I have captured photos of stars above distant thunderstorms before, but I never imagined I would be able to capture the Milky Way above a nearby thunderstorm. While out storm chasing in Eastern Montana on June 4, 2018, that’s exactly what happened.

Nobody can throw a spectacular light show like nature can. Timelapse photographer Ron Risman is well aware of this, so he chased a storm to create a magnificent timelapse of thunderstorm raging over a field in Kansas. He shot it in 4K and combined it with epic music (reminds me of music from Warcraft). As a result, he got spectacular thunderstorms striking at the beat of the song. It’s amazing for both watching and listening. Take your earphones, play the video, and enjoy!
The name Mike Olbinski has become fairly synonymous with with amazing weather timelapse films. And he’s kicked 2017 off to an amazing start with Pulse, a 4K black & white timelapses showing some absolutely incredible storms and tornadoes.
We’re so used to seeing these things full of vibrant colour, that black & white often looks quite dull by comparison. Pulse, however, is beautifully processed, adding nothing but drama and a heightened sense of nature’s overwhelming power.
G-technology is no stranger to mass storage. The company is leading the market when it come to high performance storage for creative people. The G-Dock ev with Thunderbolt is one of those storage devices. It’s has everything you’d expect from a device aimed at creative professionals and also those who see themselves as such; It’s extremely well built, looks “pro” and works as it should – fantastically. (I guess you can tell where this review is going to go… we love it!)[Read More…]
They said it couldn’t be done, that I was wasting my time, that it was impossible to take a time exposure photo of a daytime missile launch… in color… directly into a Florida sunrise… from ten miles away.
If anybody would know, Arch Smith would.
ASUS is going all out on mobile content creation lately. After their recent announcement of the very creator-focused ZenFone 6, they have today followed it up by announcing the ASUS ZenBook Pro Duo. The latest model in their ZenBook Pro lineup, boasts a pair of 4K displays, an i9 processor, up to 32GB RAM and an Nvidia RTX2060 GPU.
The G-Technology Shuttle XL EV is a beast of a RAID array and has the storage and speed to deal with just about anything you can throw at it. Or so they say.
As anyone who has read any of my articles before, you would know that as a video producer, I need lots and lots of fast storage. And if you haven’t read any of my stuff before, well, just assume that as a video producer, I need lots and lots of fast storage. 😉
ASUS hasn’t traditionally been the first name photographers and video editors turn towards when it comes to monitors. While their motherboards, graphics cards and other components have been extremely popular for years, their monitors haven’t always been held in the same regard.
They have definitely improved over the last few years, though, and ASUS has now really stepped up to the plate with their latest ProArt announcements. Two of them were being showcased at NAB 2019; the PQ22UC 21.6″, a USB powered 4K OLED 10-Bit HDR display, and the PA32UCX, a 32″ desktop monitor also offering excellent specs for imaging & video editing. We spoke with ASUS about the new monitors while we were there to find out more.
When it comes to editing on location, particularly video, the biggest challenge is finding laptops with enough grunt to really let you get the performance you need to work through things quickly. And while there are some great laptops out there for this kind of work, you do start to feel those bottlenecks after a while.
ASUS has a response to that, though, with the new ASUS StudioBook S W700, a laptop offering an Intel Xeon CPU, up to 64GB RAM, up to 4TB M.2 storage and an Nvidia Quadro GPU. DIYP spoke with ASUS at NAB 2019 about the new StudioBook S laptop and its capabilities.
