A few weeks ago, we got a copy of the onOne DSLR Camera Remote for iPad and let me say right off the bat it is pretty cool – not perfect, but still cool. We decided the best way to produce a review was to record a podcast – and the video below was entirely [...]

People keep asking about what we know about new Canon HD-DSLRs (also known as HDSLRs and by many “DSLR video cameras”) like the Canon EOS 5D Mark III that might be coming down the line… well, at this point, planet5D doesn’t know much – we’re not in the NDA list so we’re not getting any [...]

Apple updates camera RAW – adds support for the Canon Rebel T3i/600D and T3 – fixes Panasonic GH2 support – Not huge news, but a bit surprising because normally, the software vendors like Apple don’t have the OS fixes until AFTER the cameras are on the street – causing frustration for folks who have the [...]

The 5D Mark II Team posted this tutorial from Robino Films showing how to use stills to create simple matte painting effects for your DSLR footage and we were very interested – so of course we thank them for posting and we’ll share it with you. I’m always fascinated with the BTS in the special [...]

We found Rod Guajardo talking about his CowboyStudio Shoulder Rig (planet5D reviews) on twitter this morning and watched the video and knew many of you would be interested in it so we asked Ron if we could share with you. He started with a review posted on his blog here and finished it up with [...]

Canon announced two new cameras today – the Rebel EOS T3i / 600D / Kiss X5 and the Rebel T3 / 1100D / Kiss X50 – we’ll publish two stories because they are different and might attract different readers… but we’ll also cover the similarities in one comprehensive post that will include more details.
