Here is a rip from the post translated from Japanese to English. “Photography was used to...Read More

Canon Announces 5D Mark III $3499. Hands On Video. Sample Footage.

Cameras

Canon finally announced the new 5D Mark III today. I picked up this hands on video from The Verge.

Cameras

Here is a quick test video of the new Sony E 50mm f1.8 OSS with the Sony NEX 5N camera. We shot everything at f1.8 100 ISO with Tungsten White Balance.

Non Union Day Rates. Part 2 Of 3. Ins, Day Rates and Rental Rates.

Production

It’s almost impossible to sum up years of experience, months of research and countless hours in the field into a simple day rate. Yet we are asked to do it all the time. A typical gig for me will start with an availability check. Then it’s followed with how wonderful and easy the project will be. Then we finally get to the dreaded question of how much do you charge?
