CalDigit AV Pro

There’s fast, then there’s Solid State Drive (SSD) fast when it comes to storage solutions. It seems that every manufacturer claims that they have the best, fastest, and most stable solution, but for photo, video, and design applications, our definitions may seem a bit skewed. Enter the new CalDigit AV Pro external storage solution.

ABEO Pro 283AGH

The ABEO Pro 283AGH is a versatile aluminum tripod from VANGUARD that allows you to place your camera in just about any shooting position you can imagine. This particular model also includes VANGUARD’s GH-300T grip head with a convenient built-in shutter release.

Rhino Slider Carbon

The Rhino Slider Carbon is a camera slider based on two exposed carbon fiber rails capable of carrying loads of up to 10 lbs. The rails are mounted on a cleverly designed pair of feet that can be placed at any angle to accommodate for uneven terrain. Nothing on this slider requires you to use any tools. You can mount, remove, and fix everything by hand.

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.
