    www.District7media.net Explosions of red, white, and blue are seen from above the nations capitol in Washington, DC., on Independence Day, 2014. With special access from the fine folks at ABC7 (DC) (Van Applegate) District 7 Media was able to capture amazing 4k DSLR footage from the highest point in the area. This entire production was created using the Canon 1DC (4k @ 24p) and a standard 24-105mm F/4 lens. Incredibly this video was shot at ISO 16000 with barely any noticeable grain. Happy Independence day!

        • Atomos Shogun Tests: Panasonic GH4 and Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera


          from FocusPulling (.com) / Added

          Overview with commentary on the Atomos Shogun, emphasizing camera tests and comparisons, rather than a critical review. Mentioned at the beginning, you should start with Atomos' own introductory video, if you haven't already, for an explanation of the Shogun's menus and features in-depth: http://vimeo.com/114644960. Meanwhile, you can download this source file below, and stream it here or at http://youtube.com/watch?v=vtHXVKgeQp4 in full UHD-4K. The product is shipping now from the usual places, e.g., http://bhpho.to/1ikWM5x and http://focuspull.in/ATOMOS. The included battery lasts less than 30 minutes; an upgrade is essential, and this one goes for a couple of hours: http://focuspull.in/f975. These test results show only slight differences, but they are precise. For apples-to-apples comparison without deviation, there's always a compromise between getting devices into perfect docile alignment, and pushing them to their respective limits using shot diversity and severe motion. I chose the first approach here, for formal comparison, but subsequent field work will bear out the other more instinctual types of comparisons (and I'll be looking forward to seeing your samples). As explained in this video's commentary, I was satisfied by the proof here comparing 10-bit 4:2:2 via ProRes HQ (Shogun) against 8-bit 4:2:0 via .MOV (GH4 internal), ironically by way of deduction: the capture looked identical between the Shogun externally versus the BMPCC internally, both recording at 10-bit 4:2:2 via ProRes HQ. The design philosophy at Atomos is right-on: they are leaving sensor design to the big industry vets, while pushing the envelope on this recorder/monitor side where it's usually neglected in camera bodies. I look forward to mating the Shogun as often as possible with the GH4, but as I mention in the commentary, V-Log couldn't come soon enough. For now, as you'll see during each sample, I'm relying upon the FilmConvert plug-in to match footage between different camera color spaces, for common ground. (FYI, they are giving 10% off using exclusive code FOCUSPULLING at http://filmconvert.com.) And 10-bit 4:2:2 capture really shows its "colors" when you grade footage heavily, which I do. I "obey" the 180-degree shutter rule always, because a camera test is useless if it doesn't approximate field use, and good cinematographers are obligated to capture motion blur correctly and consistently (for the sake of their audiences)! Thus all of these shots are locked down to a shutter speed of 1/60, as I'm shooting at 30 frames per second. My GH4's ISO was at the minimum 200 in movie mode, though I cranked up to 600 or so after the sun went down. Rather than fiddling with the shutter speed (boo!), I compensated by opening up my aperture on bright lenses, including the lovely Leica 42.5m f/1.2, and the Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8.
