Slow-mo raw shooters can now make use of an improved 2K 60p mode on the 5D Mark III thanks to Magic Lantern. In addition, 1920 x 800 recordings at 60fps are continuous to the card without a frame limit, a feat made possible thanks to new lossless compression.
Comment on the forum The first actually useful GH5 review I’ve read comes from Amadeusz at the excellent Polish website VideoDSLR.pl (Google Translated here) He look at all aspects of the new camera in detail, including the quality of the promising 180fps slow-mo mode.
What do you upgrade to once you get bored of Sony and Panasonic? I went to find out.
Canon have made the biggest step forward with their DSLR technology in 2016 than I’ve seen since 2009’s 5D Mark II. It isn’t the 5D Mark IV that has excited me so much as the 1D X Mark II, a camera that will see out the next 6 years as the benchmark for others to follow.
The Sony RX100 IV review is done and it is a camera I’ve found myself using a lot… but not for the 4K.
By now you might be wondering which to pull the trigger on – the RX10 II or RX100 IV? The good news is I have now finally got round to finishing my review of the RX10 II and have also bought the RX100 IV to compare it with…
The slow-mo capabilities of the new Sony RX cameras are groundbreaking. I’ve been shooting at 100fps to 1000fps and everything in between. Here is everything you need to know.
There are some truly remarkable upgrade options for backers of the fps1000 project on Kickstarter, including 4K Super 35mm and also an ultra-sensitive Micro Four Thirds CMOS. The original fps1000 Platinum with Micro Four Thirds mount which I backed was £899 and is now due to ship next month! The higher end 4K and ultra-sensitivity options are an extra £1500 for backers and will likely ship Q4 2015.
Ferrari have a DNA. Cinema cameras have a DNA. You have to go back decades to see it evolve into the force it is today. For Ferrari it is the very specific engine sound and the looks. Arri are that spirit to cinema cameras. The DNA of the Sony FS7 is a compromise. Half EX1 and half cinema camera, the ergonomics of the buttons, dials and menus need a complete overhaul in my opinion. So Sony haven’t got it all right yet but what they have done is put a Ferrari engine inside. The FS7 for £5199+VAT is an absolute bargain, with an ‘engine’ almost on par with a £18,000 …
The Sony FS7 is Sony’s next e-mount Super 35mm camera, shooting 4K XAVC. Thanks to the E-mount you can use Canon EF lenses on it and the Metabones Speed Booster for when a full frame look is required. It has a 180fps slow mo mode, with an ergonomic design much improved and closer to the Canon C300, with top handle, top mounted LCD and built in ND filter. It really looks like Sony are going after the C300 market with this and it’s arguably going to be a much more capable tool. I’m impressed!! The camera will be announced today (Friday) …
