Photojournalist David Honl outs New Products to Honl Photo Line

Press release:

Michigan City, IN (PRWEB) January 9, 2010 -- Photojournalist David Honl has added 3 exciting new products to his well-respected line of Honl Photo professional lighting accessories for small flash users.

The David Honl: Light DVD
The David Honl: Light DVD is an entertaining introduction to Honl's small, quick, and nimble lighting setups. Joining him is his partner, actress Claudia Christian, along with actor Bill Mumy (Lost in Space), actress Pat Tallman (Night of the Living Dead), and a 40th Anniversary portrait for the Planet of the Apes. With a total of 10 dynamic lighting setups, David takes you through each quick 5-minute session, followed by explanatory lighting diagrams in David's studio. David insists, "When it comes to lighting, I've found most people are quite intimidated by it. To spread the word that there should be no fear in studio-quality lighting, and show that it can actually be quite fun, Claudia and I filmed several of my shoots this past year . We shot everything from a gourmet food shot, a cat headshot, and a glamour shot with a Frederick's model"
David Honl: Light DVD retails for $39.95

Honl adds 2 new filter kits to his lighting system line.
The Honl Photo Autumn Filter Kit includes 5 new colors including Rust, Medium Blue-Green, Egg Yolk Yellow, Dark Salmon, and Chocolate.

Both kits attach to the Honl Photo Speed Strap and can be used in conjunction with Honl Photo Speed Grids, Speed Snoots, and Speed Gobos. "Adding a splash of color to a portrait is a great way to create drama a depth to a portrait, and I'm thrilled to offer these new filter colors to my lineup- I hand picked them from some of my favorite shoots this past year" says Honl.

Each kit contains 2 of each filter and retails for $19.95 each

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of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy.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…
