Back Bone Cine Mod GoPro Hero 3. Nikon Lens Mount Adapter. « Wide Open Camera | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Back Bone has announced a face plate lens adapter for the GoPro Hero 3 camera. It looks like they have both C-Mount and Nikon mount adapters. This requires some minor surgery to the camera but should be well worth the effort. Finally we can use real glass on these puppies! Back Bone has no release date or price just yet. Here is a rip from the website. A Big THANKS! to @EricDiosay for the lead.

Is "Sony Ci" the Cloud-Based Filmmaking Workspace that We've All Been Waiting For? « No Film School | HDSLR | Scoop.it

There aren’t many things that I’m absolutely sure about, but the notion that Cloud-based computing and creative collaboration are the future seems almost indisputable at this point. There are a few options already in existence for creative collaboration through the cloud, Adobe’s Creative Cloud being the first one to come to mind. However, in terms of tools that are made with filmmakers in mind, the options are even more limited. However, Sony is looking to change all of that with their new interactive cloud-based creative collaboration platform, simply entitled “Ci”.
