Finally a British DSLR rig!

May 16, 2011 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

[vimeo]23732826[/vimeo] Sam Morgan Moore has launched hisĀ Half Inch Rails S2 camera support. Watch the great summary above. The main reason I like DSLRs is because they’re small and flexible and it made no sense to me to see all these huge one-purpose rigs coming out recently that basically took your nimble digital cinema camera and turned into a heavy ENG camera in need of 3 pairs of hands just to pick up.

Apps are the future of DSLRs

May 16, 2011 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

Looking back at my photography I think over half of the shots I really treasure are from my iPhone, which is quite amazing for a fixed lens camera with a tiny sensor and no manual control.

Turning the LA7200 into a focussing anamorphic on the Canon 5D Mk II

May 4, 2011 Andrew Reid (EOSHD)

[vimeo]23042151[/vimeo] This is an ingenious manipulation of the Panasonic LA7200 anamorphic adapter, on the Canon 5D Mark II. The LA7200 works well at wide angles, especially on crop sensor cameras but at fast apertures, with close focus and on full frame DSLRs like the 5D Mark II it isn’t really usable since it isn’t a focussing anamorphic like the Iscorama and you get a blurry image.
