Ahead of me was an 8 ½ hour journey from New York to Canada, a three camera shoot in a studio I had never seen and no time to learn new equipment. I wanted to integrate a tapeless system to save time and have the project cut before I returned to Manhattan.

The goal was to leave on a Friday, complete everything on the road and be back by Monday. The Datavideo DN-300 helped make that happen.
The PortaBrace Director's Cut Series consists of specially modified versions of PortaBrace's most popular cases. Fine details such as soft deerskin suede accents, antiqued bronze-finish hardware, micro-suede lining, suede shoulder strap with memory foam core, and rubber Slip-Not (anti-slip) bottom are some of the enhancements over the traditional blue PortaBrace line.

You begin to witness scenes when the record button was unknowingly turned on; the harsh shadows because you shot directly into a light source; and the bad audio. The problems are endless and your captured audience wants to politely head for the door, feigning sickness or the need to feed the dog. Anything, just don't let me watch the cacophony on the screen.
