Don’t switch to Adobe CS just yet!

With the FCPX debacle, a lot of people jumped ship prematurely based on their emotions instead of sound reasoning. And, as most decision based on emotions, it is a bad choice, here is why: First, the old and trusty FCP7 is still as good as it was two weeks ago. So, if FCP7 was good for you, it is still ...

The Rebel 550 4K Hack…

In case you did not know, there is a guy pretending that he hacked the Rebel 550 to record 4K clips. More info on Planet5D here. When I initially saw the teaser video, I discarded it has some hoax and did not act on it, given my very bad track record with rumors. Then got this tweet: Then another one ... Read More »

H.264 realtime editing in FCP? (rumor)

Folks. I think I have been sitting on this news long enough. As you all know, one of the most frustration thing about video editing in HD is that you can never work directly with the original clips without some serious performance hit and frame skipping. The solution to this issue, so far, has been to either use proxies or ... Read More »

A firmware update will come, or not…

Lots of speculations about the elusive firmware update these days. My conviction is that Canon already has the firmware or is working on it as we speak. Why? Just imagine how stupid Canon would look if a lower end Nikon camera can do something that their camera can’t. So far, Canon has been able to keep the 5DMrkII above the ... Read More »
