Smokin’ Hot Atomos Shogun Flame: What You See is What You Get
Let’s get it straight right from the get-go. Right now there are several very good field recorders/monitors out in the field as we speak. I have had the good fortune of using and reviewing others such as Blackmagic Design Video Assist ($895) and Video Design PIX-E7 ($1695) to name two.
Seeing the Big Picture: Field Monitors/Recorders Raise the Production Bar
The rise of professional field monitors and recorders (or some combination thereof) has to be one of the most interesting and welcome product developments for filmmakers in recent memory. Pushed by demand for more features and benefits, manufacturers have answered the call. This new breed of smaller yet powerful monitor/recorders takes production capabilities to a whole new level with 4K and beyond.
In Review: Blackmagic Design Micro Studio Camera 4K
When I got the delivery of the Blackmagic Design Micro Studio Camera 4K, I was instantly very curious. I am thinking to myself, OK, a small 4K camera, not exactly a brand new idea. So how would it stack up? What would the image quality be? There are other cameras in the small 4K space that make really nice images. So what would set the Blackmagic Design 4K Micro apart from the rest? Get ready for an interesting twist on how Blackmagic delivered with really solid, exceptional picture quality.

The reality of editing reality TV – alleviating post production pains with Avid | Edit On Demand
When it comes to cutting reality television, editing teams have their work cut out for them – no pun intended. This is in part due to the “always on” nature of reality TV that involves 24/7 filming, resulting in hours upon hours of content. This was also the case for the editing team behind the Paramount+ lifestyle series All Star Shore, which was tasked with cutting a massive amount of footage – 2,500 hours to be exact. With four ISOs recording 17 hours a day and 13 more on set ENG style, the folks at Eggplant Picture & Sound knew they’d need to ramp up quickly if they were going to meet the production deadline.

Review: CANON XF205
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.
Remote Production and AI: The Future of Post Production
As technology continues to progress at a rapid pace, post-production is set to change dramatically. Besides great new software features, compute (and therefore render) power continues to increase with faster processors and more powerful xPUs (GPUs, TPUs, etc.). This means real-time editing of HD, 4K, 8K, AR and VR is fast becoming a reality, ultimately shortening post-production timeframes.
