Adobe Stock is now natively integrated with Photoshop and the Creative Cloud, and there just doesn’t seem to be a need for Fotolia anymore. So, it’s disappearing. Specifically, the Fotolia website will close on November 5th, 2019.
Originally an Aputure product line, Deity is now its own separate company focusing on quality microphones. They have quickly become favourites of those who’ve tried them. I have a Deity S-Mic 2 myself (review coming soon!) and it very quickly proved its worth. Now, Deity is looking towards on-camera sound with the launch of two new on-camera shotgun microphones; The V-Mic D3 and V-Mic D3 Pro.
Photography is all about light. But just as much as that, it’s also about a lack of it. Shadows are just as important to your scene as the well lit areas, and they can really help to sell your story and add a lot of drama.
In this video, the guys of Aputure’s A Team walk us through using negative fill to help create that contrast and drama in your scene. And while they’re primarily talking about video, the same principle applies for stills, too.
The old megapixel wars seem to have mostly died off when it comes to photography. But for video, companies are pushing for higher and higher resolutions every year, it seems. As soon as 1080p became standard, they started pushing 4K. Now that 4K has become more accepted, it’s time for 8K.
The Sony A7II & 28-70mm kit is currently on massive discount at B&H. They’ve dropped the price from the A7II kit’s regular $1,598 down to a mere $998. That’s almost a 40% discount. But it’s not just the camer and lens. The kit also comes with a 32GB 90MB/sec SanDisk Extreme memory card, a spare battery and an external charger.
When Yongnuo teased a new mirrorless camera the other day, there wasn’t really any information to go along with it. Pretty much the only thing we new for sure was that it had 4G capability. But we could make a few assumptions based on what we saw and prior Yongnuo history.
Now, some of those assumptions have been confirmed as Yongnuo has released the specs for the yet-to-be-named new camera, which currently bears the code YN450. And there are a couple of surprises…
It’s not news that Canon was looking to sell their 120-megapixel CMOS sensor, but now they’ve set up a platform specifically for selling their sensors in the industrial market. Three sensors are currently listed on the new Canon CMOS Sensors website. There’s the 120MP sensor, along with a 2.76MP extreme low light sensitivity sensor and a 5MP global shutter CMOS sensor.
These three sensors, along with a fourth 250-megapixel sensor, will all be on display at VISION, the world’s leading machine vision trade fair.
As the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K has come closer to general release, I’ve started pushing myself to break away from Premiere Pro and really learn how to use DaVinci Resolve as an editor. I’m at the point where I know just enough to be dangerous, but I’ve still got a lot to learn. One of the things I’ve wanted to learn is multicam editing.
In these videos, photographer Alex Matravers shows us two different ways to sync up multiple cameras in Resolve for multicam editing. The first uses the audio recording from each camera to automatically align everything. The second shows us how we can sync multiple cameras without having to rely on audio at all.
