sonnenstudio Posted May 17 Report Share Posted May 17 Dear soundies, I wanted to ask if you use any tricks to estimate the field of view of respective lenses in order to quickly estimate how close the boom & the body of the operator can come to the frame? I assume it comes intuitively with years of experience but I was wondering if anyone has any tips. I've been booming for about a year and a half now and getting better at estimating how close I can get but still need a lot of practise to become more precise & quick at it. I'm doing mostly TV and doco work in which the framing is rarely pre-determined and in which sound dept is only 1 person. On that note : does it ever happen in doco's that the boom operator uses a (small) camera monitor mounted on the bag? Thanks in advance! koen Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
