Tweet
The Panasonic GH3 camera pretty much runs me all day on a single battery. In fact we covered several products at NAB 2014 without ever having to swap out a battery during the conference. Still if you think you need to use the Panasonic GH3 battery grip for extra battery life, you’ll quickly find that [...]

13Mar Kamerar QV-1 M LCD View Finder for Mirrorless Systems


Tweet
For mirrorless shooters the built in EVF works wonders for photography. Still many will prefer to work with the rear LCD display and an LCD View Finder Loupe for video work. The problems is trying to find one that fits since typical mirrorless bodies are so compact. The new Kamerar QV-1 ‘M’ is a spin [...]

OEM Panasonic Battery Grip will run you $199 dollars (as seen here). The good news is now there are aftermarket battery grips available for the Panasonic GH3 camera starting around $65 bucks.

21Aug Field of View 5D Mark II vs. GH3 vs. BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera


Tweet
If you caught my recent video shot entirely on the BlackMagic Pocket Cinema, you’ll probably find quite a few wide angle shots. That’s because I tried very hard to include only native MFT lenses especially the Panasonic 7-14mm & Rokinon 8mm Fisheye.
For anyone looking to adapt non-MFT Lenses (without a speed booster) to the [...]

Not sure how many of you are already working with the Panasonic GH3 Camera, but I enjoyed working with this camera so much I ended up with a second one just a few weeks after. I was never a big MFT shooter, until I started working with the GH3. For the price, It’s hard to [...]

16Mar Panasonic GH3 with 12-35mm F/2.8 Moisture Resistant

Shot this a while back, but I thought I’d share one experience I had while visiting a rain forest exhibit. Temperature was cold outside and then stepping into the exhibit the camera immediately fogged up. Even though I wiped the lens down, it continued to fog up. It actually took about 15 minutes before the [...]
