GH5 DMW-XLR1 Audio Adapter CAME-TV Cage Azden Microphone

In this video we take a look at the Panasonic DMW-XLR1 audio adapter for the Panasonic GH5, and how this adapter opens up more ways to capture better audio directly into the GH5 camera body. We also show a few CAME-TV Cages that were specifically designed to work with the DMW-XLR1 attached, as well as a sneak peek at Azden's new SGM-250CX short shotgun microphone. The adapter is extremely lightweight, and sets you up to record one or two microphones while controlling levels independently. You can now work with high end microphones which typically are designed to work over

Crop Sensors vs Full Frame :: Crop Or Crap? A very funny Zach Arias video

I admit I'm a full frame snob… but this video from Zach Arias is hilarious. And I totally understand his point – and I keep saying it over and over, it isn't about the gear, it is about the skills you have as a photographer or filmmaker! That being said, I love my full frame Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and I had a lot more success with my images after I switched from a crop sensor to a full frame… But buy the best camera you can afford and spend more money on lenses than bodies. And shoot as much as

Canon Switcher: “I Hate The Canon 6D Mark II – Goodbye, Canon”

Following up on the article I did last week on the decline of DSLR and Mirrorless sales, I wanted to get your thoughts on new cameras like the Canon EOS 6D Mark II. I've found plenty of videos like below… people complaining about the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and how Canon isn't listening to users… so they're switching. I guess it is much like the PC vs Mac discussions isn't it? The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence. Many of us are addicted to new gear. We love new technology and we now seem

DSLR Sales Down – Nobody Is Buying Stand Alone Cameras Any More!

dslr sales downDSLR sales were down in 2016 – but before you put on your “see mirrorless is taking over the world” hat, mirrorless sales were down too (tho they were less down than DSLR sales)! Yesterday, I was thinking about the new Light L16 I've been telling you about (and have a new site covering this incredible new technology called lightRumors) and they're about to start shipping the first production cameras this Friday, and I've been thinking a lot about the future of cameras. And so when I found this video by Mark over at The Photo/Video Show, it really hit home. People

Tentacle Sync TimeCode Generators Align Multiple Audio or Video Fast

Timecode is a simple way to sync Multiple Cameras and or Audio Recorders quickly with frame accuracy. Cheaper consumer cameras may have an option to reset timecode within, but after a short period clocks begin to drift apart between your different cameras. This is because they don't have accurate internal clocks. And though they may have an option to send timecode out (over HDMI), they don't have a way of getting timecode in from an external accurate Timecode Generator. Tentacle Sync Timecode Generators solves this problem by working as an external clock and embedding timecode into one channel of audio.

Two Camera Updates from Canon – The Canon EOS 6D Mark II and the Canon Rebel SL2

Canon just announced 2 updates that many people will want to pick up – the Canon EOS 6D Mark II and the Canon Rebel SL2 (more on that in another post) The Canon EOS 6D Mark II is a very nice upgrade from the prior model and is the FIRST Canon Full Frame DSLR with an articulating screen! That's huge news. I think the only other full frame camera on the market with a ‘flippy' screen is the Sony A99 II (note the Pentax K-1 and the Nikon D750 have articulating screens, but they only move a little – they don't

BluSky Films Reacts to Using Came-TV Prophet Gimbal and Orbit 2 Ring Handle

I've been working with a prototype CAME-TV Prophet gimbal since they announced it at the NABShow 2017. I certainly like the design, but I also wanted to share an opinion on someone who uses gimbals as an important part of their business. BluSky Films specializes in high profile Real Estate videos in the Bay Area and surrounding cities within California. A large percentage of their footage is shot using gimbals and drones. So I followed along while Justin from BluSkyFilms reacts to using the prototype Came-TV Prophet Gimbal with new Orbit 2 Ring Handle for the first time. And just

SlingStudio Multi Camera Live Production Streaming with iPod Touch

When it comes to Multiple Camera Angles and Live Streaming, I'm constantly impressed with the simplicity and ease of use with SlingStudio. Instead of an ATEM hardware switcher, you're managing everything from a simple iPad - wirelessly. Instead of running cables back to your switcher, your cameras are wireless and free to roam. Even though you can use professional cameras with a CameraLink adapter, you always have the option of simplifying your setup using the SlingStudio Capture app on iOS or Android Smartphones. For those smaller productions or on location, I decided to invest in (4) 16GB 6th Gen

Testing the Tiny DJI Spark Drone


Just testing out the new super tiny DJI Spark Drone. It only shoots up to 1080HD, but the quality is surprising for such a little drone. Distance is not as good as the Mavic Pro, but it really handles well indoors and dim lighting. Even though you can fly it by hand gesture or through your Mobile phone, the Remote control is a must have. It offers longer distance and easier control. Batteries don't last very long because it's so small, so in my opinion it's worth investing in the Combo Kit. Definitely a good way to practice your Drone
