Swift's Ultra Lite collection are said to be the first and only binoculars
to incorporate two different types of rubber to improve durability, shock-absorption
and comfort. These new binoculars combine harder rubber on their outer edges
for better protection against bangs and bumps. Softer rubber is used in the
area where you grip the binoculars, thereby reducing user fatigue. The softer
rubber also provides a superior grip in any weather condition, wet or dry. This
same technology is also used to create a non-slip focusing knob on these binoculars.
The dual density covering also aids the nature photographer by keeping these
binoculars quiet when rubbing against their clothes.

The F.J. Westcott Company has introduced their new Spiderlite for still and
video imagemakers. The Spiderlite is less than five inches deep and is constructed
of solid metal. The inner metal surface of the light offers a highly reflective
surface. Any light falling backwards is again reflected back into a Soft Box
allowing for maximum output of the lights. Built-in points allow for direct
attachment of a Soft Box onto the Spiderlite itself. This not only cuts down
the cost of purchasing an adapter ring, but also allows the end user fewer parts
to carry or lose as well as quicker set-up.
