Sometimes, when I’m the field I have downtime. It could be a train ride back or having to wait for my next task. During these times I want to edit my video work. I want to get it done, in the most efficient way possible. The issue is I can not always carry my laptop. At PhotoPlus Expo 2017 I think I may have found a solution to this issue, the Gnarbox.
Ever since I got into my current photography life I have done one event annually, Photo Plus Expo. It has become my way of exploring the photography gear frontier. I generally go in the hopes of testing out new gear, but over time its become an expedition. I meet up with my local photog friend as well as those I only see once a year. We share, coffee, meal, and try to go on photowalks. It’s a proper photography conference.
If you ever catch me with an 85mm lens it’s most likely a Nikon 85mm 1.8D. Everyone needs a good portrait lens. If I ever had to mourn the passing of that lens I would have to consider a replacement. There are lots of lenses to choose from. I tried Tamron SP 35mm f/1.8, it impressed me. At Photo Plus Expo I was introduced to Tamrons 85mm 1.8. It was very interesting as well. (more…)
Photo Plus Expo is not just about finding new products, it’s also about finding useful ones. One of the products that got my attention was the Lexar® Professional Workflow line of products. It has been out for some time now but I really did not need to pay attention to it till now. I needed a future proof card reading device and this seemed to fit the bill.
