Are you in New York City? Have you seen this photo on display, perhaps in Hastings on Hudson? Supposedly it hangs as a huge banner display on a street somewhere in a commercial district, but New York is a pretty big city, and I have no further info.
It’s my photo, but I know nearly nothing about the public art group displaying it, and only recently heard the jungle drums that it was actually displayed there (I gave my permission to someone a year ago – that someone is not able to provide me with useful info regarding the art group ‘Public Art in Hastings’ – and no amount of googling helps me either). Anyway, if you have seen this or come by, let me know, grab a picture, will you?

There’s a new abbreviation to get accustomed to – DSMC: Digital Stills Movie Camera. With the merger of professional stills and professional video in DSLR-like bodies, we have a ‘new’ medium.
Red Scarlett modular
RED is an innovative camera company run by Jim Jannard. The previous flagship, RED One, was a revolution in digital movie capture, allowing RAW video footage (yes, just like RAW stills). Now Red has announced a whole new line of Digital Stills Movie Cameras, including the Epic and Scarlett systems. The systems are modular and interchangeable, for instance, you are able to use both Nikon and Canon glass. And the chips goes from 3k to a whopping 28k! in size.
Michael Reichmann of Luminous Landscape gives us the lowdown on this new line of gear.

Here’s another teaser video shot with a Canon 5D Mark II.
Many photographers whine about the video feature of this camera – ‘We don’t need no stinkin’ video’ – ‘Video is for consumer cams’ etc. etc.
I believe these people are in a dark hole. Stop being conservative and start being creative!
I don’t have much video experience (yet!), but I know that a video chip of this size is any videographers wet dream. Couple that with the ability to use Canon L glass and you’ve got a mean video machine, with certain shortcomings ofcourse (AF being one), but many more advantages.
David Michaud has posted a new video recorded with the 5D Mark II. Take a look.
