17Mar Smallrig NATO protective rails.

12Mar Olympus E-M5 Mark II Image stabilization in action

If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s worth a look. Basically the guys from panophoto.net attached a Panasonic GH4 with 12-35mm f2.8 OIS (image stablized) lens and a Olympus E-M5 mark II with the Olympus 12-40mm f2.8 to a mounting plate and walked around for about 10 min.

11Mar Saramonic SR-AX107 – First Impressions

The Saramonic SR-AX107 just showed up today. Build is solid and the finish is on par with what you get from Juicedlink and beachtek. The red faceplate on the Saramonic will do little to improve audio quality, but it’s starting to grow on me.  Setting next to a Beachtek DXA-SLR, you can see that it’s a little […]

If you’re a M4/3 shooter, I […]

07Mar StarTech Universal USB 3.0 4K Laptop Docking Station Review

I’ve been using the MSI GS60 for the last 4 or 5 months as a high powered editing laptop. Lately I’ve been wondering if it could end up being a desktop replacement, so I started searching for some kind of docking station. After a bit of research I came across the Startech Universal 4k docking […]
