Photo Gear

by Scott Gentry

Scott Gentry started his career as a child actor then moving to ABC All My Children first in production straight out of college, then in front of the camera for a short stint as a regular walk-on (woo-hoo!). Scott also worked the stadium camera for NY Jets and Giants games, as well a a multitude of events at the Meadowlands arena in NJ. From there he got into publishing and 6 months after sending his resume to DV magazine, he was the publisher. DV went from last to first place and Scott moved on to AV Video Multimedia Producer and led the team...

canon 5d multicamera

Editing a multicamera concert shot on Canon 5Ds

Scott Simmons tells all, and the results are fantastic

By Scott Gentry | March 03, 2010

It's no secret that Canon 5Ds are everywhere. They've shot music videos, short films, commercials and more Vimeo videos than anyone can imagine. One place where I haven't heard about a lot of usage (as of yet anyway) is in multicamera concert production. There's very real reasons why you wouldn't want to use any small-form-factor DSLRs (with no gen lock, timecode input or external monitoring) in a multicam production. But that doesn't mean that they can't get the job done. Read the rest on ProVideo Coalition. Read More


aperture 3

Aperture 3.01 update released, update on my iPhoto ‘09 migration

New Aperture addresses many known issues, doesn't fix my colossal mistake

By Scott Gentry | March 02, 2010

Over on our sister site ProVideo Coalition, Mike Curtis has a great article about his move to Aperture 3. Here's a taste:Two things:1.) Apple today released Aperture 3.0.1, addressing many of the issues I raised with version 3.02.) I've been busy on my iPhoto ‘09 to Aperture 3.0 upgrade saga, but did something incredibly dumb, losing me hundreds of hours of effort.Executive brief: Apple today released Aperture 3.0.1 fixing many known issues (no guarantees/reports it fixes'em all), and I was stupid and deleted a crucial file, aka the critical and massive iPhoto Library I'd been working on. Remember, kids - your time is more valuable than the cost of yet another hard drive, and the 5 minutes it takes to set up a backup copy rolling before leaving for the night. Even for personal projects. Shut up. It was late. I was on the phone. I was busy. I wish I'd been drinking.Read the rest of ProVideo Coalition Read More

Heading to Vancouver for Two Events

What do you bring when you want to shoot video and photos, but need to pack light?

By Scott Gentry | February 13, 2010

My wife happens to work for an Olympic sponsor and I was lucky enough to tag along in Beijing, and now I'm prepping to leave for a quick three day, two event romp to Vancouver.The trip this time presents some unique challenges in terms of weather, logistics and my personal shot goals. The first thing I needed to consider is TSA flight requirements and what I'd have to check, vs. carry on. Additionally I needed to check Olympic guidelines for any restrictions on equipment at events. So far I'm in luck as the international carry-on rules seem to have settled a tad since Christmas. Additionally, according to, it seems that as long as I'm not re-broadcasting live, I am OK. There are some restrictions there, but nothing I can't overcome. Read More
