Pentax DSLRs release: Pentax K-5 II and K-5 IIs on October, 2012

The news comes from:

Pentax launches Q10 interchangeable lens camera, K-5 II and K-5 IIs flagship DSLRs

It’s not every day that a camera company launches two major models the same day, but Pentax has done just that with the Q10 mirrorless interchangeable and the K-5 II / IIs cameras. The Q10 joins its equally tiny stablemate, the Q, to round out its line of mini-sensored, playing-card-sized cams that still let you change lenses. The new model boasts the same bokeh control and effects dial of the original Q, but adds a new grip and several color options, like the now-ubiquitous red shown above. Other features include a K-mount lens adapter, an included 15-45mm zoom telephoto, improved AF performance, full HD video recording, anti-shake technology, 5 fps continuous shooting capability and a pop-up flash. The new mini-shooter will go on sale in October at around $600 with the kit lens.

If you have bigger (and deeper) pockets for something more sporty, Pentax has also announced it’s top K-5 II and K-5 IIs models to replace the popular K5, which has been around since 2010. The weather- and cold-resistant, dustproof DSLRs retain the same 16.2-megapixel resolution of their predecessor, but Pentax claims the new SAFOX X AF sensor has improved sensitivity in low-light conditions and improved auto-focus. The K-5 IIs eschews the anti-aliasing filter found on its sibling, but is otherwise the same, with a 3-inch, 925k LCD, 7fps burst mode, magnesium alloy / stainless steel body and RAW data retrieve function. These models will also appear in October and dent your wallet to the tune of $1,200 and $1,350 for the K-5 II and IIs, respectively. All that might address some of the AF and light sensitivity beefs we heard before, but we’ll have wait for the next round of reviews to find out.

The new mini-shooter will go on sale in October at around $600 with the kit lens.

The PENTAX Q10 comes equipped with a Full HD video capture function employing the H.264 recording format, allowing the user to capture high quality, extended movie clips (1920 x 1080 pixels) at a frame rate of 30 frames per second.

Transcode Sony HDR-CX360V 1920×1080 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 HQ for Final Cut Pro on Mac

Summary: The article will give you the workflow for how to import Sony HDR-CX360V 1920×1080 50p/60p MTS footages to Final Cut Pro if your Log and Transfer is proved to be ineffective while ingesting MTS files from Sony HDR-CX360V.

I used Sony HDR-CX360V to record 1920×1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS files, which are not compatible with FCP. So in order to edit .mts clips on Final Cut Pro, conversion from MTS in 50/60 progressive mode to ProRes is necessary.

I’ve tried Clipwrap, Toast and Pavtube to carry out the conversion. Clipwrap failed because it cannot export 50/60 progressive mode; Toast completed converting but the quality is badly affected.

Only Pavtube MTS Converter for Mac successfully converted the 50p/60p MTS to ProRes 422 with no loss of quality. I really want to say that it is the best software to transcode Sony HDR-CX360V 1920×1080 50p/60p AVCHD MTS footage for FCP that I’ve ever used.

Free Download MTS Converter for Mac Mountain Lion 10.8.

1. Import .mts files.

Run the professional Mac MTS Converter for FCP. Use a USB cable to Connect Sony HDR-CX360V to Mac. Click “Add” icon or drag and drop to load .mts files from Sony HDR-CX360V to Pavtube MTS Converter for Mac. Follow the popup window and wizard to complete the import.

Choose Apple ProRes 422(HQ) (*.mov) under Final Cut Pro as its output format and choose “50” (or 60) for the frame rate.

2. Choose Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) for editing on FCP.

Hit “Format” box and select one of the Apple ProRes codecs on the dropdown list. You are advised to choose “Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)”or “Apple ProRes 422 HQ (*.mov)” format. Due to the difference in the compresstion standard of AVCHD and ProRes 422, the converted files are significantly larger than the original ones. If you prefer smaller file size, please choose “Apple ProRes 422 (LT) (*.mov)” instead.

Note: Since ProRes 422 (LT), ProRes 422 (Proxy), and ProRes 4444 have not been added to FCP 6, you’d better not set one of them as output if you happen to edit your H.264 files in FCP 6 before upgrading FCP 7.


  • ProRes 422 (HQ): offers the utmost possible quality for 4:2:2 or 4:2:0 sources and provides target data rate of approximately 220 Mbps and higher quality than Apple ProRes 422;
  • ProRes 422: provides target data rate of approximately 145 Mbps and higher quality than Apple ProRes 422 (LT);
  • ProRes 422 (LT): provides roughly 70 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422 (thus, smaller file sizes than Apple ProRes 422) and higher quality than ProRes 422 (Proxy);
  • ProRes 422 (Proxy): provides roughly 30 percent of the data rate of Apple ProRes 422 and high-quality offline editing at the original frame size, frame rate, and aspect ratio;

It also can transcode all videos and movies to editable HD video formats for non-linear editing software like iMovie, Final Cut Express, Final Cut Pro X, Final Cut Studio, Avid, Adobe Premiere etc. The HD footage can be compressed to SD video clips for storage when you wanna save storage space.

ProRes 422 (Proxy) – For craft editing or offline editing on a MacBook or MacBook Pro.

ProRes 422 (LT) – For projects such as news, sports, and multicam events that require reduced file sizes at broadcast quality.

News! Samsung release Android 4.1 system Camera EK – GC100 Galaxy Camera

Samsung announces EK-GC100 Galaxy Camera with Android Jelly Bean, massive 4.8-inch display, 21x zoom, WiFi and 4G connectivity (hands-on)

During a visit to Samsung’s headquarters in Korea earlier this year, we had a chance to talk shop with company execs. The electronics maker’s existing mirrorless and point-and-shoot lineups were the primary topic of discussion, but we did catch wind of a Galaxy product possibly to come, from the camera division. A Galaxy camera? That could only mean Android, and a heavy heaping of touch and connectivity. At the time, reps admitted only that they were “considering” such a device, and declined to provide any hint as to design or functionality. And we haven’t heard a further peep, until today. As you may have gathered from recent rumors, Samsung’s Galaxy Note II is not the only product to be Unpacked this afternoon. Sure enough, the anticipated Galaxy Camera is also on order, and we have all the juicy details just past the break.

M2T files and FCP (X)-Transcode M2T footage to ProRes MOV for FCP 6/7, FCP X editing smoothly

Summary: The article will tell you how to transcode M2T footages to Final Cut Pro 6/7 or FCP X for editing smoothly via Mac M2T to MOV Converter.

What is M2T files?

M2T is High-definition video recording format used by many HD camcorders; commonly referred to as “HDV”; uses MPEG-2 compression to store HD video data on DV or MiniDV tapes; supports resolutions of 720p and 1080i.

There are many different digital video file types available out there, which can make file conversion difficult for the inexperienced. M2T files and MPG files are actually not completely dissimilar, as both are different types of MPEG2 video files. As a result, this is a much less complicated conversion than many other possible video conversions. If a quick file renaming trick doesn’t work, there are many conversion programs available on the Internet. I’d like Pavtube Mac M2T to MOV Converter.

The native format of HDV isn’t QuickTime, its .M2T.

Anyway, while working on my latest book, I needed to convert .M2T files to Final Cut Pro 6/7 and Final Cut Pro X compatible Formats. Apple Final Cut likes lots and lots of different files – but not .M2T.

This means that if someone captures an HDV file in another application, such as Adobe OnLocation or HDVSplit , then sends it to you, you’ll need to transcode M2T to ProRes MOV before importing M2T to Final Cut Pro (X) for editing on Mac.

Note: You can not use QuickTime Player to preview an M2T file. The Finder displays it as a generic document icon.

Download Pavtube Mac M2T to MOV Converter

Step 1. Install and run Pavtube Mac M2T to ProRes Converter. Copy your M2T footages to Mac, click on ““, load M2T file.

Tip: If you merge or combine various .m2t files into one file, click “Merge into one file”.

Step 2: Set Apple ProRes 422 MOV as output format.
When you’d like to specify an output format, you can choose “Format > Final Cut Pro > Apple ProRes 422 (*.mov)” as the best video format for FCP 6/7 and FCP X on Mac 10.8.

Step 3. Click “Settings” if you want to further customize video and audio parameters such as video codec, audio codec, frame rate, bit rate, video size, audio channels etc. Do not forget to click on “OK” to confirm your settings. In Export to box you could specify destination for the converted file.

Step 4. You can click “Edit” button to perform edit functions such as crop, trim, flip, effect, watermark and audio replace. To eliminate interlacing effect, simply check Deinterlacing box under Effect tab.

Tip: If you don’t want “3D effect”, please click on the pull down menu, choose “none”.

Step 5: Start converting M2T to ProRes 422 MOV for FCP 6/7 and FCP X.

Click on “Convert” button to start Conversion. The converter will generate MOV file with admirable video quality. The M2T files are HD video with huge file size, so the conversion of M2T to ProRes MOV may cost lots of time. You can set auto shutdown before conversion starts. Simply click on the “Option” menu and check the box of “Shut down computer after conversion”.

Step 6. Import converted video to FCP 6/7 or FCP Xfor editing on Mac Mountaion Lion 10.8.

After conversion you can click the “Open” button to locate converted files and load the ProRes MOV files to FCP (X). Now you are able to edit M2T footage in FCP 6/7 or FCP X freely.

After testing, we found the 1080p AVCHD recordings from Lumix DMC-G5 can’t be surpported well by FCP/FCE/Avid MC/iMovie (include iMovie 8/9/11), especially 50p clips.

Firstly, the recordings with the codec H.264/MPEG-4 are highly compressed for saving storage space and smooth playback, but the H.264 files are not suitable for editing, so editing H.264 MTS files in FCP/FCE/Avid MC/iMovie is always a headaching problem for editors.

Secondly, up to now, FCP/FCE/Avid MC/iMovie can not always successfully recognize footages at 60fps. So if you want to put 1080/60p files to FCP/FCE/Avid MC/iMovie, you will sometimes meet the importing problem.

How to solve the importing problem without any loss of original quality?

To sovle the importing problem, the first thing you should know is that the Apple InterMediate Codec(AIC) is the best codec for iMovie 8/9/11 on Mac Mountain Lion 10.8, So you need a professional Mac Panasonic AVCHD Converter to convert Panasonic G5 1080p 50p/60p AVCHD to AIC MOV for editing. Here recommended the best Mac Converter – Pavtube MTS/M2TS Converter for Mac, applying which you are not only able to transcode 1080/60p AVCHD files to 1080/30p MOV files with AIC/ProRes/DNxHD codec, but also capable of combining several clips into one for easy importing/editing in iMovie/FCP/FCE/Avid MC, trimming videos, adding text/image/video as watermarks to your original files, replacing audios, adjusting brightness/contast/saturation of the imported files, etc.

Canon announces EOS C100 cinema camera, confirms October shipping for the C500

News reproduced:

Canon already gave those looking for a full-frame DSLR plenty to think about recently, and now it’s stirring up the movie-maker’s pot. It’s just announced a new member to its EOS digital cinema collection — the EOS C100 — and given us a better idea of when we can expect that C500 to land. The C100 essentially offers a new prospect for those with pockets not quite so deep. Unlike its 4K sibling, the C100 offers 1,920 x 1,080 AVCHD via its Super 35mm 16:9 CMOS sensor, has an ISO range of 320 to 20,000 and sports the EF mount system. Other features of interest include a push auto iris function, one-shot auto focus, a multi-angle 3.5-inch LCD and a locking HDMI output. The C500, meanwhile, has now been tipped for an October debut with that princely $30,000 price-tag. But, if the C100 sounds more your jive, then you can scoop one up in November for a slightly less tax-deductible $7,999. Canon also took the opportunity to offer up two new cinema lenses: the CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S/SP wide-angle and the CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L S/SP telephoto.
