Jonathan did an amusing - and informative - video about the Canon C300 last year, and now he's back with a look at Canon's Cine lenses:
This is a comparison and test shoot of Canon's new Cinema Primes versus Canon's revered L series still photography lenses. Shot on a Canon C300.
Panasonic unveils new A100 wearable HD camcorder | Shane McGlaun | Slash Gear
I always thought Sony's HXR-MC1 little recorder would be cool for shooting some things (or hanging from the ceiling) but at almost $2,000, I just couldn't afford it. This thing is supposed to be around $300!
The camera can also be mounted to a helmet or to a backpack. The camera is designed to be waterproof with an IPX8 waterproof design allowing the camera to shoot in water up to 5 feet deep for 30 minutes. The camera is also dustproof to protect sensitive electronics from sand. The camera has integrated Wi-Fi connectivity making it easy to live broadcast streaming video using Ustream in full HD resolution.
RØDE launches iXY microphone for iPad and iPhone - with DSLR Shooters in mind
| Dan Chung | DSLR News Shooter
Hmmm....could be useful for my iPhone 4 once I get a new phone...but $199....
The iXY is a plug in stereo microphone module that promises high quality recordings up to 24-bit/96kHz. Importantly for video shooters the accompanying RØDE Rec app that runs on the iPhone or iPad is capable of recording at a more video friendly 48kHz too – which should make for easier syncing in dual-system sound setups.

Inside the Canon EOS-1D C | CanonRumors
CanonRumors attempts to answer the question everyone who has $12,000 is asking: is the EOS-1D C really any different from the EOS-1D X?
Is it different from the EOS-1D X?
We had a chance to peer inside the EOS-1D C (No photos allowed) to find out how much it differed from the EOS-1D X. The differences are minimal, the biggest change is the heat sink inside the camera to keep the sensor circuitry cool during 4K video operation.
New Flagship [Consumer] JVC Camera Designed to Capture Fast-Moving Action | DV Info net
Who ever came up with the idea of mixing decimals with fractions for sensor dimensions should be shot... 1/2.3”, what's that?! It looks like this is a fixed lens camera too...
The camera shoots Full HD 1920 x 1080/60p video at 36Mbps, a bit rate that allows Full HD slow-motion playback, perfect for motion analysis or special effects. Premium performance is further assured by the fast F1.2 lens, 1/2.3” 12.8 megapixel back-illuminated CMOS sensor and optical image stabilization. Five shooting speeds are available, ranging from 120fps to 600fps, easily selected using a dial conveniently located next to the lens.
Creating Dailies in Davinci Resolve 9 | Andy Shipsides | AbelCine
In the conclusion of my previous Gemini 4:4:4 series, I discussed how to bring footage into Resolve to start a dailies process. Now I’m moving on to the step-by-step process of creating basic dailies with synced audio and simple color corrections, using footage shot in Canon Log, Canon C500 RAW footage shot with the Gemini 4:4:4, and Blackmagic Raw footage from the Blackmagic Cinema camera.
Audio rig | Bruno Chansou | Vimeo
Interesting rig for mounting your recorder at your waist so you can see and operate it. It seems crazy at first, but almost seems like a good idea when he's done...
That's my handheld recorder rig solution. If this video was helpful, tip it or play and share my short films.
It's official: 3D is dead | Vlad Savov | The Verge
Well, I did spend much of last year trying to kill it....you're welcome.
On the one hand, 3D has become ubiquitous enough in televisions that people are unwittingly buying it when opting for a high-end new HDTV to fill their living room void — yet on the other, every big TV maker at CES has waved a clear white flag on trying to sell 3D TV as an important feature.
