Would be an idea for the Magic Lantern development - if one could identify where everything was saved...

Hi all,I have a Three Legged Thing - called Brian.
I've spent weeks (or months) now looking into a tripod.
I'm looking at getting a Carbon Fibre on and in particular the 3 Legged Thing - Eric.
The thing I'm getting confused about is getting a "stable" tripod... The 3LT Eric has 3 locks and 4 leg section/segments...
After doing my researching I have in my mind that this isn't stable and I should be looking at only a 3 segment tripod.
Is there completely false? What's people opinions on this?
And I realize there is the 15-85 and 17-55 options out there, but I don't believe they were kitted with the 7d, though I may be wrong about that.
For those with experience, how are the non-L 70-300 IS or the 70-300 DO?I am about to upgrade as Deva did, from the 70-300 IS USM non-L to the 70-300L.
1. Do I need another monitor besides the LCD on the camera to check focus etc?
Not 100% necessary, but useful. The more you focus pull the more necessary one will be.
You can view at upto 10x for the initial focus. Eyepiece LCD viewfinders such as Zacuto are available as well
2. Which is the best slider for price for DSLR?
sorry not my area - try Planet5D or similar websites
3. Which is the best way to record audio? Do I record on camera or external recorder and sync using a slate? I have a BeachTek DXA-SLR available for free. Is it any good?
External recorder - you can sync then using a slate or software such as pluraleyze. can't comment on the Beachtek
4. Should I use Magic Lantern software or original Canon RAW? If magic lantern, then which version?
Canopn does not record RAW Video. Regardless of whether you record RAW or not the Magic Lantern is recommended for the 5D3 (not available for the 1DX) for focus peaking etc.
5. What is the ideal ISO for video? And if not ideal, what is the acceptable range for noise free work.
ISO160 or multiples thereof if required
6. Is 1/50 the only shutter speed to work at or it does not matter?
You can set the Framerate in the camera - so depending on your output you would set the shutter speed at double that.
7. Will my Imac be ok for the edit? I will not buy an Imac now until it is refreshed, but just want to prepare myself on the speed of edit.
Can't answer that - but I suspect it would be a little slow for RAW Video editing
Further - one Card ?? You will need several - or a stack of them if recording RAW Video....
ANY help is appreciated sincerely.
Original aspect means the same ratio of length to side - so a 4x6 = 8x12 = 2x3 etc.
I've done the corrections for color, WB, noise....I've done cropping, but in Aperture I was doing it with 'retain original aspect'....
I don't know what that original aspect is...hence, my asking.
I'm wanting to know if I want 4x6 prints, if I need to go back to all my images and re-crop them before sending them out...or if the 'native' export from the 5D3 happens to be 4x6...?
>> 438 level
i've looked this up and it's about £70
i'm pretty sure the tripod has a spirit level
i assume therefore that's pants and a level is required?
If you are shooting roughly on the level, and have time to adjust the legs to get it level then OK - and you can certainly start that way. But Levelers were invented for a reason - especially for use on uneven ground.
don't quite understand. are u saying u have an extra tripod that holds the lens? how??
is there a youtube video or at least some pics of the setup to see?
Still just the one tripod, however with longer and thereby heavier lenses, the balance is around the foot suport of the lens - and no strain is placed on the mount of the camera body when the foot is attached.
For starters you wont need this - start worrying with/above 70-200 f2.8
fcpx: what's wrong with it?
why is it sooo bad? the reviews i read... the bad thing was that u couldn't run old projects. what else is really bad about it? this was something i was seriously going to buy as well
Nothing probably - though I have no experience. Many people were aggrieved at the changes, but many have learned to get over it and still use it. I personally am using Windows - so it's all adobe for me.
[polariser]: am i ok to buy a kit from ebay for under £25? or are there better branded models that i should choose?
Classic quote - if you are using a $25 Lens and camera put a $25 filter on it. Do not waste your money on GBP25 Polarisers - you need to pay double. Make sure you get a circular and not a linear polariser. Good marks are B+W, Schnider, some Hoyas (e.g. HD Pros) , plus the Camera own brand names. You may only need one for the largest filter size so get a good one. If you are shooting wide angle you may need to consider getting a slim fit one.
Is it OK, then, to turn this into a Tokina 11-16 vs Canon 10-22 thread? It'll likely be a mix of indoors, landscape, outdoor buildings, large group shots and experimenting.I have the canon 15-85mm as well. Can't yet afford a FullFrame and still waiting for excellent WA zooms there
