Canon 7D II & 70D – Rumors

At last some updates for the Canon 7D, for me the 7D has been my favorite camera/DSLR period. Its simple enough that I can use it and complex enough that it can do so much. I especially love its video recording features and I hope they have upgraded it for this time around. There are two updates one is for the Canon 70D and the other is the 7D Mark II. I hope the changes for the 7D Mark II are so much that it makes it worth it for me to upgrade. I have had my camera since Dec of 2009 and I still think its fantastic, I just want more for the video features and I hope they deliver on it. For now these are just a few rumors, I’m hoping for more news soon, come on Canon make us happy.

Review: GorillaPod Gogo

I have been using the Gorilla Pod for the past couple of months now, around poles, around a car, and lots of odd situations. It is a high quality tripod with the a huge amount of articulation, and rubber ends which are perfect for any situation. The price of this tripod is relatively low for a good tripod, and you can pack it anywhere with you which is what you need from a tripod.

Recently they have been making some different Gorilla Pods for different pieces of electronics. Like the one for the PSP is great if you are just going to watch movies on it so you don’t have to hold it at a specific angle.

Gorillapod SLR

I have been looking for a suitable small and camera tripod that can be carried in  back pack without giving you too much pain after some time. After some search and recommendations I managed to find a Gorillapod on one of my quick trips. They had a normal one but after some searching we found the SLR version of the Gorillapod, which I think every photographer should have. It does look a bit strange but its extremely functional, can be used in different situations to get the perfect shot. It can be used both with an SLR and a normal camera because of the small adapter they have with it.
