2 Sigma 20mm F1.4 ART review

0 5 underrated cinematic images from “forgotten” cameras

Comment on the forum Some of my favourite images are from cinema cameras and DSLRs from which attention has long since drifted elsewhere! Rest assured some of the older cameras on this list are better than any of the latest and greatest (if not in terms of usability then in terms of having an analogue film-like feel that screams “cinema” and not “digital”). Here are my top 5.

0 Samsung NX1 vs Canon C300 (image quality)

The Canon C300 (currently reduced to $11,500) was the $15,000 stalwart of the professional videographer, only recently did it have a compelling rival – the Sony FS7. The Samsung NX1 is essentially a cutting edge 4K Super 35mm sensor in a mirrorless camera, recently given a video oriented firmware update which improves dynamic range and the available image profiles. I was curious to see how the images from these cameras compared and I put my Canon 1D…

0 Canon 1D C to get official $4000 price drop on Sunday 1st February

On Sunday you will be able to buy a brand new Canon 1D C 4K DSLR for $7999 at Adorama. It is currently $12,000 and the price drop will be applied on the 1st February. I’m expecting others such as B&H in the US and CVP in the UK to follow suit as it’s an official Canon discount. This puts the internally recording 4K DSLR in line with the Sony FS7, also an internally recording 4K cinema…

0 Canon Hong Kong officially lower 1D C price to $7000?

Is this a sign of things to come? The 1D C is currently sold for $12,000 in the US, however Canon in Hong Kong have just lowered the list price, according to one Canon rep to “put it in-line with the Sony FS700”. Converted to US dollars the Hong Kong street price now works out at just $7000.

0 25 ways the Sony A7S trumps the Canon 1D C

This began as a 10 point list. It grew… I am huge fan of the 1D C’s image but not the camera itself and especially not the price. The 1D C when it was introduced offered an absolutely lovely image and still does but now the playing field is rapidly changing. Exactly how does the Sony A7S compare on paper to the 1D C?

0 Why I am going with 4K and why you should too

This blog has been going 4 years now and to be honest I have run out of interesting things to say about the current DSLRs. It’s time to upgrade. 2014 will be a big overhaul for image quality on DSLRs. Even those who don’t need the extra resolution 4K offers will change their minds when they see what’s coming. You see, 4K isn’t really about resolution at all… It is the…

0 The Canon 1D C review

Iscorama anamorphic on the 1D C and my test footage at Vimeo I shot with the Canon 1D C and Canon C100 Cinema EOS cameras recently with SlashCam in Berlin. The 1D C is the most Jekyll and Hyde camera I’ve ever used and a difficult camera to review. The 1D C is a marriage of beautiful 4K images and an unwilling partner who hasn’t shifted an inch to accommodate it.

0 Making sense of the new Blackmagic Production Camera and Pocket Cinema Camera

For the second NAB in succession Blackmagic are bulldozing down the image quality / price barrier for film production. 4K compressed raw, global shutter and Super 35mm was the unique preserve of Sony with the F55 until today, and that was a $36,000 camera. This is a $4000 one. Gone is that extra margin – unsettling stuff for the big guys. Here’s my own personal look at the cameras and the…

0 Will we see a new professional Panasonic GH-series camera at NAB?

The Panasonic GH3 was a big update over the legendary GH2 and I am putting the final touches to my review (and a lot of other future material). I’ve been shooting a lot with it alongside by cinema cameras, the FS100 and Blackmagic Cinema camera. Where are the Panasonic pro cameras? Well the GH3 is $1300 and that leaves quite a large space above it for a high spec ‘DSLR-type’…

0 1D X has traces of 1D C firmware but Magic Lantern ‘will never touch 1D series’ as Canon threatens potential hackers with legal trouble

A few months ago I reported back what Canon had told me officially at Photokina – that the 1D C had some very minor hardware changes over the 1D X (like a headphone socket) but that the camera was fundementally the same camera with a firmware update to enable 4K recording. The Canon product manager was technically knowledge and utterly adamant this was the case, there wasn’t a hint of doubt…

0 Interview with Canon’s Mike Burnhill on the Canon 1D C 4K DSLR

The EOS 1D C is a $15,000 DSLR which is heavily based on the $6000 1D X but has extra recording modes for 4K/24p and 1080/50/60p. Canon’s product manager at Photokina (not a hired hand or a sales rep) to my surprise told me the main difference to the 1D X was just firmware and that the hardware was identical other than a slightly different selection of connectivity ports. Canon contacted…
