I recently had the opportunity to work with the SmallHD 5.5" FOCUS OLED On-Camera Monitor for HDMI. What you need to know is swipe left, swipe right, swipe up, and swipe down. It takes a little time to figure it out—at first I was swiping too fast, but the touchscreen interface replaces front-panel buttons, switches, and knobs.

First, the RED DSMC2 GEMINI 5K S35, which has a 5K Super35mm sensor, is a great camera; I enjoyed working with it and would do so again with no reservations.

Long known for solid, stable sliders, Rhino wants to make smooth camera movement much easier for everyday use and travel, with the RŌV series. Taking all the brilliance of its EVO sliders and Motion controllers and condensing it down into a single unit—with the added benefit of Bluetooth connectivity—Rhino created something truly amazing. Going hands-on with the RŌV made it clear to me that it is one of the most intuitive, portable, and

Shure recognizes the importance of sound and wants to make life a whole lot easier on today’s creators with the launch of the MV88+ Video Kit for smartphones at CES 2019. This compact microphone builds upon the design of its predecessor to create a more open system, add features, and bundle-in accessories so users can go out and start

Billed as an IR night vision action camera, the Aurora IR Night Vision Camera, by SiOnyx, has a lot of expectations to live up to. When it arrived at my desk, I was cautiously optimistic. After playing with it for a little while, I was impressed, though I question whether I’d call it an action camera.

Flexible tripods have become a big hit, thanks to Joby and the GorillaPod line. Now, these previously mobile-oriented and compact supports have grown and evolved into options for professionals. The GorillaPod Video PRO line is the latest in this expansion, using both their sturdy legs for mirrorless and DSLR cameras and combining them with a fluid head for more professional video applications. This series is starting out with the
The Luxli Timpani 1x1 RGBAW LED light entered the 1x1 panel market to a lot of attention, thanks to its four built-in operational modes. Other features, including remote app control and a very slim enclosure, certainly complete the compact all-in-one fixture that it is, but the four modes are what make the Timpani stand out among the many 1x1 panels already on the market, because most of the available models have no more than two
Simply put, the DJI Mavic 2 is the best drone in its class. From top to tail, it excels in nearly every category of performance and design. In fact, the closest the Mavic comes to a true rivalry is between its two subclasses, the Pro and the Zoom. This
An old commercial jingle went, “Weebles wobble, but they don’t fall down.” Today, I’ll tell you that the Zhiyun-Tech WEEBILL LAB doesn’t wobble. It’s also one of the smaller handheld stabilizers in its class, no doubt a reference to the tiny Australian bird of the same name, and offers a unique design approach with bonus features you won’t find standard on similar models. We spent some time with this stabilizer and were quite happy
