Beyond the standing desk, beyond on the Herman Miller chair, there’s other things to sit on while working at your desk like an exercise ball. And beyond on exercise ball there’s also the ergoErgo. I got one of those for Christmas and added it to my arsenal of things on which to sit on while working.

The good folks at Amazon dropped off a package the other day for a brand-new G-Technology G|DRIVE ev RaW “rugged” drive. I wanted to try one of these drives because as one who edits in several different locations I’m often shuttling media from one system to the other. I don’t carry around any padded foam case on a daily basis so usually these drives just go into a backpack and they get jostled around quite a bit. This new G-Tech series of drives looks to take the portable drive to another level with soft rubber bumpers and even special casings. I elected for the G|DRIVE ev RaW as I really don't need the drive to float.

Once again I’m honored to be teaching/leading/presenting (and learning myself) a number of classes at this year’s Post|Production World Conference at the National Association of Broadcasters convention. This is always a highlight of my year as it gets me out of the editing suite and working outside of my comfort zone. More importantly it’s fun and I meet a lot of great people.

GoPro Replacement Lenses for Hero3/3+ Black from Peau ProductionsThe more that I've gotten into aerial videography & photography with the GoPro Hero3/3+ Black, the more I've had issue with the GoPro's OEM "fisheye" wide angle HFOV (Horizontal Field Of View), which distorts the horizon and creates a curved "bubble" effect. The biggest issue with that is when the quadcopter is in motion or...

Canon's Newest Wide LensCanon's latest update to the 5D line has been leaked. Some of this news we have seen, like the 50.6MP CMOS Sensor, and some of this news is new. For me, I hadn't seen the new 11-24mm F4 lens until today, which by the way is very wide.
