Blackmagic John Brawley Shooting from the Hip Pocket (02:45)

Blackmagic John Brawley Shooting from the Hip Pocket (02:45) | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

Posted by John Brawley on May 26, 2013 • 


"I’ve been in deep pre-production for the second series of Puberty Blues.  We start shooting from Monday and it’s always really hectic in the last week of pre.  I’ve been pulling together my kit from the wonderful guys at Panavision and even though we shot with the Alexa last time a lot can happen in 12 months !  We’re up to V7 in the Alexa and the first season was shot using V4.


Also since then, Blackmagic have announced two new cameras.   So far on the second series of Puberty Blues we have two Alexas, A C300 (for surf footage in the water and slow mo) three BMCC’s and now a BMCC pocket.  I’ve been shooting a lot of tests this week and unfortunately I can’t share most of those with you, but I was able to steal a few minutes to shoot with the pocket with the SLR magic 25mm lens."

How Lenses Assist in Storytelling. Part One: Lens Internal Characteristics. By Shane Hurlbut, ASC (01:22)

Posted by Shane Hurlbut, ASC on May 29, 2013 • 

 

(...) "The camera is a tool, but the glass serves as your eyes into the story."

The lens’ traits can help tell your story. The look and feel of lenses, their characteristics of color and contrast rendition, are all relevant factors. For example, some lenses are cold, some have warmth, and many are yellow. My choice of lenses was paramount when I was slated to shoot The Greatest Game Ever Played. It was a period piece that took place between 1888 and 1912. Bill Paxton, the director, and I were both fans of the FSA (Farm Security Administration) photos featuring photographers Dorthea Lange and Walker Evans. They were mainly black and white images. There had just been some 1600 Kodachrome prints that were discovered in a trunk in someone’s attic, and they were reprinted in a book called Bound for Glory.


We chose this style to be the look of the movie. We worked to test every lens to try and recapture this imagery. We tried Panavision Primos, Cooke S4s, old Baltars, and Cooke Pancros. Ultimately, Bill Paxton and I settled on the Panavision Zeiss Ultra Speed Primes."

Shot on Canon C300: 'Blue is the Warmest Color', Cannes Palme d'Or Winner. By Joe Marine (3 Videos)

Shot on Canon C300: 'Blue is the Warmest Color', Cannes Palme d'Or Winner. By Joe Marine (3 Videos) | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

Posted by Joe Marine on May 29, 2013 • 


"The Cannes Film Festival has finally come to an end, and the festival’s top prize, the Palme d’Or, went to Blue is the Warmest Color (also known as La Vie d’Adèle: Chapitre 1 & 2). The film, a small intimate love story, made history for a number of reasons, including being the first Palme d’Or winner based on a graphic novel, as well as the first film shot on a Canon digital camera, specifically the Canon C300. Click through for more on the film and some clips below.

 

(...) While most previous Palme d’Or winners have been shot on film, the last two years have seen films shot only on digital — certainly a sign of the times. It’s definitely interesting that the production chose the C300, most likely for its ease-of-use, low-light abilities, and flexibility on set, as they recorded internally to CF cards."

Blast From the Past: High Quality Color Footage of New York City in the 1930s (02:50)

Posted by DL Cade on June 1, 2013 • 

 

"Color film first burst onto the scene in 1935 when Kodak introduced the world to Kodachrome, and the first of this film that was available to the public was the 16mm variety for home movies. Later, Kodak introduced similar 8mm and 35mm film for home movies and photography, respectively, but it was the 16mm film that had finally offered consumers the ability to easily capture their world in color for the very first time.


The above video is a rare clip released by the Romano Archives that shows what French tourist Jean Vivier was able to capture using the 16mm film all the way back in 1939, when he came to visit the Big Apple."

First Ultra HD player for the home goes on sale

First Ultra HD player for the home goes on sale | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

 

The company behind the Ultra HD/4K cameras responsible for the likes of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Spider-Man and House of Cards has launched the world's first Ultra HD capable machine for the home – and there's not a disc drive in sight.

 

Promising a BBC iPlayer-on-iPad style download service, the Redray 4k Cinema Player goes on sale this month for around £950 to become the first commercially available Ultra HD source.

 

It could effectively see the end of both Blu-ray and even the whole idea of the shiny disc itself.

Blackmagic Goes 4K with S35 Global Shutter Sensor for $4K, and a Pocket Cinema Camera for $1K. By Robert Hardy

Blackmagic Goes 4K with S35 Global Shutter Sensor for $4K, and a Pocket Cinema Camera for $1K. By Robert Hardy | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

Posted by Robert Hardy on April 8, 2013 • 

 

"We’ve all been speculating that this year’s NAB show would be a major one in terms of new cinema-style cameras at incredibly low price points. After Blackmagic Design shook up the cinema camera world last year, the market seemed destined for another company to swoop in an steal the BMCC‘s thunder. However, a photo of two brand-spankin’ new Blackmagic Cinema Cameras has been leaked, and it’s definitely real. It appears that Blackmagic has done it again, and their thunder is locked down in a vault that would leave even Danny Ocean and his team of 13 stumped. Check out the photo below for the limited details that we have at this point:"

Adobe Premiere Pro's New Features Push It Closer to 'Final Cut Pro 8' Wish Lists

Adobe Premiere Pro's New Features Push It Closer to 'Final Cut Pro 8' Wish Lists | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

 

Adobe is teasing some of its new Premiere Pro features just ahead of NAB 2013.

 

Over the past couple of years, Adobe has been doing a decent job of listening to customer feedback in adding features to Premiere Pro.

 

In many instances, these added features were simply standard features picked up from Final Cut Pro 7 – things that those switching to Premiere Pro instantly missed.

AbelCine’s New Family of Resolution Analysis Charts Designed by Jesse Rosen (05:11) | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

Posted by Jesse Rosen and Juliet McNally on May 31, 2013 • 

 

"When we planned the redesign of our Burbank facility, we set out to upgrade our rental department with the most state-of-the-art and efficient rental bays we could imagine. A large part of this was introducing a completely redesigned resolution chart specifically designed to meet the more stringent demands of today’s 4K digital cinema cameras and lenses. 


Jesse Rosen, AbelCine’s Director of Technical Development, designed the charts, beginning with extensive research on what to measure, the many patterns and designs to consider, and evaluating what worked and what didn’t.


Many of our specialists and rental technicians spoke with AbelCine clients and personnel to gather their opinions and input on what should be included in the new charts, and continued to check in every few weeks throughout the process."

RED Digital Cinema: "ISO Speed Revisited"

RED Digital Cinema: "ISO Speed Revisited" | 4k workflow | Scoop.it

Posted by RED Digital Cinema on April 3, 2013 • 

 

"Most are familiar with how ISO controls a camera’s sensitivity to light and susceptibility to film grain. However, ISO has other consequences with digital, and its implementation often varies. This article explores how ISO is evolving and influencing camera technique in the digital era.


BACKGROUND. With film, one had to select and load a specific magazine in advance, so the ISO speed had to remain constant. If the exposure needed tweaking afterwards, the film could be “pushed” or “pulled” during development. However, doing so was only practical within a limited range of effective sensitivities—otherwise colors, contrast, grain and other qualities would suffer.


With digital, ISO functionality has improved substantially. Camera hardware no longer has to be swapped out, so ISO has effectively become an in-camera exposure setting along with aperture and shutter speed."
