Our hardware wish list

This is what we are in need of right now for reviews and current and future projects.

These lists may be useful in building your own photography and video production gear lists.

Super 35/APS-C for photography and video production

The promise of hybrid mirrorless cameras was that they would be as useful for photography as for cinematography and more affordable than dedicated cinema cameras while approaching their image quality.

Fujifilm has come close to delivering on that promise but as with all new cameras the company needs to work on a couple of weak points, the X-H2S’ in-body image stabilization aka IBIS and scopes for video production.

For years we asked Fujifilm to learn lessons about video production cameras from Panasonic and now Fujifilm has surpassed Panasonic in stills and autofocus but its IBIS and scopes remain weak or nonexistent.

Micro Four Thirds for video production

With the exception of its depth-from-defocus aka DFD autofocus, Panasonic keeps getting it right for video production functionality as well as with its 10-25mm and 25-50mm zoom lenses.

Panasonic seems to have given up on compact M43 cameras for stills photography with no pro-quality successors to the popular GX8 and G9 in sight.

Perhaps Panasonic’s intention is that its 35mm sensor S-Series cameras will be more for stills photography as well as video production while its M43 cameras will primarily be for video.

Current generation Ninja V and V+ monitor/recorders have a screen brightness of 1000 nits which can be borderline for working in bright Australian sunlight so we’re looking forward to a probable increase to between 1500 and 2200 nits in the next generation.

Why Hardware?

Digital cameras, lenses and accessories don’t last anywhere near as long as analog film equipment used to.

During my magazine and newspaper photography career, I often relied on decades-old secondhand gear as well as new purchases I could expect to endure and retain their resale value years into the future.

The equipment we use now is in constant development and improvement to catch up with ever-changing standards and expectations.

The computers, storage media and media storage we use for processing our work last only so long, and constantly improving software keeps demanding more and more memory, storage space and processing power.

Current offerings by camera and lens makers are full of gaps with, for example, lens focal lengths and types essential for certain genres still missing from those makers’ lens road maps.

Websites like Unititled.Net play a role in communicating to lens and camera makers the new gear that we need and the old gear that needs updating.

With digital technology still being relatively new, camera makers continue to research, innovate and update each subsequent generation of cameras, with their video capabilities being a case in point.

The same principle even applies to such apparently mundane items as tripods, bags and audio recording equipment.

Photography and video production have become one-person band occupations, with practitioners needing to take on every task and be well-equipped enough to do them to professional standards, so makers of these items have been radically rethinking, redesigning and innovating.
