Octagon Softbox for Portable Speedlite Flash
October 23, 2011


Tweet

Apollo Orb Softbox
I enjoy shooting with small flashes because it’s just easier to travel with and set up. I can practically pull a three piece lighting kit out of a backpack. The problem you’ll run into with small flashes is trying to diffuse it with light modifiers. Softboxes are a popular choice for portrait [...]

The different options screw in through standard ‘1/4-20 threaded inserts’. This particular flexible tripod is good for cameras weighing under 3lbs (lightweight cameras), or [...]

Lytro Camera Shoot Now Focus Later
October 20, 2011


Tweet

The Lytro that everyone has been talking about which works much differently than traditional cameras, captures the light field, so you can shift your shallow depth of field focus after you’ve snapped a pic. If every photo camera worked in this manner, there wouldn’t be such a thing as ‘out of focus images’. With such [...]

Linco Flora CFL Light with Remote
October 9, 2011


Tweet

Linco is showing off a new light head that can be turned on/off with an included remote. The only problem is that from the specs, each head is linked to it’s own remote. If you’re running a few of these in studio, I can see how carrying a pocket full of remotes can get ugly [...]

Sony HX9V on Palo Alto
August 17, 2011


Tweet

I know I must have looked like a complete idiot spinning around with a Painters Pole, but the real reason the HX9V is placed on top is for Pole Aerial Photography. Here’s a few samples of today’s P.A.P. as I follow along to annoy Olivia during her recent shoot. You can see my shadow on [...]

A Quick Release Shoulder Strap
August 16, 2011


Tweet

If you’re like me, I have no straps mounted on my camera. Not always ideal, so here’s something a friend showed me. This is a Calumet Aircell Neoprene quick strap. Not only comfortable, flexible, and padded, but it allows you to quickly remove the strap when it’s not needed. A good thing for people who [...]

Yongnuo RF-603 Unboxing and Demo
August 2, 2011


Tweet

Jonathan writes in and shares his Yongnuo RF-603 unboxing with a quick demo. The RF-603 is an upgrade from the previous RF-602 model. A single RF-603 can act both as a transmitter and receiver, as to where the 602 were actual separate units. This is definitely more convenient and also changes the required batteries to [...]

Lexar 16GB and 32GB SDHC Class 10
August 1, 2011


Tweet
I’ve lined my bag up with the Transcend 32GB SDHC Class 10 media cards because it was both cheap and reliable. I’ve had no issues and placed a few re-orders since. For many others it’s important to go with a brand name like Sandisk or Lexar. Now with Lexar’s Class 10 SDHC card (you need [...]

2D Photography Rube Goldberg
July 11, 2011


Tweet

Gotta give credit where credit is due. According to Wikipedia, a Rube Goldberg machine, device, or apparatus is a deliberately over-engineered machine that performs a very simple task in a very complex fashion, usually including a chain reaction. The expression is named after American cartoonist and inventor Rube Goldberg. Here’s a very clever photography ‘gear’ [...]

July 9, 2011


Tweet

Sweet little setup by Vimeo member kaydawgy shows a triple flash bracket with Yongnuo Speedlites and Yongnuo RF602 wireless flash triggers. As mentioned in the video, instead of using a single flash at full power, you can use several flashes at low power. This will give you faster recycle times and a broad light source [...]

Delkin (minor) Upgrade SensorScope Cleaning Kit
July 8, 2011


Tweet

You’ve spent hours traveling to a location, unpack your gear, and build your set. You’ve got a few hundred to a few thousand dollars of equipment, crew, and talent waiting around, and then a tiny tiny spec of dust on your sensor puts your entire project to a halt. Scary right? There’s always that possibility. [...]

Canon 60D T3i LCD ViewFinder – No Sticky
June 29, 2011


Tweet

A look at how the latest version CarrySpeed VFinder attaches to a Canon 60D with that swivel out screen. Right off the bat the metal frames might not line up perfectly, but they are easy to bend into position. If you want something super secure, I say permanently glue the sucker to the metal QR [...]

Amazing deals on Sandisk media that’s hard to resist. In fact, the price break brings the super high speed, undoubtably reliable Sandisk media smack down in Transcend price territory. We’re talking about 400x on CF and Class 10 on SDHC media. Sandisk media is often counterfeited, so watch out for things that look too good [...]

Sandisk SDHC Class 10 Media Cards
June 20, 2011


Tweet
Some people swear by shooting only cards that are 8GB in capacity Max. I shoot with 32GB cards, call me a Danger Seeker. Some people shoot only Sandisk media. I personally shoot with the Transcend Class 10 or 400x Media Cards.
Regardless of anyone’s rhyme or reason you can grab a Sandisk 8GB SDHC Class 10 [...]
