Sub $26.00 dollar 3.5″ Mini LCD Test w/ GH2
December 30, 2010


Tweet

No audio in this video, I had nothing to say. Just playing around. Testing a 3.5″ LCD to see if it will hold up as a remote viewfinder or Electronic View Finder. It displays 960×480 pixels, and adjustments can be made to contrast and brightness. I tried other small LCD’s but none of them had [...]

December 30, 2010


Tweet
Looks like Yongnuo is always one step ahead of me. Earlier I posted about their 135 LED Video light, which uses rechargeable batteries and can be charged via USB. Looks like they are well on their way to building up more accessories for DSLR video and the 160 LED is the next in line. This [...]

Tackle the DIY Ring Light Project
December 30, 2010


Tweet

Shortly after posting the DIY Ring Light article, things got real quiet on this blog. I went M.I.A….. So a couple of friends came by and we decided to spend a few hours whipping one up. This is a very old DIY Photography project, but not something every household wants to have laying around the [...]

DIY Continuous Ring Light
December 29, 2010


Tweet

Beauty ring flashes are popular for photography headshots because they provide an interesting catch light in the subject’s eyes. Not sure how many of you caught this video, but this was a DIY ring light I seen a while back from Flickr photos. Here’s an old version of this http://www.flickr.com/photos/rodolfonovak/196220050/
Now that DSLR’s are shooting HD, [...]

DSLR Camera MP3 player + Speaker
December 29, 2010


Tweet

It’s designed to be a 1:1 scale of a Canon-Like DSLR with 24-105mm F/4L lens, but it’s actually an MP3 player. This replica can play files from USB thumb drives or from SDHC memory cards. When you’re not playing music from flash media, you can attach it via USB or through a 3.5mm plug and [...]

Express35 Custom Offset Adapter
December 28, 2010


Tweet

Here’s a basic setup of rails, HD Handles, base plate, and Adapter plate from Express35.com. I emailed Chris about how I like using the cheap $24.00 dollar shoulder support, but you have to be somewhat inventive to create an adapter for offsetting it. I was surprised to hear back that as an experiment Chris setup [...]

A look at the Cineroid EVF – Electronic View Finder
December 28, 2010


Tweet
Chris M. share’s some images of his Cineroid EVF which I believe is the first EVF out on the market. We’re still waiting for Zacuto and RedRock Micro to release their version. If you’re that impatient type that needs an EVF now, there’s a limited amount of these Cineroid things you can grab over at [...]

DIY Battery Pack for DSLR Camera
December 28, 2010


Tweet

The idea to create an external power pack was to wire up a dummy battery into the camera and connect a 7.4v rechargeable RC battery. That voltage would be the same as the original camera battery (for canon), so ideally this should work. I mentioned the idea after seeing Swintronix and posted an article here: [...]

Hands on with Opteka CXS-1 Shoulder Support
December 27, 2010


Tweet

The Opteka CXS-1 is a fairly inexpensive ready built video camera shoulder support rig. Besides the obvious mount for the camera, the stage has a few extra mounting points if you want to get creative and add some extra accessory brackets. The Opteka was designed for cameras up to 20lbs (so they say), but no [...]

Jag35 is up to something new and affordable. They are currently showing off their upcoming EFF – Electronic Follow Focus system. I have to admit, I can’t say i’ve ever seen an Electronic Follow Focus being sold at this price, in fact the price is cheap compared to just about any follow focus system.

GH2 Rails Follow Focus View Finder Microphone
December 26, 2010


Tweet

I have to say this was a hard camera to track down. It’s pretty much sold out and on back-order everywhere you look. Luckily, a good guy over in Berkley, CA ended up with 1 too many from pre-orders and sold it to me. Quality is great for something this small and definitely the menu’s [...]

Canon Camera Money Piggy Bank
December 24, 2010


Tweet

Funny it’s not often I stare over at my Cameras and think “This thing is going to save me some money”. Well that could all change with this novelty product designed after a Canon 350D DSLR with 24-105mm F/4L lens. It’s a Piggy bank, less the pig. Very cool, wish I had seen this earlier, [...]

The Next Big Thing? Yongnuo’s LED Video Light
December 24, 2010

Yongnuo DSLR LED Video Light Dimmable
Ok, so a long time ago I posted something called the CN-126 LED video light which became a huge hit with DSLR videographers on a budget. That’s still a very popular LED light in use today, but even though it’s a reliable performer, the form factor and build quality is [...]
