“ENG Essentials” is a new series of articles and videos aimed at assisting anyone who owns a professional video camera. At Abel, we support camera owners everyday and this is just another way of us extending our service to you.
In the first part of this series, I will be covering the process and art of matching cameras. I will show how I adjust one camera to match, or at least come close to, the look of another. This is an essential process when working with multiple cameras, and your editor will praise you for it. I’ll be using DSC Labs Charts, Leader scopes, and our custom built white sphere to match the cameras. And to make this really challenging, I will be matching a Sony PMW-EX3 to a Panasonic Varicam 3700! The series will be in three parts: White Shading, Gamma Matching, and Color Matching. So stop by again soon to check on my progress.
The White Shading & White Offset Seciton is now online.
