Turn your iPad into a DSLR with the Padcaster.

Cameras

I picked this up from ICG magazine of all places. The Padcaster is a housing for the iPad that will let you add tons of accessories. The Lenscaster let’s you add lenses. I could not find out too much info on the lens mount but it looks like manual focus and iris only. The Padcaster sells for $149 and the Lenscaster Padcaster combo is $189. Here is a rip from their website. Click here...Read More

Panasonic GH3 Camera Specifications Rumored.

Cameras

  43Rumors has announced the possible specifications for the new Panasonic GH3. If these are correct we may just have a really capable little camera.

Here is a rip from 43Rumors.   **Rumored Specifications. These could easily change when the...Read More

Canon announced the new EOS C100 camera. The new baby C300 has many of the same feature set and form factor in a teeny tiny little body. Weighing in at a mere two pounds it is only slightly heavier than a Canon 5D MKIII. Unfortunatly the specs don’t look very competitive.The C100 lacks 60P and is limited to a 4:2:0 color space. The new C100 will set you back around $7K or more. (rumored...Read More

High-Speed

@MNS1974

I am going to preamble my post by saying right off the bat that I am a high-speed snob and am biased since one of the companies I am affiliated with is the US distributor for the TS3Cine.

Some are targeted at...Read More
