25Mar Minolta 85mm f1.4 Sony a7s II lens review

If you are looking to save a little bit of money on glass for your Sony a7s or a7s II body, you always have the option of buying older A-mount or Minolta glass. After all, Sony’s A-mount was purchased from Minolta years ago, which means all you really need is the proper adapter. In this […]

04Feb Panasonic 7-14mm f4 wide angle lens

One of the things I really missed when I first picked up the Panasonic GH4 was a wide angle lens. Until I went without it while shooting with the GH4, I hadn’t really thought about how much I actually use that focal length. In my Canon collection I currently have the 16-35mm f2.8 and the much older […]

24Apr How much does a GPU really affect your Adobe Premiere workflow?

I’ve been talking about GPU upgrades so I thought I’d post some rendering tests I did awhile back on the GTX 670 and the GTX 285 with CS6. Adobe CS6 is a bit long in the tooth now that CC is out, but I still know a lot of people who use it. The specs on […]

07Mar PNY 128GB USB 3.0 thumb drive quick review

I was looking for a fast USB 3.0 thumb drive with a lot of storage space for travel. Having a high capacity thumbdrive can be pretty handy when you are collaborating on projects and you never know when you’re going to need to share or grab media files. After doing some research I settled on […]

05Mar Aputure VS-3 V-Screen Field monitor review

I’ve been testing and using the Aputure VS-3 Field monitor for a few months now and it’s been a reasonably positive experience. The VS-3 sits in a sweet spot between higher end monitors and the sub $200 offerings. Features are pretty good for the price and it’s one of the few monitors that offers up […]

20Nov Tehkron Gopro hero 3 Cage Pro – A Blunt Review

The Tehkron Cage pro showed up this morning. I forgot I had preordered this thing after seeing it on twitter a few months ago. For those of you not familiar with the Tehkron Cage pro, it’s basically a hero 3 cage that allows you to power and charge your hero 3 with standard Canon LP-E6 […]

03Sep Tamrac Rally 6 3446 camera bag Review

I’ve been on the pre-order list for the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema camera since the day I got my hands on it at NAB. But after multiple delays and a sketchy list of features, I canceled my order, got my $1000 refund, and picked up a Canon 6d. I’ve had a love hate relationship with the […]

22Apr Tascam DR-60D review Video

I could spend some time writing a long description of the Tascam DR-60D, but I think I’ve covered it pretty well in this review. So I’ll just break it down into pros and cons. Pro: Lower price than Beachtek or Juicedlink with more features 4 tracks of audio recording Large knobs with an easy to […]

26Mar NastyClamp vs Actionpod which one is right for your kit?

I’ve been playing around with the NastyClamp as well as the Actionpod for a few weeks now trying to decide which one is a better fit. Both use the same 3/4 inch Loc-line tube so they both have pretty much the same load capacity. The major difference is in the squeeze clamp and mounting stud. […]

25Jan Catleap 27 inch 2560×1440 IPS display – Road Test

I posted about Catleap IPS 2560×1440 display a few months back and I haven’t really posted much about it since. I don’t do a lot of monitor testing, so for me the best sign that a monitor is doing a good job can be summed up in the lack of complaints. After 5 months of […]
