Rotolight Anova vs Aeon for Daylight Use

The Anova, however, is expensive and the recent addition of the Rotolight Aeos to the mix has me curious as to whether it's worth spending the extra money for the output of the Anova. Here's how they breakdown side by side.

Panasonic AG-UX180 UX 4K Camcorder

Panasonic announced the new UX series of 4K video cameras at NAB this week. The AG-UX180 is strangely reminiscent of the game changing SD camera the DVX-100 in terms of body form. 

These new UX cameras will feature a single 1" chip, and 4K recording up to 60fps. Variable frame rate recording in 1080P is planned. Slated release is Fall 2016.

Behind the Photo No. 1 — Fukuoka Waterpark

I started thinking about telling the stories behind some of my favourite photos, and while a photo may be worth 1000 words, they aren't always my words. Don't get me wrong, that is one of my favourite things about photography — the freedom to interpret an image in a personal way — but there are some photos that have personal meaning behind them, and I'd like to share some of those stories.

Why You Shouldn’t Rely on 4k for Resizing in Post

Maybe it’s because I am an old-school, classically trained film curmudgeon, who made his first short films on lower resolution formats like 16mm film (cough), but I personally believe that the words “fix it in post” should be banned from the filmmaking lexicon. This goes for you too still photographers.

Canon 1DX Mark II

So here it is, the Canon 1DX-Mark II. On first glance this camera is a total beast. Some overall highlights taken from this video are:

  • Improved weather sealing and durability
  • 4K video with the ability to grab still frames
  • Touch screen Live View monitor allowing for touch screen focus
  • Dual Pixel CMOS sensor

Sony A7RII vs Sony A7SII

This is one of those extremely confusing Sony isms, so rather than explain every spec in excruciatingly painful mumbo jumbo, I will keep it straight and simple. 

The S2 is great for videographers looking for a small format camera, with a full frame sensor, that can do amazing things.
