It is not unusual over the course of the year to get quite a few different professional camera packages to try out. They range from super high end to entry pro level. But that’s ok by me because I am always looking for the right camera for the program, not overkill. That said the JVC GY-HM200SP 4K CAM was really quite a pleasant surprise. But I’m not really sure why I was surprised. I think I might know. Normally, we only get to hang on to a camera for a few weeks at most. This time however we had a chance to stretch that review period out over a longer time which was some of the local high school football season and couldn’t have been happier with the results. Yes, and the team won some of their games too! But before I get to deep into the games lets get a snapshot of the physical make up of JVC GY-HM200SP.
by Bradford HillI always find it interesting to see how different cameras and their layouts will function under the many shooting conditions I am faced with on an every day basis. (So when Canon asked me if I wanted to shoot the XF205, I was fairly excited to give it a go.) Being that I am a full time Cinema EOS user, when I am given an opportunity to shoot with a “Documentary Style Camcorder”, it always tends to brings back memories of shooting on MiniDV with GL1’s & XL1’s. Things certainly have changed from those days and it is great to see how far these cameras have come. The Canon XF205 is a creative powerhouse packed with some of the most up-to-date technology in camera function & abilities. I must say, I was blown away by the extensive menu layout and finely tunable controls that don’t often get paired together.
When the production team spends countless hours perfecting a film, and every actor and technical person gave it their all, it’s devastating to experience a technical problem with the footage. Unfortunately, technical problems do occur and can potentially wipe out a lot of great work. However, there are several best practices production groups can deploy to manage the camera’s storage capabilities in order to safely protect footage.
Portability meets performance with this itty bitty camera. Videographer, Bradford Hill took the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera for a test run, here are his thoughts on the camera's usability.
These are the things that can keep you from getting hired. Don’t make these 6 crucial mistakes with your reel:
Over the last couple of years, I have been very fortunate to test and evaluate many different types of cameras. From full-size 8K to specialized miniature POV units putting different cameras to the test is always interesting and a lot of fun. In this review, we are going to be taking a look at the Panasonic AG-CX10. The AG-CX10 is said to be the little brother of the Panasonic AG-CX 350. In either case, both are excellent choices for people that need a good amount of features that allow for a quick start-up, getting the shots you need, then scramming out of harm's way. But before I get too deep there are a couple of the things I try to keep in mind when reviewing gear. Who is this camera for? What might they use it for? Will it be a good fit and a good return on investment?

Recently I was asked to circle back around and take another look at the LiveU Solo. Based on my last experience with the LiveU Solo, I was more than happy to revisit, and was not disappointed at all. Getting back together with the LiveU Solo was like a visit from a good friend—solid, reliable, and there when you need them. LiveU Solos are being used everywhere, including college athletic departments, traditional broadcasters, and production units that need to put out a high quality live image without taking out a second mortgage.

As we start winding towards the dog days of summer, I was recently given the opportunity to get in front of the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K and the DaVinci Resolve Control Panel. This was a new and different approach to looking at products that come through the doors at ProductionHUB. Normally we might get a camera or lighting kit but to get two production/post production related products together was cool. As a production professional (like many of you) I am always looking at the budget and ways to control costs. So the idea of being able to upgrade in the field and enhance the post-production suite without crushing the budget was enticing to say the least. But before I get there, lets take a look at where production always has to start. It starts with the camera of course.
