If you are using your smartphone for video or stills this is a product worth looking at.  It can be used as a stand alone device or work along with the smartphone using it as a monitor.

It truly can slip into a shirt pocket, pants pocket, any pocket pretty much and the image quality is incredible.  It can be as auto as you want or as manual as you might need.

This little device is with me all the time.  It truly represents a photography/video instrument that can be with you no matter where you go or what you are doing.




Nizo: iPhone app dreams of Super 8 and aims to simplify the art of filmmaking by Jose Antunes – ProVideo Coalition

I have been messing around with different video apps for the iPhone and for that matter all Smart Phones. A few of them are Filmic Pro, Moment, and Nizo.

Filmic Pro is probably the most popular and the most featured and the most complex within it’s manual operating structure. It also has auto mode.

Moment is a newcomer to the filming area and what they started out as was the manufacturer of some of the highest quality lenses in the Smart Phone business.

Nizo is a whole different breed. Their concept is that making a video should be just as simple as picking up that old super eight camera and filming away. A big difference with this filming app is that you can select a load of film emulation film presets from days of old and you can edit them right within the app. The concept is that the videographer should be left free to create art. Keep it simple, create, edit simply and if necessary move it on to another editing program.

It truly succeeds, at making things simple and creative.

I was going to write a full overview of the Nizo program, but I was fortunate to come across this article about the app. I have to admit that the app is a work in progress, but where it is, is quite good, especially for a person starting out with video like me.
