  • Thanks for the lesson. You're cool!

  • Commented on Flashpoint 180 Monolight Review article

    Thanks. I rebuilt it from the crank up.

  • Commented on Orion DVC210 DLSR Crane Review article

    I shot with a wide-angle lens, which enhanced distortion. It was also 15 degrees out, and my hands were about to fall off.

  • Commented on Orion DVC210 DLSR Crane Review article

    This review focused on DSLR video production. Obviously, a crane is not the ideal tool for still photography. Although, it can be nice to reach significant heights whilst remaining stable.

  • Commented on Cinetics Axis360 review article

    Check the Kickstarter page for the Axis360. They have more samples.

  • Commented on Cinetics Axis360 review article

    Honestly, I spent three straight days testing the ever-loving lights out of this thing, and happened to have a 14mm on without even thinking. Sorry about that. If I had more time, I would have...

  • Commented on Cinetics Axis360 review article

    Look at the Kessler prices compared to the Axis360.

  • It's fairly easy to do. With the Eye-Fi Pro X2, you can command it to transfer only JPEGs to a computer, tablet, or phone, while the RAW files will remain on the card and not transfer. I use a...

  • Cane, that is hilarious! Made my day.

  • It is much better than previous generation GoPros. Check out the still grabs in the SuperView section of the review.

  • Thank is an understatement, mbanas! I WISH I could have even 1/64 of Neil's talent. I did all the testing in the videos, one of the fun parts of the reviewing process. If only the weather was...

  • Great advice––thank you!

  • I'm self-taught (no formal training at all) and was just tooling around. When I played some of it back, I cringed at a few off-time beats, but hey, look at Keith Moon at times! About the bass, I...

  • That is good to know an adapter exists in order to provide external audio options. Thanks!

  • With the housing, the GoPro is still tiny. I took product shots without the housing in order to display the terminals, battery bay and controls.

  • This is more of a hands-on account, as I am a freelance writer for DP Review. That doesn't mean I don't pour hours into testing and analyzing every single product I review, backed by years of...

  • Keep in mind that I didn't do any post enhancements. Ideally, shooting at 60P in well-lit environments with color correction and levels will yield some pretty awesome results.

  • The Eye-Fi Mobi targets beginners and mobile device fanatics with its simple setup and easy-to-use design. How does the Mobi stack up against the pricier Eye-Fi Pro X2 card? Read on to find out.
  • If you read the full review, there's a sizable section that addresses Wi-Fi and using your smartphone to act as an external monitor. Even if the GoPro had an LCD screen built into the back of it,...
