First Look Snap Focus Follow Focus At EVS.

Cameras

I got to check out the new Snap Focus follow focus system designed by Brandon David Cole at EVS. The bicycle lever style follow focus is a completely new way to pull focus and adjust zoom. The lever system works both ways to adjust focus near and far respectively. I found the system to be very intuitive and the ergonomics quite good. I prefer a more traditional follow focus system but I can see...Read More

Gear is not a bad four letter word: The story vs gear argument

@MNS1974

I like to talk tech.  Its something I have always done.  I used to take cameras apart and put them back together without leftover screws.  I learned every camera manual that was available on S16 and 35mm while others were reading On Golden Pond, The Outsiders, etc.  So tech is ingrained in my brain.  I have always been a mechanically inclined person.  Engineering has a place in my heart and head.  Jump to now...Read More

I think I had a few hundred followers at best and they were not targeting...Read More

Canon announced the new Rebel T4i DSLR with auto focus in video mode. The new T4i has an improved five frames per second continous shooting and an improved ISO range from the Rebel T3i. It also claims to be able to read the minds of actors, a major step forward for any motion picture camera. If you are cool with slightly soft or fishy focus then this may be the camera for you. If...Read More

Cine Gear 2012. It’s All About Lighting.

Cameras

This year we felt that cameras have been covered and lighting has been lacking. So we decided to focus primarly on some of the new lights introduced at Cine Gear 2012. There were a few notable plasma lights from Hive Lighting and Photon Beard. They are very similar systems. The new Kobold Para lights from Bron Imaginig look killer! They have gained dramatically in popularity recently.They have a very nice feel and throw. I...Read More
