Right before Christmas a sale popped up for the FitBit Flex (a fitness tracker) and even though I didn’t “need” it, the FitBit would help me stay in shape. So of course I bought it. Over the last couple of months I have been making a conscience effort to make sure I am active. I love seeing how different activities affect my daily step count and, well, shooting a wedding sure does.
I love photo books but you’ll rarely catch me with my nose inside a book by a photographer. Then there are short bursts of frenetic reading interspersed throughout the literary vacuum. So when I’m trying to desperately get advanced copies of a 700-page book written by a photographer, something weird is going on. [more]
Last month we posted an article about a unique LED lighting solution called “Strahlen” that was crowdfunding. On paper, the specs of these lights look great, but how well do they perform in a real production setting? I got my hands on a kit of Strahlens, and after an interview shoot with them I found out that they were the real deal. [more]
Flashpoint’s 14” Fluorescent Dimmable Ring Light ($140) is by no means a perfect product. It’s not the sturdiest of creations; it seems to have about as much metal in it as a pair of sunglasses. It’s bright but not powerful; bright enough to want those sunglasses if you find yourself on the business end. With all that said, this light may be the best value in the lighting market today.

When was the last time you printed your family photos instead of just posting them on Facebook? when was the last time you made a real photo album instead of just posting on Picasa? The creators of the ‘Flag‘ app decided to make people print again, and to do that – they created a simple and free high-quality printing service. The catch? An ad will be printed on the back of each print. [more]
OnOne Software is certainly not a new name to the retouching world. Building software since 2005, OnOne has brought us a long line of Photoshop plugins and Lightroom presets. Continuing their goal to make retouching a far less painstaking process, onOne Software has decided to give away their flagship Perfect Effects 8 software for free, but only for the next few days. But what exactly is onOne Perfect Effects 8?
Before I heap on the apologies, I do want to say that I get sent a lot of gear. Gear that varies in required skill level, genre of photography and purpose. I’ve reviewed a lot of equipment over the years, and eventually I was bound to make a mistake- I’m pretty much the furthest thing from infallible. Well it happened, and I’m sorry. My initial review of the Fotopro tripod was negative due in most part to, you got it, user error. [more]
In the photography world it is all about lighting, lighting, lighting. For videographers the main emphasis is not necessarily lighting as much as it is motion. Perhaps the easiest and most affordable way to add motion to your DSLR video is by using a slider. In this video we take a closer look at the Rhino Slider and why it might be the best sub $800 slider on the market. [more]
If you’re a checklist kind of person and you want to know what you’ve already done and what’s next, then Terminl is the product for you! All of your progress is tracked and accessible from wherever you are through this new online system. This complete workflow management system is just as slick as it is useful. [more]
It’s no secret that I have an unquenchable, near fetish-like lust for buttons and sliders or anything really that makes image processing akin to playing some freaky, incongruous musical instrument one might find in the Mos Eisley Cantina. This year, at CES 2014, Griffin announced an updated version of their PowerMate – an all-purpose, aluminum knob that will be wireless and wonderful and not out for a few more months. Luckily, there is a pretty great (and relatively inexpensive) wired version available now. [more]
Nikon’s update to its flagship D4 DSLR will be on view today through Friday at the International Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas. A new image processing engine and better autofocus highlight the improvements to come from the full frame HD-DSLR. There are scant details beyond yesterday’s press release.
Sony announced a few new products to the photo and video world at CES 2014 earlier today. There were the expected offerings of new action cams, point and shoots and 4K TVs, and a few unexpected stand-out products: The first being an extremely affordable and lightweight 20 megapixel mirrorless camera and the second being an unexpectedly beautiful 4K prosumer camcorder. [more]
One of the previous year’s best and most sought after cameras is getting a makeover, and now coming to you in a stylish black design. Announced today at CES in Vegas, the FujiFilm X100S is getting a visual upgrade, showing off an all black design from it’s previous silver/black vintage look. Aside from that nothing has changed, it still sports all the same specs that we’ve loved from the past year’s model.
