New 60 FPS SloPro App For iPhone.

Cameras

I picked this up via FStoppers on Twitter. SloPro looks like a killer app addition for any iPhone 4s. The demo video looks pretty clean and you can’t go wrong with a free app. Here is a rip from the FStoppers post. “While some apps might say that they can record slow motion, chances are they are using software to blend frames together and interpolated pixels are created to simulate slow motion. This technique...Read More

Sony Announces NEX F3 Camera. $600 With 18-55mm Lens.

Cameras

The new Sony NEX F3 camera has been announced. The feature set is very similar to the popular Sony NEX 5N. This entry level interchangeable lens camera packs a punch with 60 fps in full 1920 X 1080 HD. It is also super cheap at just under $600 with the 18-55mm kit lens. The only major drawback I can see is the lack of interchangeable batteries. This would be a huge misstep for Sony....Read More

High-Speed & Time-Lapse.

@MNS1974

  High-speed and time-lapse are sort of the opposite but make a great pair to write about.  One is hundreds of stills recorded per second and the other is generally one frame per second or longer.  I chose to write about both as both are of great interest to me. I have had a lot of opportunity to shoot with high-speed cameras for well over a decade now with my first experience being on...Read More

Camera Movement Then And Now.

Becoming A Specialist VS. Jack (hack) Of All Trades!

@MNS1974

The DSLR revolution has been beneficial to most starting out in the business and to existing working professionals it has caused some distention.  Affordable, compact, high quality cameras have opened up doors to many and has encroached on the turf of others. We have always seen the jack of all trades filmmaker in our business.  The director/actor/writer/DP/camera operator/composer/editor/producer, etc etc etc has been around for decades but this amalgamation of roles has certainly become...Read More

Movie Clip Of The Week. The Yards. Harris Savides.

Cameras

The Yards was the first narrative feature I ever worked on. It was directed by James Gray with cinematography by Harris Savides. I was hired as the camera loader and got my ass kicked by the first AC throughout the entire film. It was shot mostly at night in and around Queens and Brooklyn, New York. The scene shown here is a great example of motion photography and interior lighting. Harris Savides is a...Read More
