DJI Osmo Camera Shoots Stabilized 4K Video, No Drone Required

DJI Osmo Stabilized 4k Video Camera

When you hear the name DJI, you probably immediately think of unmanned, remote-controlled aircrafts (or drones, if you prefer), but today they have announced the Osmo camera, which is meant to be used on a handheld stabilizer for shooting on the ground.

The Osmo is part of a system, so if you already have a DJI ZenMuse camera, it’s compatible with the new stabilizer. However, it comes as part of a package with a 4K camera with a 1/2.3” sensor and a 94-degree field of view. It also shoots 12-megapixel still images.

DJI Osmo Stabilized 4k Video Camera

The controls are built into the handle of the device so you can manipulate them on the fly. The Osmo has a built-in stereo microphone as well as a 3.5mm audio jack for an external microphone. There’s also an optional smartphone clip for watching footage in real time.

For roughly twice the price, you can get a DJI Ronin stabilization system, which adapts to more robust camera systems like DSLRs. Still, for $649, the Osmo competes with consumer grade video cameras, and while it lacks optical zoom many shooters look for, the stabilization and the unique form factor will definitely have some appeal.

This Is How You Make a “Dirt Blizzard” For a Mountain Bike Movie

The folks at Anthill Films are crazy in the best possible way. We’ve covered some of their mountain bike movie antics before, but creating a full on blizzard of dirt at the Whistler Mountain Bike Park might be one of the coolest things I have seen in quite some time.

The scene was inspired by a simple quote from one of Anthill’s previous movies about how one rider wished it would snow dirt and it could be shaped like snow. From there, the whole thing, well, snowballed into a crazy cinematic mountain bike riding scene.

In order to pull it off, they used pete moss as fake snow. They distributed by modifying leaf blowers to suck up the course moss particles and blast them all over the trails.

The resulting footage is (in my biased, mountain-bike-loving opinion) ridiculously awesome. Seeing some of the best riders in the world blasting through freshly fallen dirt is just endlessly entertaining. But, it also appeals to the photographer in me. These folks had an awesome idea for making interesting images and they did what they needed to in order to make it happen.

So, next time you have an insane idea for a photo or video shoot, put some thought into what it might take to actually make it happen. Sure, we all can’t get our hands on thousands of dollars worth of modified snow blowers and magical dirt snow, but with some creativity, you might be surprised what you can create.


New Gear: GoPro Hero+ Action Camera Brings Wifi and 60 FPS to the Entry Level

If you’re looking at buying a GoPro camera going into the holiday seasons, it looks like you’re going to have plenty of options to choose from. Today, GoPro is announcing their entry-level Hero+ camera, which checks in at $200, but brings with it added Wifi and 1080p footage capture at 60 fps.

The camera is similar in many ways to the (as you might expect) to the GoPro Hero+ LCD that was debuted a few months ago. The LCD brings a retail price of $300, but the addition of Wifi and Bluetooth to the Hero+ means that you can use the app to set up and control the camera, which makes the LCD less of a necessity.

Beyond that, it does all the GoPro stuff you expect a GoPro camera to do. It shoots 8-megapixel photos, produces time lapse videos with intervals from .5 to 60 seconds, and shoots five image bursts over the course of a second.

The camera is built directly into the waterproof housing, which is a bit different than the higher-end GoPro cameras, but it’s waterproof to 131 feet.

It will be up for sale in early October with the previously-mentioned price of $200. And while those upgrades may not sound all that ground-breaking, the wireless actually fundamentally changes the way the camera can be used, so that’s a pretty big deal.

In other GoPro news, they’re dropping the price of the cube-shaped Hero Session down to $300 from $400, which is just fine by me.

This Slow-Motion, Bullet Time Video of Fire Breathers Is Totally Mesmerizing

Bullet time videos have turned into a bit of an arms race, with shooters using more and more gear to try and get even more over-the-top footage. Mitch Martinez calls his creations Time Slices and the latest one of some fire breathers is truly fascinating.

In order to capture the footage, he used an array of Canon DSLRs in concert with Panasonic GH4 cameras and even RED's Epic camera, which shoots up to 120 fps. The effect can make just about anything look cool, but in the hands of a seasoned (and talented) director of photography like Martinez, it's capable of some truly amazing things.

In the end, the whole thing is a bit of overkill, but that’s what makes it so fun. Watch it at maximum resolution on a nice screen and you’ll likely be glad they went so far over the top with it.


New Gear: Sony A7S II Gets 5-Way Image Stabilization, Internal 4K Video Recording

Sony A7S II full-frame camera with 4K Video

Sometimes, when a camera company introduces a new system, you have to wonder if they're going to give it the support it really needs to thrive. Sony, however, seems dead set on supporting their full-frame A-series cameras with a string of aggressive updates that continues today with the announcement of the A7S II.

The A7S II maintains some of the crucial pieces of the original version, using a 12.2-megapixel resolution that enables the insanely-high 400,000+ ISO performance. But, there have been some considerable upgrades. One big move is the addition of the 5-way internal image stabilization system like the one found in the A7 II.

Another big step up for the A7S II is the fact that it can now record 4K video straight to a memory card. The original A7S requires a separate video recorder to deal with all of that data that gets churned out when capturing super high-res video. Beyond that, it has full-pixel readout rather than relying on pixel binning, which means that it's capturing full data on each frame. That's a very notable difference if you're at all interested in pulling stills from 4K video to use as photos. Beyond 4K, it also does 120 fps at 100 Mbps at 1080p, which makes for some seriously high-quality slow-mo.


The upgraded AF system has 169 AF points, which promises better tracking and faster overall performance, even in low-light, which is a selling point for the A7S II in the first place. Even the electronic viewfinder has been revamped, givin git a higher magnification of .78x, so it too is easier to use in the dark.

All in all, the A7S II has received a lot of new features, making it a very worthy successor to the already-popular A7S, at least on paper. Right now, it's only officially announced in Europe, where it will carry a price of 3,400 Euro. We have no info about a US release just yet, but I have to imagine it's coming.


Canon’s 250-Megapixel APS-H Sensor Shoots 5 FPS at 30x 4K Resolution

Canon 250-megapixel Sensor

The Canon Expo is about to start here in New York, which means Canon is ready to show off some of their new technologies, including their 4,000,000 ISO camera. Today, Canon Japan announced the development of a 250-megapixel sensor for shooting low-frame-rate video.

The sensor is an APS-H CMOS, a size which Canon phased out of their EOS line after the Canon 1D Mark IV. It has a 1.3x crop factor when compared to a full-frame sensor and can shoot five frames per second at 250-megapixels. That’s not a typical video framerate, but it is usable for things like industrial and research applications.

Despite fitting all those pixels onto a sensor that’s even smaller than a full-frame chip, Canon claims that it’s still able to achieve impressive levels of low-light performance. Not only is it high-megapixel, but it also operates at a rather absurd speed, which is essential because of the sheer volume of data we're talking about here, which can be a bottleneck for many camera systems.

It’s important to note that this isn’t a commercial product at this time and no one is expecting consumers to buy it, so all of the dismissive comments people will inevitably make are shortsighted. If this pixel miniaturization process is as effective as they claim, it could be a very interesting technology when it does come into the consumer realm.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at How Impossible Project’s Instant Film Is Made

The folks over at High Snobiety recent had a chance to check out The Impossible Project's headquarters and made a pretty interesting video about the behind the scenes process of making Impossible’s Instant Film packs.

Headquartered in Enschede in the Netherlands, Impossible Project got its start after the final operating Polaroid film factory closed its doors in 2008. The company bought the old factory and since then have been working to revive photographer’s love of analog by bringing back old instant film-stocks and sizes and inventing new ways to play with Polaroid.

Watch the video above to learn a little bit more about the chemical complexity of how these film packs are made.


Eagle Takes Down Camera Drone Mid-Flight

Drones are capable of capturing some truly amazing photos and footage, but not everyone is a fan. Apparently that disdain also exists outside of the human race. This eagle does not seem willing to share the sky with any new technology, and is seen in the video sending that drone back to where it came from.

Drones have been a controversial talking point lately, and have been the cause of everything from neighborhood rivalries to security scandals.

While you definitely have to be responsible and vigilant about where you fly your drone, when done right it can produce some pretty explosive results, or change the way you photograph altogether.


Graava Is an Action Camera That Edits Its Own Footage

Graava Action Camera

For many photographers, actually shooting good video is pretty intuitive. After all, we’re often using very similar cameras for both pursuits these days. When it comes to editing, however, it’s a whole different world. Grave is an action camera that claims it can edit the footage you shoot with it all on its own.

The camera itself actually looks a lot like a little LaCie hard drive with a lens on it. You can secure it anywhere you would typically put an action camera and then capture as much footage as you can. Then, you go through the Graava app and tell it how long you want your edited video to be, and it does its thing. It even adds music that’s synced to the action.

Graava Action Camera Video Editing Apps

Grave decides what parts it should be including in the edit using a variety of indicators. The camera itself has sensors built into it to detect acceleration and movement and it assumes if you start moving fast, something interesting is happening. You can also hook it up to an external heart rate monitor so it will be able to see when your heart is beating hard. That’s also a good indicator that something exciting is happening. That's actually a concept Nikon was using for their automated dog camera, Heartography.

I have a couple of GoPro cameras and I think they’re fantastic, but the editing of the footage is always the toughest part. Even though there’s no way the automatic edits will be nowhere near the quality you’d get form a real professional, it could be good enough if you’re just trying to document a day at the beach or something along those lines.

Of course, it’s not just automatic editing that’s available, so if you want to take a more traditional path when it comes to cutting up your footage, you can, of course, do that as well.

Right now you can still pre-order the Graava for $249. That makes it $150 cheaper than the expected launch price of $400.

Gnarbox Backs Up Photos and Videos On the Fly, Lets You Edit Wirelessly With Your Phone

Gnarbox photo and video backup

It’s great that camera companies have been integrating Wifi into their newest models so they play nice with smartphones, but proprietary apps and quirky operation sometimes hinder their usefulness. Gnarbox, however, wants to act as a conduit between the camera and the smartphone, offering a rugged backup solution in addition to a full suite of editing and sharing tools.

The Gnarbox is actually a powerful little computer with a quad-core CPU and an eight-core GPU packed into a military-grade rugged case. It has 128 GB of built-in solid-state storage to which you can dump files from your DSLR or GoPro (or whatever camera, really). It then connects wirelessly to a smartphone where you can edit photos and videos, including RAW photos and 4K video. You can then share directly from the app.

The whole box is less than an inch thick, 2.5-inches wide, and 4-inches long. In terms of connections, it has slots for both SD and MicroSD, as well as a USB 3 port for connecting cameras that rely on CF cards. There’s an internal battery that lasts six-to-eight hours on a full charge.

While there are other backup solutions out there, this one is very small, waterproof, shock proof, and seems to have a very slick interface.

The Kickstarter is already well over its funding goal and you can still pre-order one for $149, which seems like a very reasonable price for such a capable little device.

It’s clearly being marketed to sports shooters of the action variety, but I could see this being super handy in a wedding photography or even a commercial photography situation. I’m looking forward to giving it a try in the field. It looks extremely promising.


A Behind The Scenes Look At The Manufacturing Of The Fujifilm X-T10

This video shows the manufacturing process of the Fujifilm X-T10 from beginning to end, and it is completely captivating. The production in the factory is surprisingly hands-on, and the steps towards completing each camera are really quite beautiful to watch.

Check out the video and let us know if you think it is as hypnotizing as we do. It is a great reminder that each camera really is an amazing piece of machinery.


My Favorite Old Camera: Geoffrey Berliner’s Graflex Stereoscopic Graphic

Asking Geoffrey Berliner to pick a favorite piece of old camera gear is a bit like asking a mother to pick her favorite child. As the Executive Director of New York City’s Penumbra Foundation, Berliner has a huge stash of antique camera equipment that he regularly uses in the Penumbra Tintype Studio.

But his Graflex Stereoscopic Graphic is an old standby in the studio. For a number of years Berliner shot film with the Graflex, but when Penumbra devolved their Tintype studio he thought it would be a fun addition. Berliner actually modified the camera for use in the studio by attaching a matched stereo pair of Petzval portrait lenses to the front and swapping the traditional 5x7 film holder for one that can accommodate the wet plates used to make tintypes. Watch the video below to find out more about Berliner’s love for this piece of early 20th century gear.


New Gear: GoPro Hero4 Session Is Much Smaller, Still Tough

GoPro Hero4 Session Action Camera

Just a few weeks ago, GoPro announced their new camera with a built-in LCD screen. Today, however, they’re unveiling something a little more radical. The GoPro Hero4 Session switches up the iconic, boxy GoPro form factor and crams all those camera guts into a body that’s very reminiscent of the tiny Polaroid Cube.

The camera itself is actually 50% smaller and 40% lighter than the regular GoPro Hero4 camera. The body is a small cube that basically seems to be about the same size as the lens frame, on the Hero4, only deeper. There’s a small screen on the top of the camera, which displays things like shooting mode, battery power, and remaining storage.

GoPro Hero4 Session Action Camera

While some GoPros are getting LCD screens, this one is actually headed in the other direction. In order to keep the size as small as possible, there are only two buttons on the camera. One starts and stops recording, while the other small button turns the wireless on and off. That means you’ll have to change modes and operate the menus by syncing up the camera with a smartphone and the official GoPro app.

In terms of photographic firepower, the video resolution maxes out at 1440p at 30 fps, 1080p at 60 fps, and 720p in 2x slow motion. So, if you were hoping for the 4K capabilities of the bigger GoPro cameras, you’re out of luck. But, that’s not really the point of this thing. It also takes 8 megapixel stills, and has the common GoPro functions like time-lapse.

There are actually two microphones built into the camera, one on the front and one on the back, which they say helps alleviate the issue of crummy audio as the camera comes out of the water. It actually switches back and forth to help eliminate things like wind noise.

GoPro Hero4 Session Action Camera

The camera itself is waterproof without an extra case, so mounting it involves using a rig that’s much like the Frame mounts offered for the current GoPro cameras.

The GoPro Hero4 Session costs $399, which makes it the same price as the Hero4 Silver edition. The silver gives you more video and photo power, as well as a built-in screen, but the form factor really is a big deal here, so it’s up to you which is more important.
