Sony ZV-1 Camera Back in Stock

Officially announced just a few weeks ago and immediately tough to get a hold of, the new Sony ZV-1 camera is back in stock. The appeal of this compact camera is having a fully articulating LCD screen, built in ND Filter, fast autofocus, and image stabilization. Available now via B&H (here).

Want a simple way to put up a background? These new PortaScreen Retracting Portable backdrops make it easy to travel and setup a solid backdrop for talking head interviews or products shots.

Battery Inside of a Tripod Plate – Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera

One of the major downfalls to any of the BlackMagic Design Pocket Cinema cameras is battery life. For the newest 4K and 6K models, you could choose to add the Blackmagic Design battery grip, but the addition will not allow you to use most Cages. We've also recently seen batteries built into Rig Handles just to keep cameras and accessories powered. But...

Battery Mag – Simple Camera Battery Organizers

After working on a few projects, we come up with our own solutions that help us to be more efficient. For organizing batteries, I know many (including me) use bags to store and separate charged up vs non-charged batteries. It works, nothing complicated, and inexpensive. But if you're looking into being a little more organized while helping out a fellow...

Sony ZV-1 Digital Camera The most obvious design addition...

Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE Lens for Sony E

Here's an interesting auto focus lens for Sony that covers a full frame sensor. The new Samyang AF 75mm f/1.8 FE is a unique short-telephoto lens well-suited for portraiture, with a distinct focal length, compact design, and bright f/1.8 maximum aperture. Both the price and focal length sit somewhere between Sony's own 50mm 1.8 and 85mm f/1.8 lenses....

Quick Swing Away ND Filter Holders For Cameras without Build In ND System

As much as i love shooting with the smaller mirrorless cameras (Sony A7R3 + GH5s) as they are much easier to pack up and handle all day, I really despise the lack of having built in ND Filters. Having to thread filters on and off slows down the process of filming. So what I ended up doing was permanently adding these Swing Away Filter Holders to...

4K HDMI Video Capture USB Adapter Turns any Camera to Webcam

Here's a video I shared a few years ago, but has become even more relevant under today's pandemic circumstances. More and more people are working remote and having to deal with live video conferencing / meetings. Instead of a poor quality webcam, with this adapter you can capture the HDMI video feed (up to 4K resolution) and turn any professional camera...

Headphones for Video Editing

What headphones am I currently using for video editing? I've been asked this question a few times lately, and as i'm not exactly sure how I ended up purchasing the OneOdio Over Ear Headphones last year - i've been happy I did. I purchased one set last year for editing in my office, and just recently purchased another set when editing at home (no endorsements...
