Previously, I reviewed a couple of great field monitors from Aputure. Today, I am going to talk about the Light Storm – a high-CRI LED light from this company. Continue reading Aputure Light Storm – High CRI LED Light
Today I am reviewing the DJI Phantom 3 – a quadcopter with a 4K camera and 3-axis gimbal. The drone and gimbal technologies have been quickly advancing in the last few years (with DJI being one of the leaders), but the previous iterations of these devices have always left something to be desired. Watch my review to find out how good the DJI Phantom has gotten (short answer: really good). Continue reading DJI Phantom 3 – Cinematic Aerial Shots
I am excited about a number of cameras that are about to come out this summer. They are all DSLMs, which means they are small and fairly affordable (especially when compared to professional cameras like the Canon’s C line or the Red cameras), yet they offer very high quality video recording at 4K.

The KineMAX is one of the few cameras on the market that can shoot in 6K resolution. That’s actually nine times the resolution of standard HD. Beat that 4K!
You might be wondering what’s the point of shooting in 6K, when most of the world still watches in HD or is slowly moving to 4K? Continue reading KineMAX 6K Camera Tests and Review
Today, I’m going to talk about another way how to control wirelessly camera focus. This is very useful when you have the camera mounted on a gimbal, steadicam or jib/crane. Aputure has a device called DEC Wireless Focus & Aperture Controller Lens Adapter. By using this lens adapter, you are able to control not only the focus, but also the aperture. Actually, it also allows you to start and stop the camera remotely, which I found very useful. Continue reading Aputure DEC Wireless Lens Adapter with Focus & Aperture Controller
I had a chance to use a new 3-axis camera gimbal on the last feature film project I worked on. I decided to take this gimbal with me for the shoot because it is smaller and lighter than the DJI Ronin and Moza gimbals. Plus, even though it packs into a small case, it supports cameras ranging from DSLMs (ex. Sony A7s, Panasonic GH4) all the way to the RED Epic.
