Kickstarter: Alpine Labs Pulse

We were informed of a new Kickstarter project known as Pulse from Alpine Labs. This is Alpine Labs 3rd Kickstarter project. Pulse is the most powerful way to control your camera from your smartphone. Pulse plugs into your DSLR or Mirrorless camera's USB port, so whether you're shooting photos, time lapse, or video, you get complete creative freedom - remotely from your smartphone - with your current camera.

As of this post, there is about two weeks left to the campaign. The Early Bird ($69) has sold out but you can still purchase the Pulse for $74. That's a $25 savings from the retail price. It ships in April 2016. If you want it sooner, you can be a Beta Tester which would get you the Pulse by February 2016. However, this set you back $350. But like any crowdfunding project that shipping time frame can happen or if something happens during production or manufacturing, this can push the deadline back.

Continue reading for more information.

Light & Powerful
Pulse's strength comes from its 100' bluetooth low energy radio, advanced USB control software, and a beautifully designed interface. We wanted a product that could handle your biggest project ideas - from day-long time lapses to your next backpacking trip. Because of its size you can take Pulse anywhere, and thanks to what it can do you'll never want to leave it behind.

Wireless Image Preview
With image preview you can view thumbnails on your phone right after you take a photo, at a range of up to 100 feet. Whether your camera is sticking out a 5th floor window or you're warming up while it braves the cold, Pulse has you covered so you can still get the perfect shot.

Compatible with Canon & Nikon
Pulse plugs into your camera's USB port and is compatible with just about any Canon or Nikon DSLR, and the Pulse app is free for both iPhone and Android devices. Want to confirm that your camera is compatible? Check the FAQ page.

Want Pulse to work with your Sony camera?! So do we! See the FAQ for the full explanation.

Trigger Remotely
Whether you're part of the shot, or not, there are a lot of times where it is just nice not to have to stand behind your camera. With Pulse, you can set up your camera and trigger it from anywhere in the room. Pulse's Bluetooth connection allows you to roam as you need to and gives you a range of up to 100 feet from your camera.

Capture the Night
Shooting in low light requires you to keep your camera absolutely still. Pulse makes it easier than ever to get the shot you want, and allows you to leave your shutter open for up to several hours, or as little as a few seconds. In long exposure mode you can either lock the shutter down manually and then release it, or set the exposure to a timer and just let it count down until it is finished.

And don't worry! The light on Pulse blinks before it takes a photo so that it won't mess up the lighting of your shot, and you can always turn it off or dim it if needed.

Take Better Timelapse
We've spent the last 4 years making the smartest time lapse products on the market. Pulse builds on all of our previous work, and makes time lapse easier than ever for first timers whilst expanding the features and level of control for experienced shooters.

One of the biggest issues with traditional triggers is the inability to know when things have gone wrong. With Pulse's USB control your camera will get every single frame, and the app will let you know about problems (like low battery or buffering time) before they ruin your shoot.

Start & Stop Video
Most remote triggers only let you do one thing - take photos. Because Pulse plugs into your camera's USB port and not the trigger port, it has the ability to let you control video as well.

Control Multiple Cameras
Pulse allows you to control up to three Pulse-equipped cameras at once - all from the same smartphone. This is especially useful for independent film makers or really anyone who has more cameras than they have camera hands. With Pulse, you can be everywhere at once and make sure you get all the right angles for your shot, even if you are just a crew of one.

Timelapse the Sunrise
Pulse's Exposure Ramping features allows you to ramp your ISO and shutter speed so that you can capture day-to-night transitions (the "Holy Grail" of time lapses) without having to touch your camera. We've designed this feature specifically to work with LRTimelapse.

Unlike shooting in Aperture or Shutter Priority, Exposure Ramping keeps your camera in manual so that your photo's EXIF-Data is written properly for LRTimelapse workflows.

Kickstarter: Custom SLR Slim Strap - Minimalist Leather Camera Strap

Our good friends over at Custom SLR has just kicked off their 6th crowdfunding campaign with a versatile camera strap with quick-adjust slider and genuine leather. This strap is called the Slim Strap. It's great for mirrorless, micro four thirds, and compact cameras.

If you haven't heard about Custom SLR, like most small startup companies, they go to Kickstarter. All five of their previous projects were successfully funded. Custom SLR has made a name for itself in creating comfortable and innovative camera straps, from their Glide One Strap (ranked Best in Test by Advanced Photographer Magazine) to their Air Strap (which reached 880% of its funding goal on Kickstarter).

The Slim Strap is a minimalist leather camera strap. Its features include:
  • Genuine top grain leather on the shoulder pad, strap connectors and thumb loop.
  • Quick-adjust slider: Camera stays cinched securely at your side; to quickly snap a photo, just pull and slide.
  • Lightweight and compact: Its slim design make it perfect for photographers needing a lightweight yet comfortable strap solution.
  • Great for mirrorless, micro four thirds and compact cameras but also compatible with all cameras including DSLRs.

Early Bird special is starts at $27. You can also purchase bundles that include items such as C-Loop Mini for as low as $45 up to $300 which includes Slim Strap, C-Loop, M-Plate Pro, ProDots and dinner.

Bye Bye, Bulky Camera Straps

This one's for the adventurers. The explorers. The ones who dare to do things differently. You don't need another bulky camera strap holding you back. You need a lightweight strap that makes capturing life's moments effortless.

Introducing the Slim Strap, a minimalist sling strap made for mirrorless, micro four thirds, and compact cameras (also works great for DSLRs). Premium leather, low-profile black, and a unique quick-adjust slider make this a classy strap you'll be proud to wear.

Genuine Top Grain Leather

The Slim Strap features genuine top grain leather parts: On the shoulder pad, strap connectors and thumb loop. As time passes, the leather will conform more to the contours of your shoulder. The older it gets, the better it gets.

Quick-Adjust Slider

Never miss a moment. The Slim Strap keeps your camera cinched securely at your side; when you need to take a photo, just pull the leather loop and slide to quickly bring your camera up for the shot. The leather shoulder pad never leaves your shoulder.

Lightweight and compact

On the road and on the go, the Slim Strap is lightweight, compact, and ready for any adventure.

High-Quality Craftsmanship

The Slim Strap webbing is seatbelt grade; the material is smooth and durable. Genuine Duraflex buckles and micro loops quickly and securely attach to any strap mounting point. The Slim Strap is sewn together with the perfect combination of stitches.

Minimal Branding

No flashy logos here. Keep it classy with the sleek black of the Slim Strap.

Kickstarter: Breakthrough Photography X3 Circular Polarizer Filter

Breakthrough Photography, a San Francisco-based startup company has just launched what they are calling “the world’s sharpest and most color neutral circular polarizer”. This isn't their first filter as they finished a very successful Kickstarter campaign back in December 2014, for their then-new collection of neutral density and circular polarizer filters.

The new filter that is currently funded on Kickstarter, is called the X3. This circular polarizer utilizes an almost identical design to Breakthrough Photography’s previous model, including the use of CNC machined brass with an electroplated matte black finish on the threads.
  • American-made CPL film called CrystalVision®
  • SCHOTT B270® Optical glass Made in Germany
  • 16-layers of multi-resistant coatings
  • Nano coatings to repel elements
  • Ultra-slim Weather-sealed Brass “Traction Frame”
  • 25 Year Guarantee
  • 11 sizes from 39mm to 105mm ($129 to $199)

Continue reading for more information.

Breakthrough Photography uses Schott B270 optical glass from Germany, with MRC16 coatings for reducing reflections and nanotec coatings, which are said to help repel dirt and water.

At the core of the X3 Circular Polarizer is a CrystalVision CPL film, said to be the key to giving the most color neutral image possible without a decline in quality across the board.

The X3 has already far surpassed its funding goal and comes in twelve different sizes: 39mm, 46mm, 49mm, 52mm, 58mm, 62mm, 67mm, 72mm, 77mm, 82mm, 95mm and 105mm.

At the time of this post, there is only 7 days left. Unfortunately, a handful of sizes are already sold out through Kickstarter, but you can still get your hands on what models remains, whose prices range from $89 to $159. By placing your order through Kickstarter, you're saving $30-$50 off MSRP.

Breakthrough Photography filters are also available at Amazon, B&H Photo, Adorama and on their own website. The new filters will definitely make its way to these sites once its officially available.

Filters are estimated to start shipping in December 2015.
