Pre-NAB Rumor: Canon's 4K C200 & C400

Published in Production

We heard this rumor before, but if recent reports can be believed, NAB could bring two new entries into Canon's Cinema EOS camera line.

Ever wonder what a Canon 5D MK2, an NEX FS100 and a Blackmagic Cinema camera look like, side by side? Probably not because two of these are the old models and you'd more likely be thinking about a 5D MK3, an NEX FS700 and the Blackmagic camera. But that doesn't make this any less interesting

4K is really great with anamorphic lenses

Published in Production

The resolution of 4K sensors means that there's easily enough detail to work well with anamorphic lenses for those cinematic ultra-wide aspect ratios

Keeping the pixel-count real

Published in Technology

There are several 4K cameras out there. Remarkable though they are, what the manufacturers mean by “4K” needs some interpretation and explanation.

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

Ned Soltz, our East Coast correspondent, has all the details on the new Sony pricing, and how it will stir up the Digital Cinematography marketplace

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

First 5D mk III RAW videos appear

Published in Technology

We're taking this at face value. If this is what it says it is, it's the first proper video from a Magic Lantern-modified 5D mk III showing actual raw video

Now you can use the moon as a lighting rig

Published in Technology

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

This has been a long time coming, and we never actually thought we'd see it: a clean HDMI output from the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. What does this mean and why is it important?
