Tyler's one of Canon’s prestigious Explorers of Light as well as a multiple award winning photographer so clearly someone who knows what he's talking about when it comes to the 5D. After the break there's a behind-the-scenes look with this top adventurer photographer and videographer at work with two Canon 5Ds and an iDC rig.
We've long believed that the 5D was a game changer, but when you find out that an organisation as big and powerful as The Associated Press not only held that same belief two years ago, but took the bold decision of embracing the DSLR revolution, then it really shows how important the 5D has been. Great work from Beet.tv for finding this story. More after the break including news about cloud editing.
We are having a bit of an audio day here at FCP.co towers. We spotted this video when researching the compliance plugin and found out how a poor method of measuring audio is employed in Final Cut Pro.
Eyeheight have released complianceSuiteFC - a set of professional broadcast filter and generator plug-ins for Apple Final Cut Studio and Final Cut Express. The idea is that this package takes care of all your compliance issues, but with a retail price of £695, or £795 for sister product KARMaudioAU it seems a little bit outside the normal price range of the FCP eco system.

Jorgen Escher made this FCP plugin in a response to a cry for help from Marvels Film. The plugin has been designed to battle the disturbing problem of micro-moiré which appeared after a Canon 5D MkII shoot. Micro-moiré manifests itself as red/blue color streaks and pixels that appear in natural and irregular patterns, such as hair, water and grass. Download details after the break.
We all know how hard it is trying to turn a buck out there. Well Hollywood Reinvented's Lawrence Jordan has been scratching his head to the extent that he's writing a book about how to survive the economic downturn.
After the break an insightful and amusing excerpt into his Top Ten techniques for increasing your profile.
Joel and Ethan Coen are well known for co-producing, co-writing and co-directing. Although their co-editing style is perhaps less well known, they are firm believers in the powers of FCP. More on True Grit's post-production process after the break.
We are really glad somebody has sat down and been through the audio filters one by one to see what each one does. Normally we stick to the favourites like compressors and hum roll-offs and don't have time to experiment, so this two part tour by FCP guru Jon Chappell is invaluable. The first part of his guide after the break.
It seems there's no need to spend thousands on rigs and mounts for your 5D when you can go to Ikea, spend $7 on a cutting board, use some old pipe and suddenly you've got a DSLR shoulder mount! More after the break.
