Tekkeon Macbook MagSafe External Battery Power Cable
April 24, 2012


Tweet

Most of the editors I know work off the MacBook pro laptops, so I thought some people might find this information useful. Apple has patented and has been very protective about their MagSafe connector and has even sued a company for using it with an external battery back. Even though the company was purchasing the [...]

Camera Support – Ready Rig
April 15, 2012

VizTools HandiZoom ENG Style for DSLR
April 11, 2012


Tweet

Thanks to LJ for pointing this interesting little product that brings ENG style zooming to standard DSLR lenses. Most people might be familiar with these controls from consumer camcorders, but for some high end ENG video cameras, you can purchase various focal length lenses that come with built in zoom controls (as seen here).

7″ LCD Bag and Sun Shade Combo
April 10, 2012


Tweet
Shooting outdoors in the bright sun pretty much sucks without an LCD View Finder, but come time to pan and tilt, it’s not very comfortable when you’re in a low position. That’s where all those flip out LCDs come in handy but even the 5D Mark III falls short in that feature. This is where [...]

Solowheel Gyro Stabilized Self Balancing Wheel
April 7, 2012


Tweet

Running around with a Steadicam is possible, but besides tiring out the operator, it’s also hard to get rid of that stomping movement. Roller Blades are clever, but it’s not something that will travel through grass or gravel. The more popular solution for fast movements with a Steadicam is the Segway (as seen above). A [...]

Lexerd Anti Glare LCD Screen Protectors
March 26, 2012


Tweet
Screen protectors not only help to prevent scratches on your camera’s LCD, but some also prevent glare when viewing outdoors. It’s also something I suggest using before mounting any sticky frame LCD Viewfinders on your camera. The Lexerd brand with TrueVueâ„¢ is ultra thin, scratch proof, touch screen capable, has great reviews and is available [...]

Telescoping Chain Roller Background Support Kits
March 10, 2012


Tweet
[Update] Kit doesn’t come with Autopoles. Thanks guys.
Your typical background support comes with two tall stands and a horizontal support bar. Most of us have a set, but there are a few things that can be annoying. For one, the legs on the stand seem to take up extra space. Secondly, when you need to [...]

January 1, 2012

Once you’ve placed something on your lens like the new LCW Digi Pro Variable ND filter, which can start at 77mm and end in 82mm, you can no longer use the standard hood on your lens. Most likely you’ll be using ND filters because you’re outdoors on a bright day trying to cut down light. [...]

Adobe Lightroom 3 Noise Reduction
November 7, 2011


Tweet

I’ve always said that since Adobe Lightroom hit version 3, one of the things it does best is Noise Reduction. Don’t fear shooting photos in high ISOs if you really need to, you might be able to save it. One thing Lightroom 3 does well is to edit even compressed JPEG files in a somewhat [...]
