While i’m not a Nikon shooter, the D800 is pretty close to a 5d mark III in the Canon world (give and take a few specs). Raw video features offered by Magic Lantern have kept 5d mark III prices higher than they otherwise would be, while the D800 has slowly drifted down to a much […]

09Dec Aputure V-Screen VS-3 7 inch IPS HDMI field Monitor features

I’ve been spending a little more time with the Aputure VS-3 monitor. One of the more interesting features is it’s audio level meter display. When enabled in the menu (under “volume bar”) it gives you a visualization of the incoming audio on the hdmi port. Unfortunately this doesn’t do you much good on the Canon 5d […]

28Nov Refurbished Nikon D800 $2348 with free shipping

I’ve never really been a Nikon shooter, but the Nikon D800 and Canon 5d mark III have always been neck and neck in the performance department. Well the option to shoot raw video with the ML hack caused a spike in 5dmk3 pricing, the D800 has continued to drift downward in price. Right now you […]

15Jan Nikon D800 Manufacturer refurbished body $2369 shipped

Even though I’m not a Nikon shooter, the Nikon D800 is still a pretty darn good camera, but what makes it even better is a price tag of $2369 shipped. I’ve only played around the D800 a few times and the body and build of Nikon’s layout isn’t for me, but if you want the […]

01Sep Battery testing.

For battery testing we have the Sanyo Eneloop XX 2500mAh (thanks Alek), the Eneloop 2000mAh, the Powerex 2700mAh, and just for the heck of it a cheap ($8) set of Energizer 2000mAh batteries from the local store.

29Aug Possible wireless version of DSLR controller via WiFi?

The CameraMator basically takes the concept of the DSLR Controller wireless by acting as a WiFi hot spot and transmitting the usb feed directly to your Ipad or android tablet. Right now they’re only demonstrating this as a wireless photo review solution with photography controls, but CameraMator team is working on live view video support as a […]

12Jun Paralinx Arrow Wireless HDMI transmitter

There are a few times when it would be really nice to have a wireless HD stream feeding back to a remote monitor. If your camera outputs a clean HDMI signal (Like the Nikon D800), it might also be handy to have wireless HD streamed to an HDMI field recorder. Previous HDMI wireless transmitter units (like the […]

12Apr Transcend Premium 400x 32GB compact flash cards.

Although I’ve been very happy with the performance of the PRETEC SDXC 64GB cards I’ve been using, the toughness of a CF card still wins compared to the thinner lighter weight SD cards. Plus the combination of a 32GB CF card and a 64GB SDXC card in the camera gives me close to 90GB of footage before […]
