Word on the street is that the Budget Follow Focus (RJ Follow focus) does not come with an industry standard mount for a Crank or Whip. Jonathan throws together a simple DIY wooden version. [thanks Jonathan]

30Jun Digital SLR Belt Clip – For Audio Recorders


Tweet
For the smaller Zoom H1’s just about any small modified belt clip would work. For the larger Audio Recorders like the Zoom H4n, I’ve been thinking of good ideas for a belt clip mount. These generic DSLR quick release clips have been around for a long time, but of course I’m not trusting my heavy [...]

29Jun Canon 60D T3i LCD ViewFinder – No Sticky


Tweet

A look at how the latest version CarrySpeed VFinder attaches to a Canon 60D with that swivel out screen. Right off the bat the metal frames might not line up perfectly, but they are easy to bend into position. If you want something super secure, I say permanently glue the sucker to the metal QR [...]

Thanks to a tip from Mark, today’s Daily Deal in the Electronics category is a Canon T3 bundle that includes (2) lenses, Camera carrying case, and basic cleaning kit. Not the greatest deal if you don’t need or want the extras. This is the Canon T3 (not to be confused with T3i) which has a [...]

29Jun Hacked GH1 (GH17) Video Tutorial


Tweet
The GH1 hacked camera created quite a buzz, but fell off when newer units were shipped with ‘unhackable’ firmware. Shortly after, the GH2 was released. Not long ago an announcement was made about hacking those ‘unhackable’ GH1 cameras. This puts the GH1 back in the spotlight as a very inexpensive quality interchangeable lens video and [...]

28Jun Sandisk Media – Huge Deals!!


Tweet
Amazing deals on Sandisk media that’s hard to resist. In fact, the price break brings the super high speed, undoubtably reliable Sandisk media smack down in Transcend price territory. We’re talking about 400x on CF and Class 10 on SDHC media. Sandisk media is often counterfeited, so watch out for things that look too good [...]

Another review based around the recent Budget Follow Focus which has been coined as the RJ Follow Focus. (More news on that soon). This review from Just Basl Productions is a bit longer more thorough and should answer any questions you have, and also compares it against another Follow Focus system. A few people have [...]

25Jun Duopod Stabilizer Concept


Tweet

Looks like it’s still in the prototype phase (hence the poor shaky video samples), but the Duopod from Vimeo member Mountkestrel is a double shoulder support stabilizer, that then transforms to a ‘Steadicam-like’ handheld stabilizer. Interesting concept, I wish them all the best. But like similar products that are designed to be multi-function, i’m sure [...]

23Jun No Fog LCD View Finder


Tweet

Yes, even high end view finders could fog up. Tested a few things, and this FOGTECH anti-fog liquid works great and is easy to apply. Just apply it with a wet pad and let it dry for 5 seconds. Makes a huge difference. A good thing to wipe on the GoPro HD Hero as well [...]

23Jun Panasonic 20mm F/1.7

Panasonic 20mm F/1.7
The popular Panasonic 20mm F/1.7 lens is available again at B&HPhoto Video, which is about $50 dollars cheaper than the nice markup elsewhere (Amazon). The 20mm F/1.7 is as popular as the 50mm for a Canon DSLR. Nice shallow DOF and good focal distance (2x on Micro Four Thirds). Would go great [...]

21Jun Davis & Sanford FM18 ATPG18


Tweet
When you need to support a bit of weight for a new 4ft Jib / Crane or Camera Slider, you’ll need a solid base. As an inexpensive solution i’ve been suggesting the FT9901SLV. I have no issues with this tripod under my short 3 foot Konova slider or the latest 4ft. Glideshot crane, but under [...]

21Jun Camtree Micro Dolly IGUS Slider with Pulley System


Tweet

Roller bearing sliders have a love/hate relationship. Some people love the smooth no friction action, and some people hate the inconsistencies they might get without friction. Thanks for Martin for tipping me off on this review. YouTube member AYFilms gives us a review of the Camtree Micro Dolly. We’ve all seen IGUS Drylin based sliders, [...]
