iPhone 5S gets it’s first slow-motion samples

Cameras / Nate Weber

The iPhone 5S getting 720p120 was one of the more intriguing features of the new phone. I still haven’t gotten mine, but samples of the slow-motion are popping up. BLASTmediaPR on youtube made the quintessential slow-motion sampler. I’m really happy with how it looks, for a camera phone, it’s got nice dynamic range and saturation, and I think Youtube hates me because 480p and 720p appear identical, I am hoping that’s not the actual...Read More

Sony 4K Handycam FDR-AX1 Sample Video.

Cameras

Here is a little sample video from the new Sony 4K Handycam FDR-AX1. It’s too bad they only show mostly landscapes and beauty shots. I would have loved to see some skin tones in this video. The new Handycam FDR-AX1 should hit the street sonn with a price of around five thousand smackers. Not too bad for a fixed lens job. Let’s hope they release an E-Mount version soon. Here is a rip from...Read More

The new age of aerial photography and FPV

@MNS1974

One of the hottest things outside of the Freefly MoVi at NAB this year was from a competing multi-rotor company DJI.  No it was not a camera stabilizer (although they do make them), but rather their new quad-copter the DJI Phantom.  You have all probably seen or know someone who has one as they have blown up in the entry level aerial market.  Beyond that the hobby seemed to explode with the release of...Read More

Canon Cinema Zooms

@MNS1974

My good friends at Canon USA sent me the Canon 15.5-47mm T/2.8 compact cine zoom and the 14.5-60mm T/2.6 cine zoom lens to test and play with for a few weeks and here are my findings.  First off the two have a very similar focal range.  Secondly one costs twice as much as the other.  One is a lot bigger and heavier as well.  So why would anyone want the 14.5-60mm at 9.9lbs vs...Read More
