That model is the 75-inch flagship, the 75X940D.

Latest Pro Cameras Stake Out HD, 4K Territory

Since many of these sensors were close to the size of a 35mm frame of film, shooters could draw on the large supply of 35mm PL mount film lenses.

Bad Robot & Don Coscarelli team for 4K “PHANTASM” Restoration!

Earlier this year, news broke out of Texas Frightmare Weekend that Don Coscarelli was “retiring” his personal 35mm print of his fright favorite PHANTASM, a film whose prints have become decidedly difficult to find in its native format. For some, the move came as an unfortunate turn, considering that the 35mm theatrical experience is still one embraced by a majority of horror hounds, while rumors began to swell that the print’s retirement had something to do- promotional or otherwise- with the upcoming release of PHANTASM V: RAVAGER. Yet no one could have predicted the truth behind the matter, revealed this weekend at Harry Knowles’ Butt-Numb-A-Thon, as J.J. Abrams and his production company, Bad Robot, have teamed with Don Coscarelli on a 4K restoration of PHANTASM!

Panasonic TC-55CX850U 4K TV Review: Bringing Hollywood Home

You could argue, I guess, that the timing of this review of the Panasonic TC-55CX850U is a bit unfortunate. After all, the attention right now seems to be focused on a different Panasonic TV: the preposterously brilliant 65CZ950 OLED TV (reviewed in rather glowing terms here)...The 55CX850U, on the other hand, is a whole lot more approachable. Sure, its $3,499.99 price is still hardly bargain basement territory, but I’d say it’s not bad at all considering how much the TV has to offer.

From the same company that brought the world mass market high quality aerial drones and their excellent video recording capacities, the DJI OSMO is a natural step for the Chinese manufacturer to take given its previous product developments. After first mass producing its affordable drones, DJI also jumped into the business of putting together some excellent semi-native 4K UHD cameras for newer UAV models like the Phantom 3 and since all DJI drones for sale feature a highly stable gimbal assembly for the sake of clean shooting even with in-flight drone vibration, the OSMO was a natural outgrowth of these technologies.
