Fake Canon LP E8 Battery Tear Down – Sold as genuine, but it’s counterfeit

Fake Canon LP E8 Battery Tear Down – Sold as genuine, but it’s counterfeit!

Purchased from ebay and sold as a ‘genuine original’ Canon battery. It had all the packaging, hologram and looks of the genuine but there were a few differences!
Sold for about £15, and it did turn out to be too good to be true.

Canon sell this battery on their website for around £45.

Both Canon USA and Canon Europe confirmed it was counterfeit and I got a full refund.

Let’s open it up to see what is inside!

Nikon D3X FX Versus Canon EOS 5D Mark II – A Comparative Review

Nikon D3X FX Versus Canon EOS 5D Mark II – A Comparative Review

If there is a “horsepower” race going on in the camera world, it has to be between Nikon and Canon as each one tries to outdo the other (and Sony, for that matter) with the mind-boggling numbers that each is capable of.

Nikon probably though it had the race won with the introduction of the D3 body which is a good body that delivers excellent low-light performance and good performance under just about any adverse condition you can think of – low light, backlight, bright light, night light, handheld and the like – but it may not have been watching its rearview because it cannot have expected Canon to have waited around with its older EOS D1 MarkIII body because Canon has just passed Nikon in many areas.

Let’s face it, the X model of the D3 or the Nikon D3X has a huge resolution of 24.5MP, but in FX mode – 39 by 24 mm – and while it can shoot at up to 5 fps it just doesn’t seem to have the handheld versatility of the new Canon EOS 5D Mark II.

How To Use Self Timer – DSLR Tips

Visit http://thepodcastersstudio.com/gear to see and read about all the gear used in this video.

If you’re new to the Canon 70D DSLR or just new to shooting video with DSLR’s this tutorial will help you learn how to setup your Canon DSLR to shoot high quality video.

Shown here, the 70D has a few specific features that are a nice upgrade from the Canon 60D such as a touchscreen, great auto focus system, audio meters viewable while recording and white balance shift. Learn how to setup these new features as well as the core settings for shooting with any video camera set to manual control.

Start by putting your camera in manual so that you have the ability to control all the settings. Record in 1080p at 24fps with a shutter speed of 1/50. Leave these settings like this for your entire shoot.

Use the aperture and ISO controls to get the proper exposure for whatever environment you are filming in. The larger your aperture, the more light you can get into your camera and thus the less you’ll need to increase your ISO which will create some noise in your image once you get to a large enough number. My favorite ISOs are 160, 320, 640 and I try to adjust my settings to remain at these numbers at all times for the cleanest image possible.
