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).
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...
Product Description The Senal SMH-1200 Enhanced Studio Monitor Headphones are tuned for accurate music reproduction and studio monitoring.
