The BLUESHAPE BUBBLEPACK 65Wh Lithium-Ion Battery Pack with Charger provides several flexible rigging options for equipping your camera with a larger capacity power solution. It features a 65 Wh capacity and is intended for small to medium-sized productions. The rigging options revolve around a rail plate attached on top of the battery and a 1/4"-20 thread available on the bottom. A mini camera plate is included to be attached on the bottom of your camera, cage, or various rod clamps, and the BUBBLEPACK simply slides onto this plate via the rail plate. The 1/4"-20 thread on the bottom of the BUBBLEPACK allows you to mount the battery along with your camera or rig on a tripod, securely with up to 7 lb of load. A quick release handle on the side of the rail plate lets you slide the BUBBLEPACK off.
The BUBBLE PACK features two standard 14.8V nominal P-Tap outputs and two proprietary B-Tap outputs offering user selectable voltages of 8.4V and 11.1V output. Depending on your camera's voltage, you can use either the standard or proprietary connectors using an appropriate cable. One B-Tap to raw port cable is included and can be configured with the connector of your choice. The unused connectors can be used to power accessories at the same time as the camera. A compact wall charger is included and provides a full charge in approximately two hours. The BUBBL EPACK features a 4 LED gauge that displays remaining battery life.
An optional BLUESHAPE V-Bracket Adapter or Belt-Mount Adapter can also be used for attaching the BUBBLEPACK to a V-mount plate or wearing it around your waist. A large selection of BLUESHAPE P-Tap adapter cables is also optionally available for connecting the BUBBLEPACK to your camera.

Camera Motion Research is now offering Flexible Thin HDMI Cables which are often sought for when using monitors on Gimbals stabilizers. The lightweight thin cable prevents influence to the camera's stabilization, and many of their cables are available with right angle connections.
Today many people are using smaller gimbals with smaller cameras, and it could be a tight fit to get to the HDMI output. They even offer a unique Type D to Type D HDMI cable which is not common, especially with a right angle + flexible thin design. This is perfect for many accessories such as the SlingStudio CameraLink.
You can find the new Camera Motion Research Flexible Thin HDMI Right Angle Cables available (here).

TIP: With a few spare parts you may already have laying around, you can put together a solid adjustable Smartphone or Tablet Holder for the DJI Mavic Pro remote or DJI Spark remote.
If you're looking for an iPad (tablet) holder, this one should work great: http://amzn.to/2xPM2a9

I had just unboxed the new Cinevate Horizen Slider, and this is just one small feature that blew me away! The surface of the flywheel (possibly conductive) passes through a stationary magnet, creating a magnetic field that opposes the magnetic field of the stationary magnet - thus creating drag force that is proportional to its velocity! Basically the same technology you'll find in the braking system of a Super Train!
Zero contact, zero friction, zero wear! And because of this feature they were also able to reduce the weight of the flywheel as they don't need to rely on pure mass. This is by far the most innovative variable drag ever implemented on a video slider! To think this is just one of sooo many new innovative features. If you're thinking about the #Cinevate #Horizen it will not disappoint. It's even ready to accept motion control (optional add-on).
I'll be covering more features later, but this is definitely a game changing innovation as far as video sliders go and had to share this right away. More information about the Cinvevate Horizen Slider can be found (here).
Two short video samples (below) testing out the Tokina 11-20mm F/2.8 (with an old metabones speedbooster) on the Panasonic GH5 Camera.
The lens remains rectilinear (straight lines) even at the widest setting, and combined with a focal reducer you're actually faster than an F/2.8 (which is better for dim lighting). I believe if I upgrade to a more recent Metabones XL Adapter, i'll get sharper results. But it's pretty darn good as is.
For moving the camera, i'm testing out the CAME-TV Prophet Gimbal which is designed to fly heavier camera setups. The combination of speedbooster and Canon EF type Lens may be a bit heavy for the smaller Optimus gimbal.
Created for outdoor aerial imaging, the CrystalSky monitor
features an ultra-bright screen that is clearly visible in sunlight.
It is designed from the ground up to work seamlessly with the
DJI GO app, giving camera operators total control.
A maximum 2000 cd/m² of brightness means the CrystalSky monitor is more than four times as bright as typical mobile devices. On-screen details are clear and sharp, and colors are vibrant, giving the quality needed to fine tune image composition. A dedicated Sunlight Readability Enhancement mode is especially designed for processing the image in real-time to ensure more comfortable viewing under bright light.

With Real Estate interiors you always try to make the spaces look big. Normally I would do interiors on a gimbal with a Panasonic GH5 and 7-14mm Lens.For this setup I tried the Sony A6500 combined with the Sony 10-18mm Lens. It's not a bad combo if you're into this type of stuff...
