edelkrone, the Turkish DSLR-rig manufacturer, has come up with a very interesting slider concept. A slider that lets your camera travel longer than the slider actually is in length.
edelkrone’s new funky invention isn’t cheap at $499, but the mechanism is an intriguing idea. When used on a tripod the slider can travel 1.7 inch (52cm) even though it’s only 1.3 inch (39cm) in length.
The way this works is that the slider base has a second slider sled that works in conjunction with the camera plate like a pulley tackle. ...

Recently the Yen prices for the new cameras have popped up (LINK) ahead of official announcement (apparently by mistake). A rough conversion of the prices gives us the following...
For many indie filmmakers the RED Scarlet-X is a powerful entry level 4K camera they can afford. Quite unknown is the fact that there’s a costly and complex process involved to transfer a RED camera to the next owner.
As some of you know we did quite a bit of testing on the RED Scarlet-X when it came out last year (LINK).
The cinema5D Scarlet-X video review was quite popular and we even shot a small no budget scene to test it (LINK).
It’s clear that the RED Scarlet-X is a powerful and nice camera. It’s wonderful to achieve this kind of quality on a true cinema camera that is affordable and comparably lightweight and small.
Every camera has downsides too, the pricepoint of the Scarlet is definitely something that makes many people hesitant when they compare it to a C300 or even a Blackmagic Cinema Camera.
It is known that the price for the Scarlet body alone will not get you a working camera, but you need some expensive additional items to have a working kit. Even with the recent pricedrops for SSD mags (LINK) the kit cost adds a considerable amount of dollars to a Scarlet order.
What most people don’t know (including myself until recently), is that there are additional costs involved when you decide to sell a RED camera:
There is a cost of around $1000 involved to transfer ownership to the new user. ...

Arri is one company that keeps being successful at what they do. Their stuff just works and is extremely reliable. They offer some of the best quality in our field of work and come up with new devices every year. Here’s a new lighting fixture that I found very intriguing.
The L7-C is an LED light that is built to imitate the characteristics of a typical fresnel lens. So it gives you the nice varying beam at a very low weight.
What is special about the L7-C is that you can tune in any color you desire which makes using gels obsolete and gives you full control over your image in a very simple and cost effective way. ...
As announced by Canon earlier this year the new firmware for your Canon EOS 7D is here.
The Canon 7D was released in fall 2009. Canon told us they are very proud about this camera and the technical internals which is also why its technology has been reused in so many of their later HDSLR’s and why it now gets its dedicated update.
The firmware 2.0.X is a substantial firmware update that also affects movie recording. It gives us manual audio controls....

John Hess from FilmmakerIQ had a conversation with Dan May from Blackmagic Design.
It has been awhile since a new camera has caused as much buzz as the new Cinema Camera by Blackmagic Design. The fact that it has not even been released yet has not stopped passionate opinions from all directions.
