Industry acclaimed i1Display Pro Brings a More Accurate Color Viewing Experience to SmallHD Production-Monitors
 
Grand Rapids, MI – X-Rite Incorporated, a global leader in color science and technology, with subsidiary Pantone today announced partnership with SmallHD, the creator of durable production monitors for creative video, filmmaking, and broadcast professionals. SmallHD to bundle and support industry acclaimed X-Rite OEM i1Display Pro to seamlessly manage color calibration for their first-ever line of daylight-viewable, full-HD display with flexible power production-monitor models 1703-HDR, 2403-HDR and 3203-HDR.
 
As a design, manufacturer and distributor, SmallHD seeks to continue being an innovator, leading the on-camera monitor industry by bringing filmmakers affordable quality, durability and functionality to their professional monitor-displays. Known for outstanding customer support, SmallHD is driven by the needs and requests from their customers and filmmakers alike.
 
“It’s an exciting time to be a filmmaker, as camera technology evolves more rapidly than ever before. With demand for visual content at an all-time high, so is competition. The modern filmmaker needs confidence in knowing if the shot is in focus and that the color being displayed is accurate. It’s working more efficiently than ever before and having fun in the process. Our production monitors boost the confidence for content creators that find themselves in various indoor/outdoor shooting environments.” states SmallHD CEO, Weston Phillips. “Our partnership supporting X-Rite i1Display Pro for our new line of production displays, including our first-ever line of daylight-viewable HDR production monitors, supports our commitment to give customers a more accurate, professional color viewing experience.”
 
With a century of color theory science behind the X-Rite brand, the i1Display Pro is the ultimate solution for creative professionals who demand speed and flexibility to attain color accuracy. Accurate color representation on screen is paramount for the video and film industries, the i1Display Pro delivers fast measurement speed and unrivaled color accuracy on all modern display technologies. These benefits are especially important whether capturing or editing footage. i1Display Pro includes video color standards, for a more accurate color workflow.
 
“We are very excited to have our OEM i1Display Pro bundled across the new line of SmallHD Production-Monitor displays to enhance viewing accuracy. The announcement aligns with SmallHD recently released larger daylight-viewable HDR production monitors,” said X-Rite Vice President of Product Marketing Chris Winczewski. “The partnership with SmallHD demonstrates our focused commitment for the expansion of X-Rite’s photo and video products into the video, filmmaking and broadcast markets.”

B&H has a shipment of Canon EOS 1D X DSLRs in its warehouse and is in the early stages of shipping preorders. Because of the long hiatus, preorders may take a few days to ship.
 
Note that the free 64GB CFast 2.0 memory card and reader deal ($300.00 value) was scheduled to end once the camera came into stock. B&H has yet to change the camera's stock status, so there's still time to take advantage of the great bundle deal.
 
Update: Adorama has the 1D X II Premium Kit (with free memory card) listed as in stock.

Accidents happen all the time. One minute you’re embracing your creativity and capturing amazing photos and the next minute you’re staring down at what’s left of your Canon camera after its been dropped off a cliff, smashed by an overeager toddler, knocked off the picnic table and into the pool, or had an extra-large latte (no whip) spilled all over its LCD screen. Talk about a creativity buzz kill.

From the Profoto YouTube Channel:
 
Sometimes the ambient light is just perfect. But usually it’s not. It’s too bright. It’s too dark. It’s the middle of the day when you want a glowing sunset.
 
That's why we use flash. With flash you’re in full control. If it’s too bright you use it to overpower the sun. If it’s too dark you light up your subject. If it’s the wrong time of day you add an orange color gel and create your own sunset.
 
The trick is to make it look natural. People shouldn’t be able to notice the flash light. They should pay attention to the image, not the technique behind it.
 
In this video, commercial photographer Adam Angelides shows you how. He uses color gels to recreate warm sunlight. He uses a large and deep umbrella as fill light. He uses High Speed Sync to control the ambient light. He uses gels to create a flare. All this in under five minutes.
 
B&H carries the following products:
 
Note: For a limited time, the Profoto B1 comes with a free Profoto OCF Beauty Dish and Speedring.
