I ran across this video from the team at Zacuto as they had some filmschool students put together an experimental rig using the Canon 7D with a Panavision Prime lens. This is definitely more for the Advanced Pro's, but I think any true 'Gear Geek' could spare a few centiliters of drool over the potential of this setup. It'll be nice to see what they shot with this rig!
OK this would normally not be so difficult but in this case, it is.
I have a household camera - Canon Zr500. Picked it up cause it was the only small camcorder I could find with an external mic port.
I also have a Raynox HD-5000Pro wide angle lens. It comes with a bunch of adapter rings and it fit on several previous home camcorders I had before this except for my current Zr500.
You would think Canon would know what the lens size is but noone there could tell me what the lens size is.
Hey, I own a Panasonic AG-HVX200. Somebody asked me this today, and made me curious...
With this camera, of course there is a manual zoom mode, which allows free movement of the zoom ring for quick snap-zooms. But also, when you set it to Servo, you are still able to manually zoom with the ring, it's just a little stiffer. The question is, does it harm the mechanics of the zoom lens to operate it by the ring when its set to Servo Zoom mode?

Can someone help me answer a question? I own the Sony FX7; and the instruction manual says that the camera should not be pointed directly at the sun, and that doing so can result in damage to the unit. But lots of videos have shots of the sun in them. In fact, videomaker's Tips and Tricks has an instructional video on shooting the sun. Is there really a risk of damaging my camera? If so, what needs to be done to prevent the damage? Thanks!
i need a fisheye wide angle lens, and a extra battery (prefer 5 hr.). its for my JVC GZ HD7. email me with anything please!
Does every wide qangle make like a circular border aound every camcorder...I know with the wide angle lens you get more view, but I feel im actually losing some parts of scenes because I can see the circular border that my wide angle lens makes...I have a 0.45x wide angle lens..
I'm in the process of setting up a commercial production studio, and I'm looking for advice from other video producers on my choice for primary camera.
I'm pretty much sold on the Sony PMW-EX3. However, I have to admit I don't know as much about Canon, JVC, or Panasonic's products as I should. The EX line gets so much press, it's hard to know what other comparable cameras I may be missing out on if I go that route. I know what features I want in a camera, but I'm not entirely sure which cameras (besides the EX1/3) will meet my needs.
it might be a stupid question but can I use LCD cleaner for my camcorder lens
