The Nano system comprises a Nano Transmitter and a Nano Receiver. It is small, sleek and designed to complement the contours of a camera. It is unobstructive and small enough to fit in a pocket. The Nano is made of a high strength plastic blend making it extremely rugged. Its powerful radio allows shooting in locations where other triggers fail. It can reliably trigger flashes through obstructions and in areas with extensive radio interference. In ideal conditions the maximum range is over 1,750 feet.

International Supplies has announced that Japanese lens maker Yasuhara just released a Nanoha Macro Extension Tube Set for Micro 4/3rds and Sony E mount cameras. These tubes allow users to increase the distance between the lens and the sensor, thus enabling the lens to focus much closer than its minimum focusing distance. The set includes both a 10mm and a 16mm hollow extension tube that can be used either individually or in combination to achieve optimal magnification. Simply mount one or both of the tubes between the camera and the lens. The two tubes, when used together, can provide a combined length of 26mm. The greater the distance, the closer the lens will be able to focus. For macro photography, the focal distance of the lens must be larger than the extension length of the Nanoha tube(s) used.

James was intent on getting images of bears and wolves with the Teton Mountains in the background, and he sure came up with a winner!

Perhaps motivated by the recent controversy over some heavily edited and staged images by famed photographer Steve McCurry, Editor-in-Chief Susan Goldberg addressed the topic head-on in the July issue of the magazine.
