27Sep Mail Bag Monday – 32GB SDHC Class 10


Tweet

These came in just a day late. Luckily I had a few SDHC cards in my Canon SX210 IS and Zoom H4n to fall back on. I was hoping these would arrive for the Music video shoot on the Canon 60D’s, but we managed. So I haven’t really tested these out yet, but i’ll be [...]

27Sep Three Camera Music Video shot on Canon EOS 60D


Tweet
It was a scorching hot day yesterday, but the bright sun helped bring in some light into this old unused factory. There was no electricity so the band rented a 5000 watt generator for the shoot. We had full run of the entire abandoned lot which was awesome. This place was huge with several buildings [...]

26Sep Redrock Micro EVF – Electronic View Finder


Tweet

Cinema5D’s got the scoop on a new Redrock Micro ‘Electronic View Finder’ specifically designed for HD Video DSLR’s. We all new this day was coming, but what I totally didn’t expect was the expected price point. Wow, I really hope they can meet those goals, that’s just ridiculous pricing for anything RedRock Micro. It looks [...]

Thanks to a few people for leaving some comments on this item. It’s a new view finder loupe on the market that is said to fit the aspect ratio of the Canon 550D / T2i perfectly with no crop. Looks like a similar design we’ve seen before but now with a custom fit and [...]

26Sep I’m late, but should be worth it.


Tweet

Running a bit late on the shoot today, but we wanted to have a rail longer than a 4ft. slider. Ran over to Home Depot and quickly assembled a raised dolly track fit for the SpiderTrax Video Dolly. Everything comes right off the shelf, clamps together securely, pretty portable (except for the long rails). The [...]

24Sep Better Audio DIY Portable Sound Booth


Tweet

Since we’re on the topic of Audio capture, one of tips I remember came from an article about mobile Podcasting. This was when the iPod first came out years ago and there was a slew of audio podcasting stations (which I see now replaced with Video castings. So Podcasters who traveled the country often needed [...]

24Sep Manual Audio Levels Canon 60D


Tweet

Canon EOS 60D 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera with 3.0-Inch LCD and 18-135mm
I keep talking about the manual audio levels being a big plus for the Canon 60D right now, and I think some people are still wondering what the big deal is. Currently only the 5D Mark II has this option and hopefully [...]

24Sep Sunday Music Video with Three Canon 60D Cameras


Tweet

So my second Canon 60D arrives this morning and another friend just grabbed one yesterday over at Best Buy in Redwood City. Can you believe just walking into a store and finding the last one? I like online over retail mainly because of taxes, but with local retail you can always resolve your issues quickly [...]

23Sep Canon 60D Timer Remote Timelapse Photography


Tweet

Well questions about a Canon 60D Timer Remote / Intervalometer are coming in. The camera is a hybrid of T2i and 7D bits and pieces. The Canon 60D uses the same battery as the 7D but uses the connection type for the Timer Remote as the T2i. Shown in this video: http://cheesycam.com/canon-t2i-550d-timer-remote-timelapse/, this mini jack [...]

22Sep Canon 7D vs 60D vs 550D / T2i


Tweet

Now that Canon is throwing everyone for a loop releasing every ‘in between’ type of camera, I just thought i’d throw up a video about a few differences in the Canon 7D vs 60D vs T2i. I too was quite disappointed that Canon didn’t release any earth shattering news about new video features on their [...]

Thanks to Joseph over at ShadowMindProductions.com for the tip on this $6 dollar HDMI splitter. Joseph mentions there’s no video lag between monitors during his tests. Now you’ll be able to use an external monitor for camera operator, and if you want, a larger one for the the director. I’m sure these are going [...]

22Sep Flexible Friction Power Arms for DSLR accessories


Tweet

Yeah, they rock! Was a bit worried about the size, type of material, and how much weight these things would carry, but I totally under estimated the quality. It’s all metal in every segment. Lots of different mounting options from Male thread, to Female Threaded insert, to Hot shoe. Very cool highly positionable little arms [...]
