Really bad Mockup (fake image below)

There’s been speculation and alot of hype from different Loupe makers about changing the way we currently ‘view’ through DSLR’s. One statement from a well known company (I won’t quote completely), mentioned something kinda like:
‘Right now you hold the camera up to your eye, that’s going to change’.
I’ve seen [...]

Latest LED Video Lights for DSLR Video
June 28, 2010


Tweet

Ok, another product that’s not out on YouTube or Vimeo. Nobody’s got reviews on these items, why not? They just make sooo much sense. Lighting has always been an issue whenever we traveled. Halogen bulbs can break by the time your plane lands, and you’re pretty much stuck. Hot bulbs are always uncomfortable to work [...]

Weird Dual Remote for Canon T2i / 550D
June 25, 2010


Tweet

click image
I’m not sure exactly which infrared remote model number is used on the Canon T2i / 550D, but for the Canon 5D Mark II you would use the RC-1 infrared remote. This is a nice handy little remote to shoot photos and also start and stop video. The problem is that it’s infrared and [...]

Here’s a recent comment regarding the 126 LED Dimmable Multi Battery LED Video Light many people have purchased:
I was wondering you Em or anyone had any experience with color correcting these 126 LED lights to (near) Tungsten?
It’s true, the Tungsten gel that comes with the LED light panel isn’t very close to Tungsten. Now [...]

Ok, i’m really excited to talk about this item, it’s such a great find for me. I’ve seen this item many times but couldn’t find a single YouTube or Vimeo video review about the 717AH Video Fluid Head (note that the number on the box doesn’t always match the number on the fluid head). Other [...]

Here’s a quick run through of what to expect from the Aputure Timer Remote when getting the Intervalometer ( Timelapse ) feature started. This timelapse remote is for the Canon 550D / T2i and will not work with the Canon 7D or 5D Mark II. The connection to the camera is similar to a mini [...]

June 23, 2010


Tweet

I’m seeing bits and pieces of video footage coming from Sony’s NEX, now that the camera is available. For now, the above video seems like the best thing i’ve found on Vimeo that someone’s put alot of time into. Flickr has a growing Sony NEX-3 & NEX-5 group showcasing the awesome photo quality, but that’s [...]

First of all, I want to apologize if i’m not very responsive to many of the comments or emails that come in. I’m pretty overwhelmed with the response this blog has, and being a one man show, i’m trying my best! I’m an average guy, with an 80 mile commute (one way) in the mornings, [...]

Canon 24-105mm F/4 in a Cup!
June 23, 2010


Tweet

Unlike the 70-200mm F/4 Coffee Mug at the Winter Olympics, this cup was never released directly by Canon. When this lens replica cup was first available, it was a very cheap looking, terrible design, that had many many flaws. After finding that there is a ‘Version 2′ of this lens with over 90% accuracy, it [...]

Underwater Focus Fix GoPro HD Cameras
June 22, 2010


Tweet

The GoPro HD Camera is an awesome little camera that can be used in any situation possible. We’ve seen it on land, in near space, and underwater. The underwater footage though doesn’t seem as sharp due to the curved lens on the water proof housing. This design provides many ‘Pros’, but the underwater focus is [...]

Why is everything related to Camera’s marked up a Bazzillion percent? I looked for a good solution for one of my DIY interests, and couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, especially for the price I wanted to pay.
