Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q Prototype hands on.

@MNS1974

The other day I got my hands on the yet unreleased Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q RAW recorder / monitor.  The prototype was 75% there but this one was specifically set up for getting 2K out of the FS700. The quality of the screen is pretty impressive on the unit at 1280 x 800….Well its actually 1280 x 700 as 100 of the lines are used for menu items.  Remember the 7Q is actually a...Read More

Adobe Releases Major Update to Premiere CC

Just the Cut / Nate Weber

Adobe is holding true to their promise to release regular updates to Creative Cloud. Premiere got its first boost today. The July Premiere Pro CC Update has 25 all new features and addresses the devastating multi-cam bug that plagued many. It’s a great update no doubt, but some of these features merely fix stupid issues that didn’t need to exist in the first place. Among my favorite corrections is with the Title tool. Duplicating...Read More

The New Digital Cinema Race

Cameras / Just the Cut / Nate Weber

It seems like the 4K acquisition leap is inevitable, Blackmagic will have a $4,000 4K camera later this month if all goes well, Sony and Canon both have multiple 4K options at different price points. JVC even decided to embarrass themselves with a poke at 4K. Phantom has 4K at 1000fps! RED is pushing out it’s 6K upgrade in September, and Arri has grumpily stepped up to the 4K plate. The playing field is level once...Read More

Rebooting Hollywood: What’s Broken?

Nate Weber / Rebooting Hollywood

Reports of Hollywood’s implosion have been greatly exaggerated. Hollywood is not dying or imploding. It’s thriving despite it all. I’m sorry to break it to you all, but just because Steven Spielberg almost didn’t get Lincoln on the big screen and Disney is trying to dig Bruckheimer and Depp a grave to hide The Lone Ranger in does not mean Hollywood is imploding. Despite all the doom and gloom about recent blockbusters, June 2013...Read More

Canon C500 with Ki Pro Quad

@MNS1974

Back in the fall of 2012 I bought a C500 and was instantly slammed by all my friends who own a Red Epic etc.  I saw some big potential in the C500 but was for the most part flying blind with very little hands on time with it before its release.  Everyone said it doesn’t even record 4K in camera and its only 10bit, etc.  The internal record point did not bother me as...Read More
