Put a Wimberly Plamp in your photog's stocking

What the heck is a Plamp? The plamp a very handy device when you run out of hands!
One end of the Plamp clamps to your tripod while the other grasps the object. Use the Plamp to stabilize windblown subjects, adjust the position or angle of your subject, or move obstructing foliage. You can also use the Plamp to hold reflectors and lens shades. One day in the field with a Plamp and you will begin to realize its full potential.

Video Tripods.
Why would you use a dedicated video tripod over your old 3-way or ball head?
Two reasons; smoother pans and consistency in repeatable movements.  Many new videographers or those trying out the video capabilities of a new DSLR for the first time, try to save money by "making do" by using a still tripod and head to achieve their desired video movements. While this certainly will do in a pinch, it is often not till you get to see the footage on a larger screen that you see the shortfalls of  using inadequate equipment, such as;  jerky movements, looking like the you tried to pan right after getting out of the water after the polar bear swim, "backlash," where, as you finish the pan, the legs snap back in the opposite direction of pan, inconsistency, you nail the pan or the tilt sometimes but when it really counts and the "pressure is on," the results are disappointing.

Just in time for Christmas we have the Manfrotto 547B+701HD Kit on special.  A great lightweight Video tripod and head combo perfect for DSLR Video, and it even comes with a carrying bag.

Sale on Video Microphones and digital recording devices.

The video quality of DSLR cameras nowadays can be spectacular, even mainstream television and movies are being made with these cameras. Where these cameras fall short, is in their built-in microphones. While these mics are better than nothing, the quality of recording improves greatly with the addition of a external recording device mounted on the hot-shoe of the camera.  Companies like Røde and Sennheiser make a wide range of high quality mini shotgun and stereo mics, in a wide range of prices, that will take your video sound to a whole new level.  Zoom makes external recording devices that record to an SD card that you sync up to the video footage later. There are automated synchronization software products like "PluralEyes 3" that can make this a breeze to achieve.

From now till Christmas all in-stock Sennheiser, Røde and Zoom products are 10% off our regular low prices.
