11Jul Canon T4i / 650D with Battery Grip BG-E8


Tweet

For every other Canon DSLR camera like the 7D, 5D Mark II, 60D, and 5D Mark III you’ll need a totally different grip. One good thing about the Rebel series cameras is that they continue to share the same LP-E8 battery type along with the same BG-E8 Battery Grip. A cheap BG-E8 grip for the [...]

LoupeTalk DIY Adapter for Hoodman Loupe from emmagination on Vimeo.
A couple of people have commented about how their LCD Viewfinders can lose adhesion from the metal frame to the LCD glass. Just wanted to remind everyone about an old video I posted a while back that might be a good solution by permanently (epoxy) attaching [...]
