Shooting RAW on the Canon 5D mark III DSLR is still very popular. You get stunning 14-bit moving images for a fraction of the price of a “real” RAW camera and the advantages of a full-frame sensor that is good in lowlight. But like many other shooters I learned that it’s not always a good idea to use the 5D mark III RAW for a project. Here I’d like to share some points to consider.
I recently wrote an article outlining the latest...
Nikon’s newest flagship DSLR was announced today: The new Nikon D4s shows balls in terms of video functionality and addresses many things that can only be desired on other DSLR’s. Let’s take a look: ...
Camera manufacturer Pentax (now Ricoh Imaging) has been rather quiet in terms of video functionality on their DSLR’s. With the new Pentax K-3 that brings a lot of innovation to the stills side the movie recording side has received some promising improvements as well. cinema5D took the Pentax K-3 for a spin and has some insights on its video capabilities. ...
Well, the title says it all. In terms of video quality Nikon just brought the best APS-C sensor VDSLR to the market.
The video is sharp out of the box, yet it has a very nice organic look. Well done Nikon!
Now, before you all run to buy this camera, you must know that it is one of the most frustrating devices to work with. Where should I start….
If you are working with electronic lenses, there is no easy way to change aperture....
One could certainly argue about which DSLRs are best for video, but it’s a fact that these three are the most popular and still valid choices in 2013. This makes today’s big discount on these cameras at B&H a very welcome one.
These after cart checkout deals will show up once you start the payment process.
[UPDATE]: B&H has now also added a deal for the Canon EOS 6D. The 6D has some aliasing issues but does have a large sensor just like the 5D if that look is what you’re into:
(Note: The offers end on October 26th) ...
John Brawley, an Australian director of photography who helps Blackmagic with the development of their Cinema Cameras, has just released the first footage from the much-anticipated Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. He used it for “about an hour” at his local market and put together some shots in Final Cut Pro X.
It’s impressive that this tiny sub-$1,000 camera is able to record in ProRes (he used the ProRes film mode) with 13 stops of latitude with a Super 16mm sensor.
Lenswise he used an IS stabilized Micro 4/3 lens, the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8, plus a Hoya ND16.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera is available for preorder from B&H – link see below! ...
Leica M type 240- video review.
(Non of the written here is relevant to the photo section of this camera)
Deep into the 4th year of the HDSLR revolution Leica released the M 240, their full frame camera costing $6950.
Spending a day with the camera left me wondering, was Leica ever talking to any professional cameraman before implementing HD recording for this unit or just decided to “join a trend” without really meaning this camera to be a capable working video tool?.
In my opinion the video quality coming out of the camera is very disappointing and its operation in video mode is not easy/logical. I hope features/video quality can be enhance with a firmware update. ...
