The new Canon EOS Rebel T4i comes with everything we’ve already come to expect from a typical Canon Rebel camera including swivel LCD screen (it’s now Touch Screen LCD with Swipe, Pinch, and Zoom support), but the stand out feature is the continuous Auto Focus [...]

Cinevate FS100 Lens Adapter Rig
June 6, 2012


Tweet

Cinevate’s latest gear for the Sony FS100 blew me away when I saw it at NAB2012. I can’t think of a better rig for the FS100. Not just a basic lens adapter to suit every lens that matters, but cheesed out and ready to build out with your rail system. Unfortunately i’m not a Sony [...]

May 27, 2012


Tweet

Tony Carretti shares a find on a very inexpensive EM-320E shotgun condenser microphone for less than $20 dollars and claims he’s getting better results than from his other Rode VideoMic on longer cable runs with XLR. [Thanks Tony]. Getting your microphone as close to the subject is key. In most cases any microphone is [...]

Magnifty LCD Magnifier
May 21, 2012


Tweet

Here’s a product some of you might find interesting, although I have to admit it’s probably not too far off for DIY makers to craft up their own version. The Magnifty is a large Magnifier attached on 15mm rails magnifies the image on your LCD to help you get better focus. Other products like the [...]

Opteka 4lb Brick CounterWeight
May 11, 2012


Tweet

I purchased a few Vinyl covered Scuba Dive weights to be used as a DIY counterweight on a Gini Rig (seen here), and also ended up also using them for the DIY Crane (seen here). It’s much more expensive than basic round Gym weights, but they are smaller and have a much better aesthetic appeal [...]

Driving both still and video capture is the FX-format CMOS 36.3Mp sensor and the powerful EXPEED 3 image-processing engine. Backing up the heart of the camera you’ll find an optical low-pass filter that reduces false color [...]

DIY Video Shooter Support
December 3, 2011


Tweet

YouTube member TheEthanThompson has a very simple idea on how to use an articulating friction arm to add a bit of extra support when shooting hand held. The arm can be positioned much like a gun stock / target shooter to add an extra point of contact. My guess is you’ll need at least the [...]

DIY Motorized Pico Flex Table Dolly
November 23, 2011


Tweet

Great job from Vimeo member Oliver for this DIY motorized Pico Flex Table Dolly. It’s a direct friction based drive wheel, which doesn’t require much torque. The dolly rolls very easily with little effort from a motor. I was testing out something similar several weeks ago using a pulley wheel to a continuous rotating servo [...]

The Canon 24-70mm F/2.8L is one of the most popular lenses for event photographers. It’s also one of my favorite lenses for video since it can focus fairly close. Good range of zoom, and maintains a decent F/2.8 aperture throughout for low light shooting. I heard there was a sale going on over at B&H, [...]

Luma Loop Camera Strap Killed off by Black Rapid
November 17, 2011


Tweet

Interesting post over at Petapixel, about how the Luma Loop strap was killed off. I’ve heard some rumors about possible bully tactics. Even if there are no patent violations, small companies can’t defend themselves when threatened with a lawsuit and are left to dissolve because of the possibility of high lawyer fees. Another rumored tactic [...]

Rotating Video Shot with Model
October 26, 2011


Tweet

I happened across a small forum over at http://videocopilot.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&p=257799 where they were wondering how this rotating shot was done above. They seem to be going more towards large circular dolly tracks huge sets, with rotating backgrounds. All too complicated.
I’m not a registered forum guy, but hopefully someone will see this and answer their questions [...]
