26Sep Ikelite Underwater Housing Sony HX9V


Tweet

Sony HX9V Ikelite Underwater Housing
The Sony HX9V is an amazing point and shoot HD video camera shooting 60fps even in full 1080HD. One thing I was looking forward to most this past summer was the ability to take it underwater. A bit late for my California Summer water activities, but still exciting news for other [...]

25Sep Canon 60D T3i Swivel LCD ViewFinder – Swi-View


Tweet

Anyone catch the new CarrySpeed non-permanent NeoPrene swivel LCD mount to hold a View Finder? If you’re not digging the Sticky Frame solutions, or the Quick Release Frame solution, then another option is this Swi-View. It slides in place over the LCD and held snug with a bit of velcro. Shown on a Canon 60D, [...]

24Sep First Digic 5 Canon SX40 Camera In Stock


Tweet

Earlier I mentioned that Canon was releasing two new point and shoot cameras (Canon S100 and Canon SX40 IS) with the latest Digic 5 processor. This new processor is said to be 6x faster and have 75% less noise with enhanced imagery. That means cleaner images in low light situations. If you want a smaller [...]

23Sep Wondlan Wearable Support (thing)


Tweet

Wondlan’s showing off some type of ‘wearable support’ (shown above) that can be used to unload the weight from camera stabilizers like the Wondlan Ares (Merlin-like). Seems like the same idea Glidecam has with their Body-Pod.

Glidecam Body Pod for Hand-Held Stabilizer
But unlike Glidecam’s Body Pod, Wondlan shows how it can be used to support [...]

23Sep Tamron Lens Rebates


Tweet
Tamron currently has some Mail-in rebates offered on pretty much all of their lenses. One particular lens that might be of interest is Tamron’s 17-50mm F/2.8 with VC (image stabilization). A much cheaper alternative if you compare to the equivalent range of Canon’s 17-55mm IS which runs just over $1100 dollars. Correct me if i’m [...]

23Sep Fake Nikon D7000 Battery Grip


Tweet

Lee Morris of F-Stoppers picks up a NIkon battery grip, that turns out, it’s really not a battery grip. For those on a budget we often choose aftermarket, but at least we know of our decision. Picking up a complete knock-off being marketed (and priced) as the real thing is bad news. Anyways, if [...]

Alzo’s latest Multi-Mount serves the same purpose to hold accessories like a DSLR cage, and at the same time provides a shock mount for your Microphones / Portable Recorders. Looks like there’s no need to buy silly homemade shock mounts just for your Zoom H1 or a separate bracket to mount your JuicedLink DS214, this [...]

22Sep Tekkeon Battery + 900 LED Test


Tweet

This test is in reference to my eariler post (found here). So I charged up the Tekkeon overnight and setup this Timelapse test. The reason I used a Timelapse method was to determine if the light output would change during the duration of battery use. I locked the exposure on the camera to 1/25th F/4 [...]

21Sep Zacuto EVF Mounting Option – CheeseStick Bar


Tweet

Zacuto’s introduced a new CheeseStick bar for the Z-EVF that will allow more flexible mounting options. (surprised it wasn’t named something like Z-heesestick?) Instead of using the lonely 1/4-20″ thread below the Z-EVF, you’ll now have a variety of mounting points along the top or the back (depending on how you install the cheesestick). Found [...]

I’m all for traveling light, shooting with small cameras, and using Mini Stabilizer Rigs, but I don’t know about this new one. It’s being offered from the same guys selling the inexpensive single filter DSLR Mattebox (found here).
This new Mini Rig is a two handle flat folding design, that can be reconfigured for an [...]

21Sep Plastic MatteBox – Price Discounted


Tweet
Hey remember that plastic MatteBox / Sunshade I mentioned about two months ago and said ‘Don’t do it!’? Still for only about $65 dollars, there were many people who picked up on it and said it served a purpose for what they needed it for (aesthetics?).
Well here we are just 60 days in from [...]

21Sep Nikon’s Latest Mirrorless Camera


Tweet

Nice little insight on Nikon’s latest ‘1 series’ Mirrorless cameras that they were trying to drum the press up about. I guess they are basing everything around the number ‘1′ because of the 1″ sensor size. Sounds great when you say it’s 4 times the size of most point and shoot sensors, not so great [...]
