The Bouncy Castle Inflatable Photo Studio - Now You Know About It You'll Want One

Hands up, who isn't fed up with the rising prices of studio hire - no hands? Exactly, well Brian Hedenberg, a fashion, beauty and commercial photographer from New York City decided to do something about it. No, not negotiate a cheaper deal but design an inflatable photo studio - now why didn't I think of that.......

What Is It?


Well, it is made from a 6-10 mm tough thick plastic that's welded together at the seams. It folds up to a 2'x2'x4' box and weighs 40 lbs. There are several standard sizes of studio available to buy, although you can order your very own bespoke size. The larger standard size one has two entrances at either side. Its got reinforced flooring but will need to be placed on a hard surface, so forget about placing it on the lawn. Soft ground will increase backdrop wrinkles and puncture from high heels, unless of course, you put a board underneath. There's an air vent on the left side to allow for the inflow of air from the fan that can be moved to or away from the model.

How Much Will It Cost You?


The large inflatable photo studio with fan will cost you $499 and without the fan $349. The smaller studio with a fan is $399 and without $329, or you can buy both with fans for $749 or without for $449. The photo studio comes with a one year guarantee and the fans are covered by their own manufacturers warranty.

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of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy.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