Mitch Aunger Talks about HDSLR Trends

Mitch Aunger runs the extremely-popular Planet 5D community. Founded around the advent of HDSLRs, the site has evolved over the years to not only being a host to reviews and news, but also aggregating lots of the cultural changes within the HDSLR community, and interviewing top professionals.

We recently had the chance to squeeze some time in with Mitch to ask him a couple of questions about HDSLR culture, and lots more.

Meet B&H: The Consumer Video Dept

Every great filmmaker needs to start somewhere. Some people aspire to be the next big thing on YouTube, others want to be an Indie Cult Lord, while others dream of having their names likened to that of Speilberg. If you've got the vision, we've got the tools. Our Consumer Video Dept houses almost any consumer-level camcorder you could name and more. Everything we have is on display for you to try for yourself. If you have questions, our experts will help to educate you about some essential accessories such as converter lenses, batteries, filters, memory, and even video tapes!

Who Knew? Is Your Camera a Dummy?

Have you ever looked into a surveillance camera and wondered who was watching you? Well, even if you haven't, you should know that the camera mounted to the ceiling may well be a dummy. In fact, we carry loads of dummy surveillance cameras designed to deter would-be intruders by giving the feeling that they are being watched. This is a great item for mom-and-pop stores on a budget, families with concerns about trespassers, schools with concerns about delinquent behavior, and more.

Who Knew is an ongoing weekly series featuring some of the items that you wouldn't typically find in your average camera store. But then again, we're not your typical camera store. 

Meet B&H: Pro Video Counter

For those of you that have never visited the B&H SuperStore, you're in luck. Each week we'll feature photos of a different department or section in order for you to get to know us a bit better. This week, we are showing off the Pro Video Counter located on the first floor. The Pro Video counter features a slew of camcorders on display for you to test out. This, combined with the friendly aid of our experts, helps you make the right choice.

Marshall Field Monitor Loves the Outdoors

Monitoring in the field is a lot different than sitting back in your favorite easy chair in a dimly lit room, watching a good movie. For one, you must power everything by battery in the field and two, sunlight often drowns out your screen. Field monitors have to be built more ruggedly than the gear you leave at home.
