17Mar Folding Video Tripod Track Dollies


Tweet

DSLR Video Sliders are great, but you’re limited to a short run and narrow rails. When you need something that can track for longer movements, then you’re getting into track dolly territory. Track dollies are especially handy if you’re working on uneven ground (cement, light gravel, short grass). Lay down a 1″ PVC pipe or [...]

13Mar Konova Motorized Upgrade Kit – Now Available


Tweet

Konova threw up a few Timelapse teasers of their Motorized upgrade kit a few days ago. With a motorized attachment, you will definitely get more consistent movement time and time again as opposed to operating by hand. One con of course is the added noise from said motor.

12Mar Nikon Lens Guide – DSLRVIDEOSHOOTER


Tweet

I just had a back and forth comment conversation about adapting Nikon Manual lenses, and here’s a video from Caleb Pike of DSLRVIDEOSHOOTER.com that might help break down some of those questions. As far as adapting random lenses to smaller sensor cameras, Nikon’s manual aperture ring makes them one of the favorites. The fact that [...]

12Mar 5GHZ Wireless HDMI Transmitter Receiver

I’ve been successfully using the Asus WiCast device powered up with my Tekkeon battery packs for a DIY Wireless HD Video stream from my DSLR to a remote LCD monitor (as seen in video here).

10Mar Telescoping Chain Roller Background Support Kits


Tweet
[Update] Kit doesn’t come with Autopoles. Thanks guys.
Your typical background support comes with two tall stands and a horizontal support bar. Most of us have a set, but there are a few things that can be annoying. For one, the legs on the stand seem to take up extra space. Secondly, when you need to [...]

An unboxing video from YouTube member Michael19801234 of the latest Opteka SteadyVid Pro Video Stabilizer.

09Mar Fiio E11 Battery Powered Headphone Amp


Tweet

For those that don’t want to sync audio in post you may attempt to plug a microphone (like a Rode VideoMic, LAV mic, or Wireless Mic Receiver) directly to the camera’s 3.5mm mic input, and then adjust levels from within the camera (unless you’re stuck with AGC). One problem is that the camera’s internal preamp [...]
