Hi this is Jay P Morgan and today on The Slanted Lens we’re reviewing a new product from Datacolor. It’s called the Spyder5PRO. The Spyder5PRO is a monitor color calibrating software. It’s made so you can calibrate your monitor to help you get a consistent image, to know if your images are exposed correctly, […]
Hi, this is Jay P. Morgan. Today on The Slanted Lens we’re looking at combining three things: two axis motion, time-lapse, and live action footage to give us a unique shot. We’re shooting on the 3rd Street bridge in Los Angeles, using our Genie, Genie Mini and Magic Carpet from Syrp. This is […]
Trends from the Trenches for the month of September. We talk about video and still photography. There are some very important announcements.
In our News and Reviews we compare the Canon 5DS R to the new Sony a7RII and look at how they compare for shooting stills (40 mega pixel vs 50 mega pixel). We have a sneak peak at the Dynalite Baja B6, a 600 watt second lithium battery,50% more powerful and battery portable. We look at Ninja Assassin from Atomos,a great HD recorder that is light and affordable.
Reflectors are a great entry point into the world of lighting so today on The Slanted Lens, I am going to show you how to make one of your own. Let’s get started! Bead foam reflectors have been used on photography and movie sets for years because they are cheap to make, easy to use […]
Atomos has introduced a new 4K Recorder that will open the door wide for 4K. The Shogun is a great recording device but expensive. The new Ninja Assassin by Atomos has stripped away the things that you can do without, like SDI recording, and left you with a great 7 inch monitor that will record 4K to the A7s and the Panasonic GH4. I have heard it’s under 1500 dollars.
Syrp is just about to release the Genie Mini as an addition to it’s family of motion control devices but I got my hands on one early to test it out and share with all of you. I have had the opportunity to use the Mini by itself and with the full-size Genie for a dozen or more time lapse photography shoots in the past few weeks and I was really impressed with the outcome.
Today on the Slanted Lens we’re back out at the SKB Factory shooting an industrial portrait. It’s one of the assignments that can go really easy or really hard. So let’s get started and see what we can do. When I say industrial portrait, it’s not a lifestyle portrait. It’s not a documentary style portrait. […]
Today on the Slanted Lens, we’re going to show how to get simple headshots with just one hour, one light, and one reflector. So here we are. We’re heading off to a friend of mine, Tanya’s. She needs a headshot for her real estate business. She’s been asking me for a while to do this […]
This month’s Trends from the Trenches comes a week early because Lars is going to Salt Lake to shoot a movie. But don’t worry there’s still plenty to talk about! Panasonic is coming out with 3 new cameras one of which is a DVX200 with 4K. There’s a new site-http://canibringmyselfiestick.com/-that tells you where you can […]
Today on the Slanted Lens, we’re going to review the new tripod by Vanguard. It’s a 265CB VEO tripod. It’s a travel tripod and it’s a really great product. So let’s take a look at some of the features. The height is 15.38 inches when it’s folded up. That makes this a really easy tripod […]
