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 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.
Also known as the Canon SL1, the EOS100D is Canon’s smallest ever DSLR. It’s even smaller and lighter than the EOS 1300D (Rebel T6). It’s been out for about four years now, and shares features similar to the EOS 700D (Rebel T5i). It’s been largely ignored, though, as a “beginner camera”. As it turns out, though, this inexpensive little body could be the perfect cheap camera for video.
An article just posted over on EOSHD describes how to get 10Bit RAW video with the EOS 100D using Magic Lantern. CinemaDNG files that you can import straight into DaVinci Resolve, or transcode to 10Bit ProRes 422 LT. There are a couple of caveats, though. These are due to the slower SD card slots, that limit your framerate and resolution.
Apple is now doing to Quicktime what Adobe did to Flash a few years ago. Not for the same reasons, but the impact is similar.
Apple has stopped updating its Quicktime software for Windows and now the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team issued an Alert (TA16105-A), which recommends Windows users uninstall Apple QuickTime from their computers. While I’d guess Quicktime was not the favorite player for many, there are several dependencies within Premiere that will make this move very unpopular with video editors.
