I get asked to review a lot of gear. This isn’t new but it has become more frequent the past year or so. When I first started reviewing gear in 2008 with the Sony EX3 it was a very different landscape for this sort of thing. People did written reviews of gear mostly but almost nobody […]

Deliberately reversed to add an additional layer of strangeness…the colours were not achieved in post. This was filmed with a modified to infrared full spectrum DJI Mavic 2 Pro by Kolari Vision. IR Chrome filter fitted over the lens to selectively filtrate the regular colour spectrum. This filter emulates Aerochrome film. You can get your […]

On Tuesday I flew over to Dublin for a Sony press event. As with all of their press events you never know what they will be until you get there. Most times they are for lenses but every now and then a new body is released. There was a strong feeling that this could finally […]

Well it isn’t…I do review it but I also go beyond the actual product to talk about key aspects of sound recording and the issues of things like the pre-amps of different mirrorless cameras which can really affect your audio. I have had a working relationship with RØDE  for many years, ever since they took me […]

I was asked by Cinemartin about a year ago if I was interested in reviewing their recently announced 8K cinema camera. What?
