31May Panasonic GH2 or GH1?


Tweet

While there are some Panasonic GH2 cameras available at current rip-off prices, the older GH1 is stepping back into the spotlight. Previous GH1 cameras with older firmware could be hacked into what was called the GH13 or GH1.3. The hacks provided more features than the standard GH1, which included higher video bitrates and additional [...]

31May VF Prime LCD View Finder Review


Tweet
v
Vimeo member Just Basl Productions gives us his opinion on the VF Prime LCD view finder. This is a 3″ LCD View Finder, so it will crop a bit on a T2i, T3i, or Canon 60D if you choose to use it. It’s not the cheapest LCD Viewfinder solution, but it’s also not the most [...]

31May 160 LED old – 170 LED new


Tweet
The 160 LED Video Lights (larger brother of the popular 126) is now old news. You’ll find many of the pricing on the 160’s coming down fairly cheap, but that could be due to a slightly better version that is now out with 170 LEDs.

Latest version – 170 Dimmable LED Video Light
I’m not [...]

30May C Mount Lens Tests on GF1


Tweet

I picked up the Panasonic GF2 camera lately because I wanted something small and really lightweight. Sure you can adapt Nikon or Canon lenses, but that took so much away from being ’small and lightweight’. An excellent solution for Sony NEX and Micro Four-Third cameras are to use CCTV or ‘C-Mount’ lenses. Here’s an excellent [...]

30May Sigma SD1 46MP Camera


Tweet
This latest SD1 46MP DSLR from Sigma does not shoot video. The 46MP sensor is actually calculated from individual layers of RGB, with each layer capturing a little more than 15MP each. This camera is extremely old news for those who follow Photography cameras, but just wanted to post the latest news on pricing. For [...]

29May Amazon – Top Selling DSLR Cameras


Tweet
According to Amazon’s list of Top Selling DSLR cameras, Nikon’s D5100 has been numero uno for about a month and a half. I’m pretty sure these sales aren’t for hard core DSLR video shooters, but possibly more for Photographers. Nikon is excellent when it comes to still image qualities. The #2 spot belongs to the [...]

29May Duracell Compact Flash 600x Review ?


Tweet
Looks like Duracell’s found a Compact Flash manufacturer to slap their name onto. These are newly released 600x speed cards, which the real company ‘Dane Elec’ doesn’t appear to have had before Duracell. One article stated the true speeds are actually closer to 500x, not sure if that’s true, but that’s still quite a bit [...]

28May Memorial Day Weekend Auctions


Tweet
What’s the best part about an extended Memorial 3 Day weekend here in the US? Everyone has travel and vacation plans. It’s time to just hang out, lounge, and enjoy the time off. Since everyone is out and about, another good thing is the lack of Internet traffic and sales. A bad thing if you’re [...]

Good news for your Nikon fans, seems like all of those popular Nikon models that were ‘out of stock’ for the last several months has a fresh inventory in at B&H.

27May LED Light Panel Carry Bags


Tweet

LED Video Light Panel Carry Case
Chris writes in and shares this find. Apparently there’s travel bags available for the 1200 LED video lights. It definitely makes it easier to get a handle on and keeps the barndoors and switches from snagging, but doesn’t look super duper padded. The size of the bag is 19″L [...]

26May HOT – 240 LED Bi-Color LED Video Lights


Tweet

Not sure how many people remember the 240 Bi-Color Dimmable LED Video light I posted about a short while back. It was a mysterious 240 LED light that showed up on eBay, and the moment I posted about it, it disappeared. Never to be heard from again. Well these 240 LED lights are back online, [...]

25May SmallHD DP6 HDMI LCD


Tweet

The SmallHD DP6 is a serious monitor with some seriously cool features. The price tag may not hit home for the starting shooter, but if you’re shopping for a monitor around the 5″ mark, the SmallHD puts most others to shame. We’re not talking your average 800×480 resolution (yes check those LCD specs carefully), we’re [...]

25May Steadicam Merlin – Quick Overview


Tweet

No matter how many Honda Civics are out on the road, there will always be the other guy who’d rather drive the more expensive Porsche. Sure it’s apples to oranges, but if you just need to make a trip to the grocery store, the end result is the same. My point being that a flying [...]

25May ‘New’ Flycam Nano DSLR Video


Tweet

Moderately impressive video on this most confusing ‘latest’ Flycam Nano DSLR Stabilizer. I say ‘moderately impressive’ because it’s not that you couldn’t already do all these tricks with any other version of stabilizer. Aside from what looks to be overall bigger (so it can carry more weight), there’s not a lot of information about what’s [...]

One accessory that was recently released is the LCD BacPac and new firmware that opens up an entirely new world of features. From little things like losing the proper time/date when the battery [...]
