Ok, I received this earlier in the mailbox but got caught up in a long shoot today. I’ll get back in the studio tomorrow to shoot some photos comparing it with other viewfinders, but I wanted to at least point [...]

25May Canon 5D Mark II firmware 2.0.7


Tweet

Wow, this is totally something i’m not used to. Canon’s 5D Mark II has been out for quite a long time, but with it’s constant demand, here’s another firmware upgrade for additional improvements and fixes. One of the most demanding fixes was the problem initially found after installing the firmware 2.0.4 where the iris of [...]

18May BeachTek for DSLR Video Accessories


Tweet

 
Not long after posting about Multiple Mounting brackets you can use to add accessories to your DSLR, I was submitted this neat little mount by olahf. This Beachtek Multimount looks like it adds quite a bit of shoe type mounts which should hold up on Framed cameras such as the 5D Mark II and Canon [...]

27Apr Limited Edition Canon 5D Mark II


Tweet

The Canon EOS 5D mark II changed everything about HD Video as we know it. It’s a legend in it’s own right, and there will be a time when Canon calls for it’s End Of Life. That will be a sad sad day.. This might not be something new for many of you, but these [...]

Tweet

Ok, it’s not an upgrade for the Canon 5D Mark II, but it sure is a head turner if you ‘upgrade’ that Canon EOS 550D / T2i. These Canon 5D Mark II straps will make your friends do a double take on your gear. Who knows, it might even be cool to turn them [...]

09Apr Canon EOS 5D Mark II Firmware Update 2.0.4


Tweet

Canon released a firmware update for the 5D Mark II and then pulled it off from the website because of some problems. Yeah scary stuff if it bricks your camera.
Canon fixed the problem and released a new firmware 2.0.4. I’ve been hesitating for a long time, because if I needed 24p I would shoot with [...]

20Mar 550D Canon T2i Camera Stabilizer Video


Tweet

I posted about this Hague Mini Motion Camera Stabilizer earlier in my blogs, but I just thought I’d share with everyone what a Canon T2i looks like when balanced on the Hague. Now that high quality HD Video cameras are smaller, the Hague MMC is one good option. This stabilizer will only fly the weight [...]

03Mar DSLR Better Focusing Hoodman Loupe


Tweet
If you’re looking to get Razor Sharp focus on a DSLR, this post is for you! I’ve posted about Loupes before, but this Hoodman is just jumping off as the best price + features.
If you’re not familiar with a LCD Loupe, it covers the LCD on your camera so you can not only see [...]

01Mar Canon 550D T2i Revolution


Tweet

The Canon T2i ( a.k.a 550D ) is hands down an awesome buy for any Videographer looking to get into DSLR video cameras. Taking virtually exact Video features from the Canon 7D for less than half the price, it’s pretty much a no brainer for first time vDSLR buyers. It’s a weird time right now [...]

01Mar More CF for your Buck.


Tweet
I picked up quite a few of these Kingston Compact Flash cards for video use. They are unbelievably cheap for it’s size, and are rated to be fast enough for shooting video. They seem to work pretty awesome for the projects that i’ve been working on.
There are a few comments i’m concerned about. I’ve [...]

The above video was shot at night while we were hanging out in Emeryville, Ca waiting to pick someone up from the train station. Two things I want to point out in this video. First off i’m using the BodyPod that I created not too long ago. The camera used in the video is the [...]

26Feb Sandisk Extreme 16GB 60MB/s


Tweet
Wow, this is a great deal and just had to share with the visitors. We all run out of Video space with these high end DLSR’s so getting a decent sized card at a decent price is hard to come by. Here’s a great deal on a SanDisk Extreme that writes at 60MB/s. Not only [...]

12Feb $24.00 Shoulder Support for DSLR Cameras


Tweet

There are two things i’m playing with in this video. The first is the LCDVF from jag35.com which is a View Finder adapter that magnifies your lcd so that you can clearly see what’s in focus or not. (Similar to Z-Finder by Zacuto, but cheaper). It came with two mounts which work great for my [...]

04Feb DIY Camera Slider


Tweet
Probably the best rail for a DIY slider, I believe this would be the same as a Glidetrack, is the Linear Guide rail from Igus. Normally used for Robotics, these precision machined aluminum rails use Dry bearings to slide. No greasy bearings. A.K.A. ZaZa slider, you can find more information here http://www.dvxuser.com/V6/showthread.php?t=145701
After reading a few [...]

31Jan 3 Videos about the Hybrid


Tweet
These videos are related to a Hybrid Steadicam (Merlin) Vest + Glidecam HD 4000 video camera stabilizer. I had to create a DIY adapter to ‘mate’ the two different systems together, but very happy so far with the results.
First video is what it sorta looks like (to date).

Second Video shows the DIY adapter up close [...]

28Nov Steadicam Merlin – Flying Camera Stabilizer


Tweet

Here’s some ‘Flying’ shots taken with a Tiffen Steadicam Merlin camera stabilizer. The difference with a Merlin type stabilizer is that the camera stays level the entire time. This is not a stabilizer in which you can change up/down angles with. The movement of flying straight and fluid is awesome though.
A Steadicam Merlin can be [...]
