Broadcast lenses are very forgiving. I prefer Sony cameras with Canon digital lenses because I have their OSD focus readout memorized in relation to feet. Plus the internal focus motor on those lenses are buttery smooth. You can't get that with external motors. My analog BFD is not precise enough for me to be comfortable with live focus pulls on the big stuff.
For me, the pressure on an NBC Sports caliber stage is non existent because I've been doing it for 4 years. I can imagine the pressure on an Idol type show, because I remember my first time jitters on NBC. I'd love to be on that caliber of stage one day, and feel that pressure again. The adrenaline certainly makes the rig feel lighter! I've gotta think guys like Tore and John are immune to it now.
Anyone dig up a link to the shot?
