Super excited to get hands-on with this new camera. A full review coming soon.
Do you need to share files with others? Both the Mac OS and iOS make it easy with AirDrop to share files with nearby colleagues (or even from one of your machines to another). This video offers a quick look at how to take advantage of this useful feature.

I had a painful realization the other day. In many ways the skill I’ve spent more than 25 years practicing has lost almost all value. Video content, whether that be movies, television, online education, or even home movies have lost almost all value. If your goal is to create content for sale, particularly to an end consumer, things look pretty bleak.

At this year's NAB, I was invited to kickoff the conference as a guest on their live broadcast. I had a chance to talk about changes in the world of educating creative professionals. I shared some of my own view points about where things are going and how the changes affects students and working pros alike. My interview starts around the 22 minute mark.
At NAB in Las Vegas, we found Rich Harrington taking a rare break from his busy schedule of teaching and appearances, and persuaded him to give us an update on his many activities. Rich talks about the value proposition of NAB and Post Production World, his company, his newest web site, ThinkTAPLearn, and why he is so driven to share visual storytelling skills.
There’s nothing more important than the job interview. Screw this one up and you’re not getting in. In this class you’ll learn how to avoid devastating mistakes and get the edge. The class is taught by Rich Harrington, who’s both run a full service production company and been a hiring interviewer for 20 years. This class is essential to help you land that first (or next) job.
Here's a rough recording of the session from NAB (please forgive poor audio quality).

If you fly a drone, quadcopter, model airplane, or UAS in the United States airspace, the Federal Aviation Administration wants you to register your device. These new regulations went into effect today, December 21, 2o15. While the process of restoring takes less than 5 minutes, there are a lot of hidden details buried within the numerous government documents about UAS registration.
The In-Depth Look
I've dug deep into every document that I could find and have put together a comprehensive look at the new regulations. If you fly, or are thinking about buying a drone I'd strongly suggest watching this tutorial.
Just the Registration Part
If you only want the mechanics on HOW to register using the website... here's just that part of the tutorial.
Skim the Highlights
The Official Bits
Here's some of the key details from the FAA. You can find out more here (http://bit.ly/registeradrone)
Which unmanned aircraft do I have to register?
Owners must register their UAS online if it meets the following guidelines:
- Weighs more than 0.55 lbs. (250 g) and less than 55 lbs. (25 kg). Unmanned Aircraft weighing more than 55 lbs. cannot use this registration process and must register using the Aircraft Registry process.
Owners must register their UAS by paper if it meets the following guidelines:
- Your aircraft is used for commercial purposes.
- Your aircraft is used for other than hobby and recreation.
- Your aircraft is greater than 55 lbs.
- You intend to operate your aircraft outside of the United States.
How do I register my UAS?
It costs only $5 to register your UAS and the process is simple and web-based. Registration is free for the first 30 days. Some things you'll need before you get started:
An email address
- Credit or Debit card
- Physical address and mailing address (if different from physical address)
Your registration is valid for three years. Once you receive a registration number, you can use it on all of your unmanned aircraft if they meet the online registration criteria.
