Review: Micromuff

Read more... DSLRs weren't designed with video in mind, and the best results are typically only obtained when the right accessories are used. An appropriate support is recommended for both convenient operation and steady footage, while an external microphone will provide superior sound quality to the camera's built-in alternative. Naturally, you need to pay for both, and for most casual users these options either won't be practical or will simply cost too

As any photographer's assistant will attest, holding reflectors and diffusers for prolonged periods of time isn't exactly comfortable, and many aren't rigid enough to be held with just one hand. The Lastolite TriGrip 1-stop Diffuser claims to solve both issues, with a handle on one side and two adjustable straps that may be tightened against the holder's

Review: Lastolite Ezybox Hotshoe

Read more... Although flashguns are eminently useful for all kinds of photography, their light can often be too harsh when they're pointed directly at your subject. Built-in reflector cards and diffuser panels enable light to be bounced and softened respectively, and adjusting the position of the head can be used to further extend possibilities. Lastolite Ezybox Hotshoe, however, takes things even further, turning an ordinary flashgun into a portable softbox. Available in

Review: Ray Flash Rotator

Read more... The Ray Flash Rotator claims to be the first rotating flash bracket to support TTL metering as standard. The unit accepts a standard flashgun and fixes itself into the tripod thread of a DSLR, before it enables the flash to be positioned and fixed at any point around the lens.
