28Mar Best Rechargeable Batteries – Sanyo


Tweet

It’s quite a hassle to keep track of charged and uncharged batteries if you’re relying on the power to get you through your next Project. I’ve been using these Sanyo Eneloops for years, and they are by far the best Rechargeable batteries i’ve ever used. Normally rechargeable batteries aren’t recommended in certain devices, and if [...]

Video Details from Fabio Cunha:
A time-lapse experiment. 4020 shots used from more than 8000 shots. 1 shot for every 2 seconds interval. Canon 7D with Tamron 17-50mm 2.8. Cheap intervalometer and a crappy tripod.
I’m going to start doing this more often and share videos I like on my blog. Vimeo user Fabio Cunha created [...]

As some of you might have read, I purchased the GoPro HD Video Camera specifically for underwater use during my vacation (coming in a few weeks). Hopefully i’ll do an underwater review video while i’m out there.
Being the gadget geek that I am, I just realized i’m going to need a better camera case [...]

Tweet

Above DIY project from http://www.flickr.com/photos/sundevilstormin/3558388856/
Spring is here, weather is awesome, time to get back to Photography. I’ve been checking out a bunch of DIY beauty dish articles on the web, and boy do they look really good. If you’re not familiar, a beauty dish better diffuses a flash output to wrap your subject in nice [...]

25Mar BodyPod Monopod Stabilizer for 550D Canon T2i – Light Cameras


Tweet

Before this video will make any sense, you should know about my DIY BodyPod project found at http://cheesycam.com/?p=93
A BodyPod is not a tripod. It’s basically a cut up monopod that supports the camera by use of a strap attached to the body.
These stick things are used to take a picture of yourself by mounting a [...]

25Mar $20.00 DIY offset Shoulder Rig for DSLR – CheesyRig


Tweet

I was bored, collected a few parts from Home Depot and decided to hack up a quick DIY Offset Shoulder rig. Since DSLR’s don’t have the flip out LCD option, placement of the ViewFinder needs to be offset. I also added some weights to the rear to help balance things out and it won’t feel [...]

24Mar Everything’s cheaper with T2i 550D

These Canon 550D T2i Batteries LP-E8 are sooo cheap.
One of the decisions you’ll need to make about buying your video DSLR is all the accessories you’re going to need to help you shoot your projects. Compared to the $80 dollar OEM batteries for the 7D, the Canon T2i 550D batteries are chump change. I’ve already [...]

Fluid movement in video is a big deal today. Dollies, sliders, jibs, cranes, steadicam shots, skater dollies, there are tons of different ways to get that cinematic camera movement. The video above has got to be one of my favorite simple camera tricks I ran into a while back, but since we’ve got a growing [...]

24Mar Level it out – Fig Rig Stabilizers


Tweet

Fig Rigs are another type of video camera stabilizer. By spacing your hands further from the center of the lens, you’ll get less movement and shakiness. The concept is simple, so that makes it one of the most popular DIY’s. Even a plank of wood can act in the same manner. The hard part is [...]

23Mar The ‘No Pod’ Camera Stabilizer?


Tweet

As akward as this ‘No Pod’ item might look, it makes sense. Sometimes you just can’t run around with even just a Monopod, but you’ll need something to help keep you stable. Sure there’s been tons of DIY projects using this technique, but at least this version won’t make you look completely silly. Another version [...]

23Mar DSLR Cage More Accessories


Tweet

I fly my Steadicam + Glidecam HD 4000 Hybrid rig quite a bit. I’m loading it up more and more with LED lighting, Shotgun Microphones, Zoom H4n, etc. I’m building it to follow someone around sorta ‘Reality TV’ style, and will still have decent lighting and audio. Although the Stabilizer and Vest are strong, i’m [...]

20Mar 550D Canon T2i Camera Stabilizer Video


Tweet

I posted about this Hague Mini Motion Camera Stabilizer earlier in my blogs, but I just thought I’d share with everyone what a Canon T2i looks like when balanced on the Hague. Now that high quality HD Video cameras are smaller, the Hague MMC is one good option. This stabilizer will only fly the weight [...]
