January 31, 2011


Tweet

What is a Teleprompter? In some situations, it could be a life saver. Especially when you’re renting a location and time is limited. Teleprompters are extremely useful tools when you’re working with a host or anyone that needs to read off lines while looking directly into the camera’s lens.

NextWaveDV Linco Flora Review
January 30, 2011


Tweet

NextWaveDV.com reviews the Linco Flora Fluorescent lights and puts them against some very expensive Kino’s. (Hey, I get a shot out too!).

If you aren’t following @express35 via Twitter you might have missed the sneak peek. Looks like this adjustable camera base should be the missing link for those looking to add more vertical height to the camera position.

Speedlite Flash Modifier Kit
January 30, 2011

If you’ve been experimenting with Flash photography, you might start to gain interest in light modifiers. With different types of modifiers you can shape the light and target exactly where you want it to be. I know some guys who carry between 4-8 speedlite flashes (or more) when on assignment.

With and Without the Fade
January 29, 2011


Tweet

Vimeo member Film Cyfrowy runs through a few samples on why so many of us rely on ND Filters for video. If you’re working without ND filters and need to bring your exposure down, you can try stopping down your aperture, but you’ll lose all that gorgeous Depth of Field look. You can also drop [...]

Glidecam HD1000 vs. Flycam Nano
January 28, 2011


Tweet

These are two of the most popular and smallest DSLR stabilizers. I’m not going to say one is better than the other when it comes down to the actual video footage.
