Huawei Mate 30 Pro Slow Motion The Real Story!

Huawei Mate 30 Pro Slow Motion

Huawei has just launched the Mate 30 Pro and Mate 30 Pro 5G Smartphones which sport an impressive camera module with a large sensor array that shoots at 40 Megapixels.  We had rumors sent a couple of weeks back but had our reservations due to the less than optimal slow motion in the P20 and other Huawei Smartphones.  The phone is now untouched by the competition as it can shoot a half-second at 1920fps 720p or 960fps total which translates to 32 seconds on a 30p timeline.

The headline slow motion feature of 7680fps is not real as it is derived from the 1920fps 720p half-second which the phone then uses AI selection to isolate a 0.12 seconds segment of the capture then finally interpolated by the Kirin 990 Chipset to the full 7680fps. So it does a 4x slow motion on top of it to get the great-looking result. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Sony a6300 Rolling Shutter for Slow Motion?

Sonya6300rs

There has been a lot of talk lately about the Sony a6300 horrific rolling shutter performance.  Most early adopters are crying foul at the skew and jello movement artifacts when hand holding, panning or using a long telephoto lens.  There is however a big question that has been answered concerning 1080p;  that is how bad is rolling shutter in the 1080p modes including 120fps? Sort answer is about 1/10th to 1/6th that of the 4k mode.

Mark Puckett of the Photo /Video Show set out to find out about the rolling shutter in the Sony a6300 first hand using panning motion while testing the different modes in the camera including 4k 24p, 30p nad 1080p 120fps and 60fps. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Sony a6300 delivers 4k Plus 120fps FHD Slowmo!

Sonya6300

The Sony a6000 was a good middle of the line performer with pretty competitive performance. The new a6300 is a refined version with some pretty robust improvements in the video area.

For starters the 4k 30p, 24p, 25p video internal mode records in the robust XAVC-S video format at up to 100Mbps which is comparable to what the Panasonic GH4 and a7s II cameras record 4k into.  It also has S-Log3 Gamma for a flat profile for creative grading and LUT application for editors and colorists.   If you were looking for a Sony 4k alternative in an S35 crop sensor then this is the camera for you.   Furthermore the 4k mode is using the entire S35 frame and correctly down-sampling the image for extremely crisp looking 4k video from a 6k original sensor source. → Continue Reading Full Post ←
