Who want to buy second-hand upper-drums of a UVW-1600 and/or UVW-1800? These drums came out of the recorders after periodic maintenance.

Not only does PAL have more resolution then NTSC also it's framerate is at 25 fps. Being only 4% away from the SMPTE 24 fps standard. DV is becoming populair. Since most DV camcorders have a amateur lens on them there unusbale for film. I know of a lens ring for the well known and widly used Canon XL-1 to mount 16mm lenses and filters on it. Making it a good low budget digital film camera. Also a more professional machine such as a DSR-500P or a HL-V77 can give excellent digital film like preformance with the right lens. Also "moulding" colour scales and light effects when editing provides a way better film look for video material. Be sure not to amp the CCD section above 0db or exceed it's low level (picture noise level!). Picture noise can be removed on an avid, but it also narrows down your colour spectrum

Need some advice from other pro's. I want to shoot a feature and haveit "filmlooked". I've been told that PAL is inherently a sharper image that NTSC (100 lines or so), and wanted to use that over DV. I've been editing dv for a while already. No matter what dv camera that footage is shot with, it resolves at 500 lines, right? But Ihear a lot of you say you'd use it over Beta PAL? Really?...Seems to me it's bigger bandwidth AND 250 more broadcast lines.

I am gathering information on the number of power supplies (dc-dc converters)that have failed on any of the following cameras, Digital Betacam or Betacam SX

If you've had a problem could you give me an idea of how many you have come accross any that have failed either on one or more occasions.

Hallo Kollegen ,

Ich habe einen DVCAM Dock-Rekorder Sony DSR1 Pal und würde diesen gerne eintauschen gegen einen Betacam SP SONY PVV3 Pal Der DSR1 P hat folgende Stunde Gelaufen: Drum Spin = 404 HTape Run = 118 HOperation = 655 HOptischer Zustand 1- bis 2 Hat ein paar Kratzer auf dem Kassettendeckel .

und wie schon oben gesagt Tausch gegen einen Gleichwertigen Sony PVV 3 Pal Der Gebraucht wert dürfte ja derselbe sein.Leider möchte der Großteil der Kundschaft immer noch Betacam SP Vorteil der DVCAM ist bis zu 3 Stunden Digitale Aufzeichnung auf ein Tape .P.S. der Dsr wurde gerade erst durch autorisierte Werkstatt durchgesehen .

There's a very simple way to get a BVW75 to run at DT speeds, with a TTL (transistor to transitor, all pins adressedm with no crossings) logic control cable from a 9 pin RS 232 to the RS 422 in,you can adress DT commands. Programms to do so can be found at tucows and are free of charge. The search dial on a BVW 75 from the latest revision can also search at DT speeds (The pot meters on them are the same as the ones on the digital decks)

I want to use a BVW75P or a PVW2800 to play back at various speeds. I am currently (as I type!) playing with a BVW75 but the control available to the 'stand alone' machine only gives me the preset 0.03, 0.1, 0.5, 1 & 2x speed options. As I don't want to go to the expense of hiring in an edit controller, is there any other method of accessing the ability to program the machine with more precise percentage settings?

Any help or advice appreciated.

My production company is looking to buy a betacam, 2nd hand. I really need some advice on any internet sites where I can see and maybe buy a camera - or where I should look for a safe and fair deal on a camera.

We are looking to spend around US$10,000 - and maybe get a lens as well. what sort of betacam would i get for those dollars. big point: i need a PAL camera.

thanks for any help
