PhotoFlex announces the release of FlexFlash, light and compact yetsubstantial in feel. The digital display allows a photographer to dial-in with spot-on accuracy the exposures. Fast recycle, push button quick lock accessory attachment design and weighing in at 5 pounds, this strobe is the perfect solution for studio photographers of all levels. As always with the Photoflex products, Flexflash is designed smart for today’s photographers needs and built to last.
Photoflex Inc. announced that all of their strobe kits will include one FlashFire 16-channel radio trigger and a receiver for each head. This represents a major price breakthrough because a high quality radio trigger and receiver can often exceed the cost of a strobe head and modifier.
Photoflex announced the release of the New LitePanel Frame Hardware. The hardware allows you to suspend Photoflex LitePanel frames onto the LiteReach Plus or a LiteStand. This new versatileclamping swivel system provides a variety of support and positioning possibilities for the Photoflex LitePanel reflector diffuser frame line. The LitePanel hardware comes with the Photoflex SwivelMount allowing for maximum versatility.
The TritonFlash battery pack has two output sockets and will simultaneously power any combination of TritonFlash, Nikon or Canon heads at full power. Between 2000-2500 full power flashes are possible using the TritonFlash Power Cable and one speedlight. Additional heads do not slow recycle time, but will deplete the battery charge proportionally. Full battery recharge takes four hours, but Lithium Ion batteries benefit from partial charging with no ill effects. Canon and Nikon compatible cables are available at this time.

Additionally, the lens’ satin-anodized reflective surface allows the light transition to create beautiful skin tones, as well as sharp details.

The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), joined by the Graphic Artists Guild, the Picture Archive Council of America, the North American Nature Photography Association, Professional Photographers of America, photographers Leif Skoogfors, Al Satterwhite, Morton Beebe, Ed Kashi and illustrators John Schmelzer and Simms Taback, has filed a class action copyright infringement suit against Google, Inc. in the U.S. District for the Southern District of New York. The suit, which was filed by Mishcon de Reya New York LLP, relates to Google’s illegal scanning of millions of books and other publications containing copyrighted images and displaying them to the public without regard to the rights of the visual creators. ASMP and the other trade associations, representing thousands of members, decided to file the class action after the Court denied their request to join the currently pending $125 million class action that had previously been filed primarily on behalf of text authors in connection with the Google Library Project. The new class action goes beyond Google’s Library Project, and includes Google’s other systematic and pervasive infringements of the rights of photographers, illustrators and other visual artists.
