Our friend Julien Jarry joins us on this episode to discuss production audio, more specifically at the one-man-band level. We’re also finally sharing our experience with the Sennheiser marketing campaign that we were reluctantly chosen for.
Check out the Sennheiser campaign that we were able to stand in front of a camera for. Sennheiser flew us out to NY to create these awesome campaign videos with the help of Ticking Clock Productions and Human Being Media.
Our guy Joshua Martin joins us on this episode to discuss everything that we loved about this year’s IBC show. Exciting new releases and unexpected announcements is pretty much the sum of this entire episode. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there’s never been a better time to be a video creator.
The NEW Panasonic S1H has been released and it’s a beauty. I am breaking down all the new features on this episode. Breaking down all the features, recording formats, physical differences, and my overall opinion on this epic camera.
Check down below for further information and review videos with sample footage that was put together by other awesome content creators. Feel free put your comments on this camera, or this overall episode in the comment section below.
The NEW Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6K has been announced and it’s creating quite the buzz. This new release comes to a surprise for most as the Pocket 4K was only announced a little over a year ago and has been backordered for many people. Our friend Joshua Martin joins us on this episode to discuss this new Pocket Cinema Camera 6K. Joshua has experience with the Pocket Cinema Camera 4K and is going to sharing what new improvements will be offered in this new release.

Making business investments is always daunting. specially when you’re relatively new to the industry and don’t know exactly where to begin. Here are all of my recommended purchases in order of importance.
I am humbly joined by gear guru Caleb Pike, host and creator of the DSLR Video Shooter YouTube channel. We continue last weeks conversation from episode 124 on this year’s NAB show. We’re pointing out what got us the most excited.
My friends Matt “Who Is Matt” Johnson, and Peter Fowler join me on this episode for a conversation of our favorite gear that we noticed at this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. It was awesome getting to meet them both in person for the first time. This is now the second year that I get to enjoy the NAB Show and it seems like it just gets better. Meeting all my favorite influencers in one place. By the way, they’ve all agreed to come on the show for a conversation. Be on the lookout for that 🙂 . Another benefit of attending the NAB show is to check out the awesome new equipment that all the companies are releasing. This is a secondary priority for me at this point. If it wasn’t for the networking, I don’t know that the gear releases alone are enough to get me out there for a few days. Especially considering that fact that it’s about a 5 hour flight each way from Miami.
Atomos has been busy. Who can blame them? With NAB just under a week away, it’s no surprise to see the release of a few new products in their, already brilliant, line of monitoring/recording devices. Just a year ago Atomos announced their new ProRES RAW codec. An announcement that essentially stole the show at last year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas. If I remember correctly, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K was the only other product that really had people talking. Now it looks like both companies are at it again. Blackmagic Design releasing their Ursa Mini 4.6K Pro G2 just a few weeks ago. In recent weeks Atomos has also been announcing several new products to their lineup that already have people excited.
Let’s begin with the Atomos Shinobi monitor. A 5.2”
monitor-only device that packs a punch. At only $399, this monitor is already
making big waves. With a touchscreen display that is 1000nits bright and has a
resolution of 1920×1080. AtomHDR mode that has up to 10 stops of Dynamic Range.
Supports a variety of LOG formats. The Shinobi is also powered via a single
L-Series battery, in addition to AC power of course. This HDMI monitor is
actually Atomos’ first monitor-only device in their lineup. As a lover of
external monitors for my cameras, I had the same question as other filmmakers;
Will they be releasing an SDI version of this monitor? I’ll settle for some
sort of SDI adaptor. Thankfully, Atomos heard our questions and gave us
answers. That’s right, plural.
Enter the Shinobi SDI. Take everything we already know about
the lovely and affordable Shinobi HDMI monitor and add some SDI jacks. Okay so
it’s not exactly the same. The price tag on this one is $499. But seriously,
for just $100 extra, you can have the security of SDI inputs that most
professionals know and love. By the way, you will still have the option of
having the 4K HDMI inputs on this monitor as well.
“But Ariel, what if I want to record on my small 5” monitor via SDI jacks. The Ninja-V that was released last year does not have the capabilities of doing this.” You would be right. However, Atomos has just announced their new AtomX SDI Module for the Ninja-V. Capable of receiving a professional 4K SDI signal. Atomos has answered both previous questions with a big fat “YES”. I would say the ONLY complaint I have about this new AtomX SDI Module is that the Ninja-V does not record RAW. I know, I feel like a brat with that complaint seeing how Atomos has continued to give us the tools to continue making our art at amazingly affordable prices.
With all these new products, you would think that Atomos
will now sit back and watch as many NAB Show goers gather around their booth.
But that’s not the case. Atomos had just one more major announcement and
release for this year’s NAB Show.
Today, Atomos has announced their new Atomos Shogun 7. An upgrade to the, already popular, Shogun Inferno. I myself am an owner of the Shogun Inferno. I absolutely love my Inferno as it gives me amazing monitoring and recoding capabilities. Although the recording capabilities are about the same on both monitors, the real upgrade is in the display. The Shogun 7 has improved HDR capabilities. Going by the name of “HDR Pro”. HDR has been increasingly popular for the past several years. Atomos was among the first to begin introducing this technology in their monitors/recorders. HDR Pro is now a major improvement to the already-popular HDR tech. Atomos is claiming to have a 1,000,000,000:1 Contrast ration with Zone Backlight. That is a lot of zeros! The new Shogun 7 also has the capabilities of LIVE switching. You can record and switch between four 1080p signals at up to 60fps. That is quite beautiful! Atomos continuing to push the limits of what a simple external monitor/recorder can do.
I will not be surprised if Atomos steals the show again at
this year’s NAB Show. As a filmmaker, I really do appreciate companies that
truly listen to their customers and provide easy solutions at affordable
prices. That being said, I cannot wait to see what other companies have up
their sleeves at this year’s NAB Show.
Ever since I got my GH5, I’ve been loving all over it. Maybe a little too much. Many have pointed that fact to me. I want this episode to balance out my praise of this camera. Of course there are issues to this camera, just like every other camera in the market. Here are a list of my issues with the Panasonic GH5.
