Laforet Black Walnut Handgrips   Mfr. Site

Comments: This is the first "accessory" I’ve ever put my name to.  Ever since I started in cinema I wanted to have one of these wooden handles to bring the mass of accessories latched onto my DSLR back to a more "natural" place.  Aaton camera had these grips and I think we all have always secretly lusted for them… when I was sked if I was interested i making a series I didn’t hesitate to say yes.   These are made by hand by and wood artisan – definitely not a mass produced accessory.

  1×1 LED   Mfr. Site

Comments: This is the best value you will find out there in terms of price – it’s 40% cheaper than the competition, 40% brighter and is significantly more color accurate.  Sound too good to be true?  It’s really not.   This is the next generation of LED lighting and is lighter, has more mounting points, can switch from daylight to tungsten or anywhere in between instantly and even has a handle in the back.
