  • I bought an air conditioner that has a UK plug, but I live in the U.S. The plug looks like -.- but my outlet looks like I.I Help!!?

    Best answer: If the plug doesn't have the standard plug, then it's done on purpose because you can't just plug that device into a normal outlet and have it work. And whatever you do don't just cut off the plug and wire on a new one; talk to an electrician. If it looks like a US plug just with the pins turned,... show more

    If it looks like a US plug just with the pins turned, then it should be a 240V 15A and you'd need to have an outlet wired to match. If it really is a UK plug (which are much bigger than US plugs) then you'd still need to have an outlet wired as UK uses 240V for everything.

  • Are there any Cinema (Cine) lens out there that will fit a Canon Rebel T5i DSLR?

    Best answer: You aren't shopping for a specific camera, you are shopping for a lens mount. In this case, Canon EF or EF-S. Any EF or EF-S lens, from any maker, will work on your camera. Don't cripple your searches by putting in the camera model, all you need is Canon EF to find what you need.

I have a ceche PlayStation 3 and I use the AV setting on my TV.

  • Can you put a higher amp fuse into an extension lead socket to use a washing machine or other high powered machines?

    Or maybe the fuse should go in the plug of the machine. But the socket of my lead has started to melt.

I know you should never use a washing machine with an extension lead but otherwise it means traveling to the Letting Agent to but electricity cards only they have and anyway I can't stand them and I want as little to do with them as possible. my previous cable seemed to work fine had to change it, potential trip hazard. know any types of extension leads that will work? Everyone uses extension leads for the same reasons but there's no real communication amongst tenants just pleasant hellos.

  • Recording using a camera and plug in mic, but no sound comes out when I play it back?

    Best answer: Most likely you fell into the trap of buying an electret or condenser mic, both of which need power, either from a cell inside the mic itself or "phantom", which the camera is unlikely to provide (some do, though). A dynamic mic needs no power and should work with your camera without any difficulty.... show more

    I have to applaud you for experimenting first ---
    most people start shooting video with no thought at all for audio problems,
    then when they find they didn't get any sound
    they come here crying their fool heads off about it.

  • What is the best film making camera out there for an affordable price?

    Best answer: We don't know if you already have: Microphones (there is no single best mic - it depends on the scene). At a minimum, a shotgun (condenser) mic and a couple of wireless lavalieres. Just this could use your entire $850 budget. I use Audio Technica, Sennheiser and Sony (professional) mics and lavs. Audio... show more
    Best answer: We don't know if you already have:
    Microphones (there is no single best mic - it depends on the scene). At a minimum, a shotgun (condenser) mic and a couple of wireless lavalieres. Just this could use your entire $850 budget. I use Audio Technica, Sennheiser and Sony (professional) mics and lavs.

    Audio recording system: I use a Zoom H5.

    Lighting: I use a couple of on-camera LED lighting systems... and if needed, have a couple of light trees and six PAR56 cans with dimmer system and gel sets.

    Steadying devices: I use Davis & Sanford ProVista tripods, a Steadicam Solo with vest and articulated/counter balanced arm and a Kessler 8 foot camera crane mounted to a K-Pod tripod and Hercules head... and thinking about some sort of slider system.

    Editing is done with Final Cut Pro running on a 27" iMac and 24" Acer monitor connected to the iMac. Video project files are stored on an external 4-bay JBOD hard drive array - each bay has a 4TB hard drive...

    Throw in some cables, high capacity batteries, memory cards, external Delvcam camera-mount 7 inch video monitors, Pelican cases, 12 foot square green screen background, teleprompter, boom pole, and a few other items...

    Assuming you have at least some of the above, great... or if you have a different budget for the above, awesome. For $850, you are in the mid range of consumer camcorders. There is no dSLR that will do what you want. See what Canon or Sony has at your budget. You are nowhere close to "professional grade" - that said, a pro will learn to use the equipment available and understand not to use it outside its limitations.

    Someone with experience and skill can turn out great stuff with inexpensive gear. Someone with no experience can have the most expensive gear available and turn out garbage.

    The video capture/storage is only one part of an entire system of stuff that all needs to work together... Forgot to mention... I really like my Sony PXW-Z150... and yes, video is my hobby.

    If your stated budget is for "everything", you are getting only a camcorder and somehow think that is all you need, then the only thing I can do is wish you "good luck - you're going to need it."
