The annual Maine Media Workshops Alumni, Faculty and Friends party took place at the B&H SuperStore on October 23, 2013. A good time was had by all, and we've got the photos to prove it. If you're not familiar, Maine Media provides a variety of programs on photography, filmmaking, multimedia and writing. Classes take place at their serene campus in Rockport, Maine, and offer a rare opportunity for you to completely immerse yourself in your craft. Take a look at their schedule of upcoming workshops, and check out the rest of these party pictures—so you know what you're getting yourself into.
When you head out into the unknown with a camera around your neck, there's always an element of uncertainty. At the end of the day, we're just mortals, who can rapidly make the transition from predator to prey. From the jowls of giant watery creatures to the horns of charging bulls, we present the top five encounters with giant beasts.
Nikon recently released several videos and launched a dedicated page which hint at the introduction of a new camera body. Hard information about the new camera is nearly nonexistent. However, the videos contain an abundance of mood, and suggest that their new product will inspire the uninspired, and rekindle your love of "Pure Photography." What does it all mean?
The PDN PhotoPlus Expo took place in New York City, and B&H was everywhere. We were exhibitors at the show (booth #455), and we posted a storm of show updates on B&H Insights, Twitter and Instagram. There was a bunch of compelling new products on display at the show, so we've rounded up the most interesting highlights in this post.
After LED panels, I felt that I should move back to still photo and on-camera flash units. The Spinlight 360 was an intriguing new piece of gear. They were giving a demonstration, and I couldn't tell you how quickly they moved through all the different options. First it was a clear dome, then a filter, followed by a snoot. It was fast, and held to the flash head really well. It also spins 360º for using half domes and similar items however you would like. Need some more control over an on-camera flash? Spinlight 360 may work for you.
The Rotolight booth is bright! They have a bunch of round LED panels set up, and a couple mounted on DSLRs. Within the past year they have won multiple awards, and they feature WiFi control for up to 512 different panels—quite impressive if you ask me! The lights have super-accurate color that’s good enough to be used on Captain Phillips. And for the DSLR filmmaker, a great small LED panel with some LEE filters and a microphone should be extremely useful. One mount for two important items.
After using Kickstarter to fund the original Capture camera holster system, Peak Design is out with version 2 and a variety of new accessories. This slick new design features a clip that you attach to your belt or another strap, which allows you to quickly snap your camera in and out. The Capture and Capture Pro models can carry your large camera system with ease. And they are compatible with Arca-Swiss and Manfrotto tripods, if you pick certain models.
