Second crew meeting completed for JTNP climbing documentary today

I really appreciated the long battery life provided by my Nikon EN-EL3e batteries for use in the 5″ Marshall HDMI monitors assigned to 2 of the video cameras for this shoot. I find that 5″ monitors are an excellent blend of visibility for several reviewers, image quality, feature set with peaking and false color filters as well as flip-image (very useful on the jib/minicrane cam), and reasonable pricing.


The sound quality from the Rode NTG-2  shotguns has been excellent.  These are highly recommended for EFP projects in particular, working very well whether on booms or blimps. Cost-effective solution for a wide variety of uses, including dramatic pieces as well as sports, interviews and other recording related to documentary style.


With a crew of about 11, and 2-4 climbers, the project is progressing very well. We’ll be refining some technical issues next Wednesday at another crew meeting, involving both Units ( audiovideo and stills).

Some of the Canon camera users on this team are wishing they had built-in intervalometers for timelapse work- as we Nikonians have!
