Sharpics, Inc., has revealed its line of enhanced Studio Lighting Kits, designed
to offer cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions for achieving professional product
photography images.



Sharpics' Compact Studio Light Kit (model LKT-92) and Clamp-on Overhead
Light (model CLK-9) are said to be built to ensure accurate product photography
and bring out the true colors of the particular object being photographed. Sharpics'
compact designs can deliver ideal lighting placement for tabletop photography.



The line also includes two compact 30-watt fluorescent bulbs with the LKT-92 lighting
kit, which provide the equivalent to a 240-watt incandescent bulb. The CLK-9 Overhead
Light will feature one bulb. The compact fluorescent bulbs use 75 to 80 percent
less power than equivalent incandescent bulbs, offering energy-efficiency, cooler
temperature and longevity. The addition of these `daylight-balanced'
bulbs will also offer users the ability to achieve lighting effects comparable
to natural daylight.

The compact studio light kit includes two mini studio lights, designed for applications
such as tabletop photography. SRP: $129.95



Features:

· Two compact light stands

Sharpics is also the creator of the D-Flector -- a patent-pending portable
photo studio that quickly unfolds into a tabletop background stand to support
the product photography needs of everyone from professional to novice photographers.
The product is ideal for individuals to easily create high-quality product images
needed for selling items via the Internet, designing print catalogs, marketing
and promotional materials, art projects, etc. The D-Flector has also proven to
be helpful for documenting items for insurance claims, appraisals, home and office
inventories or estate planning.

Design has added a collection of camera/binocular straps to its patent-pending
Superbungee Shoulder Strap line. Like the original Superbungee Bag Strap, the
camera/binocular version features what the company calls a "sport-tuned
suspension system," consisting of a high-density, floating bungee cord
ring which acts as a shock absorber, minimizing carrying discomfort and perceived
weight. On the reverse (wearer) side of the shoulder pad is a flexible strip
of individual, air-filled cells. The cells add to the shock absorption and comfort,
and are covered in a friction laminate to help prevent slipping.



The strap is designed to fit any current camera or binocular with standard,
3/8"/11mm strap slots, or it can be threaded to the split keyring-type
connectors on older cameras. Strap length has a nominal overall length adjustment
range of 21-45 inches, and is equally well-suited for carrying around the neck
or over the shoulder.



The Superbungee Shoulder Strap is available in 5 different color combinations,
at a suggested retail price of $19.95. The original Superbungee Bag strap--a
larger version designed as an upgrade to standard straps found on laptop/photo
bags, sports duffels, luggage and other carrying cases--is available in
6 color combinations at $25.95.

In the 1930s, a small group of California photographers challenged the painterly, soft-focus Pictorialist style of the day. They argued that photography could only advance as an art if its practitioners exploited characteristics inherent to the camera’s mechanical nature. This small association of innovators created Group f/64, named after the camera aperture which produces great depth of...
