The online cinematography event Big League CineSummit just went live today! The Big League CineSummit is a free event for those that register now and it features 9 awesome cinematographers who will dive deep into specific aspects of cinematography. I’m really excited to learn some new stuff myself. This year’s speakers range from the industries best that work on Hollywood features to DP’s that shoot Top Brand Commercials. Check out this video to see what these speakers have done:

If you’re like me, you’re seriously looking into upgrading to a 4K workflow. One big part of this is storage and speed. And while there are a ton of storage solutions out there, G-Technology has just announced 2 new hard drive enclosures with 4K content creators in mind, the G-SPEED Studio and the G-RAID Studio. Pricing ranges from $649 for a 4TB model to $3,599 for the 24TB model. Now, before I get comments with people complaining about the price, let me tell you why I think these are worth it:
I had not heard much about Libec gear until close to NAB. I’m very interested in seeing their gear here at the show. One of their new offerings is the Libec ALLEX System. This is a Tripod/Head/Slider kit that makes using a tripod and slider together or separately a breeze. Also take note of how the camera is removed from the tripod. Thats HOT! The ALLEX System will be available in Augest of this year. Check out the video and details below.
I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the GH4 when it is available. In the meantime, join me in being jealous of The Camera Store and their unit.
GH4 Video Look
This just might be the camera that sways me away from the C100. I won’t know until I actually get to use the camera and get some footage. I was talking with Tim Whalen (a filmmaker here in Chicago) and he made a comment about the GH4 looking video and I think he makes a good point. The footage in this review definitely isn’t the most beautiful thing I’ve seen from a camera, although some of that is because of the lighting in my opinion. We shall see.
Remember that Supamods review we did a while back? Well they have a stabilizer unit that looks pretty promising and it is on sale at the moment. Having seen how good their gear is, I would suspect this unit is very well made. Hard to believe it comes in at $750!
Check the Supamods X4 Flight System out here.
I am VERY interested in this camera so all this information was gold. Watch the video and let me know what you think about this camera. I personally might consider replacing my Canon bodies with Panasonic GH4′s depending on a few details. Looking forward to reviewing the camera when it comes out.
