I recently purchased this NP-F970 Battery Adapter that is compatible with Canon DSLRs. I was a little worried about the quality from the pictures online but I thought I’d take the plunge and share my findings with you guys. After receiving the unit, I hooked it up with 2 Sony NP-F970 batteries and let if run all day with the camera recording AND powering my monitor… 8 Hours later, I called it a day and decided I like this thing. I still haven’t fully tested the unit to see how long it would power the camera and accessories but it’ll give you a full day at least.
I’ve had a lot of time with the Wooden Camera A-Box and I have really enjoyed using it. It not only works well, but it looks darn good doing it. Trust me when I say there isn’t a lot of elegant audio gear out there. If you’re looking for a small, stylish way to run your XLRs to 1/8″ this is the tool for you.
I stumbled across this great review of the Blackmagic 4K Production Camera and the Pocket Cinema Camera and had to share it. Very interesting findings by Emmanual Sapolsky. This video comes at a good time with all these new cameras coming out.
Are you planning on buying either of these cameras?
