Ok, so I've owned my share of sling straps and while I definitely have my favorites, there have been quite a few issues that none of these straps solve. My personal biggest issues have been ability (or lack of) to attach a tripod mount, lack of 1/4 20 thread mount, and the ergonomics issue when using a grip in portrait.
The CAMS Pro Sling Strap aims to fix all of these issues and more. Check them out right now.
Sony has just announced the new Sony Alpha A5100 for $549 (body only) and $699 with the 16-50mm f3.5-5.6 lens. This camera brings the awesome Sony 24mp sensor with an APS-C e mount which is sure to yield some of the best quality available of any camera in this category. With an even smaller body (due to no EVF) and faster AF, the Sony is definitely a camera that should be on your want list.

The Sigma dp2 Quattro, while much better than the previous model, is still a very particular camera. However, if you love prints and don't mind a bit longer workflow, The dp2 provides amazing detail for a reasonable $999 price.

The GH4 is an awesome camera by itself but adding a Metabones speedbooster with the Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 lens turns the GH4 into a full frame equivalent of a f2.8 zoom offering shallow depth of field as well as great low light performance from this smaller sensor camera. Take a look to see how it is done and if it is worth it.
Purchase the Metabones:

Canon EF to Micro 43
Both the A7s and 5D are a combination of photography and video cameras, but Sony definitively launched the A7s to appeal more to video while the 5D is still largely a photographer's camera. So in one sense it’s a bit unfair to go with this comparison because the 5D Mark III is a phenomenal still camera and is definitely the camera I’ll take for my wedding photography jobs, that said, there are quite a few videographers using the 5D Mark III for video, including me and so this comparison is for us.
Two brand new video cameras with different strengths going head to head is always a ton of fun. Not quite as fun as having to make the decision of which one of these cameras to purchase. We all know by now that nothing beats the A7s in low light and the 4k in camera shooting of the GH4 definitely has it’s advantages. So which one of these cameras should take its place in your camera bag, let’s find out in this review.
The Sony A7s brings the awesome capabilities of the original A7 and combines them with a new 12mp sensor making it a low light king, a ton of video features such as zebras and peaking, and records it all internally at up to 60fps @ 1080p internally or 4k and 30fps using an external recorder through the HDMI port. But is that enough to keep it alive as the competition increases in this video segment? Check out the full review after the break.
Purchase the Sony A7S
Either way this is a great video camera especially when you need tons of dynamic range for one crazy price! Better snap these up quick.
