Last week I got my hands on the brand new IPL and Imicro batteries from IDX to see how they compare to the other V-Lock batteries available.
Earlier this year I spent five whole days watching batteries drain and then recharge. It was so thrilling that I’ve decided to do it again; this time with industry favourites PAG and IDX.
I compare a range of V-Mount batteries to see how well they perform in a ‘real world’ test. The basis of the test is simple – to see how long they can power a camera for, and how long they take to recharge.
Another year, another trip down to London for the BSC Expo. It’s easily the best trade show in the UK for Cinematographers – unlike others, there’s no sound, editing or broadcast stuff – it’s all cameras, lenses, lighting and grip!
The British Society of Cinematographers held it’s annual Expo at the Battersea Evolution Centre in London this weekend just gone. The Expo is a great opportunity to see new products being showcased and to catch up with colleagues and acquaintances.
