Fuji Instax Unboxing and Sniff Test

Jared Polin February 21, 2012 Comments Off

The Fuji Instax is an interesting throwback camera to the days where the only way to get to see your pictures right after you took them was to use instant film. Fuji has brought back the instant camera with their line of instax cameras. These cameras allow you to use Fuji Instax film to take instant (takes up to 5 min to develop) photos.

I am sure there are many people sitting there going why would I want to take instant pictures these days? And I will say I felt the same way until I started to have fun with this camera. It is a conversation starter at parties and event. When I take someones picture and they see the photo pop out the top they go wow what is that. Beyond that these photos make for really unique business cards. What better way to make an impression on someone than to hand them a photo with your information on it.

I will be taking a few of these instax cameras on the road to SXSW along with a case of instant film to see what we come up with. You will get a chance to try these cameras out on the two photo walks.

To see a FULL on photo shoot done with the fuji instax check out the video player below.

Westcott UnBoxing and Sniff Test

Jared Polin December 13, 2011 Comments Off

As you can tell from the video I received a huge shipment of gear from a company called Westcott. Westcott specializes in professional lighting for photography and video.

I decided to pick up a lot of this equipment to help dive back into studio lighting and pick up gear to help me with off camera speedlights. What is great about this Westcott gear is they have everything for professionals and a whole lineup called “Photo Basics” which is designed to get you into the game at affordable prices.

Over the next few months I will take each piece of gear that you see here and give it its on review and demonstration video. This way we all can see exactly what each accessorie does and if it is for you.

AllensCamera is your place for all Westcott gear. They carry everything that you see in this video so please give them a call 215.547.2841

Nikon 1 NIKKOR 10-100mm Lens Review

Jared Polin November 29, 2011 Comments Off

I got my hands on this new Nikon 10-100mm Powered Zoom Lens to unbox, sniff and take a few test shots. What an interesting hunk of glass especially for $750. It is both interesting because it is a powered zoom that is silent and the fact that it is such a large lens on such a small body.

Do you own a Nikon 1 System?

View Results

Even though this lens is large and has some weight to it, it did not make the J1 seem any less balanced in my hands. You have the ability to control the speed of the zoom, it can be smooth or it can snap in and out very fast.

As you can see in the images here I show you what it looks like at 10mm as well as 100mm. If you do not mind carrying around a large lens on the J1 or V1 this could be the only lens you may need for this camera for a long time.

Being that this camera is designed for amateurs and not pros I can live with the slower aperture. We all have to keep in mind that this camera is not designed for us to go and shoot our pro jobs, its more for carrying around to capture some video and snap shots.

Camera Gear – What is a LensCoat

Jared Polin November 23, 2011 Comments Off

Today we are looking at a product called a LensCoat. A lens coat protects your lens from the elements or in many cases helps you blend into your environment. Before I get into what they are used for I want to talk about the company itself.

Lens coat is a mom and pop business, it started with an idea and now its gone global with the help of being in some of the largest camera stores. There are even companies out there who make knock offs and are trying to piggyback off of lens coats success. I love stories like this, where the little guy is able to turn something small into something very successful while still being a mom and pop business.

Intro to Flash Photography – LumoPro LP160 Unboxing

Adam Lerner November 16, 2011 Comments Off

Many of you guys have been asking me about affordable off-camera speedlights. At the recent PhotoPlus Expo in NYC, I met Moishe from Midwest Photo Exchange, www.mpex.com, who sent me a couple of their flagship speedlights, the Lumopro 160.

What off camera flash do you use?

View Results

The Lumopro 160 has the same power output as a Canon 580 EXII or Nikon SB900! It’s about the same size as those flashes as well and beside being compatible with your Nikon or Canon DSLR, you can use this with an incredible range of cameras depending on how you sync.

Datacolor Spyder 3 Elite Unbox and Sniff Test

Jared Polin November 16, 2011 Comments Off

At Photo Plus in NYC a few weeks back I made it a point to seek out Datacolor the makers of the SPYDER monitor calibrator to get as much information as possible and a test unit.

Do you color calibrate?

View Results

There have been hundreds of questions that have come in asking if I calibrate my monitor and if I do how important is it. Well the honest answer is I have never calibrated my monitor and I do have a few reasons for that. One I have never purchased any device to do so. Two I do not do a ton of printing where I would need to match my screen to my printers color profile (more on this lower). Three I felt that if I calibrate my monitor and place my images online 99% of the world who does not calibrate their monitors still wont see so called “proper color”.

Nikon J1 Un Box and Sniff Test

Jared Polin October 17, 2011 Comments Off

Last week the Nikon J1 and 3 lenses landed on my doorstep.

I have been walking around with the camera and lenses for the past week or so testing it out and trying to see if it is something I would use or suggest for others to use.

So far after shooting with the longer “slow” lens at an event yesterday I see that it is very hard to shoot with the longer lenses. One issue I had was my arms get tired holding the camera out infront of me. Sure there is a zoom but indoors it was very hard to try and shoot with the 30-110 3.5-5.6 lens.

I will keep playing with the camera and give the images a look online.
