The D-Fuse Softbox is an Instant quick to setup Softbox for LED Video Light Panels. No tools, no loose parts, no assembly. When it's time to pack up, the softbox folds down to a very small compact lightweight size. They now offer three different sizes depending on the size of your LED light panel. The two shown in the video (below) are designed to fit the Aputure Amaran 528 and Aputure 672 LED Panels perfectly, and the larger Aputure LightStorm LS1 LED Panels.

Remember that these Softboxes are Universal and you will find they can fit many other Popular LED Light Panels. The largest 12x12 should make a perfect Softbox for the LitePanels Astra, and the smallest version will also fit perfectly with the CAME-TV 576B and 576D Ultra Slim LED Light Panels (tried it myself). For more information about the D-Fuse Instant Pop Up LED Light Softboxes check out the product pages (here).

The T5 includes a padded carrying case with comfortable shoulder strap and side handle.

The COB120 is a new bright LED light by Aputure that uses one high power LED Chip and offers a Bowens mount to take advantage of the thousands of different light modifiers typically used for photo strobes.

Normally to get your DJI OSMO up high, people are attaching the entire unit to the end of an extension pole. Completely functional but it does position all of your joystick controls away from the operator and adds more weight to the end of your pole.

Kamerar has a different approach and has designed a simple but useful Extension Adapter to quickly get those shots up high, down low, and would allow you to mimic those sweeping jib shots with ease. Here's a quick overview video of the DJI OSMO Extender by Kamerar.

Again, the benefit to this adapter for your DJI OSMO is having all of the native controls in the palm of your hand, and less weight to manage at the end of your extension. The Kamerar Extender Adapter for the DJI OSMO starts shipping in a few weeks, pre-orders available now (click here).

Here's a quick interview video from the 2016 Cinegear Expo with company High Sight. They offer a few different models of Cable Cams. These tools are often easier to use than Drones (not to mention quieter), offers longer run time, can fly through tight spaces, shots are easily repeatable, and pretty much legal to use in most cases Drones are not allowed.

One feature that High Sight Cable Cams offer is a setting A/B end points allowing you to focus on camera tracking and not worrying about reaching the end of your line. Below is a video example produced using the High Sight Cable Cam.

Aputure has some of the most popular LED Panels available for the budget shooter, and now they've added a nice high power single point source LED Light called the LightStorm COB120. If you've worked with Fresnels, the new COB120 can be used in similar ways. Still photographers who are now working with continuous lighting will also be familiar with it's MonoLight type form factor. With a Bowens Mount adapter, you'll also be able to use many available Light Modifiers such as a Beauty Dish, Softboxes, Snoots, etc.

They say the new COB120 may have the equivalent to a 1K-1.5K fresnel which is very good output for an LED Light of this size. There is a fan built in to dissipate heat, but they say it's extremely quiet, similar to the fan found in the Mac Pro (trashcan). The new Aputure LightStorm COB120 will be available over at B&H (click here).

As camera systems get smaller one design issue could be the smaller batteries that leave us with short run times. This is especially true with many of Sony's mirrorless camera systems. If you're looking for longer run times, IndiPro Tools has a number of different Battery and Power solutions available as seen in this interview during the NAB 2016 show.

One important design difference with the IndiPro Tools cables they point out is having DC converters placed outside of the dummy battery. Not only does this reduce any possible heat from generating inside the camera (problem for some Sony cameras), but they also say it prevents any digital noise (a.k.a RF, EMI, etc.) that could affect your recorded footage.

You can find IndiPro Tools External Battery and Power Solutions over at B&H (click here).
