All we can say is "Ouch"
This short film shows the construction of the Leadenhall Building in London. 2 years and 8 terabytes of 5K & 7K timelapses/hyperlapses all edited (in the end) on Final Cut Pro X then published at 4K resolution. A stunning FCPX user story.
You've been thinking about purchasing a Sony PMW-F3, a great camera at a great price, but then you factor in the cost of putting some prime lenses on this mother of all cameras, and suddenly you're retreating back to your DSLR double-quick time. Well think again those old Nikons you've got hanging around might just do the job. More after the break.
Slightly off topic but well worth a watch, this clever advertisement for The Camera Store got us smiling on a friday morning.
Color Grading Central have today launched a $69 effect plugin for FCPX that gives a film look to your DSLR footage
We have been accused of being Canon biased on FCP.co. Not so. It's just that there seems to be more people shooting video on Canons than Nikon DSLRs. So when we saw this video, we thought we would post it on the front page.
A home made beer bottle follow focus rig. Ingenious. Just add beer can straw cap, and the DSLR redneck look is complete!
Entertaining stuff from the Photo Club with their riff on the Canon Nikon wars. It ain't Romeo and Juliet, no Capulets dissing Montagues here, but the unrequited love of these two HDSLR addicts is well worth a view.·
It has been demoed at trade shows, meetups and has been in beta for a few months, but BulletProof from Red Giant is finally with us. They've also released new compilation packs of products based on tasks.
You can't have failed to miss the many demo videos about Technicolor's CineStyle picture style that allows Canon DSLR owners more latitude colour correcting video in post production. Nikon owners now have the same opportunity.
Nails, fire, footballs and even a cup of hot tea, just how much abuse can a modern DSLR take?
Standby for three minutes of incredible video. Rob Whitworth takes hyperlapses to a new level (quite literally) in this not to be missed Vimeo video.
Forget Zacuto, forget Redrock Micro, these guys have developed the ultimate in DSLR rigs. We have no idea on price or availability, but we are sure there's nothing quite like it on the market. It is friday too.
The Invisible Peak is a superb short film about the history of Mt. Tamalpais in Marin County in the North San Francisco Bay Area. Shot and edited by Gary Yost, he has very kindly put together a very detailed description of how the film was shot using stunning time lapses and of course how it was all put together in Final Cut Pro X.
We have come across many rigs ever since the 5D sparked the huge interest in shooting on a DSLR. This one from Edelkrone is slightly different as the name suggests.
People use FCPX in many different ways. One of the uses we didn't expect it would shine at is stop motion animation editing.
