New 'Micro' cameras from Blackmagic Design
[permalink] 13.04.2015

Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera photo Blackmagic Design adds two new miniature models to its line of digital cameras, Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K, and Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is a miniaturized Super 16mm professional digital film camera with a revolutionary new expansion port that lets customers use PWM and S.Bus model airplane remote controls to operate the camera wirelessly for capturing action anywhere. These radio control receivers are low cost because they are consumer hobby products and they feature multiple channels that can be connected direct to the camera itself. This means these channels can be mapped to any camera or lens setting in the camera and then remote controlled via the radio controller. Customers can then remote control features such as iris, focus, audio levels, and start and stop recording all remotely. Because a standard easy to solder DB-HD15 connector is used, even simple wire cables and switches can be created for controlling the cameras. The miniaturized design of the Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera features a body that is not much larger than the Micro Four Thirds lens mount, making it as small as a camera with a professional lens can be. The Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera is perfect for use on quadcopters, as a crash cam, or even hidden on set for reality TV. The camera features a global shutter, 1080 HD resolution, and built-in recorder that saves lossless 12-bit log CinemaDNG RAW and broadcast quality Apple ProRes files to SD cards. Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera will be available in July for $995 US. The Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K is a tiny Ultra HD and HD studio camera for live production. It is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand and features a broadcast grade Ultra HD sensor. It also features a built-in color corrector, talkback, tally indicator, PTZ control output, B4 lens control output, and an extremely flexible MFT lens mount that is easily converted to other lens mounts via third party adapters. Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K will be available in July for $1,295 US. [source]

Media Composer First, a free version of Avid's NLE
[permalink] 13.04.2015

Avid Media Composer 7 screenshotAvid is introducing a completely free version of the legendary Media Composer software! The free version is called Media Composer First, and it is a fully capable, yet simple non-linear video editing software. Media Composer First is coming later in 2015, with a feature set yet to be announced. According to Avid: At this time we aren't releasing detailed information on the feature set, as Media Composer First is still in development [...]. However you can expect a limited feature set that makes [it] less intimidating to new users, but also less appealing to power users. You can expect fewer settings, menus, timeline tracks, monitor features, bin features, titling features, effects and other features than the full Media Composer. You can also expect that [it] won't work with Avid Interplay Production, Interplay MAM, or MediaCentral UX, and that shared projects won't be supported on ISIS storage systems. In addition, all projects will be stored in the cloud, and you'll get a limited number of projects and a limited amount of cloud storage space. [source]
