Before I left Vegas I knocked off a few Sony AX100 car mounted shots. No idea what image is like yet. Loaned from @sonyeurope a really shame I couldn’t get a GH4 from @panasonic tried & tried. Thankfully managed to borrow one for a few hours from a contact at a distributor. Not enough time for a review am afraid though.

Introducing the just announced @djiglobal 3 axis gimbal Phantom Vision 2 +! I have been playing with it for couple of weeks. Not perfect but very very cool and a neat solution. Camera same as vision 2 so not gopro 3 standard but the app is great and FPV/ telemetry is outstanding. Full video review of it and my own Vision 2 with 2 axis zenmuse/ gopro hero 3+ with footage from both AND original non gimbal phantom vision 2 very soon! Editing it now! :)

I am in a commercial and it’s bloody long too!! It’s finally live! The commercial I made and fronted for LG for their bloody epic 84” 4K TV.

Very strange seeing myself fronting something like this…normal I just film myself!! It was a massive crew too, like a feature…shot back in January over 3 days.

I shot with my Sony F55 and the rest was shot on the Sony F65…a beast! That’s my lovely Leica M 240 you see me with in it. 

Yes, this is a paid endorsement of course. It had to be bloody good for me to agree to it. It is…I would love one of these myself. 

You need a massive 4K screen to really see the benefits, 84” will do it. I do have a 4K at home but it’s a teeny tiny 65” :) I don’t think I have a wall that I could stick it on! 

There is of course still very little to watch on it though apart from my own work (seen it!) and Tom Lowe’s Timescapes…that’s it! Still the up-scaling is bloody good on both my one and the one in the commercial. Scarily good actually. Going back to HD after it doesn’t look as good generally. 

I had to do a bit of work with the script to make it true to me. Especially when talking about features I am not keen on…mainly “smoothing”, something I have been outspoken about in my dislike of it a lot :) So it was tricky as they wanted me to talk about it and it’s not my thing…hence if I say something like “it has or there is…” It’s something I am not that keen on. If I say something is good, great, superb then you know I truly love it. So my line was “if you like smoothing this TV does it very well”…

The 3D actually is damn good.  I am not a 3D fan, I always see the 2D version of a film unless it’s something special like Gravity. At home I have liked it, this beast is easily the best 3D home experience I have had and is better than almost all my theatrical experiences. Helps that the glasses are actually really light and comfortable with big lenses. 

Anyway…enjoy my commercial!

Watched my new film in my  “Postcard” series from Miami on my Samsung 65” UHD. http://vimeo.com/89759162 Wish I had more to watch on it then my own work and Tom Lowe’s Timescapes! Still the upscaling is very impressive. Grading on my piece took a few attempts but happy with the end result, very pastelly with slightly milky blacks. Felt appropriate….

Uploading 4K piece shot on the @convergentD odyssey 7Q in their just released 4K raw for the FS700. This was about in Miami on Beta firmare I tried last month. The shot here is actually 200 fps 2k raw upscaled. Looks surprisingly good. Will be a blog post to accompany it.
