If you still got an original Rode Videomic Pro and the flimsy shock mount is getting quite weak and also annoying with the rubber popping off each time when you get it out of your camera bag, you can replace the shockmount with a proper Rycote lyre yourself which is cheaper than buying the brand new mic which only added the lyre mount.

Hardware and Accessories / Power your DSLR 6+ hours
« on: May 22, 2014, 12:07:36 AM »

For full blogpost with more info go to:

In this video I am showing you how to power your Canon DSLR for more than 6 hours for less than $55 battery included.  6hours of battery is enough really for any event. Plus the bit extra is that the battery now is outside the camera and its a battery which is build for film cameras, so these batteries has less problems with overheating. Another thing is that the power indicator actually works and even would go into reds when the battery is low. However the low on these batteries still can film quite long with it in red before its really depleted.

Parts list

Sony NP-F970 battery:

Hardware and Accessories / Affordable DIY Top Handle
« on: February 11, 2014, 04:16:16 AM »
Affordable top handle design plus using the Kabuto Focus to enable using the same hand that hold the handle to change focus or zoom. Sorry for the scuffled look of the lens but the lens is pretty old and the weather sealing is literally falling off. And my other wide angle I am filming myself so that what the other lens I could only use to show a correct setup, the lens is actually a Sigma 14mm f3.5 and it is not a Fisheye.

For more info about the Kabutot Focus:

Actually you can buy a different grip instead of the grip I use there are metal camera grips which are shorter but when stacked on top of each other would not become crazy tall but slightly taller for your setup.

As my current grip used in the video are 12.5cm / 4.9" I am not sure how tall your setup is with the grip. The smaller grip are 7.5cm and stacked on top would be 15cm which Should probably be enough.

Makes no sense to build other way around as the other end has no mounting points. Plus both end is equally weighted with something the front with a camera and back a counter weight, so either way would do. But main point would be having a good monopod that can support both weights.

This is possible right cause there are read outs where the focus distance is, but need to be in much easier way to see the focus distances in a meter than just only numbers.

Hardware and Accessories / Re: Zenitar 16mm f/2.8 or Samyang 14mm f/2.8
« on: October 31, 2013, 01:38:17 AM »
Zenitar is not the sharpest lens used all open and f4 it is sharp. I never tried samyang, but I advice going for the 10-22mm f3.5-4.5 and its much wider and can use on full frame just removing the top on the back.

I am waiting till Metabones build a speedbooster for this, if there be a speedbooster then it be awesome as that changes the APSC on this to a full frame.

« on: October 31, 2013, 01:15:20 AM »
I use h4n plus ntg2 is OK but i have to say from test I am looking forward to the Sennheiser MKE600 myself which has better directional and get even less ambient also can be powered with AA battery, so the H4N don't use up all too much juice.
