Big Ass Light Test at EVS

Get Lit

  By: Chris Collins We decided to gather as many edison plug film lights and put them against one another.  We tested tungsten lights, LEDs, HMIs, and flourescents.  We kept it simple: we lit our subject, Simone, with each light without any diffusion and through a 2×3 silk.  Everything took place inside a 12×12 black duvatyne tent. Everything was shot on a Sony Fs100 with Metabones adapter and Zeiss ZE 35mm. Take a look...Read More

I/O Flare 2K SDI Camera

@MNS1974

Today I got the opportunity to check out the I/O Flare 2K SDI camera in person at Rule Boston Camera.  I saw the I/O camera line at Cinegear and thought it was interesting as I have always been keen to compact cameras that do not require CCU controls.  What sets the camera apart right off the bat is that the camera will do 4:2:2, 4:4:4 or RAW (Bayer).  The Iconix 2k and Toshiba lipstick...Read More

Cameras

I think this will be a great addition to the current Canon line up. The smaller sized mirrorless cameras are great Director’s cameras and can work well as a back up system or B camera.

New Canon EOS-M Mirrorless Camera Specs Announced. 18MP APS-C.

Cameras

Canon Rumors has the breakdown for the highly anticipated new Canon EOS-M Mirrorless camera. It will indeed have a S35 or APS-C sized sensor with a whopping 18MP. Video specs are good as well with 24P and the lame standard Canon 720 60P. Not quite on par with the Sony NEX 5N system yet. The only spec we have yet to get is price. If this puppy is sub $600 B/O then we may...Read More

New Canon Mirrorless Camera. The EOS-M and EF-M Lenses.

Cameras

  Canon Rumors announced a new mirrorless camera from Canon. The Canon M with EF-M Mount lenses. Let’s hope this is solid info. We could use a smaller form factor camera that will take Canon EF lenses for some time. Please give us a real S35 sensor and not that tiny size stuff! Here is a rip from the engadget post. “It was reportedly leaked by retail sites and captured by Digicame-info, and it appears...Read More
