files

When the files get to 4gb, how long until you can start recording video again, given there's still space on the card? Would there be problem recording for 8hrs?

Peter, you can start recording right away after the first 12 minutes, and you can record as long as you want, 8-10 hours as long as the camera doesn't overheat and you have plenty of batteries and you stop recording every 12 minutes.

Welcome to DV-info :)

DSLR viewfinder review & comparison

It's me again, this time I did a very extensive blog post on DSLR viewfinders, comparing Zacuto Z-Finder Jr, Z-Finder Pro 2.5x, LCDVF, Cavision, Hoodman HoodLoupe and an accessory by Redrock Micro.

Perhaps you should have reviewed the Hoodman Cinema Kit Pro. It would certainly have been more comparable to the others you reviewed. It attaches the hood to your camera and swivels away to take pictures. I just used mine on a T2i at Seaworld in San Diego and it worked great.

Not to mention that the HoodMag improves the HoodLoupe greatly. With the HoodLoupe, you need to center your eye precisely or the image gets soft. Add the HoodMag and it's completely forgiving.

Sorry, would have liked to review that, but I had to work with what B&H could supply me with!

I will review the new Letus Hawk VF and LCDVF3/2 though, both manufacturers contacted me.

I like them very much. I've not had other versions of either so I can't really speak to how they compare to the likes of RedRock or Zacuto, but I've been more than pleased.

The FollowFocus seems to be just fine and I love the snap gears.

I've gotten some cool shots with the slider. I can easily seeing spending more money to get a motorized slider or one with a crank, that would really be nice. But for the money it's great, I take it on all my shoots.

Now I'm waiting for them to make a crane. :D

Hey Nino, I noticed that a week after you posted your review the grips on Amazon you linked to went from
79.99 to 116.99. I had one on my Wish List and when I switched it to my basket it updated the prices.
My guess is that someone is paying attention to your blog if they are changing the price by that much.
;)

BTW - I was looking at buying the GGS LCD shield for my T2i. Two weeks ago the price on Amazon was 16.99, now it's $10 more!
Obviously T2i accessories are hot right now and sellers are trying to get the most for them.

There are similar grips on ebay for $50 or less. I'm holding out for the LCD grip for the T2i with the intervalometer built in.

Hey everyone, I've been looking into getting a matte box, follow focus and rails for my T2i. I'm looking for the cheapest and best solution :)

Any experience please post!

wish these guys were around when I got all my stuff!
A friend bought a complete rig and is very happy with it. Looks very well made and a LOT less money than the other manufacturers.
