4K Raw camera for everyone

Intro: Technology advances more because of the economic growing ambition from enterprises than the real needs of the final customer, and maybe for that reason, 4K is here now. Anyway, whatever the reason, 4K TV or UHDTV is arriving to stores now, and that means TV with 3840x2160pixels. In the last months, the main audiovisual brands have started to introduce their 4K cameras in fairs like NAB. From traditional companies like Sony with their F5 and F55, to the recently created Blackmagic, have bet on the 4K technology as a quality standard in image capture for 2013. There isn’t any...

Shooting RX1CELAND

When I put my hands on the little Sony RX1 for the first time, I didn`t think that it was going to be the main camera to shoot one of my videos. Much less if I required very high technical performance for time-lapse footage of northern lights, video at 50 fps a slider, etc.. The Sony RX1 is undoubtedly a very special camera, due to its Full Frame sensor 24 x 36 mm, its 35mm fixed lens and its small size, it has been designed to become the perfect companion for the photo-journalist and social photographer. I do not think Sony’s engineers’ plan was for this camera to be used for...

Shooting “The Maghreb”

The Maghreb from Enrique Pacheco on Vimeo. When I decided to go to Morocco to film “The Maghreb”, I knew I would need gear that could cover all situations that I’d find in a country with so many possibilities. I needed at least two good DSLR for the time-lapses, many of them at night, and a camcorder that allowed me to record at a high frame rate to get slow motion footage. I also needed a motorized slider, a stabilizer and of course a good set of lenses. In the next post I will describe what I chose and more importantly, why I chose this equipment and how I used it. DSLR...

The Maghreb, episode 2 (The Journey)

In this episode of what will be a trilogy about my adventure in Morocco, I will describe the path I followed along the Maghreb territory. I will give an overview from my arrival to the country via ferry from Tanger to the desert of Erg Chebbi, near the border of Algeria. I will describe the fantastic landscapes and the culture on these places and illustrate the story with photos. Fes, Capital of Islam. The first stop on my trip, and one of the great attractions of it, was the city of Fes. This imperial city is the capital of Islam in Morocco, as well as religious and cultural center of the...
