Mirrorless camera sales don't reflect potential USA TODAY Even though the image quality is on par with traditional DSLRs, mirrorless cameras don't have as many moving parts and almost always come in smaller, lighter bodies.
Very interesting to see the differences between the USA and the rest of the world on mirrorless acceptance
I enjoy color correction and appreciate the way color and light shapes real life and film. I often samples color from images for graphics in videos. A new app by Adobe lets you sample real life quickly and easily. Kuler is an iOS app that samples 5 colors from anything you aim your iPhone’s camera at in real time...

Very interesting to see the Segway being used to replace dolly shots and how they're using RED Scarlets to shoot 4k (watch the video and don't forget to read the text, it isn't all in the vid).

I have been shooting a feature film called No Ordinary Hero with the new Canon 5D Mk III using the clean video output to an Atomos Ninja 2 and recording to ProRes 422 Hq. This was a conscious choice for several reasons, the main one being that we have a dozen or so FX shots, mostly green screen composites and we needed the fattest “negative” our low budget film could afford...
Getting the absolute best quality encode at the smallest possible bandwidth is hard. We’ll delve into the requirements for the best quality master, techniques for pre-processing the signal to improve the encode and some super-secret techniques for getting the best upload quality to major distribution sites, like blip.tv, MySpace and YouTube. Naturally we'll cover the importance of the upcoming H.265 codec and what it means. This is for anyone that wants to encode with maximum quality.

At Computex, Intel officially branded its next-generation Thunderbolt as Thunderbolt 2. As a recap, current Ivy Bridge platforms use Cactus Ridge Thunderbolt controllers while newly launched Haswell platforms use Redwood Ridge. Redwood Ridge maintains feature compatibility, but you get official support for DisplayPort 1.2 (and 4K resolution) if you're using a DisplayPort monitor. This extension of DP 1.2 support does not apply to Thunderbolt displays or DP 1.2 displays connected to a Thunderbolt chain however. The explanation is simple. Redwood Ridge won't be sold for use in devices, only host computers, which is why you can't plug a 4K DP 1.2 display into a Thunderbolt chain and have it work (since none of the members of the chain will support 4K passthrough).
