tour_map_tv-bay_tour_june_2014_6.jpg

I will be giving a new and improved version of my “To 4K or to not 4K” in the morning as well as two small workshops in the afternoon! All FREE! You just need to register.

The official description of my talk:

With the affordable Panasonic GH4 and to an extent the Sony AX100 4k for the masses is becoming a reality whether we need it or not! Philip will share his three years of experience of shotting 4k from the RED Epic through to the GH4. Can your work actually benefit from these cameras or is it being forced upon us before HD’s true potential has been realised?

For the costs involved to the creative possibilites this seminar will be essential for anyone whether they are about to jump onto it or are just curious about the next evolution in video cameras.

I hope to see as many of you there as possible! It was a lot of fun last year and you can’t knock a free show and free talks! 🙂
