  • There are many times I wish I had one of these. Not just for podcasting but for playing my drums or rocking out on my guitar. I stopped by Vocalbooth to learn more about sound booth technology. Its more than just putting up some eggshell foam into a room. I talked with Guy from Vocalbooth to learn more about these rooms you can put […]

  • As a geek I am intrigued on robotic camera options that can get a stable shot from anywhere. When I stopped by the Freefly booth, I saw the Tero remote controlled camera operator. I also geeked out on the Movi M5 – a camera stabilization unit. I got to talk with Sam Baird from Freefly about not only the Tero and Movi M5 but also […]

  • Hope you had an awesome Easter weekend. The temperatures took a swift kick and spring all of a sudden was here. Bought a firepit to enjoy in the backyard – along with some new found bicycling trails around the area here. Catching up on everything – the NAB videos are starting to wrap as I have some new products to review. TWIGG was a […]

  • WeVideo is a great way for someone like me to really get video out to my Blip and YouTube services. The Cloud based video editor allows me to not have to carry a computer while I am on the floor interviewing people. All I have to do is upload the video to the service then do the editing on a tablet, phone or even […]

  • Since I create “Gun and Run” interviews, I have no time to figure out if the lighting is perfect. Sometimes it comes back to bite me – all for the 3 minute video at trade shows. I stopped by Rotolight to find out about not only their portable solutions but also their production studio lighting. I walked away with a new found knowledge and […]

  • If you ever had to take gear onto a plane, you know how protective you need to make your equipment. Most camera gear comes with you on the plane. If it doesn’t fit in the overhead, it goes by your feet where it could get kicked and banged. Then again, gear in the overhead could get moved around as well. Pelican case makes a […]

  • In the drone market, DJI is making their mark with items such as the Phantom 2 vision+. A lightweight quadcopter that can connect wirelessly and run up to 2,000 feet from the controller. This makes for some great video shots overhead with smaller sized cameras. The Phantom 2 also has a 3-axis attachment for full camera stabilization. So if the device hits a pocket of […]

  • In the first video, we got to see what the 360Heros system is all about. Now its time to put the video into production. That is where this station comes in with Oculus Rift glasses. Mike shows us how the 360Heros system will stitch together video for a 3D view of an event. It could be anything from a concert to a family gathering. […]

  • As a one-man crew, I am always looking for cool new ways to make my rig work for me. When I talked to the folks at Soloshot, I was intrigued on how they are using GPS and sensors to help the camera move to where you are. Perfect for if you have an unmanned camera. The Soloshot 2 is the newest in line of […]

  • When I create some videos, I use streaming software to do it – mainly Wirecast. This is a great way for me to put on layers (such as lower 3rds) and get the content out to you. Paladin has seen what I do and improved on it with the Paladin S3 streaming box. Best part – they also have made portable versions of it. […]

  • I have been thinking about adding a teleprompter to my video podcasts. Something that if I script a section, I can read it and still look like I am looking at a camera. The current situation I have a monitor underneath the camera which turns to be very noticeable when I am reading. Plus, I will lose my place because I re-focus back to […]
