The Ronin S And Crane v2 Review

The Ronin S And Crane v2 Review
The Ronin S And Crane v2 Review

Hey, guys,Coming to you from a condo two point oh, here at Sonis event in, I was really hoping to see the A7 s three, but that is not going to happen.

Unfortunately, I am once again disappointed. And right now I’m headed over to check out the Ronan S.. So I was not in maybe this year, unfortunately, but they are having a setup here. They’re going to show it off. Hopefully I’ll get the test and see how it compares to my favorite gambol. The Tzion Crane.

Everyone says they want a smaller lighter for the muralists. Yes, that’s what was taken. Right. He asked for. So spend a little while shooting with the Ronan and.

And I have to say, this thing is a beast, not only the build quality, but the weight of this system. So I thought it was going to compare more closely to my crane V2. But this is basically more like a crane two and maybe even a little bit larger and heavier.

With that said, it feels super solid in the capabilities of this compared to my crane, which I’ll grab over here, is it’s much more capable, not only in the strength of the motors, the amount of weight that you can balance on the system, which is more important really, than motor strength, the ability you have different accessories hooked up, the sport mode, holding down the arm.

And this thing just follows anything you want on the fly.

You let go and now you’re back to your smooth shots holding on this trigger and then just being able to lock off the shot. And then, Orson, you let go. Now you’re doing your regular smooth shots. That is really, really cool to have. Were on the crane V2.

I have to switch my modes so I can switch my mode, have it be locked off switch, have it be follow or switch over to like it’s a different profile. Have a sport mode where with this guy on the fly, I could just do these crazy shots. Let me move this down a little bit.

That’s cool.And then hold on the trigger and then now, Alison, I am just locked off here.

So along with the larger size, the motors are super powerful. They’re saying that the motors are about twice as powerful as on their Ronan M or C 200, even one F S5. This thing will handle it, whereas of course, the Crane V2 does not.

So I do like having this symbol, even though I have Gimbel’s that kandal more weight.

This is what I use most of the time, which is why I’m comparing these to seeing what it’s going to be like moving over to something like this. With this, I typically use mirrorless camera with a prime lens. Keep it small light so I can just shoot for a very long time.

Nugget’s height pulling this thing. I’m already kind of getting tired, so I’m going to be building more muscle using a system like this. But it’s definitely, definitely much more capable.

They have a mode called infinite mode, which you don’t get with this, where you can actually roll the camera and get some really, really sweet shots. So I’m looking forward to checking that out. Basically, if you’re trying to choose between the two and that’s why watching this article, not just for fun, if you shoot a small camera, light camera, light lenses.

I think this is going to be more of your go to. And if you’re coming from a Two-Handed Gimbel, like the Ronin M or some other system, but you want the conveniences of Single-handed Gilmore being able to hold it closer to your body, being able to see the screen, which you cannot with a crane Gimbels and just being small, light and not having to hold something out in front of you and away from you.

This thing is going to do the job. So deejay’s, holding it back a little bit. It should be launching ginning of June, actually.

They wanted to get the software right, which I applaud them for doing that.

A lot of companies just push something out onto the market because they have deadlines and then they have issues and firmware updates and all that stuff. So thank you, T.J. I’m looking forward to picking one of these up and doing a longer term review.

But for now, if you want to move down into a single hand, Gimbel with a larger camera system or maybe same type of camera system, but using these GMAC lenses, this is definitely your go to over a crane V2.

And honestly, with a price point of this system, firer choosing between the crane to not the V2, I would choose this guy right here as far as price points.

They’re saying under a hundred for sure, maybe under 700, but they’re still trying to figure that out. You’re gonna have wireless far follow focused system with a motor that attaches for under 200.

So if you have manual lenses, you’re gonna be able to control those.

And they have this false focus system which does not work with the Sony cameras. They have a little display units. They can change all your settings.

There’s a lot of stuff that they’re putting out and they have plans for more accessories as well. So overall, I’m really liking this thing. I knew I would like it other than the wait. Who knows? They might make a run. I don’t know. Something lighter and smaller.

I think that would be great, because if you’re shooting, let’s say, in a sixty five hundred and a few prime lenses or even the smaller lighter it zooms.

This thing is really overkill. You’re really gonna be putting a strain on yourself. It is unnecessary. But for the more pro market, the guys are shooting with larger systems. This thing is excellent and it’s a quality wise in capability wise.

It does take a step over what Crean is doing, even with the crane to if. Yes, I have any questions you guys can ask in the comment section below.

The iPhone shoots Review

The iPhone shoots Review
The iPhone shoots Review

Hey, guys,Apple just announced their iPhone eight and iPhone tens. This is not iPhone eight. This is iPhone seven plus. But I will have an iPhone eight as soon as it’s available on September 22nd.

And we will be taking a look at its video footage and maybe doing some comparison tests.

If you guys want to see that, make sure. And don’t forget it. Enable those notifications.

Well, a huge selling point, at least to me, is that the new iPhones will shoot for K at 60 frames per second and 10 ATP 240 frames per second.

Now, I’ve already seen multiple people ask online. How is it that an iPhone can shoot for key at 60 frames per second and ten idea to 40 frames per second, which is crazy.

But the majority of DSL, Lars and Mirrorless Camera, can’t. So what is the simplest answer? And if I just want to say one way, very simply, it’s processer the actual C.P.U that is inside of these cameras.

So these camera companies, when they’re making a camera, they’re focusing on the auto focusing features and they buy a from some type of manufacturer.

Now, what Apple does and why their phones can be shooting at Fourcade 60 is because the processor is insanely powerful. The latest processor in the new iPhone is going to be more powerful than 2017, just newly released 13 inch MacBook pros with the AI seven Intel processor. So that is insane.

How powerful they’re getting these processors and graphics all in one unit.

So I have these cameras set up here. So just to illustrate why processors matter and we rarely talk about processes and cameras, we just look at specs, what the camera could do, what it can’t do.

It does overheat, does not overheat, but so much has to do with the processor.

Before I talk about these cameras, I’ll just mention on the GoPro side. So this is my GoPro. Here are three plus. I did not upgrade to the GoPro here for it because I bought this year for Kate. Why did I do that? Well, the GoPro for a shot for Kate at 24 or 30 frames per second.

But the battery life sucked and it would overheat if it’s warm outside and you’re shooting for a video. Why did I do that? Well, it’s the processor.

So the processor was inefficient. It created a lot of heat. It drained a lot of battery, and the camera would overheat because of that. So they used for K camera uses a newer version of that processor and a newer version of a Sony sensor inside of it.

And it has much, much better battery life and it does not overheat.

Well, the way processors work is as time progresses and the technology gets better, the processors will either use less power or they will get more powerful or typically both. So the newer version, it uses less power in it you, which means it has less heat.

So it’s not going to overheat. And it also gets better battery life, which is why this thing can record and Fourcade and do it well. And even this Ocky camera, they’re going to have a review video on soon. This is 70 bucks.

They can now record for Caite, which is kind of technology and processing power trickle down. I’ll put a link to this guy in the video description. So.

So you guys can see as we’re getting better processors, we’re able to do more and do it better with less heat and less battery usage. Now, have these cameras set up here.

It’s kind to illustrate the difference. So this is a G.H. five.

They can do for K at 60 and ten eighty at one one hundred eighty frames per second. So this is the closest to the iPhone. It does have a powerful processor in it and it uses the full sensor when recording its recording.

It does not crop in meaning it has enough processing power to read all that data and downsampling. Now if you guys remember the G.H. for it could not do that.

If you’re gonna be recording for K, you actually had to crop into the sensor to record for K. Because the processor, the S.P. was not powerful enough. And then on top of that, I don’t have a camera here, but the five day mark for it crops in a lot. It uses about the same sensor as a as a Panasonic microphone. There is, but it’s a full frame camera.

That’s because the processor that they put in there is not powerful enough to get all that data. So they literally just read a small portion of the sensor.

And the reason why a records into motion JPEG, which is like a 20 year old codec, is because the processor is not powerful enough to record into and out to H.R. two six four or MP four formats. So processors matter a ton. Couple more examples for you.

The A sixty five hundred will do a full sensor readout. So six K into four K.

But only at twenty four frames for a second. If you go to 30 it actually has the punch in because the processor is not powerful enough and obviously is not going to be doing for K at 60.

Now this camera here might look weird to you if you guys haven’t been following my channel for too long, but this is a Sony Samsung, which is no longer in the business as the Samsung, an X one. This camera is about three years old.

It came out shortly after the G.H. four. But what it did is that APC sensor in a red six point five K more than even the A sixty five hundred’s.

Like the eight nine six point five K full sensor, it would not punch in at all.

It take all that data and it would put it into a fork, a video. So the video is beautiful from his camera, very detailed. Basically, it’s slightly more detailed than the a sixty five hundred. And if you’re shooting for K 30, it would not punch in because it had enough processing power.

Three year old camera and same thing, 10 A.D. at 120. It would not punch in because out of processing power. So as you guys can see, if you want to be recording a video, you want to be reading out censor as you want to be taking all that data and encoding it.

You need a powerful processor. So we talked about power. What about heat?

Well, everybody knows that the Sony cameras are notorious for overheating. And it sucks. It really sucks. So this is a 60, 500 or a 63. I’m recording with a sixty five hundred and even a nine and seven hour two and a seven s two, depending on which model we have and how long your recording amby attempts, they will get hot and overheat.

That is also because of the processors. They’re using older processors that are not as efficient.

And I’ve been waiting for new models to come out for them to get new processors that are getting more efficient, which is going to improve rolling shutter, which is another issue that they have and it’s going to reduce heat, making it possible for these cameras to not overheat when you’re recording for Cape.

So when he hasn’t done it yet, hopefully they will do it soon, especially if they put out like a a seven S3 or a nine S.

They could do for a 60, then they’ll have to have a more powerful, more efficient, newer processor reducing heat. So, yes, we need more powerful processors.

And the reason why this cell phone or the newer version, the cell phone can record 40, 60 antennae to be at 240 frames per second, mainly is because as ultra powerful processor built in. And cell phones are the is improving so fast as so much money and so much development that in that market that they’re able to just keep cranking out and improving the processors and improving the video recording capabilities.

So hopefully some of these cameras start camera companies start investing in higher end or modern and newer S.P. used to have more power so that they can minimize the heat and improve the recording capabilities.

So Samsung did it because they had a smartphone division.

So they grabbed their latest and greatest put in here and made this an incredibly capable camera. I wish Samsung was still in the business because we’d have 40, 60 recording, you know, long before even the G.H. five had that.

So if you guys have any questions, ask him the comment section below.

Hopefully this article helped explain it. Now, there are a little bit there’s a little bit more to it. Of course, a sensor has to be capable of being read out fast enough and stuff like that. And you have to be able to record the data fast enough.

But like I said, the easiest answer is the pews are just not capable of doing that or they’ll just get too hot and they’ll overheat really quickly so they can’t use them for that reason.

Portable 4K Video Editing PC

Portable 4K Video Editing PC
Portable 4K Video Editing PC

Because it smacks in this venue, I’m talking about my twelve hundred dollar ultimate portable Fourcade video editing machine. Now, you guys have asked a lot of questions about this computer.

Usually it’s right back there behind me that wasn’t going to make article on it until you had so much requests, people asking that information, stuff like that.

If you guys want to know the full spec list, I’ll have a link in the article description.

The computer is in here. My main goal for this build was for it to be portable, for it to run OSX so I can use final cut my preferred video editing software and for it not to cost a lot of money.

Now, the reason I built this machine is after I did my comparison test between my Mac pro that cost me five grand and three thousand five Karnac. I was really surprised how well the Mac did and beat it. And majority of the tests I kind of set out to build a machine that is inexpensive and it’s going to edit really well. This is it. So take a look at how it looks when I take it out of the backpack.

As you guys can see, this computer is really small.

Now, it’s not as small as the Mac pro, but it’s still small enough to fit inside a backpack with a full sized monitor as well as keyboard mouse and other accessories. So let’s go ahead and talk about the performance.

First, I want to start off with some benchmarking software to look at Geek Bench 3D.

Now you see that the hacking tosh performs very similar to the AI Mac. That’s because they’re using the same exact processor, same amount of RAM. And there and you look at the six Cormark Pro, it actually does a little bit better in the multi threading because it has six cores instead of four. But in the single core, it does worse.

Meaning if you have programs like Photoshop, Lightroom, if you’re using stuff like that, it’s going to perform better on hacking. Tosh where I’m Mac.

Basically, you need fast clock speed instead of more cores. Now let’s look at unit and having benchmark. You’ll see that the hack and tushes better than both of those computers and also runs cooler. So it’s another advantage of the system. It does run fairly cool.

Now let’s look at some video editing performance. Looking at 10 ADP and premier pro, you’ll see the hack hacking.

Tosh does the best out of all three systems gone over the final cut. You’ll see the IMAX exports the fastest. Now, this is going to be something you’re going to see a lot.

It’s using Intel Quixey technology to really push the export. So it definitely takes the lead there. But as far as actually editing the video, it’s going to perform very similar to the hack and Tosh looking at some footage with lots and grain applied.

You’ll see in Premier Pro, the Hackenbush once again is doing the best and final cut.

It’s right there in the middle, doing better than the Mac Pro. So taking a look at Fourcade, you’ll see that once again, it’s the fastest in premier, pro and in final. It does take third place. Now, this last test is the most stressful test. It’s for Fourcade.

So it’s a really, really stressful on a system. So here you see in Premier Pro, it’s definitely taking through the IMAX, definitely taking third place and the hack and Tosh is leading ahead once again.

So it’s really doing that, taking care of that well.

And a final cut. IMAX, once again does take first place this way. It’s really impressive, but it’s using it until Quixey technology and my hacket Tosh does exactly the same time as that Mac pro that costs three times more when it’s used or four times more and when it’s new.

So there you go. You guys could see the performance of this machine. It really does well.

Now, one thing that it really also leads ahead is the temperatures. It runs a lot cooler and also quieter than IMAX because I like is made to be just thin and beautiful. So that does overheat when it’s transcoding or if you’re doing some gaming and it has a throttle, the C.P.U down, the Mac pro doesn’t have to throttle anything. And it does run warmer than the setup.

But the Mac pros completely silent. This computer is audible.

You hear the fans, but it does run cooler. So it’s a little bit, you know, different setup with all three of those computers. So I’m basically really happy with how this thing performed, how well it did when I needed to be traveling to different locations.

The reason why I am putting together different computer is because I don’t need to travel anymore. I’m basically in my office all the time when I’m editing.

So I got a bigger motherboard and a bigger case so I can have a rate setup in there as well as 30 to get the ram. Of course, any small system with the micro mini ATX board SOLINGEN in a support 16 gigs RAM, which is enough for most projects, really. So thank you. Yes.

From washing. Let me know what you guys thought of this setup of the parts that I use, the performance that it puts out.

If you guys have any questions, you guys can ask me. And once again, all the parts are listed in the article description. And if you want to take a look at the backpack I use where the monitor, if you want to copy this build, you guys can find the info as well.

So this really proves that you don’t need a Mac pro if you want to be portable and if you want to have good performance. And it also proves if you need to be portable, you don’t mind taking a little bit more weight. You don’t need to buy a laptop.

You can get better performance, about twice as good performance compared to a MacBook Pro and about half the price. So definitely performance per dollar, especially when you’re looking into having something that’s portable.

This thing is ultimate. That’s why I called it the ultimate four K portable computer. So let me know what you think and I will see you guys in the next one.

The Honest Sony With A New Microphone Review

The Honest Sony With A New Microphone Review
The Honest Sony With A New Microphone Review

This article is brought to you by privacy com, which lets you buy things online using virtual cards, protecting your identity and bank information on the Internet.

Hey, guys, I’m here. A camera cam. I have my cowboy hat on in Montana. So we’re having a great time. And I’m shooting on the Sony, a sixty six hundred with a new microphone and the new 16 to fifty five lens. So that’s what we’re gonna be talking about today is a sixty six hundred worth it along with this lens.

So I’ve been shooting with this combo for about a day and a half now, and I have to say that my thoughts are quite mixed. Let’s start off with the lens.

And man, this thing is impressive. I’ve had multiple different sixteen fifty fives or seventeen of 50s at a Sigma Tamron. I had a Samsung one. I had a really nice Fuji lens.

This thing beats all of those out. It is so small and it’s sharp. It’s compact. It is very well balanced. Even on this really small body. Whereas the Fuji lens is just really large, especially on something like the X T-3. This thing is surprisingly small for a lens of this type. It is also a very sharp, good autofocus, good build quality.

It is all around winner. If you need one of these lenses, if you’re shooting with an APC sensor or a Super 35, I think you will not be disappointed. It doesn’t have any stabilization, but that’s a way that they made a small some of the other ones don’t either.

But they’re way larger. The only of downside is the price. It is expensive.

I would like to see it maybe 200 Rs less. But I think Sony knows that people want to slander people. Been asking for at least three for five years now. They delivered. But you have to put up with that price next. That little microphone on top.

It is nice to know. And fortunately, the camera they 60s sounded doesn’t support the full digital signal like a sonar for us. But hopefully in the future they some industry will. And maybe if we have a better APRC body, it will. But I really like that microphone.

That’s what I’m using right now. Let me know your thoughts. How does it sound? We have waves and all that stuff in the background. And now let’s jump to the camera. This is all my thoughts are really mics. I am on both sides here.

So to start off, it’s a lot of familiar things that I don’t even think this camera really needs its own separate review video. So a sixty five hundred with some of the upgrades from a 64.

Of course, we have things like the large battery now, which means the grip is larger and this is the most comfortable grip in a camera that they’ve made it.

That’s a really nice improvement in battery life is so much better.

Just as you would expect for four key recording, you can get close to two and a half hours of walking recording. And that’s continuous because this camera does not have a limit.

You can roll for two and a half hours. Plus, we have a headphone jack. That is another nice addition, of course, compared to the a sixty four hundred.

Now we have IBIS built in. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be much better than the A sixty five hundred is just standing there holding it.

It works pretty well but walking man that is, it’s not great. So I wish that was updated. Of course the rear LCD display like the screen, it does not dim just like the A sixty four hundred four. So for usability that is really, really nice to have.

That is so cool to see and it really picks up that even sideways. So that is impressive. So I guess that will help out and help the face detection and be able to track faces and eyes now better than before, but didn’t have much problems before the face detection that did a great job. But they are stepping it up to all of those things are a nice evolution over the a sixty five hundred and sixty four hundred.

And if you want a camera like this and you need something that’s better now, I think you’re going to be happy with it just because of the ease of use. Those enhancements, I think day to day for shooting. Often that does help, especially in the video side.

Now, why am I not so excited about. Well, I’m not excited that it’s the same sensor. I’m not excited though. Enough 60 frames per second. Obviously, Sony has the sensors to do that. The Fujifilm X 23 shoots. Fourcade, 60, has higher bit rates. It has that better the newer sensor inside of it. You can shoot with a shot to six five.

Of course, that has bad battery life and no ibis, which this thing has good battery life, really good battery life and ibis.

But I just feel like they could have done so much more.

And even though I am going to buy one of these in Selma, a 60 400 because of the bigger battery and that little bit better autofocus, I wish they did more. I really I. Now, they didn’t price this at some crazy higher level.

The price of the same as the a sixty five hundred it was when it came out. So now China, you know, makes a 7000. They called it sixty six hundred, just a step above the sixty five hundred. So they’re not trying to market as that. They’re not trying to say this is a new revolution.

They’re saying, hey, this is our next little small upgrade to the sixty five hundred.

That’s kind of the replacement for it. We have some nice usability upgrades. Flip up screen. Here you go. You know, enjoy it and use it. But I think the guys have been shooting with a 60 500 for a while, a 60, 300. We would rather spend maybe a little bit more and got something like a larger A7 body with, you know, maybe a 26 megapixel sensor for a 60.

I think so much people have been excited for that with IBIS. Good battery life. I don’t know. I don’t know what they’re kind of game plan is. It seems like instead of making huge steps, they’re making good steps.

Good upgrades, but more evolutionary ones instead of a revolution, of course, wait for the A7 S3 as well. So that is my thoughts on the system.

I’ve been shooting with it. I’ve been enjoying it. But there’s not that much new things.

It is more nice to shoot with. I like it, but I wish they did more. So I don’t think you’ll be disappointed if you know what you’re getting into. You’re buying it. All these little upgrades that they’ve made with the 60 400 and they take that add on more things.

The battery life is just huge. If you’re event shooter, not having the record them is huge.

Being able to just hit a record and go and not worry about it for a long time. That is nice. And even if you shoot photos, time lapses to have a large battery, that is really, really nice. Plus, the new menu upgrades, the main menu, the different little software updates that they did, the headphone jack.

They’re all great things. So it’s not a bad camera at all. It has a good camera.

But Sony works 60. Please, please. That’s kind of what we want. So thank you guys for watching. I’m still going to hang out here at camera cam for another day. It has been awesome. I went to condo before.

I was mainly geared towards photographers here. And this is all video.

So I’m learning YouTube analytics. I’m using learning other things that can improve my craft. Helped me create better content for you meeting up with other creators. I’m shooting some stuff with the iPhone eleven against some other cameras.

So if you guys are interested in that, I’ll have a little link right there to our tech channel. You guys can go and check that out. Let me know if you guys have any questions down in the comment section below. And, of course, awesome links in the video description.

Edelkrone Slider Plus With Newest Lide Module

Edelkrone Slider Plus With Newest Lide Module
Edelkrone Slider Plus With Newest Lide Module

I’ve used many sliders throughout my career as a filmmaker, ranging from cheapo ones that were quite terrible, but got me started up to systems that costs over two thousand dollars but had less features in my new system, weren’t as smooth and honestly were quite mediocre.

But today, I’m going to show you why the Etel Crohn slider plus paired with their newest lide module and had one system, is the best slider I’ve ever used.

I currently own three sliders and I have owned an adult Crohn in the past, and I’ve also used multiple of the previous versions before extensively on various shoots, and I’ve always been very intrigued with them, not only with the capabilities, but also because of how innovative of a company Edel Krohn is.

They continue to keep thinking of new awesome ideas and products for as filmmakers, things that we’ve never even asked for or thought about. But they actually come in very useful when you try them.

There’s a ton to talk about, but today I’m going to focus on their updated slider.

I really like the capabilities of their previous motorized systems, but there are a few things that I didn’t love. So an adult can reach out to me and wanted to partner with me and send out their latest system for me to test out and make a video on.

I was intrigued. Now, they didn’t tell me what kind of video to make the length, what to say with a title or anything like that. So everything said are my own opinions, and as you could probably tell, it actually exceeded my expectations.

The base of the system is the slider plus, which you’re most likely familiar with.

The latest version has some upgrades that I really like. I have the long version, but in all reality, it’s actually not that long and it’s shorter than my previous compact version of a slider.

And that’s even with the motorized module attached. And thanks to its extended slide design, I actually have more range now than I did before when it’s on a tripod and also Dolly shots, since a slider doesn’t get in the way when it’s not on the tripod.

Your age is limited to the length of the slider and I use the built in foldable feet that I personally like.

You do need to tighten them from time to time, but that’s a tradeoff I’d gladly take to be able to fold them and adjust them quickly without having to use thumbscrews that have little teeth or notches or Allen wrenches.

My favorite upgraded part of the slider itself is the magnetic slip and belts.

This is the point of frustration with my other sliders having to pull the belt tighter than needed and then clamp it down, realizing you overdid it and it’s too tight or is just too loose with their new belts. You can swap from regular to the motorized belt in just seconds, which is great for fast swapping out in the field.

The slider by itself works great, but it gets even better when you add that slide module.

This takes you from smooth manual slides to being able to do ultra smooth, repeatable slides. Time lapses. Looser things like interviews or cloning and more. Everything is controlled through a smartphone app, which is one of the reasons why I think this is the best slider ever.

My previous system had a dedicated controller that needed to be wired and connected, that we had a built in battery that you couldn’t replace.

And the whole thing busted on me and I had to buy a new one. Having a controller app that could be updated with new features for longevity is a much better solution.

But I’ll talk about that more in just a bit. Where things get interesting is when you start to expand the system, which is another reason why I think this is the best Lider system and all Crone has a host of accessories they can use and even stack together.

That works seamlessly, adding a single head. One module will give you pand control like I have with my other system, but adding two of them gives me something I didn’t have, which is till functionality.

And it’s going to really take your shots to another level. Each of these systems uses a single Canice cell battery instead of having to charge the system, which is more convenient, especially for long shoots where you don’t want to or can’t plug in there.

Simple to operate pop in one battery and you’ll hear a little chime telling you that it’s on.

Now, one downside is that you need to remember to remove the battery after you shoot.

We’re also will stay on and slowly drain. One thing I noticed right away is how quiet they are, even at full speed. They’re actually quieter than my previous system, running at a low speed. So shooting interviews in a quiet environment won’t be an issue.

Now, what impressed me the most is how simple it is for all of these wireless kits to sync up. You literally just open their newly updated app. You hit smart pairing in just within a few seconds. All of these separate components wirelessly paired together, no cables, no manual sinking, just really great design.

You can even plug your cable for camera control into either module.

Allow you to keep your cable around short and out of the way, which is another reason why I really like the system. It’s these kinds of little things that end up adding up together to make a really powerful and pleasant to use system. They can enjoy using instead of having to battle it.

Now, let’s move on to the app at the top. We have our battery levels.

And also, depending on what parts you have connected, that changes what will show up in the app, which is another plus of having an app and not a fix system. The whole app is very intuitive at the top level. We have a pan until controls and the right side.

We have a slide. We have a module for focus will be in the center.

You can control both the pan until at the same time we could tap on one of the icons to turn that one off to make sure you don’t accidentally change it in the center.

You can program many positions. And what’s really cool is that you can actually take a photo of each one, which really helps you remember what you’re actually tapping on next is just a tap on the one you want, and the system will automatically go and adjust to the exact settings that you preset if you want to adjust the speeds or the ease that could be done with the sliders at the bottom. You want to set up a loop?

No problem. Just press on both of them at the same time in your set and they’ll even tell you how long will it take to go from one to the other.

If you want to go between many positions, you could use the sequencer. Of course, we also have the time lapse mode which can control your camera and even a stop motion option.

If you have the laser module, you’ll also see an option for that. Now, there are some downsides to having an app, which is things like maybe having bugs, which I personally did experience with this version of the software.

And you also need to reconnect to the components. If you walk away where if you close the app. But don’t worry, if you set up a time lapse or loop anything like that, that will keep running.

Of course, you have to have your phone with you and make sure that your phone is charged. But overall, most of this is painless and also quick.

So, as I said, I would much rather have it this way than have something that’s limited.

And tethering with a cable would require me to be right next to a slider to control it in my line of work. A slider is really indispensable. It even though so many people are focusing on other stabilization tools.

I feel like a slider can add a lot to your production, especially if you have a few motorized modules you can creatively manipulate. But even if you just have a base slider that nice and steady, smooth parallax movement looks really good and very clean.

The last few reasons I want to talk about on why this is the best slider system I’ve ever used is durability and expand ability.

You can start off with just one slider and slowly build up your system and expand its capabilities, which is great and for durability.

This thing is really solid and not just a slider, but every piece that I am using from the different tools that they give you to the mounting kits to the bell quality. It’s top notch. My system ended up taking a small fall and I was worried, but everything worked perfectly afterwards.

Now, I don’t recommend dropping it or anything like that, but I have had a few parts.

Another Slider’s bend or break with similar falls. So so far this system has been solid. That’s probably thinks the most of it being made from metal and because of the squarish design without Expo’s moving parts. So because of that, it should be very durable long term.

All right, guys. So that is it. This is my newest lighter thanks to El Crohn.

They’re all designed was good, but this new one is so much better. And the tops, every other slider system that I’ve used and owned, some of which costs even more money.

So I’ll be letting go of my other sliders. And from now on, I’m going to have this more capable, less frustrating, smoother experience and oko system for my slider shots. If you guys want to check out the slider and the other components in my kit, I will have all of them linked in the video description.

And along with that, the other gear that I used to shoot this article.

A Really Great GH5 IBIS vs Gimbal Tested

A Really Great GH5 IBIS vs Gimbal Tested
A Really Great GH5 IBIS vs Gimbal Tested

Hey, guys,Today, we’re gonna take a look at Ibis versus Gamble. I’ve get this question quite a bit in the comment section. People saying, well, if you have a really great ibis, just like the G.H. five has. Do you even need a gamble?

What’s the point of having a gamble? So for me, there are different tools is basically the right tool for the job. I used a to get kind of cinematic smooth motion, and this is great for a handheld and some walking shots.

Now here I have a G.H. five with a twelve to thirty five, version two.

So this is using the latest and greatest duel. Yes. Two point. Oh. And this is arguably probably the best ibis system on the market. The Olympus A1 Mach two is also very good, but they’re either neck and neck. Maybe this one slightly better.

Here I have a Sony, a sixty three hundred. So no ibis in here.

And the lens that I have turned off the steady shot. So absolutely no stabilization other than the Gimbel. No, no, no ways. This was to be a comparison between these two cameras.

I just have one G.H. five and I don’t want to keep taking it on and off. So we’re gonna make a little easier this way. But we’ll see what you can get with no stabilization at all other than the GIMPLE itself and the really, really nice Dulay. Yes. 2.0 IBIS system.

So the first test we’re gonna do is gonna be a walking test, just like if you’re walking and recording of logging, recording somebody else, something like that, I’m going to walk as smoothly as I can. With the GS five, with the dual I Yes. 2.0 system. And then we’ll switch over to the Gimbel.

This lens is quite impressive for the dual eye, yes. I don’t think I’ve seen anything as smooth as this.

The next thing we’re gonna test is running shots now.

A few years ago, we wouldn’t even think about running with a camera, especially one this small in hand. You’re either having a dolly set up a car or in a vehicle or something like that. I’m going to try to be as ready as I can with a g h five. Then I’ll switch over to the Gimbel.

All right. Gimel time. All right, next, we’re going gonna do a vlog walk and once again, 12 mm, so twenty four equivalent.

Hey, guys, this is me. Testing the G five with a really nice dual I. S 2.0 system for logging.

This is logging with a sixty three hundred on a gimbel. We’ll see how smooth it is. And of course, I can’t see myself the framing because there’s no flip out screen. Now I’m going to simulate kind of like a pair lapsing Michael Bay type shot, about 70 mil equivalent on both lenses and we’ll see how they do.

All right, so our last shot going to simulating a slider, doing like a revealing shot.

And this test are going to compare how it is just having a steady shot, holding the camera onto a subject. How a camera is no stabilization at all compares to the really nice do ibis at about 70 mil equivalent.

All right, guys. So that was a quick comparison between using a gamble and a really, really nice Abers system. I have a lot of different uses that I do with my Gimbel, and we just showed him off this video and saw how this compared.

Let me know, you guys, his opinions and what you thought in the comment section below. And are there any use cases where you can replace a gimbel with just a really nice dual ibis system? Yes. For watching.

The Brand New Sennheiser Wireless X. S Kit

The Brand New Sennheiser Wireless X. S Kit
The Brand New Sennheiser Wireless X. S Kit

Hey, guys,Today, we’re taking a look at the brand new Sennheiser Wireless X. S kit. That is this tiny little laugh mike system for all of you filmmakers. And let’s just take a little pause and admire how tiny this thing is.

And let’s pull this guy out right here. Many of you guys are using the road filmmaker set.

We’ve been using it ever since it came out. It is really nice, really easy to use. It works fantastic. But now it has a new competitor. Now, Sennheiser has been in the audio game for a long time.

And years ago when I got into filmmaking, everybody was using Sennheiser wireless backs. But after the road came out, a lot of people started switching to that.

Now I think they have some big competition and I think this thing is going to sell like crazy.

So I might have some links, the article description, if you guys want to check that out. And like you guys saw, this thing is so tiny and that’s my biggest complaint in most people’s biggest complaint about the road system.

Now, this video isn’t a full comparison against the road filmmaker kit that will be coming out on a separate article along with a detailed full up review in the future.

But we will be doing a sound test comparison against the road system, which I am using right now, to make sure you guys stay tuned for that. Just like the transmitter, the receiver is also so tiny and it has its separate little mount that can be detachable.

And that’s great because a lot of these small mirrorless cameras, when you put that large pack on there, you can’t use the IVF or you have to flip to the side.

So having something so slim and so small, that’s going to be horizontal on your camera.

You could just plug right in. That’s going to be a big convenience along with the small pack. Now, I did have a few concerns when I started reading about this set. A couple of those have already been addressed. And I’ll mention that in just a bit.

Let me show you what else comes included inside of the box. First off, like you saw that live. Mike, this is one hundred and thirty. All our. Mike, it’s also included in this seven dollar wireless set. So it is a high quality microphone.

Along with that, we have a USB type C charging cable.

And that is because these little units are both charged with USGBC and they have internal batteries that last about five hours and they take two hours to charge. So if you’re somebody that needs battery power for all day shooting, this might be a limitation to you.

But I think for most people it won’t be. Most people don’t record for that long as long as you remember the charges ahead of time.

If you don’t, you actually can power them through USP power. So I’ll leave a link to this one in the article description. It is very, very cheap. It’s also thin and lightweight.

So you could just slip in your pocket, plug it in and run off of it for a very long time. And it takes about two hours to charge up. So actually, as you’re running it, it will recharge at the same time. Now, along with that, we have these little labels.

That way, if you have multiple kits, you can label them once they’re connected and know which one goes to which.

They say you can connect five kids and use five at the same time. Other people mentioned that you can use more, but that’s kind of their official rating. And along with that, the awesome thing is that you can actually mix and match these.

So not only do they have a standard set for most filmmakers, we could put one on top of your camera, another one with a laugh, Mike.

They also have units with excellent power and quarter inch. So there’s a lot of flexibility.

And one kit that I think is very interesting is one that actually comes with one receiver and two transmitters and SLR one and three and a half inch, one for LAF Mike. I have a few more specs and findings to share with you, along with that comparison to the Road Wireless filmmaker.

But first, let me give a big shout out to the sponsor of this article, Squarespace.

Built five Web sites using Squarespace and have been recommending them for over four years now. So when they reached out and wanted to sponsor the channel, it was a no brainer. Whether you’re wanting to build a portfolio site, e commerce blog or anything else, they’ve got you covered.

They have an easy to use Web site builder and great template with automatic versions for mobile devices. Follow the link in the description to start your free trial with no credit card required. And then you can get 10 percent off your first purchase.

The tech that’s inside of here is the same as in the road wireless filmmakers set.

It’s a two point four gigahertz connection. The range is listed up to seventy five meters. I think it’s like a two hundred and fifty feet or so. And the road wireless set has a really good connection as far as long distance.

Along with that, it does a very similar thing where you can actually switch bands and a monitor for any interference and signal strength.

And on the fly, without any interruption, it will switch over to a different kind of frequency or connection. So that is very nice. It’s gonna help with interference and make sure you have the best connection possible. Now, as you may have noticed, there is only one button on this device and one little LCD light. You don’t have any display or anything like that and no settings or different things to change.

So as soon as you turn them on, they’re going to find each other and connect.

And you have to look at the LCD for all of your information. So you want to see the battery life. You want to see if it’s muted or unmuted. That is all done right here.

So you will have to learn kind of how to read some Morse code and pay attention to the different colors that are here. One of the concerns that I had personally is this little button that also acts as a mute button.

It’s really small here, but I felt like you could accidentally.

Press it, and in fact, it’s actually recessed enough and it does take a little bit of force to engage it. So I don’t think you’re going to accidentally trip it. No one really good feature is if somebody is using this wireless pack and they mute it and then they forget to unmuted.

Let’s say you’re recording like a life presentation or something like that. You can actually unmuted from your little receiver. And that’s a nice feature to have. My other concern was the build quality.

It is made all out of plastic, but it feels really nice and solid in the hand. It does have more weight than you would expect. It’s not too heavy, but it definitely feels sturdy.

And one issue that I’ve had with the RO is and we’ve went through multiple packs and other people I know that use them have went through multiple sets, mainly because they’re made out of plastic, but they’re also quite large.

So some people would end up sitting down and breaking them off. Or if it falls with your tripod, which I have had happened, it will break because it’s large.

It’s sticking out all over the place. So it’s something this small and compact. I don’t think it’s gonna be as big of an issue. So finally, let’s plug this in and compare the audio quality to the Road Wireless filmmaker set that you guys have been listening to this whole time. As you see, I do have a plugged in and charging because we haven’t charged these yet.

And we’ll see what kind of difference we hear. I do want to mention that you can’t swap out the microphone capsule.

And as far as the technology of sending the audio over, that’s not really gonna make a difference in sound. It’s more of the included mikes. So this is an audio quality tests with our Road Wireless filmmaker. And this is an audio quality test with a Sennheiser X. S Wireless. So go ahead. Let me know in the comment section below.

Which one do you think sounds better? I’m going to keep this thing connected since it’s already on, so I’ll let you guys know a couple more things before I wrap up the article.

The first thing is this is just designed to be a simple, easy, good sounding solution.

Not only this set, but the other sets as well, something that’s convenient, fast and easy to use. And I think that is a huge selling point. Now, because of this, we don’t have a lot of different options.

And one thing that it does not have that the road wireless does is the ability to adjust the levels. So on the road, you can go all the way up to plus 20 decibels or minus 20, which is quite nice. And you set both the receiver and the transmitter and you can adjust it that way.

I do not think you could do this with this pack right here, but we did test out both on as far as gain. And I typically keep my road at the zero, the default setting. And this one is a little bit more sensitive or has a little bit harder signal than the road pack does.

And maybe you guys could tell a difference right now.

So that’s about it for our first initial look at the Sennheiser wireless set. Like I said, I think this thing is going to sell very, very well because of the price point and the convenience and especially pide. The biggest selling point is the size of these.

You guys let me know what you think about these and if you’re considering picking one of these up.

You guess how those notifications enabled because we will be doing a full, detailed comparison against the Road Wireless filmmaker kit. And along with that, I will have a follow up review after we’ve used these for about a month or so.

So you guys definitely want a missile on that. Thank you guys for watching.

The iMac Pro Tested Against New iMac

The iMac Pro Tested Against New iMac
The iMac Pro Tested Against New iMac

About a year ago, Apple released their five key,I made a pretty big splash in the market at that point, Fourcade displays were just starting to get adopted. And to get a display that’s almost twice the resolution of four K was pretty crazy.

Not only that, the five key I-Max did a great job of video editing at that time.

I had a six core Mac pro with the best graphics available and I tested it against this new iMac and it lost in almost all of the tests. That was crazy that I’m AG did such a great job. It was shocking to me. Now, the only downside that I found is that if you’re pushing the C.P.U to 100 percent for an extended period of time or the GP, you.

It actually has to slow itself down to keep itself from overheating.

That’s because of the thin design and the powerful parts that are inside. So that fact kept some people from purchasing this new computer. Now, if you’re just doing video editing, some standard stuff, you wouldn’t experience that.

But if you’re really pushing it to the limit, that was going to happen. Now, about a week ago, Apple just released the newer version of this. This is the late 2015 version of the five K iMac.

The updated some of the parts added some new features. It has a new operating system. But the main question that came to my mind when I sighs. Is it going to be overheating?

So this is the question. Answering in this video. Let’s take a look at the first test. The first test we’re looking at is you in heaven. This is a benchmark that pushes the GP you to 100 percent and test how well it performs last year.

I’m I got up to ninety eight degrees on the graphics card by the end of the test.

That’s really hot. Looking at the C.P.U. Sixty five degrees. That’s just fine. And the fan R.P.M. is right about half way looking at the new iMac. The fan stays all the way at idle completely through test. The C.P.U is 12 degrees cooler and the graphics card is 10 degrees cooler.

That’s definitely a good improvement. I went ahead and ran the benchmark for more times consecutively for a total of five runs without any pauses.

Now you see, the graphics card did get hotter between 96 to 98 degrees. But the fan was almost at Eido the whole time. It would actually go between twelve fifty and fourteen hundred to keep it right at that temperature.

So there is no graphics card throttling or slowing down, but it does run fairly hot. My next question was what if I take control the fan speed myself? Is it going to run cooler?

Because the last test when I ran five test consecutively, it was almost idle. The fan was basically silent. So went ahead and I put the fan maximum speed, 28 50 R.P.M.

Looking at the results, you’re getting 40 degrees Celsius on the C.P.U and 66 degrees on the graphics card. Now, there really is no reason for it to run that cool.

You’re not going to get any extra life out of your computer. Burning in that cool and that fan at full blast is quite loud. So next thing I do is I lowered it down to two thousand, which is right in the middle and at two thousand r.p.m.

You could still game using the IMAX speakers. The fanboys is not going to overpower the music and sound from your games. So you guys see the results just a little bit hotter on the C.P.U, 46 degrees and seventy five degrees on the GP.

That is great. What I would actually do is maybe even lower it to eighteen hundred if you’re gonna be doing any kind of gaming, maybe even seventeen hundred in your GP and C.P.U temps are going to be just fine.

I’m definitely happy with the results. Even if you don’t touch the fan speed at all.

The graphics code is not going to overheat. It’s going to make sure it keeps it under that 100 degree mark. For me, it’s a little bit hot, even though it’s not going to make a difference, it’s not any slowing down.

So I would suggest to kick up the fan a little bit, even maybe to fifteen hundred or sixteen hundred if you’re gonna be doing any type of gaming or something that’s going to push your graphics card to 100 percent.

So looking at just this, I’m definitely happy that we solved one problem.

Now let’s go out and take a look at the results of the C.P.U test. The tests that Iran is converting HDR to six firefighters to progress.

Now, this pushes the C.P.U to 100 percent. Looking at the chart, you can see that at idle, the C.P.U runs slightly cooler about the one minute mark. You’ll notice that both of the computers are about the same temperatures.

But interestingly, the new iMac is actually running the fanna. Eighteen hundred R.P.M. already instead of 100, which is the idol, the lowest setting at the three minute mark.

The older version would ramp up to 2000 r.p.m.. But you see, the C.P.U would get up to 95 degrees Celsius. The new iMac would be at twenty seven hundred already. That’s the maximum the older one would get.

And it’s a eighty nine degrees. The temperature hasn’t really changed at the five minute mark. The iMac stays relatively the same. The older version, the newer one actually cools the C.P.U down a little bit. We’re eighty seven degrees now and the fan slowed down slightly.

So very interesting. Ten minute mark, the older iMac would already be going full blast. And you see there’s already some thermal throttling going on. It’s a ninety seven degrees and the computer slowed down from four gigahertz to three point eight.

The new iMac is at twenty eight fifty. And it’s at ninety degrees right now.

It’s after 10 minutes of 100 percent C.P.U usage. Interestingly enough, the new IMAX fan go slightly faster than the old version at the 15 minute mark. The old one would slow down the fans slightly. It’d be a 96 degrees in the C.P.U would start going faster once again.

The newer IMAX would be at 25 50. So it’s slowed down the fan more as well. But is that 88 degrees Celsius? So definitely cooler at 15 minutes and 30 seconds.

The old IMAX would be at twenty seven hundred R.P.M. and at one hundred degrees in the C.P.U would go down considerably to three point three gigahertz. Very interesting. The new IMAX would be at 26 50 in still eighty nine degrees. If you see the temperature staying relative right there at 20 minutes, the old IMAX would be going full blast on the fan.

Ninety seven degrees Celsius and I’d be running at the slow speed of three point four gigahertz.

The new IMAX, on the other hand, twenty seven hundred as well. And it’s a 87 degrees. So 10 degrees cooler. If we look at the older chip, you’ll see it only slows down when it gets to about 100 degrees. This new IMAX doesn’t get to that spot ever.

It stays between 87 and 90 degrees when you’re doing 100 percent C.P.U for a long time, which is perfect. I’m very happy that it does not slow down on the graphics card or the C.P.U.

You could see the Apple included a new fan with a new iMac. It goes a little bit faster.

But not only that, it actually ramps up the speed earlier. Apple loves to have quite hardware, so they rather have Hodor hardware that’s quieter than the opposite way around. I guess they learned their lesson with the last generation one.

So this one, it does kick in the fan earlier, but it keeps them from overheating.

And over all, it doesn’t get too high, which I’m really happy about. The next thing I’ll be testing is how this new iMac performs to the older one. In regards to video editing, I’ll be testing both final cut and premiere pros.

If you want to see that article,And so you don’t miss out on that. If you want to see what’s been updated to this new computer, I have a link in the article description, which is an article that I wrote. And this is a very simple, laid out explanation on what’s new and what’s been updated and what changes they have made. So you guys could check that out.

And if you want to know the optimal recommendation for a five K IMAX you don’t spend.

Too little and not get the performance and you don’t overspend. I have coupling sort of a description as well to the model that I would buy and the ram that I would buy. So you guys make sure to check that out. It’s the same exact model that you guys see here.

Thank you guys for watching. This article has been helpful to you. Definitely. Give me a thumbs up when you have any questions you guys can ask.

That and the article description below. And if you would think this aricle would help somebody else make a decision. Definitely send them a link. You guys can share that article. So I will see you guys in the next one.

Comparing To Macbook Pro With Vega 20

Comparing To Macbook Pro With Vega 20
Comparing To Macbook Pro With Vega 20

Hey, guys,We’re going to be taking a look at and comparing to MacBook pros. Both of them are new models with vigor, 20 graphics.

One of them has an ICE seven processor and the other one has the eye nine, which costs three hundred dollars more. And we’re going to see, is it worth spending that extra money and find out which one is the best bang for the buck.

Now, I previously tested the I9 model and I compared it to with other graphics cards and the other to see what kind of a difference we got. So if you want to check that out, you can click the card above and see that article. But in this one, I want to see.

Does the processor make a difference? No. If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that Apple refresh these MacBook pros in middle 2018, they put in six core processors.

They gave us stability, have 32 gigabytes of RAM. So that was really nice.

But there was a big controversy, especially with the I9 overheating. And I did a bunch of tests and comparisons and saw that there was no difference in going with AI seven or the I9 processor. So spending 300 bucks action. In fact, in some tests it was actually slower. So we spend more money and get worse performance.

Now that’s because of thermal throttling, meaning the chips can’t run at their full speeds because they get too hot. Fast forward to today.

The question we’re answering is now with the Veiga 20 graphics that are much more powerful is a huge improvement over what we previously had. And these graphics are actually more efficient. So they put out less heat.

Now, is it worth getting in the I9 process? I really care about best bang for the bucks.

We’re going to take a look at a wide variety of some benchmarks and some article editing tests with both final cut from your pro ends of Inchy resolve. I’ll show you guys the differences that we saw or differences that we didn’t see.

And at the end, I’ll talk a little bit about some suggestions for those you guys who don’t want to spend this much money on MacBook Pro. All right, guys, let’s jump into it.

And we’re starting off with Geek Bench for C.P.U tests here and single core. The I9 is 11 percent faster and in the multicore. So this is six course here. We’re getting nine percent faster results.

Now, let’s take a look at sentiment. Are 15, which is a rendering benchmark, more in line with video editing. It’s just testing out the C.P.U.

I did five runs and I averaged it out to get an accurate result in here at I9.

Model gets an eight percent higher score and it finishes off the fifth run, running at three point to five gigahertz compared to three point one. So, yes, we are getting more performance out of the I9 and this is a bigger difference than we saw in the past, most likely due to some upgrades in cooling or maybe the Veiga graphics cards.

Even when it’s idling here in this test, it gives it a little bit more headroom than we had in the past. So next, we’re gonna jump into some real world video editing results and see how these improvements and C.P.U and these new much better graphics are going to work together and see what kind of a difference we get.

But before that, I want to give a big shout out to our sponsor for this article, and that is Skillshare.

Skillshare is an online learning community for creators with more than twenty five thousand classes and videography, photography, business and more.

It’s available on Android and iPhone with the ability to download any course for offline viewing. So stop wasting time playing Candy Crush and expand your skills with Skillshare.

I’m checking out the new DaVinci result. Fifteen color grading and correction class, which is really helpful. They also have a ton of filmmaking, drone and video editing classes. Skillshare is hooking it up and giving away a free two month and limited access trial to the first 500 people who click the link in the description box.

And after that, it’s only about ten dollars a month. I highly recommend joining the seven million members, getting access to twenty five thousand classes and stepping up your game in 2019.

All right, guys, we’re going to start out with Bruce Sachs, which is just available and final cut.

And I don’t always show the results to Bruce X because it mainly tests the graphics. But here we see a difference of zero seconds. We have 48 seconds for both laptops. No difference whatsoever.

Now, let’s jump into stabilizing a twenty second four K clip in final cut, both laptops at the same exact amount of time and that is just eight seconds.

That is blazing fast. The Veiga twenty graphics card in this Mac program really makes a huge difference. To give you guys a reference point, the Mac pro takes six point five seconds.

So this thing is so close. By the way, if you guys want to see a comparison of the Veiga 20 Mac GoPro against the nine Mac Pro. Click the subscribe button and enable those notifications and you guys will get to see that article.

I definitely think you guys want to check that out now with the other two programs here and the venture resolve. We have 18 seconds, which is also a very, very fast, very impressive, but the same amount of time.

And in premier pro AI seven model, the three hundred dollar cheaper model takes two seconds longer to render. This takes way longer. Yes, you save two seconds. So Veiga 20 makes a huge difference.

I seven reverse I9 does not make a huge difference yet.

Now let’s jump into a five minute fork project with two Lutts in film grain applied in final cut. The AI seven is two seconds slower. Individual resolve we see. Eleven seconds slower in in premier pro, we get I don’t know, what is this? Thirteen, twelve seconds slower.

So, yes, we’re seeing a tiny bit of a difference, but a really is negligible.

And as far as timeline smoothness, when you’re editing, there is no difference. Tonalist make it a little bit harder. We’re gonna go in and test out Cannan Cinema Raw Light footage from the C 200. This thing is very difficult.

So here you guys see the results for Final Cut for DaVinci Resolve and for Premier Pro. So once again, the Iceman model is very, very slightly slower.

And if we look at timeline, performance and final cut, both laptops were able to playback this graded footage at 30 frames per seconds and resolve. Both of them played it back at about 34 frames per second.

So as far as a timeline performance, there was no difference.

Now, finally, let’s finish off with 4.5 cave red raw footage. This is graded in in our previous comparison with a 560 X in our 555 X, the I9 was actually the slowest. Because when this test, we’re pushing the graphics card and the C.P.U to the limits and the I9 had to throttle down.

So even though is the most expensive. It was slower than even the base model MacBook Pro, that costs thousands less. So here, thankfully, with the Veiga 20 graphics, it’s more efficient. Now, if you bought the most expensive MacBook Pro, it’s not the slowest. It is the fastest, but not by much.

In final cut, we saved about 10 seconds in the resolve. We saved about nine seconds.

And then premier pro, we saved about 19 seconds. So once again, basically we’re seeing a trend here. Yes, it’s slightly faster, but the difference is very, very minor. And as far as the timeline performance, it is basically the same.

I do want to point out the frequencies that these laptops were running at.

At the end of our render and final cut, the I9 model was running at two point nine gigahertz, whereas the seven models running at two point eight five gigahertz. So that’s a small sliver of a difference for seeing.

So here the AI seven actually has enough thermal headroom to run faster than the base, whereas AI nine is running at the base. I want to point out that this I9 chip is actually a very nice ship. It’s very powerful, but Apple should not be selling it in a lot of the Sofiane and so light. Obviously they could do their own testing.

They have so much employees. They know that this ship is not capable of running at those speeds. So I really wish they weren’t selling us I9.

I think a lot of people are buying it and they don’t know the difference.

There’s not a lot people testing and talking about this,Like I said, it is not worth getting I9 model now for the rest of you guys. I also want to throw in as far as best bang for the buck. What should you go for? First off, if you’re not getting the Veiga graphics, get the base two point two gigahertz processor.

It runs up almost the same speeds as these other processors. You’re going to upgrade anything. The first thing that I would upgrade if you do video editing is a graphics upgrade to the 560 or if you can afford it.

The Veiga 20. Of course, that jumps up your price and you have to get the two point sixty gigahertz ie seven and then upgrade storage, whatever else you need.

And the C.P.U keep it either at the base if you’re not going with the Veiga graphics or the two point six gigahertz ie seven if you are going with the Vacher graphics. I think that’s how you optimize your laptop and get the best bang for the buck.

But if you’re not doing very heavy video editing, like see 200 other raw footage really pushing a lot of effects in layers. Just go for the base MacBook Pro and I think you guys will be happy, especially if you’re using final cut. So thank you guys for watching.

The Brand New Hero For Black Edition

The Brand New Hero For Black Edition
The Brand New Hero For Black Edition

Hey, guys, And in this article, I’m going to be comparing the brand new hero for Black Edition with the older flagship, the Hero three plus black edition. Now, a lot of specs were thrown out a lot and features with a new GoPro.

One thing, though, was not mentioned was battery life.

Now, the new hero for has a slightly smaller battery, 11, 60 compared to eleven, 80 million hours. And as you see, this is the three plus here with a standard type of setup. Pop the battery in the back. Through that little plastic, flimsy cover, they always could easily get lost.

Basically, this is one improvement with the battery is that we’re gonna have a different compartment, as you guys will see here. Now we have the different shape of a battery.

It’s slightly smaller and we have this little spring loaded battery door at the bottom of the GoPro, which is much more convenient.

You don’t lose that little cover. Easier to open, easier to deal with, with.

But what do we get as far as battery life? Now, I’m going to be doing a head to head test and I’m using the 10 ADP setting that 30 frames per second super view.

I didn’t want to use the Fourcade because it’d be an unfair advantage to the hero three plus because I’m sure the forecast takes more processing power with all the extra pixels. But go ahead and start it.

And one thing I want to mention is I’m using 16 gay cards, which I’ll have to reset towards the end because they only hold about an hour with the data.

But that was quick. Reformat the cards and I keep them running. And the timer in the center is just recording the total amount of footage time, basically recording not that little tiny gap of stand by.

So you guys will be able to see that. I’m going to go and fast forward it and we’ll see what these cameras get. Once again, they’re fully charged at startup, both 16 gay cards.

Now, as they fast forward, you’ll see here at the six minute mark 633, the GoPro for actually drops one of the bars, which was really, really interesting and takes a little bit until the three plus drops it. Right.

About nineteen thirty eight is when one bargain’s dropped.

Now, shortly after that, we’re going to have another bar dropped on the Hero four. Now this is already getting me slightly worried when I saw that. So actually at 36 minutes we have another bar drop on the Hero four. And the other one is still going fine.

And another really interesting thing that really got me even more worried, as you’ll see right now, is the hero four is actually going to drop another bar before the hero three drops a second one. Here we go.

Where I zero bars at one hour and three minutes. And that was me swapping out the cards.

So it actually an hour and eleven is when one extra bargain’s you dropped in the three plus one hour 17 is we’re out of battery life completely on the hero four.

So that’s what we got. One hour, 17 minutes. And then you see the hero, three plus is still going strong. We’re almost at a minute, 40. It’s still doing fairly well. There we go. A minute and forty two is what we got on the hero.

Three plus. So basically, my takeaway is the reason they didn’t mention battery life and this is just my first test is because the hero three plus is better.

The Hero four is less efficient. It’s almost like we’ve got to step back. The hero three plus had a 30 percent increase. The battery life over the hero three and a hero for looks like it went back about 30 percent. So thank you guys for watching this article.

Give this article a thumbs up if you enjoyed it. And if you guys have any questions or comments, make sure to comment below. I will definitely get back to you guys. Let me know what you think.

I will have more testing in the future and a final verdict once I have more time to mess with this camera. And who knows, maybe it’ll get a little bit better. Maybe not. We shall see. All right, guys, thanks for watching this article.
