    The rumor mill was right on the money----today (as expected) Nikon did introduce a new entry-level DSLR---the Nikon D-5000 (shown above; photos courtesy of Nikon), which includes the ability to shoot HD video (like the D90), but it also includes a new swivel Vari-angle screen on the back, along with "Subject Tracking autofocus which automatically locks onto a moving subject." Plus, according to Nikon, "The D5000’s D-Movie Mode allows users the exciting ability to record HD movie clips (1280 x 720) at a cinematic 24 frames per second with sound." Although the big buzz will be about the video features (your video writes to an SD card), the camera itself is no slouch, at 12.3 megapixel CMOS sensor, 11-point auto focus, 19-scene modes, built-in self cleaning function, ISO up to 6400 (no word yet on noise levels), 4 fps continous shooting, blah, blah, blah----you…

    I know a lot of people have been after me to test the Jobo photoGPS unit, so when I did the shoot of Tiger Woods at Tavistock a couple of weeks ago, I took the photoGPS along to give it a real world in-field test. After testing it for a while, I called my assistant Brad Moore, who was back at the office, and I said, "Brad, you can't imagine how much I hate this thing." Three Strikes is Not Enough! Usually, if a product has three strikes against it, that's enough for me, but this one already had two strike against it before I even left my office so I thought I'd go ahead and give it extra room for a few more strikes just in case it turned out to be worth it in the end. I really wanted to have an…

    After I posted my video review of the Elinchrom BXRI-500 strobes earlier this week, I was contacted by the folks at Bogen Imaging (who distribute Elinchrom gear here in the US), and who watched my review and saw that one of my few minor "dings" about them was the fact that you needed to keep the instruction manual around for assigning groups. They let me know that they had created a downloadable quick chart (in PDF format) that BXRI users can now download, which has all the programmable controls laid out in a very simple and easy-to-use format (plus, the chart includes more than just how to assign groups). You can download their free quick chart right here. My hat's off to Bogen for making this available so quickly (I'm going to print and laminate two of them, then attach them to the lightstands…

    This quote comes from Terry White from a review on his Tech Blog of the new Nikon P6000 point and shoot compact digital camera (here's the link). Terry at some point in his review was going to mention that this camera from Nikon was probably positioned as an answer to Canon's popular G9 and G10 compacts, and just mentioning that can bring some harsh comments, so so he wisely included a disclaimer right up front that basically said he didn't want to turn this into a "Nikon vs. Canon" thing. Then came his short and sweet "quote of the week," which was: "...does anyone ever win those anyway?" He's absolutely right! Have you ever read a forum with people arguing back and forth on Nikon vs. Canon (or Mac vs. PC, or Ford vs. Chevy), where one person or the other finally says, "Ya…

    I've been working with the newly introduced Elinchrom BXRI-500 studio strobes, and I did a video review for you guys (below) to look at the pros and cons of this new mid-level set-up. Here's the link to the complete Elinchrom BXRI 500 kit at B&H Photo (They currently show it selling for $1550, with two 500 watt strobes, two 20" softboxes, two 9' light stands, the wireless transmitter, two cases, etc.). Here's the kit with 1-500 and 1-250 (but still includes all the other stuff). Here's the kit with two 250s. (also includes all the other stuff). NOTE: There's only a $200 difference between the two 250s and two 500 watt system. There's only $100 between the one with one 500 and one 250, and the two 500 watt kit. In short; spend the extra money and get the two 500-watt strobes system. VIDEO:…

    Hi Gang: I'm trying to wrap up my book by Friday, so in the interest of making that happen, here is an abbrevited news thingy: I didn't get to field test the Jobo GPS this week like I had hoped. Maybe next week. Come to my Lightroom seminars in Denver and Portland, Oregon. (link) This photographer rocks (link) I finally broke down and bought an Elinchrom Beautydish. Go visit Zack's blog (link) Just two days left to save $100 on Early Bird Registration for Photoshop World (link). PLUS: Scriv put together a new teaser with our football theme, and it's pretty cool, so stop by the site and check it out. Jessica is working on a new cover for the CS4 Down & Dirty Tricks book, and I saw an early proof of it today. She's rocks! It made me really glad that we…
