Lumix FZ2000….Video review coming soon

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments


Panasonic are lending me the Lumix FZ2000 for 28 days, enough time to produce a full video review of this hybrid camera. I did not review the FZ1000 because it lacked a headphone jack.

The video review may not be up till the beginning of March but it will be worth waiting for.

Adobe sting end users by a further £10 a month for “cloud based products”.

Categories: Miscellaneous 4 Comments

 

Citing ‘fluctuating foreign exchange rates’, Adobe has notified Creative Cloud subscribers in the UK and Sweden that they can expect to see their fees increase soon. The price hikes will take effect starting March 6 for month-to-month subscribers; members who have paid for a full year will see a price increase when they renew their plans.

Prices vary by plan, but users are reporting around a £10 per month increase. Emails sent to affected members pointed to a page on Adobe’s support site with an explanation:

‘Currency exchange rates have fluctuated significantly over the last few years. Like many US-based global companies, Adobe is making pricing adjustments in a number of countries to offset fluctuations in foreign exchange rate. Starting on March 6, 2017, the price of Adobe products in the United Kingdom and Sweden will be increased. Existing customers will receive information about their subscription pricing directly from Adobe.’

This is called jumping on the price increase bandwagon…Sony, Sigma have all increased their pricing by 10-15% this year and now Adobe, who don’t have any more work as its cloud based, but the end users get stung again…appalling !

The all new Vimeo Review

Categories: Miscellaneous No Comments

Paid advert campaign running through February and March

If you are a Vimeo Pro or business user you should be aware of the new Vimeo Review.

Need a client to give you scene-specific feedback? Want to let your freelance filmmaker know about some weird coloring on a particular scene? Go for it! It’s simple to share videos securely with reviewers, who can click directly on the video to add time-coded notes. And you can say sayonara to costly third-party services and endless email chains: we’ve got your video-making process covered from start to finish, saving you both time and money.

By pressing the REVIEW PAGE button you are taken to the review page where your clients can add their comments on the video itself.

As you can see above all your comments are added at the right hand side of your screen. As you click on the comment you are taken to the very frame it was added to.  All you need to do is send your client a copy of the page’s URL (top of page) for them to be able to join in and they don’t have to be a member of Vimeo to take part.

Introducing all-new video review pages from Vimeo on Vimeo.

Catching up with some older news, the RODE SM3R looks to be a better mounting system for shotgun mics on your camcorder and for boom setups.

The SM3-R is a suspension shock mount with camera shoe adaptor for mounting various RØDE microphones onto a camera via the standard hot/cold shoe mount. The SM3-R is equipped with dual Rycote Lyre mounts to ensure maximum isolation from any handling vibrations, four possible mounting points to suit the complete range of compatible RØDE on-camera microphones, and integrated cable management clip.

GH5 compared to the Sony FS7 Mk11 an interesting take !

Categories: Miscellaneous 2 Comments

Hugh runs a web site called “Three blind men and an elephant” and gives us his opinion about the new Lumix GH5.

Hugh is a screenwriter and blogger. He lives in Willistown, Chester County, with his fiancé, her son and a dog. He is the father of two grown daughters, one living in Denver, and the other living in Seattle.

HDW : I am not so sure I agree with this comparison as the Sony FS7 Mk11 is a complete different animal.
