Sunday tidbits (news etc)

by planetmitch1 Comment

I've been darn busy with a bunch of things (including our house remodel which is taking twice as long as we expected) and I've found quite a few things to post, but I just haven't made the time to post them. So, I thought I'd just gather a bunch of them in a single post (like I used to do when the planet5D wiki first started).

Scott Bourne has a really good article “Why Nikon as Video Cam Doesn’t Stand Up to Canon as Video Cam.”

Delkin Dual Battery Capability: Charge two batteries at the same time on the same charger without increasing the charge time for either battery.

No more waiting around until your first battery charge is complete before plugging in your backup! (Buy at Amazon)
