B&H has the Tascam iM2 stereo mic adapter for the iPhone, iPad and iPhone for only $28.99 (reg. $89). Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Note, the iM2 doesn’t have the new Lightning adapter (as you can see in the above image), so it won’t fit the iPhone 5.
Zacuto has a new Z-Finder Pro designed for the Panasonic GH3 thanks to a GH3-specific Gorilla Plate that attaches to the bottom of the camera.
The GH-3 Z-Finder Pro has a 2.5x magnification and diopter for fine-tuning focus. If you already have a Z-Finder Pro or Jr., you can just pick up a Gorilla Plate and frame for the GH3.
The Z-Finder Pro for the GH3 retails for $395. The GH3 frame and plate kit runs $129. More details on Zacuto’s website.

Now, the DxO team is singing a different song after further comparisons between the cameras using high quality lenses. [click to continue…]
