This insane editing machine supports four Nvidia Quadro GPUs, 2 Xeon CPUs, 1.5TB RAM and can cost over $100,000

Sometimes, the video editing and visual effects jobs we get can demand some pretty hardcore specs for maximum performance. While we were at NAB 2019, we spotted a PC on the ASUS stand that definitely seemed to have specs that fall under that “hardcore” category. We spoke with ASUS to find out more.

Laowa gets serious about video with 25-100mm T2.9 and 12mm T2.9 cinema lenses

Although Laowa does make a cinema mod version of their crazy 24mm f/14 Probe lens, they’re not really known for their cinema lenses. Because they haven’t really made any, until now. At NAB 2019, we saw a couple of pretty cool new lenses on the Laowa stand. 12mm T2.9 prime and a 25-100mm T2.9 zoom cinema […] The post Laowa gets serious about video with 25-100mm T2.9 and 12mm T2.9 cinema lenses appeared first on DIY Photography.

This long term timelapse camera can run for a month off four AA batteries

Timelapse is a subject that many photographers and filmmakers have tried. But sometimes, a couple of hours just isn’t long enough to shoot the sequence that you really need. In construction, for example, you might need to keep shooting for up to a month, or even more. The Afidus ATL-200 from TimeLapseCameras is one solution to […] The post This long term timelapse camera can run for a month off four AA batteries appeared first on DIY Photography.

Feelworld upgrades the F6 field monitor with a touchscreen UI in the new F6 Plus

Feelworld’s range of entry-level monitors have become quite popular over the last couple of years. Although they don’t offer all the bells and whistles we might find on monitors from Aputure and SmallHD, they’re plenty good enough for many hybrid shooters and specific use cases where those bells and whistles might be overkill.

The Core SWX Powerbase Edge wants to power all of your photo and video devices on location

One of the biggest issues for photographers and filmmakers working on location is that of power. Many of us carry spare batteries of multiple kinds in our bags whenever we go out to shoot – for me, that’s usually 6 batteries each for 2 cameras, a couple of big USB power banks and my Novoo.

The ASUS ProArt PQ22UC is the world’s first portable 4K OLED 10-Bit HDR dislay

ASUS hasn’t traditionally been the first name photographers and video editors turn towards when it comes to monitors.
