Adorama News: Cool Small Flash News, New CoolPix and Think Tank Backpack
By Jeff Snyder

Photo by
New from PocketWizard, the MiniTT1 Transmitters and Flex TT5 Transceivers. Way cool units…

The smallest PocketWizard radio ever, the MiniTT1™ Transmitter locks onto the camera's hot shoe supporting an on-camera flash with its own hot shoe while working with remote PocketWizard units. Remotes can be one or more PocketWizard FlexTT5™ Transceivers connected to Canon E-TTL II flashes or any PocketWizard Receiver for triggering flash or remote cameras.

The dedicated FlexTT5™ Transceiver, with its built in hot-shoe and ControlTL™ firmware, is the perfect addition to Canon E-TTL II flash systems. The FlexTT5 takes the existing benefits of Canon wireless systems beyond the boundaries of infrared technology. When paired with the Mini TT1™ Transmitter or another FlexTT5 Transceiver, a whole new world of wireless flash freedom opens up. The FlexTT5 is also the perfect Transceiver for your manual triggering needs and works with all MultiMAX channels and many of the MultiMAX advanced functions.

Speaking of Shoe Mount Strobes...Joe McNally's new book, "The Hot Shoe Diaries", Big Light from small flashes, will be released in March. Last I looked on Amazon, the book is selling like crazy...If you shoot Nikon strobes, you will want to pick this up, don't walk.

Bogen's NEW "Tri-Flash" bracket is finally here! Now you can mount three shoe-mount strobes on one bracket, for that studio on the go with more power...These should be available in March.

Think Tank has a pile of products, but the most exciting to me is the "Shape Shifter" Backpack. It expands & contracts to fit your equipment! You'll love this case...Also, take a good hard look at the new "Urban Disguise 35", which holds up to a 13.3" laptop, standard size SLR with a long zoom attached, plus plenty of pockets!

Lots of new Nikon CoolPix cameras released in the past few weeks, take a look at the new S630 (I like it)..Nikon's D3X remains hot, and the images I've seen have a huge "WOW" factor. Nikon has also introduced a 35mm f1.8 G lens. So for all the D300/D200 users, this is a great deal for a wide fast lens at $199, yes, $199

Canon's 5D Mark II continues to be one of the most popular D-SLR's that I can remember. We have been getting a great supply, and turning around orders as fast as possible. So if you're still waiting to find one, let me know, and I'll see what I can do to expedite delivery for you.

Keep in mind that "Refurbished" gear from both Canon & Nikon hit our warehouse on a regular basis from top of the line bodies to lenses to point & shoot cameras. If you are looking to save some $$, always check in with me first...There have been some really great deals out there.

Orbis Ring Flash is here! Turn your Nikon or Canon shoe mount strobe into a Ring Flash with ease. The ORBIS turns your standard SLR Flash/Strobe into a Ring Flash for fast, easy, beautiful, shadowless lighting effects using the equipment you already own...Now in stock at Adorama.
