What's one of the best parts about being a video professional? All the cool gear! In this weekly series, Rich Harrington and Robbie Carman team up to discuss the latest and greatest equipment for video production and post. They talk about the newest cameras, like the Blackmagic 4K, pocket cinema cameras, and GoPros; accessories and adapters that will make your shoots run smoother; and the great tech being invented every day. And because they keep both cost and quality in mind, you'll never have to worry about blowing your budget or compromising production value. Come back every Friday for a new tip.
This series is from RHED Pixel. We're honored to host this training in our library.
- Hi, my name's Rich Harrington. - And I'm Robbie Carman. - Welcome to this week's episode of Video Gear Weekly. And this week, Rob, we got a new camera - [Rob] Yeah. - [Rich] to look at. - [Rich] I like new cameras. - Yeah, this is a cool one. Announced at NAB this year, this is the Blackmagic Studio Camera. Now the Studio Camera comes into two variants, it's gonna come in an HD version, which is this one that we have right here, and a 4K version. We're lucky enough to get our hands on the HD version and it's a pretty, pretty neat camera. But most of all, the best feature is that it's actually shipping which is kind of a new thing - [Rob] for Blackmagic. - [Rich] Yeah.
(laughter) - [Rich] Now, there's obviously, you know, depending upon when you access this in the lynda.com library these cameras coulda been out for a long time. But what Rob is referencing is that Blackmagic has a long history of announcing products and then taking... - A little bit of time to get them out there in the wild. - Like a year - Yeah. - to get them out. - So it was nice to get this, you know, actually get it out in the wild. And this is a studio camera which is a whole new set of features and some drawbacks and that's kinda what we're gonna go into this week. Give you a little bit of a tour of the camera. Let you know the things that we like, the things that we don't like, give you a tour of the features of the camera and as I said, Rich, this is not, you know, a camera for everybody.
It's a studio camera and that entails a lot of things. Like not having storage and being set up more specifically for the studio. - Yep, and we'll explore all of those things on this week's show.
