It’s common knowledge that back in 1894 – 1929 silent movies were all the rage, this was because sound couldn’t be synchronised with videos. In these films, the dialogue was shown with their gestures, miming and title cards. More and more you’ll find many videos on Facebook are doing this too. This is because Facebook has the ability to show users videos without the sound, which has made many brands and videographers find ways to interact and captivate viewers without the need for sound.

Creating a fluid and stable shot is essential to a lot of our work. We have used different methods of stabilisation over the years which mechanically isolates the operator’s movement, allowing for a smooth shot, even when the camera moves over an irregular surface. Big innovations have been motorised gimbals which electrically stabilise the movement in real time. Simply put, a gimbal is a pivot point that allows rotation along a single axis. Combine three separate gimbals to allow rotation along three different axes and you have a 3-axis gimbal — and an excellent tool for achieving silky-smooth, handheld video. In the never-ending quest to achieve smooth handheld video, a Read moreMore Details
The Lytro Cinema Camera could be the most groundbreaking development in cinematography since colour motion picture film. Since Lytro first teased their Cinema Camera earlier this month, articles have been written. Press conferences were held.

On its own, it would be a supreme technical accomplishment to develop a Read moreMore Details
