Our review of the Sony FX9

New review up. This time of the Sony PWX-FX9. The 6K sensor full frame successor to the FS7. We look at everything from colour to usability, to the changes Sony are bringing to the camera later this year. If you’ve been considering an upgrade, or even thinking about this as your first cinema camera. This is the review to watch, especially if you’re based in Ireland. Please share with anyone you think might be interested. Paul Lynch and myself put absolutely tonnes of work into exploring every aspect of the camera. Trying to answer the question as much for ourselves as for you, is this the camera you should buy next?

Sony’s latest powerhouse production camera, his full frame beast follows up on the success of the FS7, which has become the go to camera for documentary and corporate shooters. Is this a worthy successor to the much loved FS7? What do its new features – like autofocus, full frame shooting, and S-Cinetone bring to the table? All this and more answered, in our comprehensive review.

A Year with the Black Magic Pocket 4K

We’ve spent a year getting to know this small but mighty camera. We’ve shot around Europe and the US, on both corporate and music videos. Just what makes the Pocket 4K and it’s big brother the Pocket 6K different? What do you need to use these cameras? Can they replace production cameras? Can they be used for run and gun vlogging? Answers to all these questions and more.

This is the first episode in a new series of camera and camera gear reviews, aimed at videographers and editors in Ireland

No More Workhorse Review

war

Generally, I can’t abide criticism. Outside of academia, it serves little function beyond banal consumer recommendation. However, my principles won’t get me free cinema tickets, now will they? Here’s my first wee report for No More Workhorse.

Todd Phillips made a career out of fusing comedy with ‘high concept’ action, raking in a fortune from the Hangover trilogy. Hill transcended gross out comedy to earn an Oscar nomination for his outsized role in Scorsese’s Wolf of Wall Street. Teller, hazed in a series of frat house comedies, gained attention for his turn in critical darling ‘Whiplash’. So can the Philips succeed in wringing engaging and humorous performances from such promising leads?

An History Of Things What Has (not) Happened

ryan

This piece was published in the latest issue of ‘The Runt‘, a Dublin comic literary zine. The theme of the issues was ‘alternate history’.

There is many of the things in the past better than todays. Oh yes. Some are evil worse too (✈__✈ █ █ ▄ ). It is starting to look as this is the beginning of history. Imagine, far future there will still be moar to come. But some have not happened that could have happened, and it is those which i wrote. This is what we call alternut history. An imagination of the way things could have be if but for a few other differences in the past. For example Hitler was Julian Seasalt or imagine if the dinosaurs live at the same time as for example films are set.

Some things haven’t happened.

1 What if we make the moon? What then.

2 Imagine for a minute Ronald Regan, but he is Seth Rogan

3 Never Land

4 Characters come to live from books

Fife. Whether or not you believe it – a magic energy inside all people, and plants, the same. It’s name is Juice. Can’t in plate that four minutes.

There are stories men have write, and yes women! In these stories contain dreams, events, places, people, lives, incredible events, animals that never were as if they been. I explain some of these books in briefs.

The Man in the High Castle

The tail of a greatest king of Charlie Maine. Once a night, he ends up more than a man, but almost less than a dragon. In this version, he a taxi driver but still dreams of his past to come.

In the Presence of Mine Enemies

This book is my favourites. So many differents from today. One man has the phenomena agility to see invisible. When a clock commits a crime, she’s arrested in the nick of time. But in many case people seem to have less of time because they are so so busy. An ill wind blows no good to any when things become just all over the place in this post-apoplectic soz I ate e.

Fatherland

An offensive book about Men, sexist harassmen if I may take a quick joke. But serious in this book they have the hole country and it is not good let me tell you. They make a hams fist of the whole meal. Tell won woman makes them do things right, she is play by Helen Mirren. Thus is simpler to Ma Gorratwood.

Years of Salt and Rice

This wons not god.

So you’re welcome for that short strip in through long shelf that is alternatives to what weave gott. Some seam likely. Most can’t be unpicked. Knit not all! I dare say that we will surprise in future by coincidence when made up things happen. Marked by words, just sea.

Dear edit my smell cheque is a boken. Please move my mist rake, ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
