Has anybody practical experience with medium-cost wide-angle-adaptors (0.8x, zoomable), as they are now available from FUJINON, CANON and CENTURY OPTICS for professional (not broadcast) lenses with 85 mm front-barrel diameter ?I would like to know whether picture quality is maintained or degrades to a visible extent when these adaptors are used ("real" wide-angle zoom-lenses are so expensive, alas...).Reinhard

this may sound crazy, but i was wondering if it was possible to record sony PD150 footage directly from the CCD block to a portable Beta SP recorder. i have read that beta footage is better because there is less compression, if not no compression compared to DV's 5:1 compression. any thoughts or opinions? thanks.

How to know if a BVW40 has been modified for SP playing tapes ??? Here is my problem. I've bought an used BVW40 which is playing SP tapes. Some tapes are played normally and somes are played with thin horizontal streaks. so i'm asking myself, is this machine has been modified to play SP tapes. How to recognize a modified machine inside ? Or maybe a non-modified BVW40 refuse to play SP tapes ? And then, is there's a way to cut these streaks on the image ?
Hello!Excuse me ... can you help me with PVW-2800P ... it seem to work OK, but suddenly it began to display an ERROR 20 when I'd tried to insert the tape in it... when I look through the glass I can see that the tape isn't standing straight ... what can I do?

RE: ERROR 93-000To: Tom Mountford
>I've been getting an ocassional problem with the UVW1400, When I plug a composite input and loop it through to the reference I've sometimes been getting an 'ERROR 93-000' anyone know what the 93-000 error is?
I have a UVW1800P and the reason I was getting this error message was because I was sending an NTSC signal to the deck. In my particular instance I had to change the targa CP on my mac to output PAL.

Hello!I am in need of working manual and AC Adaptor of BVW 50P Beta recorder, anybody interested in selling?Contact immediately.Darshan LolienkarGoa ( India)
what does error message 93-000 mean?
1:- I'm looking to get hold of a Tube camera (Trinicon, Saticon, etc, all fine), for the effects. I don't know why, but there's something in me which keeps shouting "these are better quality". I guess it's just my excuse for my love of cameras with lag (if only it's the tiniest bit!)
2:- I'm looking for a service manual for a Trinicon HVC-2000PE. My friend gave me this one, and it's been totally uncalibrated. I've taken off both sides, and got an image (which actually isn't that bad, and is better than I reckon it was originally. I've got it to be low lag and high contrast. Good colour balance too), but I'm not certian it's the best it could be. Only a service manual will help me. Any ideas?
Could you please reply by e-mail?? (I know it's a lot to ask, but this chat page isn't easy to navigate. It should be made into a YahooGroup)

I have a Sony Beta tape (NOT Betacam) on which there is about 5 minutes of my wedding, copied in 1978 from my 8mm cine camera. My Beta video player died years ago & I defected to VHS. I would like to copy my wedding onto a VHS tape. Can anyone help me, or direct me somewhere? I know there are commercial transfer companies, but the content/quality of the tape does not justify that sort of spending.

I am about to open up a BVV 5 that I bought on ebay to clean away its glitchy picture and try a few things to waste time and prove I am a dork.1.New line in audio that bypasses micpreamp and bogus "line" attenuator2.Adjust the AFM pots so it has the same headroom "0vu" as the line tracks3.Optimize battery warning shut off levels4.some kind of playback tap5.Yuvsync outs
1.there are test points and a Pcboard to pcboard jumper point that make the line in pretty easy it seems. One test specs is at at 4db for a mic in at -30 tone, a -5db spec for a 4db tone input with line attenuator. The mackie outs are 0 and +4 so one of them should be bout right.(page 10-3 in manual) If 4db is 1.23 volts rms? could the preamps tolerate having that crammed backwards into them or must a cut off switch be included, it would be so much easier to hook onto test points TP102/202 and leave it at that.(why? you ask,I have recorded mixer straight to a edit deck and compared it with mixer to camera, camera blatantly worse) 2.Sony apparently messed up the AFM OVU so a magazine guru says practice is "10VU". If the camera were tweaked to 0vu mackie levels it would be easier to use the AFM as at least back up tracks as most of us have only UVW decks. I have no experience here and would have to run load to distortion tests and backoff 16 to 24db on the pots to match O on the mackie.3. Page 8-2, and page 1-4 deal with it and I am not sure what to do there.4. I guess a phono plug hangin out or holed into the viewfinder would get a black and white playback picture.go ahead, laugh at me.5. Bunch of bncs on skinny coax hangin out betweenthe camera and the dockable that send YUVsync out. I say this in the cameras at House of blues some years ago, the cameras decks were rolling at the same time the liveswitching was going on. might not want them clattering about in the field, wonder if it could be optional

Hello,I need to store some camera masters in house. Does anyone have a suggestion as to where I might be able to purchase a cabinet suitable for this. It would need to be fire proof and the shelves would have to be tall enough to accomodate Beta SP T-60.

Hi, does anybody have any 60 or 90 minute D2 tapes they no longer require, used once peferably. Also i am after an line ouput transformer for an old Ikegami TM-1415, although i think a transformer from later models would also work as they kept the same design. Thanks.
Looking into purchasing a BVW-D75PS but can find no literature on it here on the BetaCamPAL site. I believe that it is a BetaSP deck for PAL but has the option of outputting or inputting via serial digital and aes/ebu digital audio signals. Basically, a glorified BetaSP with a digital I/O. Does anyone have experience with this deck to give me some feedback (pros, cons, problems, etc...) Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
never having done this I hope someone can assist.
Using Digidesign ProTools I have mixed audio for layback to a Sony UVW1800P (PAL Beta). The video must remain intact.
How do I record *only* the audio ? (that is, arm the stereo audio tracks for recording only and leave the video untouched).
Is there a way to do this from the front panel of the Betacam machine ? Do I need software in ProTools in order to do this (I have installed the Machine Control option but as yet haven't seen any options to arm only the audio tracks for recording).
Would most appreciate any advice by email.RegardsPeter

Hi, I'm after Beta SP / U-Matic / VHS machines (preferably working) and Tapes of any format, or any other bits that you longer have any use for, let me know what you have with suggested asking price.
Looking for anyone with insight into old BTS LDK9/10 cameras. What to look out for? How difficult are they to set up? etc.Looking at purchasing 2nd hand set of 5 complete units for college studio use.
I think you are worrying too much about lossy vs lossless video.
Certainly in the UK, high-end stuff is usually Digi Beta (and this is 4:2:2 and compressed at x 2:1). I have seen footage from DVCam and DVCPRO (5:1) and the pictures can look far better than most BetaSP's.It is important to make the distinction between "pro-sumer" and broadcast DV cameras. As DVCam cameras like the DSR500, use professional lenses and to all intents and purposes - are broadcast cameras.
I'm not biased either, because I actually own BetaSP, although I work with a variety.
I'm not sure if you want to buy new or used, but getting an analogue camera (which almost certainly means BetaSP), for under 3000 dollars is gonna be difficult. Digital technology is usually cheaper because of lower cost of components. They also maintain better, and have better head life (usually!). For example (in the UK), a BVW400AP would have cost you about UK£40k, a DVW790WSP (Digi Beta) about UK£30-35k. Not only is the DVW digital, it has better resolution and is widescreen switchable.
Now OK, these prices are out of your ballpark, and I quote them as an example. All you are going to get for the money you want to spend is either a new DVCAM, or a used BVW300.
Hope this helps.Jon

WE ARE LOOKING FOR A USED SONY DVR-28P TO PURCHASE IN THE US. IF YOU HAVE PLEASE CONTACT ME. THIS MESSAGE DATED 12/14/2001
im in the process of buying a pro video camera. I was wondering if anyone could help me pick one. I dont care if its analog. I would actually prefere it since DV is lossy and becuase i think i could probably get an analog camera used easier and cheaper than a digital.
the camera must produce a high resolution. Im not sure of what is really great for resolution but i guess about 700 lines is about right. MiniDV is about 530.
The camera must be 3ccd and not wiegh over 12lbs. Also the media must be easily obtainable.
For a camera like this i know that 0 -3000 dollars isnt much but i think that an analog camera used should be possible right?
Im getting analog because all 0 -3000 dollar digital cameras basically are not worth the money (unless u can prove me wrong?)I do digital editing though so there has to be some way to put it on my computer. I have a lossless video capture system so i need to know, what resolution does the s-video cord support? maybe there is another i need to connect to this?
Thanx so much
