I don’t like Steadicams. Don’t get me wrong, I love what can be done with them, I just don’t like using them. But when DE Cinema asked and persisted I try their Steadicam X-PRO+ I decided to give it a shot even if I was horrible at it. My results were decent as someone who isn’t very good with stabilizers and I look forward to practicing and showing you guys better results. Don’t judge the gear by what you see from this, as I am NOT a steadicam operator. I know I can get much better shots as I improve my operating skills. That said, here is my review as a non-Steadicam operator.
Switronix has release a new TorchLED model called the 220 and I have one to review and compare to the older 200 version. Check out my review here:
Note on prices:
I mentioned some deals in the video that won’t always be in effect. So please don’t get nasty if the price is different. Retail for the 220 is $379 before any deals.

I’ve tried so many different hard drives over the past 5 years of editing and I’ve found one brand to make the best mobile drives.
The name says it all. At a few millimeters thicker than a iPhone, this is one of the thinest drives you can buy. I like to use this drive for dailies, extra backups and as a general use drive.

UPDATE: Congratulations to Ethan for winning the lens! Email sent.
Thought I would do a giveaway for the 100th episode of the DSLR Video Shooter podcast. I can’t thank you all enough for the support, encouragement and positive criticism you’ve provided over the years. Without it, I wouldn’t have put all this content together. This whole site is your fault.
And for those of you who have purchased gear through my site or tipped my videos you deserve a special thank you for helping me keep food on the table and content flowing. You’re the best!
