DSLR Video Shooter: Top 10 Video Gear Picks of 2014.
Xmas gift suggestion: Gordy’s camera straps.
Great stuff, and you’ll be supporting a fellow blogger.
Note: I’ll start doing these occasionally, pointing to those who frequent this blog and have wares for sale.

OneHeadlightInk: Batman V. Superman WRAPS in Taos, New Mexico.
FYI for fans. No Affleck or other ‘star’ sightings, that I’ve heard about.
The Luminous Landscape: Sony A7 MKII Hands On.
“No Virginia, there is no 4K video. My guess is that this is being reserved for the anticipated A9 model due some time in early 2015 – at least according to the rumour mill.” That’s going to put a damper on sales ... a ‘better’ A9 model?
Youtube: The Avengers Sing Christmas Carols.
Forget the beginning; go to 0:41.
Youtube: Random Acts of Pasta.
Some nice news, for once.
Vimeo: The Beast of Turin trailer.
DSLR Video Shooter: The Best Cheap Video Camera Right Now.
Sony a5000. Like $298 with lens. I’m not recommending, just pointing out.
SciAm: Cities Want Cops to Wear Cameras, but Technology Could Heighten Distrust if Not Carefully Use
EOS HD: Does Cinema EOS mark the end of high spec Canon DSLR video?
Art of VFX: GODZILLA - VFX Breakdown by MPC.
The blue fire is worth the view, IMHO.
Youtube: Antares rocket explosion from the launch pad.
My ears hurt, even with the sound turned down.
The Luminous Landscape: Samsung NX1 First Impressions.
One look at the specs, you’ll go cross-eyed. Lack of lens options, however.
WSJ: Drone Flights Face FAA Hit.
Paywall blocks reading it for me, but some of you may have access. Sounds like the FAA is going restrictive, as I expected.
The Verge: Adobe’s got Photoshop running in Chrome.
Youtube: Buddy Guy & Jimi Hendrix - Jam Session.
the interpreter: ISIS beheadings are a grotesque media strategy
“None of these actions are designed to dissuade Western military intervention in Iraq or Syria, or even to goad the West into becoming decisively committed on the ground, because ISIS understands this is unlikely to occur. Rather, it has a much more short-term aim: to get ISIS’s military and political setbacks out of the media cycle and replace them with bloody imagery that demonstrates ISIS is still a force.” It is very unsettling to see social media and personal branding strategies used for these purposes.
Youtube: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy gag reel - Dance Off.
BBC: Topless sunbather photographed by estate agent drone.
“Mandy Lingard, who was sunbathing in her back garden wearing just a thong, said she realised only when she saw an advertising board near her home.” Would turn into a liability or harrassment suit in the US. Wait for it.
Youtube: These Datsun 240Zs Are Animals to Drive.
*Sniff*. I miss my old 240Z.
Mashable: New York advice from people who are not Taylor Swift.
I do so miss the wonderful variety of NY accents.
EOSHD: Apple kill third party SSD support in Yosemite.
“The problem is down to Apple having introduced a new ‘security feature’ in Yosemite. Only kext drivers for official Apple SSDs are supported. Built in drives that Apple themselves use in your Macbook Pro Retina and some iMacs will upgrade just fine to Yosemite but if you have installed a third party SSD or more commonly are running off an external one, you’re out of luck.” Beware, beware.
Vimeo: Kanban - isn‘t it just common sense?
Wonderful stuff within.
