Want to know what 12fps sounds like on the new Sony A77 II? Check out the above video.
12fps is smoking fast for a mid-range prosumer camera. The fact that it offers AF tracking during the burst is even more impressive. [Read more...]
Yesterday, I asked you what you want in your next camera. Lots of great responses and interesting ideas. Some of it is feasible for sure in the next generation. Some, not so much.
One thing that I think is coming very soon is 120fps in HD for DSLRs and mirrorless cameras. The question is: Who does it first? [Read more...]
Check about Brad Kremer‘s video above featuring lots of summer fun with the neighborhood kids. As Brad puts it:
So what do you when you have a day off and a $300k camera package sitting at your house? Invite all of the neighborhood kids and throw a water balloon party of course! Duh!
As summer coms to an end and Autumn begins, kids go back to school and dream of warm days filled with laughter and joy. This short film is a reflection of that dream. Shot with a Phantom Flex it captures the magic of the moment. With frame rates of up to 2564 fps at 1080p we see every detail, every smile and every sparkle in the kids eyes. And that is where the magic lies. Within the hopes and dreams of our children.
Check out the above behind-the-scenes video of a recent Dave Hill commercial shoot for the Fiat Abarth. Motion elements for the shoot were captured with the super slo-mo Phantom Flex and Phantom Gold cameras, while the stills were shot with the Canon 5D Mark II and Hasselblad H3D-50.
The DP behind the motion side of the shoot was Brandon Lippard, who also shot one of Doritos Crash the Superbowl winning commercials back it 2010. Remember this one? [Read more...]

I’ve been trying out the Nikon Coolpix P500 for a couple of weeks or so now. Similar to its predecessor, the P100, the Nikon P500 captures VGA-quality video at 120fps and QVGA-quality at 240fps. While both are fun, I find the 120fps at VGA’s 640 x 480 resolution much more practical for sharing on TV sets or online.
Below is a short sample of some clips I shot at both frame rates. Note that the 240fps footage has been up-rezzed in post from its native 320 x 240 resolution to standard VGA 640 x 480 resolution in order to match the 120fps frame size.
