The Nikon 1 J5 was no secret since some leaks have been out for some time. However it is clear that the Nikon 1 line remains focused on speed be it still images or video. However they seem to be capping the frame rates on the HD side and upping the resolution in the 1200 and 400fps ranges by a few lines. We believe the reason is product separation so that the Nikon 1 V4 will be able to have some increase in specs while having the same basic internals.
Apr 1st 2015– Unknown until now camera start-up company Black Square Imaging has released a rendered image of their current prototype camera the SFC-1M which aims to disrupt the slow motion camera market forever.
On the eve of March 31, 1999 the world was exposed to a new type of visual effect thanks to the release of a movie that changed and influenced movies for the next decade. The Bullet Time effect as it came to be known created a sense of slow motion combined with orbiting camera motion that let you for the first time move away from the constraints of a stationary or dolly only camera move.
(UPDATE March 30th 2015) The edgertronic camera on eBay finished without hitting the reserve price at $2350. Camera remains unsold for the time being! No word if it will be re-listed!

While it is only 720p it is enough to create some spectacular footage for your scientific endeavors or video/film production.→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
The new Sony FDR-X1000V Action cam has been arriving to users and there is a lot to like. For starters the image stabilization while “Digital only not optical” is excellent and something GoPro needs to include in it’s offerings. There is some stuttering in heavy motion but does work very well. Resolution will be reduced by stabilization as the image borders are cropped on the Sony FDR-X1000V.
Some samples from the Panasonic HC-vx870 and hc wx970 which are identical hardware sans the extra selfie camera on the pull out rotating screen have surfaced.
As expected the cameras perform fantastically well and are at this time still the best camcorder value for regular and slow motion video for your money. Either for slow motion or 4k, the value is hard to beat. We have selected a few samples from the net so you can check out and judge the quality for yourself:→ Continue Reading Full Post ←
