Flashpoint 500C LED Light

The Flaspoint 500C LED dimmable light is a rather compact and affordable LED solution from Adorama. The light features 500 individual LED bulbs – 250 of which are daylight balanced and 250 of which are tungsten balanced.

The two sets of LED bulbs are controlled by two independent dimmer knobs. As a result, you have a fully dimmable light and a variable color temperature light. Both are pretty cool features for a $200 video light. [click to continue…]

Sony RX100 Review

by on November 1, 2012

in Sony

The Sony Cyber-shot RX100 is a 20MP point and shoot camera.  But this isn’t just any point and shoot camera.  The RX100 sets itself apart from every other compact camera out there thanks to a much larger image sensor, which measures the same size as the Nikon 1 Series mirrorless camera system.  Somehow, Sony managed to cram that sensor into a pocketable digicam.

Read on to find out if that big sensor combined with the rest of the RX100 features is enough to make this camera the king of pocket cams. [click to continue…]

Sony NEX-EA50

The new Sony NEX-EA50 was quite the surprise when Sony unveiled it a couple of weeks ago.  Dan Chung of DSLR News Shooter recently got a hands-on demo of the new APS-C powered, ENG-style camera at the BIRTV show in Beijing.

Check out the video below for a walkthrough of the NEX-EA50′s features. [click to continue…]

ioSafe Extreme

The ioSafe Extreme is a portable, bus-powered hard drive that is built like a tank.  It is available in 500GB or 1TB capacities with a 5400RPM spinning drive, or with a SSD drive from 120GB-600GB capacities.  The latest models are USB 3.0 only; however, the model that I reviewed was a FW800 with a 5400RPM 1TB drive inside.

The enclosure is a solid aluminum enclosure that matches up nicely with current generation Mac products.  Moreover, the aluminum enclosure is crush resistant up to 2500 lbs, while the available titanium enclosure is crush proof up to 5000 lbs.  Essentially, you can run over these things with a car and it will still function properly.
