But for most other things, he still prefers the 6D Mark II ($1,499) and EOS-1D X Mark II ($5,499), because he loves Canon's "color profile." He says he also appreciates the form factor of Panasonic's Lumix cameras and that flip-out screens are a must for any YouTube creator. That's actually the biggest complaint that many of the YouTubers I spoke to had -- that Sony's full-frame mirrorless cameras lack a flip-out LCD. But their hope is that the company will take that feature into consideration in future models.Of course, with Neistat being one of the biggest YouTube creators, people looking to break into the space value his advice. For those who want to start a channel, he says he'd recommend Canon's EOS 70D or … [Read more...] about The cameras YouTubers love

The football playoffs leading up to the Superbowl always attract new TV viewers to the games. The first-timers are made up of novice fans, significant others who don’t want to pass the time alone, and people who show up with the beer and the wings. When the TV football commentators start talking, newbies quickly realize they have no clue about what they’re hearing. This year the NFL Media’s Digital Lab team stepped up to help decipher football terminology with a new Alexa skill, USA Today reports. The Rookie’s Guide to the NFL skill explains the terms, football slang, and jargon.

What’s in your bag? is a recurring feature where we ask people to tell us a bit more about their everyday gadgets by opening their bags and hearts to us. This week, we’re featuring tech YouTuber MKBHD. Marques Brownlee’s tech videos are known for their sharp and polished look, and that extends to Brownlee and his studio, too. When we arrive, he’s already waiting to take us up to his studio, a spacious room with an array of neatly organized equipment. He even offers our video team some lights as they set up. Brownlee started making YouTube videos in high school, and 10 years later, at the age of 25, his channel MKBHD is one of the most popular tech destinations on the site, with over 7 million subscribers and a billion total video views. Every January, it’s a tradition for Brownlee (and the rest of the tech press) to head to Las Vegas for the Consumer Electronics Show, and we dropped by his studio in Kearny, New Jersey, to see how he’s getting ready. … [Read more...] about What’s in your bag, Marques Brownlee?
MiniDV. Final Cut Pro. Canon EOS 5D Mark II. In their time, each of these products changed the way we create digital video, repainting the canvas of the industry in broad strokes. Time and time again, the bar for entry to professional motion production has been lowered thanks to such revolutionary technologies. Today’s film students have access to tools that yesterday’s professionals only dreamt about, and it’s only getting better. But where Canon’s success with the 5D Mark II as a video camera was largely a fluke, there’s another manufacturer that has been working on the purposeful democratization of high-end video production: Blackmagic Design. Since its first Cinema Camera in 2012, the Australian company has continued to push costs down while blurring the lines between consumer and professional products. Its newest camera, the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K (or BMPCC 4K, for those in the know), is the latest example of this, bringing a staggering … [Read more...] about Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 4K review
