital as well... 😉
  4. Going to make a wild guess today for when the "Scorpio Micro" will happen, am thinking: late 2020 or earlier it will ship! (fingers crossed) Sound Devices was impressive in pushing out heaps of MixPre recorders quickly. But if we ignore the M variants, as they're just "small" differences, then they had three: 3 / 6 / 10T. The last of them was the MixPre10T, which has a roughly year and half gap between the 10T shipping and when Scorpio will ship. Thus if we figure out a similar product development cycle for the next big release then this will come in late 2020, which is roughly a year and half from now. However hopefully the product development for a "Scorpio Micro" will be faster than making the Scorpio from scratch (which is totally different to the MixPre10T which came just before it!), so maaaaaybe we can see a Scorpio Micro at NAB 2020? 😉
  5. Maybe the Pre Amps are only used in 24 bit mode and not 32 bit mode?
  6. Welcome to the Lion's Den! :-P Ha Anywho.... beyond the resources people already mentioned (like Jay Rose's book), I recommend: https://www.amazon.com/Location-Sound-Bible-Record-Professional/dp/1615931201/ https://www.amazon.com/Sound-Effects-Bible-Create-Hollywood/dp/1932907483/ https://www.amazon.com/Dialogue-Editing-Motion-Pictures-Invisible/dp/0415828171/ https://www.amazon.com/Location-Audio-Simplified-Capturing-Audience-dp-1138129623/dp/1138129623/ Books are cheap and provide an education valued far more than what it cost you! But we're really spoiled in 2019, as we've got heaps which are FREE! Like YouTube, hundreds of hours of education here, a few youtube channels to subscribe to are: https://www.youtube.com/SoundSpeeding (yes... I might be a little biased with this suggestion! ha) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0vDTntQjs8RD4F6XRlducA https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiVcZ1ObuU7qh1NWMGFB4HQ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq1FV79pJLa8sxcbZ3tAYrg https://www.youtube.com/user/ThatWasSound https://www.youtube.com/indepthsounddesign https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqtCwfDs0b8xhEl6WhwhmqA https://www.youtube.com/user/DavidFarmerSound/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4Ia8iUOV9va_AkG-IIOfIg https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq297H7Ca98HlB5mVFHGSsQ https://www.youtube.com/user/audiogeekzine https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMUHt6JzCMsdtvkaJpU3KXw https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDBV1_28Q_NKF2SxnLO-3jg That will surely keep you very busy! 😉 Come on back after watching all these if you have any questions.... I may post a lot to this forum, however I still manage to read waaaaay more than I post here! But yet I still post dumb questions now and then.... we all have brain farts now and then, however showing an effort of at least trying counts for something!
  7. If you ever find yourself coming up short, then get yourself a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera! They're cheap as chips, and you'll be able to match it nicely enough with S16 footage. Good luck! You'll need tonnes of it.
  8. Nobody really knows yet, as nobody outside Zoom has got their hands on a demo unit to test. But the pre amps are the same as in the other Zoom F series, or in other words: they've very good. As for file size? 32bits is double the file size of a 16bit file, which is very very tiny. Unlike camera department recording raw, I don't think we've got anything serious to worry about here for data management of 32bit recordings. The biggest worry is post handling it, would never do this without getting the OK from post first as it is very nonstandard.
  9. I'm sure both the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China have opinions on if that is made in "China" or not!
  10. I'm guessing you've also been looking at the one on eBay 😉
  11. Did you make sure you were sending it at mic level and not the default line level from the Tentacle? How does it sound when you play back the Canon video clips? Do you have DaVinci Resolve?
  12. Thanks Klaus, that was really informative.
  13. I was quite impressed by their video advert I saw on Instagram yesterday.
