Transend 32G CF 400x card (Tried & Tested)

CF Card compatibility | Friday February 10 2012 1:28 am | Comments (1)

I have used Transcend media for over three years now starting with SxS adapter cards in my Sony EX-3 using 16G class 6 SDHC cards, I was some what surprised when I discovered that Canon uses CF cards. I don’t use over and under cranking so a card with 30MB/s write speed is more than [...]

Zacuto Z-Finder EVF Pro

External EVF | Monday February 6 2012 8:35 am | Comments (0)

I have no affiliation with Zacuto and joined the long queue of prospective owners and paid full dollar, so anything you see here is my own honest opinion. Do you need an external EVF for the Canon C300 up to a point no but if you were to film from a high vantage point like [...]

Data Video iPad Prompter on the Canon C300

iPad Prompter | Sunday February 5 2012 12:21 am | Comments (0)

Just to let you see the Canon C300 with an iPad Prompter the only problem is the height of the lens, its fine if you are at the 55mm end but due to being near the top of the glass it won’t allow wider shots…yet.

Carl Zeiss Planar T* F1.4 50mm ZE lens

Lenses | Saturday February 4 2012 11:24 am | Comments (0)

A very sharp 50mm lens with a fantastic f1.4 aperture, the crop factor (35mm=75mm) makes it perfect for interviews, this is my stock interview and low light lens. I discovered very early on in the world of shallow depth of field that f1.4 is fine for pac shots but if you do not give your [...]

How to format/initialize your CF card

Tutorials | Saturday February 4 2012 8:40 am | Comments (0)

I know this is basic but you will be amazed how many people buy a camera and especially if you come from a Sony, Panasonic or JVC, how confusing a new cameras menu system can be. When I was looking for this part of the menu I was looking for the words FORMAT as in [...]

If its a sharp wide angle you need they don’t come any wider than the Canon 8-15mm fisheye lens.
