Panasonic's Lumix GH4 Packs 4K Video Into A Sweet Mirrorless Shooter

Accessible 4K video shooting is still in its infancy, but it was only a matter of time before it started showing up in consumer cameras. The Panasonic GH line’s history of robust video capability makes it a natural fit for 4K, and the new Lumix GH4 squeezes as much as it can into a familiar frame.


​Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera Review: Small, Fussy, Beautiful

The announcement of Blackmagic’s $US3000 RAW-shooting Cinema Camera in 2012 caused such a stir that not many could have anticipated a followup model, so soon, that was a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the size. The Pocket Cinema Camera continues forging the path of the upstart high-end video camera.


Create Interactive 360° Panoramic Video With Ease

Have you ever watched a video and wanted so badly to view the scene from a different perspective? Maybe you wanted to see what was happening behind the person filming.

As TV manufacturers and broadcasters gear up to deliver 4K video to people’s living rooms, there still aren’t many options for regular folk who want to shoot super high resolution footage of their own. Sony wants to lead that charge with a new camcorder that will make 4K simple, manageable, and most of all (relatively) affordable. With, of course, some compromises.


Blackmagic Cinema Camera Review: Sacrifices For Superior Shots

The Blackmagic Cinema Camera is unlike any video camera you have ever seen. When it was announced in April of last year, slackjawed videographers marvelled at this little camera, made by a little software company, that shoots RAW files at 2.5k resolution for only $3245 in Australia. It was the kind of product people expected would be filed under either blundered experiment, or the start of something big. Turns out it’s a little of both.


Flytecam Is A Streamlined GoPro Challenger

Whether you need another action option or not, Flytecam is a 1080p POV video camera that’s looking to compete. It has specs that land it between GoPro’s lowest and middle tier offerings, but it’s supposed to be cheaper and doesn’t require waterproof or shock resistant cases.


GoPro Software Update Hands-On: Easier Sharing, Awesomer Videos

GoPro, the Q-tips of action cameras, recognised a problem. People are shooting lots of footage with their cameras, but then letting it languish away on a dusty old hard drive, unseen and unedited. The California company is hoping to help correct that with a new mobile apps and desktop editing software.


What Would You Do Inside A Slow-Motion Video Booth?

Here’s a fun party idea: get a bunch of people together with 11 kegs and one slow-motion video booth and see what happens. That’s pretty much what these guys did. They hooked up a Phantom Miro camera and let people go nuts with whatever they wanted to do at 1500FPS.
