  1. Amazing how more advanced your smart phone will be compared to your DSLR ! The processor will probably be in Samsung's S9 early next year. Other manufactures will showcase it at CES in January.
  2. AMD officially announced RYZEN 8 cores lineup, it beats intel's 8 core i7 6900K for less than half the price Ryzen 7 1800X: 8C/16T, 3.6 GHz base, 4.0 GHz turbo, 95W, $499 Ryzen 7 1700X: 8C/16T, 3.4 GHz base, 3.8 GHz turbo, 95W, $399 Ryzen 7 1700: 8C/16T, 3.0 GHz base, 3.7 GHz turbo, $329
  3. Just saw the camera on clearance at fry's electronics. Is sony going to release a replacement entry level A mount camera ?
  4. So Vegas 14 is out, and saw some reviews on Youtube, I wonder if they increased encoding and exporting speeds drastically
  5. 10 Bit HEVC 4K Encode and Decode provides 4K editing and watching capabilities to the masses. Also will support VP9 10 bit hardware decode and 8 bit VP9 hardware Encode for Youtube consumption. If you have the Samsung NX1 or NX500 and want to edit on the go, this might be useful for you.

On top of just letting you watch more 4K video, the new chips' encoding performance could be a huge deal for anyone editing media, with speeds between 1X and 3X real-time for 30FPS 4K.

  6. I saw this camera on sale, it looked rugged, and was well priced with the lens compared to the Sony A6300, any experience with the video features ?
  7. It has a touchscreen which offers “Touch AF,” “Touch Shoot” and “Touch Zoom,” Does 1920x1080 at 60p and 24P But No Phase detect !! and No 4K, no H.265, No USB 3.0 Will this be the 1080 camera for gun and run with the touch focus or youtubers ? A review on the video capabilities, quality and auto / Touch focus would be awesome. https://***URL removed***/news/1889222085/fujifilm-x-a3-arrives-with-new-sensor-and-touchscreen-in-tow
  8. Is this a good deal ? http://www.adorama.com/ipcdmcgx8g.html?sdtid=8974279#source=productOptions&sterm=weKWAzwbI0htyjyTbOS8rwp6UkkzvwwdQW-q0Q0&kbid=62905 http://www.adorama.com/ipcdmcgx8bg.html?sdtid=8974279&utm_medium=&utm_source=rflaid62905
  9. Someone should review the new version when it comes out, then compare encoding with OpenCl and Nvidia Cuda on different new graphic cards like the RX480 and the 1070 or 1080.
  10. So I just found out that Magix acquired sony Vegas Pro with the whole Sony Creative Suite, and just announced a new version that will launch in September. But what they seem to highlight as the newest feature beside a redesign along with 4k and HEVC Hardware Acceleration support, is the native ProRes capabilities and support. So will this be the go to Prores editing software for Windows users ? They also lowered the price from $600 to $200 and are giving Vegas Pro 14 for free if you purchase the 13 !! Thoughts ? Here is the offer link http://www.magix.com/us/specials/vegas/exclusive-welcome-offer/
  11. Anyone with experience using such hardware and Avid ? http://www.avidblogs.com/simplify-4k-and-save-400-on-avid-artist-dnxio-hardware/?mkt_tok=3RkMMJWWfF9wsRohsqvPZKXonjHpfsX%2F7OouUKS1lMI%2F0ER3fOvrPUfGjI4DTcFgM6%2BTFAwTG5toziV8R7HBJc133M8QXRbk What is the workflow for using this hardware, and how much faster or easier will 4k editing and encoding be ? wouldn't a more expensive dual xeon workstation be a better upgrade option ? It's $2,999.00 for the hardware + avid media composer academic, is it worth it ?

    Nikon DL

    They also announce two $399 small sensor coolpix cameras with UHD 4K http://***URL removed***/news/9106779765/nikon-announces-trio-of-long-zoom-coolpix-cameras-two-of-which-support-4k-capture
  13. I tried something similar to live stream to youtube with a DSLR & my phone last year as I could not get my laptop to a press conference, but was not successful. I ended up live streaming to youtube with RTMP Camera app and my phone's camera, the quality was poor to alright as I switched streaming settings, I had 32000+ live viewers so it was alright, and the app had a mute option that i utilized to block copyrighted music. Youtube disables your stream if copyrighted music is played in the background. Would be great if the capture device worked with a streaming app, and if that app had the ability to switch audio source to play stored mp3 files when selected then switch back to the hdmi audio source when possible.
  14. It is weather sealed !! and the lcd screen movements are good enough. The lenses have stabilization, depending on which you buy. The biggest downside is removing the touch autofocus which was on the a5100
  15. I wonder if there will be an a7000 just like with the last release, a5100 and a6000. Why did they remove the touchscreen from the a5100 !
  16. It is $494 in NewEgg, and Amex is offering $20 off Is it worth it compared to A6000 ? http://flash.newegg.com/Product/9SIA63G3GN4997?SID=39c7aa068a3711e5a30212e62f77c9760000&AID=10440897&PID=1225267&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-cables-_-na-_-na&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-Slickdeals+LLC-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=12087162&PID=4485850&SID=39c7aa068a3711e5a30212e62f77c9760000&utm_medium=affiliates&utm_source=afc-Slickdeals+LLC
  17. Still no 4k, but mentions a new sensor with better DR For fast, compact, and powerful performance specially suited for on-the-go Electronic News Gathering (ENG) production, corporate videos and higher education, Canon's XA35 Professional Camcorder offers a remarkable combination of portability, image quality and I/O capability. Its HD/SD-SDI Terminal offers easy connectivity to broadcast vans, workstations and other digital cinema/TV hardware, helping to provide incredibly fast transfer of uncompressed video with timecode and audio embedded for rapid productions. Plus, with a Genuine Canon 20x High Definition Optical Zoom lens and a newly designed HD CMOS Pro Image Sensor with improved low-light performance, the XA35 captures superb Full HD 1920x1080 video. It features two new modes: Wide DR Gamma and Highlight Priority, which help to deliver an expansive range of colors and tones virtually consistent with how they're seen by the naked eye. A new interval recording option rounds out the XA35’s ability to capture dramatic footage on the fly with fast motion of up to 1200x the original speed. All this makes for a camcorder that helps facilitate speedy, outstanding-quality video capture that can be ideal for broadcast news, sports events, documentaries and other fast-moving recording situations.
  18. They need to have another phone like panasonic CM1 but with much better BSI 1" sensor, F1.4 retractable pancake zoom lens with IS, built in ND filter, newer processor like the snapdragon 820 or much faster one, 4K 60 fps, 128 GB storage and expandable with Micro SD U3! and manual controls. Also price $650 or lower!
  19. I uploaded straight from my A6000 some XAVC-S clips to youtube and they looked horrible, even the AVCHD videos from the RX100 look much better, what is the best way to make it great on youtube ? Transcode to VP9 ? Also what is the best Camera and video Format to use to capture for straight Youtube upload ? (press conference coverage, no editing at all)
  20. Price ? Nice improvements, glad Sony listens
  21. They are announcing two different models, the more expensive X5R model has some crazy 1.7 Gbps video bitrate with a max of 2.4 Gbps Bitrate, also records in D-Log mode lossless CinemaDNG Raw on a 512GB SSD option. These specs almost make high end DSLRs and Mirrorless cameras a joke for video production, specs wise. So they are not going to sell it solo ? The R model seems to have a Gimbal and a mount as well beside the extra features and the SSD Resolutions: 4096x2160(23.98p),3840x2160(29.97/23.98p),2704x1520(30/25P),1920x1080(59.94/29.97p) Specs page link: http://www.dji.com/products/compare-xcamera
  22. Will this start the 4k Devices flood, the must have in 2016 ? I hope so...
  23. I hope all their high end cameras come with 8k and 16k 12 bit 4:4:4, so that their regular DSLRs get 4K 10 bit 4:2:2 lolz
