Sony's RGB and S-Log upgrade option for the F3 is now shipping. At AbelCine, we've had the upgrade for some time; you may remember the video that we helped produce at NAB that showed off the camera's S-Log capabilities. I get many questions about this new option and what exactly it changes in the camera, so I am putting together a three-part video series on the topic.

After using Zacuto's Gratical EVF on a few shoots recently, I wanted to take a more in-depth look at the exposure tools and LUT functions that can be extremely valuable on set. I already knew I liked the versatility of the viewfinder and the user-friendly interface, but I wanted to see how these advanced tools could benefit my image and my set.

It wasn't too long ago that we posted about Blackmagic Design's big update to DaVinci Resolve 10, and now version 10.1 has been released. This update brings with it some interesting new features that will surely be appreciated - namely, better XML support for Final Cut Pro and a number of enhanced editing tools.

Users can now align multiple camera takes while editing, which simplifies the process of previewing multiple shot options. Other improvements include the ability to easily copy clips via drag-and-drop, and support for trimming frame-based clips such as DNG and DPX.

In the previous version of Resolve, some users ran into problems when working with FCP and XML imports. Blackmagic has definitely put some thought into this for the newest version: 10.1 includes XML import enhancements for both FCP X 10.1 and FCP 7. Compound clips from FCP X 10.1 with separate A/V elements are now split into individual clips, and imported FCP 7 XMLs now include timeline markers and font properties. Things like sizing, cropping, and composition parameters all translate accurately into the Resolve timeline, which is especially helpful for those editors who need to reframe large-sensor media.

For a full list of all the new features, visit Blackmagic Design's site. Existing DaVinci Resolve customers can update directly to 10.1 and, of course, Resolve Lite is still available as a free download. If you want to learn more about using Resolve, check out Den Lennie's online workshop DaVinci Resolve for Cinematographers.
