First, I need to share a
with you. Apparently, Final Cut Pro X 10.4 has problems with
cameras. Three readers have alerted me to situations where working with BPAV folders in Final Cut Pro X 10.4 has caused significant crashes; especially if you use spanned files.

Digital Production Buzz
had an interesting show on
this last week. We talked with folks that rent via the web, face-to-face and a fascinating discussion on working with a rental house. Clearly, with the amount of technological change today - especially with cameras - rentals are more attractive than ever. This show is well worth your time to listen.
