F55: Where does it fit?

Phil Rhodes holds an F55 for the first time and tells us where he thinks it fits in the digital cinematography marketplace

Sony sets out its vision

Published in Business

Sony's press conference at the IBC is always worth going to, not necessarily because of new product announcements but because there are always new facts and figures, as well as a glimpse at future directions and priorities

We understand that Sony's prices for the F5 and F55 cameras will be released on Tuesday 27th November. This eagerly awaited announcement has the potential to reshape the digital cinematography landscape

We were a little bit underwhelmed when we saw the first footage from the F55, not because there's anything wrong with the camera - far from it;  but because it was shot incredibly flat, and we kind of expected something a bit more eye-catching than that. The whole experience set us off on what was essentially a rant about how you shouldn't use YouTube or Vimeo to judge the quality of a camera

After two weeks of teasing, the NewF is here. And the big surprise is that the NewF is not just a camera but rather an entire ecosystem. Ned Soltz, our NY reporter, brings us the details.

It dawned on me just the other day: we are living in the future. There is so much innovation and new technology around us that it no longer feels like we're merely living in the present. It's as if we're in a science fiction movie where we've been transported forward by ten or twenty years

 Cheaper, cinematic cameras come with a cost - they tend to have Rolling Shutters, which means that rapid movement can be skewed. In the next few months, you'll be able to buy cameras with Global Shutters at all price points. This can't come soon enough, according to Phil Rhodes

4K cameras: A rundown of what's available now

Published in Production

In between IBC and NAB, most of the newly-announced 4K cameras are on sale. So before the expected avalanche of 4K announcements and previews at NAB, we thought we'd ask Phil Rhodes to run though what you can buy now

Why do people put video from one of the world's top cameras on YouTube with the expectation that we can judge the quality of the material? Just to make it perfectly clear: video on YouTube is highly compressed.
