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. - And in this weeks episode we're talking about a new action camera. Now, folks are always saying to us, besides the GoPro, what else is out there? If you watch Video Gear Weekly we have covered a lot of other things. We cover GoPro because we like GoPro, but there are a lot of other systems out there. We've talked about the Vert. - Yeah, we've talked about the Vert, we've talked about Sony Camera, we've talked about a few others. But the fact is that it's kind of like Kleenex. When people think of Kleenex, even though Kleenex is a brand name, you know, it's the same idea.
They think GoPro, they think action camera. That's just the nature of marketing and sort of the popularity of it. But the truth is there are a ton of other action type cameras out there and this week, Rich, we have one appropriately named, the Cube. This is from Polaroid and this guy looks like a cube. - It's smaller than a GoPro. - Yeah, much smaller than a GoPro. It has some sort of hipster style rainbow banding on here. - Well that's the old Polaroid banding. It's going for retro. So Polaroid itself is really at this point more of a brand than a camera company.
- Yeah, totally. - But Polaroid is behind this camera, or at least a manufacturer that licensed Polaroid's name is behind this camera. - Yeah, we shot with this over a few days and I'm relatively impressed by it. It has some positive things, it has some shortcomings. The thing that I really like, or course, is the size and some other stuff that we'll get into this week. But as an action camera, the ecosystem is maybe not quite as big, or not nearly as big as a GoPro ecosystem, but that doesn't mean that you can't use it in all the same ways, in terms of mounting it to your body, mounting it to various things like bikes or whatever.
This week we'll go into some of the ways of using this camera. Some of the things we like, some of the things we dislike, and then of course, as we do all the time when we look at new cameras, we'll take a look at some footage.
