Taking place in Amsterdam every September, IBC attracts more than 50,000 attendees from at least 170 countries. Along with NAB in April, IBC is a major venue for manufacturers to announce and release new gear, while giving many potential users a chance to see and touch the new gear, as well as ask questions one-on-one with the equipment technicians.

I bought a GoPro a few years ago, because, like pretty much everyone else at the time, I saw those amazing videos of people snowboarding or mountain biking and wanted to make my own action-packed videos. After mounting the GoPro on my bike and filming myself riding around New York City a few times, I ended up giving up because the footage from the GoPro alone was pretty much unusable. The...

I recently had the opportunity to try the Feiyu a2000 gimbal. I've worked with a few camera-stabilizing systems before, and have only recently begun to feel more comfortable with them, so I was happy to try another system. Now, truth be told, I have always felt that for free-form work—I...

With everything that goes into capturing aerial footage—type of drone, camera setup, lens configuration, etc.—it’s easy to overlook one of the simplest but most crucial components of the recording process: storage. And while not as varied as drones themselves, the solutions for saving all your flying footage are sundry, and require careful consideration. To help decide which solution is right for...

A few weeks before the April NAB show in Las Vegas, the video team here at B&H (myself included) was invited by the Vitec Group to an exclusive sneak peek of new tripod legs from Sachtler.

If you’re working with large media files, you’re probably going to need more storage than a single drive can provide. While you could just haphazardly put a bunch of drives together, a RAID array is a better alternative because it uses multiple drives together to increase speed, protect your data, or both.
