The 10th edition of the third season of Lens Curator brings you 4 new excerpts from the world of photography and videography. This month we take a look at Anthem One LED light, Adobe Rush, color science, tips for travel videos and V-mount batteries.
Is this the ultimate LED lighting system?
Anthem One changes every paradigm of professional-grade lighting. Longevity. Reliability. Mobility. Weight. Heat. Brightness. Ease of Use. It uses Anthem Light Cards – swappable, tough, solid-state wafers coated with an array of micro LEDs. Justin Eugene Evans, Anthem One’s inventor put it on Kickstarter, and in 2 days f the project had almost 200% of its funding goal. But Evans pulled the plug and canceled the campaign! He got an offer from private investors and launched his baby in just 2 months. It sounds too good to be true, but judging by the reviews and videos, this thing is huge! And only for 1499$
The simplification of cutting on the go
Adobe Rush is a new app from the almighty Adobe. It is basically an all-in-one online video editing software and seems to be the video equivalent of Lightroom CC. Ideal for quick edits of short videos aimed at social media. The main feature though? It puts your work in the cloud and lets you switch seamlessly between editing on your phone or your workstation. Perfect for prep work on your daily commute.
