Velbon ULTRA-Series Tripods
Velbon offers an innovative and unique travel solution with its range of ULTRA-series compact tripods. The leg design includes five-section legs with a larger tube diameter, which allows for a compact load while traveling. The ULTRA series extends to the height of a full-size tripod, creating an extremely stable surface for your camera.

Cotton Carrier Camera System
The Cotton Carrier Camera System was designed for professional photographers and allows you to securely carry one or two SLR or video cameras. It includes a vest harness, a removable side holster, camera hubs, and two camera tethers. The vest is crafted from durable 1680 Denier material and the hubs are made from hard anodized aluminum with a marine-grade, stainless steel insert bolt. The system has a one-year warranty and a retail value of $139.


In our recent review of the HiTi P110S Pocket Studio (November, 2010, issue) the reviewer stated that in order to keep shooting while printing the user needed to disconnect the cable between the camera and the printer. In fact, the unit has a dedicated USB switch that can be turned off and that allows you to continue shooting while the unit is printing.
