In an industry where we are constantly bombarded with new “gadgets” one has come along that is truly unique. The Pixelstick is nothing short of amazing. A killer combination of tech and ingenuity this tool is going to change the way people make light painting images.
Honestly all you have to do is watch the kickstarter campaign video to understand how truly amazing this is. It’s one of those things that once you see it you get it.
I got in touch with the founders of the Pixelstick to find out more about their creation. These are two guys who had an idea, built it and brought to to market. At the time of recording they were two sales shy of $400,000 and have since blown past that number.
All I can say is we live in such an amazing time where if you can think it and build it, someone will stand behind you and purchase it. If you could like to pre order a pixelstick you can do so right here.
Check out the kickstarter campaign video below.
Follow me as I take you booth to booth at the 2013 PPE Show in NYC in October. Like most of my videos this is not your typical show coverage video where booth people try and sell you on how amazing everything is.
My goal with videos like these is bring you to the show and give you a feel of what it’s like to be on the floor in a crush of people.
I take you to check out the Nikon, Sony, ThinkTank, BlackRapid and a bunch of other random booths as well as stop to interview a few people.
How many times have you been out and about shooting and it starts raining? Do you continue to shoot and risk the rain damaging your camera? Do you attempt to modify a trash bag or plastic bag to work on your camera?
Well I have a solution for you that is not only inexpensive but it works. Sure you could spend upwards of $200 for a high end reusable rain cover for your camera. But I have found an option that is only $5.
As you see in the video this simple plastic sleeve is designed to allow you to protect your camera and lens as well as still be able to capture images.
I keep a pack of these in my bag at all times because you never know when a sudden storm may strike. Don’t forget this is not just for rain, I would use this in dusty environments like on the beach or on a construction site. Whatever you can do to protect your camera from the elements
is always a plus.
Here we have a very interesting cross section of images. We go from your basic portraits to some pretty freaky and scary images. Of course I was not scare by them I was more intrigued.
To me in a set of 10 if you have four solid solid images you are on the right path. Im baseball you are considered a star if you could ever be 4-10.
