29Mar 312 LED Video Light Price Drop – Dimmable Color Temp Adjustable


Tweet

(Old video review above) Looks like Polaroid got a hold of the 312 LED Video lights. That’s a good thing, because they seem to have negotiated prices much much lower. There is a more expensive v2.0 out which has an updated case and better plastic diffusion panel, but that will run you at least $60 [...]

25Mar Gini DSLR Cages for GH1 and GH2 Cameras


Tweet

Anyone check out the Gini DSLR Cages for Panasonic GH1 and GH2 cameras? Snug fit, looks nice, but crazy expensive.
