O.P.N. FOR DECEMBER 2ND, 2013

 In Apps, Gear

Welcome to another edition of Other People’s News. What follows are some of the more interesting info-nuggets I’ve recently spotted around the web-o-sphere.

  • On his VJ Technology Blog, Glen Mulcahy offered up a super handy cheat sheet of iMovie gestures. He also discusses what I believe is the app’s best new feature: the ability to detach audio from existing video clips. Glen also recently published a very nice report on using radio mics (lavs, handhelds, etc.) with an iPhone.
  • iMore took a look at the recent olloclip update. The new version offers an additional macro lens, and more. If you’ve read my book, you already know I’m a BIG fan of the olloclip. I expect this new version will only fan the flames of my love.
  • iMore also reported on the Pencil, a sexy new stylus from 53 (the makers of Paper for iPad). This bluetooth beauty lacks pressure sensitivity, but its automatic palm-rejection and built-in “eraser” might make this a solid choice for digital storyboard artists.
  • NoFilmSchool.com told readers about Arri’s Free Photometrics App for iPhone and iPad. Looks mighty informative for DPs and Gaffers , but as you might expect, it only covers Arri lighting gear.
  • MacAppDeals is offering a deal on a three-lens kit for iPhone. For the next week or so, you can pick up the kit for $23.99 (down from $69). I can’t remember where I first read about this (a few sites have mentioned it)…and I have absolutely no idea if these lenses are any good (or total poop).
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re capturing video on your iPhone or blocking shots on your iPad – nothing sucks more than running out of juice before you’ve wrapped your shoot. That’s why I’m always on the lookout for high-capacity iPhone/iPad batteries. It looks like iMore found a nice one called the Moshi Ionbank 10k.
