Editing video with the EditShare Field2

editing editing editshare editshare field editshare field2 premiere pro storage

While a single editor connected isn't EditShare's exact target market the Field2 performed very well

By Scott Simmons | February 03, 2014

A recent edit saw the opportunity to test out a type of media storage that I hadn’t used before: that unit was the EditShare Field 2 portable shared storage server. A hard drive isn’t just a hard drive as configurations, connections and speed are all determining factors when it comes to choosing storage. It’s also important how storage performs in the field as the file-based acquisition world we live in means drives are just as important on the set as they are in the edit suite. Enter the EditShare Field 2 as it went right from shoot to post.

By Jeff Foster | February 01, 2014

Adorama's own Flashpoint brand features products that range from cinematography gear to lighting systems for video and photo and are designed for student photographers and designers on a budget. With few exceptions, the new Flashpoint 180 Portable Monolight and the Glow Grand Softboxes fit that need with flying colors. I put these products to the test in my studio and then handed them off to my friend and colleague, Joe Randeen (3 Penguins Photography) to have a go at testing them as well and I'll be including his comments and images as well in this article.

KinoGrip Wooden Camera Grips

Pimp Your Rig with something Comfortable and Custom

By Matthew Jeppsen | January 28, 2014

Wood handgrips have come back in to vogue lately. There's something lovely about a warm wooden grip when operating a handheld camera. It feels amazing, and it looks damn fine. There are several folks making wood grips these days, a lot of designs are similar to the look of the classic Aaton wooden grip. One company that has sprung up recently is KinoGrip, and they now offer a wide variety of custom trigger and non-triggered grips that hearken back to the Aaton spirit, but with an updated shape. I've been shooting with a KinoGrip for a while now, and love it. Read on for some photos and my thoughts...

A Q and A about those hard drive docking stations we all use

editing editing editshare editshare field editshare field2 premiere pro storage

Are they good? Bad? Dangerous? Will you lose data?

By Scott Simmons | January 24, 2014

If you work in post-production then chances are you have one (or more) hard drive docking stations and a slew of bare hard drives to insert into the dock. They are very affordable, come with many different connection options and are incredibly convenient. Back in August the Digital Cinema Cafe featured guest Topher Martini and they talked hard drives. There was a comment about drive docks that made me want to follow up with Topher. The result is a short Q and A about hard drive docking stations (and a lot of pics of those who are using them).
