HiViz LED Lighting out of Hendersonville, NC needed to produce a floor to ceiling, 224″ long mural showcasing their FireTech line … Read More →

Capture One 12 – Tested & Approved

CI-TECH_CaptureOne12_approved*

New interface  Capture One 12 introduces a new and decluttered “super flat” UI, designed primarily to make Capture One easier to use over long editing sessions. Revised iconography helps to explain basic functionality for new users. The Menu system and equivalent application functions are now also more closely aligned to help aid discovery.  (meh.  I’ve always liked the way Capture One looked.  Maybe in version 12.2 we’ll get ‘classic’ mode) … Read More →

ALPA_Silex_Featured

As covered previously in Copal Shutter Care & Alternatives, we are at a turning point for the use of the Schneider & Rodenstock optics used on technical cameras, with their purely mechanical Copal-0 shutters working like little gear & spring timepieces that are now (and have been) out of production and are in dwindling supply for new installations and repairs, forcing us to contemplate what’s next in technical camera shooting.
