Canon - Losing Relevance & How They Need to Change

In a lot of my posts, I often dish out criticism towards Canon (often unfairly). But they don’t innovate and I don’t believe they are staying relevant in an industry where their competitors are taking huge steps to cram unbelievable features into their camera bodies.

Atomos announce Shogun Inferno, AtomOS updates and what this means for the Odyssey 7Q+

Earlier today, Atomos announced their latest flagship recorder/monitor…  The Shogun Inferno.

The new unit is capable of 4K RAW up to 60p, HD up to 240fps, includes the new HDR operating system and has quad SDI. 

Coupled with 10bit 4:2:2 (ProRes & DNxHR) recording, this will become a powerful tool for filmmakers regardless of whether they are outputting RAW from an FS7, C300 Mark II or Panasonic VariCam LT, or shooting high quality ProRes files from mirrorless or DSLR cameras.

Why the Panasonic VariCam LT is going to turn heads in 2016

Why the Panasonic VariCam LT is going to turn heads in 2016

While the VariCam 35 is the company’s flagship Super 45mm 4K camera, heads will probably be turned to the release of the VariCam LT, the little brother to the VariCam 35. The LT is half the price, half the size and can take Canon EF or PL mounts. It also borrows the same sensor as its bigger brother with a few compromises such as 4K in 60p, instead of 4K 120fps.
