The WristShot makes filming yellow walls easy

Camcorders have come a long way from the analogue behemoths people were forced to lug about in days gone by. With the steady reduction in size, it has not only lightened the load for budding directors, but also it has done away with the need to rest the camera on your shoulder when filming, with the exception of expensive professional models. But this has had a downside – increasingly unstable shots as the user’s hand tires and begins to shake. Camera accessory manufacturer Hoodman has come to the rescue, however, with a simple solution that gives videographers’ wrists a rest. The WristShot is a camera mount that transfers the weight of the camera from the wrist to the forearm.  Read More

Canon EOS Rebel T1i

Digital SLR cameras featuring HD video capture have burst onto the market in recent months and Canon has now put this functionality within reach of a much wider audience by including 1080p recording in the latest addition to its entry level Rebel range. The new EOS Rebel T1i Digital SLR sports a 15.1 megapixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC 4 Imaging Processor, nine-point Autofocus, a 3.0-inch LCD and shoots 1080p video at 20 fps and 720p HD video capture at 30 fps. The best bit - at USD$800 (body only) it's around a third of the price of the HD video capable EOS 5D Mark II released in September last year.  Read More
