Just like in the photography world, the video world has a TON of plugins and stock special effects that you can purchase and use with your non-linear editing program.

TriPad

TriPad is a simple, yet innovative computer table that fits over your tripod. It’s made in the U.S.A. of high-tensile-strength polymer, ships in two pieces, and is easy to assemble and use.

Zoom H4N Audio Recorder

Zoom’s top-of-the-line H4n is a 4-channel handheld audio recorder that can record to 24-bit/96-kHz WAV files in stereo mode. In 4-channel mode, the recorder tops at 24-bit/48-kHz, which equals DVD audio quality.

Epson Artisan 1430 Printer

The Artisan1430 is Epson’s impressive, entry-level, tabloid-size (13x19inch), desktop printer. The low-cost 1430, which comes with a free copy of Adobe Elements, is aimed at photographers who are on a budget but still demand consistent, professional-quality, large prints.

Film Stocks v1

With its advanced masking capabilities, layers with blend modes, histogram, and more than 60 adjustment parameters, the Film Stocks plug-in looks more like a complete image editor than a film simulation filter.

Spyder4Elite

How you evaluate and adjust your image files is based upon what you see on your display. If the display isn’t calibrated and profiled, you can’t trust what you’re seeing onscreen. Aimed at professionals, the new, redesigned Spyder4Elite colorimeter and software calibrates displays and projectors. Its ease of use and precise results are impressive.

Designed specifically for professionals in the graphics, photography, video, and CAD industries, the Z1 sports a beautiful 27″, billion-color display with a maximum resolution of 2560×1440. Touchscreen capability would complete the display nicely.
