Yesterday, Canon released a new firmware for the C100 and C300 that allows you to use ridiculously high ISO numbers, like 80,000. We were intrigued and wanted to know two things 1) How bad is the digital noise at ISO 80,000, and 2) Does the new firmware improve lower ISO settings (i.e. Does ISO 850 have less digital noise on the new firmware vs the old)? We put a quick video together to get some answers.
Videos of the DJI Phantom “GoPro” helicopter have been flooding the internet for the past several months. This small, inexpensive copter gave low-budget shooters and hobbyists the ability capture unique, sweeping arial shots. This month, a new DJI Phantom has been released with the some new features, including a built-in camera.
RODE Microphones has just added an awesome feature to their site called the RODE Soundbooth. Now no matter where you are you can check out all of RODE’S microphones and compare the audio and quality side-by-side.
