I’m working on a full review for the Sony RX100 IV but I’ll share a couple of video samples shot with the camera using the SLOG2 profile in 4K and a variety of slow motion frame rates. Above, you see a run-through of ungraded and graded clips (starting with the SLOG2 LUT) for a variety of low-light scenes. [Read more…]
The new Sony RX100 IV is a pretty amazing little camera. I haven’t gotten my hands on one yet but I’m really looking forward to it. A couple of the coolest features in my book are the 4K video capture and the HD slow motion at up to 1000 fps.
Check out this video captured handheld at 1000fps. [Read more…]
This video from the Slow Mo Guys shows us a great look at the shutter movement inside the Canon 7D at a range of shutter speeds, all the way up to 1/8000s.
It is a view we don’t ever really get to see even if we do understand the process of how a focal plane shutter works. Thanks to a Phantom camera that shoots HD video at 10,000fps, we get to see up close and in detail the mirror and shutter operation.
As you are watching, note the vibration of mirror on its impact and consider how that will affect image quality as much slower shutter speeds.
I just got the Panasonic GH4 in for review and, while I haven’t had any time to properly shoot with it, I took the opportunity to shoot a little bit of slow motion footage at 1080/24p and 96fps, as well as a few frames in 4K, while I was prepping my grill last night. Both are shown in the videos below. [Read more…]
Alongside the new Tough TG-3, Olympus announced the new Stylus SH-1, which features a 16MP backlit CMOS sensor and a 24x optical zoom (25-600mm equivalent). The camera also captures 1080/60p HD video and is the first compact camera to employ Olympus’ 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization. [Read more…]
