Wondering what’s the latest in the array of Blackmagic Design pro video components? New products featured at NAB 2023 include an ATEM 4 M/E Constellation 4K switcher, the URSA Mini Pro 12K camera with an OLPF, DaVinci Resolve 18.5 software, the
For me, playing guitar has always been a way to share an afternoon or evening with others, expressly devoid of politics or religion, conversational topics I avoid for political and religious reasons. Music is a common language that is its own form of communication, so in the spring of 2001, I joined an online discussion forum, sponsored by an industry magazine. I was thrilled by the idea of engaging with like-minded musicians who would be only too happy to discuss music, guitars, gear (“What strings should I use?”), songwriting, technique,
Today, anyone can create, and everyone can publish. Panasonic saw this trend and designed something specifically for this new breed of creators: the G100. It is a lightweight, powerful mirrorless Micro Four Thirds camera with a fully articulating touchscreen, advanced OZO Audio by Nokia, 4K video, and plenty of sharing-oriented recording features that will appeal to the vlogger in everyone.
A future career path wasn’t even a blip on the radar when Sara Dietschy first displayed the determination and moxie that would catapult her to Internet stardom in the traditionally male-driven arena of tech. As a 4-year-old in Grapevine, Texas, she just wanted to play sports with the boys.
Dietschy credits her parents, particularly her mother, with the total support that has allowed her to always follow her dreams. “From that early on I was like, ‘You know what mom, the ladies aren't taking this as seriously as I would like to, I think we're
As we grow increasingly dependent on mobile devices in daily life, social media becomes more inextricably linked to mobile culture. Anyone steeped in such things undoubtedly knows that the primary device for tracking data through social media is the symbol commonly known as a pound sign (or octothorpe in the UK), placed directly in front of a keyword (or words). Entering such text on a social network will turn it into a metadata tag—or a unit of data that now goes by the ubiquitous moniker hashtag.
A Brief History of the Hashtag
In my humble opinion, there have been three things keeping OLED TVs from reaching the maximum fandom they deserve in the consumer space—price, a sales pitch, and availability. For starters, OLED TVs are expensive. While it’s easy to argue that premium performance demands a premium price tag, an argument I’ve made more than once, you need the right sales pitch to convince customers to shell out the extra cash. The great thing about selling TVs, especially top-tier ones, is that they don’t require much “selling”—seeing can usually seal the deal
Whether you’re in the studio, shooting landscapes in the country, or photographing an event, chances are you’ve been looking forward to the highly anticipated EOS 5D Mark IV DSLR Camera. The Mark IV offers a slew of upgrades, including a 30.4MP full-frame CMOS sensor and DIGIC 6+ image processor that work in tandem to enable DCI 4K video recording, a native sensitivity range of
At its most basic, a Network Attached Storage device (NAS) is a single or multi-bay system that is able to share files among multiple systems, whether over a wired or wireless network connection. While most NAS devices are used largely for storage and sharing files, their capabilities stretch far beyond. A NAS may also be used as a multimedia server via UPnP and DLNA protocols to share and stream audio, video, and photos to gaming consoles, tablets, phones, and other computers, as well as be configured as FTP, web, email, surveillance, and
It seems like everything you buy these days has a video camera embedded in it somewhere. Computers, phones, gadgets, even game controllers stare back at you through unblinking, peephole-sized lenses. Whether this is a truly positive trend or the onset of Big Brother remains to be seen, but it makes you wonder how relevant dedicated video cameras are in the current landscape. The great HDSLR video revolution that started in 2008 compounded the problem for traditional video cameras: if you can get cinema-quality footage out of an

Even with the dropping prices of DSLRs and the rising appeal of mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, the so called “bridge” camera is as popular as ever. “Bridge cameras” are big-bodied, big-zoom point-and-shoot cameras that have the look and heft of a more expensive and feature-heavy camera but still maintain the simplicity of the standard and compact point-and-shoot cameras.
People will usually purchase “bridge cameras” as they become more serious about photography. They may want to experience shooting with a bridge camera before
Each year, action-camera technology continues to improve and action-camera popularity continues to grow. Most major camcorder manufacturers now have at least one action camera, and there are a handful of other companies that specialize exclusively in action cameras and accessories for those cameras. Companies like GoPro, Drift and Contour have had the most success because they dedicate the bulk of their research to developing exactly the sort of performance the customer wants. Initially, the major manufacturers were a step behind, but in the
Latest Sports Action Cams are Ready to Rumble
Sports-action cameras are hugely popular, as they allow professional and amateur athletes to capture their activities in high-resolution stills and high-definition video. Friends and family can’t deny your fanciful claims when you have stills and video to back them up; the proof is in the pudding, so to speak. Not only can you impress friends and family, but websites like YouTube make it easy to impress the world with your athletic acumen. Any season is a good time to spoil an athlete you know,

In the summer of 2008, Nikon released the D90, a DSLR with an extra feature: HD video recording. It rocked the digital photography and video worlds. Suddenly photographers could shoot dynamite video and videographers could get the look and feel of a cinema camera without the cinema camera price tag. HD video quickly became the feature to look for in a DSLR. A new category of camera was born: the HDSLR.
HDSLRs are truly revolutionary. Their large sensors capture light better than any prosumer camcorder. SLR lenses are sharper and more
