When Pebble announced its Kickstarter to fund its watch a few years ago, I jumped on board. For two years I enjoyed the functions and features of the watch, but there was something lacking. Apparently, the company also found something lacking, as it announced it is shutting down operations.
Binaural audio recording has always fascinated me since I first heard it and learned about it college oh so many years ago. In 1992, a binaural microphone setup cost $10,000 or move. Bad news, in 2016, a Neumann KU 100 Dummy Head Microphone costs $8,000, but there are several cheaper alternatives.
DJI, the company behind most of the remote controlled quad copters that I fly, has just announced the Inspire 1, an elegant copter that combines the best of high end and affordability.
Since 2005 I’ve been podcasting my thoughts to the world. It started with The Coolness Roundup that I co-hosted with Charlie White, and has since grown to include seven weekly shows on the Major Spoilers Podcast Network. Over the years, the gear that I use to record podcasts has changed, but for the last four years, I’ve settled on a couple of different setups for the various shows I produced.
While I don’t have the artistic skills that many have, I can’t help but want a Cintiq 24HD Touch for nothing more than working in Adobe After Effects (masking), and LightWave 3D (modeling).
I’ve used Wacom tablets for years, but it has always been a weird feeling trying to draw or mask while not looking at area I’m drawing on. Add in the touch aspect of the Cintiq 24HD Touch, and I think this is the solution for me.
Now I only need $3,699.00.
Anyone want to donate the funds or send me one of these?
Canon has announced the upcoming release of the Canon 5D Mark III the successor to the ever popular 5D Mark II that many film and television crews love to use. I have two 5D Mark IIs, will today’s announcement prompt me to go on a selling spree to get the Mark III?
A while ago I contributed to the CineSkates Kickstarter campaign, and have been thoroughly pleased with what Justin Jensen delivered. The low profile dolly system works really well, and the number of angles that can be captured thanks to the GorillaPod legs is a brilliant move.
Now Cinetics have announced a brand new product – CineSquid that allows you to mount your DSLR or small vidcam to a moving vehicle.
