In case you missed it: 5DtoRGB v1.5 [UPDATED]

Just the Cut

**UPDATE 8-15-11** You must thank the power of social media and its reach to your audience. Less than 48 hours after I posted this video, Thomas from Rarevision contacted me about the gamma shift problem in the last release. He was proud to announce that the new version has been made available to download with the problem fixed in this version. Check it out I believe it was about a year ago when the...Read More

First Look: Hurlbut Visuals DSLR Cinema Rentals.

Cameras

We got to spend a little time with Shane Hurlbut at his new rental house in LA. I came up through the rental house system and believe whole heartedly that it is critical to use a rental house as part of your support system. It kills me to see so many people investing in very expensive systems, that may be outdated in the matter of months, not years. Hurlbut Visuals has everything you could...Read More

BEATBOX BAR CRAWL: MAKING IT

@MNS1974 / Cameras

  Killa Kela is a London beatboxer renowned the world over for his ability to create an entire band just with his mouth. Kela approached me a month or so ago to talk about a viral idea he had and we got along so well I agreed to come along and document the beatbox bar crawl he was planning with French beatboxer Eklips. I don’t normally do this kind of work anymore, kind of...Read More

First Look: LCW Helmsman USB Follow Focus For Canon DSLR Cameras.

Cameras

Here is a BTS Quick Take on the new Helmsman USB Follow Focus from Light Craft Workshop. It worked with our Tokina 28-80mm f2.8 Zoom and should work with most Canon EF mount AF lenses. It is not the smoothest operator on the block but I suspect that it will react differently for each lens depending on the lenses AF capability, focus throw, etc. It has a remote start/stop button and lets you use...Read More

First Look At The JAG35 Camera Slider.

Cameras

  Here are a few stills of the brand new slider from JAG35. The system is based around a ball bearing camera plate that rides on two 15mm rails. It is very smooth and looks to be a great addition to the smaller camera slider options in the sub-$500 catageory. The unit I have is a prototype and we may see more improvements when it finally makes it to the street. I will have...Read More

TOP 5 MTV EDITING TRICKS

@MNS1974

Think about this: everyone and his dog can now afford a 35mm look camera. What’s more, everyone is now editing. Many have a photoshop background so I tend to see a lot of wonderfully massaged footage, but really we’re now spoilt for editors. While many edit their own material I suspect very few would put their hands up to go and cut for a demanding corporate client. Particularly when it comes to what we...Read More

Quick Take Review: Cineroid, SmallHD and Zacuto EVF Systems.

Cameras

Here is a Quick Take Review of all of the HDMI EVF’s (Electronic View Finders) currently on the market as of Summer, 2011. We tested the Cineroid EVF, the SmallHD DP4 EVF and the Zacuto Z-Finder EVF Flip. I would liken an EVF system to a ladder. It let’s me get where I need to be, to do my job. I am not very concerned with all of the added features. I only want...Read More
