Did I just put together a cage to make ENG lenses a lot easier to use on DSLRs? Yes, I did.
Then I made a comprehensive demo video showing how it all comes together, the advantages of the pieces I selected, and how it integrates into other aspects of DSLR camera operation.
So if you have a wireless mic- or any other 1 RU device that needs both front and back access, as well as pouches front and back to hole related items, then this case is the protection solution for you. (continue reading…)
I had two cases, now I have ONE that used to carry gear, but that gear has been sold off.
It also looks like I’ll not be acquiring similar gear so this case, in excellent condition, with high quality foam (not crappy pick & pull foam) is available for you to buy and configure to your needs. (continue reading…)
The venerable FX1 is a true prosumer HDV camcorder.
The pro model adds XLR inputs, but lens, chips, and images captured are identical.
HDV tape still is the cost leader for recording HD images. Shoot and go, or hand it off to the client.
True 3-CCD chips – no rolling shutter, no flash banding, no jello-cam, no image distortion.
This handy little item is a combination waveform, vectorscope, and audio scope all in one. The little 4″ LCD shows you everything you need, and you can loop the output of this device to the screen of your choice (composite in and out).
So if you have a composite NTSC feed of your video, this portable device can measure it and give you calibrated IRE readings, vectors for calibrating bars or color charts and more. All this off any 12v supply. AC adapter and protective case are included. (continue reading…)

This is a great live/recorded sound mixer.
Sliders (not knobs) easily relay channel loudness.
Aux 3/4 bus makes this a 4-channel mixer.
Four aux buses (pre/post fader) make it even more versatile.
Got a big shoot with lots of people to track, then you need something better than a little receiver velcroed to the side of the camcorder. You need professional audio, amplified, directional, diversity antennas. You need easy and quick selection between hundreds of MHz to avoid TV stations, handheld radios, and more RF interference. This is where robust wireless audio systems like the Sony WRR-840 and WRR-820 really shine. Multiple outputs to feed multiple cameras, mixers, viewers, recorders. Easily adjustable everything.

Do you need a lighting grid in a home where there is no grid? Need a vertical post between floor and ceiling to hide a light where you can’t see a stand?
Then you need the Bogen / Manfrotto AutoPole.
For the quick dub of full size and MiniDV tapes to VHS/SVHS, this deck was the shizzle in 2000. Now used less and less, it still serves as a great feeder deck for the SD projects that come in to the office. Moreover it plays back full size and Mini DVCAM tapes, as well as DV. It can dub between the two decks as well for those looking to easily migrate SVHS onto a digital tape format. (continue reading…)
