There isn't really any magic bullet in high speed photography. High speed photography is difficult because of the amount of data involved and the sensitivity necessary for the sensor. Both of these factors combine to drive up the cost of all portions of the camera to do it well. You can either sacrifice quality (which the iPhone does) or you can sacrifice ...

You may want to look into Sony's camcorder line (even legacy; like the NX5U). The NX5U and I think even the FX1000 (which is an HDV Tape Format and can be had used on a place like ebay for under $1000) could do bursts of full 1080p 240+ for a "limited time". If I remember correctly the FX1000 by sony could do 240 frames at for 10 seconds. It would buffer ...

For half the price and DSLRs only, the Ronin M probably makes more sense. The Helix Jr. makes sense for more. It can hold up to 12 lb of stuff vs the M's 8 lb (which is kind of crazy, considering that it's even lighter), and the fact that it's naturally at heart-ish level as opposed to belt level means a lot for good framing and the ability to hold it at a ...

Up until the high-frame rate (HFR) section of the video I would have said that all you need is a Canon MP-E 65mm Macro Lens, a nice LED light (so as not to fry the poor bugs with all the IR radiation that comes from tungsten halogen sources), and a camera with a reasonable video codec that accepts Canon lenses. However, the HFR section is clearly in the ...

I misspoke in my original question, I've fixed the sentence so hopefully it should be clearer. I'm just wanting to listen to the PC out, while simultaneously listing to the Mic out as I record it. If you using Windows, then just go to the Sound (Right click in notification area) > Recording devices > Chose you device > Properties > Listen > Listen to ...

I don't think that you really thought this through thoroughly. (what a sentence!) On a serious note tho, it would mean that you always have to carry around batteries on you, enough for at least while you're awake, as well as storage devices which you'll want to backup, or at least have in a raid-system. All in all, it's firstly going to be very expensive. ...

Let's say you really want the splash to be in the scene, and it is not an accident, then you need to keep the camera close to the action. But if you want to control it you need to calculate the right distance, so it does not look like a smudge or simply a disrupting dark blur, so you need distance from the lens. Then you use a rig, not only to protect the ...

This is pure speculation with respect to the movie Gravity, but when people use expensive cameras around water, they usually protect them from the water. It's not very hard to do. If you search BNH for "Camera Rain Cover," you'll see that you get results for under $10. To protect the front end of the lens, often people will use a UV filter. Also, when ...

Yes, the tech is advanced enough. That is not going to be the problem. You can have a very small, low power camera - look at the ones drone racers use. They aren't high resolution, but that could work on your favour as well, as they won't use as much storage. They also cope reasonably well with differing light conditions. You can power from a belt-mounted ...

That would be a great question for Canon, because only the manufacturer can provide the reasons considered when producing a new model. I only can venture a guess that the M6 is a smaller camera that presumably is a lower-level compared to full-body T5. Maybe higher bitrate results in more heat, and the smaller body may have issues with dissipating it. Your ...

Depends on the type of mount your camera has. This is a good solution for the A7S or A7R and was recently shown at NAB: The Aputure DEC. They also have one for MFT. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?ci=23192&N=3989452947&mnp=0&mxp=1000 And this should be available soon! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1608311032/lenzhound-wireless-lens-...
