Pre-blog: Gorillapod

Although it won't replace a full-size tripod... the Gorillapod allows you to use whatever it can grab hold of as a tripod. It's very light, and easy to carry. It comees in 3 variants, the original, SLR, and the SLR-ZOOM (holds cameras up to 3kgs)

...yes, that's my cam taking a self-portrait of itself... hahahaha...

Pre-blog: Boom! Boom! Boom!

Very, very useful studio boom.

Quite compact when collapsed... it can be raised up to a height of 8' while the boom arm reaches 7'.

Collapses quite quickly and very easy to roll around.

It is very heavy though, but required to make it stable when fully extended.

Made by Quiklok, it's solidly built, and well engineered.

Pre-blog: Speak Into The Mic Please!

I originally purchased a pair of Shure KSM109s... which BOTH turned out to be defective... since there were no more KSM109s in stock, I opted to try out an Audio Technica AT3032. Slightly more expensive than the Shure's I originally purchased, but more than worth it!

Transient response is much better as is frequency response! The KSMs had a slight bass roll-off, the ATs don't. ATs also capture highs much better than the 109s did (when they weren't crackling)

I do wish I had a chance to try the KSMs in their full working glory... but I'm glad I gave the Audio Technicas a chance.
