Nick Shirrell had some fun at a recent IndyCar race, he decided to shoot some footage using a Canon Super 8 camera from 1968. It’s kind of cool seeing current events shot on this old hardware.
Wireless video is all the rage now, primarily due to the lower price points as well as improved performance. Freeing your camera from a cable is a huge improvement on set allowing a director or producer not to have to be next to you while shooting or worrying if someone will trip over that video cable. We have all had close calls with that one.
The DJI Ronin-S is a beastly single-handed gimbal that can take a heavy payload. Today, DJI introduced a new, fully-featured lighter single-handed 3-axis gimbal called the Ronin-S Compact (SC). The Ronin-SC is designed for mirrorless cameras. It weighs 2.4 lbs (1.1kg) making it 41% lighter than the Ronin-S. The gimbals payload is 4.4 lbs (1.99 kg) making a complete camera package under 7 lbs (3.17kg) much more manageable to operate.
The Teradek RT wireless FIZ system is an interesting concept that leverages technology from multiple brands. With products increasingly becoming a combination of both hardware and software, I was interested to see just how well Teradek’s RT wireless FIZ system blends both of them together.
Last month, we recently shared an article about a piece of hardware called Dish Timecode that was in development by Ari Krupnik which used satellites to embed timestamps into files. The project has now been launched on Kickstarter.
