Today I got to unbox the Nikon D800 at AllensCamera.com.
This is one of the most anticipated Nikon cameras of all time. It is an affordable FX, high megapixel, responsibly HIGH ISO capability DSLR camera with solid Video.
The still and video features of this camera defiantly make a mark. Be sure to check out my D800 sample files which is linked in this video.
I know there have been a lot of unboxing videos this week but there is only one more NEW camera on its way and thats the Canon 1DX

As always when something new comes into Allen’s Camera (allenscamera.com) I get the important call to Unbox and Sniff Test the camera.
When it comes to these new cameras I am not allowed to fire them off, just unbox and sniff them. This time around I lucked out when an Allen’s customer came in to purchase two cameras I asked for permission to run some sample photos and videos. In exchange for an I Shoot RAW T-Shirt and BlackRapid strap he said yes!!!!
I really loved the feel of this camera in my hands. The new rubberized feeling really made the camera a joy to hold, along with some newly placed buttons.Read More »

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.

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.Read More »
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.Read More »
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.
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.
