This just makes sense. With all the HDSLR cameras that have been introduced over the past few years, I sort of expected to see more of this sooner (I think Canon’s 320EX is the only first-party unit so far). [Read more…]

Notably absent from the newly supported devices is the 5D Mark III; however, PocketWizard says that support is coming.

Zack Arias is known for his OneLight mantra and has been making waves for the past few years as a standout commercial and editorial photographer in Atlanta. Kai over at DigitalRev got him out in a Chinese back alley for a round of Pro Photographer Cheap Camera.
In this episode, Zack gets stuck with a full-auto Kodak C142 digital camera and a single speedlight. Then, he has to figure out how to make the two work together and turn out something respectable.
It’s worth a watch to see just how much Zack can pull out of a $79 camera and a single speedlight.
Joe McNally has a new book. It’s called Sketching Light. It’s pretty big at 432 pages. And, it’s all about lighting.
He tells readers what works and what doesn’t via his let’s-see-what-happens approach, he shows how he sets up his shots with plentiful sketches and behind-the-scenes production shots….
I loved his earlier lighting book, The Hot Shoe Diaries, and I’m really looking forward to this new book. I enjoy McNally’s stories and wit about as much as I do the information he provides. Expect good stuff.
Nikon has unveiled the SB-910 Speedlight, which now serves as the top-tier Speedlight in its lineup.
The SB-910 adds a new graphic interface and control set. It also features a new thermal cut-out system that will increase recycle times as the flash heats up instead of shutting down completely while it cools off.
The SB-910 covers a 17-200mm angle of view range and will automatically detect whether it is attached to an FX or DX camera, and then adjust the zoom head accordingly.
Additionally, the SB-910 features new hard-type color compensation filters for fluorescent and incandescent color temperature balancing. When applied, the SB-910 can change the white balance setting of the camera automatically. The coverage patterns can be adjusted for standard, center-weighted and even for control over the light spread.
