EDIT: Now with new “Bokeh Circles” tests….An adaptor which claims to make your lens, faster, wider and better! This is NOT an April Fool’s!
ETHICS: I have no business relationship with either Metabone or Conurus. They asked if I wanted to borrow a new lens adaptor for review that was “revolutionary”. Naturally I said YES PLEASE! I am receiving no financial remuneration for this blog post nor do I ever for any review, the exception being for any products that are […]

There are a lot of people who are saying that DSLRs for pro video work is dead. I have to disagree; it’s slowed down but it’s far from dead. Although I shoot 95% of my paid work on the Canon C300, the Mk3 is always with me as backup, B camera. It’s a compromise […]
ETHICS STATEMENT: I made this in my own time (and it took A LOT of time!) for the readers of my blog. I was not paid by any manufacturer to do this. The FS700 was supplied to me on loan as review cameras for 3 days by Sony Europe. I asked for the camera so […]

I am writing this at London’s Gatwick airport waiting to board a flight to Vegas and NAB. Just 48 hours after getting home from Australia! UGH. Travelling sucks. Trust me…it’s not glamorous. It’s exhausting. But I am looking forward to catching up with all my friends and meeting lots of great new people. Canon are […]
PHILIP BLOOM: The Sony NEX-FS100 is a powerful camera. Amazing image, great price. I am not a fan of the design as I find it awkward as hell but you get used to it! It’s damn fiddly to operate but everytime I use it I am wowed by the image and that is the […]

Read more in my full ethics statement here. I rarely post about new products that I have not touched, but this looks interesting enough to share… I love the Sony FS100 because it’s cheap and produces a great image. It did incredibly well in my recent shootout. It’s not perfect. Build quality is a wee […]
“Which camera should I buy?” I get asked this the most. Apart from which lenses should I buy. There is a lot of confusion amongst potential buyers as to which camera to buy. Not just from the Canon line, that is the Rebel T2i/ 55D, 7D, 5DmkII and 1DmkIV but also the GH1, GH2 and […]

Ethics Statement: I was paid by Sony to make three short pieces with detailed “how to” shoots on how to use the camera. I am not in the permanent employ of Sony or under contract. I took on this job as it excited me, was a chance to get more experience on the FS100, and […]
