I reduced the price of the Panasonic GH4 Shooter’s Guide last week to just $9.99 and it has sold well, therefore I am extending the half-price sale to the entire range of EOSHD Shooter’s Guides for the next 7 days only. If you’re looking to dive deeper into your camera knowledge or are even just curious about what the books offer – now is the perfect time.
One of the growing realisations I have had over the last 2 years of upgrading my camera equipment is that it’s made me less creative. It’s time to bring EOSHD back to the stuff I love.
The EOSHD GH2 Shooter’s Guide – on sale [more info here] Since launching my series of books a couple of years ago, the titles have together sold over 7000 copies. To celebrate for the first time I’m putting one of the titles on sale. Even if you just want a taster of what these guides are like or have a passing interest in the GH2 this is the time to get one!
Buy the Panasonic G6 on eBay The G6 achieves a certain yin-and-yang. With the GH3 now occupying a higher position in the line, the G6 has moved up to occupy the position once taken by our much loved GH2. It shares the same sensor which of course was always pretty special for video, yet adds a lot of significant new features like 1080/60p, a faster processor, high resolution LCD and something the GH3 doesn’t even have – focus peaking.
This test was conducted jointly with my good friend and neighbour Rudi at Slashcam – you can read his take on it in German / in English. In the battle of the 1080p cameras, the game has changed. Here’s how the 5D Mark III in raw recording mode compares to the best 1080p output from the Canon C300 and 1D C.
The Micro Four Thirds Speed Booster for Leica R is now in stock at Metabones! The Speed Booster for Micro Four Thirds gives cameras like the Panasonic GH2, GH3 and Blackmagic Cinema Camera a Super 35mm / APS-C sized sensor using clever optics, in the same way that the E-mount version turned cameras like the Sony FS100 and NEX 7 into valid alternatives to full frame. As well as shrinking the image circle of a full frame lens to fit a smaller sensor, the Speed Booster lives up to its name by giving you a 1 stop increase in brightness …
Beautifully shot indie film Upstream Color debuted at Sundance in January, winning the special jury prize. Since then it has a wide release at cinemas.
The Panasonic G6 has been announced and to be honest it is a bit of a surprise, culling very little in the way of features from the GH3 and quite possibly taking video to new levels on a mid-range camera. £549 body only / $750 and based around the GH2’s multi-aspect sensor (18MP total, 16MP effective), the sensor is larger than the one in the GH3 (1.86x crop vs 2x), the new camera updates the AVCHD codec (adding 1080/60p) and even focus peaking, something the GH3 doesn’t (yet) have!
UPDATE: THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED! Due to the high number of entries, Panasonic extended the competition to 4 places at the workshop from 2. So a huge thank you to everyone who entered and congratulations to the winners below… Temujin Doran Godfrey Kirby Thomas Voce-Siriani Michael Lorushe
“They each have their own unique character. Which image do you prefer?” Iscorama VS Iscomorphot 8 2x VS Iscomorphot 8 1.5x by QuickHitRecord. This is a new weekly series on EOSHD. The forum is really booming at the moment. A while ago on the site I decided to redirect the article comments system into the forum and that has seen a big increase in the number of people using it not just to comment, but to add their own content. Some of it deserves to be given wider attention so the best posts will from now on be promoted to the front …
