The Powerful and Next Generation 4k Cameras

Several companies have worked so hard to stay in the market and this can be attributed drastic changes in technology. One of the changes that have notably changed film and photography industry is the introduction and the use of 4K resolution. This technology refers to a device having horizontal resolution on the order of 4000 pixels.

Initially this the 4K technology was only used in television set but this has since changed with cameras also embracing it and trying to outdo one another so as to stand out and have a command of the larger market share.

One of the brands that has embraced this technology and took it to another level is the Black Design production camera 4K. This camera is one of the best cameras that can be used for ultra HD 4K production. Due to its highly advanced technology the camera comes packed nicely in one compact build with its powerful super 35mm image sensor being its key selling point. It is also accompanied with EF compatible lens mount which are flexible. This camera has a built in touch screen which enables you to have an easy to manage the camera settings. Its audio system is one of its kinds as it captures audio into the ProRes video files. This will turn help you save time that you would have used in post production audio synching. Black Design is tough enough given that its body is made of aluminum and its compact nature also acts as an added advantage too.

Another camera that has come closer to Black Design is the Panasonic GH4.This camera can easily handle giving the best 4K images and videos. When looking for a camera that can promise on image resolution, processing power and video format then this is the camera to go for. It is good for both professional and amateur photographers since it’s easy to use. This camera is able to produce the best quality of raw images because of its 16.05 megapixel MOS sensor which combines with Venus Engine 4 CPU processor to see perfection is met. These are among the best 4k video camera.

Other brands like Leica D-LUX, Sony Alpha a7s Compact, Gopro HERO4 and Canon EOS 1d-c 4K have embraced the 4K resolution technology. This can also be attributed to the fact they want to keep at pace with other brands and to see that the costumers has a variety to choose from. This is encouraging and we are yet to see more companies get in the industry.

The Xbox One and PlayStation 4  showed up about a year ago. Both of these consoles had to deal with various launch problems together with building their game libraries. If you are looking for a new video game system The Xbox One and PlayStation 4  are the frontrunners of the current generation.  In this article we are going to put Xbox One and PS4 against each other to determine which system comes out on top. Also, from a board game play perspective, we shouldn’t forget to mention Nintendo Wii, but for now we will focus on the two big technical powerhouses of this generation

The price is almost the same so let’s say the systems are tied. Microsoft has launched a Kinect-free version of the Xbox One and it is the same price as PS$ and that is $400. The price will change a bit if we look at the premium subscription services that go with them. In this way PS4 stay ahead of the Xbox One. Both of these consoles offer premium subscriptions to their online services. In this case PS4 is cheaper for a $10. PlayStation users can get a year of PS Plus for $50, while Xbox users can get a year of Xbox Live Gold for $60. It is the same for both systems (Microsoft and Sony), this premium service is required to play multiplayer games online.

Gamepad for the Xbox One is just a little bit more updated version of the previous controller of Xbox 360, which has trigger buttons which present character force feedback and a bit more rounded feel. The PS4’s gamepad is the DualShock 4. This gamepad is a completely renovated controller that keeps the best parts of the DualShock 3 gamepad and fixes the worst. The triggers are more responsive, the analog sticks feel better the controller just feels nicer in the hand. It also has a built-in speaker. The only problem is the light bar that marks. The light bar can’t be turned off and sometimes you can see an annoying glare from it if you don’t cover it up. Gamepad for the Xbox One is great, but DualShock 4 is outright excellent. Both of these gamepads play very well.

Games. The best titles are still coming. As we saw the major releases for both systems we saw that both of these consoles are more appealing over the previous generation. Some of the biggest games are generally cross-platforms, so you can count on: Grand Theft Auto 5, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Far Cry 4, Assassin’s Creed Unity on both systems. These are just the names of some the greatest game headlines. Also, each console has a few notable exclusives. A lot of games are going to come for both systems in 2015. With so many titles available on both it boils down to a matter of taste for the exclusives. The choice is yours.
