Making sense of sensors: Part 1 of 2

Published in Technology & Computing

Film always used to be the main thing that determined how a photograph looked. Now, it's the sensor. So camera manufacturers have taken on a huge extra responsibility!

How to take still pictures from a 4K video shoot

Published in Production

With video cameras now sporting 4K video - that's the equivalent of 8 Megapixels, each frame is capable of looking like a pretty decent still photograph. This means that not only can you grab high quality frames from video to use in still image media, it might actually be the best way in the future to do still photography, because you will have a wonderful, 24 or even 60 frames per second to choose your stills from

Rumours are surfacing all around of a 46 megapixel camera from Sony. (Just like the rumours about a 46 megapixel camera from Canon!)

There's still life in compressed video...

Published in Production

While it's tempting to think that with the Magic Lantern EOS raw hack out in the open that normal, compressed video will never be good enough again, that's taking far too strict a line on it. The fact is that the conventional video output from cameras like the EOS 5D MK III is very good indeed with the exception of certain well-known issues like moire and rolling shutter

 Hidden under the surface, there are some very big changes happening with the big manufacturers

Canon is bringing out a wired remote controller for its Cinema EOS cameras, apparently as a result of user requests

 There was a lot of news at IBC2014, particularly on the camera and camera accessory front, and we published a lot of stories as a result (with more still in the pipeline). Here, in case you’ve missed any of our coverage, are the highlights so far (with added Photokina).

Shooting in 4K underwater with a Canon 1DC

Despite costing significantly more than its HD-only sibling, the Canon 1DC is selling well, apparently. And when you see this footage, you'll understand why

How is it that Sony is now the leading innovator with still cameras that can be used for video?

Most of us despair when we see technology and science presented to a non-technical audience on TV. It's not easy to explain stuff in the short time available, but often it's over-simplified to the point of being nonsensical. So how does a national UK broadcaster deal with the topic of 4K?
