Auto-Tilt & Pan Intervalometer for Affordable Time-Lapse and Motion-Controlled Video Production: Astro

From Kickstarter another great gizmo for video-makers and photographers: "Astro adds pan & tilt movement to your camera, and it allows you to set up time lapse programs by defining the duration, the range of movement; which goes from 0 to 360°, and the interval in degrees or seconds in which you want the photos to be taken."


"The most intuitive, compact and simple intervalometer + motion control for timelapse photography"

HDSLR Top Video Cameras Compared: Nikon D800 vs Canon 5D MKIII

Robin Good: Thanks to fellow video curator Philippe Gassmann I have run into this excellent blog review by DSLR News Shooter that compares the Nikon D800 and the existing king of the market, the Canon 5D MKIII.


"Before the advent of the Nikon D800 and D4 there was no choice if you wanted a full frame DSLR shooting 1080P video – it had to be a Canon.


This past week, I and several other members of the photo and video press and bloggers have been guests of Nikon Europe in New York on the “48 hour challenge”: getting our hands on production models of the D800 and being allowed to shoot what we wanted."


N.B.: The video pictured above is a side-by-side rolling shutter test of the Nikon D800 and Canon 5D mkIII at the Gleasons gym in New York. Do not use this clip to assess anything more than rolling shutter performance as the white balance and exposure are not optimally set for either camera.

Cinema-Quality Video Shooting Now Accessible To All: The 2.5K Blackmagic Cinema Camera

Cinema-Quality Video Shooting Now Accessible To All: The 2.5K Blackmagic Cinema Camera | Online Video Publishing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera, is a 2.5K/1080HD camcorder that records uncompressed RAW, ProRes and DNxHD and features a built-in SSD-based video recorder that costs $2,995.


Key features include:
-> Super wide 13 stops of dynamic range
-> Opitcal sensor is a Micro 4/3" (refrigerated for low noise)
-> On-board solid state recorder
-> Built-in Thunderbolt connectivity
-> 3 Gb/s SDI output
-> a copy of UltraScope for waveform monitoring
-> a full copy of DaVinci Resolve (a $995 value right there).


"You also get a nifty touchscreen display, newsworthy in its own right, that combines the form factor of an external recorder with the ease of an iPhone or iPad.

...

Blackmagic has worked very closely with Apple for some time, evident in Blackmagic's streamlined designs and user interfaces, as well as the company's embrace of ProRes and Thunderbolt.


"This camera, like the other devices announced during the show, will connect directly to FCPX. Metadata will be king."


...The only early test footage out there is on Vimeo and comes from Australian cinematographer John Brawley, who continues to shoot internal engineering tests for Blackmagic.

Video clips here: http://vimeopro.com/johnbrawleytests/blackmagic-cinema-camera/video/40381671 
...

Depending on the setup or your perspective, it can look like a DSLR-type camera, a studio camera—like the configuration shown above (there's also an optional sunvisor)—or a handheld camera that is balanced by another cleverly designed Blackmagic handle rig (top)...


Blackmagic is positioning its new camera directly at high-end television commercials, episodic television and feature films."

It Shoots In The Dark. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III: The Full Review

It Shoots In The Dark. The Canon EOS 5D Mark III: The Full Review | Online Video Publishing | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Here is a full in-depth field review of the brand new Canon 5D MKIII, one of the best HDSLR cameras you can buy today. 


From the review by Zach Honig: "Like its predecessor, the 5D Mark III is an incredibly capable video shooter -- in fact, some of the camera's future owners may not use it to capture stills at all.


...there's no option to capture stills while you're recording video, though if you're shooting in 1080p -- there's support for 1080 at 24/25/30p or 720 at 50/60p -- you'll probably have plenty of frame grabs to use.


...At $3,499 for the body only, Canon priced this latest 5D higher than its predecessor, which rang in at $2,699 at launch..."
