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 [...]

I’m at dinner, so I won’t write much, but caught this cool article about how the Canon 5D Mark II was used in scenes or Iron Man 2. It just came out on DVD so time to hit the kiosk and watch it again!

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
