The Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K took NAB 2018 by storm. It really was the talk of the show and everyone prior to it was hoping for an update and they got it. The camera is now shipping but it’s not available in large quantities yet. Demand is high and production doesn’t look to be matching it. While this seems to be an issue with Blackmagic I thought they solved this with the release of the URSA Mini Pro but the Pocket 4K seems to be business as usual when it comes to delivery.
It’s not the equipment, it’s what you do with it. The majority of feature films are shot on expensive cameras but occasionally there are exceptions. “The Possession Of Hannah Grace” which hit theaters just after Thanksgiving, was shot with the Sony α7S II.
The DJI Osmo Pocket was just announced, and luckily here at Newsshooter, we have been able to get hold of a full production version for a couple of days to review. So without further ado, let’s get on with it.
According to latest rumors Panasonic giving hints about possible announcement of Panasonic 8K Video camera in near future. It all started with an interview, Panasonic France Manager clearly hinted that they can make Panasonic 8K M4/3 camera in near future. Take a look at the statement
The Atomos Ninja V was announced back in April, just prior to the NAB show. At that time we were unable to see the 5.2″ HDMI monitor/recorders 1000 nit screen and new user interface, as the device was still in the early stages of development. Even though Erik had some hands-on time with a pre-production version of the Ninja V, I thought we should do our due diligence and do a full review of a production model.
According to latest rumors surfaced over the web, Canon is rumored announce a new entry level camera Mirrorless camera with 4K capability on October 2019 or before that. Canon is also working on advance control ring for APS-C Mirrorless camera and we may also see introduction of Multi-function bar in upcoming Canon EOS M5 Mark II camera.
Ok last year Canon said they will cannabilze DSLRs to promote Mirrorless camera, and they did also. They haven’t updated the long overdue 7D Mk II camera (no longer in production / discontinued) and no DSLRs announced in 2018. Now, latest rumor coming from rumor mill suggest that Canon killed one of its DSLR development in favor of Mirrorless camera. May be 5DS line dumped up and we will see a high-resolution mirrorless solution for that.
The new SYRP Magic Carpet Pro is a heavyweight slider with some style. Over the past few years, we have had a ton of options when it comes to sliders and options are now what sets them apart. No longer will a one-trick pony do. For video production, having the ability to add a motorized head that has a programmable parallax option for interviews so the subject stays in the middle while the camera slides back and forth is really great. For time-lapse shooters, they want all the fancy motion control settings to get those cool sweeping time-lapse shots, but it all starts with the slider and the SYRP Magic Carpet Pro is one smooth criminal. Cue Michelle Jackson!
