Canon kyboshes the competition – full cinema system

Canon has launched, out of the blue as far as we were concerned, a complete fully featured Cinema HD production system including full-frame digital video camcorder and EF-fit lenses designed to compete head-on with the top offerings from Zeiss/Arri and Red.

The Cinema EOS system also competes with Sony right in the heart of Sony . . . → Read More: Canon kyboshes the competition – full cinema system

Sony ‘HowTo’ videos – a different level

Paul Genge of Sony UK noted my criticism of the Sony corporate videos. Well, what Sony were not publicizing so well was that Paul has been making some rather homespun but far more valuable and interesting videos – in fact, going beyond the usual remit of Sony staff to do stuff almost off the cuff.

Sony – please add gain control to A77 sound

When I had the Canon 60D and 600D cameras for the usual brief period of magazine review loan, one of the things I could have tested more thoroughly was the excellent implementation of sound input gain control. Since it worked, and worked really well, I had no need to. Any system with auto gain, in . . . → Read More: Sony – please add gain control to A77 sound

Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

On Saturday, the Household Cavalry chose to provide a guard of honour for a wedding couple lucky enough to have planned their wedding for the day the mounted regiment was in town. I photographed the event from the unique viewpoint of an Alpha 55 fitted with a Sigma 8-16mm superwide zoom, mounted on a . . . → Read More: Alpha 55 video of a rare occasion

Sony DEV-5 and DEV-3 digital HD filming binoculars

An invitation to a Sony event on August 15th seemed perfectly timed for the announcement of the Alpha 77 and 65, NEX-7 and NEX-5n. In fact, those cameras were launched in Greece on August 24th – and Photoclubalpha, as a very minor player in this business, was not on the guest list. Nor could we . . . → Read More: Sony DEV-5 and DEV-3 digital HD filming binoculars

Wait for the NEX SLT, folks…

That is, the next slot in Sony’s programme of new product releases. Almost exactly five years after the Alpha 100 was launched to the world (also a Wednesday in the second week of June, back in 2006) Sony selected an auspicious date to announce the NEX-C3 and the Alpha A35. But these cameras, rather like . . . → Read More: Wait for the NEX SLT, folks…

NEX shoots the ‘Flight of the Angel’ – HD1080 YouTube

The shape of the NEX-5 and the availability of 180° (fisheye) and 99° (ultrawide) converters for the 16mm pancake lens persuaded us that with a suitable harness or secure housing, we would get permission to make a unique high definition film on the famous Volo dell’Angelo, one of the most dramatic zipwire experiences in Europe.
