Pleasures & Rewards of Using Fujifilm’s XT-1 for Stills Footage | HDSLR | Scoop.it
Way back in the 1990s, Ken Burns’ groundbreaking documentary series ‘The Civil War’ first alerted me to how effective using still images in movies can be.

X-Men, The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Boxtrolls Highlight SIGGRAPH Sessions

X-Men, The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Boxtrolls Highlight SIGGRAPH Sessions | HDSLR | Scoop.it

This has been a banner year for blockbusters, depending on your point of view. If you're a studio exec studying box-office returns you might be unhappy with a double-digit decline in box-office revenues this summer. (Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which is looking to rake in some serious dough this weekend, might help balance the scales somewhat.) But if you're a moviegoer, you're pretty happy — looking at CinemaScore audience reviews and Metacritic's index of movie reviews, Entertainment Weekly found that paying moviegoers are as happy with this year's big releases as last year's — and critics think this year's movies are an improvement from last year. And if you're a VFX artist, you've got a lot to look at, from the strikingly photoreal CG of The Lego Movie to the amazing character work in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

EOSHD Crowns A7S King of Video, Deposes Canon 5D Mark III Magic Lantern | Fstoppers | HDSLR | Scoop.it
If you want to learn video on DSLRs and the like, there are few better resources than EOSHD. Andrew Reid is extremely knowledgable (it actually frightens me how much he knows) and is excellent as a real pro talking about, often, consumer equipment. He recently did a large test with the A7s against a set of cameras, and he says it's replaced his go-to 5D Mark III with Magic Lantern raw.
