Expedition PhotoPlus Expo 2016

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.

Thinking about the Lexar® Professional Workflow line (Post #PPE2016)

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.

#NotesFromTheField #PPE2016 Test Drive


I have a belief that you have to try almost everything once to see what you want to try again. In the photography world, one of the best places to do that is the Test Drive at photo plus expo. The new product preview and networking event gives me a great head start in finding the gear I really want to check out at the show. It’s how I learned about a lot of gear I use in my photography. Here’s what I found this year….

New Bags from ThinkTank Photo


Not too long ago, my wife asked me how come I keep using the same camera bag, everyday.  She suggested it was time for a new bag. I told her she would have to pry the bag out of my cold dead hands. My ThinkTank Urban Disguise 60 V2 has been with me through thick and thin. It is a testament to the quality of the product Think Tank Photo makes. In checking my email I see they have announced some new bags. Since this is right before Photo Plus Expo 2016 (They will be in Booth 1029),I can’t wait to see them.  There’s a nice variety to the design of these bags and they are tempting.

Yes, Yes I am looking forward to Photo Plus Expo 2016

ppe-2016-thumb-registration-is-openIts that time of the year again. Photo Plus Expo, the largest photography and imaging conference in the region, is upon us. I have attended the conference, at the Javits Convention Center, in New York, for many years now. The conference has been my best tool in making my  purchasing decisions. If I need and want new equipment, there is a great chance I will be able to test it there. I also get to enjoy the company of good people and  geek out on photography.

Here is what I am looking forward this year when I attend the Photo Plus Expo. (more…)
