The b-grip, made in Italy by CPtech, provides a strong safe support for your DSLR. The base attaches to your waist belt (or to the belt provided), while the quick-release plate attaches to the camera tripod socket. A quick release mechanism provides instant access to the camera when required. A simple safety system prevents accidental release of the camera. An additional supplied safety cord can be deployed for extra peace of mind.

b-grip's broad base spreads the weight of the camera making it extremely comfortable to wear. Unlike a conventional neck strap, the camera is held firmly in place and cannot swing about, reducing the chances of damage. b-grip lets you mount the camera either lens-down or lens-up. The lens-up position provides a third hand when changing lenses. A supplied dust and rain cover provides additional protection if required.

Benro, who has been manufacturing tripods for more than 10 years (and has the #1 market share in their home country of China), offers high quality tripods, monopods and heads that are built to professional standards at an extraordinary value. Benro is distributed in the U.S. by Westchester, NY based MAC Group. “We are very proud to add Benro to our product mix,” states Jeff Karp, Benro Product Marketing Manager. “The high quality, innovative designs and exceptional value make Benro the perfect choice for demanding photographers on a budget.”

Benro has the technology and manufacturing capabilities to build products made of carbon fiber (8 layers for ultimate stability), aluminum (top performance at an economical price) and magnesium (lighter than aluminum, yet stronger) – materials that provide outstanding performance and reliability -- at economical prices. Benro is the only company that makes its own carbon fiber tubing.

An excellent example of Benro’s design capabilities is their new "Quick Lock" Leg System that sets the new standard in flip lock technology. Its rugged construction, reliability and ease of operation elevates leg locking systems to a new level.

One of the most unique tripods in Benro’s lineup is the patented Travel Angel, available in both carbon fiber and aluminum. This is an easy-to-carry, ultra-compact tripod that photographers will take with them everywhere they go. What good is a tripod if you leave it home because it’s too big or heavy? Travel Angel’s unique 180 degree fold over design allows them to be folded into a compact package (up to 20% smaller than conventionally designed tripods) that can easily fit into backpacks or luggage. However, when quick setup, excellent maximum height and a rigid, stable support are needed, Benro Travel Angels are outstanding performers. All kits include a BH-Series single action or B-Series dual action ballhead that matches the size of the tripod.

In addition to tripods and monopods, Benro builds a full range of heads. Whether you select a Benro single action or dual action ballhead or 3-Way panhead, you’ll see the quality that goes into all Benro products the minute you pick them up. Benro tripod heads are produced using the latest in precision machining and manufacturing technology to ensure smooth and secure operation. The patented, dual locking, dovetailed Quick Release Plates or Arca Swiss style Quick Release Plates allow fast and secure camera mounting and dismounting without having to worry about accidentally unseating the camera.

To help you decide on the right equipment for your shooting situations, Benro provides a series of web-based videos that show the features and benefits of Benro products. Choose from “Why you need a tripod” (even with image stabilization and high ISO cameras, the best results happen with a tripod) to “Selecting the perfect tripod head” to “Benro Travel Angel” and more.

BenVista announces today the release of a major update for PhotoZoom Pro 2. The
new version 2.2 for both Windows and Mac OS X platforms is now available. PhotoZoom
Pro 2, BenVista's digital image resizing software, was initially released in August
2006. BenVista continued to work on further improvements and additional features,
which have now been added in today's release.



The S-Spline XL resizing technique, which (together with the original ?S-Spline
technique) is unique to the PhotoZoom software range, has been improved and now
gives even better results. PhotoZoom Pro 2 comes both as a standalone application
and as an export plugin for Adobe(R) Photoshop. The plugin version is now compatible
with Photoshop CS3. While the standalone version already was a Universal application
for the Mac, the plugin now too is Universal (when used in CS3).



Other improvements are speed boosts, preference settings for a more convenient
workflow, and a fully rewritten, up-to-date manual.



The latest version of PhotoZoom Pro 2, for both Windows and Mac OS X, can be downloaded
directly from www.benvista.com.
PhotoZoom Pro 2.2 comes as a free update for registered PhotoZoom Pro 2 users.

Michael Muller loves photographing sharks, especially without being encumbered by things like protective cages or restrictive safety gear. While it may seem dangerous to you and I, to him, it’s a big rush.
