Fuji previously showed off the new GFX 50S medium format camera and new lenses back at Photokina 2016. Pricing was the big question on everyone’s mind and Fuji is hitting a pretty good price point at $6500, which comes in below the relatively affordable Pentax 645Z (now at $7000) and well below the new Hasselblad X1D-50c (at $9k).
Last summer, I speculated about the coming medium format revolution and what role Fuji would play in it. I think the $6500 price tag for a 51MP medium format camera signals that Fuji means business and wants a big piece of the medium format market share. [Read more…]
I probably should’ve written this post a couple months ago. Many of you have noticed that the posting frequency has decreased over the past few months and have commented or sent me direct emails. I’ve also had a few concerns (thanks) about my well being.
I’m still alive and kicking. All is well. [Read more…]
The Nikon D5600 is making its way to the US after it was previously launched in Europe and Asia back in 2016.
The D5600 adds Nikon’s SnapBridge tech, which uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) to create an “always on” connection with a compatible smart device to facilitate quick and easy sharing of images. For the rest of the camera, it mostly maintains the specs found in the D5500 predecessor. [Read more…]
While the GH5 is getting some legit updates and improvements for still image capture, the real sexiness is in the video upgrades. I almost don’t even know where to start… [Read more…]
In this video from Peter McKinnon, we get a look at a pretty basic workflow of creating a cinematic look in Adobe Premiere Pro. Across the series of color grading tutorials in this video, he pretty much lives in the Basic Correction panel of Premiere Pro instead of getting into the three-way color wheels, which we commonly see used for emphasizing color in highlights and shadows.
While not the most complex grading method, I think it’s a great starting point for dipping your toes into color grading and getting good results. Of course, it all starts with good footage, which you need to get in-camera first.

Ink cartridges are a racket and we all know it. It’s the not-so-hidden cost of buying an ink jet printer. The makers of these “affordable” machines love to discount the hardware price to hook you on a recurring cycle of buying the outrageously expensive ink cartridges.
When Epson announced a new ink tank system back in 2015, we saw a glimpse of what was to come (for the better, perhaps). And now, Canon has joined the party in typical Canon fashion with not one, but four new ink jet printers that use a new ink tank system instead of the tiny cartridges. [Read more…]
