Redesigned Think Tank Sunscreen Just Released

From the press release:

Processing and transmitting photographs from remote locations can be hard enough, but adding extreme sun, wind and other natural elements can be a real hassle. We have solved this problem with the redesigned Pixel Sunscreen 2.0. This portable spring loaded sunscreen instantly pops open for quick access. We have completely reengineered our previous version after extensive research and feedback from scores of professional photographers. After many months of research and development, our efforts have really paid off with the following features and enhancements:

Portability - Pixel Sunscreen 2.0 folds down into a small, round portable package that is easy to transport and deploy quickly.

Darker is better - Users can se their laptop screens in even the brightest sunlight now that we have added an overhead cover that extends beyond the top of the sunscreen. This new feature gives you added cover from sunrays reflecting off of your laptop's screen.

No Slipping and Sliding - In extreme conditions, photographers need to know that their laptop and sunscreen are safely secured on their laps. The Pixel Sunscreen 2.0 provides added security with the addition of a non-slip material on the bottom exterior fabric.

An uncluttered workspace - We have added strategically located cord and cable "slots" on the side and back. This allows your lap top to sit even deeper within the shaded area of the interior, dramatically improving visibility to your laptop screen.

In addition, there are now pockets in the interior so that you can place pens and pencils, and a movable "clip" for hanging printed material for easy reference.

Visit the Think Tank store of the DJP to order gear, and should individual orders exceed $50, you will receive a free Lens Changer 50 (or equivalent) with your order.

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
