47 Blackmagic Micro Cinema vs Studio Camera – What are the differences?

Blackmagic once again caused quite a stir at NAB with three new cameras. I like the URSA Mini the best but here we have the old Pocket and Studio cameras reincarnated. They are a lot cuter this time. These cameras are exceptionally innovative and certainly break all the known performance / size ratios. Although they look very similar on the surface they are aimed at very different users. I’ll now delve into how the…

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.

0 Panasonic GH4 pricing official – $1698 body only. UPDATE: £1299 in the UK!

UPDATE: The UK and European pricing has now been announced. The great news is the UK price is just £1299 (£1083 + VAT). That’s barely any different to other high end mirrorless cameras and cheaper than the Sony A7. I am amazed at such low pricing, and it seems Panasonic have not chosen to mark-up the camera for these regions like some other manufacturers despite greater demand for mirrorless here…

0 Hands-on preview of the powerful 4K shooting Panasonic GH4!

Based on a pre-production model Since the GH1 I have been shooting with Panasonic’s mirrorless system for video.

Canon’s new Cinema EOS camera is here and it is 5D Mark II inspired in terms of design although not price!

3 The Sony FS100 – Why professionals are all mad

Is the FS100 (and F3 even more so) worth such a lot of money now DSLRs are in the game? EOSHD believes that for some people, yes they are.

Canon have released the same camera 3 times in 12 months. But here, explains why they are right (from a business perspective) to do so. In October 2009 Canon released the 7D.

0 Canon 60D hands-on* review – creative but nothing new!

See my Canon 60D versus Panasonic GH2 review here If this is innovation, then I’m Britney Spears! Canon have released another very conservative derivative of the 7D in the form of the 60D with articulated screen. The company has managed to fill the tiny hole in the range between the 550D and 7D. The main distinguishing features of the 60D is a hinge, a wheel and the price.
