B4-Cage Demo – IEBA Communications – 215-632-3283 – Dallas Video Production

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.


REVIEW: Test results of the Nikon D800′s video- grading, sharpness, moire, and more.

by IEBA on Aug.03, 2012, under Published Articles

Enough already! take me to the article!There’s no question that video-capable DSLRs deliver a very different look from what you get with a prosumer camcorder, for about the same price. Plus you get killer stills, something no video camera—not even a 5K RED Epic—is going to match. This is especially the case when the camera is the 36 MP, full-frame, Nikon D800.

The D800 and Nikkor 24-120mm VR lens system I received from Nikon for review lists for $4,200. A decent prosumer camcorder, like the Panasonic AG-AC160, which I had an opportunity to test a few months ago, has a street price just north of $4,000. So they are definitely comparable in price. The real issue is the look of the image, as well as usability and features.

In Part 1 of this two-part series on the D800, I looked at the operation and functionality of the D800 as a video camera. Now, in Part 2, I’ll share some usability notes, as report the results of some audio and video tests comparing the D800 to another highly regarded DSLR, the Panasonic GH2, and to a more traditional prosumer camcorder.

REVIEW: How well does the Nikon D800 work for shooting video?

Anthony manhandles the Nikon D800.There’s no question that video-capable DSLR cameras offer a very different look from prosumer camcorders for about the same price. Plus you also get phenomenal stills, something no video camera–not even a 5k RED Epic–is going to match. I found this to be especially true when shooting with the 36 MP, full-frame, Nikon D800. The D800 and Nikkor 24-120mm VR lens system submitted for review by Nikon, lists for $4,200. A decent prosumer camcorder, like the Panasonic AG-AC160, which I had an opportunity to test a few months ago, has a street price just north of $4,000. So they are definitely comparable in price. The real issue is the look of the image, versus usability and features.

In this two-part series, I’ll begin by looking at how well the D800 works as a video camera, in terms of operability and functionality. In part two, I’ll report on some audio and video tests comparing the D800 to another highly regarded (though significantly less expensive) DSLR, the Panasonic GH2, and to a more traditional prosumer camcorder.

REVIEW: Litepanels MicroPro Hybrid DSLR LED

by IEBA on May.01, 2012, under Published Articles

Litepanels recently shipped the MicroPro Hybrid, a dimmable, on-camera Hybrid LED that can refresh itself much faster than most any strobe light can. Thus it may pack a powerful 1-2 punch for DSLR producers who need to capture both video and still images. But how well does it handle both tasks? In this article Anthony Burokas reviews the new light and compares it to an LED light that’s one-fifth the cost to see how these two lights measure up.

Adapting Smooth Servo Zoom Lenses for DSLR Production, Part 1

by IEBA on Feb.16, 2012, under Published Articles

DSLRs have become the standard by which current and future large-sensor camcorders are judged. But as we adopted DSLRs and primes to produce more “filmic” video for our clients, we left something critical behind: the feathery smooth servo zoom that serves feature film producers so well. So how do you get that capability on your DSLR?

REVIEW: Sonnet Qio High-Speed File Transport Center

by IEBA on Jan.11, 2012, under Published Articles

Sonnet has crafted a beautiful solution for rapid footage offload that gives your laptop far more connectivity, power, and capability than ever before. The system is solid, and in pure professional parlance, it does what it says it can do.
