Let’s face it, our audiences are wanting more than ever. Higher production values in all productions have never been more important. I think we all get that, right? What about the technical specifications of those challenges? Will the gear you choose be able to deliver not only that engaging content, but do it seamlessly and not fall down on the job?
Today’s creative content creators and streamers have so many challenges to not only create compelling content, but to do it in less time, with tighter budgets and more agile production staff. They also may have the new additional challenges of live streaming which can present another whole set of technical parameters that need to be addressed in order to get that fabulous content to the house.
The moment many of us had hoped for is finally here. With the restart of productions, new cameras and important upgrades seem to be popping up all over the place. Yes, the production landscape continues to be changing and I don’t think we are done yet. In part one, we will explore four cameras that have captured quite a bit of interest over the last couple of months. Part two will cover some of the incredible gear that is emerging in 2021 . Check it out!
I normally don’t start off a product review with the word “fun”, but I have to tell you man was this camera fun. Don’t get me wrong, the Marshall CV506 has some serious features that would rival some cameras costing twice as much.
No too long ago I had the opportunity to take delivery on a JVC GY-HM250U Camcorder. Having looked at the GY-HM250U before, I knew the camera had an affordable price point and had performed well in a variety different productions.
So as it has been said, necessity is the mother of invention. As distancing for a variety of production situations persists, the DPA CORE Interview Kit is a solid addition to any production package that requires solid interview audio, with a lot less background noise, the talent from a distance— all without breaking the bank($585US). Not too much to ask right? Here is why in my opinion the DPA 4097 CORE Interview Kit might be a good fit for you.
I could not wait to get the Atomos Ninja V Recorder Monitor along with the Z CAM E2 out of the boxes and get this review underway. The Atomos Ninja V is way up there as one of the most popular and bestselling Recorder Monitors out there, and with good reason. But before I get to some of the specifications of the Atomos Ninja V, it just wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t talk about the features that made this review so much fun.
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?
Crip Camp, the documentary, which debuted at Sundance, was executive produced by the Obamas just launched on Netflix. Crip Camp follows Camp Jened, a unique summer camp for teens with disabilities that would become the launching pad of the disability-rights movement and shape accessibility legislation for decades to come.
When I was first approached about doing a review for the MXL BCD-1 I was pretty excited. Most of the time I focus on reviewing our creative visual tools of the trade. There is never a shortage of equipment like cameras, lighting, and various other gear.
