27Jun Canon 5D Mark III with Eye-Fi Wireless SDHC Card


Tweet

The camera in the iPhone is fast and easy, but it’s still limited to what it can do. If you want to step up the quality of images you’re sharing on Facebook, Instagram, or any other social network with your fancy DSLR, then you would need to download the images to a laptop computer and [...]

27Jun WF717 Standard 3/8″ Mount Video Fluid Head


Tweet
I guess the WF717 Fluid Head Standard 3/8″ Mount was out of stock for a few months. The 3/8″ standard mount (not bowl mount) is what is used for tripods with the extendable center column (neck). It might not be the most fluid head available, but the low price and the fact that it’s made [...]

26Jun Design changes for 600 LED Light Panels?


Tweet

Thanks to Rod for sending this in. It looks like there’s a new design change around the 600 LED lights, but so far I haven’t seen the same for the 900 or 1200 panels. Still runs on AC or optional V-Mount battery, they state it’s a new model and sports a slightly more rounded chassis [...]

26Jun Flycam C5 Carbon Fiber Stabilizer


Tweet

YouTube member SteveSmithDOP gives us a tour around the new Flycam C5 Carbon Fiber stabilizer [Thanks Steve]. I’ve only seen a handful of videos from this stabilizer, and they’ve really seemed to have stepped up their build quality compared to the original Flycam stuff.

21Jun Add Grip to your Universal Lens Gear Spokes


Tweet

Tommy Williamson had problems getting his D|Gear Universal Lens Gear to stay on the Canon 50mm F/1.8 lens. Who wouldn’t? That focus ring is pretty slim. His solution was to dip the tips of the spokes in Plasti-Dip (normally used to coat the handles of tools). The Plasti-Dip is some very durable stuff, and comes [...]
