I received my nifty little Steadicam Smoothee just before the recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. While I didn’t have much time to do anything terribly involved I did manage to get out and shoot a couple of short samples. Check ‘em out! Although they make a really cool little adapter for the iPhone, both of these were captured with a GoPro Hero. The suggested retail for the Smoothee is $179.99 but I’ve encountered a street price of $149.99 on www.bhphotovideo.com.
I’ve already posted information about how to join me this spring for an EOS Destination Workshop in beautiful Sedona, Arizona, but there are another couple of opportunities that I failed to mention. My Bad! In September, I’ll take my show on the road for two one-day workshops in equally spectacular Jackson Hole Wyoming. I like to pop into Jackson right when the aspen trees are changing color and I always make a point of hiring some great looking cowboys or cowgirls to pepper into the landscape...
Here’s some recently edited video I captured while teaching and directing our on-camera talent during a multi-day workshop I hosted in the same general area.

Gosh, I sure had a blast shooting with the new Canon Cinema EOS C300 last week. The camera arrived just before Christmas Eve and while I had an evening to test it under "Exterior - Night" conditions, I never saw the first lick of flame 'til the proverbial "Take One". That said, I’m very pleased with the my brief fling with this landmark Canon camera and I hope you enjoy viewing this little passion play as much as we enjoyed creating it...
Well, I recently returned from an exciting expedition with a great team of overland adventurers and am happy to report that I remain unbroken and very much alive, much to my surprise. Credit (or blame) for this Old Geezer’s survival rests entirely with Scott Brady, the Publisher of the oh-so-excellent Overland Journal magazine and our incredibly patient and nurturing lead climber, Cam Brensinger, Founder and Senior Designer of Nemo Equipment.
