hmmmm. thanks JPo You're right. I suspected as much. I guess the DSLR I have is kind of worthless. While I'm getting better at proper exposure, no one is so good as not needing to color correct. It lo

Hoodman was a joke for me. I ended up buying it, then buying a Zacuto, which is 1000x better. I don't use it that often, as the built in is pretty good, but yes, in bright sunlight the Zacuto is quite

by brian klassen 8 years ago
I'm looking to buy a video head for my Manfrotto 3021 tripod (old school, heavy, but it has served me well and does everything I need it to do). I've been considering the Manfrotto 504HD. I'm using a

I have a manfrotto 516 video head. It's pricey, but do you want to put your expensive camera & rigging on the cheapest tripod you can get It's got plenty of capacity for rails, mattebox, viewfinder, e

I recently purchased a Sandisk Extreme Pro (90 mb s). Probably overkill for me, but I got a great price on it. And I want to be able to shoot (RAW)time lapse at a 2 or 3 second frame rate, so wanted t
