Remember, just last year this company dived headfirst into making their FIRST camera ever: an affordable cinema camera that could shoot RAW and have high dynamic range images.

In partnership with the new team at cinema5D, we present their latest side by side comparison of the Sony F55 & Canon EOS 1D C at 4k. There’s an obvious difference in sharpness (in fact, the team thought it might need some softening in post it was so sharp), but is that worth triple the [...]

So, can my iMac handle editing 4k video from the Canon EOS 1D C? Yes! I’m using FCPX to do my editing and it now handles not only the motion JPEG from the Canon EOS 1D C, but it will handle RED and Scarlet footage as well. Since I’ve got this Canon EOS 1D C [...]

Does shooting 4k video kill the photography business or is it just another tool? Here, we have a guest post from Abraham Joffe showing how he shot stills with the Canon EOS 1D C – but by only shooting video and extracting the stills from the 4k video itself.

GoPro Hero 3 The biggest small news in cameras in perhaps years. GoPro have announced their new camera the Hero 3, successor to the much loved Hero 2, Hero HD and original Hero.
