SLR Magic 10mm T2.1 on GH4 4K and 96fps 1080p mode
I’ve just received on Wednesday the upcoming SLR Magic 10mm T2.1(eq. f1.8), and their upcoming variable ND filter ! (released in october 2014)
My very first impressions : solid, heavy (420g), compact, sharp at full aperture T2.1, only 2cm minimum focus distance.
The ND filter : good first impressions, and two great options on it : lever and hard stop ! Perfect for video !

At the BIRTV show in Beijing a Chinese inventor was showing his prototype for a GoPro Hero 3+ fitted into the body of an old Sony tape based ENG TV camera. The GoPro’s lens is removed and the TV camera’s lens is utilised instead. Amazingly it actually works. The image can be displayed in the viewfinder, one of the camera’s buttons can be used to access the menu and a SD card is used for recording.
Unfortunately the picture quality of the sample we were shown leaves an awful lot to be desired.

Apologies for delay in making this. I was down with man flu and waiting until I was well enough. Thanks to all the people who nominated me. I love you all SO MUCH!
As a product photographer, I use diffusion panels almost daily. I prefer the flexability and control I get from them over softboxes, and they’re easy to store or pack flat for taking on location. Several companies have prefab “blades” intended for holding diffusion materials and fit nicely into grip heads/knuckles, but at nearly $100 a pop, buying several of them may not fit into everyone’s budget. A friend showed me an easy way of making my own for a fraction of the cost, so I put together this video to show you the process.
Note: In the video I used a portion of Rosco #3008 diffusion material from a roll I had in the studio. This material is also available in pre-cut sheets for a few dollars each if you don’t want to pony up for an entire roll.
This video explains the steps on creating a Dolly Zoom for a timelapse and incorporating a hyperlapse.
Genustech Universal Adapter Bar System - to hold the rails for the follow focus
CAMTREE Solid Gear Follow Focus - to zoom the lens out between each shot
Manfrotto 535 Tripod legs - has a half bowl mount which is important for a good hyperlapse
Sachtler FSB-8 Tripod head - has a half ball mount which is important for a good hyperlapse
LRTimelapse - For smoothing out exposure jumps as the sun went down
Adobe Bridge CS6 - For selecting photos when there was an exposure bump
Adobe Camera Raw CS6 - For giving the photos a look and matching exposure bumps
Adobe After Effects CS6 - Makes photos into a video file and smooths out shaky video.
