at-x 116 pro dx v follow focus lens tokina video

The new offering from Tokina is a lens for video. Their Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II reappears ready to use a follow focus gear.

By Jose Antunes | February 04, 2015

The industry never ceases to amaze us. Kenko Tokina Co. Ltd. decided to pick one of their most popular lenses, the Tokina AT-X 116 PRO DX-II 11-16mm f/2.8 lens available for Canon, Nikon and Sony, and build it with an interlocking follow focus gear, transforming it in a lens that may become the choice for those that use Tokina and do video on a regular basis. The AT-X 116 PRO DX V (V is for Video, I presume) may well become a trend, if this works.

Day 4 #28daysofquicktips - Override clip connections in Final Cut Pro X

at-x 116 pro dx v follow focus lens tokina video

There are times when you just don't want those Connected Clips to move

By Scott Simmons | February 04, 2015

One fundamental feature of Final Cut Pro X is the Connected Clip be they single video or audio clips or Secondary Storylines. Once you’ve made them and established those connection points Connected Clips will slide around and move as their parent clips are moved; be that via a trimming operation or click and drag. But there are times (quite possibly a lot of times) when you want the Connected Clips to stay put as you adjust the parent clip. The tilde (or grave accent) key comes to the rescue to Override Clip Connections.

While we are on Final Cut Pro X keyboard keys (see yesterday’s quicktip about G for Storyline Mode) here is something I did very early on when using FCPX: I made a new keyboard set and began remapping the number keys 1 - 9.

This tip saves me a lot of time watching FCPX redraw filmstrip thumbnails

By Scott Simmons | February 01, 2015

For some reason most all of my Final Cut Pro X job seem to revolved around talking head interviews. This is fine and we can tell some good stories from interviews but I’ve found that the redrawing of thumbnails in the FCPX timeline can take up a lot of time throughout the day. I’ve sped that up with this tip.

Canon EOS-1D C Now Costs $4,000 Less

at-x 116 pro dx v follow focus lens tokina video

From February on Canon reduces the price of their EOS-1D C, the first DSLR with 4K capability recording internally since 2012.

By Jose Antunes | January 31, 2015

With a series of announcements for the 6th of February which have made the rumour mill work at full speed the last couple of weeks, Canon may be well preparing  the path for their future cameras. The drop in price for the EOS-1D C, which on the 1st  of February, a few hours from now, will cost $7,999 instead of $11,999, is a sign of things to come. And soon the market will have cameras offering three formats in the same body: Full Frame, APS-H and APS-C.

28 Days of Quicktips 2015 -  #28daysofquicktips

at-x 116 pro dx v follow focus lens tokina video

A tip a day for 28 days. Send your own and maybe win a prize!

By Scott Simmons | January 31, 2015

Way, way back in the year 2009 when I started this channel on PVC I published the 28 Days of Quicktips. And then we did it again in 2011 and included reader quicktips. It was exactly what the title says, one Quicktip a day for the entire month of February that somehow related to post-production. We’re going to do it again for 2015. Like we did in 2011, this year we're also looking for user submitted Quicktips. Just send us your favorite short Quicktip and an accompanying image or two that helps illustrate the tip and we'll try to publish those as well. And as an incentive to send us your own Quicktips I will choose what I personally judge to be the best submission and send them a free copy of the Color Correction Handbook. Details below.

Sports Solutions white paper for NewTek LatAm/EMEA

at-x 116 pro dx v follow focus lens tokina video

I wrote a new white paper for NewTek Latin America, and Europe/Middle East/Africa is now requesting an English translation.

By Allan Tépper | January 30, 2015

After the great popularity of the NewTek New Scopes white paper I published for NewTek US, the Latin American department then contracted me to translate/localize it for its own region. Later, the NewTek Latin American division requested a series of other white papers, starting with the NewTek Sports Solutions white paper. Despite its rather narrow title, this white paper will also be quite valuable for anybody planning a live multicamera video system. Shortly thereafter, the NewTek EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) division requested an English translation/localization. Ahead you’ll find the table of contents and more.
