26Oct Fancier Small Camera Ball Head Mount


Tweet

I’ve been asked to recommend a good small ball head that would work well with the Pico Flex Dolly or a good one for small sliders. I tested out a few, and the one that seems to fit the best is the Fancier FT6691. It’s larger than the Giottos mini ball head, but still smaller [...]

26Oct Rotating Video Shot with Model


Tweet

I happened across a small forum over at http://videocopilot.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&p=257799 where they were wondering how this rotating shot was done above. They seem to be going more towards large circular dolly tracks huge sets, with rotating backgrounds. All too complicated.
I’m not a registered forum guy, but hopefully someone will see this and answer their questions [...]

25Oct Latest Follow Focus Version with A/B Hard Stops


Tweet

Speaking of DSLR follow focus systems, here’s another new one. Looks like the same RJ follow focus with a few upgrades adding in some hard stops. [Thanks Jacob]. This version is also reversible, but the mostly plastic quality will not stand a chance against the new Gini iFocus FF on the market. The hard stops [...]

25Oct Latest Gini Follow Focus – iFocus Review


Tweet

Here’s a closer look at Gini’s latest Follow Focus a.k.a. ‘iFocus’. Having been a huge fan of the Cinevate Durus design and quality, it was very obvious where Gini was getting inspiration from. I took the chance of ordering this latest FF knowing that it would be good. Especially since it’s a custom designed gearbox [...]

24Oct GoProHD Camera – Hero 2 (new version)


Tweet

GoProHD was already surprising film makers with it’s quality to size ratio, but they seemed to have found a way to make it even better. Not just 2x sharper images (bigger sensor), but more FOV (field of view) options, 120fps (yes!), more TimeLapse options, faster 10 photos in 1 second, but also mini-HDMI and external [...]

24Oct Velbon PH-368 – Back In Stock


Tweet
I posted up about a very effective (and cheap) Velbon fluid head a few weeks back and it literally sold out in a few hours. For around $26-29 dollars, it’s a great way to add on a dedicated Fluid head for camera dollies, sliders, etc. You can find the original video, article, and other comments [...]

23Oct Octagon Softbox for Portable Speedlite Flash


Tweet

Apollo Orb Softbox
I enjoy shooting with small flashes because it’s just easier to travel with and set up. I can practically pull a three piece lighting kit out of a backpack. The problem you’ll run into with small flashes is trying to diffuse it with light modifiers. Softboxes are a popular choice for portrait [...]

The different options screw in through standard ‘1/4-20 threaded inserts’. This particular flexible tripod is good for cameras weighing under 3lbs (lightweight cameras), or [...]

Looks like a solid build with adjustable hard stops, comes with different sized lens gears, an additional focus gear (possibly different pitch size), and the new version is designed with a better quick release 15mm clamp.

Vimeo member Tom Guilmette has a video from Shane Hurlbut’s Master Cinema Series launch party. The launch party in Los Angeles showcases the first three main rigs in the product line from a handheld cage, to shoulder rig, and larger eye-leveling studio setup.

20Oct Lytro Camera Shoot Now Focus Later


Tweet

The Lytro that everyone has been talking about which works much differently than traditional cameras, captures the light field, so you can shift your shallow depth of field focus after you’ve snapped a pic. If every photo camera worked in this manner, there wouldn’t be such a thing as ‘out of focus images’. With such [...]

20Oct Windcut Windshield Microphone Cover

I’m not very familiar with this company, but from the wind tests in the video sent over by YouTube member NitsanPictures, it seems to work well. Another great option furry deadcat microphone windscreen for those out in the UK. Thanks Nitsan. Available for a few different popular microphone models, found following the link (click here)
