I bought the LG DM2350D on Pixmania.com. First a few good words about pixmania pro: I’ve read a few really bad reviews about this shop, so hoped to receive everything in good order. I used pixmania pro and the service was excellent! After using it for a few months I discovered that it didn’t support HDMI 1.4 […]

Head mounted display Video Glasses (also for 3D) have only one disadvantage: you can only watch alone. Here are the options: $ 200 glasses with maximum resolution of 320×240 with component input (interlaced).

My FCP 7 does not work natively with the AVCHD extension and/or codec. There are two ways to work around that: choosing an NLE that is AVCHD friendly or converting the files. Conversion tools That’s why you might want to convert the mts files to something that your system can edit. These are the options: […]

GH2 White balance

White balance Red channel Cr problems are reported with a lot of high frequency noise in the red channel (Cr). This is a different problem then the lower Chroma resolution due to the 4:2:0 sampling and the CUE bug. The big reason is that it seems like 3200K is the native color temperature of the […]
