Hands-on Review

Do you have the ability to control the zoom on your camera when you’re doing a jib shot? Do you need an on-camera battery for your Panasonic AF100 that will give you longer runs between battery changes? If you’re looking to accessorize a video camera with pro-level upgrades, the German manufacturer bebob is a brand worth checking out.

Flash exposures are interesting in that, with the exception of the lightning-like blasts of light produced by larger studio systems and the tinier “poofs” of light emitted from pop-up flashes, to the human eye all flash exposures are perceived as being equal in value even though they might differ by several stops.

With the introduction of the SLT-A77 and SLT-A65, Sony is making it perfectly clear they are proceeding full speed ahead with the fixed, translucent mirror technology cameras introduced last year. The top gun of the two new DSLRs is the Sony alpha SLT-A77, which in addition to a hefty, weather resistant, magnesium-alloy body, features an all-new 24.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor, making it the highest-resolution DSLR among APS-C format DSLRs.

Sony’s new alpha SLT-A65 looks remarkably similar to Sony’s first-generation fixed translucent mirror cameras, the SLT-A33 and SLT-A55, but in addition to a number of small and not-so-small improvements found on the new camera is the very same all-new 24.5MP APS-C CMOS sensor found in Sony’s flagship SLT-A77.

If you’ve ever checked out an impressive piece of gear and thought to yourself: “Wow, this thing is really neat, but imagine if they could shrink it down so it’s only a third of the size.” This is exactly what Que Audio has done with the shotgun microphone.

Off the cuff, one might think there are few, if any, differences between packing a DSLR system and an HDSLR system, but once you look beyond the basics, i.e. the camera bodies, lenses and tripod (the legs, but not necessarily the head), the differences start adding up.

Perfection: That’s the difference between amateur and professional productions. It’s true that amateurs can put together some amazing productions, even when they don’t have all that much equipment at their disposal.

What fits in the palm of your hand and is capable of creating a high-resolution 5.1 surround sound recording of the world around you? Nope, it’s not the Zoom H2—it’s the newly redesigned Zoom H2n Handy Recorder. This new model has some big shoes to fill for such a compact recorder, because its older brother was one of the most popular portable digital recorders of all time.

Buying Guide

Some accessories in video production and HDSLR filmmaking are so essential that they transcend being just add-on gear, and become part of the camera system itself. One such item is an on-camera monitor. Sometimes referred to as a “video-assist monitor,” they’re used to help the camera operator (or assistant) focus the camera.

Shooting video with DSLRs, or HDSLRs to be specific, is gaining popularity with photographers and filmmakers. One reason is that HDSLRs can shoot some pretty amazing video. Many photographers buy an HDSLR to shoot stills and then fall in love with the camera’s video capabilities once they discover them.

Road-testing a new DSLR is always a blast, especially when the improvements go beyond a new paint Canon's EOS 5D Mark IIjob and racing stripes. Canon's new EOS 5D Mark II, a 2nd generation 5D-series digicam, delivers a host of improvements along with the ability to shoot Hi-Def video with sound, which made the road-test experience a total blast-and-a-half.

Having logged many hours with the original EOS 5D, I was especially eager to shoot with its replacement. What surprised me most was the extent to which I became enamored with the newbie's video feature, but more on that later.

Before a swarm of guests descends on the reception hall and disrupts the carefully arranged environment, be sure you’ve captured it in its exquisite perfection.  Most halls are tastefully appointed and designed with visual impact in mind. With the exception of the occasional fluorescent-lit VFW hall, the reception venue is best shot in available light.

In the world of filmmakers and videographers, there is a prolonged myth that bigger is better. The truth is, it all depends on the specific assignment. However, in capturing candid and real-life events, a clunky shoulder-mounted camera often inhibits the ability for even the best camera operator to obtain unobstructed realism. Packed with all the settings and controls an experienced shooter would require, the JVC GY-HM100U is a deceptively small camcorder that provides the operator with a professional level of image control, as well as the freedom of invisibility. This makes it perfectly suited to many videographers and documentarians.
