I decided to take another look at the Canon 1D X Mark III – giving it a second chance in the post EOS R5 and R6 world.
Where is the fire behind the eyes of today’s über-privileged actors and directors?
The size of this optic is incredible, a world first for a full frame F2.8 constant zoom of this focal length. It beats the existing Tamron rival, and weighs just 16.6 ounces. Half the weight of the DG DN ART version. To illustrate just how small it is, here it is on the Sigma Fp! Here’s what Sigma have to say about the new zoom: At time of release, it is the smallest and lightest full-frame F2.8 standard zoom for mirrorless systems. Available in Sony E-Mount and L-Mount for L-mount cameras from SIGMA, Leica, and Panasonic Compact and lightweight, perfect for …
Sony really excelled themselves this time. The FX3 is $400 more than the A7S III for less camera!
The Sony A7C is getting a huge upgrade for filmmakers. It’s expected to inherit the 8K full frame sensor of the recently announced A1, whilst packing in many of the same codec options and video features of the FX6.
In Episode 2 of The EOSHD Podcast (Available now on Anchor and Spotify) I talk to Michael Moore’s producer Jeff Gibbs. Jeff’s film Planet Of The Humans is a documentary exploring the dangerous corporate co-opt of the clean energy industry around the world. Can the technology of an industrialised civilisation save us from industrialised civilisation itself?
And most importantly, how much do you trust the astoundingly wealthy corporate people hawking the solutions.
A big thanks to Jeff for coming on the show.
Mr Gibb’s other work with Michael Moore of course includes Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling For Columbine, but Jeff started working on this film a long time ago – it has been a very personal adventure for Jeff, as the natural world and the environment is a life-long love for him. In this conversation you will discover the even more inconvenient truth about climate change and who is really pulling the strings in the background – without any conspiracies or baseless disguised attacks on clean energy – this film only deals with the facts and is extremely well researched. A lot of the thinking behind our move to renewable energy and cleaner technology is well intended, but the existing fossil fuel industry is steadfastly behind the scenes – maybe even larger than ever.
Has the digital camera market finally bottomed out?
Or will retailers like Amazon start to turn their back on cameras altogether?
