Manfrotto 577 Adapter (501PL) & Vello V-Rig Bracket Reviews

1. Manfrotto 577 rapid connect adapter with sliding mounting plate (501):

In this video the Manfrotto 577 Video Adapter Plate is reviewed highlighting two issues regarding the 577’s glitchy safety catch and dysfunctional lever.

2. Vello Tripple Shoe Bracket (V-Rig):

The Vello V-Rig Tripple Shoe Brackets is also discussed which comes in 4.1, 5 and 6.5 inch sizes.

The V-Rig provides three additional shoe mounts and is attached to a camera’s existing shoe mount.

The V-Rig has a 1/4″-20 mount as well at its base. It also has built-in backstops for secure mounting and is made of machined aluminum-alloy construction.

An issue I felt could be a problem with the V-Rig is the restricted use of the center shoe.

Because it is in the middle portion of the “Y” of the bracket, the space can tight when trying to fit a device on this middle shoe.

A Video Mic just fit when mounted on the middle shoe. In addition, after mouting a device on the middle shoe, this completely takes up the inside space a device can use when mounted on the lower outer shoe.

Another issue related to the middle shoe there is no sideways space inward from the lower outside shoe. This means only outward facing devices can be used.

Otterbox Defender Case iPad Air vs iPad Air 2 Review

The Otterbox made a stark change to their Otterbox Defender Case series for the iPad Air 2 as compared with their previous version of the same case for the previous iPad model, the iPad Air.

This review takes a look at the flawed design change which reduced the ability of the Otterbox Defender Case for the iPad Air 2 to perform as well as Otterbox’s previous model of the same case for the iPad Air.

Prospective customers should be made aware of Otterbox’s modification to their case before buying the case for the iPad Air 2.

Description:
This video basically shows how easy it is to install/setup or plug-n-play an Apple Magic Trackpad to a MacBook Pro 15.4 notebook.

Quick Review:

The Apple Magic Trackpad is very slick and smooth.

The batteries are included in the box, and all you have to do is activate the search for discoverable Bluetooth devices button and turn on the trackpad and it gets discovered by the Mac computer.

Not all the features will work if your running Windows under Parallels or Bootcamp, though some will. The pinch to zoom, etc,  doesn’t work in Windows either. Also the performance is a bit clunky as compare to when the trackpad is used under the Mac OSx environment.

Please use the links in this description to purchase, or get more details on the products used in the video to help support my efforts to make these reviews.
