  • The Freefly Systems MoVI M5 « Wide Open Camera
    5D MKIII GH4 70D etc you will have plenty of leeway with the M5 which is what this rig is really built for The M5 retains a lot of the M10 features A GPS quality carbon fiber construction same great warranty same level of customer support the ability to pair with a RC transmitter the same balance docking stand same charger Even the software which has been updated offers the same functions as the M10 You can adjust the window degrees and smoothness of each axis tuned majestic tilt and pan check the voltage temperature you name it its all in there This is for Mac PC or Android currently Another difference between the M10 and the M5 is that the M5 has a tighter camera stage footprint Keep this in mind if you have cables etc sticking out of your camera as it can be a problem The M10 stage is much wider and give you plenty of room for AKS like wireless FF motors converters etc You will have plenty of stage room with a DSLR however The roll bar does not have side to side adjustment on the M5 so side to side balance on the rig must be well though out when it comes to accessorizing your setup Keep this in mind if using a camera that may be heavier on one side than the other You may need to place a focus motor on the other side to keep it balanced The camera stage also has a new wider camera plate which will still accept the 15mm LWS option The cables on the M5 are handled slightly different as well On my M10 it was possible to accidentally disconnect or affect a motor drive cable The M5 has the connectors nicely protected which prevents this issue The handlebars on the MoVI M5 are fantastic and I hope this feature is offered in the future on the M10 The M5 has two quick latches that allow you to rotate the handlebars for inversion mode or adjust left to right placement If you remove one hand grip you can quickly remove the handle bar for quick and easy packing of the rig I can see this rig being put into backpacks etc to be used on documentaries all over the world so quick set up and break down is great feature The MoVI M5 batteries are about half the size of the M10 yet they are still 14 8v 4S batteries They seem to give at least a good 2 hours of use even when the rig is maxed out and doing a fair amount of inversion mode This is great as you can carry two to four and get by on almost any shoot The batteries charge fairly quickly as well You can buy the MoVI with or without an RC transmitter The transmitter version is approx 300 more and worth every penny You can also use the MoVI M10 and M5 as a remote head

  • Chinon Announces The Bellami HD-1 Digital Super 8 Camera. « Wide Open Camera
    scarce on this This has the most info I ve seen yet http rlfc cocolog nifty com rlfc 2014 02 chinon 31f1 html About US 830 80 000 Yen which puts it too close to a BMPCC in price I think for this to be a competitive choice unless Chinon manages something unexpected Am hoping it at least has a CCD global sensor like the D16 which is its main competition But I would take a guess it is more like to have a typical compact point and shoot camera sensor in it instead Perhaps we should instead be expecting something more along the lines of the C mount modded GoPro in terms of what this Bellami HD 1 will be like Other info Will go on sale in just a few weeks mid March Says D C CS and M42 mount is supported with adapters The websites on this website illustrates just how tiny this will be in the hands of a user http www superheadz com bellami http www superheadz com bellami bellami php Additionally take a look at the top with the T W buttons Looks like zoom lenses will have this as a control this kinda cancels out the thought this is going to be targeted at retro users with vintage lens Instead more likely for the CCTV lenses that have this functionality However it could also be a digital zoom function This is a cheap stuff manufacturer after all Jared Abrams Visit My Website View My Other Posts Jared Abrams is a cinematographer based in Hollywood California After many years as a professional camera assistant he switched over to still photography About two years ago a new Canon camera changed the way the world sees both motion and still photography He just happened to be

  • The Zylight F8 LED Fresnel « Wide Open Camera
    replicating what would be appear as much as possible to be natural daylight The F8 does this perfectly as its spotting and flooding range is exactly what I need to get the shot without the need for multiple models of lighting The F8 has enough punch to go though several layers of diffusion and scrims and still cast a nice controllable spread of constant light Another fantastic feature of the light is that its portable Not only in that it can be battery operated but Zylight put Arri rosettes onto each side so you can literally attach handles to it This is handy for example if I am operating a steadicam or MoVi and I need a grip to walk next to me filling operator shadow or to give some light tracking to the subject Its a smart design and I haven t seen anyone else think of this ingenious idea The rosettes also allow for more rigging options and as we all know the more options for placement or attachment the better The Zylight F8 is weather resistant which is not something I can saw for most lights out in the market Although not waterproof I literally buried an operating F8 in the snow with just the glass of the fresnel exposed to get a shot I needed from the ground I had it in the wet snow for approximately 45 minutes without any issues After the shoot I wiped it down and put it in the case and used it for an indoor shoot the next day Everything was solid The bellows of the light are rubber and sealed on each end The light does not put off much heat so I was able to put it in a bag immediately after a long day of shooting The light is also durable The one thing I always hated about my HMI s is when someone dropped one my my Joker 400 s and the bulb broke Not once but twice The Joker 400 is a great light but at 250 a bulb it adds up The F8 does not burn out or need a bulb change This is piece of mind for me as I have enough crap to deal with on a shoot the last thing I need is a light to go down and to be without a spare lamp I don t have that worry anymore I also would have to wait for the lights to cool down before breaking down which in some cases added a lot more time to the shoot schedule The F8 features passive cooling so no fans are required to keep it cool therefore it is mechanically and electronically silent With LED lights we can move on to the next shot immediately They can go into a bag and into a trunk right away Also not having a potential burn hazard is important Not just for people but equipment cases etc The power usage on the light is great if

  • Blackmagic Drops Zip File Footge From New 4K BMCC. Shipping Soon! « Wide Open Camera
    of a general production camera This camera is not a low light camera however I have included some clips at night so you can see that I spent a few weeks wandering around with the camera taking some different types of shots One shot of the jetty has some clipping in the sky to see the affect of clipping All the shots are ProRes as I did not shoot RAW I did notice that later when the guys did some more tests on the camera and lens that it was not shimmed correctly so I think the results could be better than this Some of the shots have different shutter angles and I used standard still camera lenses The download is at http video blackmagicdesign com Camer Shots zip Its a big file at just under 10 GB so it will take a little while to download but these 4K files are big Also I know you might want to color grade these shots so I allowed some clips to be longer at up to 10 seconds for some of them I think when working in higher resolution being able to see the movement in the distance in these shots is quite interesting I will be excited to see if anyone color grades these shots up nice because I am a terrible colorist We expect to see some of the DOP s beta testing the camera to post some professional test shots with comments on how the camera performs in a few days I hope that gives everyone a better feel for the camera A lot of people think this camera is a similar camera to our other cinema cameras but it s quite different and so I think these posts will be important so people know what it s
