As well as the Ursa Mini 4.6K Pro camera announced last night, Blackmagic also unveiled two new control panels for DaVinci Resolve: the $995 DaVinci Resolve Micro Panel and the $2995 DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel.
Opinion: Amidst all the hoopla and chest-beating surrounding the wrong name being read out at the Oscars ceremony, amidst all the expected political point-scoring and bun-fighting, was the shameful ridiculing of the Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards presented earlier in the month.
RedShark Review: Blackmagic’s recent unveiling of a trio of TV switching, recording and streaming products was exactly the sort of pulling the rug from under the rest of the industry announcement that the company specialises in. And happily their real world performance matches their impressive spec.
We’ve already covered the announcement of Sony’s FE 100mm f2.8 STF GM OSS and FE 85mm f1.8 lenses, but just the other day Ned Soltz was part of a group of journalists who had the opportunity to shoot with both lenses and to grill Sony about them. He left the shoot impressed.
Ned Soltz liked the look of the Sony FS7 II so much he bought one. Happily, in unboxing it and pairing it with the new Sony 18-110 f/4 lens and a loaned Zacuto VCT Pro Baseplate, he reckons he has a reliable workhorse that is very much worth the money.
Sony’s announcement of two new E-mount lenses (and a flash with remote capabilities) yesterday probably says as much about what else Sony is working on as it does about the products themselves.
If you want a good yardstick for technological progress in cameras, their increasing capability in low light shows just how fast development is progressing. And while the Pentax KP might be limited on the video side compared to some of its peers, a 819200 ISO in a $1099 unit is astonishing.
