Resist the temptation to make future predictions based upon current technology.

With the anticipation surrounding the forthcoming S1 firmware update the last thing anyone was expecting was a brand new camera. But that's exactly what Panasonic just gave us. Even if it turned out to be the worst kept secret on the internet!

Atomos has just redefined what an on-set monitor can do.

It is no secret that we’re enthusiastic about higher resolutions here at RedShark, yet debates still continue to rage. But high resolutions are now an everyday part of production, and we are seeing the benefits in spades. I think it is now beyond debate. Here's why.

Technological history is full of devices that were designed to solve a problem, but were made irrelevant through new developments. Is the motorised gimbal one of them?

This week Apple slipped out an update to its MacBook Pro range. An incredibly powerful no less, and it's probably not as expensive as you were thinking.

It's not exactly a secret that if you work with VFX, Adobe After Effects is pretty much the industry standard, and while there are alternatives such as Blackmagic Design's Fusion, such software needs a lot of time and practice to learn well. FXhome has some very intriguing developments upcoming that may make you reconsider what you use.

Sometimes the most amazing images come not from post production manipulation or CGI, but the real world. And it would be difficult to see a a more stark illustration of this than this incredible video.

The action camera market is, if you look at it as a whole, a pretty crowded place. But while there are a lot of different models available, there are surprisingly few that stand out as being exceptional.

Teradek's brand new bolt for Sony VENICE makes wireless video an integral part of the camera.

Today's low cost camera equipment is better than the gear television used to use for its high end programming. Yet we rarely remember just how poor the quality of television used to be.

Samsung's latest 64MP sensor takes the phone resolution wars to entirely new scales. And it doesn't look like you will sacrifice low light ability either.
