When I saw the first reviews of the Osee 4k UltraHD monitors, I was impressed. I really wanted to get a unit and see if the price tag (more than Lilliputs and Feelworlds, less than Atomos) made sense. It had a lot to offer, at least on paper: 3000 NITS, both HDMI and SDI pass-through loops, and an IPS panel. We got a G7 kit and used it for a month. Our tl;dr – it’s awesome; for a full breakdown, hit the jump.
A while back, DJI made some FPV race drones, goggles, and remote. It had the unimaginative name of Digital FPV System and cyborg look. This product line opened up DJI to the racing segment of the drone market. It only feels natural that DJI will take a swing at merging their racing drone line with their cinema drone line. And what do you know? Photos of this synergy hybrid just leaked.
If you are a heavy Photoshop user, you have probably accumulated a few panels over the years. Maybe some Infinite panels, or Color panels, or that Pro panel that Ole reviewed yesterday. If you have a bunch, they are a nightmare to manage. They either take up a lot of real estate on your monitor, or they are not convenient to access. Enter the Extension Manager.
Adobe has a great sale for Black Friday. They are selling their all-apps subscription that usually costs around $52.99/month for only $39.99/month. No doubt that this is a great bargain, but there is a caveat. This deal is only available to new customers. If you are already an Adobe customer, you would have to keep paying your usual $52.99.
There is a way around this though, that lets you get the new price. But first, a word about newcomers get a discount sales. If you don’t care about that, just jump to the end of the post.
If you are using photoshop for a while, you just have gone from Photoshop 2020 to Photoshop 2021. but if you are using Photoshop for a really long time, like me, you may even go back to Photoshop 2015. Or even CS6, who knows…
Here is the thing, each time that you update, photoshop keeps a copy of many of your options, settings, brushes, presets, and many more. Adobe is clever to not purge those folders when you update. Who knows, maybe a bug will force you to revert…
But, apparently, you can definitely throw away the older version and save quite a bit of space. (The same can be said for space-saving with Lightroom, I guess Adobe does not care about space when they push an update)
I remember when my office had a 10-Megabytes drive (Mega, with an M). It was (give or take) the size and weight of a car tire. A few weeks ago, I got the T7 SSD from Samsung. It is two Terabytes big and the size of a credit card. I feel old.
Not only does this drive boasts an impressive 2TB storage, but it also claims to run at read speeds up to 1,050 MB/s and writes at speeds up to 1,000 MB/s. This is quite impressive, so, of course, we had to put it to the test.
Working with video often requires big storage and fast speeds. Here, we use SSDs to either capture the video directly (like with the BMPCC) or to create an on-location backup (like with everything we do). When we need to evaluate the performance of an SSD, we turn to benchmark software.
There are many SSD benchmarking tools out there. CrystalDiskMark is probably ranked at the top, but there are others too. For video, though, one of the best benchmarking software is the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test. Sadly it is only available for Mac. I use a PC. So in this tutorial, I will show you how to install and enable the Blackmagic Disk Speed Test on a PC.
Here is a screenshot I did not think I’ll see. Lightroom connected and tethered with a Sony A7III. I mean, Sony has been tethering with Capture One for ages, but Lightroom Classic? Uh uh! Mostly because Sony and Adobe never found a way to share the needed codebase.
But now comes Tether Tools, and fr a mere $69.95, give all Sony shooters the capability they always longed for.
If you have been using the unlimited storage feature of G Suite to back up your photos and videos, wait before moving into Google Workplace. Google Workspace only has unlimited storage on enterprise plans.
Google made some big noise about replacing the G Suite with an even better Google Workspace. Among the many changes that may or may not be incredible for you, one change is clearly not in favor of high storage users.
If you or your team were using G Suite Business, you would get unlimited storage for $12/user. If I recall correctly, you needed at least four users to enroll in that level of service. Now Google Workspace will only give you 2 TB of storage for your $12, 5TB for $18, and according to Android Police, you can move to an Enterprise account for $20 ($30 for enterprise+) and get the same unlimited storage. However, it will be at least 50% significantly more expensive.
If you are like everyone else stuck at home, trying to live stream, you probably know about live switching. A switcher is a box that lets you control multiple cameras; The live part enables you to push the stream into Facebook or Youtube. Black magic has a basic ATEM mini for four cameras for $300. Now Feelworld has the LIVEPRO L1 – a four-camera switcher with a frigging LCD for the same price.
