17Aug No Name Stabilizer


Tweet

(Above) Video was just for fun, don’t take it seriously
I’ve probably tested more stabilizers than the Brady Bunch Family has fingers and toes (combined). Not everything makes it on the blog, because it just ends up as wasted sapce. Now i’m not saying some of these stabilizers ‘won’t fly’. What I look into and weigh [...]

16Aug Sony HX9V Spun on Painters Pole + Palo Alto


Tweet

After recently posting up the Palo Alto adapter from PhotographyandCinema.com, I decided to take mine out for a spin (literally). With this little adapter and a cheap Shurline Pole, you can get some really cool views in both Photos and in videos. It’s more than strong enough for something like the Sony HX9V. This time [...]

16Aug A Quick Release Shoulder Strap


Tweet

If you’re like me, I have no straps mounted on my camera. Not always ideal, so here’s something a friend showed me. This is a Calumet Aircell Neoprene quick strap. Not only comfortable, flexible, and padded, but it allows you to quickly remove the strap when it’s not needed. A good thing for people who [...]

Tweet

Let me warn you now that this video is about 25 minutes long. It’s a thorough video explaining all the bits about the SmallHD DP4-EVF. If you jump on over to about 19 minutes in, you see a Drop, Throw, Toss, Helicopter Crash, Car Crash, DP4 damage test. Yeah I know some of you might [...]

14Aug 90 Degree DSLR Rig Clamps and Spud


Tweet
Rigs are often compared to Lego systems, since they can be assembled according to your imagination. It’s hard to justify the cost of industry standard 15mm rigs if all you need it for is to stabilize your camera. You can already do this with a few broomsticks and duct tape.
It starts to make more [...]

Tweet

Self Portrait GoPro HD, Palo Alto, Shureline Painters Pole
If you’re familiar with the Palo Alto adapter for Painters Poles, it’s back online with a very very limited amount. This is just a fun little adapter that will add a standard 1/4×20 thread to the top of any painters pole for added height to small cameras. [...]

14Aug Gini Follow Focus – Almost Complete


Tweet
Well Gini is definitely all ears and listening to feedback. Here’s a look at a more complete Gini Follow Focus. All things black anodized, magnetic marking disc holders. Still lacks a pointer and packaged lens gear, but obviously something that anyone can add on. Shipping prices have also come back down from the $150+, so [...]

12Aug Canon 100mm Macro IS – Coffee Mug Replica


Tweet

Here’s the background story. During the Winter Olympics, Canon released some limited edition Lens Replica Coffee Mugs to the press. The world went nuts, but these were limited edition items. These lens replicas sold for hundreds of dollars at auction. Rumor is that Canon had these made by a factory over seas (China?), and since [...]

12Aug Motorized Lazy Susan – Heavy Duty


Tweet

A project I worked on a while back when I was requested to spin a person around with a green screen background. I needed a Lazy Susan that could carry a large amount of weight and still flow like butter, or actually flow better than butter. Maybe flow more like ‘I can’t believe it’s not [...]

11Aug Canon 5D Mark III


Tweet

It’s been several years, and there’s no secret about Canon replacing the 5D Mark II. The big question on everyone’s mind is when? I’m not a rumor guy, I myself rely on CanonRumors.com for that sort of stuff. But I just received a teeny weeny bit of news not mentioned elsewhere (from a reliable source) [...]

11Aug Gini gone Mini – Mini Follow Focus


Tweet
Looks like Gini is still looking to create more accessories outside of the standard Shoulder rig. Just recently introduced a full size (incomplete-like) Follow focus, and now there’s the Gini Mini (rhymes). What’s up with the unfinished look? Interesting how someone was just asking me about a super tiny FF to be used on a [...]

10Aug Express35 DSLR Rig – Event


Tweet

Here’s a closer look at the inline version of the ‘EVENT’ DSLR rig from Express35. There is so many good things about this rig, but overall you’ll find the price is the best part. Express35 stabilizers are made in the USA, and it’s quality rivals many of the top local DSLR Stabilizer brands, and yet [...]

09Aug DIY DSLR Logo Shirts


Tweet
Just for fun, I wanted to sport some basic Tees with association to DIYs and DSLRs. A friend started running through a few different ink and shirt color combinations to see which I like better. No shameless website plugs, just a simple design with the letters “DIY” and an image of a DSLR. No plans [...]
