Beholder Gimbal By Ko Maruyama ikan has looked at the most common cameras that photographers use and given us the Beholder Gimbal.

Depending on what you shoot with, some lenses may not offer a perfect balance. The rig is small enough to take with you everywhere you want to shoot video with your DSLR. ...Read More »

NVIDIA introduces DesignWorks By Ko Maruyama NVIDIA has always been about visual computing. We often think of them as the video card and hardware company to make display and rendering happen (I accidentally typed 'happy' before editing it).

Not hardware, the DesignWorks announcement brings an array of new software tools. ...Read More »

Ollo Clip 4:1 By Ko Maruyama Ollo Clip for iPhone 6 : Road to NAB 2014 iPhone Production This year, a small team and I will be trying something completely different. Rather than relying on the heavy duty gear that we've used in the past, our production is shifting to mobile. Completely mobile. That means iPhones and iPads. It means we can deliver quickly, but the smaller gear is also more difficult to control and protect. But to get a good picture, I had to look for some lens alternatives. Turns out Olloclip 4:1 was the answer. ...Read More »
