DIY Battery Pack for DSLR Camera
December 28, 2010


Tweet

The idea to create an external power pack was to wire up a dummy battery into the camera and connect a 7.4v rechargeable RC battery. That voltage would be the same as the original camera battery (for canon), so ideally this should work. I mentioned the idea after seeing Swintronix and posted an article here: [...]

Meike Changes DSLR LCD ViewFinders
December 14, 2010


Tweet

OK, the first part of the video is me testing out the Sony SLTA55 and it’s Auto Focus and Auto Exposure features. I’m not a fan of ‘Auto Exposure’, but as you can see the ‘Auto Focus’ kicks butt and works pretty fast. Not ideal for every situation, and with lots of movement happening in [...]

Canon 7D + Tokina 11-16mm – Will She Fly?
December 6, 2010


Tweet

The Flycam Nano video I posted recently with the Canon 60D + Sigma 20mm seems to have been a big hit. eBay seemed to have sold quite a few of them, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they would be out of stock soon. It’s happened a few times before. After posting my video with [...]

Top Three Fast F/2.8 wides with Image Stabilization
November 12, 2010


Tweet
Image stabilization or ‘IS’ is what Canon calls it, Vibration Compensation or ‘VC’ is a Tamron term, and Anti Shake ‘OS’ a.k.a Optical Stabilization is Sigma’s phrase. Yeah that last one didn’t match up very well, but it’s an all important feature for today’s run and gun hand held DSLR video renegades. It’s also going [...]
