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.
Last night, RED announced some changes to their ever-evolving line up of cameras. It isn’t a new camera or sensor this time, but rather, they’ve shrunk the number of cameras, sensors, names and prices.
Much has been said about Sigma’s new cinema lenses – both good and bad. Particularly their high speed zooms, the 18-35 T2 and 50-100 T2. Sigma recently loaned me a pair of the zooms and so I took the opportunity to get to the bottom of things.
I’ve been a fan of Bright Tangerine’s products for some time now, and recently I had the opportunity to field test one of their new goodies – the ‘Morrissey’ 15mm LWS lens support. Already owning a 15mm lens support, I was keen to see how theirs compared.
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!
