    This was a concern for me as well when I first received SmallRig's GH5 cage, as all of the other cages I use mount to the hot shoe as well. However, the base of SmallRig's cage has a couple "blocks"...

    It doesn't matter what an external recorder supports, the GH4 outputs footage at the base frame rate over HDMI when shooting VFR. For example, if you're shooting FHD 23.98fps w/VFR @ 96fps, the HDMI...

    I haven't tested the N8 yet, but Benro's BV4 head is probably the best sub-$800 head I've used. 6 step counterbalance, 4 step pan/tilt drag for smooth and controlled moves, illuminated level, and it...

    Why not both? Benro's S4 monopod has a smooth articulating foot and a fully-fledged fluid video head that can pan and tilt, unlike Manfrotto's video monopod (which cannot pan, nor can it be removed).
