Over the past couple of years I’ve been shooting with Rokinon Cinema Lenses, and have been quite impressed with the results. I’ve been wanting to do a review on these lenses for a while, but held back because I was missing a key lens in the kit – the 50mm, which I just recently picked up. So finally, I’m […]Read more →
Kipon recently announced an active EF to Micro Four Thirds lens adapter that may just become one of the most useful tools for MFT shooters that own Canon glass. Up until now, the Metabones Speedbooster was your best bet when it came to adapting EF lenses to MFT bodies, but this new adapter from Kipon is giving it […]Read more →
If you’ve been following along with this series of posts, you likely already know that I am in development for a feature film titled “Ivy”. At this point the screenplay is complete (the first draft at least), I’ve put together a visual pitch package, and most recently just shot a mood film to help convey the […]Read more →
Yesterday I sat down with Dave Thies of Tvacom to record a quick podcast on exposure techniques in cinematography. Dave is an awesome Director/DP that works on some major network television shows and always has a lot of great insight on all things film related… In the future Dave and I will be doing actual video […]Read more →

Naturally, new camera announcements always draw the most attention, and with the internet exploding with new gear reports every two minutes a lot of news got swept under the rug. That said, the new iteration of […]Read more →
Another quick update from the NAB showroom floor – I just finished chatting with a rep from Panasonic who had a number of Lumix GH4’s rigged up with anamorphic lenses, running the highly sought after V-Log cinema profile. For those of you that don’t know, V-Log is essentially a very flat picture profile that may become available for the […]Read more →
I’ve had a love/hate relationship with RED for a long time. My first proper narrative film was shot on the RED One, and since then I’ve shot countless projects on the Scarlet, Epic and Dragon – usually having a solid experience with their gear. That said, in recent years I have been less impressed with their offerings and […]Read more →
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 →
