Wide Open Camera And Light Craft Workshop 3-Stop Polarizer Filter.

Cameras

By: Jared Abrams This has been a dream of mine for some time now. To get my name on a product that will help cinematographers. I have been thinking about a 3-Stop Polarizer since the HDSLR cameras hit the street. The sweet spot for most of my outdoor photography has been a ND3 and Polarizer. Here is that combination in one sweet ass filter. This is a Multi-Coated Circular Polarizer with an additional ND3...Read More

AJA KI PRO MINI – ON MY DESK

@MNS1974

I just took charge of the Ki Pro Mini, one of only 6 currently in circulation in the UK. Now, this is just the equivalent of Jared’s quick take videos so don’t expect anything earth-shattering just yet. For me, this little unit is the missing piece of the DSLR puzzle. If, and this is an almighty if, we can get a camera that will play out a clean HDMI signal (4:2:2 8bit would be...Read More

We were lucky enough to hit up Internet Celebrity Julia Allison and the first “video blogger” Steve Garfield for...Read More

Vimeo & Nikon Party At SXSW 2011. Eclectic Method.

Cameras

We have been working our tail off this past year trying to get WOC some recognition. Our intention was to hit SXSW as a vacation. We headed down to Austin to chill out. Chilling for us means bringing only two cameras and tackling only one assignment. We wanted to shoot a short documentary on the viability of film festivals in the age of Vimeo and You Tube. We found that SXSW is the future...Read More

TECHNOLOGY VS STORY – YAWN

@MNS1974

You’ve heard this argument, you know the one, that narrative nerds fire at tech heads: it’s not about the camera it’s about the story. I hear this debated endlessly on Twitter – knowing ‘filmmakers’ taking the high ground over those still enjoying that childlike phase of discovering the technology, forgetting in the process that this is exactly why we were all drawn to DSLRs in the first place. We’re all magpies to a certain...Read More

SXSW Day One. Killer Video By Misa Garcia.

Cameras

Misa Garcia put together this killer day one video. He really is one of the best filmmakers I have had the pleasure of working with. We are in Austin for the SXSW Film Festival. To be totally honest we are completely out of our element here. It’s like a mini Mardi Gras. A total party! We have been getting tons of great interviews for our documentary about the validity of film festivals as a...Read More
