EventDV Magazine: August 2008

Patrick Moreau | The challenge for us as videographers, is how to achieve a very shallow DoF with sensors that are much smaller than those our photographer counterparts use to create a similar effect. The solution comes in the form of a sexy, black carbon fiber tube that attaches to the front of your camera, the Brevis 35 adapter.

August 2008: Column: Amen Corner
Tim Siglin | In pursuit of a little "down time," away from technology, my oldest daughter suggested that I accompany her on a trip to Acapulco, Mexico, this summer to help with a construction project at an orphanage.

August 2008: Department: Continuing Education
