Everyone needs a Redhead for their Zoom H4ns!

I stumbled upon these by accident whilst trawling twitter and vimeo and they made me laugh. Mainly the colour as it made me chuckle! They are for the Zoom H4n audio recorder which I recommend for any video dslr users out there to record sound. They go over the two directional internal mics and are […]

5 more films are reviewed by myself and Steve Weiss in episode 3 of Critics. Quite why Steve added the fourth one to the list and actually selected it you have to ask him 🙂 But at least it gave us a chance to be a bit silly, hey and it’s good to have a […]
