Atomos GH4In the past few weeks, the internet has practically exploded from people sharing their opinions, and footage, from the recently released Panasonic GH4. Most of what people are sharing at this point has to do with the camera’s internal 8-bit 4K recording, which is fantastically detailed, and which is undoubtedly one of the biggest selling points for the camera. However, another feature that Panasonic crammed into the GH4, and a feature that might be revolutionary for a stills/video camera at this price point, is the camera’s ability to output a clean 4K 4:2:2 10-bit signal from its mini-HDMI port. At this point, there aren’t any recorders that can record the 4K signal (until Atomos releases the Shogun this fall), but if you want a glorious down-sampled 10-bit HD image from your new GH4 (and why wouldn’t you), you can do it with the Atomos Ninja Blade. Here’s Jeremy Young from Atomos to show you how. More »

sony a7r mirrorless full frame still photography video camera 1080p hd high definition recordingStill photography may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Sony, but that hasn’t stopped the manufacturer from developing an array of DSLR and mirrorless camera systems.

Sony would like to introduce you to two new full frame mirrorless photography cameras (with 1080p video, of course:) the 24 megapixel A7, and its big sister, the 36 megapixel A7R. These cameras natively accept NEX E-mount glass, as well as Sony alpha mount glass with some adapting. They also shoot up to 1080p60 on-board video in either AVCHD or MP4, or feed you clean uncompressed video out via HDMI. Read on for more details. More »

Sony PMW300 LargeSony’s PMW-EX1 and its bigger, more shoulder-friendly brother the EX3 came as pretty powerful and versatile tapeless solutions to prosumer shooting. Though they filled out a more modest lower-end to Sony’s XDCAM and CineAlta lines, they still saw action in some pretty impressive places, perhaps best known (’round these parts at least) for the DIY indie monster movie Monsters as well as District 9, albeit for a purposely ‘more video-y’ look in the latter. Now, Sony is attempting to pump some fresh blood into this 1/2″ three-chip prosumer family with the newly-announced interchangeable-lens PMW-300. More »

The just-announced Canon Cinema EOS C300 has a 4K* sensor. But yes, there’s an asterisk there, and it turns out the Super35 CMOS sensor’s native resolution of 3840×2160 (which is exactly double that of 1080P’s 1920×1080 resolution) isn’t a “traditional” 4K, and the camera outputs at 1080P. It reportedly has 1920 x 1080 pixels for red and blue, and 1920 x 2160 pixels for green. Here’s the deal from DV Info: More »
