Well I have set myself quite a challenge here as this is a tough one to describe and explain. Not so much perhaps because it’s difficult, but just because it’s hard to visualise, as you will see. 阅读详细 »
In this guide I hope to help you get the very best from the Cine EI mode on Sony’s PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 cameras. The cameras have two very distinct shooting mode, Cine EI and Custom Mode. In custom mode the camera behaves much like any other traditional video camera where what you see in the viewfinder is what’s recorded on the cards. In custom mode you can change many of the cameras settings such as gamma, matrix, sharpness to create the look you are after in-camera. “Baking-in” the look of your image in camera is great for content that will go direct to air or for fast turn around productions. But a baked-in look can be difficult to alter in post production. In addition it is very hard to squeeze every last drop of picture information in to the recordings in this mode. 阅读详细 »

Leica Camera. Wetzlar, Gemany. We’re back at Leica’s new headquarters, investigating a mystery. Last month several jaws dropped at the sight of a 1911 hand-cranked 35mm cine camera, built by Oskar Barnack, on display in the lobby.
Apple just released Final Cut Pro 10.1.2, which has a host of new features including improved media management tools, Rec709 LUT support for Log footage (Arri, Sony, Canon, and Blackmagic cameras), 3DLUT support for the Arri AMIRA, and support for their new ProRes 4444 XQ codec. The new codec is 12 bit RGB, just like ProRes 4444, but at a lower compression ratio of 1:4.5 versus 1:6.8 found in ProRes 4444. That means bigger data, but better data too. ProRes 4444 HD at 29.97 fps is about 330 Mbit/s, while ProRes 4444 XQ HD at 29.97 fps is 495 Mbit/s. This can add up, as you may imagine, but it’s a great option when you want the highest quality image. 阅读详细 »
为什么我们的摄影机无法正确记录我们所看到的东西？这是一个看似简单的问题，但回答起来却是最复杂的，不仅需要深入研究摄影机记录光线的原理，还要了解我们的眼睛是如何工作的，以及为什么。处理这些问题将极好地解释我们每天所感知的世界，当然还能成为更棒的摄影师。 阅读详细 »
