There’s plenty of encoding options in the Cineform Studio to encode different video file types including DSLRs, and does an excellent job maintaining quality through the process. I know many [...]

In the last month, there’s more people talking about a fairly new Crocolis HD Sports Camera. In full 1080p mode, it has quite an almost normal 140 degree FOV (field of view) which [...]

Another new item added to Gini’s product line.

October 27, 2011


Tweet

Could be an error, or maybe not. Right now Amazon has a Yongnuo YN-467 listed at $4.52 + 0.50 cents shipping. [Thanks Jamaal] So for just about a grand total of $5.02 cents, you could be walking away with an extra flash.
