Making network cables
Final Cut Pro works well to allow me to select the camera 4k video, and the audio file and synchronise. I can then choose any mix of the two sets of audio tracks on the composite clip. In practice, just picking the audio from the recorder.
I also managed to take most of this using a 100mm macro lens, on fixed focus. Very hard to do this all by yourself, as you can see from some of the positioning. This was after a couple of takes (which is not like me). I had to set f/32 to get focus to be OK, as auto-focus could not track may hands well enough, hence slightly grainy, but I think it looks good.
I suspect my next challenge will be lighting. It would have helped with the graininess.
See what you think - it is just an educational video on Making cat5e network cables, that is all.

You obviously haven’t come across EZ-CAT5 yet.ReplyDelete
Makes the job sooooooo much easier. Of course you do need an EZ-CAT5 crimp tool which trims the excess wire as you crimp. Video looked good though and the sound was quite free of room echo :)
If you are looking to make good quality sound recordings to go with your DSLR you might like this: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tascam-DR-60DMKII-DSLR-Sound-Recorder-WITH-OUR-3-YEAR-EXTENDED-WARRANTY-/291824227845?hash=item43f2145605:g:QEwAAOSw~OdVWhgw I found it on ebay the other day whilst browsing audio gear. I did see it for a much lower price, but forgot to bookmark / watch the item.ReplyDelete
Looks cool. Another option would be just getting a good mic for the camera.Delete
The DR-70 has built in MicsDelete
The video I see is "Sky Q Installer Menu".ReplyDelete
That is weirdDelete
And now the correct one.Delete
What I see is the Microsoft Technical Department video on http://www.revk.uk/ but when I go to http://www.revk.uk/2016/08/making-network-cables.html#comment-form I see the correct one.ReplyDelete
A suggestion - Shoot wider in 4k and then select the region of interest by cropping to an HD raster in the edit. You don't have to worry as much about focus or hand position then...ReplyDelete
I can't believe I've never actually put two and two together and realised that plugs and solid cored cable were never intended to work together #embarrassedbymyhackywiringReplyDelete
Well, they can - there are plugs that work with solid core, and plugs that work with either, but you have to check what plug you have. Even so, the flex is massively easier to work with when making patch leads!Delete
