22May Fotodiox PRO 7″ flapjack C-200RS – First impressions

After years of seeing others move towards LED lighting, I’m finally starting to catch up. When large LED panels first hit the market, I wasn’t really a fan of the light quality, but these days even very affordable LED lights provide very decent light. I just finished reviewing those extremally affordable $40 edge lit V-Pad 150 […]

27Apr Edelkrone Standplus

Edelkrone is one of those companies that is always attempting to reinvent established products, and the Standplus is no exception. Basically, they’ve taken the design of their FlexTilt head and applied the concept to a full-size tripod. The result is this accordion style studio stand on wheels. First of all, I don’t think the Standplus is intended […]

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 […]

25Feb Transcend 128GB SDXC card speed test

Right now the Transcend 128GB UHS-3 SDXC cards are down to $69. That makes them a pretty decent price for that capacity and claimed speed. The prominently displayed “ULTIMATE” logo on the package proclaims greatness and the “UHS-3” label is supposed to guarantee a minimum continuous speed of 30MB/s. While Sandisk has taught me to distrust […]

12Apr More Sony a7s low light testing, a Hero 4 in the works, and a 4k pocket recorder rumor

At NAB this week I wasn’t able to dismount the a7s from it’s stand or use a memory card in the camera so my low light testing was a little bit crude. This video just released by Sony really gives you a much better idea of how amazing this camera actually is in low light. […]

14Nov Removing the hard drive from a Seagate Plus external drive

For whatever reason external desktop USB drives are often cheaper than the equivalent sized OEM drive. They also seem to come with better warranties, in this case the drive has a 3 year warranty while most of the lower price OEM drives from Seagate only come with a 1 year warranty. The 3TB Seagate Backup […]

17Sep Canon EOS-M discontinued, Still no replacement?

  I’ve been seeing the Canon EOS-M price drops everywhere. With the development of Canon’s first new APS-C sensor in years (found in the Canon 70d), I thought we’d see an announcement of a new and improved EOS-M with a better auto focus system built around the new sensor. This morning I found several online […]

16Jul Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD ultrabook for editing?

Video from youtube member RazeTheWorld. I was pretty interested in the original Zenbook release at the beginning of the year, but many of you told me it would probably be a good idea to hold off on buying one until the next generation Zenbook was released. It appears the new Zenbook Prime has made some large steps […]
