The art of Colour Rendering

Published in Post & VFX

Human beings come in a variety of exciting colours. Rendering those colours in a pleasing way has been a goal of photography since before photography actually had colours, but it's always going to be an incredibly subjective issue

Making sense of Sensors - part 2

Published in Technology & Computing

As we saw in my previous article on sensor technology, we can now build sensors with enormous numbers attached to them - if not trivially, at least reliably. Given that current 4K sensors are more than adequate to replace 35mm film in terms of sheer resolution, we need to be careful about turning this into a numbers game.

If you use a professional digital camera, you can't go far without understanding the relationship between sensors, lenses and depth of field. It's slightly more complicated than you might have thought!. Phil Rhodes makes it understandable

How to understand Dynamic Range

Published in Technology & Computing

Camera performance is now measured as much in terms of Dynamic Range as Resolution. Phil Rhodes explains this essential aspect of camera technology

First Sony F5 video short

Published in Production

Here's the first video we've seen shot on Sony's new F5 (as opposed to the Global Shutter'ed F55)

Recently I've been expressing the view that all cameras are pretty much the same, because they all use the similar technology (give or take) for their sensors. I don't mean to be unnecessarily cruel about the work of camera manufacturers – taking an electronic component such as an imaging sensor and making it into a usable tool is far from trivial. Still, the absolute performance of cameras is determined by what you can get off the lump of silicon behind the lens

Now you can use the moon as a lighting rig

Published in Technology & Computing

Canon is one of the relatively few manufacturers that develops its own sensors. This means that they're in a great position to create new sensors with new capabilities, and that's just what they've done with their new 35mm Full Frame CMOS sensor for video capture

Dramatic claims from RED: 21 stops from Dragon!

Published in Technology & Computing

RED and, say, Sony are diametrically different in so many ways, and perhaps no more so than in the way that the EPIC manufacturer absolutely loves to let information about new products seep from every pore

Patent litigation is not a spectator sport

Published in Business

You may have heard that one of the top camera manufacturers is taking legal action against another for alleged patent infringement. This is news, but there's very little point in speculating about the outcome at this stage. Only a select group of people working for those companies will have access to evidence that proves the rights or wrongs of the case. We certainly don't
