Canon’s New EOS Rebel T6s Offers HDR Movie

Understanding Your Audio Deliverables

Along with the two new professional EOS 5DS models Canon introduced two new Rebels, one featuring HDR movie.

By Jose Antunes | February 06, 2015

The new Rebel options from Canon, the EOS Rebel T6s and EOS Rebel T6i cameras (EOS 760D and EOS 750D in some markets), may well be models that videographers should look at with some attention. They still only offer Full HD, but for those users that do video, there are some aspects to consider if looking for an accessible camera.

Canon EOS 5Dsi: More Pixels, Same Video

Understanding Your Audio Deliverables

Canon did not enhance the video features of their new DSLRs, EOS 5Dsi and Canon EOS 5DS Ri. In fact they have less features.

By Jose Antunes | February 06, 2015

One could almost say that cinematographers can pass this one: Canon slimmed down the video and enhanced the photographic aspects of their new camera(s). But it is not quite as simple as that.

Day 6 #28daysofquicktips - Option click to move the Final Cut Pro X playhead

Understanding Your Audio Deliverables

Clicking a clip moves the skimmer but you might want to move the playhead too

By Scott Simmons | February 06, 2015

The Final Cut Pro X Skimmer is an awesome thing. But you still have a traditional playhead when working in an FCPX timeline (or Project if you want to use Apple’s term for a timeline). There might be times when you want the playhead to move to a specific frame but just clicking a clip doesn’t move the playhead, it selects the clip.

Day 5 #28daysofquicktips - Move a Clip’s Connection Point in Final Cut Pro X

Understanding Your Audio Deliverables

Sometimes that little connection tail isn't in the right place

By Scott Simmons | February 05, 2015

One fundamental concept of Final Cut Pro X and its trackless timeline is Connected Clips. When editing clips outside of a Primary Storyline all clips must connect to something in the Primary Storyline and they move according to that parent clip. But you can, thankfully (and mercifully depending on your POV), move that connection point.

2014 was a big year for PBS, as it marked their 45th anniversary as a broadcaster. That wasn’t the only milestone for them though, as they also saw their content streamed millions of time and accessed in ways it had never been distributed or watched across the entire world. There’s... Read More

Tokina: New Lens Has Interlocking Follow Focus

Understanding Your Audio Deliverables

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

Understanding Your Audio Deliverables

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.
