DCP 177: New Retina iMacs and DJI OSMO

Apple announces updates to their iMac line–the 21.5 iMac is now Retina 4K. The big news for digital media creatives is the expanded color gamut of the new iMacs. Apple says this is achieved by shifting the Retina display away from standard white LEDs to advanced red-green phosphor LEDs. Now all three colors — red, green, and blue — are more equally represented and show off real-world color with more balance and precision. The new color gamut is based on the DCI-P3 color space - once only available in high-end pro gear. The new displays allow for 25% more colors to be differentiated on screen.

It seems like we’re stuck on old design conventions when it comes to cameras. It's like how the first automobiles looked like the horse buggies they replaced. Will camera manufactures finally break away from the DSLR and camcorder form factor and embrace new designs that help us as digital media creatives to embed ourselves in the action and capture the images we want without getting in the way?

It looks like DJI - yes, the drone juggernaut - is doing just that with the release of the a clever new handheld camera and gimbal system called the OSMO that captures 4K video. I take an in-depth look at the OSMO in this episode.
