Don't tell Yamaha but these music mixers are perfect for your video edit suite and an absolute bargain, says ADAM GARSTONE.
It’s fair to say that Sony’s PXW-FS5 caused a lot of excitement when it was launched. Here’s a small, lightweight, 'interchangeable lens' camcorder based around the same S35, 4k sensor as the FS7 – which means it’s the same as the F5. And that’s a very nice camera indeed.
Originally launched with just three lenses, Schneider’s range of mid-priced primes, designed to cover full-frame 35mm, continues to expand. Though the lenses have been around for a while, having a Canon C300 Mk II on test was a good opportunity to have another quick look.
I’m not sure that owners of the Mark I version of Canon’s C300 were particularly suffering, but it’s refreshing that a company, named after someone who had twenty two ears, has listened to its customers.

At SkyOptics we’ve been waiting eagerly for the release of this DJI camera upgrade. As photographers, whilst the X3 does a great job, it does sometimes feel as you have one hand tied behind your back and you’ve sometimes got to work hard to get the results you want.
Panasonic, it seems, are big fans of Pimp My Ride. In that show, rapper Xzibit would pick a person to have their car ‘pimped’ by a custom body shop, West Coast Customs. Think lots of carbon fibre and a garish paint job.
With the release of the 8K camera due very soon, here at Definition Magazine we are running a short series of articles based on RED cameras.
Schneider’s decision to make a range of add-on lenses for the iPhone seemed odd, to say the least. But then Bentley choose to use the iPhone 5, equipped with Schneider’s iPro Lenses, to shoot their 2014 commercials, so maybe the decision wasn’t so odd after all.
Digital cinema innovators Radiant Images has completed comprehensive comparison and evaluation tests on 16 of the most popular digital cinema cameras.
ADAM GARSTONE has been smitten with the new Canon XC10 4k camera but he’s not sure why. It is odd but in a good way and it even mimics Canon Log. Perhaps then not the bride but a plucky bridesmaid.
