Hey everyone!


It's been a while since I've put anything up but. To make up for lost time, here's a really good comparison of the new Blackmagic Designs Cinema Camera and the Canon 5D MkIII by One River Media. The video takes a comprehensive look at sharpness, dynamic range, rolling shutter and much more. At 15min, it's longer than the typical internet attention span but well worth the watch if your interested in using these two cameras.

BR Optics Solves Color Fringing in Canon’s New EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM Lens

BR Optics reduces color fringing in Canon’s New EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM Lens

A lens’s optical characteristics can’t be determined at face value — that’s why it’s important for a manufacturer to note these distinctions with as much clarity and pomp as possible. But why should anyone care that Canon’s new technology reduces color fringing in their EF 35mm f/1.4 L II USM lens? Because chromatic aberration is an undesirable type of distortion causing a lens to fail at focusing all colors at the same convergence point; the result being to manifest itself as “fringes” of color along those boundaries separating dark and bright parts of an image.

Canon Announces New EOS M3 Mirrorless Camera

Canon's EOS M3 Digital Camera is made for enthusiast photographers

A high-quality interchangeable-lens camera doesn’t have to be accompanied by a high price — not if Canon’s EOS M3 Digital Camera is the camera in question. The latest addition to the EOS family, the compact, mirrorless M3 boasts a high-resolution 24.2MP CMOS sensor, DIGIC 6 advanced image processor and a 49-point autofocus system for shooting stills and Full HD videos.

I'll just pre-empt this query by making you all aware that I know next to nothing about cameras!

I'm a film-making neophyte to say the least and am using my DSLR (a Canon 1100D) as a video camera. I know that this is a basic entry point model for first-time buyers of the Canon DSLR range, but I am interested in what the parameters of filming with this particular model are and whether I would be better off just buying a purpose built cam-corder?

Dear all,


Just joined the forum to ask for your advice since I'm a budding professional on video shootings.


I would like to buy a video camera for corporate video shootings and outdoor shootings (as of hobby). I definetely don't want a shoulder type camera.


Eventhough I loved the images of Canon 5D Mark 2, I read, it's not very fisible to buy that one for shooting videos since it gets warm quickly and screen isn't movable. And afterall, it's a photograph machine, not a video camera.

Hi, I'm looking for a camcorder to make short films, documentaries, music videos, concerts reviews, and some low light situations. My first choice was a Canon Vixia HF G30, but then I saw the promo video for the Sony AX100 and it was mind blowing. My question is: Should I get the Sony PXW-X70 instead? looks more professional to me! 

Camera Updates With Canon’s VIXIA Series and the CS100

white camcorder with screen flipped around
Our team at CES discovered three Canon cameras, VIXIA HF R62, VIXIA HF R60, and VIXIA HF R600, that represent updates to the well-known VIXIA line. We’ll start with the differences, the VIXIA HF R600 is the lowest costed camera and available in white or the standard electronic black. Also, saving video is taking new shape with the Canon CS100, a storage solution for up to 1TB for photos and videos.

Hi everyone,
Not sure if we are allowed to post links to items we have for sale or not? I couldn't find any rules. If this isn't ok I'm sorry and I can delete it.

We were just robbed almost all of our video equipment. $5k worth of stuff. It stinks, but we are making the best of it by trying to sell a few of the things that they didn't get so we can afford to get more cameras. Thought I'd post the link here to see if there is anyone looking for these items.
