Action Cams


Action Cams
No doubt there were a lot of so called "Action Cams" in Chrissy stockings this year or under the tree. These are bound to be one of the hottest items around, as they do a far better job than the humble smartphone for taking video of such pastimes as skateboarding, skiing, mountain bike riding, surfing, fishing or any of a few hundred other fun things. But while in general action cams are easy to use, to get the very best footage - like the really good stuff you see on YouTube, Facebook and Vimeo etc - there are some things you can do to improve your shooting out of sight!

Content Insider #500 - Tomorrow's Entertainment
Every year folks peek behind the curtain and tell you what stuff is going to take place next year and what technologies/products are going to succeed...and fail. Jeezz might as well skip the year.

That way if you make money in the industry you can speed up or adjust your course to be ready to succeed in a big way. If you're just an entertainment consumer then you can prepare yourself for how good things are going to be. If I'm a little wrong come back in 25 years and I'll graciously accept your gottcha comment. If you ignore my crystal ball projections do it at your own peril! Read More

Mio Garden - A Meditation on VR
Mio Garden - A Meditation on VR
Nice Shoes Creative Studio recently entered the exciting world of Virtual Reality, debuting our immersive and interactive meditative experience "Mio Garden." Creating the Mio Garden was a very personal journey for me. I was coming from a chaotic work environment and a stressful time in my life, so when Harry Dorrington and Angela Bowen asked me to join Nice Shoes Creative Studio to build a virtual reality Zen garden I jumped right in. We set out to create a relaxing experience focusing on beauty and interactions that put the user in a tranquil state of mind. This is just what I needed at that moment, a release from the overwhelming, fast-paced world. Everyone else tends to need a break like that too, and I thought it could be achieved through interactive meditation. Read More

Content Insider #496 - VR Progress
VR film work - educational, documentary, entertainment and even marketing - has grown faster than the pioneers expected and it's only getting better and more exciting. All of the tools are getting better, faster, less expensive faster than industry forecasters predicted. Try even the basic (cheap) tools and you'll understand why once you watch it you want more. The good shooters and producers are delivering for the immersion hungry audience and learning that while it's great it doesn't meet everyone's needs the same way. The VR filmmakers are more than just creative in what they deliver, they're creative in how they get from concept to something you can don an HMD and enjoy. They're doing a lot of work-around activity to satisfy an increasingly sophisticated audience. Read More

A Close Look at The Panasonic AG-UX90 Camera
A Close Look at The Panasonic AG-UX90 Camera
For the last couple of weeks I have had a chance to test the new AG-UX90 camera from Panasonic. The lightweight camera is great for the photog on the go or for those doing documentary work. Should you grab this camera? I run down the great, and not so great features of the camera, in this review. The camera captures images on a 1-inch CMOS sensor, which ends up giving the user a better depth of field than other cameras you'll find in this price range. It isn't a full frame sensor, but then again, this camera isn't designed for DSLR fans, or those planning on shooting a feature film. Read More
