  • Samsung sells more devices that have cameras than the traditional "camera makers" combined, or very nearly. In any case, the public at large has its eyes more on phones than cameras.  Phone sales ...
  • Twins or triplets? The most tangible difference, if any, will be in the material and tooling of the gimbal and the adjustment screws and nuts. All require some careful setup and (perhaps ...
  • "More stable when shooting carefully" would seem to apply to any shots, with or without IS.  Of course, if you shoot wide, or brace the camera well, any shot will seem more steady. Comparing the ...
  • In the view of the public at large, photography merits little attention at all.  A clownish selfie or spectacular news, sports, cute animal or nature shot might merit a 5 second glance.  No care ...
  • No easy answers.   By itself, any camera will yield results far short of what you might aspire, for reasons the camera alone cannot overcome. Nearly all the old Hollywood dance musicals were shot ...
  • The alluded new 4k product from Panasonic could be other things. Perhaps: (1) 4k monitors or screens, which Panasonic would dearly like more people to buy,
  • Those are sufficient tools to develop your skills. It is possible, though difficult, to establish an audience and credibility based on work made skillfully with nothing more than what you already ...
  • If the 5D Mark IV captures 4k video in motion JPEG format, or simply feeds live RAW to an external recorder, it won't be anything you'd ever use to document your next typical whatever. Canon won't ...
  • There is good reason to grumble over a "prosumer" camera that can't be used properly without investing >10x the cost of the camera body for added gear. A bummer that neither the a7s nor the...

  • Unfair. Sony will certainly introduce at least one new E sytem lens over the next 5 years. Consider the plethora of lens options offered to NEX owners. Ho ho ho.

  • Historical painters bickered interminably over everything. Jealousy ruled. Leonardo kept Mona Lisa (a trans-gender self-portrait) hidden during his life. His contemporaries would have sneered or...

  • The gear set-up in the photo says it all: the camera body itself is a tiny, tiny component of what is involved in industrial-grade video productions. There is a geometric increase in direct cost...

  • External recording to ProRes would offer nothing unless the VG900 HDMI output were itself high bitrate and 4.2.2 sampling or higher.  Furthermore, if the VG900 uses pixel binning, the IQ is ...
  • Condolences to family of J. Foley, who took unimaginable risks for poor pay and worse odds. http://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/james-foley/did-british-jihadist-behead-journalist-james-foley-syria-n184686
  • Human beings do horrific things to eachother.  We are better at creating barriers to communication than in living peaceably.  We haven't the means to talk to many of our fellow humans.  Why try to ...
  • 4k video can be cropped and still look good when rendered to 1080p. Cropping is a standard tool in still photography, so why not video? In addition, 4k allows for more digital stabilization of...

  • Pick it up and go? Anyone? According to video reviews posted by "Cheesycam" and Tom Antos, the set-up and software configuration time requirements of the Came-TV 7500 are considerable. I'd guess ...
  • Moore wears protective garmants.  He is at risk of Ebola only if he touches infected people or somehow inhales their bodily fluids.  The biggest hazard is getting stuck in Liberia due to ...
  • Replied in EISA Awards...
    Enough categories so that every sponsor can have a winner.
  • Replied in GoPro Hazards?
    Don't think, "Gee, this might be dangerous."  Just follow the GoPro mantra, "What 'till they see this !" https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=NoSm5y_NjxQ Famous last words: ...
