0 EOSHD opinion: smartphones are not killing DSLRs, apps and online services are

It’s well known that DSLR sales are sliding now, following the worrying trajectory of compact cameras. Then I read with great interest Vincent Laforet’s prediction that the era of stand-alone cameras is coming to an abrupt end for the mass market. There was a very key chart in that blog post which you can see above. I believe it speaks volumes about why the mass market is migrating from hardware…

1 Converge Festival 2011 blog

Converge came around for 2011 last week and it was interesting to see both from a creative filmmaker perspective, and from a business point of view where DSLR video is at and more importantly where it is heading. It was also great to finally meet Kevin Shahinian, and to catch up with other key people in the resistance like Philip Bloom, Joe Simon, Robin Schmidt and Sam Morgan Moore amongst…

3 New EOSHD Facebook presence and mini-blog

[vimeo]19643134[/vimeo] Since Twitter is info-bombardment-madness, things get sunk very quickly on there. I going to move a lot of the EOSHD mini-blogging to a Facebook page. Befriend me here and ‘like’ the new EOSHD page. Or else! The first mini-blog is about Canon’s 3 year product cycle for the 5D and 1D series and why it is all wrong in the new era of fast moving consumer electronics. At least…

0 Introducing Rare. eBay. Finds.

Over the course of EOSHD.com nearly all my kit has been sourced from eBay. Not for me these super expensive gear lists. I find it much more interesting to find unique treasure online – the stuff which hardly anybody else is shooting with and lenses with a unique look. My eBay searches have served me very well over the year. Unfortunately I can’t buy every gem I see so now…

DSLRs are something the entire pro video market didn’t expect. Read the description of disruptive technology on Wikipedia and it almost describes DSLRs perfectly. They’re the Ford Model T of the camera industry.

0 Philip Bloom’s London Meet – Blog and a Kubrick inspired short!

[vimeo]14330130[/vimeo] Last weekend I met the man himself Philip Bloom with which it all began and whom was first to shoot really exciting footage with a DSLR and get the word out. Without his contribution to the DSLR video scene since, would EOSHD.com have existed or been the same? In London I found that the meet up was incredibly enjoyable – great to get to meet lots of like minded…

[vimeo]10949526[/vimeo] Thought I’d do a Bob Dylan video! Philip Bloom recently shot a short near the coast with the latest Panasonic broadcast camera – the HPX370. To see how the humble GH1 compares on a similar shoot I went along to see the north coast of Taiwan at Gingshang taking along my GH1 and simply the kit lens.

This video interview is about the basics of using HDSLRs but I managed to fit in a bit about the Zacuto Z-Finder! Very pleased with the way it turned out, it’s the first time I’ve done something like this but it wasn’t a…
