Arri Announces AMIRA. A 2K Documentary Style Camera. Under $20K

Cameras

Arri has announced the new AMIRA, a 2K documentary  style camera. This looks like one bad ass 2K camera. Plenty of great features including a blistering 200fps in full HD. Pricing has yet to be announced. Rumors are in the sub $20K range. Here is a rip from the Arri press release. Click here to check it out.  ARRI AMIRA unveiled ARRI proudly introduces AMIRA, a versatile documentary-style camera that combines exceptional image quality...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

The Wide Open Camera BMPCC Review. Black Dot Issue and More.

Cameras

The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera was one of the most highly anticipated cameras to be announced at NAB 2013. We got our hands on one of the few that actually shipped “on time”. The BMPCC feels solid, the buttons are easy to navigate and there is a 1/4″ mount on the top and bottom. The smaller S16mm sized sensor adds about 2.5X to your full frame lenses, so wides are going to be difficult....Read More

BMPCC Quick Take. EVS Online Has One.

Cameras

The brothers and sisters over at EVS in Burbank let us hold onto their BMPCC for about thirty seconds. We had high hopes for the pocket camera, now we just want to get it out in the field. We will be testing this puppy with some hot ladies at the beach and a few driving shots into the night. Let us know here in the comments what you would like to see from this...Read More
