John Harrington-WHAT WE USE - Reviewing Kit

Thursday, January 24, 2008

Here's a video segment on the Reviewing Kit that we use. A transcription of the video is available after the jump.

Hands on instructional video on photography from Assignment Construct.

Hi, I’m John Harrington and we’re going to break out and break down the wide variety of equipment we use to deliver images to our clients. Next we are going to show you one of the equipment kits we use when we are traveling on assignment. Each kit is different and has a very specific purpose. So lets take a look.

One case that is really specialized is our reviewing kit.

In the reviewing kit we have a Sony wireless, battery powered monitor. It’s got an extra battery. I’m not sure if you can see this but we’re actually able to see image on the Sony Monitor. We’ve got an extra battery for that monitor.

We’ve got the Jobo Gigaview. This allows us to immediately back up the cards as we shoot them and it also can serve as a wireless receiver using this wireless card, this 802.11b card when we are shooting with Canon or Nikon wireless adaptors. We have those Canon and Nikon wireless adaptors also in here. Here’s the wireless adaptor for the Canon and the charger for the battery that goes in it. Here’s the wireless adaptor for the Nikon.

We can also shoot tethered. This is the tether cord for the new Nikon D3. This is the tether cord for the Canon 1DS Mark 2.

One of the really nice things we have is a video eye that attaches to the back of the camera.  It’s called a Zigview. This attaches to the eyepiece of the camera. This allows us to place the camera in a tight space or attach it to a long monopod from the side of building and still be able to see what we would see through the viewfinder.

We also have power adaptors for the Gigaview, battery chargers for the Canon, and we have other USB cords and fire wire cords tucked away here to connect items straight to the computer.

So that is our wireless reviewing kit.

Below the video is a link to each of the segments, Let me know what you think!
