ThinkTank Photo Pixel Sunscreen V2.0

Posted  October 17, 2014  by  Lawrence

FIRST IMPRESSIONS: Wow. The collapsed state looks like that of a 5-in-1 reflector. The flat form factor makes the ThinkTank Photo Pixel Sunscreen V2.0 64 easy to transport in a backpack. The flat form factor is a great feature for digital techs and digital artists on location that already have a laptop with case to […]

Spinlight 360 Extreme

Posted  September 23, 2014  by  Lawrence

Joby Flash Clamp and Locking Arm

Posted  August 11, 2014  by  Lawrence

At first I was a little concerned about whether my Nikon SB-910 would be too heavy for the ABS plastic construction of the Joby Flash Clamp & Locking Arm but I was pleasantly suprised how secure it appeared on the system.
