Jay P and Lars are really getting in the Halloween spirit. Today on Trends from the Trenches for October, Red’s new camera is no longer “under wraps”. Jay P and Lars discuss the new, lightweight Red Raven 4k digital camera (1:19), with its Dragon Sensor and Weapon form factor. You’ll also find out why Jay P is worried about the Adobe takeover of Fotolia, and what it might mean for those with Getty stock images (4:03). The guys discuss the new Panasonic GH4 with V-Log profile to increase dynamic range (7:00), but Lars isn’t completely happy about the upgrade. Is he justified or just the kind of guy that’s never satisfied? Watch and weigh-in in the comments. Jay P. and Lars answer the time-old question: do you need to travel to be a successful photographer (9:21)? They also discuss GoPro’s new camera: the Hero Plus 1080p with WiFi and Bluetooth (11:52), the Sony A7S Mark II video minded low light capability with 120 frames at 1080p (12:43), and compare the Sony A7S2 and the Sony A7R2 (14:02). Plus, if you’ve ever wondered how much Chili’s spent to make their burgers look better on Instagram, you’ve come to the right place (15:59). Lars also explains how to actually shoot with 4k video on the new iPhone 6s (16:55).
