One Man Crew Camera Slider with Tablet Control – NAB 2014

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 4:18 — 179.0MB) When I set up my home studio I tried to find ways to make my cameras work better for me. I thought a slider would be a fun addition – at the time there were no tablets and anything remote controlled would cost an arm and a leg. When I saw Redrock Micro’s One Man Crew, I knew I found something I could use at a decent price. Keep in mind the slider is still $1,495. If you can afford one it will add movement via the camera so...

How to Configure the Mozy Backup

Podcast: Play in new window | Download (22.2MB) In the last couple months, we have been talking about online backup through Mozy.com. It is a great way to take your pictures and audio off-site. That way if you have a fire or theft, you do not loose your data. It’s not the fastest thing in the world – but the more data you have, the longer the initial backup will take. Also, it is dependant on your internet connection – The initial upload took 4 days for me. They counter it by compressing the file before uploading. It encodes, then...
