The Korean company Motionnine is fairly new to the equipment market, but has come up with quite a few inventive camera accessory ideas. One of the newest gadgets they showed off at IBC 2015 is an affordable compact slider that we liked.
The new compact slider goes by the name Motionnine Single Linecam and is available with a length of 60 cm and 80 cm.
The slider has a break and simplistic dampening system that worked quite well when we tried it at the booth and will be available in October for $185.

We’ve reported about the Teradek cube before. It’s almost a “cube” with a hotshoe below it so you can mount it on your camera and stream hdmi directly to your iPad or another network capable device.
In this video the Cube people show how it works as a directors wireless field monitor. Great, and at $1199 a great affordable deal. However there is a lag, so you should be careful about using it as a monitoring device to control focus or your camera.
With the new firmware update the device now won’t cause trouble on hdmi switching cameras like the 5D or T2i.
This is the model you want to use with your iPad, but there are several other models which you can see here or on the Teradek Cube website itself.

Teradek wants you to beat up their wireless transmitter. They are looking for “Beta Testers” for the Cube™. This is a great way for the company to get real test results from the field. So many companies just put their equipment into the world without any real hardcore testing in the field. Teradek wants to get it right and this is your chance to help them. Here is a little quote from their site.
Teradek is looking for enthusiastic and experienced HD video users who are interested in participating in the development of this exciting new technology. Beta testers are an integral part of the development of Cube™, and your input will have a direct influence in the production Cube™. Beta testers are Teradek team members. You will receive your Cube™ at a deeply discounted price* to compensate for your efforts.
