Q&A with Adam Sidman, inventor of a unique, gyro-based, camera stabilizing rig imaging resource (You can see it in action in a video clip here.) We recently interviewed Sidman about his device and found out a little more about how it ...

Lens and filter manufacturer Schneider Optics showed a new family of cine-style prime lenses aimed at Canon's 5D Mark III and Nikon D800 cameras at NAB. The Xenon FF-Primes, designed and to be built by Schneider-Kreuznach in Germany, feature a rugged exterior, optics engineered for full-frame 4K (4096 × 2304 pixels) sensors, oversized and easily readable focus and distance scales on both sides of the lens, a 300-degree focus turn and a 14-blade aperture intended to create smoother and more consistent bokeh.
Recently, I have been shooting HDR 360˚ Panorama images using a beautiful little Rokinon 7.5-mm Fisheye on my Olympus M4/3 (MFT) camera. In my view, this lens is nothing short of amazing. This kind of photography is not new to me.
The photos in the included article are very well done - I'm not usually an HDR fan... but I do wish they would expand to larger size when clicked so I could see them better.
The Canon Rebel line have always been excellent entry level cameras, so Chris and I were eager to check out the specs on the latest camera.

Canon U.S.A. has launched a new educational resource that may be of interest to your readers – the Cinema EOS C500 4K Digital Cinema Camera Menu Simulator. Developed by the Canon Digital Learning Center (CDLC), the EOS C500 Menu Simulator is a fully interactive platform that allows users to familiarize themselves with the camera’s Main Menu and Custom Picture Menu.
With this innovative training tool, prospective users of the EOS C500 can navigate the simulated menu system with a mouse, keyboard arrow keys or their fingers (when using a touch screen device). Ideal for cinematographers, camera operators, camera assistants, producers, and directors, the Menu Simulator provides a platform to research camera behavior and features.
For added convenience, the EOS C500 Menu Simulator has been optimized for use on personal computers and tablet devices so it can be used at home, on set, or on-the-go.
Good to see tools to help see the menu system of a camera - could be good to help decide to purchase or even to help on set.
