Hi this is Jay P Morgan. Today on The Slanted Lens we’re going to review the new MIOPS Smart Trigger. We used this trigger for our high-speed photography lesson, “How To Shoot a Light Bulb”. http://bit.ly/1MGGc9X The MIOPS Smart has 11 different modes. Six of those are native; you use them from your camera. […]
Trends from the Trenches for the month of September. We talk about video and still photography. There are some very important announcements.
In our News and Reviews we compare the Canon 5DS R to the new Sony a7RII and look at how they compare for shooting stills (40 mega pixel vs 50 mega pixel). We have a sneak peak at the Dynalite Baja B6, a 600 watt second lithium battery,50% more powerful and battery portable. We look at Ninja Assassin from Atomos,a great HD recorder that is light and affordable.
Atomos has introduced a new 4K Recorder that will open the door wide for 4K. The Shogun is a great recording device but expensive. The new Ninja Assassin by Atomos has stripped away the things that you can do without, like SDI recording, and left you with a great 7 inch monitor that will record 4K to the A7s and the Panasonic GH4. I have heard it’s under 1500 dollars.
Syrp is just about to release the Genie Mini as an addition to it’s family of motion control devices but I got my hands on one early to test it out and share with all of you. I have had the opportunity to use the Mini by itself and with the full-size Genie for a dozen or more time lapse photography shoots in the past few weeks and I was really impressed with the outcome.
Today on the Slanted Lens, we’re going to review the new tripod by Vanguard. It’s a 265CB VEO tripod. It’s a travel tripod and it’s a really great product. So let’s take a look at some of the features. The height is 15.38 inches when it’s folded up. That makes this a really easy tripod […]
Today on the Slanted Lens I’m going to be reviewing the Brixton Bag by ONA. I saw this bag when we were over at Samy’s. They make a great line of bags and backpacks. They sent me this one and I was very interested to see what it was like. This bag is a very […]
Today on the Slanted Lens I’m going to be reviewing the Roamographer Bison Bag. This product got me really excited when I saw it a WPPI. It’s from a company called Hold Fast and they make this series of leather bags with genuine Buffalo hide.
Today on The Slanted Lens, I am reviewing the Lexar Workflow HR2. This multi-slot card reader is the solution to a problem I have been struggling with for many years — spending too much time on dumping memory cards after a shoot.
The SpiderPro Hand Strap is now available for purchase. Visit www.SpiderHolster.com/handstrap Today on the Slanted Lens, I am reviewing the new SpiderPro Hand Strap. There are some pretty amazing features on this strap that work very well for me. One is the fact that it is cut so far back. I have had several hand […]
I am talking about Vanguard’s Sedona 45 backpack. This bag would be great for taking your camera equipment with you on a day hike.
