Zacuto’s Z-finder Pro is an optical viewfinder that clips to your camera to enlarge the image on the LCD screen. It costs a lot more than cheaper loupes. Should you buy one?
I’ve been testing the Canon XC10. It’s an easy-to-use pro camcorder – with excellent image stabilisation – that looks like a DSLR stills camera. The XC10 is for people who want to be able to shoot high-quality video without a big, expensive or complicated camera.
I used Canon’s XA20 over the summer. It’s a small and very easy-to-use pro camcorder, and a good alternative to a DSLR for news, events and documentaries.
Rode’s new wireless radio microphone system is affordable, effective and easy to use. It’s a good alternative to on-camera and boom mics, particularly for solo shooters.
