Fun to go back and look at where we were just 3 short years ago - DSLR video is still very much about stability isn't it? Brian looked so young ;)

How to Balance 3 Axis Brushless Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer » CheesyCam | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Earlier I tested the CAME 5000 stabilizer with a Panasonic GH3 (found here). These new stabilizers work best when your camera is perfectly balanced. There was no instruction manual on how to properly balance a camera on this stabilizer, but I think i’ve figured it out.

FREE EBOOK: iZotope Releases Audio Repair with RX 3: Tools, Tips and Techniques

FREE EBOOK: iZotope Releases Audio Repair with RX 3: Tools, Tips and Techniques | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Audio Repair with RX 3 outlines the most common types of audio problems in recordings and covers the fundamental concepts of audio repair, while providing helpful tips from professionals for salvaging previously unusable audio.

Geared toward helping users approach audio restoration based on their specific goals, readers can navigate through a wealth of tips and techniques from professionals including Emmy award-winning sound mixer Bill Jackson, Pro Tools Expert deputy editor Mike Thornton, and others.

planetMitch's insight:

This free ebook from iZotope will expose you to some common audio problems and how they can be fixed (of course, they show you how to do it with their tools - they do hope you'll buy their products after all).


I've been thru the book twice. The first time, I honestly was a bit lost with all the terminology and things I knew nothing about! The second read made a lot more sense and once I get a copy of RX 3, it will help even more.


You may not be in the market for their software, but if you've ever been curious about how to possibly fix some common problems with your recordings, then at least download this and skim it... you never know when that knowledge will come in handy!

Now $405!!! Cheapest 4K HDMI Display Monitor with MacBook Pro Retina @CheesyCam | HDSLR | Scoop.it

The reason why these Seiki 4K Displays are so cheap is that they are just stripped down to bare bones. You won’t find a tuner, or a set of quality speakers. There’s no fancy aluminum housing with a coated glass screen. You won’t find a Smart WiFi interface with Netflix, YouTube, or Hulu. It’s simply a display, but for the price – a damn good display!

Wow - Amazon has this for $405 right now!

PostWorks on Feature Finishing Techniques for Nonfiction TV

PostWorks on Feature Finishing Techniques for Nonfiction TV | HDSLR | Scoop.it

High-resolution digital cinema cameras, raw recording and sophisticated color-grading systems are familiar in feature-film and scripted-television production. They're less common in the world of nonfiction television production, with its notoriously tight budgets and rapid turnarounds. But that's starting to change. Lower-cost technology and more efficient workflows are helping nonfiction shows catch up with those high-end techniques. - See more at: http://www.studiodaily.com/2013/12/postworks-on-feature-finishing-techniques-for-nonfiction-tv/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=postworks-on-feature-finishing-techniques-for-nonfiction-tv#sthash.Z5NaUhFs.dpuf

Pros Have Bad Moments: The Drone That Loved The Icy Waters - The Phoblographer

Pros Have Bad Moments: The Drone That Loved The Icy Waters - The Phoblographer | HDSLR | Scoop.it

Though we wish that no photographer has a bad day, it sure seems like Chase Jarvis had one. In an experiment gone horribly wrong, a DJI Phantom, a Quadracopter meant for photographers and videographers, took a swim in the frigid Iceland waters. When it fell into the water, a Sony RX 100 II went along with it. They were trying to use that camera because of its image stabilization and raw capabilities. However the Quadracopter was meant for a GoPro camera. The hack they tried was well thought out, but it did not work out well in the end.

Katie Webber's curator insight, December 11, 2013 3:41 PM

This study is really interesting. I have to say myself that I agree with all of this. Whenever I just take pictures of objects from far away, I don't remember it as well compared to when I do take close up pictures. The next time I take pictures I'm going to pay closer attention to what I'm taking so I can have a better memory of what I'm looking at.
