Today, I am traveling to Las Vegas for NAB 2015. Over the next week, I’ll be covering the latest and greatest pro and enthusiast video tools from NAB this year.
There has been quite a bit of news already. [Read more…]
Alien Bees, White Lightning and Einsteins were just three of the incredible product lines Paul C. Buff brought to the photography industry but each are still workhorses among many professionals every day.
The Paul C. Buff name has carried a reputation of performance, reliability and affordability in lighting products over the past several years. With products invented and manufactured in Nashville, Tennessee since 1980, it is one of the most respected brands in the industry.
I learned earlier today that he died last week on March 14, 2015 at age 78. The Paul C. Buff, Inc. website released a statement on his passing. [Read more…]
SanDisk has announced a new 200GB microSDXC UHS-I card designed for mobile devices, besting the size of its previously largest 128GB card.
The new card delivers of to 90MB/s read speed (unknown write speed) and will be available in the second quarter of 2015 for $399.99.

In the second quarter of the football game today between Oklahoma and Kansas State, Oklahoma’s quarterback Trevor Knight threw a fade pass to the corner of the end zone. Receiver Sterling Shepard laid out for the reception and landed just outside the back corner of the end zone.
The problem for Shepard and one unfortunate photographer was that Shepard landed on top of a Canon telephoto lens. [Read more…]
It came as no surprise when I received a phone call last week from one of my contacts at B&H Photo that the company had been awarded 2014 E-tailer of the Year by Digital Imaging Magazine.
Photography Bay has been closely affiliated with B&H since shortly after this site kicked off back in 2006. And before that, I had been a personal customer of B&H for several years dating back to my high school days as I browsed its ad in the back of Popular Photography every month. [Read more…]
We’re here in Vegas for NAB 2014, along with several other bloggers to cover the show. There is so much that no single blogger or site could cover all of the show. So, that’s why Photography Bay has teamed up with Mitch over at Planet 5D and several other sites for a massive live blog of NAB 2014.
At last count, there were over 20 bloggers contributing. You can expect regular updates throughout the week. This is the first time we’ve attempted something like this, so let us know if you have suggestions for how to improve it.
You can see the live coverage here on Photography Bay.
Of course, we’ll still have longer form content with more in-depth coverage appearing daily on the home page. You can also follow Photography Bay here on Twitter and here on Instagram for updates from the show floor.
Photo retailer, Calumet, has filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy and closed all of its US stores (the UK Calumet brand is an entirely different company). Employees found out early this morning when they were told not to come to work or arrived at work to find the store was closed. [Read more…]
I’m posting what I can in the evenings, but if you want to see new products as I see them, check out Photography Bay on Instagram and Twitter. I’m posting a lot of photos and content while I’m still at various booths around CES 2014.

The FAA has officially made it ok for passengers to use portable electronic devices, such as iPads, Kindles, iPhones (in airplane mode) and cameras, during all phases of flight. We’ve known for a long time that these devices are safe to use while the airplane is in operation, including takeoff and landing, but the FAA took plenty of time to make it officially ok. [Read more…]
