Since Apple added HEVC 10-bit 4:2:2 to Compressor, we thought we'd look into how it impacts memory pressure on our M1 Max MacBook Pro with 32GB RAM. For the test, all apps were closed except for Final Cut Pro, Compressor and the Activity Monitor. We transcoded a one-minute ProRes RAW clip with minimal noise reduction... Continue Reading →

One of the twenty-eight classes I teach each week in Ho Chi Minh City. I consider myself lucky, since many foreigners had to leave the country because of tightened restrictions on visas or loss of employment opportunities, including a large community of Ukranians.

There are just too many features, like burst rates, pixel shift, auto bracketing, EVF resolution, stills RAW formats and dozens... Continue Reading →
Not only does Faruk Korkmaz set the bar when it comes to gorgeous looking reviews, he also addresses our most pressing concern from the very start - which is how fast the computer can transcode footage to HEVC 10-bit in Apple Compressor. As it turns out, the Mac Studio finished the job around 80% faster... Continue Reading →
Last year, we reached out to Atomos to ask why they didn’t upload more HDR content to their YouTube channel and they replied that not all projects are suited to HDR. Which is patently false: the video doesn’t exist whose image quality cannot be dramatically improved by mastering and uploading to YouTube in HDR.
It's there, but it's much less pronounced than it was on the Asus ProArt PA32UCX and as usual, it looks worse from an angle than when viewed head-on.
It's easy to get bogged down when comparing all the features offered by Canon's cameras but the task becomes much simpler when approaching the question purely from the perspective of HDR, for which the camera must meet a minimum of three criteria: low noise, thirteen stops of dynamic range and offer raw recording (either internally...
