My sister Zara Reid is in end-of-life care for cancer

When I went to see Panasonic in London earlier this year, things were on the up after a long pandemic. I remember saying to folks – wouldn’t it be great if after the last few years the drama could began to settle down. In August my sister was diagnosed with an aggressive form of BRAF-mutation colon cancer. It has spread to her liver. Help support EOSHD...

One step closer to WWIII – Throwback to my Taiwan footage and experience living there

This blog began 12 years ago in Taiwan, 2010. I was living there and had just got the Panasonic GH1 from the local family run dealer on a street I called “Camera Avenue” because it had about 40 camera stores all independently run and all in one place in downtown Taipei. Learning about the fascinating history of the island from my girlfriend and her...

Smartphones and their growing threat to mirrorless cameras – 2022 edition

But now there is a new threat to the high end camera market and this time not from itself. Sensors in smartphones are getting larger....

2 years later – Canon quietly removes fake overheating limits of EOS R5 in firmware update

First there was Magic Lantern. Then the Magic Screw. Now there is a Magic Official Firmware Update. Behold, the ‘overheating’ on the EOS R5 is finally fixed 2 years after release. Unluckily for those who paid full price for the camera during the past 2 years, they haven’t been fully able to use the advertised capabilities of the hardware they paid $4K...

Thoughts on the impressive Fuji X-H2S

Most mirrorless cameras aimed at filmmakers are so much alike these days, so does the X-H2S stand out? The X-H2S assumes flagship status over the X-T4 for both stills and video users. It remains to be seen whether there will be an 8K resolution X-H2R later, for the high resolution stills and video crowd. I’d love to see progress with the long list...

Surprise, surprise! RED files lawsuit vs Nikon over internal RAW recording on Z9

As has been the case in the past, with everybody (apart seemingly from Canon) RED are flexing their claim to compressed RAW again. The target this time is Nikon. With the latest firmware update, the Z9 bravely has not one but two internal RAW codecs. N-RAW and now ProRes-RAW. It might be unlikely Nikon will be able to continue to offer the internal...

Here it is. The new ALEXA 35. The replacement for the decade old original film industry work horse, ARRI ALEXA.
