In Review: Atomos Ninja V with ZCam E2
I could not wait to get the Atomos Ninja V Recorder Monitor along with the Z CAM E2 out of the boxes and get this review underway. The Atomos Ninja V is way up there as one of the most popular and bestselling Recorder Monitors out there, and with good reason. But before I get to some of the specifications of the Atomos Ninja V, it just wouldn’t be fair if I didn’t talk about the features that made this review so much fun.

In Review: Panasonic AG-CX10
In Review: Panasonic AG-CX10
Over the last couple of years, I have been very fortunate to test and evaluate many different types of cameras. From full-size 8K to specialized miniature POV units putting different cameras to the test is always interesting and a lot of fun. In this review, we are going to be taking a look at the Panasonic AG-CX10. The AG-CX10 is said to be the little brother of the Panasonic AG-CX 350. In either case, both are excellent choices for people that need a good amount of features that allow for a quick start-up, getting the shots you need, then scramming out of harm's way. But before I get too deep there are a couple of the things I try to keep in mind when reviewing gear. Who is this camera for? What might they use it for? Will it be a good fit and a good return on investment?
