Blackmagic Design has released firmware version 1.5 for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera, enabling the camera to record in Cinema DNG Raw....
Adobe is fulfilling promises of significant, regular updates to their Creative Cloud software products. Version 7.1 has just been released for Premiere Pro, boasting new features such as native CinemaDNG editing and seamless integration with SpeedGrade.
The above video provides a fantastic overview of some of the new features in the update. Here’s a break down of the featured updates:...
The successful line of cinema EOS camera that currently includes the C100, C300 and C500 will receive some updates during Q4 2013.
Here’s what we’re going to see: CONCERNING ALL C CAMERAS: - ISO range will be upgraded to go until 80,000 (currently 20,000, meaning additional stops). - magnify portion will be movable through whole image like on DSLR’s. - compatibility with GPS module. ...
Canon have released firmware update 126.96.36.199 for the EOS C100, which now features continuous focus tracking of moving subjects and XLR modification.
Our friends over at Planet5D picked up on this first, with one of their moderators commenting on the functionality of the feature:
“OK I downloaded it and installed it on the C100 just before the camera left our building and did some very quick tests using the 18-135mm STM lens. The AF in Focus Lock mode was very fast and smooth. Much better than before.
AF in Continuous mode (which is accessible as a setting in the camera menu) is fully continuous which means it keeps focusing without any interaction.
The One Shot (focus lock) AF mode still requires you to push the Focus button on the front of the camera body.
In my initial test, I was very impressed with the speed and smoothness of the Continuous Focusing. It was very good in very low light, and would probably be even better in good light. It seemed to track a moving person diagonally very well, which is not easy for most contrast detection systems.”...
In a new marketing effort Apple promotes Final Cut Pro X‘s strengths to win back professionals.
When Apple released their completely reworked editing software Final Cut Pro X in 2011 many users and lots of professionals were upset as the previous Version 7 was abandoned.
You might remember that Final Cut Pro X was often referred to as “iMovie Pro” because it lacked many features required by professionals and offers a more automated approach to editing. Some have switched to a different editing system, others are still using Final Cut Pro 7, but many have remained skeptical. ...
You might have heard or experienced the issue yourself: Some wide angle lenses can’t be focused to infinity on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. This issue has now been addressed, but the solution won’t make current owners happy.
Blackmagic has been looking into the issue last month when it was reported. See a sample on one of the affected lenses (Tokina 11-16mm) below. ...
When the Sony FS700 came out they also announced a firmware update to unlock its 4K mode, making the camera “future proof” in a way. With the F5 and F55 Sony also announced the 4K solution for the FS700, but this looks a lot more costly than expected.
Recently the prices for Sony’s AXS-R5 recorder leaked on Sony’s Japenese coming in at about $5800 excluding tax (after Yen conversion). Apparently it is also necessary to get a special module called HXR-IFR5 (as seen on the left) to get 4K RAW via 3G HD-SDI out of the FS700 (at 59.94p max). ...
In September we’ve received information that due to production problems the Blackmagic Cinema Cameras are delayed once again. New information reveals that the wait may be even longer.
Kristian Lam from Blackmagic Design posted a statement on the Blackmagic forum concerning the current status. While it’s certainly positive that the company is so open regarding the situation, it’s frustrating for quite a lot of people who have bought the camera half a year ago and can download software updates for a device that’s not here yet. ...
