09Dec Tilta BMPCC BlackMagic Pocket Cinema Camera Cage


Tweet
When it comes to the #BMPCC, there’s a few accessories you may want to add-on, and so a solid cage is a good starting point to carry these extras. Adding on a pair of 15mm rails will get you even further when it comes to mounting video accessories. I’ve shared a few BMPCC cages on [...]

25Feb BlackMagic Design Cinema Camera in Kamerar Tank Video Cage


Tweet

I often get questions about whether the Kamerar Tank Cage will work on the new BlackMagic Design Cinema camera. It was originally designed to fit Canon DSLR cameras, but by accident, it can also fit the BMCC. By changing the stock rods on the Kamerar Tank Cage with standard 15mm rails, i’m able to fit [...]

The LanParte 15mm Swing Away Rod Clamp features a hinged design that can swing a Matte Box or other 15mm accessory away from the [...]

24Feb Speed Crank on Gini iFocus Follow Focus


Tweet

The cheap Speed Crank came in the other day. It’s a perfect fit on the Gini iFocus Follow Focus which is pretty standard 12×12, so it would work well on other FFs too. It does have a retro ‘1980’s PacMan Arcade Joystick Red’ color, but can easily be coated. The Red knob actually screws off [...]

14Aug Gini Follow Focus – Almost Complete


Tweet
Well Gini is definitely all ears and listening to feedback. Here’s a look at a more complete Gini Follow Focus. All things black anodized, magnetic marking disc holders.

26Jul First look Fotga Follow Focus


Tweet

A quick look around the budget Fotga Follow Focus. This was another one shared on this blog just a few weeks back which has a ‘riser’ design to make sure it can always hit the lens gear. Sometimes using smaller diameter lenses or tall Battery grips will render some FF’s useless. This is not a [...]

20Jun Budget Follow Focus Review


Tweet
A few hands have received the Budget Follow focus and it looks awesome! You can find one review here: http://cheesycam.com/budget-follow-focus-reviewed-again/

DSLR Follow Focus with Lens Gear
Remember that you’ll still require a set of 15mm rods to mount, so take advantage of those Gini auctions. I’m guessing with the popularity of this new FF, even those [...]

The initial price is still a couple of hundred dollars, but it actually makes it one of the more affordable [...]

08May Wondlan’s 2011 DSLR Products


Tweet

Wondlan DSLR Sniper Plus Support Full Shoulder Rig
Wondlan’s earliest DSLR products were pretty blah, but when they started pushing out their ’sniper’ or ‘target shooter’ type rigs, they started making a bit of noise in the scene. My guess is they are doing pretty well since they are now expanding their lineup of previously [...]
