I just took delivery of my iPhone 8 Plus today and decided to give it a whirl out in the great outdoors, so I took a little trip to Chickies Ridge/Rock to put it through its paces.
I have a love/hate relationship with continuous lighting. On one hand, I see the absolute necessity in bringing it along for every single shoot, especially since I tend to use smaller-sensor cameras that aren't necessarily the best low-light performers. Enter the Scorpion Lights. (That totally sounds like a kung fu movie)
As a video editor, occasional graphic artist, and hoarder of all manner of digital files I feel like I can never have enough space and, more importantly, enough disk performance. The faster your disk array, the more concurrent video streams you can play, the smoother playback of high resolution or high framerate videos will be, etc. It's with all this in mind that I can confidently declare the ExaSAN A08S3-PS one of the best RAID arrays I've ever used, but at a cost.
Speaking as a DSLR/Blackmagic Pocket shooter, I have a lot of SD cards of various speeds and sizes lying around. I thought removing them from the equation and switching to (surprising similarly priced) SSD drives would be a challenge, but it's actually proved far easier than I imagined with the Atomos Ninja Blade.
