Insta360 One X Breaks the 3k 100fps barrier!

Insta360 One X

The Insta360 seems to be on a roll by delivering several products this year in quick succession. They want to own the 360-degree video market and they have no plans of letting go of that goal by making some very cool new features available to the masses.  The new Insta360 One X camera is able to stabilize the footage on the fly with incredible accuracy and steady-cam like feel without gimbals with its high-resolution capture and by using cropping along with telemetry data and a proprietary algorithm they are able to deliver rock-solid imagery in heavy motion environments.

The small camera is also able to shoot 100fps at 3k which is a first in the segment will let you crop if needed to get a better frame of the action.  There is also a very clever rubber housing that is designed to be thrown aerodynamically  “Drift Shot” while leaving the camera well protected on impact. This revolutionary technique is really something out of the box and what this camera will probably be known for. Expect to see an explosion of these shots in TV and film pretty soon as others copy the technique. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Recording Audio For Slow Motion Footage!

Smarter Every Day has posted a very nice example video of audio master Gordon McGladdery recording audio to be incorporated into slow motion footage. Since recording real slow motion sound that is usable at super high speeds is an impossibility due to the undiscernable pitch that results from it, you need to get creative with some reverb, echo, pitch, and chamber audio effects in order to get a compelling final product.  We are big fans of both their channels and make sure you check them out for supporting them.

Edgertronic SC2X Hands On Preview!

Edgertronic SC2X Hands On Preview

Just a few weeks ago we were surprised by a camera release that not only met the demanding 1080p 1000fps spec but actually nearly doubled it at 1910fps. The edgertronic SC2X is the result of the continued evolution of the popular camera line that aims to bridge the gap without compromising features, dependability or image quality.

The edgertronic SC1 and SC2, SC2+ have already proven themselves to be rock solid cameras in the fields of industrial production line monitoring, scientific labs in physics, biology and material testing. The cameras have also been used in broadcast TV, internet delivery and sporting events with amazing results. Naturally, we are expecting a lot from the SC2X and the 1080p resolution. This preview aims to answer a lot of questions and see if it’s a worthy addition to the edgertronic line. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Five Cool Slow Motion Videos On the Web!

Five Cool Slow Motion Videos

There is a plethora of new slow motion videos being produced each day and hundreds of thousands a year to maybe millions. However there is a clear distinction between the good the bad and the middle of the road efforts to capture content. There is also a clear trend to monetize slow motion on Youtube and Facebook and that makes it easy to find video trends of sports tricks, nature themes and people shooting others doing pranks or sexy poses that will allow for millions of views.

We try to find footage that is great in it’s own right and strives to avoid the monetization aspect of cookie cutter slow motion that while entertaining; does not better the crop of footage that enrich your mind and senses. → Continue Reading Full Post ←
