We have three important new announcements since the last roundup, two of them video-related. The mirrorless market for serious photographers has matured to the point where there are five distinct “niches”. One manufacturer, Sony, makes this especially clear by having a camera in each of them, with very little confusion about what each does. For [Read More]

We’ve already seen how creative videos can be made from two different clips side by side. But in their recent commercial, Nike has absolutely nailed it. They repurposed archive footage to create a split-screen ad that not only looks marvelous but also shares an important message. Since the coronavirus has postponed all sporting events, Nike […]

First look: UltraStudio Recorder 3G from Blackmagic


This post is by Allan Tépper from ProVideo Coalition


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Although the big media hype is about Blackmagic’s new 12K camera with its amazing sensor, the other intriguing new device from the Australian innovator is the new US$115 UltraStudio 3G Recorder interface, which supersedes the prior UltraStudio Recorder, which is not 3G. It is so different that I requested one to review it soon. The 3G portion and the Thunderbolt 3 connection make the new version of the device have greater features, such as more video formats, greater selection of color space, RGB video formats and lower price of only US$115 instead of US$145. Ahead are more details and photos.

Manfrotto Launches Its First Camera Gimbals, Takes on DJI and Zhyiun

Earlier today, in a move that is either unexpected or a long time coming, camera accessory maker Manfrotto quietly launched two handheld 3-axis camera gimbals that will compete directly with products like the DJI Ronin, Zhyiun Crane, and the Gudsen Moza gimbals already well-established on the market.

We say “quietly launched” because the new Manfrotto Gimbal 220 and Manfrotto Gimbal 460 were, to the best of our knowledge, only “unveiled” on the Adorama Learning Center blog. Both gimbals are available for pre-order on both Adorama and B&H, but neither product shows up anywhere on the official Manfrotto website just yet.

How to make better looking and sounding Skype and Zoom calls


This post is by Steve Hullfish from ProVideo Coalition


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




So many broadcasters have been relying on incredibly crappy webcam video for content, ala SNL’s stay-at-home broadcasts, numerous news shows, and late-night shows. It’s no wonder that if the networks can’t do it right, your colleague on Zoom or Skype might be similarly challenged. Just because you can’t broadcast from a multi-million dollar studio doesn’t mean you should just forego quality from the outset. It’s possible to deliver good-looking video from home or – once we can start traveling – from a hotel room or conference room.

This article will contain some pretty in-depth advice. Because many people may be

Canon Explains EOS R5 Overheating, Why There’s No Fan, and More


This post is by DL Cade from PetaPixel


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




Canon sent out a media alert to press this morning addressing the overheating concerns that have come up regarding the new EOS R5 full-frame mirrorless camera. The statement explains why Canon didn’t include a fan, when the camera will overheat, and what you can do to avoid these issues.

The statement covers a lot of ground, explaining the steps that Canon took to avoid overheating, why the company chose not to install a fan for active cooling, an explanation of the “Overheat Control” feature, and tips for “reducing heat buildup” when shooting video. They even included a section about the

Quick Tip: Easy Manual LOG Grading

If you get handed a drive full of LOG footage, you could of course slap on the respective camera LUT and be done with it, right? Of course you can do that, but it’s very easy to manually grade LOG video and that gives you much more creative control.

The purpose of using LOG gamma is to record as much of the Dynamic Range a camera sensor produces into the file that gets recorded to card. This file is a normal 8- or 10-bit file that is recorded in the

The Canon EOS R5 May Be Plagued by Overheating Issues in Both 8K and 4K Modes


This post is by DL Cade from PetaPixel


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




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

Canon EOS R6 shoots 10bit 4K/60 (but NO RAW) – How it compares to the EOS R5


This post is by Andrew Reid (EOSHD) from EOSHD.com - the DSLR video and digital filmmaking blog


Click here to view on the original site: Original Post




With the price of the EOS R5 set at £4199 here in the UK, that is firmly pro-territory, but Canon has an enthusiast version too which will be the focus of many at EOSHD. The Canon EOS R6 is a competitor to the Sony A7 III, Panasonic S1 and Nikon Z6. It brings 10bit to the table over the 8bit only Sony & Nikon – and Dual Pixel Autofocus to the plate which is an advantage over the Panasonic cameras. Canon users will also like the fact that the EOS R6 at $2500 / £2500 puts a lot right for …
