Earlier today I posted an article about the upcoming Blackmagic URSA Mini that will be announced tomorrow morning. I noticed the banner hanging at NAB this afternoon (presumably being set up for tomorrow’s Blackmagic Design press conference), and it was clear right away that the URSA Mini would be making a lot of heads turn tomorrow. That said, […]Read more →
I just stopped by the convention center in Las Vegas to pick up my press pass for NAB and couldn’t help but notice this sign (pictured below), announcing the brand new Blackmagic URSA Mini! Tomorrow at 9:30am Blackmagic Design will be holding a press conference (which I will be attending) and I can only imagine […]Read more →
This year more camera manufacturers than ever are opting to announce new cameras right before NAB, as opposed to at the show itself. The latest camera to fall in this category would be the C300 Mark II which was officially announced today and has some impressive (but predictable) specs. In the near future I will […]Read more →
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 →
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 →
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 debate about which editing software is best has largely died down over the past year or so. Initially when FCP 7 was replaced by X, it took quite a while for the post-production world to stabilize… Some editors stuck with Avid, may former FCP 7 editors went with Premiere Pro, and a handful of others decided to give […]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 →
