If you’re a stock photographer or just selling stuff on Ebay, you might want to take a look at the D-Flector, a portable studio backround on a briefcase. All you need to do is open the case and put it on the top of a desk with your product on it. When you take a picture with your digital camera and flash, the reflective background illuminates with the flash, giving you an ideal white background for your product. No need to buy those expensive lighting equipments or tabletop.
The PPMag has a pro-review of the Monostat RS16 Professional Monopod, a professional tripod features the revolutionary “Swivel Toe Stabilizer” with Max/Min Length of 157 / 62 cm and weighs 630 g;
“It’s tubular style is strong because a metal wall completely surrounds the leg and Monostat has chosen to use the old-school twist lock legs because, they say, twist-locks can always be tightened whatever the temperature. I would have preferred a softer more grippy rubber on the twist-locks rather than Monostat’s wide tread design, but I can see that their wider grooves are less likely to get filled with snow or mud when the going gets sloppy. You should be using some kind of gloves in these situations anyway, so maybe it won’t matter much.”
Think Camera has posted a review of the Lowepro SlingShot 300 AW and writes;
Latest Price Info
“There are lots of great things to say about the Lowepro Slingshot 300 AW. However, one of our female reviewers pointed out a possible problem with it for women. The single strap sits right across your chest. Some women can find this uncomfortable – if you find a seatbelt awkward then you certainly want to try out a Slingshot before you invest in one. Also larger breasted women may find it difficult to spin the bag round. Once it’s on the front of your body it sits relatively high on your chest. If you’re Built for Baywatch then it might be difficult to get the camera out, especially if it has a long lens fitted. You might need to consider one of the smaller Slingshots that sit lower on your hips.”
