"I return to the doddleTALKS Tech podcast on episode 17. We discuss the approach to selecting cameras for Need for Speed, and by testing those cameras, how we found that they each had their own unique digital emulsion. It’s about each camera’s unique abilities and how to use those abilities to your advantage. Part of the challenge on Need for Speed is also managing the process of shooting with eight or nine cameras at one time. Today (April 30), we are on day 21 of the film and love the Canon 4k camera systems."
By tightly controlling the focus, shutter speed, and angle of light, his Macrowave shots look sculptural, as if the waves had been carved of ice or glass. Much like a tilt-shift photograph can make a huge scene look small and ...
Some viewers might have seen photographs by Igor Moukhin in 2010 as part of the exhibition Photographie de la nouvelle Russie 1990-2010 at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie, presented as part of a year devoted to covering Franco-Russian...
"So it’s time to look at some footage from the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera.
This footage was shot over about an hour at my local market on Sunday morning. So yeah, it’s just home movies. I was literally grabbing shots where I could whilst I was shopping ! But, you do get to see what one man can do with a pocket cinema camera and a 12-35 Panasonic m4/3 zoom. I guess for those that like to shoot discretely, guerrilla or documentary style, this will give you a good sense of what you’re going to get. The same great DR and look has been inherited from the BMCC.
All this footage was shot using the FILM look. I set my exposure by ETTR and using the 100% zebra to indicate clipping. I had IS on all the time. I had a Hoya ND16 on as well to keep me at a slightly nicer stop. I set the rear monitor to VIDEO and then used focus peaking all the time."
Here are some great news to start off the week. The team at Magic Lantern - Canon's unsupported firmware just shared an interesting bit of information. They were able to use the firmware to pull uncompressed RAW video from Canon's 5DmkIII.
Not so long ago, Olympus updated both the E-PL series (E-PL5 reviewed here) and the E-PM series with the OM-D’s sensor and other trickle-down technology. Thus it only made sense that it was also about high time for the E-P3 to be refreshed, too. They’ve taken a bit longer over this one; in fact, the new E-P5 has so much of the OM-D’s technology (and a few other things) that picking one over the other is no longer such an easy decision.
Power is a necessity in today's modern world. Most of us take for granted the work that it takes to build and maintain the power grid that supplies us with the electricity that powers our lives. Storm Soldiers is a film about the men who make it all happen. The linemen who work tirelessly behind the scenes so we can power our computers, heat our homes and light our lives. Danger is around every corner for linemen and the job is constantly on the top ten list for most dangerous jobs. This film is a tribute to the men and women that literally put their lives on the line everyday.
I’ve been looking forward to writing this post about one of my favorite spots of this season, “Djesus Uncrossed”. First I should acknowledge that this was, by far, the most controversial spot I’ve been a part of in my history with the show. Religious groups were infuriated while pop artists were inspired to create fan-art....
