26Feb Canon 80d, the Camera you wanted 3 years ago.

It’s been over 6 years since the Canon t2i was released.

13Feb Wasabi Canon BP-970G 8500 mAh c100/c300 battery

As I continue to uses the Canon c100 (which still has yet to impress me), I wanted to get a few more batteries for longer shoots. The Canon BP-955 batteries that come with the camera aren’t bad, providing about 3 hours of shooting time, but they will set you back around $150 a peace. After doing a […]

16Dec Canon C100 – first impressions

I’ve been doing a bit of shooting with the Canon c100 lately. Many people rant and rave about how much of a step up it is from a 5d mark III or any DSLR body for that matter. While I’ve enjoyed shooting with it, i’m not exactly in love. Currently the most disappointing thing about […]
