1. On September 2, 2010 I drove to NYC to Canon Expo 2010 to view new technology that will help to shape the future of imaging over the next five years. I will be posting a video from the show very shortly.

    After the show Canon DSLR users were invited to get together for a NYC DSLR meetup held at the Lucky X Lanes on 42nd Street. It was great to meet so many filmmakers, videographers and photographers that I have been following online. Shane Hurlbut, ASC and Philip Bloom were just two of the many HDSLR celebrities that bowled the night away.

  2. Clik Elite is a company that specializes in photography bags for adventure photographers. Their bags are rugged, water resistant and uniquely designed for the needs of hikers, backpackers, and other adventure seekers.

    The BodyPod was designed to fit a DSLR with 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. The case is worn as a backpack but can be turned around and worn in the front in order to mount your camera on the stabilizing frame for steady telephoto photography and video - without the need to lug a tripod and with more flexibility than a monopod.

  3. Get a first look at the new Genus GVISTA Prism Viewfinder for DSLR's. What's unique about this item is that it attaches around your camera's 3" LCD screen and with the magic of mirrors allows you to view the screen from above, below or from the sides.

    This is available via Adorama for $39.95 (as of 7/21/2010)

    This a great low-cost way of viewing your LCD when doing low slider / dolly shots with your HDSLR. When the need arises to shoot above the crowd just attach it in upside down and you'll be able to view it from below. At $39.95 this is a pretty cheap piece of gear to have along side your Canon EOS 7D, Rebel T2i, EOS 5D Mark II, 1D Mark IV, Nikon D5000, D90, D300s or D3s.

    When mine arrived two of the mirror inserts were loose and needed to be glued back in place. Also, each viewfinder comes in their own protective hard case, but the viewfinders are square and rather bulky, so they will eat us space in your gear bag. But for $40 why complain.
