First Look: LCW Helmsman USB Follow Focus For Canon DSLR Cameras.


Here is a BTS Quick Take on the new Helmsman USB Follow Focus from Light Craft Workshop. It worked with our Tokina 28-80mm f2.8 Zoom and should work with most Canon EF mount AF lenses. It is not the smoothest operator on the block but I suspect that it will react differently for each lens depending on the lenses AF capability, focus throw, etc. It has a remote start/stop button and lets you use...Read More

First Look At The JAG35 Camera Slider.


  Here are a few stills of the brand new slider from JAG35. The system is based around a ball bearing camera plate that rides on two 15mm rails. It is very smooth and looks to be a great addition to the smaller camera slider options in the sub-$500 catageory. The unit I have is a prototype and we may see more improvements when it finally makes it to the street. I will have...Read More

Cineroid, SmallHD and Zacuto EVF Review Promo Thing.


  Here is a Quick Take BTS of our EVF Review. I threw this up to show them all side by side. My first thoughts are this: The SmallHD DP4 is an on-camera monitor at heart and an EVF second. The Zacuto has it’s roots as an EVF first and a small on-camera monitor second. The Cineroid is just an EVF. We have all of the HDMI EVF’s currently on the market and will...Read More

Quick Take: SmallHD DP4 EVF.
