Today we test the Hoya and Tiffen variable ND filters and see how they perform. As a hint they are both great filters and can serve you well. But, as all things some tools are better than others and that holds true here. So, you will have to watch and see which one I recommend.

This is a short film I created as an entry for HBO’s Project Greenlight. I shot it on the Panasonic GH4 in 4K with a little bit of 1080p GoPro footage in the mix.
If you enjoy it please like it on YouTube and FaceBook. Please blog about it, tweet it heck scream from the rooftops about it. Oh yeah and wish me luck.
For all of my fellow gear heads.

Slow motion in full 1080p HD has long been desired by indy filmmakers and the Panasonic GH4 has delivered. At 96fps you can get true slow motion and I set out to put this feature through its paces and the results are impressive.

Today we visit the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum in San Diego, Ca. The museum is free and even offers free parking. When you arrive don’t be fooled by the few planes they have the parking lot because they have many many more in the back. I almost missed the main museum because they have a cool exhibit in the parking lot and I at first I thought that was it. They have jets from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Persian Gulf War I & II all the way through to today. Its a really cool place with a friendly and informative staff so if you are in San Diego and looking for free family friendly entertainment check out the Flying Leatherneck Aviation Museum.
