High dynamic range cameras have been all the rage lately, and for good reason. Arri set the gold standard for DR with their Alexa a few years back, and today just about everyone wants to shoot with a camera that can pull 13 or 14 stops of dynamic range. Unfortunately though, not everyone owns an Alexa (or […]Read more →
The original Panasonic Af100 was a great camera in it’s day, but it never really lived up to it’s potential. Right around the same time the AF100 was released, the Canon 5D MK II was making waves in the industry and there was a huge shift in the low-budget indie filmmaking scene – moving away […]Read more →
Over the last couple of weeks I have been testing out the brand new Samsung NX1 4K camera, which all in all I have been very impressed with. The NX1 was generously loaned out to me by B & H last month, and it was really a treat to get my hands on it so early on so that I […]Read more →

If you aren’t already familiar with Kinefinity – they are a Chinese camera manufacturer that has recently been releasing some very affordable, feature rich digital cinema cameras. Last year they announced their first 6K capable camera: The KineMAX 6K – which looks really impressive on paper, and should be made available shortly. Although their cameras […]Read more →
So many big camera announcements and rumors have been floating around over the last few weeks, and perhaps the biggest of them all came today: The Arri Alexa Mini. For many, this is the camera everyone has been waiting for. There is no denying that the Arri Alexa has the best digital image quality of […]Read more →
Practically every editor and filmmaker I know has had a copy of DaVinci Resolve on their laptop since the free version was made available. Unfortunately though, most Resolve users are only using the software on it’s most basic level and haven’t yet discovered how powerful some of it’s basic features are – including Layer Nodes.
