  • Review: Jobo photoGPS for Digital Cameras

    Mar 31st, 2009  |  72 Comments

    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 assistantContinue…

  • Follow-up to my Elinchrom BXRI 500 Strobes Review

    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 keepContinue…
