Airport Security Staff are Going to Hate Wearable Cameras

by sbrothier
What follows is the story of my brush with Homeland Security today while entering the United States a few hours ago. It was all my fault, but I get the feeling I was an early example of something that staff in airports around the world will have to deal with regularly as wearable data collection devices become more common…

How To Tether Your Camera To An Ipad Without Jailbreaking | Fstoppers

by sbrothier
Last year I released a video explaining how to wirelessly tether your camera to an iPad by jailbreaking the iPad. Since then Eye-Fi has released a firmware update that makes wireless tethering possible without the need for jailbreaking. Now, not only is the whole process much easier to set up, it is also much cheaper because you no longer have to pay for the more expensive Pro Eye-Fi card, you can make this work with the cheaper Connect X2 card.

Canon Cinema EOS

by sbrothier & 1 other
Built from the ground up for the serious filmmaker. Every detail, from sensor design to lens mount to I/O and codec is inspired by and created for the industry. We interviewed hundreds of people in the business to truly understand their wants and needs. They spoke; we listened. The result - the Canon Cinema EOS system. Leveraging decades of Canon experience delivering imaging technology and services, Cinema EOS is more than the sum of its parts - camera body, lenses, service and support; it's a definitive HD motion picture system, conceived as an extension of the cinematographer. And this is just the beginning. Expect many more announcements in the months to come - all part of Canon's commitment to provide professionals with the tools and support they need to tell their stories.

The following is a catalogue of the different pieces of gear I have been using in my kit – some for years and some only more recently. I have included the items I currently use and love most, and just like my kit, expect this list to be ever evolving. There will be new additions to the list over time, and I will continue to populate it with examples and behind the scenes footage of the gear in action.

Test de l'Eye-Fi Pro

by sbrothier
L'Eye-Fi est une carte SD un peu à part : elle dispose d'une puce WiFi qui permet le transfert des photos de l'appareil à l'ordinateur, sans avoir jamais besoin de sortir la carte de son logement ou de brancher un câble. Mieux : elle permet l'envoi direct vers des services en ligne. Nous avions eu l'occasion de tester une carte Eye-Fi Explore l'an dernier (lire : Test de la carte SD Wi-Fi Eye-Fi). Il lui manquait le support des fichiers RAW, entre autres : c'est un point que règle la Eye-Fi Pro que nous testons aujourd'hui.

Open Camera Controller Introduction

by sbrothier & 2 others, 1 comment
The OCC project arose from our need to shoot HDR images for film production using Canon cameras. Canon has stubbornly chosen to stick to its standard 3-shot method for bracketing shots - one metered shot and two additional shots one or two stops above and below the metered shot. For texture shooting, it is sometimes necessary to shoot 5,7,9 or even 11 or more stops of bracketing around the metered exposure. We’ve since found that the OCC system can work with other brands like Olympus and Sigma cameras.

Lights, camera, Ikea hack! Romain turns the Ivar side unit into rails for the cam. "A few days ago, I found out that the Ivar "wooden ladder" was perfect to use it as rails for my cinema dolly! I can now make some nice sequence shots with this 18€ accessory from Ikea."

Dan Saelinger Photography » Build Your Own Dolly

by sbrothier & 1 other, 1 comment (via)
As mentioned on numerous posts, like every other photographer these days I’m making the leap into video. While equipment is relatively affordable things can quickly add up especially when you start getting into the numerous needed accessories. I knew a dolly was going to be a necessary purchase pretty early on and I had been eyeing the great kit offered at Microdolly, but at around 2000.00 it was a bit more than I wanted invest this early on.
