Kickstarter: The Ultimate Lens Hood



The Ultimate Lens Hood is a new camera accessory that helps you shoot through glass without reflections. It’s a versatile collapsing silicone cone that can stretch to fit all kinds of camera lenses.

Removing glare by day and reflections by night, the ULH can be used any time you need it. Whether you're shooting through a hotel window, a high-rise observation deck, the window of a bus or through an enclosure at the zoo - the ULH makes a massive difference, transforming a bad photo into a great one even before you start editing!
  • Fits to your lens, rather than attaching to the glass. This means you're free to move around, change your angle and adjust your camera settings without having to detach anything.
  • Leaves no marks on the window. This'll keep you on the good side of venue managers and their staff! The ULH is made of silicone, and is designed to rest against the glass, rather than attach to it.
  • Perfect for crowded areas. Often the busiest tourist attractions leave very little room - or time - for great images. With the ULH on your lens, you take up no more room than you would normally, but your photos will come out better than anyone else's.
  • Get drone-looking shots, without a drone. Ok, this one is a bit of a stretch, but you'll get such clear photos out of high-rise buildings that people won't believe they were taken through glass at all. Most cities around the world have banned the use of drones, so this is your next best option to get those cityscape bangers! (also works through helicopter windows...)
  • Much more effective than a CPL. Polarising filters are known to modify and remove some reflections at certain angles but don't work to fully block the glare (especially at night). A good quality CPL is expensive, they change the colours in your photo and you'll need adapter rings to fit them to all your lenses. If you already own a CPL, add the ULH to your kit bag and get the best of both! (and the added weatherproofing the ULH provides!)

The standard ULH was designed for DSLR and mirrorless camera lenses, stretching to fit the barrels of even large telephoto lenses (60mm diameter and up). There’s also a ULHmini that’s designed for smartphone lenses and smaller digital cameras (30mm to 60mm).


The flexible nature of the ULH allows you to move the camera around and shoot at different angles while the lens hood is pressed firmly against the glass you’re shooting through.


Attaching the ULH backward onto your lens allows it to serve as lens protection, keeping things like water, snow, mud, sand, dirt, and dust from hitting your lens body.

The Ultimate Lens Hood on Kickstarter, has already surpassed its initial $10,000 goal. A pledge of $26 will get you a ULHminis, and a pledge of about $39 will get you a full-sized ULH. $59 will get you one of each. Expected ship date is October 2018.

Press Release: Nikon Teases Full Frame Mirrorless Camera



Nikon has released an official press release to their full frame mirrorless camera.

This bag can really fit anyone’s needs. Whether you’re a weekend warrior, backpack across Europe, or a gear haulin’ photographer, you’ll be able to carry it all.

The first product in their Travel Line is the Travel Backpack 45L (MSRP: $299.95); a complete system of Packing Tools. With a focus on versatility, organization, and access, the Travel Line aims to satisfy a simple design directive: no two trips are the same, so the best luggage should adapt to them all.

Wash Pouch (MSRP: $59.95) – Dedicated, easy-to-clean pockets for toothbrush and razor. Hangs or sits upright on sink for easy access in tight spaces. Unique folding pocket layout keeps toiletries neatly organized and easy to find.

Kickstarter: Steadify Wearable Stabilizer Tripod for Cameras, Binoculars, Scopes



STEADIFY - you are the tripod. The first wearable stabilizer for cameras, binoculars, scopes. No more blurry images or missed moments.

We were contacted about a new product that just launched on Kickstarter called Steadify. It's a wearable stabilizer tripod for cameras, binoculars and scopes. No more lugging around tripods when you are trying to shoot on the fly. This is great if you're trying to take a photo where tripods are banned or if space is limited.

A one-handed single twist unlocks and locks Steadify’s monopod elements to its desired length. The fork-shaped mount on top is designed to reliably accommodate any device, letting it pan and tilt in all desired directions. The effect is instantly tangible and a truly stunning experience. Further, Steadify will handle the weight of your device so you can hold it for hours without tiring. The comfortable baseplate completely absorbs the weight of your gear. This is good news for wildlife photographers and filmmakers, for bird watchers, and hunters.

Steadify also functions as a jib arm for smooth vertical and horizontal camera movements, a bonus usually found in more lavish equipment. For cameramen, this feature adds life and dynamic to footage that can make a scene stand out.

There is a limited number of Early Birds at $99 for the Steadify only and $159 for the Steadify Bundle which includes a ballhead with Arca quick release and Pocket Clip to store batteries, memory cards and money. It will retail for $159.99 and $209.99, respectively, once the campaign has ended.

We'll try to get our hands on one and hopefully give you a full review. Let us know your thoughts or questions.

Press Release: Loupedeck+ Photo Editing Console is Even More Versatile and Works with Lightroom and Skylum Aurora



Loupedeck made a splash when they released custom photo editing console for Lightroom back in 2016. The company just announced the original console’s successor: the Loupedeck+.

While the original Loupedeck was designed specifically for Lightroom (Amazon / B&H Photo / Adorama) editing, the Loupedeck+ is compatible with Skylum’s (formerly known as Macphun) popular Aurora HDR photo editing software. Loupedeck has actually entered into a partnership agreement with Skylum and will be supporting the company’s other photo editing products (e.g. Luminar) as well.

Loupedeck+ is in beta integration with Capture One, and full integration with the software is “on the way,” the company says. There are also additional software integrations that will be announced later this year.


When compared to the original Loupedeck, the console has also been improved with more functionality, control, and customization, all based on feedback received from the photography community.


The keys on the Loupedeck+ are now mechanical, providing a more precise touch and a more sturdy feel — the overall build quality of the console has been beefed up as well. There are also two dedicated customizable dials and seventeen buttons, and a “Custom Mode” allows users to fully control all dials.

The configuration software has been rebuilt from scratch, providing a photo experience that’s both faster and more stable than before.


The Loupedeck+ is available for purchase in the Loupedeck Online Store, B&H Photo and Amazon.com for $229. Loupedeck is also offering a cashback opportunity of $50 for current Loupedeck owners.

HELSINKI, Finland – June 20, 2018 – Loupedeck, the custom photo editing console built with an intuitive design that makes editing faster and more creative, has announced the next evolution, Loupedeck+. While the Loupedeck was the only device on the market custom-built to improve the Adobe Lightroom experience, the Loupedeck+ is now also compatible with popular photo editing software Skylum Aurora HDR (in addition to Adobe Lightroom Classic CC), and is designed with more functionalities, control and increased customization options. Following a year of overwhelming success and customer feedback, the Loupedeck+ was designed in Loupedeck’s headquarters in Finland, with all updates solely based on feedback from the invested photography community.

Specifically, upgrades to the Loupedeck+ include:
  • Mechanical keys with a more precise and sturdy feel
  • Improved build quality
  • Two dedicated customizable dials and seventeen buttons
  • “Custom Mode” that allows full user control of all dials
  • Configuration software built from scratch for an even better, faster and more stable photo editing experience
“We know how dedicated both the professional and amateur photography communities are in their work, and we’re committed to making their lives easier and more productive,” said Mikko Kesti, Founder and CEO of Loupedeck. “There’s no better way to create the next evolution of our flagship product than by going straight to the source and taking their feedback to heart. By adding even more control, efficiency and customization options to the editing process, we’re able to help photographers be more successful by increasing their output and artistry, and look forward to continue supporting them in their work.”

Following Loupedeck’s new partnership with Skylum, the Loupedeck+ will include future integrations with Skylum’s other professional photo editing products, including Skylum Luminar. It is also currently in beta integration with Capture One, with full integration on the way, as well as additional software integrations to follow later this year. These options will provide photographers with a more diverse, intuitive experience, helping to expedite the editing process and maximize the photo editing experience.

“Skylum and Loupedeck share the same vision. We want to help photographers create great photos, differently,” said Alex Tsepko, CEO of Sklyum. “When I discovered that the new version of Loupedeck keyboard is coming out, I knew Skylum software should be the first to support it. This is the kind of innovation modern photographers really need.”

The Loupedeck+ is available for purchase in the Loupedeck Online Store, B&H Photo and Amazon.com for $229. Loupedeck is also offering a cashback opportunity of $50 for current Loupedeck owners.

The updated 70-200mm F4's stabilization system is quieter, and now features three modes, designed specifically for shooting still and moving subjects. The F4L weighs in at 780g and is 40g heavier than its predecessor. Optical construction comprises 20 elements in 15 groups, and the inclusion of Canon's Super Spectra Coating should help minimize ghosts and flare.

The Canon EF 70-200mm F2.8L IS III USM will be available in August for $2,099 while the Canon EF 70-200mm F4L IS II USM will be available later this month for $1299.

Press Release: Sony Announces Cyber-shot RX100 VI with 24-200mm Zoom



Today, Sony has announced the Cyber-shot RX100 VI, a 1"-type compact camera with a 20.1-megapixel Exmor RS stacked CMOS sensor, 24-200mm F2.8-4.5 zoom lens, 315 phase detection points covering approximately 65% of the sensor, and the ability to shoot at 24 fps with autofocus.

The RX100 VI becomes the first in the Cyber-shot RX100-series to gain a touchscreen, allowing both touch shutter and touch focus. The screen can tilt up to 180 degree upwards and 90 degree downwards, extending shooting flexibility.

The RX100 VI's 24-200mm lens comprises 15 elements in 12 groups, featuring two ED (extra-low dispersion) aspherical glass elements and eight aspherical lens elements including four AA (advanced aspherical) lenses. Sony describes the pocketable camera as having "two lenses worth of interchangeable lens", incorporating the range of a 24-70mm lens and a 70-200mm in one "do anything" camera.

The RX100 VI's XGA OLED pop-up EVF is similar to previous models in the series, but once popped-up, the finder optics no longer need to be manually extended for use.

On the video front, the RX100 VI is capable of full-width, oversampled 4K video with support for 8-bit HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) for easy HDR capture. The RX100 VI is also able to record superslow motion video at either 250, 500 or 1000 fps.


The new Sony Cyber-shot RX100 VI will ship next month, priced at $1200. You can place your preorder from B&H Photo or Adorama.

Sony also announced the VCT-SGR1 shooting grip, designed for the RX0 and RX100-series cameras. The VCT-SGR1 includes camera controls, an adjustable head and built-in tripod. It will be available in September for around $100. You can place your preorder from B&H Photo or Adorama.
