As always, solutions come from relatively simple setups. One of the beef's users of DSLR video cameras have is not being able to monitor their audio while shooting. Apparently the folks over at Orange Wedding Films used one of my old standby's to link up an Zoom H4n to monitor through headphones and record audio directly into the camera using a Radio Shack Mini Splitter. Despite all the XLR connections I have on gear, I always keep a fistful of mini splitters around for stuff just like this. Check it out....
Anyone who's read my post's regularly probably knows I'm down with DIY solutions to solve professional equipment and production problems. Here's one by Jonathan Christen Bergqvist that combines furniture making and RC model tech to make a pretty cool shoulder rig. Check this out....
Just posted a few interval DSLR timelapse clips from San Francisco.

For nearly a year I've been posting about the revolution DSLR cameras have been causing and posting 'beauty' vids from the cam's in action. However, my posts have been lopsided towards the Canon line of rigs. In an attempt to be balanced, here's a short vid by Carolyn Pitcavage called Uncle Jack. Normally, quirky flicks give me the hives, but this one was worth the initial itching. It was shot with the Pentax K7. Enjoy.
