0 Last chance to order your early 4K raw AXIOM Beta – a Linux based open source camera

The crowd funding campaign for the AXIOM camera ends in just hours and has been a massive success, surpassing the funding target early. The open source cinema camera is backed by Magic Lantern, Philip Bloom and other leading lights of the DSLR community. It’s the people’s camera, taking control back into our own hands. What’s interesting is that it also unleashes Magic Lantern’s extraordinary ability for the first time outside the closed platform of a Canon DSLR.

0 Nikon D750 video quality is a step forward, but how much of one?

At Photokina (Photokino for video users!) I briefly played with the Nikon D750. With the camera tethered to a sales rep stand and so much else for filmmakers at the show like the Sony A7S, Panasonic GH4, Samsung NX1, Blackmagic and Red, I didn’t really have much time for the Canon or Nikon areas, but I did form some first impressions of using the new camera.

Of all the technical aspects that do, I think it comes down to three key ingredients. 24p, a wide dynamic range and a 2x anamorphic lens. I and many other filmmakers chase that look. Well, I’ve just returned from Photokina in Cologne, Germany with a surprise. 2 years on from my first visit to SLR Magic at Photokina in 2012, they are back with a 2x anamorphic lens in 2014. This lens has…
