cine summit shane hurlbut workshop

A manual focus lens is not the choice for many, but a lens conceived for follow focus systems may be exactly what some want.

By Jose Antunes | January 13, 2015

The new Samyang 135mm T2.2 ED UMC VDSLR Cine Lens (also known in some markets as Rokinon) may not be the lens for everybody, but the truth is that Samyang tried hard to make it interesting for video. Besides launching it for multiple mounts or bayonets, the company has built the lens so it offers integrated gearing for video rigs with follow focus systems.

Dear Filmmaker: you really need to start learning about this end of the business.

By Arthur Vincie | January 11, 2015

In November I went to my very first American Film Market.  If you're a filmmaker or any kind of "content creator," you really need to start learning about this end of the business.  I'm still a neophyte, so this is less a definitive guide and more of a set of observations and tips that I picked up while there.

IK Multimedia: Android will finally receive proper USB audio support

cine summit shane hurlbut workshop

Thanks to IK Multimedia, many Android devices should receive proper USB audio support soon.

By Allan Tépper | January 10, 2015

For the past few years, I have been covering many third-party USB audio devices for iOS phones and tablets in ProVideo Coalition magazine, including digital microphones and audio interfaces with built-in A>D conversion. Even though I am a Mac user who prefers Android for my mobile phone, I have so far emphasized iOS (iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch) since there has been such weak support for digital USB audio with Android. This was supposed to change with Android 5 (Lollipop). However, there have still been latency issues. IK Multimedia promises to be the hero to resolve this soon for certain Android phones and tablets. Details ahead.
