Certainly you can shoot with more than one camera using green screen. But you need to light your screen evenly. (kino flos) You need good separation between talent and screen and between cam and talent. You need to light your talent and include a

I use the mix pre-d for all the beginner classes - when we are shooting in 3-5 teams. I find, by the way, that cheaper gear makes out far worse than pro gear. But in my advanced class, i bring out the bigger guns. We use prosumer level cams, 302 m

The Ki Pro Mini uses the format Mac OS Extended (HFS+) on CF cards. Use a USB Connected CF card reader to a Mac. Use Disc Utility to format the CF card and then insert into the Ki Pro Mini and let the device re-format again. That should solve it.

I think if you want variable gain then you should attach a small mixer like a Sound devices mix pre. I think the camera input should remain constant and then you can adjust how much more you want at the mixer level. I agree that it's nice to be
