  • Customs and Revenue ramp up Donegal checkpoints, figures reveal

    first_imgRevenue checkpoints are on the rise in Donegal, with 90 taking place in the first three months of 2019.Donegal has had the highest number of checkpoints compared to any other region in Ireland so far this year.There were 57 checkpoint operations in Lough, the second highest region, between January and March. In the same period, 45 checkpoints were conducted in Cavan, Monaghan and Longford combined. There has been a steady increase in Revenue checkpoints in Donegal in recent years, with 141 operations in 2015 and 107 in 2016. The figure doubled in 2017 to 239 checkpoints and rose again to 287 in 2018.This data was released following a request from Sinead Stewart, Independent Candidate for South Inishowen.Ms Stewart said: “It’s in clear black and white now that Customs and Revenue are targeting ordinary Donegal people and in spite of having been found in breach of European Law, the trend looks to be increasing.“The European Court of Justice ruled two years ago that Ireland’s practice of charging the full amount of VRT up front – even if the vehicle was only being leased for a limited period of time – is in breach of EU law. “Instead of amending the practice as recommended by the ECJ, Customs and Revenue have doubled down on setting up checkpoints and charging the full rate of VRT in Donegal.”Ms Stewart has also criticised certain sitting county councillors for not taking a stance against VRT and for voting to legalise the use of gaming machines in the Inishowen and Letterkenny Municipal Districts.She said: “I find it very revealing that as soon as it was thought Revenue was hampering the profits of gaming establishments owners, establishments which harm the ordinary people of the peninsula, councillors jumped into action to save the wealthy gaming bosses’ profits with the argument that it was to ‘save jobs’, jobs which were never really at risk.“When we first set up the anti-VRT group, certain politicians appeared at the protests and meetings and professed their support. They haven’t mentioned it since then. Why is that?“Surely every politician’s job is to voice the concerns of the people they claim to represent.” Ms Stewart has stated she will continue to campaign against VRT at every opportunity, adding “I hope voters think very carefully in the coming local elections about decisions councillors have taken regarding addressing Revenue and slot machines vs their silence on Revenue and VRT.”Customs and Revenue ramp up Donegal checkpoints, figures reveal was last modified: April 29th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CHECKPOINTSCUSTOMSRevenuesinead stewartVRTlast_img read more

  • How to Take Photos with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K

    first_imgWhile the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4K won’t replace your go-to still camera, it can capture stills to make referencing and scouting much easier.Ever since the T2i, I’ve been writing tips and producing video tutorials on how to take a camera primarily made for capturing stills and using it to create the “cinematic” look in its video mode. And now, here we are taking a pocket camera that has been made for cinema, and looking at how to use it to capture stills (cue Inception music).This notion isn’t new. Back in 2009, two years after the release of the RED ONE, the camera captured a cover photo of Megan Fox for Esquire magazine.It’s interesting to read the take on the experience of the shoot, as a decade later, it reads like a lost relic:For the first time in Esquire‘s history (and, we imagine, magazine history in general), a cover image was shot as a video. Using the RED ONE, a video camera that captures images at four times the resolution of high-definition, photographer-director Greg Williams (see below) recorded ten minutes of loosely scripted footage with Fox . . . ‘She could run scenes, without being reminded by the sound of a shutter every four seconds that I was taking a picture. As in still photography, a lot of it is capturing unexpected moments. This takes that one step further.’The Pocket 4K has been rolling into new users’ hands over the last few weeks, and more filmmakers are looking to get the most out of the camera. While the camera only houses an eight-megapixel sensor, and doesn’t have the typical photo features found on a mirrorless/DSLR-turned-film camera, we can get stills if necessary, and the 4K resolution provides more than enough for quick reference snaps.There are two ways of doing so.Using the Still ButtonOn the top panel, situated next to the red record button, there’s a camera icon button, which you use to capture a still. However, unlike a typical shutter release button — which will capture images continuously until you lift your finger from the button — this will only take the one still image, then you’ll need to press the button again. When pressed, it’s not initially apparent that you may have taken a photograph. There’s no digital shutter sound, no beep, nor does the screen blink. Instead, you’ll see this small camera icon appear in the top-right of the LCD screen after pressing the camera still button.It’s not that obvious — even less so in bright conditions. To make matters even more confusing — or perhaps more beneficial to those filming who don’t want to view stills when browsing their takes — is that when browsing your media on the camera through the playback function, you can’t review your photos. Again, a stills camera this is not, but one would hope it’d be a feature, considering we have a stills button. Even if we had to go into the menu subsystem to find a separate stills folder to review the media, it’d be better than nothing.Upon hitting the stills button, a still (formatted at your current camera setting) will save as a single DNG frame in a new submenu on your card, aptly titled “Stills.” And, cleverly, the stills get renamed with new characters to avoid unnecessary imports when you’re just looking for video files. As with the GH5, for example, if you were to record video, it’d be titled P1040598, and then if you were to take a photo the second after, the photo would be titled P1040599. With the Pocket 4K, stills will continue to follow the naming conventions set on the Pocket 4K, but they will send with S001 and so forth.An alternative method, and one we’ve extensively covered in a previous article for Resolve, is to frame-grab a 4K still from your NLE. It’s the method behind the Megan Fox cover issue, and it’s the method I used to create the poster below.However, whether you choose to capture a still from the camera using the dedicated button or from a frame grab, you’re still limited in how you capture photographs. The camera, at default, is set to shutter angle, the primary shutter setting for cinema cameras.Why is this such a significant factor? Well, typically the shutter speed is the principle setting that controls how long the image is exposed to light, and it will affect the degree of blur. In cinema, the slight amount of blur we get from 24fps at 180-degree shutter is responsible for what many call the “film look” and is a staple of how we perceive cinematic images. The problem is, it’s not great for taking photographs, because even the slightest movement is going to result in a blurry image.To adjust this, we can enter the setup menu and switch the shutter measurement from shutter angle to shutter speed. This will present us to change the shutter measurement to a setting more familiarly found on DSLRs. It allows us to adjust the shutter speed from 1/24 to 1/2000.If you don’t want to continue switching between shutter measurements in the heat of the moment, you can follow the steps below to try and neutralize any motion blur.We want to change the shutter angle to 45-degrees, negating most of the blur from a moving subject (this really only pertains to frame grabs from a video file), and we want to increase the FPS to 60. In doing so, there will be more frames for any given movement, which again will further negate the motion blur with the 45-degree shutter angle. This will help you pluck a still image from your video file.A reference image captured on the BMPCC4K while location scouting.Truthfully, this camera was never designed for stills, and you shouldn’t treat it as such. Since the files are saved on a Cinema DNG frame, you can export the photo to grade quickly or to grab a reference frame when scouting without the burden of a huge video file. Don’t list your stills camera on eBay just yet — there’s still use for it.Cover image via Blackmagic.Looking for more articles on video gear?
