When creating video content, it’s important to know some rules to make your shoot goes smoothly and looks great. Fundamentals such as the rule of thirds, and the 180° rule are essential to understanding how to shoot better looking video. As you grow, you can always look back at these ideas and build from there.
B&H carries all the gear you need to create high quality videos.
NEW Flex LED light panels The Flex lighting system is at the cuttingedge of LED light technology. Pliable, weatherresistant and dimmable the Flex LED panels produce an outstanding, consistent and flickerfree light that is ideal for filmmakers and photographers. Their lightweight and 1/4” thin moldable framework allows you to shape the light in unique ways, delivering up to a 360-degree spread of light. Flex LED panels can also be paired with the Scrim Jim Cine modular frame system to provide a powerful, adaptable and professional lighting setup for any situation. Available in Daylight (5600K) and BiColour (2800K 6000K) options, and in a range of sizes from 10”x3” to 2’ x2’, Westcott has the widest range of sizes. As the Flex LED light panels can be rolled or folded they are highly portable for easy and lightweight travel.
NEW Scrim Jim Cine System Scrim Jim Cine is an ultralight modular frame system that allows you to shape, block and modify light with more control than ever before. The anodised aluminium framework can be easily assembled mounted and skinned to light any situation. The wide variety of selflocking connecting pieces allows for any number of frame configurations such as booklights, diffusion boxes, floppy cutters and more and the builtin 3/816 thread makes mounting the frames quick and easy. Combined with a large variety of Diffusion and Grid cloths and a range of bounce fabrics, plus compatibility with the Westcott Flex LED Panel range, nothing gives you more control over your lighting than the Scrim Jim Cine modular system.

Protecting your gear in adverse conditions is certainly advisable, no matter what kind of weather resistance your gear is advertised as featuring. Gear protection can range from Bryan's favorite cheap accessory to the rain covers mentioned above and everywhere in between. I recently used an OP/TECH USA 8" Small Rain Sleeve to protect my EOS 7D Mark II and EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM while photographing dirt track racing a little more than a week ago. The relatively inexpensive bags featuring a draw string closure proved invaluable for keeping fine dust from getting all over my camera gear. [Sean]
Note: The printer comes bundled with Canon Photo Paper which qualifies it for the $250.00 rebate. The retail price of the printer will drop to $299.00 with the promo code applied, making the final purchase total only $49.00 after rebate.
That works out to roughly $8.33 per month for Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC. For what it's worth, I consider the Creative Cloud Photography Plan to be the best $10.00 investment I make each month. [Sean]
