The merging of technologies is tricky. Sometimes it succeeds and sometimes it fails miserably. One fantastic idea, though, was to combine the SmallHD Focus 5 monitor with the Teradek Bolt 500 RX. And that idea exists in the form of the SmallHD Focus Bolt 500 RX. We went to visit the SmallHD stand at IBC 2019 and spoke to SmallHD co-founder and CTO, Dale Backus to find out more about it.
With all the gear announcements lately, it’s easy to miss a relatively small name like Godox, but they’ve just announced some updates to their popular Lithium-ion powered range of flash units, and their QT600 studio strobes.
The big news here is that Godox have also added Sony TTL to the Godox X series of 2.4Ghz radio triggers and radio enabled flash units.
Slow motion is a very useful technique commonly used these days. In fact, it is used so often that it’s becoming hard to keep one’s attention for more than just a few seconds.
However, adding camera movement to slow motion videos creates a dynamic and often mesmerizing look, and using a crazy-fast frame rate doesn’t hurt either.
Obviously great equipment needs to be matched with great talent, and that’s exactly what happened when the team at Stiller Studios got their hands on a Bolt High Speed Cinebot and a Phantom Flex4K Camera.
Two days of filming later, the result is a powerful 1,000 frames-per-second, slow motion show reel, portraying the remarkable capabilities of this state-of-the-art equipment. Well, that and the copious amounts of raw talent these guys have.
