BACK FOCUS CHART:
Ensuring critical back focus is crucial for today’s high definition cameras. This easy to use Back Focus Chart is a valuable tool that will help you set your camera’s back focus.
This Slate was designed for slating interviews, and has fields for documenting the most commonly needed information for post-production or future reference. Don’t waste your time in post-production looking for proper spellings and titles of interviewees. Slate it on-site and confidently move on knowing that it can be recalled in post production as easily as the interview you are shooting.
Production situations vary, and so can the information needed for slating. This card is useful area for documenting shooting conditions, type of camera used, FPS, picture profiles, changes made to default styles, “best take” indications, messages to the editor, and shooter contact information. It’s up to you how this is used.
