Flashpoint PolarLight LED Lights
From Adorama:
 
April 1, 2015 – After months of research Flashpoint has developed the first ever on and off camera LED light series especially designed for cinema cameras with 4K recording.
 
Our new lights have a polarizing filter which spreads the rays for optimal 4K capture by dispersing the light in a "slower" way and matching the sensitive sensors that 4K cameras have. Available as a standard LED light or with adjustable color temperature, and as an on-camera unit (300 diodes) or an off-camera panel (1350 diodes).
 
The on-camera unit features a universal battery design, silent vented cooling, and up to 3 hours battery life. The off-camera panel can use AC power or V-mount batteries, and is the brightest unit of its kind on the market, even with the polarizing filter.
 
Flashpoint PolarLight 4K LED (Color Temperature Adjustable or Regular)
 
  • On-Camera – $349
  • Light Panel – $1,200
Product Highlights
 
  • Industry changing breakthrough technology
  • Exceptional brightness (1000lux /6150lux)

Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens
Image quality results from the EOS 7D Mark II have been added to the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens review.
 
No surprises here. This lens performs very well even on the high-density 7D II sensor, hopefully foreshadowing a great performance on the incoming Canon EOS 5Ds / 5Ds R. Being realistic, with the great price/performance ratio of the Canon EF 16-35mm f/4 L IS USM Lens, most APS-C users would be better off buying a full frame DSLR and the 16-35 f/4L IS.
 
B&H has the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens available for preorder with "Coming Soon" as the expectation.

Photoflex Closing its Doors
Popular lighting and accessory manufacturer Photoflex has announced via its homepage that it is closing its doors after 30 years in the industry.
 
I own a Photoflex Umbrella with Adjustable Frame and love it; I'm sad to see them go. Hopefully they will reconsider their hasty decision to close and continue to bring us high quality, innovative products as the first rays of sunlight dance on the horizon tomorrow. [Sean]
