Because the original one was way too dark, I’ve gone ahead and reuploaded my previous video with comparisons between the Rode VideoMic Pro and the built-in microphone of the Lumix G85, along with some tap to focus tests and more rambling on about exposing to the right. This new video also looks at the RodeLink… Read More
In this video, we compare the Rode VideoMic Pro to the built-in microphone on the Lumix G85. I have the camera mounted on the Zhiyun Crane gimbal stabilizer. One difficulty I ran into is that with the LCD screen swung out to the side and the mic mounted on the hot shoe, it’s impossible to… Read More
The Saigon Central Post Office in all its splendor. I love the natural light in this building. I’ve got no idea how women can look so impeccable in this sweltering heat.
I shot with the Fuji X-T2 on the Zhiyun Crane for all the clips. I love the small f/2 lenses, they’re so easy to balance on a gimbal.

Te Very few lenses in the m43 catalogue have impressed me as much as the Leica DG Summilux 12mm f/1.4. First of all, it is exceedingly difficult to design a micro four thirds lens of such parameters; and while there have been several very good wide angle primes designed for the system, none have exactly smashed… Read More
In previous posts, I wrote that my gimbal was experiencing serious shake, even after the stabilizer had been properly balanced and calibrated. This effectively meant that I was without a camera for the whole of my two-week trip to George Town and Langkawi, Malaysia. Every single clip was ruined with jitter issues, which I posted… Read More
A distraught forum member over at EOSHD, who has already purchased two Zhiyun Cranes, posted this video, saying the gimbal isn’t operating normally when in inverted mode. I suggested he hold the stabilizer by the handle, not by the pan motor! 🙂
