The Xit Group has introduced the first non-OEM Battery Grip for the Nikon D7100 DSLR Camera. It features a vertical shutter release and effectively doubles your shooting time. It also significantly improves stability in photographing. Xit gives the photographer the choice of using either a battery cartridge that holds 1 EN-EL15 Lithium Ion battery, which can also be supplied by Xit (optional), or a cartridge that holds 6 AA batteries for added convenience. The grip has a 1 year limited warranty.
Photoflex Inc. announces the release of the Adjustable ShoeMount Rotating Hardware. Designed to aid the photographer in adding more light to their set-up, the rotating hardware allows the user to connect two speed lights for improved light output while still having the ability to rotate a softbox of their choice.
The Xit Group has introduced a new Quick Release Dual Shoulder Camera Neck Strap, dubbed the ultimate solution for two camera shooters. It is light weight at only 0.84 lbs., and small with a widening shoulder construction which reduces the burden. The strap is ergonomically designed and the weight is evenly distributed by way of the shoulder pads.
The 20.3MP APS-C CMOS Sensor in the NX2000, produced entirely by Samsung in-house, is said to produce extremely sharp and highly detailed images, even in low light conditions. The NX2000's capabilities are boosted by its DRIMe IV engine which works to reduce noise, improve speed and enable superior color reproduction.
Today’s DSLRs do a lot to keep your images sharp, but for long exposures and perfect camera alignment, you still can’t beat a tripod. We want to see your best shots that could not have been accomplished without three legs under your camera: Breathtaking panoramas, action-packed long exposures, eye-popping HDR, and hyper-detailed macro are all welcome. We’ll give the best shot an ABEO Pro 283CGH tripod (value $549) plus the winning photo will appear in Shutterbug Magazine.
The DSLR Pro Kit includes everything you need to clean the optics on your DSLR: the Original LensPen for lenses, FilterKlear™ to clean filters and MicroPro™ for eyepieces. All three feature two working ends: a retractable naturalbrush for removing loose dust and a carbon-impregnated cleaning pad for removing fingerprints from the optics surface. The carbon compound used in LensPen products is similar to the one found in printer’s ink – which is why newspapers have remained a popular method for cleaning windows and glass for generations. Also included in the DSLR Pro Kit is a microfiber pouch that holds all three pens and can also be used as a cloth for other cleaning applications.
The new size is made specifically for printing 8” x 12” images, which are native to full-frame sensor digital cameras. This type of camera, which has become more popular over time, creates image files in the 2:3 aspect ratio. This ratio produces image files that are 4x6, 8x12, 12x18, and up. 9” x 13” sheets are convenient because they allow photographers to print a full un-cropped 8" x 12" image with a slight border on all sides, perfect for matting and framing.
Red River Paper offers 9” x 13” sheets in glossy, luster, satin, matte, and fine art inkjet paper surfaces. Boxes range from 20 sheets to 50 sheets and start at just $19.99.
The new 16–megapixel Live MOS Sensor achieves both high-resolution and high sensitivity image and video recording. The Venus Engine was also newly developed for the GF6 to attain both high-performance signal processing and noise reduction, achieving a maximum ISO 25,600 (Extended) making the most of the new sensor.
