Tompter Teleprompter – DIY Prompter
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. Most green screen shows like Tosh.0 [...]

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!). Although not a true match against the Kino’s, the Linco’s seem to hold up very well through the tests. Looks like a solid design with a great output at a budget filmmaker price. [...]

Adjustable Height DSLR Camera Tripod Base
January 30, 2011


Tweet

Express35.com DSLR Rigs and Accessories
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. This is a missing component with most rigs which were compensated with battery [...]

Speedlite Flash Modifier Kit
January 30, 2011


Tweet

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 [...]

[Above] SpiderTrax Rotational Video Dolly
The SpiderTrax Rotational video dolly is an interesting little product with a long personal history.

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. End results between these two micro flyers would be the same once you have them fine tuned and balanced. The main differences to consider [...]

Rode VideoMic vs. VideoMic Pro vs. Lavalier
January 27, 2011


Tweet

Vimeo member Carl quickly throws up some sample tests between the Rode VideoMic and VideoMic Pro. He’s also thrown in Rode’s latest Lavalier directly into the Canon 5D Mark II which sounds awesome (but is kinda pricey). Rode themselves have even left a bit of feedback in the video comments to try another test. Using [...]

Ok guys, there’s no question that readers on Cheesycam are interested in gear. It’s a big part of why people come here. The other day someone asked about upgrading from their Glidecam HD2000 to the HD4000, and then someone else in the same day mentioned ‘downgrading’ from an HD4000 to HD2000. It only makes sense [...]

Rode VideoMic Pro Compact Shotgun Microphone
Not long ago Rode announced a new VideoMic Pro and now it’s available. Didn’t I just grab a new Microphone Windscreen over my VideoMic? This does not appear to be a replacement for the already popular VideoMic, but a new microphone altogether. Smaller form factor, better shock mounting, external [...]

Comments Off

Tweet

If you’re wondering which LCD Viewfinder would fit the 60D LCD screen, it would be the same aspect as the T2i. You can find some good ones here: http://cheesycam.com/best-new-view-finder-t2i-60d-5d-mark-ii-7d-nikon/

Well first I want to point out that I don’t suggest mounting an LCD View Finder on the Canon 60D while the LCD is swung out. Adding [...]
