My buds at Wacom have been very busy, just announcing three new exciting products. The Cintiq Companion, Cintiq Companion Hybrid and Intuos Creative Stylus. There is simply way too much cool stuff here for me to list it all, you need to click on the links to read but it’s pretty amazing! Being a huge fan and hooked on the Cintiq 13HD, which I use all the time, I can only imagine the doors this new technology can open. Check it out!
Being recognized as a visual storyteller is not only an honor, but it means a lot to me as that’s what I strive for with every click. Being selected to be a Nikon Ambassador, we’ve all been working towards today’s launch. But it wasn’t until today I knew who the other Ambassadors were and wow, what a select group! I’m totally taken a back!
The dedication to advancing the art of visual storytelling while embracing and mastering the latest technologies and trends in the field are paramount to these photographers being selected as Nikon Ambassadors.
As the top visual storytellers of this era, their advanced techniques, unprecedented creativity and tenacious approach to imaging solutions is demonstrated assignment after assignment, each and every time they pick up a Nikon camera.
This sums up well the goal I’ve made for my photography, past, present and future. I want to thank all of you for coming along for the ride with me!
Nikon has just brought online their new Cinema Blog. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have even brought it to your attention, this times have changed. While still a primarily a still photographer, I shoot a lot of video and for me, it’s a brave new world. I eat up all the resources I can trying to perfect my video capture and I think you’ll find this a great resource, I do.

Paul Bowen is great guy, a gentleman in the industry and one helluva a shooter! He has a gorgeous spread and great story on his work in the current issue of f11. Paul’s aviation photography, especially his air to air work is spectacular and gives us all a mark of excellence to shoot for. You want to read this piece and enjoy the images. And it’s easy to do, the magazine is online and can be downloaded as a PDF.
The Really Right Stuff LC-A13 80-400 repl collar is now available and is a VAST improvement over the stock collar that comes with the lens. The collar operation is smooth as silk, not quite as tall as the stock collar and more importantly, is much beefier than the stock collar. Unlike the stock collar, you remove the RRS collar by unscrewing the knob and than swinging half of the collar over the barrel. Can’t recommend this enough to you!
The next generation of the Di-GPS is now available and it is by far the best! The Di-GPS Eco is the smallest, lightest, most battery friendly and now MC cord friendly GPS on the planet. I can’t say enough good things about it other than, I wish I had it last week in Churchill where the cable on my GP-1 broke again! You see, there is no cord with the new unit. It slips into the 10 pin socket and goes. And it provides a socket so you can use your cable releases. They have models for cameras like the D4 (pictured) or like the D7100. GPS has come a long way!
Oh my, the N2 is one sa-weet NAS! There are many NAS units on the market, why ioSafe? It is the only water and fireproof unit you’re going to find that comes with a guarantee. If that doesn’t get you attention how about this. The N2 is powered by a Synology DSM motherboard and operating system. It allows for fast (and we’re talking FAST!) access on your local network and remote access from nearly any device connected to the internet – all secured and protected by you. This NAS/RAID can be either 2, 4, 6 or 8TB and it can be upgraded with time by you, just plug and go! And I’m just getting started on features and a matter a fact, there are so many features I don’t have space to list them all. They are extensive so click here to read them all. Now you might be wondering where the photo of my N2 is. Well, it’s under my desk working away as all, ALL of my video archive are being transfered. Running on the iMac (a switch required), the N2 is so fast I can edit video residing on it. This is an amazing unit that does so much more than safely store data. It’s a winner!
