PocketWizard has a new off-camera flash tutorial (above) hosted by Joe Brady that covers the ins and outs of off-camera flash with mirrorless cameras. In the tutorial, Brady takes the Sony NEX-6 and NEX-7 for a spin with the PocketWizard Plus III and MiniTT1 and a variety of speedlights. [Read more…]
PocketWizard has a new Nikon Power Cable that works with the MiniTT1, Plus III and MultiMAX (w/ USB) transceivers. It will allows these transceivers to draw power from any Nikon DSLR that is equipped with a 10-pin remote port.
The PocketWizard transceivers use little power and, according to PocketWizard, have almost no impact on the camera’s battery life. The Nikon Power Cable (PW-DC-N10) is available for $20. You can find it here at B&H Photo.
Bob Harrington gave a speedlight presentation at B&H Photo’s Event Space on using one speedlight for multiple looks with a limited kit of modifiers.
Here’s his gear list:
The Rogue FlashBender XL Pro Lighting kit contains 4 extra-large speedlight modifiers in a compact package that packs flat in camera bags.
The 4 modifiers in the kit are:
- 1x XL Pro FlashBender White Reflector
- 1x XL Pro Strip Box Diffuser Attachment
- 1x XL Pro Soft Box Diffuser Attachment
- 1x XL Pro Silver/Black Reflector Attachment
The Rogue FlashBender XL Pro Lighting Kit retails for $99.95 and is available here at B&H Photo.
Even though we are now in April, I am still digging through things I saw while at CES 2013 back in January. One of the interesting things for Pentax shooters was a new speedlight mockup on display in the Pentax booth.
The only official thing I can reveal about it is that Pentax was “showing a reference model of new flashes.” Boring, eh?
Well, you can see in the images below what Pentax might have going on with its new flash unit(s) at some point in the probably reasonably near future. Feel free to speculate away. And, if you spot something that jumps out at you, please let us know in the comments. [Read more…]
