Welcome to the 2007 Edition of Keene

Electronics catalogue

Dear AV Enthusiast

Welcome to our catalogue for 2007. This issue contains our biggest

ever collection of audio and video accessories, including those hard

to find gadgets, gizmos, connectors and problem solvers. We never stop

searching for useful new products and if we can’t find them we even

design and manufacture them ourselves. We like to think that it’s this level

of in-house technical knowledge and ability that will give you a better

shopping experience than so many of the faceless box-shifters that exist

today. You’ll find this catalogue full of information that passes on our

knowledge and experience and we hope it helps you to make more

informed choices about the products you buy. We endeavour to provide

you with:

Free advice from knowledgeable and friendly staff

Fast delivery from massive stocks

Very competitive prices

We’ve been trading in AV accessories since 1988 and have always kept a

close eye on the developments in the industry, making sure that we have

the right products for your recording and viewing needs. We hope you

enjoy browsing this catalogue and that you find the information useful.

Happy Viewing

The Keene Electronics Team

When you’ve found the items you want, our mail/telephone/fax order form can

be found inside the back cover. It will help us to deliver the exact products you

need as quickly as possible if you quote their order codes – shown in the

catalogue mainly in square brackets thus [XXX] and on a yellow background.

If, before buying, you want to know anything more about a product than our

catalogue description, give us a call. We understand that it can be difficult to be

sure when ordering by post, and if you want us to we’ll run into the warehouse,

get the item you’re interested in and weigh it, measure it, describe it, or just sort

of wave it around near the phone. However, please be aware that while many of

our staff can help with technical questions, a little patience may on occasions be

required if they are engaged on other calls. Also, as our resident egg-heads need

their beauty sleep, please try to keep calls with technical queries between

9.00–5.30 Monday–Friday, 9.00–5.00 Saturdays.

Personal customer reference

If this catalogue was delivered to you by post,

along with it you should have received a

Camcorder batteries

Our range of batteries keeps increasing, so phone if you can’t find the battery

you want in our list – we may still have it or be able to get it for you. Because

of exchange rate fluctuations, battery prices may change within the life of this

catalogue, so please call to check prices before ordering

Note that battery designs and specifications may also be subject to change

within the life of this catalogue. The pictures are typical for the batteries we

supply at time of going to press, although there may be small variations in

design from time to time.

Our ‘Slimfit’ batteries are the same size as the slim battery normally supplied

with the camcorder, but use Nickel Metal Hydride cells to cram the maximum

possible power into the casing. Select a ‘Slimfit’ model if you want to keep

size and weight to a minimum without compromising capacity.

What is a battery?

A rechargeable battery is made from a

number of individual cells in an outer

casing. These cells vary in voltage

according to their chemistry. In a nicad,

for example, each cell when charged

has a nominal voltage of just over 1.2V,

and a 6V camcorder nicad consists of 5

such cells wired in series, although

other configurations are possible.

Are all camcorder batteries the same?

No. Rechargeable camcorder batteries

can be distinguished by the type of

chemistry used in their cells. There are

four commonly used types:

Lithium Ion (Li-ion)

Nowadays the most popular type of

battery pack for camcorder use.

Advantages: • Very high energy

density so batteries are small and light.

Nicad (aka NiCd or Nickel Cadmium)

Once the most common type of

camcorder battery, nowadays becoming

much rarer due to environmental

legislation. Advantages: • Cheap and

plentiful. Disadvantages: • Need

careful handling to get the best

performance (see later) •

Environmentally unfriendly – they

must be disposed of carefully.

NiMH (Nickel Metal Hydride)

A popular alternative to nicads.

Advantages: • Better energy density

than nicads, eg a typical 3400mAh

NiMH pack is no larger than a

conventional 2400mAh nicad • Not as

prone to handling problems.

Disadvantages: • Slightly more

expensive than nicads • Exhibit a fairly

high rate of self-discharge and ideally

should be charged immediately prior to

use.

Lead Acid (Pb)

Once common in large format

camcorders, now increasingly rare.

Advantages: • Relatively cheap •

Reliable and robust. Disadvantages: •

Heavy • Limited life span (typically 3

to 5 years).

Choosing Batteries

When you buy a camcorder, you are usually supplied with just the one

"standard" capacity battery for it, and as you have no doubt discovered

it runs the camcorder for a disappointingly short time. The choice of

extra power needs some careful thought, as you need to consider the

physical size, the weight and of course the price. This section is designed

to answer some of the questions we are most commonly asked.

What does mAh mean?

mAh stands for milli amp hours. 1000 milli amps is actually the same as

1 amp, so you may find the ratings sometimes expressed as either 1 Ah

or 1000 mAh. There is no difference between these. Amperes or amps are

a measure of current. Thus a 1000mAh (or 1Ah) battery should be

capable of delivering 1 amp of current for a period of 1 hour. For the

more technically minded, the capacity tests are usually carried out at

100mA (1/10 of 1 amp) until the battery terminal voltage falls to 1.1V

per cell. This will always give a better figure than you achieve in a

camcorder.

What are Watt-hours? (usually printed as Wh)

This is an alternative way to rate a battery's capacity and is in many

ways a better system as it accurately reflects the amount of energy a

battery can store. For example, a 3.6V 2000mAh battery stores half the

amount of energy of a 7.2V 2000mAh battery. Watt hours can be

converted back to mAh by dividing the Watt-hour rating by the battery's

voltage, eg a 6Wh 6V battery equals 1Ah or 1000mAh.

How does this help me?

When considering a replacement battery, you can relate the capacity of

your existing battery to the potential replacement, and so be able to

calculate approximately how long it should last. For example, if your

current battery is rated at 1000mAh and gives you 30 minutes of running

time, a replacement battery rated at 1500mAh should last 1500/1000 or

1.5 times as long, ie 45 minutes. Some batteries on the market are quoted

in terms of potential running times rather than their actual capacity. You

might see a battery advertised as a "90 minute version", or similar. This

approach is a little misleading as the stated running times are invariably

produced by doing a continuous playback, with no LCD screen, no

zooming and usually at a constant temperature of 25°C. This is

considerably different from normal use and so you are unlikely to

achieve a similar result.

Are higher capacity batteries bigger?

Generally, an increase in battery capacity is accompanied by an increase

in its physical size. For example a 2000mAh pack usually contains two

sets of the cells that make up a 1000mAh version and is usually about

twice as thick, and, as you'd expect, twice as heavy.

New batteries - first charge

New batteries can sometimes be difficult to charge. As the charging

process begins the battery voltage wavers, and this can be (mis)

interpreted as "battery full" by the chargers, which then stops charging.

Removing the battery from the charger then immediately putting it back

will often cure the problem, but with some battery/charger combinations

this may have to be repeated four or even five times. Once the battery

has been successfully given its first charge, there should be no problems

with subsequent charging.

Note on charging: NEVER TRY TO FURTHER CHARGE A BATTERY

THAT HAS GOT WARM it usually means that one or more of the cells is

fully charged. If in doubt, discharge first.

D-SLR Battery Grips

CANON & NIKON D-SLR BATTERY GRIPS

New! - Battery Grips to fit Nikon and Canon

Digital SLRs. They provide a sturdy grip, useful

for hand-holding in portrait format and

crucially double the number of shots you can

take! They also come supplied complete with

two EL3 / NB2L type batteries. Not only that,

there’s also a holder that takes 6 AA batteries.

This can be a real lifesaver on remote shoots as

you can nip into a newsagent, grab some

batteries and carry on shooting even when your

main batteries are pancaked!

Great value!

How many shots? well, on a (very tedious) test

with a D50 set to maximum resolution, with

flash on every shot and the screen previews set

"on" it gave over 2300 shots!

Battery tips: Cycling

Batteries tend to work best when used frequently. Used correctly once a

week most batteries should last at least five years, but if left charged on

the shelf, they can sometimes fail in as little as 3 months. When a

camcorder battery is put into service for the first time, its capacity will

be low, and it may prove difficult to charge. This is also true of batteries

that have been stored for a few months or more. The answer here is

cycling - that is repeatedly charging and then discharging the battery

several times in succession. Normally four of five charge/discharge

cycles will restore the battery back to its full capacity.

I don't expect to use the camcorder for a while. How should I store the

batteries?

Nicad and NiMH batteries should be discharged correctly then stored in

a cool place. Lithium-ion batteries may be stored in any state of charge.

Lead/acid batteries should be stored fully charged, and also periodically

recharged during continued absence of use. All battery types should be

brought up to room temperature before use. A battery should not be left

on the camcorder, as even with the power switched off a small amount

of electric current still flows.

Camcorder Holiday Checklist

If you are taking your camcorder on holiday then its worth considering the

following;

Batteries

Have you got enough batteries? Bear in mind that in general, batteries perform

well in warm climates, less so in colder ones. Don’t leave your batteries (or

camcorder for that matter) in direct sunlight or in a car on a sunny day if you can

avoid it. If you are going somewhere colder, try to keep your batteries about your

person to keep them warm. If you have purchased batteries for your holiday then

remember that new batteries will perform better the third or fourth time they are

used. If you can, it is a good idea to charge and discharge them a couple of times

before you go, particularly if they have not been used for a while.

Charging

What is the mains voltage at the resort? Check the label on the base of your

battery charger carefully. If it says ‘input voltage 110-240V’ then it can safely be

used anywhere. If it says ‘220-240V only’ then DO NOT attempt to use it on 110V;

it will overheat and severe damage will occur. Most (but not all) of Europe is 220V

and so any UK 240V charger should work satisfactorily. America and certain other

destinations are 110V. Contrary to popular belief, a multi-voltage input charger

(i.e.110-240V) will take the same amount of time to charge a battery whatever

voltage it is supplied with.

Car power

If you take your car on holiday, or hire one upon arrival, it is well worth

considering the convenience of a car charger. Car chargers usually work whether

the car engine is running or not, and consume next to no current when compared

to a car batteries capacity.

Blank tape

Have you got enough tape? Tape can be bought at most resorts but it is likely to

be much more expensive. Be careful – fraud is common, and the trademarks of

most leading brands are often illegally reproduced on duff tape. Tape intended for

Keene Lead/acid battery chargers

Keene Electronics Catalogue 2007

Neat and effective low cost chargers for

lead/acid battery packs. Provide a

controlled constant voltage charge to

safely and gently bring your pack up to

of 'power' and 'charging' status. The 12V

lighter plug fitted (ready to connect to

New! Eneloop Batteries from Sanyo!

These are a new type of hybrid battery - You get all the convenience

of a disposable in that they come fully charged and ready to use, yet

they can also be recharged, just like a Nicad/NiMH giving you the best

of both worlds! They have an incredibly low rate of self discharge

meaning they can be charged and shelved ready to use when its

convenient to you. A conventional rechargeable battery, if charged

and left on the shelf would retain only about 75% of its capacity after

six months and will have lost virtually all its charge after 1 year. An

Eneloop battery still retains 90% after six months and 85% after 1

year! They can be recharged in any charger suitable for NiMH

batteries.

Remember - they come fully charged ready for immediate use!

different countries is usually based upon a different system to the UK PAL (eg

NTSC, SECAM etc). It will work just the same, but the running times will be

different from that stated on the box. The grade of tape you use DOES make a

surprising difference. Don’t entrust your memories of the holiday of a lifetime to a

cheap rubbish tape. Never store or transport your tape without its protective

sleeve, you risk damage to the tape surface and may transfer dirt and dust to your

camcorder itself.

Have you got a comfortable and protective case that will accommodate both your

camcorder and its accessories? Remember that you should usually carry your

charger and batteries with your camcorder as hand luggage to keep airport

security happy, but check this with your tour operator before departure.

Filters

To protect your lens then make sure that you have either a UV or skylight fitted. If

you want the sea or the swimming pool to look like it does in the brochure then a

polariser is a must. See our filter selection guide for more details. Another must

for any holiday is a lens cleaning cloth and/or packet of wipes. Hot hands

covered with sun tan oil don’t half mess up filters and lenses!

Rain cover

Hopefully it won’t rain on your holiday, but spray from the sea can have terrible

effects on your camcorder. A rain cover offers good protection from this and takes

up very little room in the gadget bag.

Tripod

If you have room, a lightweight tripod will come in very handy. Not only will it

enable clear steady shots, but it also gives you an opportunity to put yourself in

the picture!

Finally and most importantly, before you leave test all of your equipment. Include

any new purchases and make sure that everything is working properly. It would

be very frustrating to arrive at your destination and find that you were unable to

charge your batteries!

[USUK300] £44.99

How do I know which one I need?

One VA is approximately equal to one Watt, assuming the load is

purely resistive (and most AV gear is). You can calculate the power

rating (in Watts or VA) of your equipment, and hence determine the

rating of the voltage converter to use, by multiplying the current it

draws by the voltage. Here are some examples:

Electric shaver 0.05A x 120V = 6VA use [USM45]

Radios 0.1A x 120V = 12VA use [USM45]

CD player 0.15A x 120V = 18VA use [USM45]

Christmas tree lights 0.2A x 120V = 24VA use [USM45]

Games Console 0.35A x 120V = 36VA use [USM100]

Televisions vary (check rating) but typically [300VA] use [USM300]

Computer 5A x 120V = 600VA use [USM1000]

NB these are just examples, please always check the actual rating!

INTELLIGENT MAINS PANELS

FOR COMPUTERS

At last a genuinely

useful intelligent

mains distribution

panel for your PC.

Simply plug the PC into the designated socket and then use the five

remaining sockets for your monitor, printer, cable modem, LAN

equipment, amplified speakers, in fact anything at all that you normally

switch on and off at the same time as your computer! The mains panel

constantly monitors the amount of current drawn by the PC and as soon

as it detects it has been switched off (or gone into 'sleep' mode) the

power to the other outlets is automatically switched off. As soon as the

PC is switched on again (or wakes from sleep) all the peripherals are

powered again. It also includes a 10 second delay to allow for

peripherals such as printers and scanners that need to "park" when the

computer is switched off. Not only that, it includes full surge protection

circuitry. A brilliant device that saves you time and money!

[IMPCA] £24.99

FOR AV AMPLIFIERS

A great product for anybody whose

home cinema amplifier features a

switched AC outlet. This clever unit

acts as a switched six way mains

distribution block. It detects the

presence of power from your

amplifiers outlet and relay switches full

mains power to all six outlets. When

the amp is switched off, power is

removed again. This means that just the one power button on your

amplifier can now switch your CD player, DVD player, Tuner, Subwoofer,

games console, television, plasma screen, projector - in fact

anything you like! Not only does this save time, it also saves power

and gives you peace of mind. A great innovative product.

Two versions are available:

For amplifiers with a 3 pin (Bulgin) type mains outlet

[IMPBP] £29.99

For amplifiers with 2 pin (euro type) IEC type outlets

[IMPEP] £29.99

Please note: if your AV amp does not have either of the above types

of switched outlet you can still achieve the same results by using the

current sensing mains panel [IMPCA]. With the AV amp plugged into

the computer outlet the IMPCA will control the supply to the other

outlets as and when the amp is switched on.

Keene Electronics DC HUB

The Keene DC HUB is a clever device that

takes one single DC input and "shares" it

between up to five outputs. This allows you to

replace up to five mains adaptors with just the

one, freeing off some valuable mains socket

space and generally tidying up your system.

The input voltage can be anything between 5

and 18V DC and the output voltage will be approximately 1 volt

less than the input. The available current will be shared between

the outputs. In practice, if you'd got say four devices all of which

use 12V DC at between 100 and 200mA (a very common

specification for most gadgets and processors) then you could

replace all of these with one mains adaptor rated at 12V DC

of current drawn by the PC and as soon as it detects it has been

switched off (or gone into hibernate mode) the power to the other

outlets is automatically switched off. As soon as the PC is switched on

again all the peripherals are powered again. It also includes a 10

Video lighting

Why do I need a video light?

Most modern camcorders claim that they will function in very low light

conditions, ie just one candle power (or less!). This is certainly true, and

you will get an image if you try it. However, the autofocus will usually

perform badly, with a lot of ‘hunting’ in and out, and the picture often

lacks colour contrast, and will be very grainy. These problems can be

overcome by use of a low wattage video light.

Whilst the human eye tends to see all sources of additional light the same

as daylight, there are in fact quite strong variations in the colour of light

(sometimes called colour temperature). For instance, a normal tungsten 60

or 100W bulb has an orange cast to its light, whereas fluorescent tubes

tend to have either a green, or sometimes red, cast. This is why your

camcorder will have different settings for indoor or outdoor use. Video

lights use halogen bulbs which are very close in colour to ordinary

daylight and so they can help to reduce these colour casts when filming

indoors. Also, if you are videoing photographs or using an on-camera

slide copier then a video light makes an ideal daylight type light source

for this.

Video lights should not be thought of as an indoors only product. Even

under cloudless skies, people’s faces can suffer from shadows caused by

strong sidelights and a video light can overcome this problem. TV camera

crews almost always use additional lighting for outside interviews.

How do I attach a light to my camcorder?

On-camera video lights are usually designed to be attached to the

camcorder by the accessory shoe. This is a 3/4” square section very

similar to the flashgun ‘hot shoe’ found on most SLR cameras, but for

video it has no electrical connections – it is usually just a mechanical

means of support. It seems less and less common for a camcorder to be

fitted with this shoe as standard, but there are a number of inexpensive

accessories which will provide one for you. Please refer to the ‘SUPPORT’

section of our catalogue for more information.

An advantage of camera mounted lights is that the light and camera

always move together, so when the end result is viewed you are not as

aware of the additional light as you would be if the light and camera were

separate.

DSM Pro Video Light

New from DSM this is a well engineered fully

featured professional camera-top video light.

Coupled with the innovate Handex battery this

makes a superb lighting kit suitable for any

occasion. The light head has two swing-in swingout

filters, one dichroic (daylight) and one

diffused. The Handex battery is shaped to fit

neatly around the camcorders handstrap (via

easy-fix velcro straps) and provides a nice

counter-balance effect to aid steady shooting. A

quick release platform enables rapid fitting and

removal of the video light at the press of a

button. It comes with a standard Camcorder

accessory shoe fitting meaning you can use it

either on-camera or on the Handex battery

itself. Its supplied with a 30W bulb fitted and

theres also a 20W in the box. Theres just one

thumb wheel involved to

change over.

Hama Magnum LED Digi Light

New from Hama, this is a pocket sized video

light that uses super bright LED’s instead of a

conventional bulb. LED’s use a lot less power

than a bulb so although this uses just two tiny

AAA batteries it can run continuously for up to

two hours! The rated output is 12 lux, ideal for

an on-camera fill in light. Use it in sunlight to

eliminate harsh shadows or in poor light to

assist focussing and reduce grain. The colour

temperature is 5500K which is actually slightly blue but in use your

camcorders auto colour balance compensates for this. A great little

product that takes up next to no space in your gadget bag.

How long will a video light run for?

Video lights are very power hungry. The current drawn can be calculated

quite easily by dividing the wattage of the light by the voltage of the

battery. For example a 20 watt 6V light will need 3.3 Amps (20W divided

by 6 volts = 3.3 Amps or 3300 milli-Amps). So, a 1000mAh battery will

only be able to provide 3.3 Amps for around 18 minutes, (1000/3300 x 60

minutes = 18.18). A 30 or 40 watt light is going to decrease this usable

time even more. In other words, use the light sparingly, and do not leave

it on if you are not actually filming.

Batteries used with a video light

It is important to realise that when a nicad battery is used to power a

video light, the light MUST be switched off immediately it starts to go

dim. If the light is allowed to go very faint or out completely then overdischarge

damage to the battery will occur, resulting in the battery either

not charging or failing to hold a charge. This is why it is not a good idea

to use a video light as a discharger.

UNOMAT SOFTBOX KIT INCLUDING ACCESSORY ARM

A common lighting problem is the harsh effect that studio

lighting can have on the subject when it is shone directly at the

subject. Whilst 'bouncing' the light off reflective umbrellas can

reduce the glare, a better result can often be gained by using a

softbox. Measuring 38 x 48cm, the Unomat Softbox has a rear

'box' made from strong reflective material, black on the outside

with a white translucent nylon front panel. This white panel 'softens' the

light and gives a much more even covering over the subject.

The Softbox comes complete with mount (comprising a metal

ring into which four plastic, flexible rods are inserted to give the

box it's rigidity. On the rear of the bracket fits an angled bracket

which attaches to a UAC Universal Accessory Bracket. This allows

easy fixing of the softbox to light stands etc.

Weight: 800 grams Dimensions: 38 x 48cm F Stop-loss: 1/2-2

Can I still use autofocus?

Yes - the autofocus mechanism of the camcorder should not be affected

by fitting a lens (or a filter), unless your camera has an infra-red

autofocus system. In this case, when using an additional convertor lens

you will have to switch to manual focus.

Wide angle lenses 22

Two lens sets 22

Telephoto lenses 23

What do add-on lenses do ?

Since the zoom lenses that are built-in to the camcorder cannot be

removed, then the additional lenses that you can buy are strictly

speaking lens convertors. This is because they fix to the end of the

existing built-in lens and change its range in some way. The lenses are

all rated in terms of their magnification factor. Anything rated at greater

than a 1 Times (1X) is considered a telephoto, and anything rated at less

than a 1X is a wide angle. A wide angle will increase your field of view

(you can see more in the viewfinder), a telephoto will decrease your

field of view (the image is enlarged, as if you were closer to it).

Generally, wide angle lenses are useful for filming indoors (or for

particular scenic shots outdoors), and telephoto lenses are useful for

when you can’t get close enough to your subject to fill the viewfinder

(sport, wildlife, etc).

What do the lens numbers mean?

All video camcorders have a zoom lens built-in as standard. Depending

upon the particular model, this lens will have a rating of anything from

say 6X (6 times) to 12X or even more. There are considerable differences

between various makes and models of camcorders in terms of where

their zooms start and end. To find a common point of reference for each

model, it is easiest to think of the widest possible wide angle setting on

you current camcorder as being 1X or ‘1 times’. It then follows that a 6X

zoom will enlarge that image in the viewfinder by 6 times. If, for

example, a camcorder which has a zoom range of 1X to 8X were to have

a 2.0X lens convertor attached, then its new telephoto range would be

from 2X to 16X. Similarly, if the same camcorder were to have a 0.5X

wide angle convertor attached to it, then the maximum area viewed

would be twice as great as before, and its zoom range would then be

changed to 0.5X to 4X.

Bear in mind that the magnification factors of most add-on lenses are

based on the degree of change in visible area, not on the linear

(horizontal and vertical) changes. For example, if a camcorder was

focused on an image 6m wide by 4m high (ie of area 24m2 ) which

completely filled the frame, then fitting a 2.0X telephoto lens would

reduce that area of the image which filled the frame to 12m2 , half what

it was, or approximately 4.2m wide by 2.8m high (see diagram).

Anything less than a 0.5X, for instance a 0.38X, is classed as a super

wide angle or ‘fish-eye’ convertor. These give an extremely wide field of

view and although the effect can be dramatic, any verticals in the

picture (telegraph poles, door frames etc) can appear somewhat bent

out of shape.

How are the lenses attached?

All camcorders have a screw thread which is on the inside front edge of

the lens. Lens convertors simply screw onto this. The thread size will be

of a specific diameter in millimetres. The actual thread size is sometimes

printed around the lens barrel on the inside or outside front edge (see

below). Failing this it is usually contained in the technical data section in

the handbook. It is most commonly referred to as filter size, as this is

indeed the same place that filters are attached.

Lens and filter thread sizes

Around the edge of the lens barrel on your camcorder there is usually

some printed information. If you see the diameter symbol (∅) followed

by a number (eg ∅37), then this number is the thread diameter you

need to know when ordering and connecting filters and lenses. Two

numbers connected by a squiggle, eg 23~43mm, is the focal length of the

zoom lens, not its diameter.

What is vignetting?

Vignetting (pronounced Vin-yet-ing) or ‘tunnel effect’ can sometimes

occur when a lens has been attached and the camcorder’s zoom is set

towards the wide angle end of its range. What can happen is that the

camcorder attempts to look through the side of the lens body, with the

end result that the corners of the picture appear dark, or in extreme

cases the effect can be like looking through a drainpipe.

How can I avoid vignetting?

There are two general rules which apply, dependent upon the lens:

Wide Angle: Try to ensure that the lens thread size is a direct match for

the camcorder, i.e. if possible avoid stepping rings. If you have to use

stepping rings then make sure that they are step-up, ie. the camcorder

thread is smaller than the lens thread.

Telephoto : Generally speaking, you can usually use a small percentage

of your zoom range before vignetting becomes noticeable, but this

becomes less and less the greater the lens factor. Lenses at 1.5X don’t

usually vignette. At 2X, some do and some don’t and at above 2X most

will vignette at the wide angle setting. As you would normally be using

it only at the tele end of the zoom range then step up and step down

rings can be used without any problems.

Filters, stepping rings, lens & filter accessories

Filters

What is a filter?

A filter is simply an optical

device, usually made from coated

glass or sometimes resin. Its

purpose is to alter in some way

the light that enters the lens, and

hence produce an effect on the

recording.

How do I attach filters to my

camcorder?

All camcorder lenses have a fine

thread machined onto the lens

barrel and the filter simply

screws on over the lens itself. Be

careful – do not over tighten a

filter as they can sometimes be

very difficult to remove. Thread

sizes differ from make to make,

and the thread size is usually

printed around the edge of the

lens, or failing that look in the

technical data section of your

owners manual. nb Some

camcorders lens covers clip into a

special plastic housing which is

screwed on in the place where

your filter needs to be attached. If

this is the case then just unscrew

the lens cap housing, fit the filter

and then screw the lens cap

housing back on over the filter.

Can I use more than one filter at

once?

Yes - all our filters are threaded

both sides so that one filter can

be screwed on top of another.

I already have some filters for

my SLR camera – can I use these

on my camcorder?

Yes - a wide variety of step-up

and step down rings are available

to match the thread sizes. It is

advisable to use step up rings

only (ie larger filter onto a

smaller lens) otherwise

vignetting can occur.

Circular polarising filters

This filter has the same effect as

Polaroid sunglasses, ie it eliminates

unwanted reflections and

helps colour saturation. It will

deepen the blue of the sky and

make clouds stand out more

strongly. Particularly useful on

holiday – it helps to make the sea

look a little more like it did in the

brochure! There are two types of

polarising filter available, circular

and linear. Broadly speaking all

camcorders should use only the

circular type, whereas manual

focus SLR cameras (remember

those!) should use the linear type.

Polarising filters can be freely

rotated once fitted, this allows

you to find the desired position

for maximum effect, but beware

the autofocus as this sometimes

rotates the lens barrel! It can at

first be difficult to gauge the

effect of a polarising FILTER

through a mono viewfinder, and

it is best to become familiar with

the filter by using your TV as a

monitor. Another little known

fact is that a polariser also

reduces the overall amount of

light by around 2 ‘stops’, ie a

similar effect to that of an ND4

filter. Altogether, a polariser is

possibly the most useful filter you

can buy.

tinted and have the effect of

making anyone in shot appear to

be suntanned. It will enhance the

gold of sands and mellow out any

harsh light. On cloudless days, the

mid-day light can be very blue

and the footage can appear

almost cold. The warm filter gives

Skylight filters

The skylight filter has a very

slight pink tinge to it, designed

to counteract the very blue light

that can occur on cloudless days.

The effect is more noticeable on

SLR camera use, (and camcorders

with manual white balance), as

the camcorders auto white

balance tends to ‘correct’ any

effect produced. This filter also

makes an excellent lens protector

against finger marks, rain spots,

general dirt and dust and accidental

damage. They are easy to

clean, and, if it becomes

scratched or broken then simply

throw it away and buy another

one. The average camcorder lens

assembly would be in excess of

£100 to replace, and may be out

of action for some time. A useful

trick with these filters is to smear

Vaseline around the edge to

produce some interesting effects

(don’t try this with your lens!) If

you buy no other filters, one of

these is an absolute must.

Neutral density ND4

This filter is purely designed to

reduce the amount of light

entering the lens, without

affecting the colour tones, ie a

neutral colour shift. Particularly

useful in strong light and high

contrast situations for example,

snow or Mediterranean beach

scenes where the camcorder’s

auto exposure can be operating

out of its normal range. It can

also be used to force the camcorder

to use a slower shutter

speed for creative effects.

Soft focus filter

There is a big difference between

out of focus and soft focus! Next

time you have the opportunity to

study an old Hollywood Marilyn

Monroe film for instance, look

carefully at the difference in effect

between a close up shot of the

leading lady and a close up shot of

the leading man. Almost always the

camera trained on the leading lady

is fitted with a soft focus filter. It

takes away any harshness from the

lighting and generally makes things

‘easy on the eye’, giving a more

misty, romantic feel. It can be used

with considerable effect in a wide

variety of situations, not just close

up portrait shots. If your camcorder

has manual iris control then the

effect can be slightly enhanced or

decreased.

Cross screen filters

Also called a ‘star’

filter, the effect is to

turn any bright light

source within the

picture into a star. Very effective

for night time city shots, party

lights etc. If your camcorder has

manual iris then the effect can be

manually altered, although auto

exposure still give great results.

Graduated filters

These filters change

from clear at one

edge to coloured at

the other, and are

designed to help

you cope with

extremes in contrast. When

filming outdoors, the sky is

usually brighter than the

foreground and the camcorder

will ‘average out’ the overall

exposure. This usually makes the

sky look rather washed out. A

graduated filter, positioned with

its coloured area over the sky,

can greatly enhance scenic shots

by giving a more natural result.

There are three types of

graduated filter to be commonly

found – blue and grey, both of

which darken the sky without

altering its colour significantly,

and tobacco, used mainly to

enhance sunset/sunrise shots.

Note that the filter rotates within

its housing once fitted, so if your

camcorder thread rotates when

focussing you should ideally

switch to manual focus, focus

and then position the filter

correctly. Be wary of panning or

tilting when using a graduated

filter.

In general, our filters are

usually manufactured as

single coated optical glass

or resin whereas the

ìdigitalî series are multi

coated.

When ordering a lens or filter you will need to have the filter thread

size of your camcorder to hand. This can usually be found as part of

the camcorder specification in the handbook, and/or will be marked

around the camcorder lens as a number preceded by a diameter

symbol (∅), for example ∅37 denotes a 37mm thread size.

Not all filters come in all thread sizes, but you can still use the filter

you want, even if not listed as available to fit your camcorder. Simply

order the nearest larger size filter together with the appropriate

stepping ring. For example, to use a 6 face parallel multi image filter

on a camcorder with 37mm thread, order the 46mm filter and a

37–46mm step-up ring.

Close up filter

Strictly speaking a lens, but it is in

this section because it has more

in common with a filter. There

may be occasions when you will

want to video small objects like

photographs, coins, stamps or

even insects. The problem is that

you cannot get a sharp image

closer than your camcorders

minimum focusing distance. A

close up filter acts a little like a

reading glass and enables you to

focus, use most of your zoom

range and maintain a sharp

image whilst working very close

to your subject. They are

available in four strengths or

‘diopters’ (nb a diopter is the

number of times the focal length

of the lens can be divided into 1

metre). A +1 diopter is the

weakest magnification, and +4 is

the strongest. If you have never

used one before, a +3 strength is

probably the most useful.

**Tip** Camcorder shake will

also be magnified so it is best to

use a decent table top tripod.

Close up filters in sets of three,

(+1, +2 and +4 diopter). These

filters are ‘stackable’ ie you can

combine a +1 filter and a +3

filter to get +4 diopter, so this set

gives every option from +1 to +7.

Audio “Who the hell wants to hear actors talk?” Sam Goldwyn

All About Sound

The soundtrack to your video footage is very

important but often overlooked. A poor

soundtrack can make even the most

spectacular piece of film appear dull or

amateurish. Sound can be thought of in two

separate stages; firstly the sound that is

recorded whilst you are filming, and secondly

the sound that can be added or ‘mixed’ when

you edit. The human ear is very complex, and

you can easily single out and concentrate on

one particular sound against a background of

many others. Your camcorder microphone

On Camera microphones

cannot do this, and will faithfully pick up and

record all sounds that are present. When you

come to play back your footage, you may often

be surprised by hearing things you hadn’t

noticed when you were filming.

The solution is to monitor the sound whilst you

are filming. If your camcorder has an

headphone socket, then simply connect a pair

of headphones. If it doesn’t, then a device such

as the Keene Electronics Headphone Amplifier

will provide one for you. It has been said that

not monitoring the sound when filming can

give results as unpredictable as closing your

eyes while of looking through the viewfinder!

RODE VideoMic (mono)

RODE have a name for making large diaphragm

condenser microphones for recording studios and

musical applications. They’ve now turned their

attention to the Video market with some rather

excellent results.

The RODE VideoMic really is a superb bit of kit.

The build quality is excellent and the body even

incorporates a fully suspended shock mount to

keep camera noise to an absolute minimum. The body design also

provides a small offset which helps keep the mic out of view on wide

angle shots. The audio quality is also excellent, in fact at this price,

unprecedented. It’s powered by a standard 9V PP3 type battery, not

included by Rode, but we throw one in because we’re nice like that!

Rather than the Sennheiser ‘flicker’ the Rode power LED is constantly

illuminated green to let you know all is well. The battery life is over 100

hours. There’s also a switchable high pass filter to reduce unwanted low

frequency rumble. It has a standard hot-shoe mount and the shock

mount body is also threaded for mounting on a boom arm or tripod. The

connection is via a 3.5mm stereo mini jack. If you want to improve your

movie soundtracks this is a Godsend.

Features:

• Studio recording quality.

• Rugged fibre-reinforced ABS construction.

RODE VideoMic (stereo)

following on the success of the truly

superb VideoMic (RVM), Rode have now

expanded the range and produced a true

stereo microphone along the same lines.

The build quality is excellent with an all

metal case giving it a truly bomb-proof

feel and again using a fully suspended

design to keep camera noise to an

absolute minimum. It utilises two capsules

in an X/Y configuration to give true stereo

recordings with good soundstage whilst

still offering a high level of rear rejection

and low noise. It’s powered by a standard

9V PP3 type battery which is constantly

illuminated green to let you know all is

well and battery life is over 100 hours.

There’s a switchable high pass filter to

reduce unwanted low frequency rumble, and also a switch for 10db

attenuation, useful for recording in high sound pressure level

situations eg concerts, racetracks, train stations etc. It has a standard

hot-shoe mount and the shock mount body is also threaded for

mounting on a boom arm or tripod. The connection is via a 3.5mm

stereo mini jack. Also included in the box is the Rode “Dead Cat” Pro

furry windjammer. This is a really lovely bit of kit.

[RMZ14] £34.99

My camcorder manual says ‘only use a microphone of XXXX ohms’,

what does this mean ?

Microphones are generally classed as either ‘high impedance’ or ‘low

impedance’. A high impedance microphone would be in the the region

of 50,000 ohms, and a low impedance usually below 10,000 ohms. Most

domestic camcorders are configured for low impedance microphones,

and although the manual may state an impedance of say 1500 ohms, in

practice there would be little audible difference between one of this

specific value, or any other microphone that could be classed as low

impedance.

BEYER DYNAMIC PROFESSIONAL SHOTGUN MICROPHONES

The MCE 86 series shotgun microphones can be used for video

recordings, lecterns or theatre applications. The microphones are

extremely light and rugged and therefore ideal for mounting onto

cameras or camcorders. The can be

used for outdoor applications and in

studios with fishpole booms or as

handhelds. The electrostatic

transducer element and the

hypercardioid/lobe polar pattern

result in an excellent polar pattern

with high sensitivity. Due to its

construction and integrated active

filter the microphone is insensitive towards wind and vibrations

caused by zoom motors. Each sound source is reproduced absolute

clearly. Weighing only 92 g, the MCE 86 is one of the lightest shotgun

microphones of all. Due to the rugged construction and non-glare

Nextel-finish the microphones are insensitive to mechanical strains.

The MCE 86 requires phantom power, if this is not available the MCE

86 S version should be used.

Microphones

Microphones are designed to pick up sound in a certain way, and can

be classified accordingly;

Omni-directional

Will pick up sound equally from a 360 degree circle around it. It is of

most use when placed amongst a group of people, on a table at a

meeting for instance.

Cardioid

Will pick up sound mainly from the direction in which it is pointed.

This is almost always the type of microphone that is fitted as standard

to your camcorder.

Super cardioid

Similar to the cardioid, but has a narrower field of response and so is

more directional. Sometimes referred to as shotgun microphones, these

are the most common accessory type of microphone, bought to

supplement the camcorder’s own microphone.

Hyper cardioid

A fairly specialised piece of equipment that has an even narrower

response field than the super cardioid.

Stereo

Most people change microphones because they want a different

response pattern to that of the on-board microphone. To go very

directional it is difficult to preserve a stereo image as both left and right

elements pick up sound at the same time. To get a directional response

with a stereo camcorder choose a mono microphone and use a stereo

to mono conversion lead. The other main reason for using an offcamera

microphone is to defeat motor noise, in which case choose a

stereo microphone to maintain the soundstage.

Other microphone groups include:

Tie clip

A very small and unobtrusive microphone, designed to be attached to a

tie or lapel. The microphone is connected to a small battery holder

which will fit easily into a pocket, and this is in turn connected to the

camcorder by a good length of cable (usually 12 – 15 ft). They have a

number of uses; to add commentary at the time you are filming, to

position on string or key instruments, or for interview type situations.

Radio microphone

Consists of a matching radio transmitter and receiver. The transmitter

has a socket which will accept either the tie clip microphone provided

with the unit, or if you prefer, a separate microphone can be used. The

receiver plugs into the microphone socket on the camcorder.

Boundary microphones (also know as PZM or Pressure Zone

Microphones) are designed to minimise echo and give a consistent

acoustic when recording in a large room. This is achieved by placing

the pick up capsule as close as possible to a flat surface (the

"boundary"). The microphone then picks up sound waves reflected

from the boundary itself and cuts down on the unwanted reflected

sounds that would otherwise produce echo and a less clear recording.

In essence, placing a boundary mic on a table means that the table

surface itself acts as part of the microphone pickup and so provides a

great way of getting consistent sound from a group of people sitting

around a table. This makes it ideal for weddings (head table) and also

for conferences, lectures and even stage performances

Boundary microphone ATR97

My camcorder manual says ‘do not use an external mic which is

battery powered’ – why?

This is there as a safety precaution against some microphones which do

not isolate the DC supply from the microphone jack. Such models are

rare nowadays, and all those we supply are fully isolated and can be

used without problems.

If I plug in an external microphone, what happens to the sound from

the camcorders own mic ?

The internal microphone is automatically disconnected when you plug

in an external microphone. In fact if you want to you can mute the

camcorder microphone by just plugging a suitable jack plug into the

microphone socket.

QUICK TIPS - MULTIPLE RADIO MICROPHONES

Unfortunately you can't use several radio mic transmitters with just one

radio mic receiver even if they're all set to the same frequency. It might

seem logical that it ought to work but in practice it won't. Think of it in

terms of your car radio - if you listen to two station broadcasting on the

same frequency you don't hear two nicely mixed radio broadcasts, you

just get interference. The only way to use multiple mics is with multiple

receivers all set to different frequencies. The output of these different

receivers can then be routed to a mixer and back into your

camcorder/PA or whatever is required. Alternatively, since the outputs

are mono, you could route just two microphones to your camcorder

directly, one to the left channel, one to the right channel (assuming of

course you have a stereo mic input). If the inputs aren't separately

socketed you might find our adaptor KA131 useful (3.5mm stereo jack to

two 3.5mm mono sockets).

Rode Pop Shield RPS1000

When vocalists and presenters say words containg

the letters “p” and “b” they expel a rush of air

which can cause the microphone diaphragm to

“pop”, giving a thump on the finished recording.

This pop shield dissipates the air and removes the

problem. It also provides a good visual reference

point as to where you should be positioned when

speaking, as you often hear fluctuations in level

and tone as the speaker when moving away from

and around the microphone. Simply clamps on to

any microphone stand with an adjustable goose

neck for positioning.

Wind noise

If you are recording outside, even a gentle breeze can produce an

unwelcome roaring sound. Some camcorders have a ‘wind cut’ switch as

an attempt to counteract the problem. Usually this is a low frequency

filter, and although it does remove some of the ‘boom’ from the wind

noise, it is not totally effective. The best solution is to use a wind gag.

This is essentially a furry sock which encloses the microphone. The fur

reduces air velocity around the microphone, without affecting the sound.

You may occasionally see articles that tell you how to make a wind gag

from an old sock, pencil case or whatever. Unfortunately, these home

brewed devices usually reduce all the sound, not just the wind noise.

Purpose made wind gags use an ‘acoustically transparent’ material

which does not reduce overall sound levels. This explains why they

perhaps seem a little expensive for what they are.

Condenser microphones and Dynamic microphones - what’s the

difference?

The main difference is that condenser microphones (also called electret)

need an external power source to work, whereas dynamic microphones

do not. The power for a condenser mic can either comes from a small

battery housed within the microphone body, or by the "phantom" power

method where power is obtained from the recording device via the

cable.

Some golden rules of sound recording

• Get the microphone as close as possible to the subject.

• If you can’t get the microphone near try and raise it as high as

possible above the general ‘hubbub’ of conversation near to you.

• ‘The more you open the window, the more the muck flies in.’ This

basically means that the further you are from the sound source, the

higher the camcorder will set its recording level, and so the more

rubbish it will record along with the sound that you want.

Digital audio – what’s what?

In the earlier days of digital audio the conversion from digital back into

analogue was always performed within the CD player itself. Now,

particularly with the advent of DVD, the thinking is to preserve the

signal in its digital form as long as possible to keep signal loss and

distortion to a minimum. This is achieved by routing the signal directly

from the player in its digital form into a suitably equipped amplifier or

TV for decoding and amplification. This process has led to a

bewildering array of terminology, a few of which we’ve attempted to

explain here:

S/PDIF, an abbreviation of ‘Sony/Philips Digital InterFace’, is a defined

standard for PCM stereo digital audio. It uses a single phono (RCA)

connector for electrical signals or a TOSLINK connector for optical

signals (the information contained in the signal is the same in either

case, and convertors are available to change one type into the other).

S/PDIF signals use different sampling frequencies for different

applications and can carry stereo audio (CD, minidisc or DAT) as well as

multi-channel surround sound.

AC3 (Adaptive Coding 3) is an audio compression standard based on

the S/PDIF PCM audio delivery system. Dolby Digital Surround AC3 is

a 6-channel surround sound system that uses the AC3 compression. The

sound is encoded to 5.1 channels (five full bandwidth signals plus a low

frequency channel for the subwoofer), and then encoded using the AC3

compression standard. AC3 systems are backwards compatible with

S/PDIF in that they will also decode stereo, but S/PDIF systems will not

necessarily decode AC3.

DTS, an abbreviation for ‘Digital Theatre Systems’, is another multichannel

digital audio standard which uses less compression than Dolby

Digital to give an arguably better sound. Some players and amplifiers

support both AC3 and DTS decoding although at time of writing there

is not much DTS encoded material available.

THX is not an audio standard in its own right, rather it is a very tight set

of specifications to which THX-certified equipment must be

manufactured. The brainchild of George ‘Star Wars’ Lucas, it was

intended to prevent the soundtrack of his films sounding different from

cinema to cinema because of equipment variations. In theory at least, the

film soundtrack should be faithfully reproduced in any THX-certified

cinema. THX in the home is generally an exercise in open-wallet surgery

as certified hardware is phenomenally expensive.

Volume Remote Control

Ever wished your amplifier had

remote control for the volume?

Now you can easily add IR remote

control to most amplifiers with

this simple device. It has two

phono sockets for line in and two

for line out. Simply connect it in

line, position the IR receiver

wherever you find convenient and

have easy volume adjustment.

Leds for power and confirmation

of ‘up’ and ‘down’ commands.

It can be used in a number of

ways:

• Inline in between pre/power

amp combinations

• Within tape line out/line in

loop (if vacant) with the amp

set to ‘tape monitor’

• In between say CD player line

out and amp line in (to control

that device volume only).

[VRC] £59.99

Sound mixing

Video sound mixing is the process of adding to or replacing the

soundtrack on your footage at the time that it is edited. Connections are

made as shown in the diagram. The norm is to have three channels on

the audio mixer; one channel being the incoming camcorder soundtrack,

another being a microphone input for commentary, and the other for

music from a tape deck, CD etc. The important thing about a mixer is

that all three channels can be present simultaneously, and so the final

result is not necessarily just

one channel or another. If

you want to add ‘live’

commentary whilst editing,

it can be frustrating if you

make a mistake as the

whole thing needs to be rerecorded.

It is easier to

record the commentary onto

an audio cassette and then

mix it in on the final copy.

Plasma/LCD & Projector owners - do

you get frustrated by the lip-synch

errors when viewing? It occurs because

of a delay introduced by the

• Remote control

• 680ms maximum delay (340ms for 96kHz signals)

• Automatic input switching, with input's last delay restored

• Can convert optical-to-coax/coax-to-optical, for connecting 2 sources

to an amplifier with a single input

• 12 user-programmable presets (6 per input)

• Adjustable display brightness

• Discrete IR commands for integration with learning remotes

• No effect on audio quality thanks to bit-perfect reproduction

Did you know?

Hard disks are now over 50 years old. The first hard disk was the size

of a refrigerator, weighed 1 tonne and could store 5Mbytes of data -

that’s 0.005 of 1Gbyte. At the time it cost over 50,000 dollars!

Freeview USB TV Adaptor

FREEVIEW ON YOUR LAPTOP!

Heres a great gadget! Just plug the USB

stick into your laptop or PC and watch

Freeview! Its supplied with a neat

magnetic base antennae, a remote

it suits. We've given one of these a good

road test in the office and they do work

really well.

Grabbing still images from Video

You can use any camcorder as a digital still camera by ‘grabbing’ a

single frame (either from tape or as a live image) using a video capture

device such as a USB video adaptor described above. Bear in mind that,

even if your camcorder is the latest all-singling all-dancing digital

model, its resolution is still limited (by the camcorder’s PAL sampling

rate of 13.5MHz) to a maximum of 414,720 pixels (720 x 576). When

compared to the 5 million plus pixels of most digital still cameras you

can see there is a significant difference. That said, the images can still be

perfectly acceptable and it’s often a good way of getting ‘extra’ snaps

from a holiday or special occasion. As a quick guide to picture

resolution, VGA is 640x480 pixels, SVGA is 800x600, XGA is 1026x576

and SXGA is 1600x1200. Most camcorders now also feature the ability to

shoot stills directly on to memory cards and often employ enlarged

CCDs (larger than is required for straightforward video recording) to

enable higher resolution stills to be captured. Some also record directly

to Hard Disc with the same end result.

at will. There's no external power

requirement and the device is very compact

DC Hub mains socket saver

Provides up to five DC outputs from one DC input.*

Liberates up to four mains socket outlets.

Uses differential and common mode filtering for clean, spike free outputs.

Current sensing LED indicators for outputs in use.

*

Input voltage 5 – 18V DC, output voltage approximately 1V less than input. The available current is

shared between the outputs. In practice, if you'd got up to five devices all of which use 12V DC at

between 100 and 200mA (a very common specification for most gadgets and processors) then you

could power all of these with just one mains adaptor rated at 13.8V DC 1000mA and one DC Hub.

The DC Hub is available with or without mains/DC input adaptor.

Video Post-production

DV Capture, Cables, Switching & Conversion

“In art, economy is always beauty”

Henry James

What is Editing?

Editing is the process of removing unwanted scenes and arranging

footage into the desired order. The dramatic impact of a film depends

largely on the arrangement of scenes, and this is why there is a

Hollywood Oscar specifically for editing. Proper editing is just as

important for your home videos.

It is impossible to edit video by splicing the tape in the same manner as

cine film. Video editing is therefore done by producing another copy of

the original, and removing or changing scenes in the process. If desired,

titles and other effects can be added at this stage.

There are several ways of achieving the same end result:

a) It is possible to shoot your footage very carefully so that the end result

when played back is exactly how you want it. This is called "in camera

editing". It is very difficult to do, as it allows for no corrections or re-takes

and means very careful alignment before each section is shot.

b) Editing can be done manually, simply by connecting your play VCR

(or camcorder) to a record VCR or DVD recorder and changing it from

record to record pause at the scenes you want to remove. This is

assemble-editing at its most basic. Problems usually occur with the

timing of each sequence, as it is difficult to be accurate and if you make a

mistake anywhere you will need to start over from the beginning again.

c) You can use a non-linear editing system such as a PC (with capture

card) or a stand-alone system such as Casablanca. These systems allow

you to effectively view the finished production before its committed to

tape (or disc) and is increasingly the most popular method of editing.

DV Capture & Editing

FIREWIRE LAPTOP DV EDIT PACKAGE

A laptop edit package consisting of a

PCMCIA card, software and cable. The

PCMCIA card provides two IEEE1394 6

pin Firewire ports. Once fitted you can

use this card to connect to other

Firewire devices (eg scanners) as well

as DV camcorders. The pack includes

Ulead Videostudio (v5) editing

software plus the additional Ulead

DVD plug software plug in to help you

turn your finished production into a DVD. (The PCMCIA card can also

be used with other editing software eg Premiere should you wish.)

Also included is a 4 pin to 6 pin Firewire cable. Excellent value for

money.

Package contains:

2 port IEEE1394 cardbus

Ulead video Studio software

Ulead DVD plug-in software

4 pin to 6 pin Firewire cable (2m)

System requirements:

Any computer with a 32-Bit Cardbus/PCMCIA Type II slot; Windows

98SE (Second Edition) or ME or 2000 or XP; Recommended minimum

specification: 500MHz or faster processor with 128MB RAM and 13GB

of free disk space per hour of DV footage to be captured.

Compatibility

This card requires the 32bit style cardbus PCMCIA slot to operate.

Older Laptops (1998 or earlier) may have the older style 16bit PCMCIA

slots. To check, open Windows device manager and look at the

properties for the PCMCIA socket. As long as it mentions ‘cardbus’ it

will be OK, If not, then it will not be compatible with this package.

Firewire 8 way switchbox

A useful product, this is not a

conventional hub but a true switchbox.

The VS81FW is a high quality mechanical

eight port switcher for Firewire (IEEE

1394) signals, using six-pin Firewire

connectors. It is designed for

applications requiring a compact

desktop unit for routing Firewire signals

(Digital Video, Data, etc.) between any

two of eight sources and eight output devices. The machine allows

connection of up to 8 bi-directional sources/destinations and to select

a link between any pair of machines. This allows for simple wiring in

small DV production studios. Note that the VS-81FW can only provide

one signal path at any given time (one active crosspoint) - it cannot

distribute a signal to multiple outputs simultaneously. The unit

switches over the power as well, thus allowing the powering of one

Firewire device from another, which is connected to the switcher (for

example, powering a hub/distributor from a Firewire card). High

quality switching components and carefully designed circuits provide

excellent isolation between inputs, and make the VS-81FW ideal for

high frequency signals up to 400 MB/s. No external power required.

DIMENSIONS: 18.8 cm X 10.2 cm X 4.4 cm

[VS81FW] £239.99

Firewire Repeater Hub (1 in 1 out)

The DVREP1 acts as a joining device between two 6 pin DV cables -

ideal for creating long Firewire cable

runs. It can be used with a 4 pin to 6

pin adaptor (code 43100) although

the unit is BUS powered so one end

MUST be powered by connection to a 6 pin powered device (not

camcorder). It is supplied complete with cable ties and the case has

slots to allow these to secure the DV cables. This means you can attach

the repeater and cables to the ceiling, lay them in a cable trough or

keep them on a cable roll for staging applications. It includes an

"active" led so you can tell when everything is working.

[DVREP1] £38.00

Firewire Repeater Hub 1 in 5 out)

A Firewire DV Hub with 6 x 6 Pin DV (IEEE1394)

Ports. that allows multiple devices to be

connected to one DV Port. It allows one DV

Device to feed up to five outputs and boosts

DV signals for extended cable runs up to 200m

without quality loss. It can also be cascaded to

supply up to 63 ports. The device itself can be either

line powered (from a 6 pin device not camcorder) or via

the supplied mains adaptor. Compatible with PC Windows

98/SE/ME/XP/2000 systems and iMac systems.

[DVREP] £65.00

KRAMER DV LINE PROTECTOR

The Kramer PT-1FW is a tiny device - installed between

two cables - that solves a huge problem in DV studios

(or in any other professional or home DV application).

Often, when connecting a "live" DV source to a

receptor, an electrical potential difference or any other

element creating high voltage (such as ESD or a live

chassis) may cause permanent damage to one or both

of the connected devices.

This high voltage may be seen as a spark occurring at

the instant of connection, or may not be seen at all, but

nevertheless it can result in costly damage. The PT-1FW

is installed between two cables, does not need a power supply, and

suppresses all transient high voltages down to the permitted level. It is

a "life-saver" for studios and other DV applications using the 6 pin

Firewire connector.

Technical Specifications PT-1FW

INPUTS: 1 Firewire 6 pin connector.

OUTPUTS: 1 Firewire 6 pin connector.

PROTECTION: ESD 15 kV, 24 Amp peak for 20 microsecond.

DIMENSIONS: 27mm x 49mm x 18mm (1.06" x 1.9" x 0.7") W, D, H.

What are ‘generations’?

The tape on which you first recorded your footage is known as the first

generation or original tape. A copy of this original is a second generation

copy, a copy from this second generation tape is third generation, and so

on. With the exception of digital, quality is reduced in each successive

generation, when editing it's best to try and keep the number of

generations as low as possible.

The DVK-100 is the first Chroma

Keyer that is designed for schools,

small studios, wedding

videographers and small size

production companies. Now you

can easily create a virtual studio

effect. All you need is a DVK-100, a suitable background (see page

21), two video cameras and proper lighting.

Features:

• 2 camcorder inputs for foreground and 1 background input

• Key out background colour selectable (blue, green or black)

• Key out level adjustable to reduce the shadow after keying

Time Base Correctors

Do I need a Time Base Corrector?

Due to their construction and design all tape based players and recorders have inherent

mechanical instability. For audio systems this error is usually referred to as "wow and flutter" and

although the mechanics of the video system, are different it's essentially the same type of problem.

Video signals are more sensitive to these errors than audio signals due to the much higher

bandwidth of the signal. When a video signal is played back from a tape based system the timing

pulses that combine with the other information to produce an image will not be reproduced at

perfectly regular intervals. Televisions and other displays are still able to lock onto the signal to

produce a watchable image so the error is usually unnoticed. The problem comes when trying to

record from a tape based system, either onto another tape or to capture into a digital system as the

recorder requires more precise timing. When going tape to tape the problem manifests itself as

picture jitter and any visible vertical lines will appear to have kinks in them. If copied from tape to

tape repeatedly the picture will start to tear up and it eventually reach the point where the display

can no longer produce an image. When capturing digitally the problem shows up as dropped

frames which will cause audio sync problems (amongst others!) when you start to edit. Time Base

correctors contain circuitry to correctly restore the timing information within the signal and

prevent these problems occurring. They won't however magically restore picture quality that

might be missing from a poor 6th generation VHS tape! In short, if you ever record analogue video

tape to tape or capture from an analogue source they're a very worthwhile investment.

TBC100 PCI Card

Most camcorders will not produce a completely stable

synchronised video signal, and although not always

apparent whilst viewing, it can cause problems like

dropped frames when capturing the signal to a computer.

A time base corrector makes a useful companion to any

PC capture card, ensuring steady, stable pictures. It also

comes in useful at the ‘make tape’ stage, and can of

course be used with any linear editing system should you

wish. The TBC100 is a full frame digital time base

corrector in the style of a PCI card. It doesn’t actually connect to the PC (except as a power

supply), the styling is merely for ease of use. Simply fit into a spare slot in your computer,

connect power from a spare hard drive connector and it’s ready to go.Provides S-video and

composite connections, in and out

Camcorder and accessory supports

Monopods, tripods & video heads

Monopods

Considerably easier to transport than a tripod,

they are very good at taking the weight out of

holding the camcorder and minimising

camera shake. Very handy for work within

crowds of people as they are less likely to get

accidentally kicked or knocked, and they

make it very easy to change position and

reframe. Not much good though, if you want

to leave your camcorder running and get

yourself in the picture.

Monopods - do I need to buy a head?

Not necessarily — all monopods will screw

directly into the tripod bush on your

camcorder. It is really a matter of personal

preference, some people prefer to leave it at

that, others like to fit a tripod head onto the

monopod itself. Bear in mind that you gain a

fair degree of pan and tilt movement by just

rotating and leaning the monopod anyway.

MANFROTTO FIG RIG

CAMCORDER SUPPORT

A completely new kind

of camcorder accessory,

the FIGRIG combines a

circular frame with a

crossbar mount. This

allows the Fig Rig to

become part of the

body and produce

smooth, steady

travelling shots. It is this

very fact which is the

secret of the Fig Rig. As the operator walks,

his/her muscles and tendons absorb all the

shocks, transferring only fluid movements to

the camera. As there are no straps or

harnesses attached to the Fig Rig, quick and

wide movements can be made within the

same shot – from ground level to overhead –

in one smooth movement. The camera,

accessories and operator become one,

allowing you to film scenes quickly and

unobtrusively. The Fig Rig is a concept that is

non-traditional in design, but purely simple

and effective in use. The frame can also act as

a mount for any accessories including zoom

controllers, mics, mixers, lights, monitors,

arms... etc.

[FIGRIG] £189.00

523 LANC zoom controller for Sony and Canon GAMMA 80 LANC TRIPOD

The 523PRO remote control

works with both Sony and Canon

LANC-enabled video cameras.

The remote control features a

record/stop button, a power

on/standby button, three

different zoom speed control

buttons (slow, medium and fast)

and a push auto focus button.

The zoom wheel can be used to

control one of the three preset,

maximum zoom speeds or a

customisable maximum speed

which you can set to exactly the

level you want. For all zoom

speeds except the slowest preset

speed, you can choose between

progressive zoom speed (the

further you rotate the zoom

wheel, the faster the zoom) or

fixed zoom speed (irrespective of

the rotation applied to the

wheel, zoom speed remains

constant) by pressing the button

once (progressive) or twice

(fixed). The LED shows you which

speed you have selected. To set a

"custom" zoom speed, simply

hold the zoom speed button

until the LED flashes and use the

wheel to set your speed. The

setting remains in the unit's

memory until you decide to

change it. Whether you choose a

Choosing tripods

The function of a tripod is something

which will hold your camcorder or

camera nice and steady, and so it

follows that a big, heavy tripod will do

this job pretty well. Unfortunately, if

it’s so big and heavy that you can’t be

bothered to lug it about with you, it

will get very little use and so end up

having been a fair old waste of money.

Modern tripods have been designed to

provide maximum strength and

rigidity, whilst keeping weight to a

limited progressive zoom range

or a single fixed speed, the

features of the 523PRO mean you

can easily repeat zooms precisely

in subsequent takes of the same

shot. The 523PRO also allows you

to set left- and right-handed

operation by changing zoom

wheel direction. The push auto

focus button makes it very easy

to achieve in focus images when

working in manual focus mode.

You can also use the manual

focus in and out buttons and

change the focus direction.

523PRO does not come with any

parts to fit to the head, but

instead utilizes the pan bar clamp

that comes with all Manfrotto

heads.

[MN523PRO] £249.00

minimum, and so make them an item

that you will hopefully use more often.

Before you buy, have a think about;

• The size and weight of your

camcorder

• Your own height in relation to the

fully extended height of the tripod

• How heavy it is (can you

comfortably carry it?)

• How large it is. Is it mainly for

studio type work, or will it need to

fit in your gadget bag for holidays?

What should I look for when buying a bag?

The best starting point is to list all of your equipment, and then consider

which of it you would normally want to carry around with you. Your

needs would obviously differ between a day trip and a fortnights

holiday (which is why many people actually have two bags !). A

common list would include:

• Your camcorder - of course

• A couple of spare batteries

• A battery charger (car and/or mains)

• A spare blank tape

• A lens cleaning tissue or cleaning kit

• Silica gel sachets

• Some connecting leads and perhaps an RF modulator

• A telephoto or wide angle lens

• Filters

• A car power cord

Other considerations are in the material - does it need to be water

resistant - and the construction - does it need to be very well padded

(do you bungee jump?). If you’d like some help choosing why not give

us a call, we’ll do our best to help you decide.

Video format conversion

RGB TO S-VIDEO CONVERTOR

RGB is a great method of

sending video, with picture

resolution as good as s-video

and vastly superior to a std

composite signal. The problem

is not everything can accept an

RGB signal and often

composite is your only option.

Well, here's another problem

solved! This Box converts the

RGB scart output from Sky

Digital/OnDigital boxes and

DVD players into S-video plus

audio. Its ideal for making high

resolution connections to AV

amplifiers, SVHS/DVHS

recorders and Plasma screens.

Component, Y-U-V, Y-Pb-Pr? What exactly are you on about?

Component video is a high resolution video standard, sometimes referred

to as YUV, Y-Pb-Pr or even Y-Cb-Cr. The letters refer to the three

component parts that are combined to form the colour signal. It is similar

to, but nonetheless quite different from RGB, and can be best summarised

as follows:

Y-Cb-Cr is usually used when referring to an internal digital process (say

for example within the circuitry of a DVD player).

Y-Pb-Pr is the term used when referring to the signal external to that

process (say for example at the output terminals of the DVD player, or the

input terminals of a display device).

Y-U-V is usually found on older analogue equipment, eg BetaCam SP. YUV

signals are mathematically different from Y-Pb-Pr, so connecting a YUV

source to something expecting Y-Pb-Pr will produce discoloured results.

Keene component video equipment is designed to process Y-Pb-Pr

video, as this is now the most common standard for Home Cinema

applications using digital sources.
