Red Epic Dragon and other Cinematic Hammers

How do these Ultra HD Cameras Measure up?

This was definitely a banner year for new cameras at NAB. The continuing evolution of computer as camera had brought another manufacturer into the mix – AJA. It has also meant that Blackmagic has continued to expand their line with the much talked about Ursa, which is a large, heavy and also diametrically opposed system to anything they’ve yet put out – except for the price – because it is a screaming deal at around $6K. The DSLR market also continues to be interesting with the introduction of the Panasonic GH4 and the Sony A7S. Not only are they both 4K but they are clearly purpose built for video. This may not be true when it comes to camcorder-like ergonomics, but certainly is when it comes to the picture they put out. Canon definitely has a bit of catching up to do if these two cameras deliver well at their very low price points.

On the high-end market there is one main player that seems to have been able to sink all the best technology into one amazing little machine. I’m of course speaking of the 6K, 16.5 stop DR, Raw, High Speed and very light and small Red Epic Dragon. It’s the camera every one has been waiting for and it is marvelous. Now some may see me as a fanboy because I have been using a RED camera for going on six years now and that I can’t deny, but this time RED seems to have finally delivered on all fronts.

Since the introduction of the Arri Alexa, DP’s have been talking [...]

In the foreground we see a young man, shelling and eating from a bag of Keenan Farms Pistachios. As he pulls the last, best nut from the bag he looks at it in anticipation. Then he hears a voice.

PIO: “Hey, my name is Pio. What’s yours?”

The guy is stunned and slowly turns the nut, examining it closely. Before long he is charmed by the pistachio’s persona, draws eyes on the shell and begins to chat with it.

LANCE: “Whoa, a talking nut?”

PIO: “You gotta’ name, Buddy?”

LANCE: “Yeah, Lance.”

PIO: “Hold off, Lance. Do you know who I am?”

LANCE (looking at bag): “Yeah, you said your name is Pio and you’re from… (reading label) a Farms in Avenal.”

PIO: “Right, Avenal, California, where I’ve spent almost my entire life… ‘til I met you.”

Noise Removing Tools

Audio problems? You won’t find any here. iZotope RX3 Advanced is by far, the most impressive audio software we’ve ever used. Just name a common sound issue and this software can fix it. Whether it’s legal forensics, an important cell phone recording or an archival piece that needs some major work, we can now fix it all.

Here is a mind shattering list of this software’s witchcraft sorcery.

– Dialog Denoiser removes unwanted noice from vocal records in real time.

– Dereverb can take a cathedral recording and turn it into a small room.

– Insight is metering and analysis for broadcast loudness standards.

– Deconstruct separates tonal and noisy audio to be adjusted separately.

– Spectral Repair let’s you visually select good or bad audio to separate or remove. Algorithms fill take harmonics, ambient noise, and pitch changes into account, removing selections without leaving gaps in sound range.

– Denoise removes unwanted background noise while analyzing changing noise profiles and fixing imperfections automatically.

– Declip rebuilds distortion caused by overload in analog or digital sound.

– Declick & Decrackle removes clicks, crackles and pops.

– Remove Hum removes…. you guessed it, removes hums. And unicorn farts.

To sum it up, we’re not sure how this magic is done, but we’re assuming enchanted leprechauns are granting software wishes somewhere between our motherboard and VRAM. OR the guys at iZotope are just super smart nerds that put Apple Genius’s to shame. Either way, we’re not complaining, we’re just glad we can fix any audio issue you could ever fathom.

Compact Seven Jib XL

Welcome to the Seven Jib Compact XL. You’re right when you assume by the title that it’s a Compact Jib, but what you probably don’t realize is that it’s a true piece of engineering greatness. This 33″ folded jib is compact, but it doesn’t sacrifice ease of assembly, function and usability. It goes together faster than just about any jib I’ve ever used, but still has the ability to be configured based on your needs and the situation. This thing has strength…it’s more solid than your mom.

If you’re in a tight place, no problem, the counterbalance arm can be as short as you want. Or if you don’t want a lot of weight on the sticks, that’s fine too, just put on the counter balance extension and cut the needed weight in half. Now let’s say you want a really low shot, just invert the ball, throw on the underslung adaptor on the tripod head and mount the camera low. Yes, it’s that simple.

This jib uses a 100mm tripod head and standard heavy-duty camera sticks. It can support up to 60 lbs of camera. It has 6.5′ of lift and has 55″ of reach. The best part is, it uses standard barbell weights for counterbalance, or an option bag that allows you to use whatever you want, whether it’s rocks, sand, or fat cats.

Now we get to the fancy stuff. We combine the Seven Jib Compact XL with our Kesler pan/tilt robotic head and we really have something to brag about. With this small of a jib, a robotic head isn’t needed, but it sure does help. Being able [...]
