I always appreciate a great video from Dave Dougdale of LearningDSLRVideo.com. His humble approach to doing exactly what the name of his informative website implies, learning DSLR video, is refreshing and resourceful. Case in point, Dave’s latest do-it-yourself project in which he drew upon inspiration from Knoptop’s original viewfinder creation (viewed here) and made a few revisions to a simple formula, resulting in an extremely useful, yet cost effective, tool for the frugal filmmaker.
Deal Alert – Amazon is currently offering the oldie, but goodie, Olympus E-PL1 for the bargain-basement price of just $149.95 body-only, or $289.00 with the 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 M.Zuiko kits lens.
Alas, more disappointing news for potential EOS-1D X purchasers… Amid the excitement of today’s EOS-1D C and C500 4K Cinema Camera announcements, comes word from Canon Europe regarding further delays hindering the availability of Canon’s highly anticipated DSLR. Today’s announcement states that the EOS-1D X will be released in mid-June due to “a delay to the start of mass production”- a postponement of nearly two months.
Japan’s Rayqual, the latest company to dip into the promising waters of Fuji X-Pro 1 lens adapters, has just revealed nine new models for Fuji’s mirrorless interchangeable lens beauty, bringing a Leica M, Nikon F, Contax/Yashica, Canon FD, Pentax K, Olympus OM, M42, Leica R, and Kodak offering to the market as of today, April 12th, 2012.
Once again, the reports circulating around the inter-webs these past few days proved to be credible, as Canon has just officially announced the 4K-capable EOS-1D C and C500, two new digital cinema compliments to the former flagship, the C300.
Both cameras, expected to be fully showcased at NAB 2012, held from April 16 to 19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, are expected to make landfall by the end of 2012, with the EOS-1D C MSRP set at $15,000, while the EOS C500 price is still yet to be determined as it is still under development.
