There’s a lot of really cool stuff going on around the photo industry, and I thought I would bring you up to speed on the latest and greatest. New gear, cool discounts, and other happenings have made for some exciting times recently. Here’s some of the things I have found most interesting:
- Nikon has been busy, after recently releasing the D300s as they just announced the new D3s (pictured above). It’s essentially a D3 with 720p HD video, a built-in sensor cleaning system, and super-high ISO capability; 102,400 to be exact! If you already own a D3, it doesn’t make much sense to upgrade. However, if you were looking to move up to a camera of this caliber, then the D3s is the way to go. Unless you’re a wildlife photographer shooting in harsh conditions, a pro sports shooter, or a newspaper photographer, then you probably don’t need this camera and a D90, D300s, or D700 would suit you just find. MSRP is $5199.95. You can read more about it on Nikon’s website. Finally, a D3 I would buy!
- MpixPro is now offering Custom Printed DVDs! This is a great way to deliver digital negatives to your client and present them in a very professional way. They look so much better than disc labels printed on an inkjet printer and they only cost $7.00! All you have to do is upload the file to MpixPro and they send you the blank DVD with your image printed on the front. If you’re an MpixPro user then you will really appreciate this great product.
- Speaking of Mpix, they are offering free shipping on frames until October 20th! If you need custom frames for yourself or your clients then head on over and take advantage of a great offer! Just enter the promo code: frame10 at checkout.
- I recently had a chance to work a little bit with Jason D. Moore of Jason D. Moore Photography in the Walk4Hearing Silent Auction. Jason is a super-nice guy and an excellent photographer as well. On top of that, he’s an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in Photoshop which means he really knows is stuff when is comes to the digital darkroom. Check out his work and stop by and say “Hello!” Tell him I sent ya.
That wraps things up for me for this week. I’ve been incredibly busy and it’s not stopping now. I’m shooting a wedding tomorrow in Ramona, CA so I’ll be busy for the next couple of weeks. There’s a whole lot that goes into shooting a wedding, and I’ll be documenting some of that here on the blog. Additionally, I’m going to begin featuring some video tutorials on photography techniques. These will be short, down, and dirty but my goal is to show you how to get the job done. Stay tuned for those and I’ll look forward to sharing some wedding shots with you! Have a great weekend!
