14May Cursed with the Midas Touch


Tweet

Yeah everything that guy Midas touched turned to gold. Sounds great, but didn’t work out too well. Lately everything the Cheesycam blog talks about inflates like prices of Gold. I just got a comment regarding the aftermarket 550D / T2i batteries from an eBay seller. I won’t mention any names, but i’ll embed a JPEG!

10May Testing the Cricut Cake Cutter


Tweet

So if it weren’t for the gear, this post wouldn’t make much sense on this web blog. This is the first day using the Cricut Cake cutter. Wifey received it a while back, but never had the chance to break it out. The Cricut Cake Cutter is a cool little machine that can cut Fondant [...]

26Apr 550D / T2i Video – Canyon Creek


Tweet

This video is great for several reasons. First, it’s coming from someone who’s fairly new to shooting video on DSLR’s. Secondly, it’s coming from a 550D / T2i and the footage is amazing. Third, it’s using all Nikon lenses with a Canon adapter, which goes to show, even with other lenses you can capture great [...]

25Mar BodyPod Monopod Stabilizer for 550D Canon T2i – Light Cameras


Tweet

Before this video will make any sense, you should know about my DIY BodyPod project found at http://cheesycam.com/?p=93
A BodyPod is not a tripod. It’s basically a cut up monopod that supports the camera by use of a strap attached to the body.
These stick things are used to take a picture of yourself by mounting a [...]

24Mar Everything’s cheaper with T2i 550D

These Canon 550D T2i Batteries LP-E8 are sooo cheap.
One of the decisions you’ll need to make about buying your video DSLR is all the accessories you’re going to need to help you shoot your projects. Compared to the $80 dollar OEM batteries for the 7D, the Canon T2i 550D batteries are chump change. I’ve already [...]

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 [...]

His video (Above) shows some fine examples of how a monopod, when used correctly, can support your camera weight and give you some super steady footage.

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 [...]

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 [...]

So Canon has announced the Rebel T2i and it’s causing quite a stir. Especially for those that invested in the Canon 7D recently strictly as a Video camera. Rumors are the T2i is supposed to resemble the Canon 7D video features including framerates, resolution, and ISO settings. Some are labeling it the ‘Mini 7D’.
