GoPro HERO4

GoPro HERO4 | Indie Filmmaking | Scoop.it

GoPro has announced their latest action camera, the HERO4, in both Black and Silver editions, along with the Hero, an entry-level GoPro. The kind folks at GoPro invited me to try out these cameras last week, in an
activity-filled day in San Francisco.

A Camera and a Culture

At the Hero3 launch event two years ago, I was struck by how different my reaction was from other camera announcements:

This @GoPro Hero 3 demo reel is making me feel like I’ve wasted my life by not wasting my

Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review: Digital Photography Review

Samsung NX1 First Impressions Review: Digital Photography Review | Indie Filmmaking | Scoop.it

Samsung has been pretty inventive in the digital camera world. It was the first to offer an really extensive Wi-Fi system (which continues to this day), Android-based cameras (though Nikon launched a model at about the same time), and arguably the first dedicated 'selfie cams' with its DualView models.

The company has yet again come up with something new, this time in the enthusiast mirrorless space. For the first time ever, Samsung has managed to create an APS-C-sized, 28MP CMOS sensor that's backside illuminated. BSI sensors move all the circuitry behind the light-capturing part of the sensor which, well, allows it to capture more light, improving low light performance and reducing noise. Until now, the largest sensor with backside illumination was 1"-type (around 1/3rd the size of APS-C).

The NX1 sits in a crowded field of excellent cameras - both DSLR and mirrorless - such as the Nikon D7100, Canon EOS 7D Mark II, Panasonic DMC-GH4 and Fujifilm X-T1. Each of these models has its own appeal, whether it be the excellent video specification of the Panasonic, the compactness of the Fujifilm or the all-round capability of the Nikon. While they share similar price tags and build quality and aim for broadly the same audience, the NX1 has quite a few tricks up its sleeve beyond its clever sensor, to try to break into that respectable club.

Jeremy Wilker's insight:

another 4k-capable camera. aps-c sensor (aka Super35), with backside illumination. in terms of video, it can do DCI 4k and UHD 4k and has the new h.265 codec for efficiency. only 4:2:0 8-bit output over the HDMI port, though.

The Easiest Way to do a 4K Screening

The Easiest Way to do a 4K Screening | Indie Filmmaking | Scoop.it
Our 4K screenings look better, sound better, and we have almost no room for technical issues because we do things this way.
Jeremy Wilker's insight:

true. ask your film festival if you can just send them a quicktime file. I know of a few that project direct from files on a computer and it works/looks great.

Convergent Design ships Odyssey 7 and offers new features via firmware for 7Q

Convergent Design ships Odyssey 7 and offers new features via firmware for 7Q | Indie Filmmaking | Scoop.it

The Convergent Design Odyssey7Q can now shoot 4K RAW at 100 or 120fps in burst modes with Sony’s FS700. The other big feature is the ability to finally use monitoring look up tables (LUTs) when dealing with Log footage from Canon, Arri and Sony cameras. Lastly my pet hate on the Odyssey – the playback interface has been completely re designed. 

In addition to the firmware changes to the 7Q Convergent Design have also started to ship their lower model – the Odyssey7. Looking the same externally as the 7Q it has the same 1280×800 OLED display and image analysis tools like waveform and histogram. What changes is the lack of any RAW or 4K recording functionality – the 7 is currently purely a HD ProRes recorder. This brings the recommended price down by $1000 to $1295 US.
