Tuesday News & Updates

Welcome to another addition of Tuesday News, brought to you by none other than myself. Ok, enough corny dialogue.

  • Kodak has entered the competitive printing market with their new ESP line of all-in-one printers that boast lab-quality photo prints and a 50% savings on ink. They use pigment-based ink to resist fading and prices start at $129.99 (MSRP). Check out Kodak’s website for more details. Here’s the link.
  • Fellow San Diego photographer Ken Rockwell is threatening to dump all of his Nikon gear! According to his blog, this outburst seems to have been sparked by Nikon setting the price of the new D3X at $8,000.00 (MSRP). When you click the link I’ll provide, scroll down to 28 December 2008 and read what Ken wrote. Very interesting. Here’s the link.
  • Don’t forget that our D90 Photo Contest opens up for entries on New Year’s Day! Full details about how to enter will be posted on the Photo Contest page beginning on January 1st, 2009. Get your best work (shot with a D90 of course) ready and give it a go. You never know, you could be the winner of a brand new Nikon MB-D80 Battery Grip to go with your D90.
  • If you’re looking for a more reliable solution for off-camera, wireless flash than what the Cactus V2s triggers provide, then check out the CyberSyncs from Paul C. Buff, Inc. Those are the same great folks that bring us the Alien Bees and White Lightning studio strobes. A transmitter and receiver will run you $130.00 (models CST & CSRB) and they’re only available direct from the manufacturer. Here’s the link.
  • If you’re a Lightroom user like I am, then be sure to check out the Lightroom Exchange over at Adobe’s website. There are a lot of great downloads, plugins, etc. for Lightroom that are available there and they are mostly free. Here’s the link.

That’s it for today. Be sure to check back tomorrow for a really cool DIY tutorial for making your own homemade beauty dish! See you then!
