Cinema Lens Care and Maintenance

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

If you’ve taken the plunge and invested in one, two, or a full set of cine-style lenses, you’ll now want to take the best care possible of your lenses. Not only will the lenses function better if they’re properly maintained, but you’ll be protecting your (probably substantial) financial investment. Most cine-style lens care and maintenance is the same as for still or ENG-type lenses, so if you’ve made the switch from these other lens types, you’ll know the drill.

Carrying Cases

When transporting your cine lenses between locations, although soft-sided cases are available, chances are you’ll want to opt for a hard case, for maximum protection. Pro Video Lens Cases are available with options such as waterproofing, custom-cut foam and/or rigid overlays for specific lens brands, wheels, and retractable handles. Angenieux, Arriflex, Canon, Cooke, Fuji, Rokinon, Schneider, and Zeiss are just some of the brands for which customized cases are available. For run-and-gun situations, Lens Wraps may be used to cushion your cine-style lenses while placed in a bag or case.

Samsung Announces the Galaxy S8 and S8+ Smartphones

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

Samsung has unveiled its new flagship devices, giving the world its first peek at the Galaxy S8 and S8+. The handsets’ most striking feature is the Infinity Display, which eschews side bezels to allow the 5.8″ screen (6.2″ on the S8+) to curve gracefully around the edges of the phone for a more immersive experience. The 2960 x 1440 AMOLED screen has also been lengthened toward the top and bottom, with the home, back, and overview buttons now onscreen and the fingerprint reader moved to the rear panel.

Also on the back of the device is a 12MP camera with a large 1/2.5″ sensor and f/1.7 lens, capable of recording 4K video at 60 fps and taking 9MP photographs, simultaneously. The front-facing 8MP camera has an f/1.7 lens, as well, for video-chatting and taking self-portraits.

Inside, the phones are powered by the Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor, backed up by 4GB of RAM and an Adreno 540 GPU. IP68 water- and dustproofing helps keep those sensitive components safe from accidents and the elements, even in 4.9′ of water, for up to 30 minutes.

On the software side, the S8 and S8+ run a Samsung-modified Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, with the contextually aware, button-activated Bixby personal assistant helping you throughout your day. You can boost your productivity with Samsung DeX, which lets you connect a keyboard, mouse, and monitor to the DeX Station dock (sold separately) and use your phone like a PC. The DeX Station, as well as the Galaxy S8 and S8+ smartphones, will be available for pre-order soon.

What is a VPN and Why Do I Want It to Be My Digital Best Friend?

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

digital cameras best photo sharing

Back in high school, I was sitting in the computer lab and looked over to see a classmate on a Santa-themed shopping website. I asked him what, exactly, he was doing there, and he waved me over. In a random fill-in box about halfway down the page, he put in a URL that was blocked by the school’s filtering system. Suddenly, the shopping site disappeared, replaced by the blocked page.

Thus, I was introduced to the world of proxies.

Proxies are services that allow you to bypass filtering systems via misdirection. Rather than going directly to www.beardsandhats.com, which could be blocked by some sort of facial-hair-and-head-cover-hating organization, an employee who wants to browse the many, many options available to them at the B&H website would have to go to a different site, one that loads the site you’re looking for within itself, keeping the filter from activating. Sometimes they’re clear about what they are; other times they pretend to be Santa-themed shopping websites.

But let’s be clear: Proxies are not safe. If you just want to look at a few websites, then you’re probably fine, but if you intend to put any personal information or passwords or anything else, do not use a proxy. Since proxies are usually free, they make money by either replacing the page’s original ads with their own or doing more nefarious things, like breaking encryption and snooping on your browsing habits.

(There is a downside to “free.”)

So… what should I use?

A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, is more than just a proxy, and it has uses beyond just bypassing your high school’s ridiculous ban on cat videos. At its core, a VPN is basically a super-secret network that sits on top of a public network, one that connects people securely all around the world and keep others out.

This has numerous uses, including many enterprise solutions, but we’re focused now on its benefits to you, a person who is tired of sitting at Starbucks and worrying about whether the Mr.-Robot-looking fellow in the corner has compromised the network and is watching your every digital move.

The 500 Series: Guide to Compressors

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

digital cameras best photo sharing

Like other offerings available in the 500 Series format, there is a wealth of compressors to select in this increasingly popular form factor. Ranging from unique and original designs to emulations and clones of some of the most classic compressors heard on countless albums and songs, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the choice. This piece will highlight some standouts.

Chandler’s Little Devil has become a go to for many engineers since its release, and with good reason. Though it takes inspiration from some of Chandler’s rack-mountable compressor offerings, the Little Devil is not a direct clone of any one compressor, and gives you a fresh flavor for your 500 rack. Thanks to its Curve Switch, which alters the compressor’s knee, giving you an aggressive germanium flavor in the GERM position and a comparatively transparent approach with the ZENER switch (taken from the Zener Limiter). What you get is a compressor that shines on a variety of source material, from acoustic guitars to drums. Many engineers have a pair in their rack, using them on drum room mics.

In the Field: Nikon D5600 and the Year of the Rooster

Author: admin  |  Category: Best Photo Sharing, Digital Cameras

digital cameras best photo sharing

Another year, another mid-range Nikon DSLR. Succeeding 2015’s D5500, 2017 has brought the newest iteration of the D5xxx series, with the D5600. This camera, and the series in general, is Nikon’s bread and butter, and represents a healthy mid-point in its DSLR lineup. It is not a top-of-the-line speed shooter, nor does it produce massive files, but it isn’t the most bare-bones model, either. What it is, though, is an impressively well-rounded camera that gathers technology from all other Nikon DSLRs and distills it into a simple, straightforward, and easy-to-use camera for practically anybody.

Compared to the D5500, not too much has really changed—and that’s okay by me. Sure, many people would like a more thorough feature revamp but, to be honest, the D5600, like the D5500, still represents one of the best DSLR values out there and is just a solid camera meant for everyday shooting. The D5600’s main update is the refinement of SnapBridge, and the introduction of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) into this new model. Differing from the Wi-Fi-only attribute of its predecessor, Wi-Fi + NFC + Bluetooth offers a more comprehensive means for sending images from your camera directly to your phone for online sharing. It just requires a one-time setup and allows for automatic low-resolution image transfers between devices, and that’s really the name of the game here: the D5600 strives to be faster and more intuitive for quickly getting your shots onto your phone and up onto Instagram or Facebook as seamlessly as possible. SnapBridge also lets you control the D5600 remotely from your smartphone or tablet—which is perfect for taking group portraits or photos of yourself from longer-than-an-arm’s-length away.
