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.

Netflix and the END of the subscription model

When you’re wallowing in self hatred like the UK culture secretary Nadine Dorries, a good way of advocating the destruction of a national broadcaster is to suggest they follow Netflix’s business model. There is of course a reason untalented political hacks from the right-wing of tabloid journalism aren’t very popular in the creative industries. Creativity...

Help me write a movie – Part 1 – Taking inspiration from Paul Schrader / Taxi Driver

I am taking a break from reviewing cameras. I am getting out of video for now. As I am sure many of you may have guessed, I am dissatisfied with the latter world to the max. Got to call it like it is. Filmmaking and creativity is what I’m interested in. So for the time being, EOSHD is going to change focus. EOSHD will now cover movies, with the...

Steve Huff quits camera reviews for communicating with the paranormal
