Adobe has really been impressing me lately with their new design language and quickly-released software iterations. Specifically, I’m referring to Premiere Rush CC and how accessible and delightful it is.
This is currently the most exciting video camera on the market. For under $2000, you get a camera that can shoot 6K Anamorphic video in 10-bit HDR using the brand-new HEVC. That's a ludicrous amount of technology running in such a small camera body.
I used the afternoon today to play around with the new-enabled HEVC/H.265 video on newer iOS devices to compare file sizes, quality, etc.
I've always had a huge appreciation for Edelkrone's equipment despite having only used the original SliderPlus several years ago. This looks like a genuinely useful addition to any videographer's gear bag, but especially so for wedding videographers who are constantly switching between tripods, monopods, sliders, and more.
Well, I'm all up in your iTunes Store now. I've just released my first video podcast series and I'm really looking forward to seeing how it goes. It's called The Primary Storyline and focuses mainly (for now) on tips and workflows for Final Cut Pro X, Motion, and Compressor, though I'm absolutely open to covering other post-production software should the need arise. If this is your bag, please check it out and if you like it, give a good rating on iTunes so that other people will be able to find it. Thanks and enjoy!
Pretty great idea here, especially for the extreme sports crowd. Being able to offload cards and edit over a Wifi connection seems like a no-brainer. A lot of people might lift their nose at the idea of editing their stuff on a mobile device, but I can say that when I first used the iOS version of iMovie it was a revelation for me. There's something to be said for an Incredible amount of power in such a tiny package.
I'm happy to announce a new personal video project I've had in the works for quite a long time now: Of the Trade.
It's a project I've really taken quite a shining to since I found so many interesting people willing to sit down and have a chat about their work and their lives. Check it out if you get the opportunity, I have quite a few in the pipeline.
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.
