I bet you are dying to know more about the Sigma FP that was announced today. A monster capable of shooting 4K 24fps 12bit CinemaDNG. And it does that in a tiny 422g (battery included) 112.6×69.9×45.3mm form factor… That has to be something. One interesting question is how will handling the camera be like?
The upcoming Samsung Galaxy S10 was rumored to have five, and then six cameras, with two of them on the front. They won’t be just numerous but apparently, they’ll also allow you to shoot pretty high-quality selfies. In the latest teaser video posted by Samsung Vietnam, it’s been revealed that the front camera will be capable of shooting 4K videos.
We’ve all seen an assortment of 360-degree cameras in the past few years, but I have to say that QooCam‘s design is the most intriguing. Just imagine being able to switch from 4K 360 to 3D 180 by simply twisting it? Furthermore, it also features a depth-sensing technology that allows you to refocus after taking a photo. It appears to be quite a capable for a camera that’s slightly longer than an iPhone.
The Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K seems to be all people have been talking about since its announcement a few days ago. A 4K raw cinema camera capable of shooting ProRes and CinemaDNG RAW video for under $1300. And while the design might have suggested it, did you know that it’s also a stills camera, too?
YouTuber Kinotika had a quiock play with one during NAB recently and put together this list of the most important things you need to know about this camera.
The original Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera was wildly popular when it was released. A Super 16mm sensor HD camera capable of shooting RAW video at consumer level prices. What’s not to love? It was a great little camera, but it’s not without its issues. Many of the problems with the BMPCC were updated with firmware, but in 2018, such a camera needs more to compete.
And more is what Blackmagic have given us, by announcing the new Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (BMPCC 4K). The sensor size has gone from Super 16mm to a full-size Micro Four Thirds, it’s had an obvious bump up to 4K resolution, and it’s capable of shooting both 4K UHD (3840×2160) 10-Bit ProRes 422 and 4K DCI (4096 x 2160) 12-Bit CinemaDNG RAW.
Currently on display at CES 2018 is the new Removu K1 4K handheld gimbal. Similar in style to the DJI Osmo, with a built-in camera instead of stabilizing your phone or a DSLR, the K1 has one distinct advantage. It features a built-in 1.5″ LCD monitor to show you what that camera’s actually seeing. Originally backed through Indiegogo, the Removu K1 is now on general sale.
Video monitors have seen some pretty rapid development over the last few years. We’ve seen them go from the heavy CRT of the standard definition days to super high resolution, lightweight, battery powered, slim displays we have today. And, oh boy, have they become feature packed.
On the surface, the Convergent Design Apollo seems like any other 4K external video recorder we might see today. Plug in a camera, hit a button and it records, right? Yeah, except for the fact that it costs three grand. This is because the Apollo contains a few features that are pretty special. One of them, is particularly cool, as we see in this video from Caleb Pike at DSLR Video Shooter.
Sending photos through various apps on our smartphones has become one of the most common means of visual communication. Every month, 17 billion photos are sent only through Facebook Messenger. So, Facebook has decided to improve photo sharing for their users. Instead of 2K, you can now send 4K images through Messenger.
