There are two things we love about Tom's reviews and blog posts. The first one is his cool coffee table housing a Grass Valley switcher control panel. The second is his passion about passing on information and experience. Here he tests the Kessler Pocket Dolly Traveler with the Basic Controller.
Erik Widding of Birger Engineering demonstrates the latest working prototype of his Canon EOS to Micro 4/3, AF100 and Sony NEX adapters. These adapters bring the speed and flexibility of DSLR shooting to the AF100 and Sony NEX.
It seems there's no need to spend thousands on rigs and mounts for your 5D when you can go to Ikea, spend $7 on a cutting board, use some old pipe and suddenly you've got a DSLR shoulder mount! More after the break.
OK so here's the thing, you go and shoot with your DSLR, but now you've got to get your source files into an editable format for FCP. So cue a big fat file transfer. Wouldn't you prefer to simplify the system and record direct from to the Timeline?

Thanks to CREWS TV for spotting this story. All the spec and more after the break.
UPDATE: Marshall release a loop through monitor.
