I just got an email from Redrock Micro regarding the wireless follow focus system. Looks like its not dead and they have also been working on a motor which will be introduced before long. They are calling it the Redrock Torque Motor and it will be a fraction of the cost or other FF motors currently available.
Just thought I would post this news item because I know none of you have heard about it non stop on your twitter feed and every site you subscribe too…
Dan the man got a chance to get some more information on the new Canon 1D X and put it through some quick HDMI and USB testing.
I really hope a lot of these features make it to the 5D and future HDSLRs.

Stuff that excited me:
- Non-Line skipping.
- Better compression options.
- Audio controls.
- Less moire and rolling shutter.
Over the past 3 years I have had the opportunity to shoot with a lot of cameras. Of them, I have found my favorite to be the old 7D. Sure it was my first video DSLR, sure 4 other Canon HDSLRs have been released since the 7D was birthed into the world. Sure, its not full frame, doesn’t have a flip out screen, yet it still takes 1st in my mind.
Allow me to expound.
