Promote Control

Shooting up to 45 bracketed images for HDR unattended, time-lapse, bulb ramping, focus stacking, and a hyperfocal distance calculator all wrapped in a device the size of an iPod—that’s the Promote Control.

Portrait Professional 11 Studio 64 Edition

I’ve had the opportunity to play with the newest version of Portrait Professional Studio 64 Edition by Anthropics Technology Ltd., and it’s been great fun.

The Sensu Brush

When you first see the Sensu Brush, it looks like a silvery version of every other stylus out there. What you don’t see is what’s hidden within. Give the barrel a slight tug and out pops a second piece. When you flip that piece around and combine the two parts again, you find yourself holding a full-length paintbrush. The brush gives you an incredible tactile experience; it feels so good to use that it helps to unleash the artist in you.

HDR Projects Platin

German-developed HDR Projects Platin is the most intricate, feature-complete HDR app I’ve ever seen. It’s more advanced than FDRTools Advanced and offers more control than Photomatix Pro.

Drift HD Ghost

The action and adventure camera market is hot, with photographers and adventurers recording their exploits on ski slopes, at the race track, on the water, or in the urban jungle. The Drift HD Ghost is a solid camera packed with features, such as 1080p video, 11 megapixel still images, and HDMI connector.

Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic

The Edge 80 Optic is the newest addition to the Lensbaby Optic Swap System. It’s a tilt-shift optic that, when tilted, creates a sharp area of focus through the photo that’s bordered by a blur.

PNG Express

PNG Express is a powerful plug-in that allows you to add tags to the names of groups and layers and, with the click of a button, exports them into PNG files.

Hydra Pro 3

Hydra Pro 3 from Creaceed SPRL allows you to create high-dynamic-range (HDR) images. You can import up to seven regular photos to this image editor and it will create a stunning final image, called an HDR image.

Drobo Mini

As many industries and consumers migrate toward cloud-based storage, there are still advantages to physical drive solutions that don’t require any Internet connection, and many offer speeds that are simply not possible for most consumer connections. Factor in drive performance and the addition of an mSATA SSD card (sold separately), and you have the Drobo Mini.

BALLED Pro LED Photo Lights

The BALLED Pro lights are LEDs that output a fixed 125 lumen. They’re suitable for object and food photography, can help with portrait shooting, and are great as a portable lighting kit when shooting video interviews.
