The WORST Smelling Sniff Test EVER but an Awesome product – Tenba Air Case

Jared Polin November 5, 2014 Comments Off

Have you ever wondered how you travel the world or ship an Apple Imac for jobs? Well, a company called Tenba has created the Air Case specifically for shipping Imacs or checking it under an airplane.

I have to thank Postman FRO for bringing me this Air Case because it will set you back around $650!!! You may think that’s expensive, it is but the problem it solves for many working pros is well worth the price.

DigiRichie travels a few times a month and instead of renting Imacs on set he simply travels with them. The issue has always been how do you take in on a plane with you and keep it safe. You can’t cary it on because it’s to big but you can certainly check it. Normally I would be worried to check an Imac but this case is built like a tank. In fact you can stack almost 600 pounds on it and it still will be fine.

DigiRichie will have a full on review of this bag on one of his upcoming episodes since he has taken it cross country and back a few times.

I really like their entire lineup of high end PRO Air Cases. For more info about Tenba click here.

Oh Boy, the Canon 7D Mark II handles Hi-ISO Like a CHAMP!!! Test Photos and Video

Jared Polin November 4, 2014 Comments Off

This is a PRE Review of the Canon 7d mark II. The “Real World” review is on it’s way and will be to you very very soon.

I just took the camera out for its first spin at a Pete Yorn concert. This was a good show for me to test ISO for stills and video since he wouldn’t be moving to much around the show. If you haven’t given Pete a listen in a while or ever I suggest you dial up the good old spotify or check him out in concert.

The samples images that I am sharing first show ISO 12,800 and 16,000. The 12,800 looks to be pretty solid for a cropped sensor camera. The 16,000 on the other hand is a little mushy but again it’s 16,000 on a cropped sensor it’s totally acceptable.

Shooting the video at 16,000 also left me pretty pleased with the results. It’s not every day you shoot video at such a high iso and come out with very usable footage.

Like I said, this is a pre review and just some quick first thoughts that I wanted to share.
