This section exists to tell our readers about any type of tangible gear or hardware that affects the creation or the display of electronic media in its many forms. We will be reviewing anything from smartphones to 8k monitors. DSLR cameras, camcorders, lenses, lighting and camera rigs. Computers, media storage solutions, media furniture, tripods and other stuff to help you make movies or to just gawk at because you can’t afford it anyway, but you need to know about it.

All this to help our readers become knowledgeable and even experts on hardware they own or are considering purchasing in the future.

CES 2016: Media Content Creators Highlights

CES 2016
CES 2016: Media Content Creators Highlights CES 2016 was full of both meaningful and meaningless technology, so I attempted to compile things that had the most significance for media content creators.
