The world of FPV droning doesn’t typically have much to do with the more aesthetic, cinematic of drone filmmaking. At least, not usually. Well, not unless you’re Paul Nurk. Going by the name NurkFPV on YouTube (and Instagram), Paul is pretty obsessed with FPV. How obsessed? Well, he’s obsessed enough to build an FPV drone […]
When Canon officially entered the full-frame mirrorless space with the EOS R, they were praised for releasing not one, not two, but three different RF-mount lens adapters. But it seems that was just the beginning…
According to a report on Canon Rumors, the Japanese camera giant has three more RF-mount adapters in the works: two lens adapters for cinema glass, and its very own speed booster (AKA a focal reducer) that would compete with options from companies like Metabones.
The first three adapters Canon released were all RF-mount to EF-mount: one bog-standard version, one with a built-in

Apple boxes have been used on set for decades, and a Canadian company called Foam Box decided to reinvent it. Foam Box is nearly the size of a traditional full apple box, you can sit on it without a cushion, it can support over 2000lbs, but it is made of expanded polyethylene and weighs only 3lbs, which is three times lighter than wood. However, you can’t use it to level dolly tracks, but it’s an excellent alternative for independent filmmakers. Let’s take a closer look at it!

Since earlier this year, some new rules apply: wash your hands regularly, silently sing happy birthday twice while doing so, wear a face mask, keep your distance to others… you know the drill. But how to deal with now slowly re-opening workplaces like film sets for example? The new INOVATIV AXIS Health line
Ever since Canon declared that the newly-announced EOS R5 would be able able to shoot 8K RAW video with NO crop, people have been waiting to hear the “catch.” Would record time be super limited, or would the camera simply overheat very quickly? The answer, it seems, is “both.”
The whole controversy more or less began when a warning page—ostensibly supplied by Canon to “the largest UK pro-video dealership CVP”—was published online. We first saw it on EOSHD, and it shows the record time limitations and overheating issues inherent to a 45MP camera that shoots 8K/30p RAW
Light & Motion, based out of Northern California, is known primarily for their history in dive lighting that stretches back as far as 1989. In recent years though they’ve made the leap into the photography and cinema space and their lighting fixtures are certainly unique in design. Over the past several weeks I’ve been able to put their newest and highest output light, the CLx10, through the paces. More below!
