Editor's Notes

January 03, 2019:

There were a lot of 4K cams out there that also had the ability to stream video through HDMI, but the vast majority of them could only send 1080 or worse in a live setting. Blackmagic has by far the best camera if you plan on using an outboard monitor, but Canon's XF705 offers a bit of everything. It doesn't boast the interchangeable lenses of a Sony FS5 or even the a7 iii, but it's still the best bang for your buck.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
