Auto-Tilt & Pan Intervalometer for Affordable Time-Lapse and Motion-Controlled Video Production: Astro

From Kickstarter another great gizmo for video-makers and photographers: "Astro adds pan & tilt movement to your camera, and it allows you to set up time lapse programs by defining the duration, the range of movement; which goes from 0 to 360°, and the interval in degrees or seconds in which you want the photos to be taken."

 

"The most intuitive, compact and simple intervalometer + motion control for timelapse photography"

Cinema-Quality Video Shooting Now Accessible To All: The 2.5K Blackmagic Cinema Camera

Cinema-Quality Video Shooting Now Accessible To All: The 2.5K Blackmagic Cinema Camera | Heron | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera, is a 2.5K/1080HD camcorder that records uncompressed RAW, ProRes and DNxHD and features a built-in SSD-based video recorder that costs $2,995.

 

Key features include:
-> Super wide 13 stops of dynamic range
-> Opitcal sensor is a Micro 4/3" (refrigerated for low noise)
-> On-board solid state recorder
-> Built-in Thunderbolt connectivity
-> 3 Gb/s SDI output
-> a copy of UltraScope for waveform monitoring
-> a full copy of DaVinci Resolve (a $995 value right there).

 

"You also get a nifty touchscreen display, newsworthy in its own right, that combines the form factor of an external recorder with the ease of an iPhone or iPad.

...

Blackmagic has worked very closely with Apple for some time, evident in Blackmagic's streamlined designs and user interfaces, as well as the company's embrace of ProRes and Thunderbolt.


"This camera, like the other devices announced during the show, will connect directly to FCPX. Metadata will be king."


...The only early test footage out there is on Vimeo and comes from Australian cinematographer John Brawley, who continues to shoot internal engineering tests for Blackmagic.

...

Depending on the setup or your perspective, it can look like a DSLR-type camera, a studio camera—like the configuration shown above (there's also an optional sunvisor)—or a handheld camera that is balanced by another cleverly designed Blackmagic handle rig (top)...


Blackmagic is positioning its new camera directly at high-end television commercials, episodic television and feature films."
