Where is the fire behind the eyes of today’s über-privileged actors and directors?
Is there No Limit to our suffering.
Locked in a race as to who can kill the arts first, we bear witness to a gargantuan dick swinging contest fought between haphazard bureaucrats in government and a deadly bat pathogen. The fight is escalating with no end in sight, but one thing is for sure – corporate America will profit endlessly.
When I began shooting with my own Leica SL2 earlier this year, I found a lot to like about the high-spec mirrorless camera for filmmaking, and of course the SL2 is superb for photography. However, the battery power management has prevented shooting in 4K and 5K reliably, varying depending on the type of lenses used. After making Leica aware of this issue, Leica’s Head of Product Management, Professional Photo System and co-designer of the SL2 Stephan Schulz has been on my case and I have been on his!
The good news is that Leica are investigating the possibility of a firmware update to alleviate the problem and I will be carrying out testing duties for Leica on the video side going forward.
The Leica SL2 battery grip is on the way from Wetzlar and could offer an instant solution, but this needs to be tested. Here we hear directly from Stephan at Leica Camera AG, in this exclusive interview on EOSHD…
If you have ever taken a photo on a street or made a video in public, the European Union is opening you up to copyright claims by – get this – the owners of advertisements, building facades and even privacy violation claims from the general public.

The Uncertainty Has Settled is available at Vimeo On Demand! (https://vimeo.com/ondemand/theuncertaintyhassettled)
“Are we doing the right thing?” That’s the question The Uncertainty Has Settled explores, and you may ask yourself the same thing about shooting Magic Lantern for the big screen! Crazy or inspired? My friend in Berlin, Volker Schmidt was behind the camera on this film, and the decision to shoot Magic Lantern raw video on the ‘vintage’ 5D Mark II…
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.
I have just released a Setup Guide for the Samsung NX1. This guide makes the camera compatible with a range of LUTs so you can more easily apply stylistic moods to 4K footage in post.
Along with the LOG conversion workflow, the guide explains the best settings for the NX1 and what you must know before using it for video work.
