Nikon VS Canon Which To Buy: The ULTIMATE Battle:

Jared Polin December 27, 2014 Comments Off

Nikon VS Canon the Ultimate battle to decide which one you should buy. This is always the question that fills my inbox, “Which camera is better, Nikon or Canon?”. I decided to put together a video that discusses all the FULL Frame models against their counterparts on both sides.

I want to point out that this time around it’s just Nikon and Canon and in the future there will be other brands added to the battle.

The goal with this video is to put the cameras head to head and give you the pros and cons of each. It is up to you to decide which one is for you or not for you. I know this is not an easy decision so I hope this video helps you decide.

When you take a look at the current lineups as of Dec 2nd 2014 when this video was recorded you will notice that Nikon’s is fresh and updated whereas Canon’s is a little long in the tooth. That is not saying that one is better it’s simply saying Nikon has updated their lineup more recently than Canon. Keep in mind this is a never ending cycle that one company will have newer cameras before the other.

Quick Tip: Using a Slider for smooth DSLR Video

Jared Polin December 24, 2014 Comments Off

Slide slide slippidy slide. Do you know how hard it is to hand hold a DSLR or any camera for that matter and get smooth video? I am a big fan of stabilized video but how do you get smooth movements without jerky footage?

In this Quick Tip I broke out the Cinevate Hedron slider to show you the difference between handholding and using a slider for video.

It’s almost impossible to handhold a camera and get a smooth sliding motion. But with a slider you can see how smooth the transition can be. This is just one function of a slider like this but it adds major dimension to your videos. Anytime you can add movement in video and have it be stable and smooth people will enjoy it more than a static shot.

The tip is simple, if you want a smooth sliding motion you are going to need some form of stabilization, in this case we used the Cinevate Hedron silder. For more info on this slider click here.

Last week I posted the seven finalists of the Atomos Ninja Star Contest. Now it’s time to announce 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and prizes.

I must tell you Atomos was extremely happy with the entries so much so that they may want to work with the winner to create a unique video for one of their other products. They also decided to toss in some extra prizes so each of the finalists could win something.

This goes to show you once again that if you put yourself out there there is a chance something good may come of it.
