Aloha everyone, Thank you for all the wonderful emails!, I'm glad to hear you are happy with your RedHeads and out there making it happen! That's the stuff that excites me most! I get a lot of questions about gear and thought you all may or may not find this useful. If you find the following content of value, I hope you enjoy. Those of you that know me know that I research the heck out of every little facet of anything I purchase. Weighing every possible option. Must be the Libra in me? Instead of reviewing everything in depth I will offer a brief description along with what I like and don't like about it : )

Hot shoe adapter for Zoom H1

October 9, 2010

This is a great hot shoe adapter for the Zoom H1 as it allows for just a bit more control over mic direction. Definitely a must have if you are using your Zoom H1 with a DSLR.

Best backpack for photography ? | Think tank “Streetwalker” !

April 20, 2010

WHAT I LIKE:
Of the dozens of backpacks I have owned this thing is by far the one I like most ! It’s a funny thing.. If the backpack is too big, it can become uninspiring to lug ALL the stuff it’s capable of holding.. If  it’s too small it can be very irritating to manage space like a pack rat on speed. This is where this backpack rules.. It’s like one of those small cars you get in and are like… “whoa !”, where did all this room come from ? In mine at all times ?.. Canon 5D2 with 85mm attached, 50,35,20 & 70-300 Zoom + Zoom H4n ( or other hand held recorder ), Five 4X4 Schneider optics glass filters, Lee filter holder, an intervalometer, and a bunch of other misc accessories.. Take my word, you will love this backpack..

WHAT I DON’T LIKE:
That it’s hard to sleep with..

Sony MDR7509HD Professional Headphones

February 21, 2010

WHAT I LIKE:
I’ve had mine since 2000 and they’re still going strong ! Industry standard for a good reason. This is the last place you want to skimp on quality : )

WHAT I DON’T LIKE:
nothing so far…

Canon 7D 18MP DSLR with 1080p Video

February 21, 2010

WHAT I LIKE
Price. It’s $1000 less than the 5D2. If you don’t absolutely need 21mp and can “settle” for 18, this cam is an incredible bargain.
24p. I don’t mind that as of this writing the Canon 5D Mark II only offers 30p but you might.. If you are a 24p junkie, this is the cam for you : )

WHAT I DON’T LIKE:
That I don’t own one.
