20Jan Rode VideoMic HD and Stereo VideoMic Pro Soon?


Tweet
When Rode released it’s VideoMic Pro, the little shotgun mic was sold out for weeks. I’m anticipating the same would hold true for at least the innovative VideoMic HD with built in digital audio recorder.

19Jan Simple SunwayFoto Lens Zoom / Focus Lever


Tweet
Let’s face it, most guys won’t ever use a Follow Focus system that requires rails to mount, and lens gears to shift around. There’s plenty of people who are already happy with something as simple as a Silicone Jar Opener to help move that lens gear around. Especially for some of those Panasonic lenses that [...]

18Jan Alesis TwoTrack Portable Digital Recorder


Tweet

The Alesis TwoTrack portable digital audio recorder sees a small price drop. Yup, looks like a Zoom H1 with X/Y stereo mics, 3.5mm Mic Input, headphone monitoring, adjustable Gain, and built in Auto levels if you’re lazy. A steel threaded insert for tripod mount, and no web articles about battery drain issues. Audio can be [...]

17Jan Canon C300 Pre-Order


Tweet

The Canon C300 needs no introduction. Initially the $20K number came up somewhere during it’s announcement, and it appeared Canon failed to bring a solid camera to market at a decent price point. Now product pages are showing the number is officially just under $16K (body only). [Thanks Omar].
Sure it’s not a 4K camera, [...]

13Jan Jag35 Wireless Follow Focus V2


Tweet

Finally got around to playing with the Jag35 Wireless Follow Focus V2 prototype. First time getting it working (somewhat). There’s a procedure you need to do before throwing on something like this on your camera, so i’ll need to run through the manual and get things ironed out.
Each motor has a certain amount of [...]

13Jan Fujifilm X-Pro1 ILC


Tweet

While Sony is having a hard time keeping the Sony NEX7 camera available, Fuji will be releasing their latest X-Pro1 interchangeable lens camera very soon. This is definitely a camera to look in to if you’re all about stills. It seems most of the marketing is based around Photography tapping in to that rangefinder market. [...]
