LowePro photography gear

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Friday 6th, March 2009

Lowepro, a product design company that builds protective gear for photography equipment and portable electronics, announces the launch of its newest toploading camera bag series. Toploader Pro AW is built for the pro who requires fast access, agility and flexibility while on assignment. The contoured, asymmetrical shape of Toploader Pro AW follows the lines of a pro digital SLR camera for a snug, protective fit. Complementing this lean profile is the side opening with easy-grip access; the camera sits sideways making it easy to grab, shoot and put back. Lowepro’s quick-release buckle allows the photographer to close the bag without zipping it, enabling fast access plus security while on the move.

Apple iPhone lithium-ion battery pack

Posted by: Dennis Hissink Tuesday 7th, August 2007

Electric car pioneer ZAP says its iZAP battery designed for the Apple iPod is more useful for the energy intensive Apple iPhone. "The iZAP battery was a life-saver during my business trip to China last week," said Apple iPhone owner Steve Schneider, Chief Executive Officer for ZAP. "Frankly, if an Apple iPod runs out of power, losing your music and photo or video is not as critical to your business trip as the Apple iPhone. You lose your cell phone access, text messages, Internet and email access, time zone clock, business notes, scheduling software, driving maps, calculator and all the other news and information for which the Apple iPhone was designed."

At the stand of Jobo I had a chat with Annika Hummerich of Jobo Germany. There were several products showcased at the Jobo stand amongst them a pre-production model of a interesting device for the professional photographer. The Jobo photoGPS is a GPS device that is mounted on the hot-shoe of a SLR camera and is able to get you GPS data that will be inserted into your Exif automatically.

Posted by: Mark Peters Monday 12th, March 2007

Last year it was the Popabrella which made me smile, at this years PMA 2007 show it is the new Probrella that made my day. Sometimes you see one of those gadgets that after thinking of it are not a bad idea at all. The Probrella could be the solution for those out there who have always the 'luck' taking their favorable moments in the middle of the rain. Although it is claimed to be aimed at the professional photographer I cannot help it to think that it is hard to believe seeing a professional out there in the field with the Probrella attached to his professional SLR camera. But who knows, it could also be me that is 'old fashioned' The Probrella is for me the gadget of the today's PMA 2007!

Without accessories, a professional photographer cannot do his job. Also, the consumer using his camera for private use requires accessories. The PMA 2011 show offers a wide range of all kinds of accessories, allowing the best experience for digital photography. A DSLR or compact camera without a memory card is useless, and the offer of flash memory cards also meets the needs of consumers. Fast and high capacity cards for the pro, and cheap memory cards for the snapshots of the consumer, are also among the standard accessories for photography. GPS and navigation appear to be adopted by the photo industry more and more. The integration of GPS into cameras does not happen all that fast, yet it seems that 2011 will signal a breakthrough. The PMA International Convention and Trade Show also provide an overview of new bags, tripods, lenses, flash units, etc.
