Even though his first smartphone camera wasn’t very good by his standards—he is a professional photographer, after all—he liked being able to take quick, casual, spur-of-the-moment pictures when his DSLR wasn’t at hand, or when he didn’t feel like hauling it out.

30-Inch Moon Unit by Paul C. Buff: The 30-inch Moon Unit is a unique softbox-like device that attaches to the AlienBees (ABR800) ringflash unit with a quick-release rotating speedring. The camera’s lens can see through the center of the Moon Unit to achieve a unique large-source light on the camera axis. Using the ringflash with the Moon Unit produces subtle, controlled, almost indiscernible shadows and large appealing catch lights at modest camera-to-subject distances. Its minuscule depth and weight allow handholding right along with your camera, or you can use it as a conventional off-camera compact softbox. The Moon Unit is lightweight, compact and easy to assemble. It consists of a reversible gold/silver reflector surface in an octagonal shape, a removable front nylon diffuser (with a center hole), a removable black fabric mask to convert the octagonal shape to a circle, a rotating speedring, assembly rods and a special reflector that bounces the flash energy into the Moon Unit (instead of forward). The suggested retail price is $59.95.

If there’s a more challenging photographic discipline than wildlife photography, I don’t know what it is. It requires heavy and expensive long focal length lenses, a sturdy tripod, and the physical prowess to schlep all this gear through physically demanding environments. If you’re thinking “that’s not you, Joe,” you are correctamundo so I asked a few friends for advice on telephoto lenses and this is what they told me.
