I’ll be the first to say that when I first saw these on a colleague’s camera I chuckled a bit. Then I had the opportunity to try them so I did, expecting to continue thinking them a bit silly. Once I used them I promptly ordered 2 more sets because I found that they improved my shooting experience even enhancing it when it came to finding the video button. Take a peak and if you like what you see and hear, here’s a link to my source for them:
Silly or not, here come the ProDots! http://www.customslr.com/products/prodot
After 20+ years in a computer tech job, Carol Schlintz is enjoying a second and more fulfilling career as a portrait and sports photographer in suburban Milwaukee. Like many of us, she has met with some personal challenges and is in need of reducing the physical strain from carrying heavy pro cameras and lenses around. Not one to take "no" for an answer, she jumped in with both feet and no safety net.
As of April 2012 Carol has retired her big DSLR's and picked up a couple of small, light mirrorless cameras and is now using them on every shoot. Vlogging here on discovermirrorless, as well as sharing and swapping ideas with the other Hybrid Heroes (and the viewers!) is part of her process of evolving from a still photo only photographer into a photo+video+audio hybrid image maker. Count on Carol to share what works, what doesn't, and all the steps in becoming Milwaukees first hybrid photography studio that specializes in making and selling eProducts.
