Sometimes, the video editing and visual effects jobs we get can demand some pretty hardcore specs for maximum performance. While we were at NAB 2019, we spotted a PC on the ASUS stand that definitely seemed to have specs that fall under that “hardcore” category. We spoke with ASUS to find out more.

Although Laowa does make a cinema mod version of their crazy 24mm f/14 Probe lens, they’re not really known for their cinema lenses. Because they haven’t really made any, until now. At NAB 2019, we saw a couple of pretty cool new lenses on the Laowa stand. 12mm T2.9 prime and a 25-100mm T2.9 zoom cinema lenses. So, we stopped to have a chat with them.
Timelapse is a subject that many photographers and filmmakers have tried. But sometimes, a couple of hours just isn’t long enough to shoot the sequence that you really need. In construction, for example, you might need to keep shooting for up to a month, or even more.
While we were visiting NAB 2019, we took the opportunity to have another chat with Ben from Syrp. We wanted to find out more about how camera sliders and motion control heads can be used in practical situations. Typically, we see sliders being used for timelapse creation, but we wanted to know more about how they could be used for video. So, here Ben shows us how we can use the Syrp Genie II 3-Axis Pro Slider Kit to add a B camera to an interview.
The Digital Imaging Technician Cart (or “DIT Cart”) is where all of the media is ingested from a shoot and organised once it’s captured. G-Technology was showing off how some of their kit integrates into a DIT cart at NAB 2019, so we had a chat with them to find out more about it and how it helps with film set workflow.
Whenever a new camera is released, the first company to produce cages and accessories for them is usually SmallRig. We use a lot of SmallRig kit here at DIYP, too. We caught up with them on their booth at NAB 2019 to find out about their latest offerings for the Sony A6400, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and the Zhiyun Weebill LAB gimbal.
Manfrotto’s new Nitrotech 608 and Nitrotech 612 fluid video tripod heads represent the latest in Manfrotto’s fluid head technology. Designed to offer the smoothest level of control and movement possible, the two new heads immediately drew our attention at NAB 2019. So, we stopped by the stand to have a chat and find out more.
Feelworld’s range of entry-level monitors have become quite popular over the last couple of years. Although they don’t offer all the bells and whistles we might find on monitors from Aputure and SmallHD, they’re plenty good enough for many hybrid shooters and specific use cases where those bells and whistles might be overkill.
The Feelworld F6 has been a very popular monitor, but Feelworld was showing off a new F6 Plus at NAB 2019, so we spoke with them to take a closer look and find out more.
There are quite a lot of sliders out there these days, and many of them are excellent for timelapse, but quite a few of them have one big problem when it comes to video. That problem is noise, which can make it difficult to not only get a good sync track on the camera, but the slider can actually be picked up by dedicated microphones for external audio, too.
