Mail call! I have a new piece of kit that I’ve been wanting for a while and this particular brand checked most of the boxes for me. The Edelkrone SliderOne Pro. A quick summary of my wants: I was looking for something to add some production value to interviews, b-roll, and any other motivated slider […]
I’ve been eyeing one of the small 3-axis gimbals that are on the market. I currently have a GoPro, so options like the Feiyu G3 received a small portion of my research foray. I also looked at the DJI Osmo—and ultimately purchased one. The shot that inspired me to get such a device was this: […]
By Kevin Keegan So some interesting news this week arrived via a post by none other than the hip-hop artist, Kanye West. Never short of headlines, his latest blip on social media is especially ironic considering the industry from which he claims his fame is also the one he appears to be cheating. Day 3 pic.twitter.com/zPw0eFEFGF — KANYE […]
I preordered the Canon SL1 towards the end of March. The original release date on BestBuy’s site was April 28. It was bumped back to May 3 a few weeks ago and the that day has finally arrived.

We had a visitor today. Canon! Robert, my boss, just happens to be friends with Mark Karwisch, the Southeastern Broadcast Account Manager at Canon U.S.A. He made the trip down to our office and brought with him a few toys for us to look over. Let’s see here… the XA10, XF105, XF305, 5D Mark III, […]
I’m now on the wave… Overall, i’m baffled at the amount of hype that Google’s Wave has received. Enormous amounts of press spoke of the revolution of email. This eventually led to mixed reviews from the tech blogs, though. Bottom line, this is a step in the right direction. It has a lot of kinks […]
Well, my family and I have just ordered the family pack of OSX Snow Leopard. I’m very excited about the slight speed bump and extra HD space but will of course be holding off on any production machines at home or at work. Too many pieces of software are still unproven with it and it’s […]
