30Jul Flycam Nano Video Shows Up


Tweet

I’ve done a few videos about different DSLR stabilizers, and have been trying to get a hold of one these Flycam Nanos to do a review. At least there is this video (above) that shows some basic sample footage. So far of my favorite stabilizers for small cameras would have to be the Glidecam HD1000 [...]

30Jul Express35 Gear Review by Josef + Special Deal


Tweet

I showed off the limited edition $99 Dollar shoulder shooter before, but I think this may be the first official review regarding the larger Express35.com shoulder support rig. Great job Josef! These aren’t designed to be Steadicams as a walking running type rig, but Josef seems to have that movement down and it looks very [...]

29Jul Tilt Shift – Without the Tilt Shift Lens


Tweet

Wow, I knew there was software to mimic the Tilt-Shift effect you get from $2,000-$3,000 dollar lenses, but never saw it look this good. Here’s a couple of Timelapse videos shot by Photographer Martin Wallgren, and edited in post to mimic the Tilt Shift effect with Alien Skin’s ‘Bokeh’ software. The focus drop off looks [...]

29Jul Cheap Wireless Photography Remote 550D / T2i


Tweet

I get questions about the remote I use for my Painters Pole Photography with the Palo Alto adapter. I showed the above video a while back. Since the Canon 550D / T2i is such a popular camera, and I get questions about the remote, I guess it’s about time I link out to the official [...]

29Jul New Four Thirds Lens by Olympus


Tweet

Rumor of a new four-thirds lens, Olympus may have a Zuiko 30-150mm Lens with F/3.3-4.2. This is an impressive aperture for such a variable telephoto lens. I can’t read what the rest of the website is saying, but this is rumored to be a new lens announced this year.

According to the comments and emails coming in, It looks and feels like the real thing, but it’s NOT being sold as the real LCDVF. In fact these replicas or ‘clones’ are going for less than half the price now. I’m still waiting for mine to show [...]

28Jul Skydiving – T2i in the Sky


Tweet

Not long after I posted about Skydive.tv, local Bay Area Skydiving Videographer Bill Voelker sends in some footage shot with his custom T2i Helmet mount. Most people might think that a 5DM2 or 7D with it’s magnesium frame would be a better fit for this extreme sport, but i’m assuming weight would be an issue, [...]

26Jul SpiderTrax Dolly – DIY Footage


Tweet

Modeled after the SpiderTrax Rotating Video dolly from PhotographyandCinema.com, YouTube member ZelenPol pulled off some really fun footage. This is a fine example of the types of video footage you can capture with the SpiderTrax Rotating video dolly, that you can’t achieve from a camera slider. I just recently shot a video / photo shoot [...]
