It won’t be long before SSDs replace all spinning hard disc drives in all but very high-capacity, bulk data storage.
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.
When we review products we try to insist that they are shipping items and ready to be bought. The Sony FS5 was, we thought, in this category when we started to review it. Unfortunately the footage we recorded was all but unusable
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. The C300 was a startlingly successful camera, combining flexible handling with its modular design with fantastic image quality. They sold lots.
There is no obvious sound of relief in the voices of Maryann Brandon and Mary Jo Markey, the editors of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Along with the director, J.J. Abrams, of course, they felt the pressure of the fans’ expectations for this film, but the record breaking box-office and the generally positive reviews must have come as a welcome liberation.
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.
ADAM GARSTONE is on more familiar ground with the second part of his Resolve 12 review because it’s all about the grading, there’s not much new but what there is is worth the update.
The BBC may have problems, but making programmes isn’t one of them.
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.
In his book, ‘Adventures in the Screen Trade’, William Goldman states “…the single most important fact, perhaps, of the entire movie industry:”
“NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING.”
