Want to know why the @digitalbolex review is taking so long to cut? It’s epic. Loads of content that i have shot with the camera. There is an actual mini doco within it!! Almost there. Junked previous edit and all the on camera stuff two weeks ago to reshoot it and re edit it! About 3 weeks solid work all added up into this now with shooting. Can’t wait till it’s finished!! Need to start doing 60 second reviews!!!

Fantastic once again! 35mm F1.4 from @sigma_photo These guys are on a roll after the incredible 18-3m F1.8. 50mm next. Both primes are of course full frame unlike the zoom. Love to see a full frame wide, mid range and telephoto zoom next!

Takes up so much space! @thinktankphoto @pelicanproducts (and similar) cases in the office. I need to get a cellar made in the house. Loft room has some space but that’s 2 flights of stairs. Great. I need a Tardis. @thinktankphoto bags are carry ones and the wonderful Logistic manager bags. They are empty. The hard cases have gear in @kesslercrane Cinedrive @freeflysystems Movi. BeSteady One. @djiglobal Phantom 2. Must find space!

Two FS700 Odyssey 7Q 4K 50p raw clips to download!

I have been testing out the new firmware which is due for release any day. From the email they out yesterday it looks like they are waiting on the official sanction to add ProRes (the popular compressed format!) before they release it so it will be just one firmware update this month rather than two. So any day now. If they don’t get the approbal quickly they will release the 4K raw update firmware on it’s own.

Both shots are 4K 50p and are huge. Around 7.5gbs each for the 20 seconds (that’s the size in the compressed zip format, the folder itself is bigger) That’s the downside of 4K uncompressed cinema dng raw! HUGE FILES!!

I will be reviewing the excellent 7Q once I get to try out the ProRes myself. 

Until then enjoy and good luck downloading these! Both are from Miami earlier this month.

Camera rig porn!! Blackmagic 4K with lots of lovely @zacuto stuff http://gopb.co/zacuto Z-Drive, Tornado, cage, V-lock plate, recoil plate…PLUS Alphatron EVF (Zacuto don’t make an SDI EVF, this is very good though), Really Right Stuff F350 head.

Review of the camera coming next month. A look at this Zacuto gear and the new C300/ C500 stuff will be on my site this week as will the Digital Bolex review (finally!!!)

The main killer reason I shoot interviews and things like these pieces to camera in 4K…So many cameras from one shot all with the same eyeline. 

This is the Sony F55 in  4K XAVC at 2000 ISO with the GL Optics 18-35

…and yes I know wet look hair gel went out around 1992…I AM BRINGING IT BACK! :) 

Love target display mode on the iMac so I can use it as a thunderbolt secondary (or primary) external display to my Mac Pro when editing. Also the iMac is still working in background if you want to leave it exporting or something. Shame it’s only on the iMac. Be a great thing to have on the MBP too when travelling with the MacPro
