MultiCam Web Remote

Here’s a nifty little page I threw together for a multi-cam shoot. I wanted to have all 3 cameras on one page instead of having them on their respective tabs but how do you do that? Simple! iFrames! I use BBEdit to change the IP addresses of the cameras that are connected to my camera […]

M1 Mini vs 2019 MBP

Finally was able to assemble enough footage to get a real world test going with the new M1 Mac Mini ($1,100) vs my almost maxed out 2019 MBP ($4,500). I still want to do this test with the 2018 Mac Mini to show the drastic change in performance, but that’s currently in a modded 12v […]

Render, Render, Render

I got into a discussion with someone on the Epic-W page on FB about if a RRX works or not with Helium footage.  Well I can say without a doubt that no it does not, at least not on a Mac (I don’t have a TB3 enclosure or a pc laptop to test it out […]

Epic-W 8K,7K,6K, all the Ks

Recently I found myself as an owner of a Epic-W (specifically #434) and I’ve been shooting a bit with it in conjunction with my Leica Summicrons, and I have to say I’m pretty excited about this camera. As a DIT I have to be camera indifferent, I can’t have a sway to one or the […]
