I recently started using two cameras to film my podcasts and needed to rethink how I monitor them. I am aways striving to make things more efficient, so rather than mount each monitor separately, I built a rig to hold both monitors. The new setup allows me to remove the monitors with just one clamp. This makes packing up my podcast gear a breeze.
The Aputure V-Screen monitor is one of the best affordable monitors money can buy today. You can’t find another brand that has a monitor at this price with this many features. As someone who is always looking for affordable gear to recommend, I was very excited to see Aputure come out with something this feature packed at a modest price.
For the past 4 years I’ve been creating content on my own, but today I am very excited to announce some new guys will be joining me. Alex Smith and Stephen Holzman of Holzman & Smith Studios will be helping me out with some reviews. Be sure to check out their work and enjoy their killer Zoom H6 review!
Zoom has made one of the best audio recording devices out there. Check out an in depth take of how the Zoom H6 functions in the field.
This must have been one of the most difficult productions. Ever. Not only are you dealing with a herd of uncontrollable felines, but you’re releasing them into an environment loaded with nooks and crannies. Brilliant marketing in the ad, but not one I would want to produce!

Most people don’t know this about me, but I actually worked on a Ranch most of my summers as a teen and I lived on one for a year before moving to Chicago. So when I saw this video I could relate to the environments. Not so much the english stuff though, I have always been more of a western guy.
Bobby Goulding recently contacted me about his upcoming film called Moving the Sun. After watching the trailer I had to share it with you guys. It is now in production with filming beginning in January and the Kickstarter only has 1 week left to get the project funded. Lets help him get there!
The Canon 40mm F2.8 STM recently went on sale for $129 online so I had to grab one. I don’t have that many lenses and I really wanted a small lens for the EOS-M to use for podcasting. So now my lens collection is as follows:
- Tamron 24-70mm F2.8 VC
- Canon EF 100mm F2.8 Macro
- Canon 40mm F2.8 STM
- Zenitar 16mm F2.8 Wide Angle Prime
- Other random manual lenses…
Next I’d like to get a 70-200 and a 16-35. But the lenses I have now are working great.
