A few weeks back I was asked to shoot a promo piece for a local LA model who needed content for her new website. This was a very small project I shot/edited with no crew, and had the intention of also showing in here on the blog to discuss slow motion work on the GH4. I […]Read more →
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 →
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 →
I get asked a lot of questions about the GH4, but perhaps the most common question recently has been “What does the 4K mode on the GH4 do?”, and I finally wanted to address that here today. Throughout this post, I’m going to outline exactly what the 4K Photo mode is intended to do, and how […]Read more →
The 50mm focal length has always been one of my favorites. On a full frame or Super 35mm camera a 50mm lens will act as a beautiful ‘normal’ length lens, closely resembling the field of view of the human eye, while on crop sensor cameras (such as Micro Four Thirds) they become excellent telephoto or portrait […]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 →
Last week Canon slashed their prices yet again on the C100 and C500, making both cameras more affordable than ever. This is great news for anyone in the market for a new cinema camera from Canon, and very well may also indicate a shift in the company’s overall strategy. I’ve been a fan of Canon’s cinema cameras for a little […]Read more →
2014 was a big year for camera releases, especially in the DSLR/DSLM world. The Lumix GH4 and Sony A7S largely stole the spotlight, with both cameras offering incredible image quality, 4K capabilities, and loads of other great video features that got filmmakers everywhere excited… But one camera that hasn’t had as much buzz as we’ve seen […]Read more →
As many of you know, I am someone that is particularly obsessed with the ‘film look’. Much of my directorial work is narrative based, and as such I am naturally drawn to a more cinematic look as it is often conducive to the dramatic stories that I like to tell. And although I am far […]Read more →
So many younger cinematographers today have come up during the DSLR revolution, and as a result have never used lenses that feature T-Stop markings. DSLR lenses are of course intended for stills photography first and foremost, and the standard measurement of aperture in photography has always been an F-Stop. In film however, aperture is measured in T-Stops which […]Read more →
