23Apr New Lilliput Q7 1920×1080 IPS field monitor hands on

Lilliput is a company I haven’t really thought about in the last few years. They were one of the first to make an affordable 7 inch field monitor with a whopping 1024×600 resolution for under $200. Since then most of their monitors have been derivatives of the same concept. However at NAB this week, Devin and […]

22Apr Saramonic UWMIC10 Bodypack Transmitter TX10 for $129

Remember that Saramonic dual channel receiver lav kit I reviewed a few months back? First of all, Saramonic has fixed the channel mixing issue. You can now isolate the two transmitters by sending the signal to the left and right channel of your camera’s input. Which means for $399 you can buy a very decent dual channel […]

15Mar Robocam Review, multi-cam control of Panasonic cameras

Want to control multiple Panasonic GH4 cameras from a laptop via wifi? If the answer is yes, then you might be interested in checking out Robocam. Basically, this $40 program allows you to scan a wifi network for Panasonic cameras, then remote control them the same way you would when using Panasonic’s image app on […]

25Sep Azden SGM-250s Boom mic Review

After using the Azden 250s for the past few weeks, I would say it is on par with the performance of the Rode NTG-2 in terms of audio quality. With a few added features like being able to turn the battery power off (saves battery power without removing it), the 250s really offers up a […]

02Jun Saramonic SR-AX107 Review

I’ve been using the Saramonic SR-AX107 for the last two months off and on for various things. As far as XLR audio adapters go, it sounds good. In fact you’d be hard pressed to find a major difference in audio quality between the SR-AX107 and something like the Beachtek DXA-SLR XLR audio adapter. While the Saramonic […]

06Mar Smallrig EVF arm slips under pressure, here’s a quick fix

I’ve been testing out the Smallrig 1422 EVF Nato mount arm a little more this week and I ran into a bit of a problem. The setup above (MustHD 5.6 inch panel on the Smallrig EVF mount) seems to be a dangerous combination. I’ll admit that the MustHD is one of the heaviest monitors in this form factor with […]

05Mar Aputure VS-3 IPS monitor Firmware update

If you are an Aputure VS-3 monitor owner, there’s a new firmware update out. Version 1.3 corrects the menu system when using the monitor flip mode. If you are running a firmware version prior to 1.1 it will also correct the focus peaking issue that basically made the menu unreadable while enabled. I’ve been using the Aputure […]

22May DSLR Smartphone Hot Shoe Mount – First impressions

I know a number of you are using the DSLR Controller app and the TP-Link wireless hack I posted awhile back to control and monitor your camera. The problem is that there aren’t a lot of cheap simple ways to mount the TP-link or your phone (unless you count velcro). I try to keep an eye out for […]

24Apr Samsung 28-Inch 4k Monitor $629 on ebay

If you missed out on the $599 easter pricing on the Samsung 3840×2160 4k monitor I posted earlier this week, you can still pick this monitor up for far less than the $799 the price has shot up to on Amazon. Right now there are a hand full of these monitors on ebay for $629 with […]

22Apr Radeon R9 290x GPU prices fall, best value card for Adobe CC?

Adobe started officially supporting the Radeon R9 290 series graphics cards in december and the original list prices for these GPU’s looked pretty nice at $399 for the R9 290 and $549 for the R9 290x. In most tests the R9 290 and R9 290x performs with in about 5% of the GTX 780 at $499 and […]
