Video: Drones

     Today, we will be talking about drones and the different types. Drone: A  remote-controlled pilotless aircraft or small flying device.     The first type of drone is a consumer drone. A consumer drone  is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) designed for the mass market, meaning, the public can get their hands on these drones for not a lot of money. DJI  is the leader in this space, making nice, good quality drones for consumer and professionals. Some of their lineup includes: The DJI Mavic line, making the DJI Mavic 3 , DJI Mavic 2 , DJI Mavic Pro , and the DJI Mavic Platinum . They also make the Air line, Mini line, Spark line, and FPV line.      The next category is Commercial or  Professional. Once again, DJI is the winner in this space. These drones are made for video production and other big services that need bigger drones. Their p rofessional drones include, the Phantom line and Inspire line.      Another category of drones is FPV. FPV or First-Person view is a differen

Video: Cameras

    Today, we will be talking about cameras. It's gonna be like a buyers guide. We will talk through the top-of-the-line cameras money can buy. I'm gonna sort it by brand and there top cameras.     First, we have Canon.  Canon has been known for pioneering innovative imaging products. One of the world's largest manufacturers of cameras, the company maintains its leadership position by continuously innovating new features and technologies.      1. The Canon EOS R3:  Built for speed, versatility, and reliability, the Canon EOS R3 combines the technology from their mirrorless EOS R system with the robustness and performance you'd expect from a flagship DSLR. Revolving around a new full-frame stacked sensor, updated AF performance, and refined body design, the EOS R3 is first 3-Series camera since the film era and plants itself as a fast-shooting, flexible, and contemporary mirrorless camera. The R3 is jam packed with top of the line specs: Full-Frame Stacked Sensor and DIG

Photo & Video: Lenses

          Before you go out and shoot, you need to have lenses to actually take the videos and pictures you want. I will go through the 4 lenses every videographer and photographer should have in their bag.            1. 16-35mm f2.8: The perfect lenses for a YouTube vlogger, portrait photographer, and real estate videographer and/or photographer. Not too wide, not too narrow, just right. Price: $2,199.00 or a slower (f4) for $1,099.00          2. 24-70mm f2.8: The do-it-all lens. The perfect lens for anyone getting started. Best for portraits, landscape, and product videos. Just the right amount of range of focal lengths. Price: $1,899.00 or a slower one for $ 589.00          3. 70-200mm f2.8: The longer, sniper lens. Get in close to the action with this lens. Best for landscapes, sports photos and videos, and action shots. Price: $ 1,179.00 or a slower one for $596.00          4. 50mm f1.8: The nifty-fifty. Open the aperture  way up to f1.8 and get super shallow depth of field and

Photo & Video: Aperture

    Today, we will be talking about a perture (f stop). The definition of aperture is: A space through which light passes in an optical or photographic instrument, especially the variable opening by which light enters a camera.      Aperture is a variable way to change how much light is hitting the sensor of the camera. If you have the aperture wide open at, lets say f1.8, it will let a ton of light to the sensor and make the image brighter without your ISO being to high or your shutter speed  being to low. Another advantage of your aperture being low, your background will be blurry and add a bit of depth in the picture and makes it feel more 3D. Knowing how to adjust your aperture (and all your settings) on the fly can help your pictures and videos look more cinematic and professional. Below is a picture of what the aperture blades look like at different apertures: See you tomorrow for a blog about lenses! -Parker Johnson Sources: Image:

Video: Frame Rate and Shutter Speed

     Today, we will be talking about f rame rate and shutter speed. Frame rate: The frequency at which frames in a television picture, film, or video sequence are displayed.  Shutter Speed: T he time for which a shutter is open at a given setting.      First, we will be talking about frame rate. the abbreviation for frame rate is FPS or Frames Per Second. Frame rate is basically how many pictures (or still frames) your camera is taking in a second. 23.976 or 24 FPS is what almost all movies and TV shows are filmed. 23.976 or 24 FPS is also the most cinematic. Most YouTube videos you watch are about 30 or 60 FPS. What's the difference? The difference is how the image looks. T he main difference between each being the number of frames captured per second, the higher the frame rate, the slower the video is. The Slow Mo Guys have an awesome YouTube channel and all they do is... you guessed it, Slow Mo. But, if I'm shooting in 24 FPS, my video will be faster? No, it will be the sam
