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 [...]

30Sep LP-E6 Decoded Battery Prices


Tweet

The fact that the Canon 60D uses the same batteries as the 5D Mark II & Canon 7D was both a blessing and a curse. For those who already had these batteries, it’s nice not having a different set of batteries and charger to add to your gear list. A single OEM LP-E6 will run [...]

22Sep Canon 7D vs 60D vs 550D / T2i


Tweet

Now that Canon is throwing everyone for a loop releasing every ‘in between’ type of camera, I just thought i’d throw up a video about a few differences in the Canon 7D vs 60D vs T2i. I too was quite disappointed that Canon didn’t release any earth shattering news about new video features on their [...]

20Aug A DIY Canon DSLR Power Pack?


Tweet

I was cruising the web and ran into Jared Abrams from Cinema5D.com showcasing the Swintronix PowerBase 70 Power Pack for the Canon 5D Mark II & Canon 7D. This is a pretty cool solution for those who are concerned about battery power and want to make sure you’re running all day. Not a bad price [...]

So here’s my quick run through, i’m sure you all know how to assemble and balance these things. There’s already plenty of video tutorials on balancing, so i’m just going to show you sample [...]

26May Waterproof Housing 550D & 7D (and something Nikon)


Tweet

Wow, awesome stuff here by NauticamUSA.com. Yeah first time i’ve heard about them too! Maybe because I was never crazy enough to take my gear underwater. The rig looks pretty sick and they’ve got something for the Canon 7D as well. I believe there is a Nikon D90 in there too, but who cares. JK [...]

12May Wireless Shutter Remote + Wired Shutter Remote for Canon


Tweet

This remote cord + wireless remote combo was dirt cheap and I had to have it. I use these when i’m doing my Pole Photography (blogged about it earlier), so that I can trigger the camera while it’s about 12′ feet in the air. They work on multiple types of Canon Cameras. Check out the [...]

12May Canon 5D Mark II & 7D – Cheap China Batteries


Tweet

I thought this was old news and everyone was already using these. I purchased these batteries just weeks after the Canon 5D Mark II was announced! Yeah they are pretty old, but still rocking and rollin’. Apparently after posting my aftermarket battery video for the 550D & T2i, I received many questions on the 5DM2 [...]

26Mar Videos I Like – Los Angeles///Faster


Tweet

Video Details from Fabio Cunha:
A time-lapse experiment. 4020 shots used from more than 8000 shots. 1 shot for every 2 seconds interval. Canon 7D with Tamron 17-50mm 2.8. Cheap intervalometer and a crappy tripod.
I’m going to start doing this more often and share videos I like on my blog. Vimeo user Fabio Cunha created [...]

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 [...]

17Mar Falling in Love with the 5D Mark II (again)


Tweet

Let’s face it, many of us put the 5D Mark II on the back burner when the 7D and T2i came around. With poor audio quality, no frame rate options, and a high price tag, it wasn’t much for video. The only thing it had going for it was the Full Frame. With the new [...]

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 [...]
