25Feb The Shift without the Shift – 500mm Mirror Lens


Tweet
I’m still set on getting some type of Tilt Shift lens (eventually), but if you just want to experiment putting some videos together you can do this without an actual Tilt Shift lens. One of the popular tricks is to shoot far. Really far. Here’s an example of a Tilt Shift video I posted that [...]

Micro Four Thirds 4/3 Tilt Shift 50mm F/2
Owning Canon DSLR’s make it pretty expensive to get into some decent Tilt Shift lenses, but for Micro Four Third cameras there’s more options and come a bit cheaper. Looking to get some Tilt Shift action going on the GH2 there’s a few inexpensive lenses I’ve been [...]

24Feb New MacBook Pro with ThunderBolt


Tweet

The new MacBook Air was a great announcement for the traveling telecommuter, but nothing to glance about for Video editors. Now the announcement of this new MacBook Pro with super fast ThunderBolt port might be an eye opener. A new port that’s 12 times faster than Firewire 800 and 20 times faster than USB 2.0? [...]

24Feb DIY Canon T3i / 600D LCD View Finder Mount


Tweet

With the Canon EOS T3i / 600D out in the marketplace, this marks Canon’s second Vari-Angle LCD DSLR. Thinking of a different way to mount a View Finder to cameras similar to the Canon 60D’s swivel out monitor, I tinkered around with the idea of using the some cheap hot shoe adapters.
In this configuration [...]

24Feb Cleaning Up the DIY 14V Battery Pack


Tweet

So it was very last minute for me to get a 14v battery pack thrown together for my 352 Ring Light Steadicam project here: http://cheesycam.com/last-minute-glidecam-mods/. Now that I have a bit of time, i’m going to get off these non-pro looking RC batteries and rig up my 2 year old LP-E6 generic non-decoded batteries.
Gutting [...]

It’s been a while since we’ve seen the ol’ DIY Cage in use, but this one turned out pretty cool. He’s got a few enhancements over the very basic design which you can find more about it over at Vimeo member Ben Sheriff’s page. [Thanks Ben Turned out Great]

24Feb JuicedLink Pricing on DS214 – Now Available


Tweet

Ok, so you got your DSLR and fancy new Rode VideoMic Pro with +20db feature. If you’ve got AGC on the T2i (without ML) or Canon 7D, then you need a way to disable AGC. Or maybe you don’t? Maybe you’ve got a Canon 5D Mark II or 60D with Manual audio levels – no [...]

23Feb Clone Central – India


Tweet
Wow, the store front really expanded for this tiny eBay seller. I’ve had my eye on them for a while now as they had a few interesting items. Today they just really loaded up with a bunch of new items. Two of them are some serious clones. First most interesting item is the ‘mysterious’ clone [...]

23Feb Z96 Powered from RC Batteries


Tweet

Remember the batteries I threw together for my Flying Ring Light? Turns out the Z96 uses the same connector as my 352 LED Ring Light. I think i’ll stop by Radio Shack to get an exact part number and size on the fitting that’s being used so that other people can make a DIY battery [...]

23Feb Konova Slider Earns a New Position


Tweet

Not sure if you can see the thumbnail in the video, but something about that slider doesn’t look quite right. Oh yeah it’s upside down! Vimeo member phoSumpro! shows a new way to use the Konova slider. Actually seems like a new way to use any camera slider. By mounting the slider upside down with [...]

23Feb Comer-like 1800 Lumen LED Video Light


Tweet

Heard of Comer LED Video Lights? It’s a damn good LED Video light with a damn good price tag attached of over $300 dollars and doesn’t even come with a battery. The design of the Comer lights are also much different than just a flat square panel full of LED bulbs. The second generation of [...]

22Feb Atomos Ninja – Any Day Now


Tweet

If you’ve been following the long wait for the Atomos Ninja HDMI recorder, then you’ll know it should start shipping this week (hopefully). It’s a sexy little unit that acts like a low res monitor, but is really a portable recorder to capture uncompressed Video goodness. Many times this is done by connecting a Video [...]

22Feb Sub $30 Dollar 4.3″ Mini LCD


Tweet

Not long ago I toyed around with a 3.5″ mini LCD for about $26 dollars. It also worked on the GoPro HD Cameras that (at the time) lacked any LCD viewing. Now that GoPro has released their LCD BacPac there’s no need for this. It definitely would have helped the guys out while shooting testing [...]
