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

One of several innovations brought about by the Panasonic Varicam line lives inside the sensor. The fact that this sensor can operate at not one, but two native ISO values (800 and 5000), means reduced noise and images with higher dynamic range in low-light scenarios, without sacrificing standard performance in more typical situations. In this video, cinematographer Charles Papert explains how this feature can be leveraged for achieving natural-looking images in both low-light and bright situations.

Atomos has introduced its latest monitor/recorder contender at NAB 2017, the 4Kp/60 HDR 19″ Sumo. Capable of capturing 4K 12-bit RAW and 10-bit ProRes/DNxHR, the Sumo also offers real-time HDR color grading, and live 1080p/60 switching with up to four-ISO recording. Minimizing the distinction between field and studio monitors, Atomos is positioning the Sumo for on-set HDR use as a DIT, client, or director’s monitor, in post as a color-grading tool, or for live-switching in the studio. 

Used on set, the Sumo provides real-time Log to HDR mapping and both PQ and HLG playback. Record 12-bit RAW at up to 4Kp/30 (CDNG) or 10-bit ProRes/DNxHR up to 4Kp/60 and 2Kp/240. Choose among the various resolutions to produce masters, dailies, and proxies. The Sumo features a bright 1200-nit, 10-bit screen for easy outdoor viewing. Widely available 2.5″ SSD/HDD media is used for recording, and interfaces include HDMI 2.0 in and out ports and quad SDI inputs. No need to hover next to the camera controls for playback—the Sumo enables you to play back footage via its touchscreen interface.

For grading in HDR color, the Sumo applies Log, PQ, or HLG parameters to produce 10-bit color images with 10 stops of dynamic range. Use the Sumo with your NLE or grading software, or to output an HDR image to a larger HDR/Rec 709 display. Switch among four HD ISO feeds to record or stream multi-cam content. Metadata tagging enables you to preserve clean ISO recordings for future edits.

NAB 2017: Caldigit TS3 Thunderbolt™ 3 Docking Stations

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

As light and portable devices are slowly becoming the norm, more notebooks are being built with limited or no additional connectivity options such as USB ports, display ports, and Ethernet jacks. If this situation sounds familiar to you, then you’ll most likely need a docking station. But what kind? Take the 2016 MacBook Pro, for example. Equipped with two Thunderbolt 3 ports, which are packed with potential, the MacBook Pro has no other ports. To learn more about Thunderbolt 3 and what it can do for you, please click here. Now combine it with a Caldigit TS3 Thunderbolt™ 3 Docking Station, and you’ll have most of your commonly used ports back and then some, such as USB Type-A, DisplayPort, Gigabit Ethernet, eSATA, and audio in/out jacks. Moreover, it supports up to 85W of charging so you can recharge your notebook and utilize all the extra connectivity options at the same time. Alternatively, users who are looking for a more portable solution should consider the TS3 Lite that has everything its big brother has, aside from laptop charging, eSATA ports, and one less USB Type-A port, which is replaced by a USB Type-C port.

Trade in Your Old Camera for a New DxO ONE

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

On April 30, 2017, the first 100 B&H customers who bring their old camera to the B&H Photo SuperStore, at 420 Ninth Ave, New York, NY, will have the opportunity to trade in their camera for a free DxO ONE camera—what DxO is calling “The #NOWcamera.”

The DxO ONE is a supremely portable, pocket-sized 20.2MP digital camera that plugs directly into an iPhone’s Lightning port, allowing users to shoot higher-quality images than the phone will capture on its own.

The swap starts at 9:00 A.M., and only the first 100 customers with an old camera will be able to trade for the DxO ONE. DxO will be donating the traded-in cameras to schools or charities.

For our hands-on review of the DxO ONE camera, click here and, for an in-depth discussion about the camera from the B&H Event Space, click here.

See you on April 30th!
