When you set up to shoot an interview, the angles and frames you choose can make or break the video. In this post, we will go over ten different angles that you can use when shooting interviews. You can think of it as a personal cheat sheet for interviews. Some of the ideas are for your A-camera, and some are for B-cam. We used a RED Dragon on a Manfrotto 645 FAST and 504x head as our A-cam, and a BMPCC 4K on a Manfrotto 635 FAST and an old MVH500AH head.
We don’t write about batteries often; I mean, they are batteries, they deliver power, that’s the end of it, right? The V200MICRO from Bebob showed me that there is still room for innovation in the v-mount space. And that you can innovate even without adding an App-enabled battery to your line.
Computer chairs are not something very exciting. Unless they look like a scorpion and shape-shift like a transformer. Say hello to the Cluvens Scorpion Computer Cockpit. A $3,299.00 behemoth that will occupy your entire room. Then again, it probably has all that you need to edit, then maybe its ok that there is no room left.
Here is an address you would probably never visit unless you saw it in a DJI official tweet: dji.com/teaser. Aside from a small play of light and a black and red handle we don’t get so see much of the Gimbal.
September 9 is the date for the announcements (it may be the 10th if you live in Australia though). This date falls inside IBC’s original date, or the new online IBC showcase, so I hope its something big.
(It goes without saying that) This article is not sponsored or commissioned by Canon, this article represents what I really felt when using the Canon EOS R5 at concerts, and I don’t even intend to convince anyone to agree with me or buy the camera, it’s just my opinion.
For the sake of this review, I took the EOS R5 with me to shoot a concert. It was a perfectly safe concert, with no live audience. The lighting, stage, and singer were very real though. So aside from the minimalistic audience, this was a real, live show. That allowed me to test the camera in a real-life concert-shooting scenario.
Whatever your camera is, you probably have an App to turn your phone into a wireless monitor. Sony has Imaging Edge; Canon has Camera Connect; Fuji has Camera Remote; Panasonic has Lumix Sync and Nikon has Wireless Mobile Utility. What’s common to all those remote control apps is that they work over WiFi and display horrible Lag. That the lack of creativity in the apps’ names.
What if there was a cheap way to convert any Android phone into a wired, low latency, high brightness HDMI monitor? Youtuber Neon Airship shares how to accomplish that for about $20. It involves as little as a tiny capture card and an OTG cable. The good news, you already own the expensive monitor, it’s your phone.
If you thought that the Canon EOS R5 will take a beating for its heating issues, think again. The R5 just won top seller over at B&H, and is ranked as the #1 seller in the mirrorless category. The second and third in line are EOS R6, and Sony A7III which held the first position for a very long time is now only ranked in the third spot.
[note: if you look at the B&H site via mobile Canon EOS M50 and Sony a6100 hold places 3 and 4, I suspect that it has more to do with their usage as streaming cameras and not with those bodies being used for actual shooting, but we will have to see what happens to sales once COVID-19 goes away. More on that below]
According to the Australian website, Inside Imaging, the Kodak paper and chemistry business was just sold to a Chinese company, Sino Promise Holdings. Sino is a relatively young company and according to their website, they were established in 1993 and are the largest distributor of Kodak Alaris in the world.
According to Inside Imaging, Kodak made an internal announcement about the purchase on July 7th.

When you start looking for free video editing software, it often feels like the choice is limitless. But when you start testing, you find out that most programs either put a watermark on your video or cut video export resolution options.
