Sony NEX-VG10 Interchangeable Lens Handycam

The Sony NEX-VG10 Interchangeable Lens Handycam is the first-ever large sensor video camera, merging the rich colors, enhanced light sensitivity, and shallow depth-of-field of video DSLRs with the shape, size, and functionality of a camcorder. That means no more rigging out your video-enabled DSLR with accessories that cost twice as much as the camera--and no more funneling your video through the tiny sensors and fixed lenses of camcorders past.

PadCaster - Perfect for Capturing Video using your Apple iPad 2, 3 or 4

The Padcaster is a very clever device that makes it easier to capture high quality video and audio with your iPad. Holding an iPad straight out with your arms is a trying task - it is very difficult to keep the iPad at the right angle - it is even more difficult to keep it steady. A cool device like the PadCaster makes it much more convenient. Even better, by using the Padcaster, you can connect a variety of accessories to your iPad and even lock it down onto a tripod or other types of camera support systems.

Teradek Bolt: Wireless 1080/60p Transmitters and Receivers

The Teradek Bolt is a wireless transmitting system for HD video signals and its primary utility lies in configuring a convenient and efficient, on-set monitoring scheme, such as a video village. As many of you may know, the term “video village” derives from a common phenomenon on film sets, which is precipitated by a monitor’s ability to attract a sizable population of curious onlookers. This is where the Bolt comes in. Teradek’s Bolt can wirelessly transmit a 4:2:2, 1080/60p video signal up to 300 feet with no frame delay, which means that all of the noises and distractions inherent to a video village can be located a suitable distance from the action.
