    How many times have you gotten to a point--at the beginning, middle, or end of a project--where just just have to ask yourself: where the heck are we, and how did we get here?

    I've been delving into HDR video using my spiffy new FSI XM-310K monitor. A recent firmware update had really enhanced the performance of Peak playback mode.

    There's a data-sheet you can download that describes frame rates of 6, 15, 30, and 60 fps at different resolutions. It appears to generate RGB data, IR reflectence/depth data (albeit only 8bpp), and...

    At 4:20 (or so) he asks "why does Hollywood make moonlight blue? It's gray. It's a reflected light." True, but...have you ever noticed the color of daylight? Dimmed down, and compared to...

    If you are looking for new ways to increase your levels of depression, look at your R3D media files using only the blue channel for a monochrome result. It's mortifying.

    It has been known for over 100 years that one can use color filters when shooting black and white stock to affect the b&w grade creatively. Of course you only get one shot, but if you know what you...

    If KOMODO is all about horsepower-to-weight (and size) ration, I'd pick a lens that further maximizes it's capabilities while minimizing size and weight. Likely Canon RF 15-30 (first choice) or...

    Holy crow! A 300m T2 Cooke s7/i would be HUGE! I will note for the record that many vendors get wrong the specs of the S4/i 300mm (listing it on their website as T2 instead of T2.8) and at least...

    My experience with audio and RED is that everything is fine and dandy until it enters the electrical envelope of the camera. Then it's bad news thereafter. If KOMODO fixes this, or DSMC3, I'm all...
