With all the recent interest in 360º VR technology, cameras like the Ricoh Theta S and the new GoPro Fusion, we’re only just beginning to scratch the surface on the latest craze. After Facebook introduced the ability to view 360 panorama images directly in the page feeds, they not only allow you to upload directly from […]

I’ve been testing these small portable LED light panels from Polaroid throughout the year in various types of productions and found that we rarely ever head out of the studio without at least one of them in our kit. Used as a portable fill or accent light, a hair light on green screen, or put […]

As a member of the press, I was invited to the GoPro new product launch and media event at Squaw Valley Resort in Lake Tahoe this week and will be sharing info, updates and my first impressions hands-on with the new GoPro Hero5 and Karma.
