Who Are we?
’m George Margolin, former Technical Editor of Popular Photography
Magazine and a professional photojournalist and Inventor since slightly
before LIGHT was invented. I have 27 patents, but who is
Here is one of my latest Inventions- Video Visor!
It was that terrible Bright Sunlight washing
out my ability to SEE the tiny image on those Wing Type finders on the
new Camcorders, that was my MOTHER OF INVENTION. Shooting blind is not
the way to make good movies or stills.
designed the “Video Visor” to provide a fast on/off , Eye Level
Viewfinder that was also an instant sunshade and magnifier (4x) to allow
tracking fast moving sports like Soccer, Football and the like while
giving you almost tripod-steady stability.

WOULDN’T IT BE NICE?
Wouldn’t it be nice, when you’re
outside trying to take pictures or videos, if you could SEE what’s on the screen
of your new little pocket Point&Shoot camera. And/or your shiny new Camcorder
that has that clever little wing-type flat viewfinder hanging out there in the
breeze and the sun. But it’s being so overwhelmed by the bright sun when you’re
TRYING to catch a picture of your little kids or grandkids or basketball or
football or SOCCER guys whizzing around their various fields?
Yup – it WOULD be nice-- but the laws
of nature, sports, optics and eyeballs -- have lost out to the market laws that
tell manufacturers that IF they can con-vince the public to buy
photographic devices that provide only the smallest screens that are ALMOST
ALWAYS invisible in the blasting sun of the great outdoors. You know, the places
where you want to take many if not most of the pictures of your sports and
family and vacations. You won’t see Pro Photogs struggling to take pictures with
these clever devices because the human eye needs about 14 or more inches to
focus on the little screens on these devices, forgetting about the fact that
they’re wobbling around and their images are WASHED OUT BY THE SUN.
THAT is why Pros use Eye-Level
Finders. Remember that Pros can’t make a living making excuses for missing their
important shots. They MUST deliver. So they use cameras, that allow them to
SOLIDLY HOLD their often thousands of dollars worth of Canons and Nikons and
Sony’s and Panasonics and other high quality PROFESSIONAL cameras.
For pros – their cameras have to work
every time under every kinds of condition. So, unless you are one of those big
time photo aficionados and buckaroos who truck around their heavy multi-hundreds
and even multi-THOUSANDS of dollar Canons (the photo shooting kinds, not the
SHOOTING kinds that go BOOM,BOOM in the night). And Nikons and Sonys and
Panasonics and the rest the increasingly marvelous picture taking tools that can
photograph a black cat in a coal mine during a total eclipse of the sun? And
that might be able to stop a speeding bullet just before it hits you? Well we
all know that it doesn’t REALLY stop the bullet, but when your family looks at
your nice pictures at your funeral – it REALLY does look like the bullet stopped
before it whacked you.
So if you’re not one of those really
dedicated photographers – like I USED to be, since I was the Technical Editor of
Popular Photography Magazine – I’ve invented and am bringing out a product that
for probably UNDER fifty bucks, which will turn the large majority of the
wonderful small and competent Camcorders, Point&shoots AND SMART PHONES -- LIKE
the iPhone® and the brilliant Androids that nearly EVERYONE and their kids use
--which have now become the drug-free object of OUR photographic addiction.
Are these inexpensive small cameras as
good as the big iron expensive and competent monsters that pros and prosumers
use? Not really, but in the hands of talented photographers – if you had to
judge by just looking at the pictures that they produced – it might be virtually
IMPOSSIBLE TO KNOW!
And remember – you can only capture
pictures, good or bad – IF you have a camera with you when you want to take a
picture. So a small camera that is WITH you, when the photographic opportunity
happens – IS the one that will capture the picture.
Because of my profession, I’ve spent
my life carrying big professional cameras (they used to be 4X5 Speed Graphics.)
But now – I generally carry a pocket camera – slightly more than a Point&Shoot
and often a small but high quality Video camera that isn’t made anymore, but it
produces the best high quality videos I could find. And NOW – I also ALWAYS
carry an iPhone® and using one of my other exclusive products – the SteadySnake
Neck-Pod – often with an iPad® mounted on it.
This Camera/Computer/picture viewer
--- is what I call the replacement of the Polaroid Instant camera – because it
takes EXCELLENT photographs and is the best friend-maker in the world! HOW? –
when I meet people that interest me – important or otherwise – I shoot a quick
portrait with the iPad® and show it to them on the big screen -- INSTANTLY!
You’d be AMAZED at how effective this is. And I can send the file to them “Post
Haste” – love that old phrase because today it REALLY IS Post Haste!
Not only will my new attachable
MARGOLIN Magnifying Eye Level Viewfinder tame the sun, but it will GREATLY
reduce the jitter, bob and weave and shake of your pictures and videos and
improve your ability to track action and let you compose your pictures WHILE
you’re shooting them.
My new virtually
Universal Eye Level Viewfinder
attachment gives you back THE way to avoid camera shake and the blurred pictures
it causes, It also gives you a magnified steady view of moving subjects to let
you track them and capture the missed pictures of today’s camcorders and pocket
cameras. That’s because it lets you HOLD your hard-to-hold tiny, almost
weightless Midget Cameras and Photo Phones, with TWO (count them 2) hands. With
my attached Eye Level Magnified Viewfinder you WILL be able to stop and catch
running children, rushing Quarterbacks and flying Soccer scorers in their tracks
and into your digital devices.
