If you’re looking for a flexible shoulder mount kit that will grow with you, you should consider the Genustech Shoulder Rig Kit. This kit has everything you would need when building a rig for a shoot.
Baseplates are one of the most important parts of any rig. They are the foundation of your sensor and should be taken very seriously. They are often the only thing between your camera and rod system. In this video we look at the Universal Adapter Bar System and the DSLR Adapter Bar System from Genustech.
Clip on matte boxes are very important for DSLR shooters, or really anyone using still lenses for video. The problem with a lot still lenses is that they move when you focus or zoom the lens. This is a big problem when you have a rod mounted matte box because the lens will hit the filters and could cause damage to the lens or the filters. And if you back the lens up to much you will get vignetting.
The solution is to use a clip on matt box which will travel with the lens. The other benefit, is you don’t need rods for the matte box, so you can have a very light and fast rig without being tied to a rod based rig system.
This is where the Genustech Matte Box Lite Kit comes in. It is the perfect budget clip on matte box for any shooter. Watch the Genustech Matte Box Lite Kit review below and check out the pros and cons to see if this is the right matte box for you.
Blackmagic just announced that their newest camera, the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K, will be sold at a mind boggling $2995. I find it interesting that this news comes out shortly after Panasonic announces their 4K GH4 camera which is rumored to retail for under $2,000. At any rate, there are going to be a lot of options as budget filmmakers consider 4K upgrades to their DSLRs. Check out the press release below for more information.
While we are still waiting for pricing information, Panasonic has given us some more information on the Panasonic GH4 4K Camera. As someone looking into upgrading my camera bodies, I’m very curious to see how this camera performs. Check out the specs, 4K footage, and images below.
I really like the product because I think it’s embracing the future of cinema cameras. The bodies of cameras are getting smaller and smaller, To where we will eventually attach a small box to our lenses. This is what this mod kit does to the GoPro. Takes a great camera and allows it to be customized with any lens.
Congratulations to Scott for winning the gear! Stay tuned for more giveaways including lenses and LED panels…

After doing my audio bag tour, a lot of people asked for a tour of my camera bag. After using a Pelican case for several years, I found myself wanting a lighter, faster DSLR video bag that could hold two complete camera systems. Here is a detailed look at what I came up with
