Tom Buck, one of our CPW readers, put together a great (unsponsored) review video of the Canon Price Watch street price program on his Youtube channel The Enthusiasm Project.

Thank you, Tom, for sharing your story, and we’re glad you had such a positive experience!

If you haven’t checked out The Enthusiasm Project yet, we recommend you do so. Tom is a high school digital media teacher, and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed his weekly posts about videography, gear reviews, and his occasional posts on the life of being a teacher.

His reviews include the EOS R vs. the 6D Mark II and the Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 vs. f/4. He also has the coolest hand-drawn video thumbnails — check out Tom’s channel and don’t forget to subscribe.

Kickstarter: Pinhole Pro X 40-58mm Lens for Canon, $69


As seen on Kickstarter: a camera lens without glass? Thingyfy launched a new Kickstarter campaign for their latest creation, the Pinhole Pro X — a zoom pinhole lens with no optics at all. Seven mounts are available, including DSLR (Canon EF) and mirrorless mounts. An astounding 3200 backers have already pledged over $350,000 to support this project!

Check out the sample videos on their Kickstarter page — photos and videos with these pinhole lenses have a charming, raw, naturally vintage look. There’s something interesting about combining the latest in cutting-edge high-ISO sensor technology with the oldest lens technology. Although pinhole cameras have been around for ages, the manufacturing techniques they’ve used to perfect the lens are quite involved. Check out their campaign page for more.

For a limited time, you can get a 30% super-early bird discount on the new Pinhole Pro X ($69) or on their previously released Pinhole Pro S ($41) and Pinhole Pro ($55) lenses. Pledge $99 to get Pinhole Pro X plus accessories, or $165 to get all 3 lenses with an expected ship date of November 2019.

Kickstarter: Versatile and Durable Lumin8 LED Light from $129


Another interesting project seen on Kickstarter is the Lumin8 LED light. Sure, we’ve seen many LED light sticks but what’s impressive about this one is its durability, water resistance, and remote control, all while outputting 1000 lumen with a 95+ CRI.

Their Kickstarter campaign shows videos of their lights getting run over by cars, smashed with hammers, and thrown into buckets of water. We don’t plan on abusing our lights, but it’s good to know they’ll survive an accident. Their wireless remote control looks rather nifty too!

You can pledge $129 towards this campaign to get a special early-bird price with expected delivery of November. So far, nearly 300 backers have pledged over $50,000 towards making this project a reality!
