OK, I will admit it, I am a complete newbie when it comes to calibrating a monitor. I know I SHOULD be doing it, but I am sometimes a bit tech shy. I sometimes get a little frustrated that my printed images don’t always look exactly like my screen images. But I pay and trust […]

I’ve had the chance to play with the new Lume Cube Panel Mini for about two weeks (full specs here). An early release version was sent to me for review. This light is virtually perfect and very affordable. As a user of the other Lume Cube lights, I was curious about what would change from […]

NANLITE PavoTube II 6C Review – Affordable RGBWW Light in a Small Package


This post is by Graham Sheldon from News – cinema5D

The NANLITE PavoTube II 6C is absolutely packed with features in a very tiny .6 lbs package. Everything from built-in effects like Fire, Disco, and “Bad TV” to 360 different colors, internal battery, and full control over hue and dimming as low as 1%. Oh, and it’s $99. On paper, you’d compare the PavoTube II 6C to products like Aputure’s $90 MC and maybe even the much pricier Helios tube from Astera. Does it hold up and do the impressive banner features live up to the hype? Let’s find out:

We recently released some footage of Laowas 9mm f5.6 Dreamer. This Full-frame rectilinear lens blew us away, but we needed to get more footage to really understand the lens. It seems like a silly concept to describe how wide 9mm is. However, the first time you open the camera you realize, WOW!… that’s wide. Most […]

Variable neutral density filters have become invaluable tools for many photographers and filmmakers.

In recent years, their prices have fallen quite dramatically, too, while their overall […]

Eight weeks ago, six feet was just six feet. Now, those 72 inches is the minimum distance to stand away from someone. Working during a Pandemic is not easy when you tell the extraordinary stories of our times. When the wave of Coronavirus started to wash over the United States of America, K-Tek sent me a brand new boom pole explicitly built for users like me to help keep my distance from interview subjects. It was the right gear at the right time. Thanks, K-Tek!

I’ll admit it — I don’t use micro four-thirds cameras as much as I used to. Mainly because other manufacturers are offering larger sensor cameras and more video capabilities at similar prices.
