Chris Randall | If you're in the market for a new laptop for your SDEs, I highly recommend the HP EliteBook 8760w workstation. It's like taking a super-fast, full-sized tower computer and cramming it all into a laptop with an amazing display. With Adobe CS 5.5, the 8760w, and its built-in NVIDIA graphics card, you'll be ready to rock the SDE world!

Mark & Trisha Von Lanken | Working with DSLR footage creates new challenges in post, from ingest to format support issues to audio sync, and it takes a skilled editor and powerful, versatile editing system to create a masterpiece from even the most stellar DSLR footage. Here's a look at how the Von Lankens have adapted their short-form edit workflow to work DSLR imagery into the mix.

Ben Balser | I'm very impressed with the image quality in HD Monitor Pro, as well as its ability to zoom in and move around the zoomed image as well. The supplied overlays are also very professional and useful grid lines, such as action safe, title safe, rule of thirds, center crosshair, and alignment. HD Monitor Pro is a very complete package. With a MacBook Pro it could help take your production up a notch. You won't be using this for run-and-gun events. But if you're doing film-type work, TV spots, legal depositions, and the like, it could be a very practical and productive tool.

Jan Ozer | The launch of Adobe CS5 brings to bear the obvious comparison with Final Cut Studio (FCS). Since life has been far too quiet lately, I decided to tackle this subject, but from the perspective of the totally new user, not the experienced user who would rather fight than switch. In other words, what would you say if a total newbie asked, "Which should I use, FCS 3 or Adobe CS5?"

Mark Von Lanken | Owning your own business has many rewards, but at the same time, it comes with frustrations. Don't let your NLE add to your stress and frustration levels. Find an editor and assemble a system that makes your editing process smooth and manageable, no matter what acquisition codec you use. Now that I shoot AVCHD and DSLR footage—which means I'm always working with codecs not designed for editing, and which is about as demanding as it gets in the wedding filmmaking world—EDIUS 5.5 is the answer for me.

Marc Franklin | The Matrox MXO2 LE is a good choice if you need every possible input and output from your Windows or OS X machine and the flexibility to use it on a workstation or a laptop. If you're mainly editing HDV on a Windows workstation and don't need all of the I/Os and you want the real-time effects for editing, the RT.X2 may be a better choice. If you need all of the I/Os as well as a few more codecs, you can move up to Matrox's top-of-the-line Axio LE, which handles what the RT.X2 doesn't.

All suite components were upgraded (to varying degrees) except for DVD Studio Pro—which, as you may recall, wasn't upgraded in the previous suite either.

Marshall Levy | Although I have a state-of-the-art home office and even a dedicated theater room just for clients, I often meet with prospects all throughout the adjoining states, which makes having them come to me challenging.

Daniel Boswell | For years I've been waiting for a camera that would deliver high-quality HD images, shoot great in low light, include progressive capabilities, and be able to get very clean slow motion via overcranking for specialty shots.

Chris & Laura Randall | The Matrox RT.X2 is a stable real-time HDV editing solution that adds filters and time-saving features to Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0. Dynamic Link and WYSIWYG video output allow users to view their work just as the client would. Most editors will need to upgrade or build a new system to accommodate the card and its requirements. At $1,995, it's not an inexpensive upgrade, but you will have a professional SD and HDV editing system that rivals much more expensive options.
