11Jul Canon T4i / 650D with Battery Grip BG-E8


Tweet

For every other Canon DSLR camera like the 7D, 5D Mark II, 60D, and 5D Mark III you’ll need a totally different grip. One good thing about the Rebel series cameras is that they continue to share the same LP-E8 battery type along with the same BG-E8 Battery Grip. A cheap BG-E8 grip for the [...]

21Jun Helpful Tip for Canon EOS T4i Charger


Tweet

Ok, so I have the new Canon EOS T4i, and what always bugs me about these LP-E8 chargers is the long cord that’s messy to pack up. A while back Kay shared this tip with the Canon T2i chargers, and it still applies to the Canon T3i and Canon T4i. If you had just a [...]

08Jun Vello mini LCD Hood Sunshade


Tweet

If you’re trying to prevent glare on the screen, you could use an LCD viewfinder. Of course it makes it harder to see the screen from certain angles without having your eye placed directly into the Loupe. In these situations, maybe a simple sunshade or LCD hood would be a better choice.
I’ve seen the folding [...]

11Oct Canon T3 Bundle Deal – Blah..


Tweet
A Canon T3 (not T3i) bundle shows up on the eBay deals page. Not very exciting since the bundle is based around a cheaper camera strap, SDHC card, camera bag, card case, card reader, lens cleaning kit, and mini tripod. Surprisingly though, they sold over 70 units, several dozen today. You can check out other [...]

29Sep CarrySpeed Swi-View Neoprene Swivel LCD ViewFinder Mount


Tweet

What can I say? It’s simple, it works. As you can see it works on the GH2 perfectly without losing view of the entire LCD. Of course it works on the T3i and 60D. The velcro design and stretchy neoprene means it’s adjustable to fit a variety of different cameras or even a variety of [...]

06Jul Lexar follows Buy Two and Save Deal

Earlier I posted some big savings that SanDisk was offering of it’s Compact Flash media and SDHC cards. You can find that article here: http://cheesycam.com/sandisk-media-huge-deals/. Lexar is now offering a Buy Two and save type deal on many of their media cards, so if Transcend wasn’t good enough, Sandisk doesn’t meet your needs, then Lexar [...]

29Jun Canon 60D T3i LCD ViewFinder – No Sticky


Tweet

A look at how the latest version CarrySpeed VFinder attaches to a Canon 60D with that swivel out screen. Right off the bat the metal frames might not line up perfectly, but they are easy to bend into position. If you want something super secure, I say permanently glue the sucker to the metal QR [...]

20Jun Sandisk SDHC Class 10 Media Cards


Tweet
Some people swear by shooting only cards that are 8GB in capacity Max. I shoot with 32GB cards, call me a Danger Seeker. Some people shoot only Sandisk media. I personally shoot with the Transcend Class 10 or 400x Media Cards.
Regardless of anyone’s rhyme or reason you can grab a Sandisk 8GB SDHC Class 10 [...]

04Jun CS-Double Octopad Camera Strap Review


Tweet

Double camera straps are definitely my choice. Having two cameras is faster than swapping lenses. Normally I have a 24-70mm on one side, and a 70-200mm on the other. I’ve had the Black Rapid double straps for quite some time now. At the time, it was the best thing I could find on the market, [...]

17May Letus Hawk ViewFinder on Canon T3i w/ Battery Grip


Tweet

(Above) Was my first image of my Canon T3i fitted with a Letus Hawk View Finder. Yes it fits quite nicely, and they make it in the proper aspect ratio for the 3:2 LCD screen. What I didn’t have was the riser for a battery grip. Here’s a gallery (below) from reader HD-Tography showing you [...]

16May Proaim’s New BasePlate for ViewFinder


Tweet

The Proaim DSLR View Finder is nothing new, and personally I would prefer the VF Prime or Seagull VF, but Proaim looks to have a ‘one-up’ on the competition. This morning I was turned onto a recent BasePlate addition to Proaim’s View Finder [Thanks Greg]. Looks like they’re the next in line to follow in [...]

15May Canon 60D / T3i LCD View Finders


Tweet
Swing out LCD’s are great for odd shooting positions, but posed some problems for DSLR LCD View Finders. The Canon 60D and T3i fall into this category. The solution is to use a frame that mounts under the camera body, but the pricing has been out of reach. Or has it?

Has anyone caught these new [...]

21Apr 128GB Lexar SDXC in Canon 60D


Tweet

If you’re wondering about what the 128GB Lexar SDXC card is good for, there’s a number of things. Besides throwing it into bitrate hungry high end cameras, another good purpose is doubling the disk space on my MacBook Air. The new Macbook Air can’t be upgraded internally, so by using a very generic SDHC card [...]
