My first prototype side handle for the #MicroCinema Camera. I am able to change settings like white balance, shutter angle, ISO, and even Start/Stop video recording. All without diving into the cumbersome menu and trying to navigate. Each button can remapped in the software. I'm obsessed with this camera at the moment. So many cool mods to share in the coming weeks. If you are interested in this camera, check out @dvestore DVEStore.com.
Mike over at https://FortyTwobmx.blogspot.com wasn't looking to pay the high prices for a handle mount rig for the Canon 550D to shoot BMX and Skate films, so he whipped up his own DIY called the '550D Extreme Sports Handle'. With some extra square tubing, old BMX handlebar, a couple of Grips, old bar ends, and a quick release adapter from a cheap tripod here's the end result. Another goal was to make the handle rig as small as possible. Some future upgrades will be a start / stop record button on the top handle, small monitor, and possible LED lighting. You can find more about his project over at his blog here.
