Virtually all of the videos I shoot are recorded to an Atomos Ninja V — a 5-inch monitor/recorder from Australian-based company Atomos. The Ninja V is a product that Atomos fans have been waiting on for years, as it brings most of the features from its larger monitor lineup to a compact 5-inch form-factor that great for run-and–gun shooting.

One of the problems with transitioning to such a company device is that there’s a lot less room for necessary accessories like SSD caddies. Atomos’ MasterCaddy II, caddies intended for the company’s larger recorders, work with the Atomos Ninja V, but are obviously not designed with the smaller recorder in mind.

Enter the SSDmini from Sony — a smaller form-factor drive created in partnership with Atomos specifically for its smaller recorder. Watch our hands-on video walkthrough for a look at some of the SSDmini’s benefits. expand full story

This is a big week for Canon fans and camera enthusiasts everywhere. Canon has announced two ultra-high-resolution premium full-frame DSLRs, two powerful entry-level DSLRs, and two pocket-sized zoom cameras, all of which are now available for preorder. Since their release dates are staggered across Spring, and demand is likely to be high, this is a great time to get in line for these big releases. What’s new?

The Canon EOS 5DS ($3,699) and EOS 5DS R ($3,899) are the world’s highest-megapixel full-frame cameras, each with a brand-new 50.6-Megapixel sensor. Optimized for commercial, studio, portrait, landscape and architectural photography, these DSLRs capture over twice the detail of the already amazing 5D Mark 3, shooting at up to 5FPS and using advanced autofocus and image stabilization systems to capture fine detail. The R version eliminates the low-pass filter found in Canon’s other cameras, increasing image sharpness for natural and architectural images. Ritz Camera is offering preorders of the 5DS here and the 5DS R here for June delivery. There are also new entry-level DSLRs and pocket cameras to check out below the fold…
