Insanely Cool! World’s Smallest HD Cinema Drone Cruises Through Muscle Beach

This is just damn cool and a must see for all you drone fans! Related: New $500 entry level DJI Spark! I'm very impressed with the skill of Robert McIntosh who created this video – and note the video towards the bottom about “practice” – and he's also provided a very cool behind-the-scenes to go with it so you can see the final take the way it was originally shot. And what makes this video for me is the audio! Compare the original with the drone sounds to the final version and there is NO comparison! Audio makes this video so

HOT! Just Announced – DJI Spark – Small, Light, Launches from your Hand – Heck Even I Can Operate This!

Yep, I just preordered the DJI Spark! It looks like something even I can operate as you can launch it from your hand, use hand motions to tell it what to do, and land it in your hand when you're done. Of course, it has more sophisticated controls as well. Downside? Only 16 minutes of flight time (but that’s probably enough for my needs). PRE-ORDER: DJI site or Amazon And the ability to have the videos/photos sent to your phone so you can edit instead of having to remove the card and edit on your desktop.

Sony a9 Hands-On Review And Problems With Dynamic Range – So It Isn’t The Perfect Camera After All?

So what's up with the Sony a9? What are people saying about it? Is it the killer DSLR for sports that everyone's been hoping for? (Ok not everyone, but many LOL). We've got a hands-on report from our good friend Hugh Brownstone as well as a troubling report from DPreview about the unfortunate results in their testing of Dynamic Range with ISOs below 640. So what are your thoughts? Are you jumping on the Sony a9 bandwagon?

Learn Filmmaking Without Film School

I'm always on the lookout for inspiration and good training. I've also been following Darious Britt (D4Darious) for a while and he's putting out some great content for filmmakers on youtube. This tutorial was really fascinating to me because he really pushes you to PRACTICE. Sure there are lots and lots of videos on how to learn to make movies, but this one is dead serious on making you practice. You can't get good without practice. Really.

Dies Somnum By Neumann Films: A Lumix GH5 Anamorphic Short with a behind-the-scenes video

A very cool update on the Panasonic GH5 from Luke Neumann with a cool behind-the-scenes. Tho isn't he a bit harsh on the ‘blown highlights' section? Nobody besides us pixel peepers will notice will they? Ok, he's harsh on himself all thru the behind-the-scenes LOL.

Shogun Inferno VS Odyssey 7Q+ A Comparison Review

Dusty Mccord sent in this review for folks interested in finding out the differences between the Odyssey 7Q and the Atomos Inferno.

Hello, my friend and I recently ordered the inferno after using the Odyssey 7Q for a couple years.
There were a lot of questions we had on little details about how the two units compared that were not answered by other videos on youtube.

So we throw one together after playing around with the two units. I think it would be helpful info for anyone else considering buying one of the two units.
