Getting into the HDSLR game isn’t a cheap move. While there are cheap rigs and gear out there, often they are poorly build and/or limited to only a few uses. This rig, on the other hand, is one that I really like using and its only $
20 (price varies these days). Thanks to Phil Hoyt for turning me onto this.
Here are the Parts I added to customize the rig further:
And keep in mind these are the parts I already had. I am sure you could find more affordable parts to make it work for you.

Another video for inspiration:
Steve Berra (The Berrics) joins Mexican skaters Jesus Gonzalez, Eder Martinez, Mario Saenz, Angel Santiago and American Luis Tolentino for this Burn Ignite film, shot on location in Mexico City.
This film was created alongside two short-form documentaries, one featuring Jess Kimura and the all girl hardcore snowboarding film collective Peep Show, the other is a portrait that celebrates the electric lyrics and gritty beat artistry of rapper/poet Julius Wright, aka Lyrical God.
If you are in or near Chicagoland you should come out and join us for the 2nd Chicago HDSLR Group Meetup.
There will be two sessions. One with JJ Kim (Orange Wedding Films) and myself talking about HDSLR basics and setups, and a second session with Mike Jones of Rusty Gate Films speaking on HDSLR usage and revolution in Music Video production.
To RSVP for the meetup visit the event page on FaceBook.

Have you ever wondered what the angle of view difference was between a 7D, 5D, and Super 35mm Film using a 10mm lens? Well now its easy to find out using Abel CineTech’s “Field of View Calculator” This is a great resource for quick reference. I also love how you can quickly find the differences in mm between the 7D and 5D so you can easily match cameras (lower right).
Check it out here.
With all these camera announcements, specs, and “Game Changers” its easy to forget what our game is about. Football isn’t about the materials use to make the ball, or the brand of shoe used. Its about still, passion and discipline. Todays post is just going to be some videos I recently found that inspired me. I am not going into what camera they were shot with, or what lenses were used.
So be inspired, convicted and encouraged to go out and create this week.
