I just did a real shoot with this lens
Tuesday, September 14, 2010
Vivitar35-105 3.5 This bargain lens looks impressive. Its got a big front element, solid metal construction, constant iris, and the perfect range for a lot of the work I do. Is it a little slow at 3.5 ? maybe, but thats really only a 1/2 stop from 2.8. I'm generally working with a light level of about F4 @ 200 for sit down interviews so this easily fits into the comfort range for me. Lets go further, this lens has an internal zoom ! Thats right, the length of the lens does not change when...

Reviews at the speed of the net ! So I got the new firmware loaded up. It was simple enough IF you follow the directions to the letter. I missed something the first time around but got it the second time. 1080 out of the camera looks great ! Super sharp. There is some moire and aliasing, but nothing a little diffusion filter wouldn't kill. Maybe even the case lens will just take a little edge off of it. I was running the camera bare. Either way, skin tones look great, camera looks way...
Go get it ! Things added and fixed include : 25fps / Pal frame rate. No 24, but if you aren't doing sync sound, simply interpeting the 25FFPS mov at 24FPS and live with the 4% slow down works for me ! Live Feed Output YES ! finally you can see video while the camera is just on, as well as recording. Feed video to a wireless transmitter, or just plug a LCD monitor in to see what you are really getting. Live Feed with On Screen Display Shows battery, time recorded, recording status. Perfect...

Hot after Premiere Pro's update yesterday, Adobe has released AE 10.0.1 ! The new release adds the following : ____________________________________ There were several fixes and improvements for RED (R3D) import and workflow. The Apply Color LUT effect can now use .3dl files with floating point values or 3DMESH/Mesh keywords, or those saved from an ASSIMILATE SCRATCH system (i.e., that have SCRATCH in the comments at the top of the file). QuickTime (.mov) Files from JVC solid-state cameras...

Panasonic released these pics today of their up and coming camera first shown at NAB. Probably a move to steal a little bit of Canon's big PR this week. Either way its a look that they are on their way to a shipping product. The body is small compared to most video cameras in the pro realm, but its bigger then a dslr, has XLR's, a movable LCD of unknown quality. I'm betting a sharper picture then dslr's, and no aliasing/ moire problems. We'll see when they get here. Now the...

You want it ! This also includes an update for Adobe Media Encoder (AME ). There was also the hint that an AE update was soon to be out as well. Updated & Improved Several improvements to RED (R3D) import and workflow. See the last section of this post for details. QuickTime (.mov) files from JVC solid-state cameras can be imported. Added sequence presets: Canon XF MPEG2 720p30 and Canon XF MPEG2 720p25. Premiere Pro CS5 (5.0.2) can export MXF files containing MPEG-2 essence items that...
Canon Goes All Ultra Resolution On Us ! Canon is has announced the largest CMOS image sensor made at 205X205mm - thats 8X8 inches ! Thats view camera size ! Its Ultra light sensitive due to its size. Price ? you can't afford it, trust me if the 1D comes in at $5k or so as I recall. A 35mm sized sensor is literally a postage stamp on a near full sheet of paper in comparison. Click HereNo Specs on actual pixel count, but I'm sure there much bigger then typical pixels on a chip. Who cares,...
